Olivia is loving being a big sister- almost too often at times. Any of you with two kids probably know that they often want to help out which is amazing but sometimes their help isn’t very helpful at all. But one thing that I love having help with from big sister is diaper changing. No I don’t make her change diapers- yet- hehe but she helps me change diapers by getting me a new diaper for Ryan and grabbing the wipes.
What cracks me up is while changing a poopy diaper she always goes yuck, ewhh- it totally cracks me up every time. I always reminder her that her poopy diapers are yuck too. She always sticks it out though and will still help me out which I appreciate.
Now having two kids in diapers can sure add up at times but what helps to lower those costs is shopping at Family Dollar and using the Family Dollar Smart Coupon for $2 off Huggies. Family Dollar even carries Huggies Snug & Dry which comes with new FOUR layers for reliable, long-lasting protection for up to 12 hours. What else helps to cut some costs is the Huggies one & done refreshing wipes. They are designed for only one wipe to come out at a time & they are also thicker.
We all know those wipes come in handy for more things than just wiping our babies cute little bums. I am always pulling out wipes to clean Olivia after getting sticky or dirty. She is such a girlie girl in not wanting her hands to be dirty, so being able to wipe her completely down with just one wipe is saving me money or should I say is adding towards the cute baby clothes fund.
Now what I like about the Family Dollar Smart Coupon is it’s so easy to use. I will go through and pick coupons I want to use either ahead of time or while in the store- once I’ve clipped them into my account by just clicking the add button- they are all together- every coupon I have clipped. Once at check out you will just enter your phone number that you used with your account and it will automatically work at the register. No more searching your purse for coupons and holding up the line at the register.
So if you are a Huggies fan and want to pick up a $2 off coupon click here. Family Dollar has a Family Dollar Smart Coupon that can save you all year long and they have the products for the everyday low price as well. Click here to find the nearest Family Dollar Store near you.
Who hates putting furniture together? Most people do right, it is very frustrating & time consuming.
I am kind of weird and I often find it enjoyable but the last few pieces I had to put together I was really frustrated with and my hands were killing me afterwards. Thats why I was thrilled when I heard about this local small business “A Perfect Playhouse” that makes the cutest rocking benches and playhouses that requires NO screws & tools. Everything interlocks together.
When my rocking chair arrived it came in 5 pieces total. It took me a total of 1 minute-maybe 2 tops to put together. Which honestly was a good thing because once Olivia realized what it was she wasn’t being patient with me. She literally clapped with joy when I finished and sat in it instantly.
I find her often lining her stuffed animals on this bench or reading books. It has honestly been a great addition to our home. My mom noticed it instantly when coming over to visit and commented how beautiful it was.
If you like to support small businesses and you hate to assemble furniture than A Perfect Playhouse is perfect for you.

Hey I have mentioned before that I am obsessed with monthly subscriptions and so here is another one. Mom’n’Tot Box
There is just something about always getting happy mail and it being amazing that makes it that much more fun. I think Olivia must agree because her face is priceless when opening up her box this month.
What is fun about this box “which the name says it all” It has something in there for your baby or toddler as well as for yourself. We all like to get presents at times.
This month we got a wooden toy camera, non toxic crayons made from beeswax, a first aid kit that fits into the diaper bag, nail polish for me, and little shorts for Olivia.
That is a lot of things in 1 box.
You can tell by her facial expressions she was thrilled.
Her favorite things are obviously the crayons and the wooden toy camera. She thought it was so funny to see me hold it up and look through the hole. I kept showing her that she now has a camera just like mommy does. My favorite items are her new cute blue and white polka dot shorts (perfect for summer), the first aid kit (I am one of those over prepared people so this was perfect to have it all in a hardshell case, and of course my nail polish. It was a gorgeous light purple- also perfect for summertime nails.
Olivia loved the items so much that she insisted on bringing them outside with us to color. She was also caught chewing on them which made me feel at ease knowing they are safe for her.

I have a passion for reading. Growing up I loved coming home, grabbing a great book, cuddled up on the couch and seeing my dad on the other couch doing the same. I also loved discussing the books we were reading. I wanted this love for reading so bad for my daughter so I was thrilled when I would catch her playing quietly in her room flipping through a book. She will bring me books, sit on my lap and point at things while turning the pages.
Something else that I also love are subscriptions. Seriously, I was signed up for a monthly 3- bow headband subscription, weekly meals from Blue Apron, toys subscription, diapers, magazines, you name it.
So when I found a monthly subscription of books for my daughter I was thrilled.
I can honestly say that one of our favorite books has come from the Bookroo monthly subscription too.
The Biggest Kiss by Joanna Walsh & Judi Abbot she thinks it is so funny to give me kisses throughout the book. What more could I ask for.
Olivia has so many books but I had never heard of this one. It is her favorite book and mine as well. She will honestly give me kisses throughout the whole book and I have noticed that she will continue giving me more kisses throughout the day.
One of my favorite quotes is “I do believe something magical can happen when you read a book” J. K. Rowling
I love seeing that Olivia sees the magic in books already and I hope to continue that love. Having a monthly subscription from Bookroo will help to continue her love for reading.

My husband and I have been in our home for almost 4 years. It is an older home & we love it for it’s character & charm. It needs a lot of updating so we have been getting bids therefore so many people have come into our home & even asked us if we just moved in. We always thought that we would get to the remodel sooner so we had avoided decorating, buying new furniture, & being actual adults, just living with our mix matched things. It’s embarrassing explaining to people that nope we have been here for quite a while but have been living like 19 year old college students.
Anyways one thing that needed major updating was our bedding. I’m almost embarrassed to say this but I know my bedding followed me from pre-college days. It was old, outdated, and wasn’t very comfortable. The white sheets were looking grey and yellow. I thought that one of the first things we needed to invest in was some adult bedding. I have always been curious about this trend of bamboo clothing, beddings, just anything bamboo. (We have even been looking into bamboo flooring).
Honestly I can now say I know why everyone is talking about it. The first day I took the sheets out & washed them I couldn’t believe the difference in feel once pulled out of the dryer. They were so soft. I even made my mom come in and feel how soft they were when she came to visit. I’ve also noticed that I seem to sleep more comfortable with them. You know how sometimes you can get too hot or too cold during the night, I seem to keep a good neutral temperature while using these sheets.
I use to travel a ton (pre-baby) & I felt like I was sleeping in an expensive hotels bed. You know the feeling, soft, fluffy, & you don’t want to leave.
If your shopping around for new bedding I highly recommend going the eco-friendly route & getting bamboo sheets & better yet check out Cariloha sheets. You, your partner, & your pets wont regret it.
