Happy Wednesday friends! If you have been following along with me on Instagram you know that we just got back from our family vacation in Orlando Florida! Let me tell you that the vacation blues are very real! I’m already planning our next vacation back! Stay tuned for our Disney World blog!
Since we live in the middle of the country and were not wanting to drive 20+ hours with a toddler we decided to fly to Orlando! We recently partnered up with Mitsubishi to test the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander. Let me tell you that I fell in love with it instantly! With flying with a toddler we of course have to have all of the things! Our Mitsubishi Outlander fit all of our luggage and even had more room!
A little background of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander:
- Seats 7 comfortably
- Third row seating (perfect for families and road trips with friends)
- 7″ Display with Apple CarPlay or Android auto
- Adaptive Cruise Control (Helps keep a safe distance)
- Blind spot warning (This was one of my favorite features!)
- Power Glass sunroof (We LOVED how smooth it opened and closed!)
- Power Folding side-view mirrors
- Remote power tailgate (This was a PLUS because I could easily hold Lily and just push the bottom to close)
- Multiview camera system – Not only did it have a back up camera but it showed your view and what was surrounding the car. IT WAS SO COOL!
- MPG 25/30 – For an SUV it has awesome gas milage!
The Mitsubishi Outlander road nicely. In the city and on the highway it was very smooth. You could barely feel any bumps! While we were driving and in the SUV it felt very safe. It would alert us when someone was in our blind spot which again was my favorite part! Another favorite would be the cruise control! Once you are set on cruise and the car in front of you slows down the Outlander would slow us down too. It was SO cool!
If you are in the market for a new SUV you definitely need to check out the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander! You will love it!
Disclosure: This was in partnership with Mitsubishi. However as always, this is 100% my honest review.
Happy Tuesday sweet friends! Finding the perfect car seat is always hard! There are so many car seats on the market! But one brand that I know and trust is Graco. When we brought Lily home from the hospital we had our beautiful Graco Snugride click connect car seat and from then on we were Graco hooked!
I was sent the Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 Car Seat and you guys: THIS IS THE BEST CAR SEAT EVER.
The thing I loved most about the carseat is that it can grow with Lily! This will be the last car seat we will have for Lily! We can use this car seat for 10 years! from 4lbs to 120 lbs. How awesome is that?! Another cool thing is that the 4ever Extend2Fit Platinum allows up to 50lbs so your child can stay rear-facing longer! They even have the Extend2Fit position extension panel that gives more leg room!
The car seat is easy to install & can recline to 6 positions! (Lily is living the good life lol) I love how you can adjust the headrest to fit your child. I feel like the Graco 4ever Extend2fit Platinum 4-in-1 car seat is the “range rover” of car seats! haha
(Lily wasn’t happy I took a picture of her lol)
^ Extension panel for more leg room
Lily has been loving her new car seat! She is more lifted and she can see out the windows so she enjoys riding in the car! Plus I know and trust that she is safe in the Graco 4ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 car seat!
If you are looking for a car seat: LOOK NO FURTHER. Head to Graco 4Ever Extend2Fit Platinum 4-in-1 to get yours today!
I hope you all have a great day!

Happy Wednesday friends! Anyone else a fellow diaper bag lover? Well, I think I truly have found my FAVORITE one hands down! Where has Lily Jade been all my life?! The great thing about my Lily Jade is that it doesn’t even look like a diaper bag! Today I wanted to talk about What’s in my diaper bag and how my Lily Jade crushes it!
First of all, can we just stop and just stare at this beauty? My Lily Jade is the “Madeline Camel & Gold”. You can read about how Lily Jade started HERE
All Lily Jade bags come with 12 pocket removable organizer that can be washed and a changing pad! Can we also just take a moment and admire this beautiful color inside the Madeline?! It gives me all of the heart eyes!
I love to be organized and this organizer is literally the GREATEST thing in the world.
The Madeline bag is just the perfect size! It isn’t too big but is not too small! I love how I can just take the organizer out and leave it at the grandparents house when I want to have a date night with my husband! You can wear this bag 3 ways: Backpack (which is every toddler mom’s dream), messenger style, or carry it on your shoulder.
Anytime I leave the house I always carry the following in my diaper bag: Diapers, Wipes, Wet one wipes, hand sanitizer, fruit snacks, tylenol, gold fish crackers, pacifier wipes, toddler mum mums, and hand/face wipes. Can you tell that snacks are a must have in my diaper bag? haha
Ok guys. If you do not have a Lily Jade bag, what are you waiting for?! This is by far my most favorite diaper bag ever. It is so stylish and beautiful yet functional! Check out Lily Jade’s website and their other bags as well by going to: https://www.lily-jade.com/
The link to my bag is: https://www.lily-jade.com/collections/diaper-bags/products/madeline-camel-gold
Disclosure: This was in collaboration with Lily Jade but this bag rocks my world!
Happy Tuesday sweet friends! As I’m typing this, I’m feeling tons of emotions. For my new followers that do not know, after Lily I had postpartum depression/anxiety. It was a dark place. I had been put on Zoloft and finally started to feel like myself again. Once Lily turned 1. I thought I was better and went off of it. I thought I felt normal.
Fast forward to now and I feel the anxiety/depression creeping back in. It turns out it never went away, and I was still experiencing it. This time I knew right away something was off. I felt more anxiety than I could handle. But kept it quiet. Why? Why did I feel ashamed? I felt ashamed the first time but shouldn’t I have said something? To my husband, to anyone? You would think after going through this the first time I would have been able to say, Hey babe. I’m not feeling right again. It took a few tries until I finally told my husband. He was a little upset that I didn’t tell him how I was feeling.
A part of me thought, oh you know it’s just motherhood. This is normal right? No, feeling this way isn’t normal. This morning I finally went to the doctors and I will be back on Zoloft. I don’t know how I feel right now. I guess just a little embarrassed , a little down. I should have said something sooner but it’s better late than never right? I sort of feel like a burden again to my husband, like great, your wife has depression & anxiety again. But he assures me I’m not a burden. He is seriously the best husband ever and I’m so blessed for him.
So mama, if you’re feeling the way i’ve been feeling, you’re not alone. We are not alone. It’s better to be open about something like this than hiding it and suffering alone. We can get through this together.
Even before I became a mom, I have always been a germaphobe. I always carry sanitizing wipes & hand sanitizer. Even when we stay at hotels no matter if it is a 5 star hotel, I will clean the room. Now that I’m a mom that fear of germs has gone through the roof. A must have for me is my Milk Snob Cover. You might have seen Milk Snob on Shark Tank! It is so genius!
You can use the Milk Snob Cover for high chairs, car seat cover, nursing, & many more! My favorite way to use the Milk Snob cover is to use it as a shopping cart cover. I’ve always wiped down the carts but I love having an extra layer to protect Lily from the germs. Especially during this terrible flu season. We’ve been very lucky so far so that’s why I’m glad we have our Milk Snob cover. I mean, can we talk about how beautiful this cover is? I chose the cover in “Magnolia”. I am floral obsessed so of course this was a no brainer!
I love how easy and lightweight the cover is to carry with us! We cannot leave the house without it! If you would like to know more about Milk Snob just head to https://milksnob.com/

