A Reminder on Halloween!

PuppySpot reached out to me and asked me to remind all of you pet parents about the potential risks and dangers that surround Halloween. I thought this was a great idea and so without further ado...

Weekend Recap

Finally checking in today! Been very busy around here lately. Last Friday Sienna and I met my sister in law and her kids for dinner at a fun outdoor restaurant that has a play area for the kids. Sienna watched her cousins run around and she had so much fun! I can't wait until she can get out there with them. Afterwards, we ran to a store to "shop". We didn't buy anything because lets face it, it's not really shopping when you have 3 little kids with you. We were really just trying to tire them out and get them all in bed by 8pm. Success!!!

On Saturday Jon and I opened a bank account for Sienna which we've really been meaning to do so we were glad to get that out of the way. After some more not-so-fun things {laundry} we headed up to my moms house where she hosted a group reading by The Baltimore Medium. We have had sessions with KC for years! Funny story: last year I was newly pregnant with Sienna and only my mom and sister knew. My mom hosted a group reading for her friends and I was not there. KC told my mom that I was pregnant in front of all of her friends not knowing we were trying to keep it a secret. Oops!! And she also told my mom that the baby was a girl. Three months later an ultrasound did indeed confirm that we were having a baby girl!

On Sunday morning we dropped Si off at my grandparents house for her to spend the day. Then we went to Hawk's Hollow Farm where they were having a fall family festival. I brought my Matilda Jane samples. Lots of little girls and mamas stopped by :)

Now we are well into the week with a to-do list that seems never ending! One thing to look forward to: my birthday this Friday and Sienna's first Halloween next week!!! Woohoo

Baby Products You Don't Need

1. NoseFrida $16

The bulb syringe that the hospital gives you worked just fine for us. I don't see why we would need anything else to clear Sienna's nose. I'm still using it. Plus am I the only one that can't get over the thought of sucking the snot out of your kid's nose?

2. Bottle warmer $25

Call me old-fashioned but I just put water in a bowl and heat it in the microwave 1-2 minutes and then submerge the bottle in the bowl for another 2 minutes. I just don't see the need for a bottle warmer that won't save me much time anyways. 

3. Wipe warmer $20

I must be the meanest mama on the planet because my baby girl gets wiped with room temperature wipes! Some people may call it cold but come-on. Your child will survive and thrive without warm wipes, this I promise you.

4. Boppy pillow $40

Breastfeeding didn't go well for us so we only did it for a little while and I used a regular old pillow to prop up underneath us. That regular old pillow did just fine! And I used it often while bottle feeding as well.

5. Dockatot or co-sleeper $175

We tried a co-sleeper and it wasn't our thang. The baby didn't like it and it took up too much space in our bed. She slept in the pack n play which included a bassinet. We have this one! When she was 3 months old we moved her into her crib. Now the pack n play is used for when she sleeps over her grandparents house. So we have gotten much use out of our pack n play!!!

What Makeup Products I Use

I'm not a HUGE makeup person. I have 6 products that I use on a daily basis and they are all drug store purchases except for the mascara. I like to keep things simple and inexpensive. These are tried and true items that are essential for me and I'm glad to share them with you!

Physicians Formula mineral loose powder in natural beige
Covergirl m3 foundation in golden beige
Maybelline 24k nudes eyeshadow pallet
Maybelline lipstick in twinkle #705
Mac brush #190 {to apply the illumination powder}

If I'm going out with friends or maybe on a date with my husband, I'll add some eyeliner and maybe a darker eye shadow. I'll also throw on a little sparkle and lip color! But that's about it. Here's what I use:

The Body Shop brilliance powder {discontinued}
Lipsense in Aussie Rose

What are your go-to products? Please share in the comments!
