Vera Bradley Baby Bag

A good diaper bag is essential to hold the countless things a mom totes around the first years of a child's life. In the past I have went through numerous diaper bags due to many spills, rips, or the bag is just not big enough to hold everything. After much surfing on the web, I have finally found a diaper bag that will suit me, the Vera Bradley Baby Bag. The baby bag has specialized clips and pockets for holding everything from binkies to bottles to diapers. The baby bag is also lined for easy cleaning and even includes a changing pad. Needless to say, I splurged after a stressful week and treated myself to Vera Bradley's Boysenberry Baby Bag!

Cricut Name Banners

My brother gave me a Cricut for Christmas (pretty awesome, right?). Unfortunately, I have been so busy the last three months and have not had the chance to start a project. I had a little free time over the weekend and decided to create name banners for Madison and Grayson on my Cricut. I was planning on doing the normal painted wooden letters above the crib and toddler bed. However, recently there has been a trend on baby blogs and Etsy shops to hang decorative name banners above cribs and toddler beds. Below is my attempt at baby name banners. I am excited to start more projects on my awesome Cricut!

Grayson's Safari Room Decals

This weekend I felt the need to do a little spring cleaning (aka the nesting process has begun). I got a lot accomplished in baby Gray's room and even hung a few of his safari decals - enjoy the photos!

Who ever said that baby boy clothes could not be cute too?

I enjoyed going shopping at the Carter's Outlet store yesterday afternoon. The Carter's Outlet store has the cutest baby clothes with the best sales and coupons. Plus, Carter's Outlet just started an incentive card program that helps every little bit. I defiantly recommend checking out their infant, toddler, and children clothing deals!

Playground Days

Mady & I have been cooped up in the house most of the week, so we decided to go down the street to Mason Ridge Elementary's playground. Mady loved playing outside in the warm afternoon weather!

I created a baby name poll on BabyCenter, a popular pregnancy and baby website. The baby name poll was posted for a day and a half online and the final results are posted below! The member comment section is defiantly my favorite (especially number three).

80%Grayson Dean 
20%Remington Cole 
(Total votes: 154)
Which girl name do you prefer?
28%Dakota Addison 
4%Remington Sage 
68%Olivia Jade 
(Total votes: 160)

9. Remington reminds me of guns or shaving stuff for some reason.

8. Addison is becoming more and more popular for a girls name, its one of my picks for our daughter too.

7. My daughters name is Olivia Grace. Remington just reminds me of ammunition.

6. Dakota, Remington, Sage, & Addison are overly male.
Especially Addison, which one poster pointed out, literally means "son of Adam"!

5. Remy! for a boy only, though. Olivia is cute for a girl.

4. I know a little baby boy name Remington and they call him Remy. I think it's very cute for a boy, not feeling it as a girl name though. Dakota for a girl and Remington for a boy :)

3. Remington is very butch, manly, redneck. I would NEVER give my daughter such a masculine name.
For boys I voted Grayson Dean
For girls I voted Olivia Jade

2. I think Dakota Sage would be an amazing name. Olivia & Grayson are great names, but pretty mainstream compared to your other choices--I like your more unique choices.

1. I like Dakota the best of the girl names but not with Addison because it's a double unisex, so it's impossible to tell if Dakota Addison is a boy or a girl. I'd go with Dakota Jade.
