Winter skin?

>> Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway for a Milan Maternity top of choice! Click here to enter!

For most places, winter is starting to set in. For our family, that means the fight against dry skin
begins. Luckily, our fight is a little easier, thanks to a pediatrician who told me about Vanicream. Both of my kids have eczema, and Vanicream is the only non-prescription thing I've found that works. And according to the website it's "Beneficial in skin problems such as atopic dermatitis (eczema), psoriasis, ichthyosis, and winter itch which may be aggravated by lack of moisture". And Vanicream is made without "dyes, fragrance/masking fragrance, parabens, lanolin, & formaldehyde."

I realize that I sound like one of those ridiculous infomercials or something, but seriously, it's some good stuff for you and your little ones. Definitely a must have for pregnant bellies. You can find it at pretty much any drug store, and of course tons of places online.

A trick of the trade---Holiday Edition

>> Monday, December 12, 2011

It's that time of year where gift giving is at an all time high. If you are doing some gift giving yourself, and will be giving to the mini-humans in your life, I have a life saving tip for you!

Let me paint you a picture:

You know how fun it is to see the little ones open presents. Their face is full of anticipation. You are full of anticipation yourself, waiting to see how excited they will be about said present.

They open it. They are sooo excited!! It was just what they never knew they wanted. And then...

the box it's packaged in has to be opened, and it's taped shut with about 24 pieces of heavy duty tape. You see their excitement dwindle just a little by the time the box is finally removed. Then, after removing said present from the box, you find that it is fastened to cardboard with approximately 92 builders grade plastic fasteners. After finally finding some scissors and removing said 92 plastic fasteners, excitement levels are at an all time low. Then you realize said present needs batteries. And...do you have the right kind of batteries? And who replaced your excited, happy child with this frustrated, impatient one?

This happened a few too many times before we finally got a tip. One that made me think..."Uhhh....Duuuh." And now present opening is much less stressful and way more exciting.

Tip: Do all that stuff before you wrap it.
(Told you it would be a "duh" moment, but not all of us think of these simple things.)

Remove the tape from the box, cut the plastic holders, insert batteries, (do whatever else needs to be done to make it easily accessible and ready to use) replace present in box, THEN wrap the presents!

I promise you, your life will be much, much improved this holiday season!

Marianna review and Milan Maternity Giveaway

>> Wednesday, December 7, 2011

I love a good maternity/transitional/nursing top. Really...what could be better than something that can last you through all the stages of pregnancy and after?
I recently got the Marianna top (in both white and teal blue, because I was taught that when you find a great top to buy it in all the colors that are available) and I'm glad I got both. It's one of my favorites. I am always in need of a good white top, and I love the color of the teal blue one, too. I love that it's a cute nursing top for now, and that it'll still work later when I'm pregnant again. I also love how soft this top is, and that I felt so comfy in it, while not looking frumpy.

We are giving away one of the new Milan Maternity tops of your choice to one lucky winner.

There are multiple ways to enter, and here's how:

1) Go to the Milan Maternity website and tell us which top you would like if you win.

2) Enter our Briarmark giveaway here (Briarmark giveaway is open until Thursday Dec 15, 11:59 pm PST) One entry for each time you enter the Briarmark giveaway. (Leave a separate comment for each entry you made)

Briarmark Baking Supply Review and Giveaway

>> Friday, December 2, 2011

If you don't already know, we're huge sports fans around here. Watching or playing, we're always up for a good game. And for you soccer moms, here's something that your kids will love you for! Not to mention your husband... We recently had the opportunity to review some fun baking supplies from Briarmark.com. Briarmark offers a variety of sports themed baking supplies such as cake pans, sucker molds, and cookie cutters: all to go along with your favorite sport or team, and at incredibly affordable prices. We had the chance to review the football cake pan and football sucker mold, as well as Briarmark's exclusive soccer ball cookie cutter. My favorite thing about all of these products was how crazy easy they were to use! Having done quite a bit of baking and even candy making with molds, I'm always hesitant to use something new, but everything turned out beautifully, and with very minimal effort. And being a busy mom, minimal effort is definitely what we're going for!

For the football sucker molds, you can use chocolate candy melts or just regular chocolate chips. I used semi sweet chocolate chips and little bit of vanilla almond bark (you can find this at most grocery stores) to make it smooth. I also added coconut flakes and walnuts to some of them and they came out just as great! I piped some melted vanilla almond bark into the mold where the football threads went and it turned out perfect. They were so easy! They probably only took me about 15 minutes to prepare.

I was so happy with how my football cake turned out!! It was so easy too- just pour a prepared cake mix into the football cake mold and bake! I made some homemade chocolate frosting and did the thread detail with melted white chocolate. Again, so easy!

A friend of ours tried out the Briarmark's soccer ball cookie cutter for their child's soccer team party and the cookies turned out so cute! Briarmark has the perfect royal icing recipe (along with other tips and ideas) posted on their website. The thinner royal icing is AWESOME for allowing you to frost the whole cookie, and then, using their food coloring markers, decorate and color your cookie as desired. The cookie cutter used along with the food coloring markers makes it easy for soccer moms to bake cute cookies for after the game without having to spend countless hours making different colored frostings and decorating. The markers also make it easier for kids to help! LOVE them.

Perfect for sport-themed birthday parties, game day or tailgate parties, or to show your team spirit, Briarmark.com has you covered!

Briarmark is giving one lucky reader their choice of either their exclusive soccer ball cookie cutter, or the football cake pan!

Here's how to enter: (leave a comment for each entry completed)

What I Wish I Had Known #2

>> Thursday, December 1, 2011

I posted a few weeks ago about the number 1 thing I wish I'd known about pregnancy/birth. From here on out, there isn't much of a particular order, just things I wish I'd known in general.

The second thing I think of is wishing I'd known (sooner) that going to midwives was a viable option. The ob/gyn office I was going to was...less than stellar. They didn't explain much to me, and they didn't spend a whole lot of time with me. I even found out later that there was a pretty important issue with my pregnancies that they never even talked to me about.

I felt like pregnancy and childbirth was a HUGE important thing, and I should feel happy and comfortable with the person/people that would be helping me in the process, and I just didn't feel that way at the place I was going.

Luckily I talked to someone who talked to me about midwives. Turns out midwives can and do deliver at hospitals, they do all the same tests that are done with an ob/gyn, you can get an epidural, and midwives generally have an ob/gyn that they work with so if complications do arise they are there to help.

I know that midwives aren't for everyone. But I have to say, I was very happy with the change. I made the switch several months into my pregnancy. They took the time to talk to me, were all very friendly, and I didn't feel like I was being rushed through my appointments. The births were also a lot different than I've heard from other people in that the midwife was at the hospital the whole time I was in labor, checking on me regularly, and she was even there the whole time I was pushing.

So if you aren't happy where you are, know that you can switch, that you deserve to be happy with where you are going, and that midwives could be a possible option.

Milan Maternity Spotlight

>> Wednesday, November 30, 2011

I admire any mother of multiples, and Trish is no exception! She is mom to a 4 year old daughter and 1 year old twin boys. Her first birth she didn't get an epidural (something I wasn't brave enough to try the first time around, so I admire her for that, too) and had to have a c-section with her twins. She spends her spare time sewing, and I've seen her work and have to say, she's super talented. She is a busy woman, but she made some time to answer some questions for our spotlight. Find out what Trish had to say...

The first time you were pregnant, was there anything that surprised you or caught you off guard about pregnancy?
*I was surprised at how easy it was for me. After hearing horror stories about morning sickness and feeling awful, I was so lucky to not have anything like that. The only time I felt bad was when I stopped drinking coffee cold turkey. I got headaches for a couple days because of the lack of caffiene.

Have you announced your pregnancies to your husband or family members in any fun and memorable ways?
*When I found out I was pregnant the second time I had my daughter tell my husband. Then I made her a "big sister" shirt to wear when we told our parents and waited to see when someone noticed. It was fun waiting to see who saw it first

What was your favorite part of your pregnancies?
*feeling the babies move. It was so exciting to me the first time I was pregnant to feel and eventually see my baby moving. Also, people can be really nice to you while you are pregnant!

With your first child, was there anything you wish you had known about labor that you weren't prepared for?
*There is no way to explain to someone the pain you will go through. People will try to explain and prepare you for that but I think it's impossible.

