Packing the Diaper Bag for 2 with JJ Cole

    There are lots of things I have to prepare for when it comes to going from 1 kiddo to 2. One thing I’ve been thinking about a lot is being out and about with them.

    The other day Kurtis, Sawyer, and I were our running a particular errand and things got a little stressful. One thing after another went wrong and it was just a long day. When we got home I said to him “can you imagine dealing with that but with two kids with us?”

    It kind of put things into perspective that things are about to get a lot more difficult around here.

    But it’s nothing we can’t handle with a little preparation!

    My Do’s and Dont’s For Baby #2!

    I’m hoping baby #2 is not a much of a “learning experience” as baby #1. Being a new mom is a huge adjustment that I don’t think anyone can really prepare for beforehand. No matter how much research you do, you’re still learning on the job.

    But that’s in the past for me. I’ve been there. I’ve done the sleepless nights before. I’ve tried all the recommended tips, tricks, and products, and know which ones actually work for me. I’m hoping I’m better prepared this time, simply due to the fact that I’ve done this before.

    The Importance of Self Care with At-Home Teeth Whitening

    I did not use this product while pregnant.

    Self care is so important. It’s about more than just vanity. It’s about taking time to pamper yourself, take care of yourself, and feel good about yourself.

    I know as a Mom, it’s hard to make yourself a priority and take time for yourself. I know it’s hard for me. But I’m also the best Mom when I’m feeling my best. When I’m confident and happy. It makes me feel a lot better if I do simple hair and make up, exercise, paint my nails, and even whiten my teeth!

    It’s one of my favorite times of year! The start of every new season brings a new FabFitFun box, and the Spring one did not disappoint.

    Seriously, I think this is my favorite box so far. It had some amazing stuff! And it’s making me so excited for Spring to be here. Warmer weather, picnics, park days, and more! I love this time of year. The Spring box came equipped with so many great things, I can’t rave enough about it. I loved everything.

    If you’re already a member and still waiting for your box (and like surprises), stop reading! If you’re wondering what’s in the box/if it’s worth the cost, keep going, I’m going to share everything it comes with!

    Registering for Baby #2

    This post is sponsored by Pampers. All opinions are my own. Visit my disclaimer page for more information.

    There’s a lot of negative stigma about having a shower or registering for a second baby. Especially if you’re having a second baby of the same gender. And while there are a lot of things I don’t need this time around, there are a few things that I do!

    I don’t need any clothes really, or a crib, toys, a changing table, bibs, a carrier, shoes, burp cloths, car seats, etc. All the stuff I got with Sawyer is less than 2 years old and perfectly reusable. But going from 1 child to 2 is no easy feat. There are definitely still some things I need, important things!

    Friday Favorites- Bootay Bag and Glosshouz pics!

    Hello lovelies!

    Happy Friday! What do you have planned this weekend? We’re hoping to relax and catch up on some much needed sleep. Sawyer kept me up until 4:00am this morning before I finally got to sleep, who knows why. But, I am feeling it today!

    #Momlife, am I right?

    The other night I had the opportunity to check out a new spa in Lone Tree, CO with the Colorado Blogger Babes and had an amazing time! I wanted to share some photos with everyone.
