What are you wearing this Holiday?

I don't know about y'all but being a plus size girl and a month postpartum. I was struggling to find something to wear for Christmas. I knew I needed something plus size and loose in the tummy. I also knew I wanted something festive or at least bright and not part of my maternity wardrobe.





I decided to browse Lane Bryant and see what I found. Well I found a gorgeously simple yet festive dress. It was just my style. I also found the perfect accessories to go with it. I won't post a picture just yet because it's not yet Christmas. Just know it is rather fabulous.





Best of all...right now they have their semi-annual sale going on. If you have never tried before, now is the time to try their bras for any fuller figured woman. They sell my absolute favorite and most effective bras. I always buy them during the semi-annual sale or any other good sale they have on them.


If you are still looking for a gift for a friend or family member that is a definite size sexy, like myself, a Lane Bryant gift card is an awesome gift. They can get items to go to work, to go out on the town, or even just to lounge about. I'm sure they will love the gift. Every time they wear the item they were afforded to purchase through your generosity, they will think happy thoughts of you.

Happy Holidays

Family Time During the Holidays

 Hey Y'all

It is winter break around here. That means I have a 6 year old, 2 year old, and newborn underfoot most of the day. I'm always trying to come up with fun ways to hang out with the kiddos. This year I've decided we will do a variety of activities.

family time during the holidaysI think making and drinking cocoa is always a fun activity. I found a variety of super simple and customizable recipes here

You can also do family movie night. There are some great movies out there for kids of all ages. Here is a list of the top 15.

You can even do a family game night. Here is a brief list of some you and your littles may enjoy playing.

We actually like to do all three with some other activities mixed in. We like to include cookie making, gingerbread house decorating, going to see Christmas lights, and of course ornament/decoration making.

I think if you include the things here you will definitely keep the littles busy as well as have a ball this holiday season. Click the "here"s to get the most ideas.

Happy Holidays

Sleep Sound with the Sound of White Noise

Hey y'all,

So has anyone else ever been shamed by a really cool electronic device?...  No. Just me. Oh okay then. 

So now to the actual story...
Sleep Sound Giveaway 
I received this super cool little speaker doodad, at least that's all I knew of it at first. Once I looked further into it, you know and read the information about it, I realized it was a sound machine. More accurately, it was a white noise machine. I figured the white noise would help the babies sleep more sound and relax the fight against sleep.

Well I decided I was going to test it. Now here is where the shame came in. I could not for the life of me figure out how to turn it on even after charging it. Well Z showed me it was definitely user area. In under 30 seconds, he had turned it on and figured out how to make it make different sounds. So me being the person I am played with it until I figured out it was just the push of a button or two BUT clearly after he was asleep. I shan't be shamed in front of the children. After that first night of me figuring it out, he took it to bed with him every night to go along with his night light. The combination seemed to soothe him into an easy and peaceful sleep. I love it and he loved it as well. For us, it became a total keeper and nighttime routine.

What the Manufacturer's Say About It...
