• 6 Great Gift Ideas for the Bride

    Have a friend, a sister, or a daughter who is getting married and want to give her a gift, just for her, that is unique, personal, and that she’s sure to love?  Here are 6 great gifts for the bride that are just bridey enough to be fitting, but not generic or tacky. 6 great gift ideas for the bride

    1.  What bride wouldn’t love a sketch or watercolor of her wedding gown?  Why not send her one of these paintings from Diane Bronstein after her wedding has come and gone? / 2. Want to give the bride a special token to carry with her on her wedding day?  These bouquet text charms from Paloma’s Nest are a great gift idea. / 3. I wore this Hanky Panky “I DO” thong on my wedding day and have given them to several of my girlfriends.  They also come in hipster briefs. / 4. Give her a special tote to carry around all of her wedding-day notes, schedules, and details – and then she can use it as a work or beach bag after and remember her “Best Day Ever.” / 5. Whether the bride is doing her own makeup for her wedding or just needs a pretty palette for touch-ups and pre-wedding events, Jouer’s Blushing Beauty Collection is perfect. / 6. Every bride needs a pretty robe to wear while she gets her hair and makeup done the morning of her wedding, and later for her honeymoon.  Every time she wears it she’ll remember the happiest day of her life.  I love this one from Doie Lounge.

    •  We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!

       39 weeks today and you've now been growing outside of my body as long as you were growing inside. And growing, and growing, and growing... ☺️❤️ #quincysweekbyweek #39weeks  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy
