To help ease some of the adventure into the world of pregnancy brain, here is a list of some basic maternity wardrobe must-haves, all made in the USA.

Whenever I dropped my son off at his old school, I'd see another mother with a wardrobe problem. She'd often be dressed in pajama pants, over-sized t-shirts and flip-flops.
I used to see this mother and sigh. What message does this mother send to her children with the way she dresses in public?…

This weekend, I finally tackled something that I've been needing to do for a long time - I finally cleaned out my closet.
I've had some half hearted attempts in the past year, where I pack away some things that are out of date or torn, but I never truly sat down and thought about what I actually use. My closet was still filled with tiny clubbing dresses (ermigad, the shame), old corporate clothes (that I have not worn in over a decade) and things that were not age appropriate…Continue

Children’s clothing can be rather expensive especially if you are shopping in boutiques or buying brand name clothing. I wanted to share with you some tips and suggestions so that you can learn how to save money on your children’s clothing. If you are currently pregnant, I highly suggest that you read this post and don’t go too crazy buying to many outfits for your child. They will grow out of them rather quickly and every few weeks it will seem like you are swapping out…Continue

A few weeks ago, I noticed that our dryer was taking a long time to get our clothes dry. I decided to get my older children to help me do some investigating and try to find the source of the problem. I had a feeling that there was some lint trapped in the dryer hose but after investigating a little bit we discovered…Continue

Nobody would argue that people are busier than ever these days. Between work, spouse, children, home and other commitments, there is more and more competition for our time. And those companies that manufacture goods understand this and cater to the demands of convenience and ease. But at what cost?

We had the most beautiful Spring day in Pittsburgh on Saturday… Sunshine & Blue Skies!
There was still a chill in the air; a perfect day to throw on a scarf! I pulled out my white jeans and wore them for all but a couple of hours before my 3 little boys reminded…Continue

Everyone has their ‘thing’ that motivates them to lose baby weight, get healthy and tone their body. For me, after 9 months of pregnancy, there’s nothing like a NEW OUTFIT in my PRE-PREGNANCY SIZE that motivates me to get my body back!
Some can/will put a time frame on when they want/need to fit…Continue

I got dressed! Like, not yoga pants, a sweatshirt and pony-tail dressed, but really dressed. You know, in real clothes? Having an infant around the house can make any mom compromise her style but I want to show you one of my favorite post-partum ‘looks’ and give you a few tips too…
For me, a comfortable skirt is…Continue

During my weekly pre-natal appointment, I couldn’t help but think about what a shame it is that this practice met me at this point of my pregnancy. I’m definitely not myself. I’m at the end of this roller-coaster ride. Ready for it to be over. Ready to get off and not ride again until I eat an ice-cream cone, take a bathroom break, lounge around,…Continue

FEBRUARY IS OFFICIALLY HERE!!!
Let’s shout it from the rooftop! I made it to February! Only 3 weeks, 3 sleeps to go! Or 24 days! What sounds better? I can’t decide if saying the number 3 vs. 24 or saying the word weeks vs. days sounds better. Either way; I…Continue

As of today, I have 4 weeks, 3 sleeps left in this pregnancy; yippee!!! Unless however, baby decides to make an appearance earlier (which I would be totally fine with). A lot has changed for me this week. Baby dropped and moved off of my sciatic nerve (yay!) and into pressure zone (boo!…Continue

When I was pregnant with my son, I had trouble finding cute maternity clothes. Most of the stores that I went to only had a very small section of maternity clothes. In fact, most stores don’t carry any plus sized maternity clothes unless you go to a specialty maternity store. Plus sized mom’s shouldn’t have to settle for clothes that aren’t comfortable or don’t fit her growing belly. I wanted to help mom’s find cute plus sized maternity clothes without going from store to store and…Continue