How did you come to the decision to have your daughter without any pain medication and was it easier than you thought it would be?
*There are a few reasons I decided not to have any pain medication. One, I didn't want my baby to have pain meds in her new little body as soon as she was born. I'd read that they can make the baby drowsy for the first few days too. Another reason was that we were paying for her birth out of pocket so I was going to try my best to not get an epidural. All those good intentions, then when I was actually in labor and dialated to 8 and begging for an epidural, they told me it was too late. I'm glad they didn't give it to me anyways because she was born a very short time after I asked for it.

What did you find helpful in coping with the pain of labor?
*Honestly, I think I just zoned out. My husband tells me things I did and said that I don't remember. For a while the nurses wouldn't let me move because they had a monitor on my daughter. Then the doctor came in and told them to get the monitor off her and I was able to change positions instead of just laying on my back. So, I think trying to move around a little through contractions might help.

When you found out you were having twins, what was your first thought?
*No way. It's not possible! I had no idea how this was going to happen. How would I be able to carry 2 babies for 9 months? What about after they were born? Would I be able to leave my house ever again? How is my daughter going to handle this? All those questions and more went through my head in about 2 seconds. I was in disbelief for a while. Then, once I realized it really was happening, I felt like the luckiest person in the world.

I think we all have those one or two things that have to get done around the house that we hate. What are those things for you and what do you do to make doing them more tolerable?
*All of it. I don't like cleaning. When I win Publishers Clearing House ( because I don't play the lottery) I will get a house keeper. But to narrow it down to one I'll say doing the dishes. I've never liked doing them even when I was a little girl. To get myself to do them I remind myself that it really doesn't take that long to do and when I'm done the kitchen will look so much better. And I tell myself to just do it!

What things do you do with your daughter when the two of you get to spend time together?
*I ask her what she wants to do. She likes to color and do puzzles so that's what we do a lot of times. We do crafts too

Is being a mom to twins harder or easier than you thought, and how so?
*I prepared myself while I was pregnant that this was going to be quite the journey. It is hard. For probably the first 6 months I hardly slept. They were not good sleepers til about 11 months. They are 13 months now and they are good babies but they are normal 13 month-olds x2. Twice the crabbiness while teething, twice the messes, twice the climbing...etc. One thing that I'm surprised about being easier for me to deal with than before is the crying. The times when both boys and my older daughter are all crying for whatever reason, thankfully that doesn't happen too often, I just laugh. I think, this is like a movie. All three of my children are crying at once, they all want me to hold them and for some reason I'm not sitting on the floor with them crying also.

As mothers we have some special moments with our children that we always remember and cherish. Do you mind sharing one or two of those experiences?
*I love that my daughter is in love with her baby brothers and they love her just as much. It's sweet how excited they get when they see each other when they've been away from each other. Something else I love is that my boys like to cuddle with me. My daughter is the biggest daddy's girl you've seen so it's nice to have my baby boys to cuddle with

Who has been a great example to you as a mother and what have you learned from that person?
*This may sound cliche, but my Mom and Mother-in-law are both wonderful women that I hope to be like some day. My Mom gives her time to people like no one I've seen. You know she will be there to help you no matter what. She's so caring of others. My Mother-in-law is a wonderful wife and awesome mother. My in-laws have 6 kids and my MIL cooked 3 hot meals, the house was always clean, she home-schooled them all, I could go on and on. They are both an inspiration to me.

When you are having a rough day, and counting down the hours until your husband gets home so you can get a break, what is it that you are looking forward to do as a stress reliever?
I like to sew. It's one of the few things I can do where you can actually tell I've gotten something done.

When we are pregnant or have kids, it seems like we get all sorts of advice, wanted or not, from all sorts of people. Some good some bad. What is one of the best pieces of advice you have gotten?
*Do what YOU feel is right for you and your baby. There is so much out there to make you feel like you aren't doing enough or you are doing too much. Just do your best!

What is your families favorite meal?
*Chicken enchiladas and sweet corn cake. We all love this meal. I've brought it to some other families and I've been asked for the recipe several times.
Kids obviously keep us super busy and it can be hard to spend time with our significant other. On the occasions that you and your husband are able to get out of the house together, how do you like to spend that time?
*Date night! I love when my husband get to spend some time together. We aren't the most exciting people when we go out. Mostly we go out to dinner. We go out to eat at places that we cant bring 3 active kids to!

What is the best thing about being a mother?
* Before I had my children, moms would tell me you can't imagine the love you will have for your kids. I knew I would love my babies but they were right! I LOVE my kids! I love that they love me too.

