Stella & Dot Personalized

I have always loved Stella & Dot jewelry, but I am SUPER excited to share with you the new line of personalized jewelry they now have available!  I worked with a friend of mine and a Stella & Dot stylist Mo Tuttle to start the perfect "mom necklace."  It has the initial of each one of my cute kids and I plan on adding a couple charms too- not sure which ones yet, but I am thinking a birthstone for each kid along with a cute charm that symbolizes something.

Comfortable Mom Shoes

I have reviewed a pair of Sanuk shoes before on the blog, but I have to say that these yoga sling sandals are definitely my new favorite!

The Diaper Dude for Dad

So I don't know about all of the husbands out there, but my husband REALLY doesn't like to carry my girlie diaper bags and purses being used as diaper bags.  Just the other day I asked him to take it because I had my hands full and he refused!  He said he would go take it to the car instead!  I didn't think it was that big of a deal, but apparently it is to him.  So, I jumped at the chance to review the Diaper Dude.

A diaper bag that dad won't shy away from! Specially designed for hip dads (and moms!), this cool sack has sporty messenger styling and lots of handy features for on-the-go parents.

 I love that this bag has LOTS of pockets on the outside because my husband is ALWAYS getting so frustrated when he tries to find something on the inside of my bags.  It has lots of compartments on the inside too- which makes finding things much easier for him.  

This would be a great Father's Day present for the expecting daddy :)  Go check them out along with lots of other Father's Day gifts at ElmBaby.com

5 Ways to Save Money on Travel

 In case you haven't seen my post on Flying With Children: Tips and Tricks go check it out.

1. Budget.

First decide how much you can afford for a trip, then after booking hotels, flights, rental cars or figuring out how much gas will cost you, budget the leftover money for what you will do, where you will eat, and what you will buy in your trip (specific restaurants, souvenirs, attractions, etc)  These little things can add up a LOT and especially when you are in "vacation mode."
