I know by now that you probably have heard about the Amazon Baby Registry Welcome Box. If not let me tell you a little bit about it. Amazon has a baby registry and it is so easy to make. They offer you a checklist of all the items you may need for your baby. After you sign up to do the registry, you have to go thru and add items from each category, or if you don't need that particular item, you can check those boxes off.
After you finish that, you just need to make a purchase off of your registry that is at least $10. After that item has shipped you will be able to go back to your registry and the welcome box will be available for you to redeem. Add it to your cart. It will look like it is charging you $35 but just keep going til you get to the payment portion of checkout. Once you get there you will see that there is a $35 promotional credit that will wipe away the charge for the Welcome Box. That is all, then your box will ship. Its that easy!
Now onto what I received in my box:
1.) Moon and Back Onesie- Organic Cotton short-sleeve bodysuit in 0-3 months.
2.) Sample packet of Dreft Newborn Laundry Detergent- Good for 1 use.
3.) Avent Samples- (2) Disposable breast pads and a breastfeeding guide
4.) A+D Original Ointment- 1.5 oz tube for diaper rash.
5.) Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion sample- 1 fl oz bottle of baby lotion
6.) Amazing Baby- Muslin Swaddle Blanket with zebra on it.
7.) Avent Natural Bottle- 4 oz bottle
8.) Seventh Generation Samples- (5) Size 1 diapers and (10) wipes
9.) Coupon Code for 10% off of Britax or BOB Gear Travel System
All in all my box was pretty good. Not as good as the box I got last year when I had my twins, but still not too bad. Let me know if you got a box and what samples you got.

Today I want to talk about the Babylist Hello Baby Box. If you are not familiar with Babylist,
it is a website where you can make a baby registry and put anything on it, even from other stores. It is easy to use and it is so nice instead of having multiple registries because maybe a certain store doesn't carry some of the items you want. At Babylist, you can have anything added to your registry in just a couple of clicks.
When you make a registry at Babylist.com, you are then eligible for their Hello Baby Box (you just pay $6.99 for shipping). This box is full of things for you and your baby!

I also received (1) Size 1 pampers diaper, and a (6) count pack of wipes.
7.) Carter's Onesie- 3 Month Plain white short sleeved onesie with a 15% off coupon on a $30 or more purchase. Carter's is my absolute favorite store to buy all my little ones clothing. They are always having a sale and have coupons to save you even more money!

Today I wanted to talk about the Target Baby Registry. I don't know about you, but I love me some Target. Whether I hop online or go to the store, Target is one of my favorite stores to shop. Since I found out I was expecting again, I went straight to Target.com and started my registry. Granted I don't plan on having a baby shower, considering I just had my twins 11 months ago, but I like to make one just to know what I need for baby. Especially this time because we are having a baby girl.
If you are not familiar with the Target Baby Registry you can goto Target's website or go to the store and set it up. They ask you for basic information and then they set you up a page where you can add items to. You can download the app and even scan items from your smart phone and it will go on your registry. How cool is that?
There are a few perks to having a registry at Target.
1. When you make a registry, you qualify to get a free registry goody bag. This bag is filled with samples and coupons. All you have to do is go in the store after creating your registry and go to customer service and tell them you made a baby registry and they go and get you a goody bag! Who doesn't like free stuff??
2. Eight weeks before your due date, Target will send you a coupon for 15% off of items left on your registry. I believe there is one good for online use and one for in store. That can really add up if you have stuff on your registry that they have a cartwheel deal on and if you use your Target Redcard. * Heads up, you don't just have to put baby items on your registry, if there is something else you have your eye on for yourself, other children, husband, etc just add it to your registry. 15% off applies to that as well. Its a win-win!
Like I said earlier I made a registry for baby girl and when I went to Target the other day I picked up my bag. I was really shocked to see all the goodies in it. Check out what was in there!
