Love Personalization? These Notebooks Gotcha Covered!

Disclosure: I received these notebooks in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received. All opinions are my own. If you know me, you know I have a weakness for all things personalization. Seeing my name or my daughter’s name personalized on stationary, clothing, etc just warms my heart. A name is something special to me proud of. You’re stuck with it for the rest of your life (pending you…

Spoil Your Dogs with Leela Ryan Dog Biscuits + GIVEAWAY [Ends 2/2]

Growing up, I was surrounded by a plethora of cats. I was a bonafide cat person. It wasn’t until I started dating Dennis that I slowly, but surely grew a strong liking to dogs. I’m now the proud dog mommy to three Australian Cairn Terriers named Brodie, Abbie and Russo. I’m always searching for loving ways to spoil my furbabies, whether it be toys, hygiene products, or treats. It’s been…

A Letter To My Yet-To-Be Conceived Baby

To my yet-to-be-conceived baby (yes, I flipped back and forth with what I wanted to refer to you as), I have been praying for the day that we would begin trying to conceive you for years. The day that I moved 1,100 miles away from my family in Bartlett, Tennessee to be with your daddy in New York City, my journey to meeting you began. It’s been almost five months, and you’ve yet…

What Bella Got For Christmas!

I am ridiculously late with this post, but it’s better late than never.  On Christmas Eve, we normally exchange gifts to and from each other. Unfortunately, due to Bella being sick, she was only able to open two presents before drifting off to sleep. We just piled those presents in with Santa’s presents, but made sure that Bella read the tags on each present. Thankfully, she felt better by Christmas…

Operation Baby Bump: Cycle Four Results

It’s that time of month again – my Operation Baby Bump results!  For our fourth cycle TTC (click here to read all about TTC lingo), we decided to take a more relaxed approach. Meaning no temping, no OPKs, no incessant symptom spotting, and no (too) early pregnancy tests. We started DTD every other day beginning on CD11, and began increasing it to every day on CD15. We ceased DTD on a…

Christmas Recap: Bella Meets Santa Claus!

I know I am ridiculously late with posting this, but everyone in my household has been sick since before Christmas (and still are). I didn’t think we would make it to see Santa Claus, but we did…on Christmas Eve. I thought it would be more packed than it was, but we only waited approximately 5-10 minutes. I wasn’t close enough to hear her conversation with Santa, but I’m pretty sure…

Merry Christmas From My Family to Yours.

Christmas is here. Yes…to me, December = Christmas. I can’t believe that we’re already celebrating another Christmas. The years seem to be flying by at a pace faster than I can keep up. This is our first NYC Christmas, and that makes the holiday season even more special. Part of me misses having a Southern Christmas, but the other part of me is having a blast immersing myself in the…