Well, imagine my joy when I saw these at Target last week:

And while doing an internet search for them, I found out that Huggies now has slip on diapers...ya know, for our sweet little ones that just can't seem to lay down and stop squirming for a 5 second diaper change.

A trick of the trade

>> Wednesday, November 23, 2011

As you probably noticed in my "Mother of 2"? post from last week, my son wears his pj's backwards. Allow me to explain...

You see, when you are an experienced mother (not like me) you know little tricks like turning pj's backwards. It was about this time last year that we started finding my son, then 2, in his crib. In his crib without his pj's on. In his crib without his diaper on, too. In his crib naked after doing...the deed.

I was beside myself. I found some footed pj's that had a zipper in the back, but they were way too expensive. I'd had people tell me to cut off the feet of his footed pj's and turn them backwards, but seeing as how my son would freak out about a little hole in the toe of his pj's, I didn't think that would fly too well. When I took my problem to facebook (because that's where all problems are solved) an experienced mother told me that I didn't have to cut off the feet of the footed pj's to turn them backwards. All you have to do is twist the bottom part of the legs so the feet face front when the zipper is in the back.

It was wonderful and welcome advice. I didn't need to spend an arm and a leg on the special backwards pj's and I didn't have to ruin all of his perfectly good pj's cutting the feet off. It takes a little bit of practice to get the feet just right, but after nearly a year of having to do this, we are definitely pro's.

Not to mention the comic factor of it all.
Happy Thanksgiving from our backwards super hero family to yours!

I'm not going to lie, I love baby showers. In fact, I think I need to find some more friends that are going to be having their first baby soon, just to insure that I can go to their baby shower.

If you are hosting or having one soon, here's some cute ideas for baby shower invitations:

You can get this jpg file that is customized for your shower that you can than print off wherever you'd like at etsy.

Here's a couple of cute ones I found on pinterest that can easily be made (although the links to their origin weren't working)

And how cute are these sweet, hand painted invites on etsy?
Needless to say, I didn't even scratch the surface of all of the cute invites out there to buy or make.

Mother of 2?

>> Thursday, November 17, 2011

(Do me a favor. Either 1) Pretend that my house isn't so messy or 2) Be glad to know that you aren't the only one with a messy house.)

I've been thinking recently about the life as a mother of two. Just when you think you have the whole motherhood thing figured out, another child comes along and everything changes. Here's a list I came up with for what it's like with 2 children (although I'm sure this applies to any number of children beyond 1.)

You know you're a mother of two when:

-Silence isn't golden, it's scary. Any time both of your kids are being quiet, you wonder what trouble your kids are getting in to.

-You regret not following everyone's advice with the first one to nap when the baby naps, because now that you have 2 you can't find any time to nap.

-When you have to leave at 3 to go somewhere, you start the process (and I mean process!) of getting the kids shoes and coats on at 2:15.

-The sentence "Be nice to your brother/sister" comes out of your mouth approximately 1,573 times a day.

-It seems like you have to schedule in your own potty breaks because you are either too busy to go, or your kids seem to try to kill each other the second you try to walk into the bathroom.

-You find yourself running to grab a camera to capture the moment every time your kids are actually playing together (or beside each other, as the case may be) peacefully.

-You remember clearly giving your first child a bath on a regular basis, but now you can't remember the last time anyone in your house has bathed.

-Your number one goal in life is getting your two kids on the same nap schedule.

-Running errands with only one child feels like a vacation.

-Sleep.... What's that??

Oh, snap!

>> Monday, November 14, 2011

Sometimes babies grow at an alarming rate. Which is great since our whole goal as parents is to keep our children healthy and growing. The downside: clothes fit for approximately 2 seconds. Which is especially hard when something is so cute and they only fit in it once. So I was so excited when I saw these two items.

First is Disney's Cuddly Bodysuit. They are so cute, come in styles for boys and girls, and have 2 rows of snaps so they can fit your growing baby a little bit longer. Why did it take me so long to find out about these?

Second is another item that I am kicking myself for not finding out about sooner. Onesie extenders!
My kids could have gotten so many more uses out of a lot of cute onesies if I'd had these!

Both of these items will make great baby shower gifts, and will make me feel a lot better about spending money on clothes that I know won't fit for very long otherwise.