1. Dr. Brown's Natural Flow 4 oz Bottle
2. Philips Avent Natural 4 oz Bottle & a pamphlet on other Avent products.
3. Sample of Up &Up Diapers (2) in Size 1
4. Sample of Pampers Swaddlers (1) in Size 1 & $5 coupon on Swaddlers diapers when you buy 333 ct wipes.
5. Sample of Eucerin Eczema Relief Creme .35oz tube
6. Sample of Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads(2) and Breastmilk Storage bag(2)
7. Nuk Orthodontic Pacifier in 0-6 mo & coupons for Nuk Simply Natural Bottles ($2) and Nuk Pacifier ($1)
8. Honest Company Diaper(2) and Wipe (10ct) Sample
9. Sample of Water Wipes (10 ct) & $1 coupon
10. Sample of Johnson's Bedtime Bath 1.7 oz bottle
11. Sample of Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion 1oz bottle
12. Sample packet of Palmer's Cocoa Butter for Stretch Marks .17 oz
13. Sample packet of Aquaphor Healing ointment for baby .03 oz
14. Sample of Babyganics Moisturizing Daily lotion packet .15 oz
15. Flyer about ordering a breast pump through Target.
16. Target Coupon Booklet- over $80 worth of coupons that you can use at target for things for you and your baby.
17. A cute reusable bag (Mine was grey with clouds)
I was definitely surprised at all the goodies that came in this bag. A bag I had to pay NOTHING for, all I had to do was take 5 minutes to make a registry. This was totally worth it.
So if you are expecting a baby or know someone who is, think about making a registry at Target. 😊
Sorry for the break, I started out on a roll and then went silent for a while. But I am back with some big and exciting news!
We are expecting our 5th (and final) child!!!! And we found out that it's a GIRL!!!!!!!
After 4 boys that look just like my husband, I am finally getting my girl! AS you can probably guess we are over the moon excited. Our 2 older boys are really excited to be getting a little sister, while the twins don't really know what I am talking about. I am due in the beginning of November. So by Thanksgiving we will have a new little baby to snuggle with.
I am still in shock, as we hadn't planned on having anymore children after the twins were born. But God had other plans and we are so grateful! I plan to add more baby content on here soon. Just wanted to jump on here and give a little update.
Tuesday, February 26, 2019
So today I felt like talking about what to pack in your babies diaper bag. As you all may know, I have 4 children that range from 8 month old twins to an 11 year old. Needless to say I have been toting a diaper bag for quite some time.
First off you need a diaper bag. I have had quite a few in my 11 years of being a mom, so my advice to you is don't skimp on quality. With my first son I went through 5-7 diaper bags because I bought cheap one that just wouldn't hold up. I'm not saying you need to go out and spend $300 bucks on a diaper bag, but I will say you get what you pay for. First time moms and moms that are planning on having more children should really consider splurging on a nice diaper bag. It will be worth it in the long run when you have only needed that one diaper bag instead of going through multiple diaper bags and wasting money.
By the time I had my second son, I bought a ThirtyOne large zippered utility tote. I loved this bag. They come in so many different patterns/colors that you can find something that you like. They retail for $35. To me that is a steal! It has outside pockets for baby bottles and plenty of space inside for everything your baby needs. With my twins I went with a Skip Hop Duo Double diaper bag. I tend to over pack the diaper bag and I knew with twins that I definitely needed a big bag to hold it all. They retail for $85. If you don't mind a used bag you can always look on your local trade sites or on Ebay. I bought mine for $47 off of Ebay and it was in excellent condition. As soon as it came in I washed it and then started packing it. It fit everything that I needed with a little extra space left over. I ended up switching to a backpack style diaper bag only because it was easier to wear and carry twin infant carriers. With the shoulder style bag, it kept sliding off of my shoulder. A backpack style diaper bag was easier for me to wear and put less strain on my already sore back and shoulders (Carrying twins is no joke!) because it even distributed the weight.
So after doing a little research I went with Ju-Ju-Be. I ended up buying 2 and I have to say I LOVE THEM!!! They are a little on the pricey side but if you watch Zulily, Amazon and even Ju-Ju-Be you can fond them on sale. The two bags that I got were the Ju-Ju-Be Be Nurtured and the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back Legacy. The Be Nurtured bag is essentially a pump bag but I used it as a regular diaper bag. I bought both of mine off of Amazon. Lets just be honest, I buy just about everything from Amazon. For a while each twin had their own diaper bag because they were in different sizes in clothing, diapers and also on different formula so it was just easier for them to have their own bag instead of digging trying to find the right size. Now they share one and are wearing and eating the same thing.
Now onto the actual point of this post! When you pack your little ones diaper bag you need to make sure you have the following:
* Diapers- I pack at least 5-8. Depending on how long I plan to be gone. I figure on 1 diaper per hour that you will be away from home.
