Cybex Balios Stroller

This post was sponsored by CYBEX as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received the CYBEX Balios Stroller and Aton Q Infant Car Seat to facilitate my review. Baby Brando is now 2 weeks old today. I would be lying if I said this that the time is flying by. James and I have been running on about 4 nonconsecutive hours of sleep a night and it’s been rough to get out and about or be motivated to get […]

Packing for the Hospital

What to pack for the hospital

Last time I had a baby I had NO IDEA (aside from recommendations on the internet) of what to pack or expect for the stay at the hospital. Going into this delivery with the knowledge of what I can expect, how long I am staying, and how I’m going to feel is making preparing for this 3-4 day stay much easier. While I don’t EXACTLY know if I’ll be in the hospital from Mon-Wed or Mon-Thurs, at least I have […]

Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay…

You ever have those moments where you’re just like “this is my life”? Maybe that’s too vague, it’s hard to describe the feeling I mean, but if you’ve experienced it, you know what I’m talking about. I remember being in middle school, having an awkward fashion sense in high school, and picking out my classes for my first semester in college. That feels like just yesterday. Even as I waited tables during the countless semesters at community college while I was […]

Hip Mom Hair – in 5 Minutes!

I’ll be the first to admit I’m TERRIBLE at doing my hair. I wash and condition it every other day as recommended, but when it comes to day-to-day hairstyles, I typically just have air-dried hair with my bangs bobby-pinned to one side, and I have super thin hair, so honestly most of the time it isn’t even brushed. I say I’m going for that “messy look”, but in actuality a lot of the times it just comes off as messy […]

Parenting is…a walk in the Park

Or at least it was today. It’s Cashs 11 month old birthday so we had a very special day. He got to watch The Magic School bus and have eggs for breakfast, then after his afternoon nap we strolled down to the local park and he made some new friends, played on the swings, drove a racecar, and smiled a ton. After the park I took him to a local bakery and got him gelato with sprinkles to celebrate his […]

Cash Tillman Thursday #7

We have been having such a good time getting settled into the new place. This is OUR home, The Clark Cottage, and Cash has had no problems adjusting. The new house has carpet, not hardwood floors, so Cash has been SO much more active! We’ve been going outside and walking basically every single day since moving, finding cool local shoppes to visit, enjoying the outdoors and the sea breeze that remains in the air in St.Pete. This is a great […]

Soaking up the sun and enjoying the warmth in Florida as everyone else in the country is in Fall right now. Cash and I took and Mommy and Me trip to the pool and had a wonderful time in the water! Over the weekend baby boy enjoyed his first BBQ from a great local spot, Kojacks House of Ribs. He loved eating ribs and baked beans and even homemade applesauce from this awesome place! James and I were able to […]

Cash Tillman Thursday #6

Next week Cash will be 10 months old! Only 2 months til my precious baby boy is an whole year old! I know I’m going to sound like my mom when I say it seems like only yesterday I was holding him for the first time, but it’s the truth. His features are changing so much recently. His smile is growing bigger and brighter everyday, literally, his top 2 front teeth have officially broke the surface of his gums and […]

Cash Tillman Thursday #5 – In Georgia!

This week we went out of state! So spur-of-the-moment, but so exciting! I can tell Cash misses Daddy a ton though, we FaceTimed him last night and he was super sleepy, but kept trying to touch the screen and hug daddy. It was the sweetest most adorable sad thing in the world. In other news, Cash has been crawling everywhere and anywhere, he’s also pulling himself up to stand, and every morning when I get him out of bed he’s […]
