In my 35 years I have been to many-a baby shower. I have had 2 for my own babies, and I have hosted a handful myself. I have seen every theme under the sun and I have “ooo-ed” and “aww-ed” over the teeniest tiniest baby clothes out there! What I can tell you, as a former expectant mother, is that people don’t really get excited about getting the actual mother-to-be the gifts. Everyone focuses on the gadgets and gizmos, and wardrobe for the bundle of joy but forgets about the less glamorous things like, nipple cream. August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and I thought it would be a great opportunity to round up a few must-haves that would be the perfect gift for an expectant mother!
With the passing of my 35th birthday recently, I have gotten some of the most awesome gifts! I am not only going to share with you about my new favorite things, but I have something fabulous to give away at the end of this post! Check out my Favorite Things List and Enter to Win!
I love a good makeover story. I mean seriously, who does’t? My husband and I have lived in our home a little over 3 years and it’s always been a work in progress as far as getting each room just the way we want it to be and feel. I am so happy to share that our living room, the heart and soul of our home, is finally a space that we love. In doing a little research I found that there were so many ways to have what you want when it comes to decorating without breaking the bank! I am so excited to share with you how you can have a fabulous living space without going broke.
All that’s left on my Christmas list to shop for are those few people I get hung up on every year that are difficult to shop for. You know the type: the friend that literally has everything, the boss that gave you the Christmas bonus, the brother-in-law that is low key your favorite person in the whole family. In my quest to check these last few people off my list, I am rounding up 3 ideas perfect for the difficult to shop for people in your life. Great for a variety of budgets but the best part is the Tile I am giving away at the end of this post! Enter to win today and get it before Christmas if you win!
Since this will be the first year that Cami really knows what’s going on with the whole Christmas thing, I decided to go ahead and start her expectation level the right way for our family by streamlining some things early on.
