It’s that time again! I’m packing up and heading to Vegas tomorrow for my 5th year at the ABC Kids Expo, the nation’s largest kids and baby trade show.
I’ll be meeting and visiting with many of our favorite brands and companies as well as other bloggers and retailers. It’ll be a busy few days. Coverage on the blog will start next week and run through September, but you can follow on twitter, Instagram and Facebook to catch some of the early news and photos.
Follow our coverage to preview what the year ahead will bring!
Here’s to 238 years of the U.S. of A!
Enjoy this festive day and stay safe!

We managed to take our annual Mother’s Day photo this year without too much fussing or fighting so I’m calling the day a success!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you modern moms, moms-to-be and mothering types. Give yourselves a pat on the back. I hope you’re getting all the appreciation you deserve– today and every day!
I’m merely posting this for your entertainment… at $16,320,000, the Dodo Bassinet Solid Gold from Suommo has got to be the most expensive bassinet of all time. I imagine it being the bed of choice for the offspring of ancient Pharaohs.
Fortunately, the bedding is included. How about throwing in the child’s college education while we’re at it?
For the older baby, the Bela Luxury Cot Gold Edition is merely $62,288 but I’m afraid the bedding is an additional $5,168. For some reason they throw in a free bottle of water.
I’m not even going to mention the pacifier– oh wait, I just did.
Have I sufficiently knocked your socks off?
Congratulations Dh! I will email you shortly. I can’t wait to see photos of it in the nursery!
Thanks to Olli & Lime (one of our lovely friends and advertisers) for this generous giveaway.
This weekend was terribly busy as my family scrambled to get my little one’s big boy room finished before the new year. Here are a few photos of our progress! I’ll show photos of the completed room as soon as we get all the details filled in. I’m still shopping for a bookcase.
Here’s what I’ve been looking at:
From Ikea, the FJÄLKINGE shelf unit has the perfect look and a great price at $130. The problem 46.5″ is too wide for our space.
The Stairway Wall Mounted Bookcase from CB2 is the perfect width at 30″, but the problem with this one is it’s too tall for the room. 96″ won’t work with the 8′ ceilings (96″ = 8′).
I love Room & Board’s quality and I’ve always been a fan of the Slim line, but this shelf is getting a bit pricy at $500. I could pick white or this fun yellow color though…
What to do, what to do….
Hope you’re enjoying a warm and wonderful day with your family! I’m thankful for those of you who have found and enjoy the corner of the internet that I’ve carved out here!
