This post is sponsored by Picture Keeper but all thoughts and reviews are genuine and my own. This post is not encouraging the indulgence of alcoholic beverages but if you choose to drink here’s a reminder the legal drinking age is 21 and to always drink responsibly and never drink and drive or get in the car with someone under the influence. 

Saint Patrick’s Day is the BIGGEST holiday every year for us Savannians and we welcome you with open arms but be ready for the craziest, drunkest, loudest, most crowded experience of your life! The first parade was held in the 1800s so we have had quite a...

Anyone else absolutley dying with how hot it is this summer?! Max and I have pretty much gotten to the point that we either stay inside or in the pool - and that's about it! It's just too hot to do anything else and the beach is just a tad too far.

When planning our next blog post, I told Brittany I had found this float for the boys and she said "Kate! Write a post about it!" Sometimes I forget that even the littlest of things can probably be just as helpful for you guys as they are for us! So, if there is anything you guys want to know about please leave it in the comments! In the near future...

Max and I recently took a 2 hour flight to Washington, D.C. to visit my great grandmother and Max's great-great grandmother. When first scheduling our trip I looked at flight times and how they would correlate to Max's nap schedule.

After you book your ticket the next step is to call the airline and A.inform them you are traveling with an infant and B.see what baby gear you can check and if there is...

When I first found out I was pregnant all I could think about was my babes nursery and what his/her crib would look like; the skirt, matching bumper, and even bows...I was in denial about having a boy! I thought so much about his nursery and how cute he would look in his crib only to be told babies don't even sleep in their nurseries until they are like 6 months old! On to plan B! I bought a fancy, vibrating bassinet that plays music and does all these other fancy things but the truth is, even that was hard to get Max out of in the middle of the night when he was hungry. I also felt so far awa...

If you are a germ freak like I am, the thought of putting my fragile little baby in a shopping cart absolutely terrifies me! I honestly can't say how many seat covers I put in and took out of my registry trying to find the perfect one. That's when I stumbled across the BinxyBaby! When I first got it I had no idea just how much Max would come to love it and how much I would need it in my day-to-day shopping trips! The BinxyBaby is essentially a hammock that attaches to the grocery cart that you can either lay baby in or set their infant carseat (up to 50 pounds) in. They come especially in hand...
