Update on our cancer fighting mama friend & Go Fund Me!

Just a little update here on our friend going through Hell and back. She is almost done with Chemo and things are looking up... Counts are finally going in the right direction! After a bad lung infection, an implant removal, and some strong antibiotics we are one step closer  to getting rid of this cruel cancer... I want to thank you all SO SO much for those of you that donated to the Go Fund Me. It is still open and if you would like to donate you are more than welcome as funds are still VERY tight due to her not being allowed to work. People like you helping out make this world a better place!!

OH! And I almost forgot... a few weeks back our friends had a Cancer benefit for one of HER friends... and they raised money at Evolution Tattoo... so of COURSE I had to go in and get a tattoo for my girl. I had her pick out what she thought I should get... and the agreement was brass knuckles with "Fight Like a Girl" in the banner... I love it :) She loves it :)

And We Danced

My husband and some long times friends started a new band/project recently called And We Danced. They have released a couple songs as well as have some shirts available! Their EP is available for preorder right now!
I wanted to take a quick second to give them a shout out. I have always enjoyed Zaq's music - but this is by far my favorite of all the things that he has done. You can find them on facebook here... while you're there you should give them a "like" They would appreciate it :) But before you commit... you're welcome to click play and listen to the first single!!

 They really are an amazing group of guys... coming together from "Past and present members of Cadillac Blindside, The Jealous Sound, The Stereo, Gratitude and Crash/Burn/Repeat." Hearing them for the first time was one of those *ah-ha* moments... and I wanted to shake them for not doing this years ago!! But they are now and that's what matters! Thanks for taking the time to listen and we hope you love it! Tell your friends - and if you REALLY love it - comment letting them know where you want them to book a show near you!

Our favorite new accessory! BUNTING!

omg, omg, omg... I hate to jump on the Bunting Band Wagon - but wow is it ever cute!! Bunting is the perfect accessory for so many things... photo shoot? Bunting. Birthday party? Bunting... nursery & room decor? BUNTING!! I had seen a lot of them on etsy but I was never really impressed with what I saw - and many of you had requested them but I always passed... but recently I got excited to try my own... and man did we step it up!
They are fully finished... meaning not one sided like so many of them are... and not basic cut edges that will slowly fray away... they are DOUBLE SIDED - stitched inside & top stitched for extra durability... and a huge 8 ft. LONG!! They come with your choice of two prints & a minky for extra texture... and backed with a solid color cotton so there are no "ugly" sides... and each 8ft bunting has 12 flags on it.
Want your own? They're listed over at our etsy shop for $38 + shipping.
Get yours here!

Nuby Squid Squirter! As much fun as it sounds.

Looking to spice up bath time? Get your hands on the Nuby Squid Squirter! This toy is sure to make things exciting! Its the first one the kids grab for when they get into the tub...
Why, do you ask? Because it makes the biggest mess... lol It makes me laugh reading the description... because it is totally true. "Nuby's Squid Squirter is a fun way for your child to shoot water all over the bathroom. When you hold the squid under water and pull the handle back the chamber is filled with water. Then push down on the handle and watch the water squirt everywhere. Parents beware, this will be aimed in your direction."SO right on...
They love pulling the curtain closed during bath time and squirting each other. Fun, Fun, Fun... but it can be equally messy... so put a smile on your face, grab a towel, and let them be kids... I will say though - the stream is pretty strong so make sure they're not spraying it too close to each other... I have to imagine it wouldn't feel so awesome in the eye.
 Overall - I am always thrilled with Nuby toys... they're BPA free... easy to clean... and like I said - its the boys' favorite! So another win over here with Nuby. As you can see - our collection of Nuby bath toys is getting pretty large and were super happy with all of them!

3 Stage Feeding Set from Nuby - a must have for all moms!!

Alright - I know Im always bragging up Nuby... but they're genius. Here is why... one bottle/cup... three transitioning options. When you have a baby one of the overwhelming things can be trying to figure out which bottle & or cup they will go for. Zavery was by far my pickiest child. I tried EVERYTHING to get him to nurse - he wouldn't... then we went through about 8 different bottle brands and styles... he finally adjusted to a Tommy Tippie bottle. But wow - I wish I would have had these for him at that time!! Nuby has so many great bottle options from BPA free plastic, to glass, narrow or wide nipples... textured... everything your baby might like... and as they grow and change, the 3 Stage Feeding Set is a MUST in helping with the transition.
In each set you get the 3 tops shown above... and one bottom. All the tops are interchangeable with the same bottom... they grow and change with baby... and if your baby is like Rozz - she might prefer one over the other. Rozz is a BIG fan of stage 3 :) And Mr. Kieran tried one out too! His favorite was stage 2.  Personally - I love them all. They're so easy to clean - no little parts...  just function. 
"Engineered to make feeding and handling easier, for both mother and child, the Easy-Grip 3 Stage Feeding System is perfect for beginners. Your little one will find the transition from bottle to cup an easy one with the cup's soft silicone spout, Sport Sipper straw and the unique contour shape that easily fits their small hands. You will be delighted with the transition thanks to Nûby's leak resistant design."
Another top of the line product from Nuby & a must have for all mama's & babies!

Mr. Kieran trying out his new teething toy from Nuby!

Nuby teething toys we're always a big hit in my house with Rozzlyn... but she is kinda past that age now. So when my we met our new friends Amber & Shannon - we were super excited to try out some Nuby goodies on their son Kieran! This lucky little man got to chomp away at the Teethe-eez. "One end of the “fish shaped” Teethe-eez™ feature teething bristles, just like the above Gum-eez™. The whole teether is made of soft curves and multiple textures that gently massage and stimulate your baby’s gums. The Teethe-eez™ is made of 100% soft medical grade silicone."
And let me tell you - he LOVED it... he kept flipping around from end to end... chewing on it from all sides and angles. He also loved to grind his gums against the nubs on the silicone. It was the PERFECT time to try this one out - as that week he had been having a rough few nights and teething was in full force. You wouldn't know it from this picture! He was a happy, drooly little dude!
I have absolutely ZERO complaints and give this simply awesome teething toy 5 stars! Want to get one for yourself?
