Made By Mary Jewelry 

My Girl Disc Necklace from Made By Mary  : By far one of my all time favorite necklaces. The My Girl necklace has been newly added to the Mady By Mary Love Colection. The necklace is perfect for the mom, girlfriend, sister, friend in your life that brings sunshine to your gloomy days. The necklace reminds me of one of my favorite movies growing up, “My girl.” The necklace is dainty and the perefect addition to any outfit.

Hammered Stacking Ring from Made by Mary: Ill be honest, I have been waiting for a Made By Mary ring set for a while now. I mean, lets be honest, who isnt? Their rings are not only beautifyl and dainty but super high quality. Each ring is one of a kind, and adds the perfect amount of “glimmer” to your hand. I personally like wearing all three together, but you can stack or wear seperately, as each way will do just the trick!

One Big Happy Red, White and Cute

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service fighting for our freedom here in the United States of America. This year, Gymboree’s perfectly coordinated “Americana” design fits the occasion to a tee! Find the collection here: http://search.gymboree.com/clothes/Americana
Every year to celebrate Memorial Day, my family gets together at my parents’ house to hang out by the pool. We grill hamburgers, hot dogs and my mom always makes the best homemade potato salad. We may also pour some Margaritas but that’s a story for another time.

This year the family plans to continue our “poolside” tradition. There are always lots of jokes, laughter and stories. We have two babies in the family and they are typically the center of all activity and attention. Gymboree’s Americana outfits will be the perfect addition to our summer tradition.

A couple of my favorite items from the Americana collection are the Flag shirt and the Stars Shirt from the Star Spangled Days collection. Find them here: http://www.gymboree.com/shop/item/boys-flag-shirt-140167128?Port=DataFeed&ad=SLI, http://www.gymboree.com/shop/item/boys-stars-shirt-140167130?Port=DataFeed&ad=CERTONA

Bracelets by: Same SkyFun fact: For those that know me, you know how into gardening I am. Some of my favorite flowers are peonies, ranunculus, and poppies. I’ve mastered the art of growing poppies, and every spring, my garden beds are full of them. Did you know that wearing poppies was a tradition for Memorial Day that originated from the poem “In Flanders Fields.”

Britax

I was so excited to get the Britax Advocate Click Tight ARB Convertible Car Seat. After going through consumer reports and trying to find the safest car seat for Charlie, I finally decided that Britax was the way to go.

The Britax Advocate includes the Click Tight Installation System, which is not only super easy to install, every… single…time…but also is rated one of the highest in safety. The seat has three layers of side impact protection, a impact absorbing base and also a steel frame for maximum safety. It also includes a patented V shaped tether that minimizes seat rotation adn reduces forward movement if the vehicle would get into a crash. The ARB (anti rebound bar) minimizes forces associated with MVA by helping to stabilize the seat. The seat has quickly adjustable 14 position harness, that allows for easily accommodated my growing toddler. Oh and the cover of the entire car seat is easily removed for cleaning purposes… because who even knows what happens in the car seat! I am finally rest assured that Charlie is safe and sound in the back seat of my car. Thank you Britax!

I Love My Pillow

I Love My Pillow.. but really. I really really really love my new “I Love My Pillow.” I don’t think I’ve slept this soundly in years. This morning I woke up and I literally had not moved from when I fell asleep.

I’ve recently tested the Classic Traditional Pillow, the Signature Contour Pillow and the Memory Down Pillow. Of the three of these, I would have bet money that the Memory Down Pillow would have been my choice of pillow. After switching it up and using a different one each night, I realized that the Signature Contour Pillow is my favorite. Unfortunately this is Charlie’s favorite too so we often find ourselves fighting over who gets it… I always give in.

The Signature Contour Pillow has a indent on one side that provides support for the head and neck while sleeping. It literally feels like laying on a teddy bear.

The Signature Contour Pillow and the Traditional Pillow both came with a micro mink pillowcase that is machine washable, stain resistant, hypoallergenic, and comfy. Did I mention comfy? Omg… I want to sleep face down that’s how soft it is…. really!

I Love My Pillow has a guarantee that you will sleep sound for 100 nights or your money back! Each pillow also comes with a 3 year warranty.
