Products I am loving this week: Loving my Undercover Mama Cami. This cami is typically a nursing cami but I love to use it all the time. It is super soft and is really long so it covers the belly. This cami is really going to be the most useful once I start nursing the new baby because it allows you to turn any shirt into a nursing shirt. All you have to do is snap it onto any nursing bra and voila, you are done. It is a genius idea. It functions as an undershirt, keeping your back, sides and belly covered as you nurse. LOVE IT!

 

 

 

You can get yourself (or a friend) an Undercover Mama Nursing Cami right here for only $24.99 and free shipping! Trust me, you will use this thing everyday while nursing.

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!
