Sippy/Straw Cup Review

Link to Sippy/Straw Cup Review

We have tried many sippy cups.  Some I really love and others that made me want to scream and walk it off.  There is nothing worse than finding that your child's sippy cup has leaked into their diaper bag or onto their clothes or your car etc.   Finding the perfect sippy cup is essential to having a happy baby and a happy mommy.

Let's start with the worst.

5.  I bought these Munchkin Click Lock Re-usable  straw cups at Babies R Us.  I thought they...

Recently I have been planning our little one's nursery and the one thing I know for sure is that we will have a gallery wall on at least one of the nursery's walls, so I have been keeping my eye out for cute prints. I think one of these adorable prints from The Black Apple on Etsy will be perfect.

This little kitten reminds me of Olive.  I can't decide which one I like better.  Which...

Last night while on my way to Old Venice, a tiny kitten ran in front of my car on Main Street.  She looked too tiny to be by herself and I was worried she would get run over, not to mention it was 100 degrees outside.  I tried for about 15 minutes to catch her but didn't have any luck, so I enlisted the help of my friend and neighbor Anna.  We tried for another 15 minutes with no luck.  We decided to go inside and eat...

I spend more time than I should searching Google  images, trying to identify either a plant or a bird that I have seen in my yard.   For the past two weeks, I have been picking leaves off this tree I hate and bringing them inside to try and figure out what the hell it is.  I kind of want to pull it up because it cast a small shadow on a corner of our garden and harbors Poison Ivy but I...

Our friend Ed recently had a 90's themed birthday party thrown for him by his lovely wife, Kristen.   The party was a blast.  There was an awesome 90's play list, 90's trivia, fun 90's food (i.e. Fruit by the Foot and Bagel Bites) and best of all, slap bracelets.  Ben and I also had a lot of fun getting ready for the party, so I decided to share what we wore.  We were inspired by 90s grunge and My So Called Life (or maybe that was just me.)

I developed a love of  stamps while planning my wedding.  I was especially drawn to beautiful vintage love stamps.  I  love that the USPS (United States Postal Service) realizes that every year some lucky girl is planning her wedding and would love nothing more than to have a beautiful stamp to stick on the many wedding invitations she will be sending out.    This's year's love stamp is called the Garden of Love and they are oh so pretty. The USPS started releasing Love inspired stamps in 1973.  Some are better...

I love finding new iphone applications that make my life easier or improve  my life in some little way. Here are a couple that I am into right now: 1.  Fooducate I love this app because you can scan barcodes at home or at the grocery store and it tells you all about your item.  It grades the item, tells you about harmful ingredients and even offers alternatives.  I have pretty much scanned everything at my house with a barcode.  Who would have known my Special K Chocolatey Pretzel cereal bar...

Remember YM Magazine?   The Royal Wedding was so beautiful and these little royals are way too cute.

 

So I am kind of obsessed with the Royal Wedding.  But in my defense I have been "stalking" Prince William since about 5th grade.  It was then I realized that Princes were real and there was a very attractive young prince who was my age.  I remember seeing...
