FRYday: Santa Barbara

By Emily. Hello! I writing this from Santa Barbara as a guest of our fam at  Zappos! We were one of their top performers this year and so we attended #CJU16 with them! Pretty cool!

Raleigh has been so good but man am I worn out! It’s not easy traveling solo with a baby. It’s also funny how certain cities and airlines people are just … Read more

After two kids I had a really good grasp on what I wanted, didn’t need, and wanted to try out. I chose the UPPAbaby Vista System and am actually obsessed with it. The first thing I knew I wanted to try was a bassinet. Anytime I saw a baby in theirs they always looked so peaceful and comfortable and I loved the idea of having that restful sleep be more of a portable and mobile option, too! I was … Read more

nursing notes

By Emily in partnership with ErgoBaby. I have spent a LOT of time nursing the last couple months and while I sometimes wish for longer arms to wrangle my mischievous older two (who now have realized I am partially immobile and can get away with a lot) I am loving the time I get to spend just Raleigh and me.
