Nighty Night, Sleep Tight

Getting your child to sleep through the night is a luxury, let's be real! After the first week of sleeping through the night you feel like you have won at parenthood.  We were fortunate, Ella started sleeping through the night at 2 months old (I can sense some of you wanting to punch me right now! Your time will come soon I promise!) Here are some things we did that I think really benefitted us and hopefully will help you and your little one too! 

Chambray Fashion

Chambray, a more lightweight, softer fabric than denim, perfect for your summer roundavou. Chambray is perfect because it goes with any print, color and texture that you already have in your closet. You can dress it up or down for any occasion.

I Want To Thank You, Dad

Woman empowerment is great and all but it is Daddy’s week. Let’s take a step back to thank the males in our lives with Father’s Day quickly approaching. The absence of positive male role models in kids lives impact children more than people realize. With the absence of a male figure the rates are higher on teen dropout rates, drug use, unwanted pregnancy--I could go on forever. There is a serious problem in America with men forgetting how to be men. A woman doesn’t create a baby alone, a male contributes to the process and should be equally as responsible for the upbringing of that child. So can we make a deal? Let’s start making an enormous deal out of Father’s Day, let’s celebrate and cherish all the positive men role models in our lives because they deserve to be recognized too!

Fathers Day Gift Guide

My Dad. Wow, what a man! He has been such a role model for me and my brother, Trey. If you are anything like us, your Dad has always been there for you. Whether it be to help put a bandaid on your first scrape or yell at you for making not so great choices in high school. Now things have come full circle and he is helping support you with your own children. It is hard shopping for someone who has been so influential in your life and means the world to you. With that being said, I teamed up with my husband to bring you a fool proof fathers day gift guide for all the special fathers in your life.

Family Beach Essentials

This Friday Favorites is for all you beach traveling mamas. Ever travel to the beach just to unpack everything and realize you forgot something you didn't even realize you needed? We did!! Our family took a trip to the beach and realized it was to hot for our baby so we packed up and went to the store and bought a beach tent. Going to the beach with a child is a lot of work but definitely worth it. Here are some items that will help your trip with the little one go a little smoother and some goodies for mom.
