Products I am loving this week: My Oopsie Loopsie, I promise you guys that it really saves you so much money. It is best to use in the beginning of pregnancy before you have to wear maternity pants full time. You just loop it through your pants button hole and you are done. I love it, especially with my jeans. I also plan on using these alot post baby when your regular clothes don’t quite fit yet. I love how unnoticeable it is, there is no bulging or gap that shows under your shirt.

 

 

 

 

Get your Oopsie Loopsie right here, a four pack is only $9.99 and free shipping!

Products I am loving this week: My Dapper Snapper!!!! This really has saved me hundreds of dollars. I dont have to buy lots of maternity pants. I can just put on a pair of my normal pants and even though they dont zip or buckle, I just use my dapper snapper. I love it because unlike belly bands, this really keeps your pants in place. I have a problem with my pants always sliding down but with the Dapper Snapper, it really does stay at your waist. And it is super easy to use, you just place it through your belt loops and snap it. They also offer kid sizes so that you dont have to keep buying new pants for the kiddos. You can buy one size up and then use the Dapper Snapper to keep the pants in place. I use them frequently with my son Dominic because he is really tall and I have to buy the next size up but then the pants are huge in the waist so the Dapper Snapper is amazing. Since it goes in the back of the pants, Dominic cant play with it or take it off. They come in lots of different colors and fun prints as well. Highly recommend!!!!

Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party | Leave a comment

By Ashley Devonish | Category: Family Focus, Surprize Me!, The Journey of Motherhood

I know I am a little late in posting these but I threw my son a Yo Gabba Gabba party for his 2nd birthday a couple weeks ago. We had a ton of fun. We held the party at Sugar Creek Baptist Church, they have an amazing indoor playground that you can rent out for parties. Considering we had Dominic’s 1st birthday party at our house, this birthday was incredibly easy and non stressful. :-) Hope you enjoy the pictures. We had a ton of friends and family show up. Dominic had a blast and got more gifts than I know what to do with.

 

 

I made the invitations myself, I cut out 5×7 rectangles using silver scrapbook paper and then printed out and cut the shapes of DJ Lance’s boom box.

 

 

 

 

I decided to keep it simple this year. The cake was the most amazing cake ever! It was so yummy. Big thank you to Carrie Made the Cake here in Houston. If you need a cake, she does an amazing job!

Here are the party favors. I just did squirt bottles and Beanie Babies. The Beanie Babies were a huge hit! I had trouble keeping them on the table for very long.

I did really simple food: pizza, fruit, cupcakes, cookies and cake. Viola!

Dominic loved that slide!

 

DJ Lance in the house!

Mom and dad really blew out the candles but that’s okay because I am pretty sure the guests did not want Dominic’s spit all over the cake.

 

Successful party! Birthday boy was exhausted :-) Happy Birthday baby!

Sleep: I have been having some rather vivid and weird dreams lately but other than that sleep is okay
Best moment this week: Doing our gender ultrasound!!!! :-)
Miss Anything? I miss not having to pee every 10 minutes
Movement: still just a little movement, not feeling the full blow kicks yet
Food cravings: I have had a sweet tooth this week (which is unusual for me when I am pregnant)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nada.
Have you started to show yet: yes I definitely feel bigger this week

Products I am loving this week:  All throughout my first trimester and still to this day, I have been using my Belly Armor Belly Band. It keeps the potentially damaging radiation from getting to the baby. Before getting pregnant, I never thought about the radiation we get from our cell phones, laptops, computers, etc. And although we don’t really know the full effects of radiation yet on pregnancy, I know that I don’t want to chance it. You wear the Belly Armor Belly Band just like you would any other band. It’s so easy and I just like I am protecting my baby because literally I am using technology all day every day. You can even test the band out to make sure it is stopping radiation, all you have to do is wrap your cell phone in the band and watch your signal bars fade away. So you will continue to see me use my Belly Armor belly band throughout my pregnancy. And I really can’t recommend it enough, they also offer a Belly Armor blanket or full t-shirt if those options fit your lifestyle better.

 

 

 

 

 

You can get your Belly Armor Belly Band right here. And this week only, they are on sale for $56.99 (originally $66.99) and free shipping!

Gender Reveal…..It’s a | Leave a comment

We are so excited!!! Another boy. I was wanted two of the same regardless of whether they were girls or boys. I have to say that I am a little relieved that it is a boy because that means I dont have to buy new things. I already have everything for boys and can just hand down Dominic’s used clothes and toys. I am also a little bit apprehensive since I grew up with nothing but sisters.  Regardless of that, my husband is beyond thrilled. He is a super sports fanatic so I know there will be many sporting events and dirty laundry in my future! So it looks like I am still the queen of this household!