You know you're a mom when you get excited about double snap onesies and onesie extenders.

nesting instinct?

What I Wish I Had Known #1

>> Friday, November 4, 2011

Although I didn't take child birth classes or anything, I felt like I educated myself pretty well on pregnancy and childbirth reading books and articles online. There were some things that I still wasn't informed of, though, that I wish I'd known.

If I was asked which thing I wish I had known the most, just so I could prepare myself mentally, it would be that they will push and massage your stomach after birth to make sure there are no blood clots and to help the uterus contract and go back to it's normal size.

From my perspective, it was the most painful part of the birthing process. I think I may have cried when they did it, but ya know...it's all a blur. But I do so clearly remember how painful it was.

From what I've read online, some people say it isn't necessary. All I know is that they did it after both of my babies were born. I've also read that some people didn't think it was that painful, so I guess it's a matter of perspective or your level of pain tolerance (Although I did birth a baby with out an epidural, so I'd say my pain tolerance is pretty high.)

So there you have it. Now you can prepare yourself mentally for this part, a benefit I didn't have first time around. You're welcome.

Some better options

>> Thursday, October 27, 2011

I LOVE sweets. Chocolate, and ice cream, and cookies, and cake, and more ice cream, and more chocolate, and more cookies. Truely my biggest weakness. And when I am pregnant/nursing, it's even harder for me to resist the cravings. And I am a firm believer that giving in to cravings a little bit is better than denying yourself the treat and then bingeing when you do finally give in.

Luckily there are options that are slightly better than others. Here are a few things you can try.

--According to Dr. Oz one option of a healthier alternative is double churned (or slow churned) ice cream. It has more air in it, but is still creamy. It is also made with real cream, which means its less likely to have artificial sweetners. Half a cup is around 100 calories, which is better than most frozen yogurts.

--Another healthier alternative that Dr. Oz suggests is dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate. It has flavonoids, which are an important antioxidant that helps lower blood pressure. You want dark chocolate with a cocoa conent higher than 70%. Another good option is to have dark chocolate with almonds since they provide healthy fat.

--Now that the weather is cooling down a bit, a good option when you are craving chocolate is hot chocolate instead of a candy bar or cookies. Swiss Miss has a breakfast blends hot cocoa that has only 60 calories. Or you can go for the marshmellow hot cocoa for 110 calories.

--If you are baking treats yourself, use applesauce or canola oil in your cakes and cookies instead of butter. Just make sure to use the natural applesauce, not the kind that has loads of sugar to sweeten it up.

Saranoni Lush Blanket Review and Giveaway!

>> Friday, October 21, 2011

I have a four year old that likes to wear shorts around the house everyday, no matter the temperature, so she pretty much has a blanket in every room. They're all very loved and used, so it was getting to be about time to buy her a new blanket. When Saranoni contacted us recently and asked if we'd be willing to do a review of their one of their luxurious blankets, I jumped at the chance! Saranoni carries blankets, clothing and shoes, and other designer baby gifts (check out their CUTE matching bracelets for mommy and baby).

Saranoni carries three sizes of blankets:

Mini blankets, which are 15x20 inches and perfect for travel or when your child needs a "little lovey".

Regular blankets- 30x40 inches and great for babies and toddlers.

Extra Large blankets- 60X80- Great for adults and family snuggle time! Over 5 pounds of warmth! I was thinking I might need to snag one of these for myself after being envious of the blanket Saranoni sent my daughter, but this size is currently sold out due to high demand, and will be restocked at the end of November! Looks like it'll be just in time to be a Christmas present to myself!

We were sent the 30x40 Pink Swirl/Chocolate Lush blanket, and my daughter absolutely LOVES it! It's incredibly soft, with a luxuriously smooth and soft chocolate lush side, and slightly textured pink swirls on the other, with a minky boarder. One thing that I was extrememely happy and surprised by, was how thick it is. It's really thick and REALLY warm.

Perfect for my shorts wearing daughter. Despite her summer wardrobe choices, she's all cozy and warm thanks to Saranoni. Saranoni blankets are also machine washable and wash really well compared to others we've had. Hands down, Saranoni blankets are a favorite in our house!

Saranoni is generously giving one of our readers a bundle prize of both a 30X40 lush blanket AND a 15X20 lush mini blanket! Lucky!
