• Newborn Essentials | Must Have Newborn Items

    Creating our baby registry was by far the most overwhelming experience during my pregnancy. How do you know what you will need or what is just a gimmick? What if your baby doesn’t like something and you need to try something else? We wanted to be over-prepared instead of under-prepared because Amazon in 1-hour doesn’t work in our neighborhood quite yet 😉 These items are the can’t-live-withouts, the must have newborn items for our first 6 weeks of Olivia’s life. Some of these things may not work for your baby, but they were all essential to keeping our sanity. Baby Susher– we ended up buying this 2 weeks into newborn living…

  • Family First Pt. 1

    Look at that I was able to use two F’s for my title today. I’m not sure if I have ever really posted about my family, so I guess now if the perfect time to do it. I come from a family of 5 kids, and I am the oldest. The first reaction I get it is, “There are five of you?! How did your mom do it?”. Honestly, she did it fine, great actually. My mom is seriously Wonder Women in my eyes. So now for my first post of Family, I will get to life with 4 siblings. My first 7 years on this earth were spent as an…
