Review: SnoozeShade

Review: SnoozeShade

Reviews 0

One of the biggest problems a parent has to deal with for their baby involves the car seat and the environment. Back in the day, I always had to use a blanket to cover the car seat to protect my baby from the sun, wind, or rain; but it was such a hassle because the blanket would always fall off or flap in the wind and some parts wouldn’t cover… Read more »

Book Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Book Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

There was definitely a lot of hype about this book and overall it was good. I’ve never read anything by Lauren Oliver and the premise of this book was intriguing so I gave it a try. If you’re a dystopian fan then you should give this a read some time. The main character, Lena, bugged me though. She was so set on getting the cure and being good, making sure… Read more »

Project BG2: Week 25 – Miss Cranky Pants

Project BG2: Week 25 – Miss Cranky Pants

Project BG2 1

Time for another entry in the good old photo diary for BG2. Lil’ girl has definitely been super cranky this week. I think it’s time to admit that I’ve got a difficult baby on my hands. She used to be such a great night sleeper, we’d have to wake her up to feed her at night. But, ever since she had her cold a few weeks ago, she’s been waking… Read more »

My Daughter Doesn’t Like Me

My Daughter Doesn’t Like Me

BG1, Parenting 0

Today, I’m linking up with Shell at Things I Can’t Say and Pouring My Heart Out! Yes, I’ve come to the realization that my 6 year old daughter doesn’t really like me much anymore. She loves me, don’t get me wrong, but it’s obvious that she doesn’t want to live with me and doesn’t really care to be around me. I’ve had her living with me all summer now and… Read more »

Review: dENiZEN from Levi’s

Reviews 0

I was so skeptical about putting a pair of jeans after having BG2, and I haven’t worn jeans since the beginning of my pregnancy, because I didn’t want to buy new ones since I’m trying to lose weight right now and I know I couldn’t fit any of my pre-pregnancy jeans yet. I knew if I tried to squeeze my thighs and butt into any of the jeans I had,… Read more »

Book Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Book Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★½

City of Glass is the (original) final installment in The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and I have to say, Clare definitely knows how to end a series with a BANG! I really enjoyed how it all ended and the details of each character’s story and past was so creatively developed that you could see how Clare truly did create a world of her own. The ultimate twist of fate… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 24 – My First Cold

Project BG2, Week 24 – My First Cold

Project BG2 3

It’s Week 24 in the life of BG2, which means she’s technically 6 months (but unofficially until Sept. 2nd) and she’s a lively one. The bad thing about this week was that she got sick sometime around Sunday. It was just a cold, but it was her first, and it has been a rough couple of nights. It breaks my heart to see her so uncomfortable and hear her with… Read more »

Book Review: Wanted by Sara Shepard

Book Review: Wanted by Sara Shepard

Young Adult Book Reviews 0 ★★★★

Wanted is the 8th book in the Pretty Little Liars series and since it’s been awhile since I read the series and I have to say I forgot a lot about it! I’ve also been watching the TV show, which is loosely based on the books, so when I read Wanted, I found myself thinking, “this isn’t how it is on the show” or “I totally forgot they were together”….

Project BG2, Week 23 – Sitting, Standing & Teething

Project BG2 5

Alright, let’s get back into this! We’re chugging right on through the 5th month here. All this girl ever wants to do is sit/stand up or be held. She’s getting to that point where she wants to be entertained and needs attention or else she’ll fuss. She’s finally managed to move forward in her walker, so she’s moving all around the living room, while happily munching on her giraffe. She’s… Read more »
