3. Michael Stars elbow sleeve henley : when you need a casual top that’s has a bit of shine to it. Comes in a variety of colors. One size fits all

4. Nom maternity & nursing button down tank : this Springs most popular nursing friendly top comes in seven (SEVEN!!) different colors

5. Halsea tote/diaper bag : what’s the one thing that all diaper bags should have? Pockets.Pockets.Pockets. This tote has TONS! Easy to wipe down, just in case baby decides to spit up on it.

6. Porn For New Moms book : we wouldn’t sell anything that is inappropriate…we promise. This book contains pictures of (clothed) men doing things that we wish all men did: cleaning, changing diapers, doing the dishes, etc. A lady can only dream!

7. Pretty Pushers delivery gown : ditch the gross-same-color-as-the-walls hospital gown that they give you and put on this much cuter delivery gown.

8. Cake maternity/nursing pajamas : still wearing your husbands oversized t-shirts to sleep? Feel cute in a pair of polka dot Cake pajamas with some not-too-short shorts. These are nursing friendly also!


Favorite Web Finds

After reading Iowa Girl Eat’s Friday Favorites blog for so long, I thought we would do our own version of our favorite internet finds. Here are a couple of our favorites this week:

We love the use of the Ikea Expedit shelves in this room. It doubles up as storage and sitting space. Jen from I Heart Organizing gives a great tutorial on how to easily put this together.

IheartOrganizing Expedit

We love having a space for kids to keep their books. These simple shelves are just spice racks nailed into the wall. Affordable, simple, and looks good.


We love how insanely delicious this looks..I mean..just look at it! To top it off, there are only 3 ingredients!

oreo popcorn

We love gender reveal parties. It’s so exciting to get your family and friends involved in finding out what you’re going to have. An added treat with these fun Hershey bars.


We love comfort food made healthy. A big bowl of quinoa mac & cheese is the perfect meal on a cool night.


We love this birthday sign that shows some fun facts of the birthday girl. With some chalk and creativity, this comes together at a great price.


We love the trees, the mountains, the lake, and the blue skies. Every thing about this pictures makes me want to pack up my bags and go straight to Yosemite


We love how insanely adorable this baby picture is. There really are no words…


We hope you enjoyed our Favorite Web Finds. Come back next week for our next round :)
