Crocodile Crunch

A shop overflowing with adorable boutique items! Mostly for little girls mind you, but I did find a few things for my little man!

 I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win $20 GC to use at Crocodile Crunch so I can buy this blue elephant fabric box!

Another item I have my eye on is the ties and tie onesies - I am impressed that I can ask for different fabric and she is happy to custom make these!

The giveaway is going on right now over at Houghton Happenings!

What to Expect

I am at 19 weeks in my pregnancy (almost half way!) and sometimes I feel so lost as to what is going on with my crazy changing body. Not to mention how the development of my baby is coming along and what I can do to positively influence these changes.

Well, I have several friends who have suggested the book "What to Expect when you're Expecting." I've thumbed through it a few times and wished I had my own copy.I've been thinking about buying it, but kind of feel like it's too late now that I am already in my second trimester.

Well, here is my chance! There is a giveaway for not only this book, but the trio of  "What to Expect" books.Perfect!

I will probably invest in them at some point, even if I don't win, but it's worth a shot. If you'd like to enter you can find more details at Take It From Me! And besides the great books, What to Expect has a great website to track your pregnancy as well!

Oshi mat

Well, as most of you know, I am expecting in May! And so, I have been browsing the wide world of baby gear! There is always a dilemma about what things are absolutely necessary, what things would be useful, and what things are just plain for the fun of it.

I think this Oshi Mat kind of falls somewhere between useful, and..... SO MUCH FUN!

"Oshi mat has a wide range of uses ranging from developmental classes –like music class, mom and baby stimulation class-, to a travel mat, changing mat, play-date mat, outing mat, tummy time mat and many more!"

With just a few great patterns to choose from, I like the simplicity of picking out one of these mats. So many of the baby things I am in the market for require so much research. hahaha.

We don't know if we are having a boy or girl yet, so my favorite design is the giraffe pattern:

I am entering to win a mat kit over at Take It From Me!

Giveway ends 12/17.

Shabby Apple!

YEEEES! Discovered another Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway!

I've been watching Shabby Apple for a while now and compiling a never-ending wish list. There are just so many cute styles. I have put together my dream outfits for every occasion, and for every mood! Of course I am not a millionaire so I have pick and choose - but their prices really aren't bad for what you get, and I wanted to spread the word!
 Now that I am expecting I have been browsing their cute maternity section and have replaced the above wish list item with the new "baby bump" version:
 Of course, I do need a little color in my life right now. Winter is a little drab so I picked out this beauty:
I am putting them on my Christmas List for my husband to see, and hopefully I will find one under the tree!

Right now Shabby Apple is generously offering a giveaway of their Bali Ha'i dress over at Houghton Happenings. Giveaway ends 12/27!