Happy Monday sweet friends! Today I am so excited to share with you about Love Your Melon! I’m sure you have already heard about them but if you haven’t you are going to love them as much as I do! Love your Melon was founded by two friends on a mission to help children battling cancer. Love Your Melon sells the cutest beanies and they even sell apparel! 50% of their profits are given to nonprofit partners that help fight against pediatric cancer.
I love companies that give back. Love your Melon beanies are made with 100% cotton. I absolutely love them! The beanies are so soft & so fashionable yet they actually keep me warm! If you haven’t owned one of their beanies, what are you waiting for?!
Head to https://www.loveyourmelon.com/ and check them out!
I hope you all have a great week!

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I am so excited to be reviewing some Fridababy products that were sent to me. I first heard of Fridababy when my co-worker had gifted me the Nose Frida! If you guys haven’t used the Nose Frida – what are you waiting for?! Nose Frida is a game changer and a MUST HAVE.
Baby Frida sent over DermaFrida, MediFrida, & BreatheFrida.
The DermaFrida: GENIUS! If your baby is suffering from cradle cap, dry skin, or eczema this will definitely help! It’s basically like a spa for you baby! It is so soft and made out of 100% antibacterial silicone! When Lily was a newborn she had bad cradle cap and I wish I would have used this for her! Right now her skin is dry so using this on her has been so helpful!
MediFrida: If your little one doesn’t like taking medicine or has spit-ups while taking their medicine- have no fear! With MediFrida you can insert the medicine with the Frida syringe and insert into the pacifier! How cool is that?! The medicine will go to the side of the cheek, bypassing baby’s taste buds!
BreatheFrida: The Boogerwiper is a tissue and chest rub in one! BreatheFrida contains Chamoille + Aloe+ Vitamin B to sooth sore skin & Menthol + Eucalyptus to breathe easy! This will be perfect for when your babe has a cold or even you. (Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone)
I give all of these FridaBaby products 10/10! If you have been wanting to try these, what are you waiting for?! Head to https://www.fridababy.com/
Have a great weekend!
Disclosure: These products were sent to me by Fridababy however this is 100% my honest review.
Happy Saturday friends! Last weekend I got the chance to visit &Blowdry in Lawrence, KS. I’ve never had a blowout before and so I was so excited to give it a try! Since my MIL was watching Lily, my husband came a long with me! As soon as we walked in we were greeted with smiling faces! They took my coat, handed me a robe, & asked if I wanted a beverage. I of course got coffee because #momlife.
I started with a deluxe pedicure. You guys, it was the BEST pedicure I have ever received. The worker was so nice and so sweet. With the deluxe pedicure I also got a neck warmer and ya’ll it was magical! I was so relaxed! At most places they usually rush your pedicure but I didn’t feel rushed and it was so nice! After my magical pedicure I went to get my first blowout!
I mean who doesn’t like to get their hair washed and massaged right? My stylist discussed with me how I liked to style my hair and we went from there! I felt so relaxed and so pampered! The end result of my blowout: I LOVED IT. My hair felt amazing & looked great! After having my first experience with &Blowdry I give it 10/10! I walked out of there like a BRAND NEW person. I just felt AMAZING.
&Blowdry offers so many services so you will not be disappointed! Their customer service is above & beyond! They are all genuinely nice and not “fake” nice. I felt welcomed and it was seriously the best experience I have ever had!
If you have been looking to try &Blowdry GO NOW. Don’t forget to mention my blog and you can receive a $35 blowout or 10% off other services! (Valid until 2/9/18)
