Babies Gift guides kid's essentials Mommy Must Haves Motherhood Pregnancy

Splurge-Worthy gift guide for the mom to be!

I am so excited for this post today!!!!! All new mamas or experienced mamas need items I’ve listed below. Regardless of the price babies need a highchair, car seat, something to sleep in, and a stroller. The swing is something that isn’t necessary but it’s definitely worth spending money on because of it’s functions.     The Bob B-Safe 35 carseat is perfect for my Bob jogging stroller!!!! I’ve heard nothing but GREAT things about this car seat!   This travel…

A big thank you goes to DICK’S Sporting Goods for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own! Well the weather is finally start to change here in Houston and that means cooler temperatures!

I of course went with a larger size so I could…

Expectant mamas holiday gift guide!

I wish I knew about gift guides with my first child. I am sure they were out there of course but I wasn’t blogging or had many friends who were pregnant when I was pregnant with Oakland so I had no clue as to what the best items for your baby were! I love that SO many Instagram shops carry baby items! Some of the items on this gift guide I found on Instagram! Now everything I am recommending today is…

Sleep it Forward Sweepstakes PLUS a $100 gift card to Tiny Prints!

I  received products below plus compensation as a thank you for posting this information..  All opinions are my own. It’s no lie… I love SLEEP! I love taking naps and resting.

Babies kid's essentials Mommy Must Haves Motherhood SUMMER The Ashmores Travels

Road trip essentials for moms and kids!

This summer consisted of a lot of traveling for The Ashmores! When you have kids you can’t really pack light anymore. Those days are gone. The more kids you have the more stuff you need to take. That’s just the truth. I always leave the house wondering “What if I forgot ______!” or ” Did I pack the _____?” I really just should make a checklist before I leave the house to go anywhere! I always seem to forget at least one…

Words a mother never wants to hear.

At least for me these words make me cringe.   Yesterday I was on my phone way too much in front of Ainsley… which is something I am constantly struggling with. She said this ” Get off your phone mommy!” She doesn’t say that to me ever and it really hit home. I DO not want my daughter to remember me always having a phone in my face. The years are short with my little miracles and I have no…

I remember when I was a first time mom and Oakland was about 2 months old I used to set my alarm about every 15 minutes…

Ainsley’s Peppa Party!

Birthday party, birthday, peppa pig, Peppa, 2 years old, 2nd birthday

August 3, 2013 at 1:13 in the morning our precious red- headed baby girl was born into this world. She was 20″ long, weighed 8 pounds, and had blue eyes. I could not believe the beauty I had just given birth to.     It was a fairly short delivery process that involved an epidural and not much pushing. She had a bit of jaundice and had to stay in the NICU for a short time while we were there.…