* Wipes- I get the wipes in the little throw away containers. They are perfect for the diaper bag and they don't take up as much room as a wipe container box would.
* Bottles- I tend to take about 4-5 bottles per baby for a day out. They say 1 bottle for every 3 hours, but sometimes babies just want to eat a little more so I make sure I have a couple extra just to be on the safe side. I also tend to take one or two extra formula servings in case of mishaps or if needed for a feed.
* Clothing- I always have 3 extra outfits per baby. You never know if your little one will have a blowout or will throw up (yes, this will happen at some point). Don't forget socks!
* Pacifiers- I have 2 extra pacifiers per baby. It seems those little buggers go missing in a heartbeat. And when you have a screaming baby in the middle of a restaurant full of people you are going to want to find one ASAP!
* Blankets- My absolute favorite are the muslin swaddle blankets. They are lightweight and great for swaddling baby, and can be used a spit up rag. I pack 2 per baby.
* Misc- I also pack diaper rash cream, infant Tylenol, gas drops (if baby gets a tummy ache), boogie wipes (for when baby has a messy nose), baby food (if your baby is old enough), spoons, and a few bibs.
This is what I pack in my diaper bag and hopefully this helps give you an idea of what you may or may not need in yours. Leave me a comment and let me know if I have overlooked anything or if you pack something else. Have a great day!

It's that time of the month again. BoxyCharm time!! I want to share with you my February BoxyCharm. If you are not familiar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription where you get 4 to 5 FULL sized products for $21 a month. They have a couple different subscription plans to choose from. The plans are as follows:
* 1 Month - $21
* 3 Months- $59 ($19.66/box)
* 6 Months- $116 ($19.33/box)
*12 Months- $231 ($19.25/box)
** A 12 month subscription is like getting a box for free **
BoxyCharm also offers BoxyLuxe every 3 months- March, June, September and December. There is $250 in value in each box. There are limited quantities of this box. How it works is you sign up for a BoxyCharm, then you are given the option to upgrade to BoxyLuxe for an additional $28.99 every 3 months. The BoxyLuxe will take the place of your BoxyCharm in March, June, September, and December. On all the other months you will receive the regular BoxyCharm. There is an additional $3 charge for shipping outside the contiguous U.S.
Each month after receiving your box you can log into you account and review the products you received to earn charms.These charms can be redeemed for products in the charm room.
Now that I have explained BoxyCharm, lets get into what I got!
This month they offered 11 different products, some with color variations. In my box I received:
- Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
- Pretty Vulgar- Shimmering Swan Highlighter
- touch in SOL- No Poreblem Primer
- Pharmacy-Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser
- Trestique- Prime & GlazeLip Crayon in English Rose
First things first, I love me some Too Faced! This mascara is one of my favorites. It is designed to separate, curl and coat your lashes. No need for an eyelash curler with this mascara. This mascara retails for $24.
Secondly, the Pretty Vulgar Highlighter in Shimmering Swan is such a beautiful champagne color. It goes on smoothly and is not chalky at all. I really like this highlighter. It retails for $32.
Next I received the touch in SOL No Poreblem primer. I have to say I am most excited about this product. it has quickly become my go to face primer. I press this into my cheeks, around my nose and a little on my forehead so my foundation goes on smoothly. It is not greasy, it doesn't ball up on me and an added bonus is it smells really good! This primer retails for $18. At that price, I can get 2 of these for the price of one of the Smashbox Primers and it is just as good, if not better.
This next product is not one that I am excited about. The Farmacy cleanser has an off putting smell to me and to be honest I doubt that I will ever use it. It may be a great product, but the smell makes me not want to test it for myself. I will be passing on this product to a friend or family member. This cleanser retails for $22.
Lastly, is the Trestique Prime and Glaze Lip Crayon in English Rose. I have tried other Trestique products that I have gotten in other boxes and I do like their brand, so I was excited to try this out. It is a 2 in 1 lip duo. One end is a primer and the other is the lip color. I love the color, not a nude but not too bold. It glides on like butter, and sits well on the lips. It retails for the $25.
All in all I am very happy with this box. It has a great value and I'll use 4 out of the 5 products. Leave me a comment below if you receive BoxyCharm and tell me what you got, or if you decided to sign up.
**If you would like to sign up for BoxyCharm I would appreciate it if you used my referral link here. Thank You!**
