There’s nothing quite as special for new parents as planning thenursery décor for their new arrival. It’s fun picking out colors and choosing a theme to enchant and soothe baby, but the experience can be a bit overwhelming - especially for first-time parents.
Before you head out to begin shopping for your baby’s…Continue

The quick answer - NO!
Now for the long answer:
How important are eco friendly and or organic items to you?
The more that I learn about what goes into our food, clothing, household items etc, the more I lean towards finding the organic version. Ever since having kids this issue has become more and more important to me. I was not raised in an Eco-Frienldy environment - but then again, I really don't think it was as much of an issue as it is today.

Having had a strange obsession with finding the best possible diaper bag and having purchased way too many, I finally have figured the "essential features" needed to make the perfect diaper bag.
P.S. Now I am headed to e-bay to sell the 100 bags that I have bought in the past to recoup some of my hard earned money! LOL!
1. Size: You will need to carry diapers, wipes, snacks, ointment, burp clothes, and other…Continue

Bamboo fabric has a natural sheen and softness that feels and drapes like silk but is less expensive and more durable.
Bamboo clothing is easy to launder in a clothes washer and dryer.
Because of the smooth and round structure of its fibers, bamboo clothing is soft and non-irritating, even to sensitive skin. Some people with chemical sensitivities can not tolerate bamboo…Continue

Good Morning All!
Trying to get better at "blogging" here but with all of the other stuff of being a business owner and mommy, life gets really busy!
I have been posting on Facebook and Twitter information about "Organics" and/or Eco-Friendly stuff. I try to focus as much as possible on keeping an "organic" house. And that does mean different things to different people. It seems to be a rather "hot and/or trendy" topic now a days and the more I learn about it, the more…Continue

Good Morning! So it has been a little while since my last post, lets see, 5 year old with a broken leg, and a 2 year old with a fever and horrible cough...It is amazing how quickly the days go by.
Anyway, just a quick note, as some of you might know, I have taken a step into the entrepreneurial world and have started 3 websites, the first one www.HarperGraceBaby.com And it has been so much fun I have to say and a real learning experience…Continue

Are you raising a future Cowboy? I am raising 2 of them....and boy are they adorable! Along with tons of energy.
When I was designing the "nursery" for both of my boys it was so much fun! I took it very seriously and loved every minute of it. Looking back on it though - I would probably do it a little differently today - (maybe their will be another chance....) but I went so babyish with the bedding etc and don't get me wrong, I love the real babyish stuff -…Continue

Good Morning Moms! I am back from a great Disney Vacation with my boys and boy did we come home exhausted! Just wanted to sleep for days, I find Disney so exciting that I cannot control myself!
Anyway, I thought that I would share this post that I wrote about 6 months ago. It has nothing to do with my business, www.HarperGraceBaby.com but everything to do with I think the way a lot of us feel now a days. I would love if you read it and…Continue
So, the Holidays are over and I am happy about it point blank!
Toys are put away and we have weeded out the things that look cool and I want it for Christmas but I am not going to play with it much toys. (I try to minimize those purchases but the advertising for them is AWESOME.)
I have to say that 1/4 of the toys that were bought for Christmas have already broke, some right out of the box - now I know that I have 2 boys and that may have something to do with it, but lets face…Continue

Good Morning! Happy New Year and Back to Reality!
Well, I am sort of looking forward to getting back on track and on a routine, but also going to miss the relaxed non rushed days.....
Thankfully we are headed to Disney in a couple of weeks. I have an extra vacation week that I never took and decided to take my mom and kids to Disney for a fun vacation. The hubby who is not as Disney crazed as I am will man the fort. The funny thing is, I thought I was not going to miss him,…Continue
Now as you all have been finding out, I love Diaper Bags and have way too many. Before kids it was a purse obsession, now with kids, they are 2 and 5 but I still need a bag big enough to carry everyones stuff, even my Husbands when we are out an about. Including work stuff. So I am always on the search for a 3 in 1 bag, Diaper, Purse and Brief case all in one.
Just like day planners in the day only catering to men in the work force (now their are prettier designs available) Diaper…Continue

So I know that I am always blogging about this, it is just something that I really believe in. I eat organic too for the most part anyway. It is always good to know what you are putting in or on your body, not to mention your baby's skin is even more important.
I live in the North East and it gets windy and COLD! YUCK! And my skin peels and my kids lips get chapped and little checks get red and BAM! As soon as I clean and moisturize their skin, it calms right down.
