DIY Messenger Bag

Right before my freshman year in college I was looking for a very specific bag to carry all my school supplies in. I wanted a messenger bag big enough to fit all my books and my laptop with a few pockets and a place to put some pencils for easy access. Unfortunately all the bags I found were too small or too expensive. I figured it was time to put my sewing skills to good use and designed my perfect bag. T Continue reading “DIY Messenger Bag”

Camping Essentials Checklist

Growing up my mom would take my siblings and me camping at least once a year. We had a group of friends and we would head out every summer. Somehow we always had everything we needed for camping, the magic camping fairy would prepare all out clothes, gear and food and we would just pack the car and leave. It wasn’t until I was freezing cold on a mountaintop with my brand new husband that I realized just how much work that camping fairy *cough, cough* mom…. Did before each trip.

Then I decided to list it here because I can’t imagine I’m the only crazy list lady that needs a little To-Do inspiration. A few things will only apply to my situation but they might remind you of something else you’ve inevitably forgotten. Continue reading “41 Things To Do Before Baby”

What To Stock Up On Before Baby

I am a list maker. If I don’t have some sort of list in front of me, I probably won’t get anything done, or I’ll forget half of what I need. So naturally when I got pregnant I started making lists like this one. Lots of people warned me about making this list, because I won’t know how big baby is going to be. But what they don’t understand is that some people, like me, have to have lists. Otherwise I will go completely insane. Besides I can just return what I don’t want right…..

Bare Minimum Baby Needs

I see lots of articles claiming to be what you really need for your baby when he or she comes home. But each one has things I don’t necessarily want or need to have. I talked with lots of other moms and grandmothers to see what I actually NEED to have, and turns out, it’s very simple. Continue reading “Bare Minimum Baby Needs”
