Mommy-Con Seattle was so fun! My friend Mindi went with me and we had way too much fun, and spent way too much on a simple lunch at the Marriott hotel.

IMG_0723We had a lot of fun walking through the vendor booths and we learned quite a lot! One of our favorite booths was the Barrier Blankets from Poppiez Love on Etsy. We ended up circling back quite a few times to rub the soft blankets, it was fun!  Babies’R’Us was there and had an epic drawing for a GB Pockit Stroller, Crane Humidifier, and a few other fun things. I was not lucky enough in that drawing but we both got lucky on a few things! The pockit stroller looks great because it folds to 12″x12″ and would be great for traveling.

P*ssy Plug, Clot Goblet, or Period Bucket. Totally funny, but not really kids appropriate in my opinion so I abstained haha, I don’t need more awkward questions but these are totally on my next white elephant list for Christmas!!!

I went halfsies on a muslin blanket set with my friend. It was the SwaddleDesigns Set of 2 Muslin Swaddle Blankets, Hogs and Kisses! I can’t resist hedgehogs ever since I bought my sons first Gymboree outfit 8 year ago that had one on it! I didn’t need two blankets so luckily she wanted the other one!!

We both came away with a good amount of loot, and had a much needed moms day out! It was totally worth it, and I even won an additional Crane humidifier 2 weeks ago from a drawing they did after the event! So now the owl is on the way to me as well. I won the BABYBJORN Bouncer in the last drawing of the night, that was epic! They gave away so much cool stuff! One mom won a breastpump just for cheering randomly! It was great! Other prizes were Orbit car seats, Evenflo Breastpumps (totally want one!!), Chicco booster & nextfit, gift sets, and a bunch more great stuff!

After the giveaways they gave out the extra goodie bags, so that was awesome, they loaded  us up with as much as we could carry! I will probably be giving away a Kiinde set soon 😉

Land of the Wee, Deer Family Collection, Organic Bamboo Baby to Toddler Hooded Towel & Washcloth Gift Set

Amazing, seriously this Organic Bamboo Baby to Toddler Hooded Towel & Washcloth Gift Set is so worth it! The pattern is adorable, the attention to detail is apparent. The box it comes in is perfect for gift giving. I ended up giving it to my son for his birthday so he could have something extra to open at his party. Everyone loved it and it was passed around to be cuddled with because it was so soft! I followed the instructions and washed it before use, and it got even softer! The wash cloth  is huge and it has the fold over like the hood so my son ended up wearing it on his head in the tub. The towel quickly became his favorite and he gets it out every time he takes a bath. My only complaint is that the pattern on the hood is upside down when worn, but honestly that’s trivial and does not take away from the amazing-ness of this set. The towel is huge and perfect for my 2-year-old toddler, and would have also been amazing when he was a newborn because of the softness. I will be buying these as gifts in the future, everyone should have this huge fluffy toddler/baby towel for their little one.

He loves it so much he wore it over his jammies for about an hour!

I received this set at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. No compensation was received for this post.

Greenco Mop and Broom Organizer…Works for Shovels and Rakes!

I am going to start this off by saying make sure you double-check where your studs are if your stud finder has the option to check for metal. My husband’s friend offered to put this up for me and forgot to check for metal and he hit the hot water tanks hot water output, and now I have a hole cut out in my wall and we need to have repairs done!

So since I have a different version of this up already in my laundry room, I decided to have this put up in the garage instead and see if it would work for my husbands shovels and rakes. I am happy to say it holds his shovel and rake line up perfectly! The gravity assisted grips make it an easy one-handed hang up and take down. They do slip slightly but since his handles are mostly contoured it is not a problem, but I can see how that would be annoying if you were using it for a mop or broom. The extra hooks for smaller items is an awesome feature to have, and I am sure he will put them to good use once he’s over the anger of the laundry room disaster!
