Decorating the room of your child is seriously one of the most fun things. I love personalized gifts and goodies for Izzy’s room. If you are looking for the most precious blankets and pillows for decor and bedtime use OMG this shop is so darling!

theGboys has so many fabric colors and patterns you are bound to find one that goes with your child’s nursery or bedroom scheme.

Izzy loves to snuggle with her pillow and blanket for bedtime and night or during the day. The blanket is the perfect size to bundle a baby, toddler or small child.

I also LOVE how the pillow case easily comes off for washing! #momwin

This is the perfect gift for a new or expecting mother or for your child as they transition into toddlerhood and are ready for a pillow to lay on & a blanket to cuddle in at night.

Are you a wine lover like me? Guys I was joking with my Instagram mommy crew.. yes we have an online mom group. Such an amazing support group!  Anyway we were laughing about a meme that said, “If I have a stalker could you please leave wine on my door step.” I was thinking…wine to my door step, that’s what I really need. So here you go moms and dads, or anyone 21+… WINE DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR!

No more need to whine about forgetting to pick up wine at the store.

WINC is super easy to use.

You will either click discover the gifts or get started. When you click get started you will be brought to a survey that asks you various questions about flavor preference. This quiz will then help determine a selected amount of wines you can choose from. This doesn’t limit you though, you can still order from all the wines they offer if you would like to try something that may not have been chosen for you.

WINC wine comes with a card for each bottle. One side tells you about the wine and the other side gives you a dish to pair with it. Guys I made the most delicious meal from one of their cards. Both Isabella and Joe LOVED dinner and of course Joe and I enjoyed the wine.

Traveling with a Toddler

Traveling with a Toddler

I received the mentioned items in this post in exchange for an honest review. As always all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Have you traveled with a toddler yet? I traveled with Izzy when she was 4 months old. I wouldn’t say it was easy, I was still a new mom and  flying with a baby. But I still think that is much easier than flying with a toddler. Toddlers want to get down and walk. They need constant distractions & snacks.

We recently when to visit Izzy’s Great Grampa Ted. She’s 19 months old. Some would say she has even started the terrible twos with tantrums. I thought we were in for frightening flights, but Izzy was amazing! Many people told us how good she was and they had no idea there was a baby on the plane and the man sitting in our row even called her a born traveler. I like to think this was all because I was a well prepared & organized mama!

We had connecting flights because the airport we needed to fly into had a shorter drive from the airport to his hometown. So we really got the full experience guys! From driving with her to flying and running to a connecting flight.

I’m going to share what worked for us on our trip & let you know exactly why you need it. 😉 If you are traveling soon then I suggest you sit back, sip some wine and start clicking and shopping. I have everything linked for you.


My Travel Must Haves List:
Lillebaby carrier
ZoLi food/snack accessories & water bottles
Tablet & Kidloland App
Dock A Tot
Mother Load (organizing bags)
Fawn Design Diaper Bag
Hny Baby Straps
ChooMee toppers and case
Crayola Color Wonder

Why do you need a Lillebaby carrier? Well I have say I have owned a few types and brands of baby wearing gear from carriers to slings and this has been the most comfortable and easiest way to carry Isabella when I need to be hands free. There are times I have needed to use it in the grocery store, while cooking dinner and then of course while traveling. When in the airport you need as many hands as possible! I had a carseat bag on one shoulder, the diaper bag on the other, Izzy on my front and I was rolling a carry on bag. Yes, I looked like a human mule and I needed my arms. At one point we had to run so we didn’t miss our connecting flight and I tell you what the Lillebaby really came in hand then.

I chose the toddler Complete Airflow Charcoal with Berry. The complete airflow was great for the airport because you always get hot running around and moving from one side of the airport to the other to catch a plane.

Why do you need Zoli products? These water bottles I chose were perfect for travel because of their size. I was able to fit Izzy’s & my water bottle in the diaper bag pockets easy peasy! The snack container was perfect because I could fit all of her crunchy snacks inside and they don’t get smushed during travel. Zoli also makes awesome silverware and bowls that are perfect for on the go.

Why do I need a Fawn Design diaper bag? Beyond the fact that this bag is absolutely gorgeous, you need it because the comfort, size and design. This company created a bag that is perfect for travel. You can wear it on your back or on your shoulder. I also think that this bag was made perfectly for the Mother load organizers and Zoli water bottles.



Why do you need ChooMee travel packs? We have always loved these products but the travel case is a must I could easily find the covers and store them back into a case after using. The covers keep pouch contents from being squeezed everywhere and the it’s soft so Izzy can chew on it as well. Izzy enjoyed her travel snacks for sure!

Why do you need Motherload Bags? These bags are ideal for organizing a diaper bag or travel bags. I had Izzy’s snacks in one, toys in another, a change of clothes and had the dirty clothes bag folded inside. I also used some to keep items together when packing. Like all of her little socks and headbands were stored neatly and didn’t get lost.



Why do you need a tablet with the Kidloland app? Distractions when traveling.. that’s key! How about educational distractions, um yes please! Kidloland is an awesome app. It’s more like an app with a million apps inside. Okay I’m exaggerating it’s actually an app full of 800+ nursery rhymes, songs, stories, activities and games. We have still yet to play all the games, listen to all the stories or engage in everything it has to offer. Isabella likes the stories. You can chose to have them read to you or for it to allow you to read. There are songs and games as well. Izzy loved the songs about shapes and colors and of course wanted to watch the song about her favorite shape, the star on repeat! Thumbs up from this educator on this app!

Why do you need a Dock A Tot? You all may or may not have seen my post on why we started using the Dock A Tot. Read more here. This is a travel must have because it creates a cozy space for your child so weather they are sleeping in the bed with you or in a pack n play you can be certain they will feel more at home. Also I think it’s important to have a spare cover with you at all times. You never know when you need to change your babes cover from drinks, to vomit to umm I’ll let you guess the rest.

You are probably thinking, drinks in bed? No, but that brings me to another point. The Dock A Tot is also the perfect lounger when hanging in the hotel room.

Izzy slept hard in the hotel with her Dock A Tot. Looks cozy doesn’t she?

Why do you need  HNY BABY products? Things can get dropped or fall when rushing around an airport. The toy along and sippy strap are must haves. When out to eat I attach Izzy’s cup to the highchair with the sippy strap. If you are taking a stroller you can hook it to that. The toy along is great for attaching a toy to your baby carrier or stroller because the last thing you need is a lost “favorite” stuffed animal while traveling.

Why do you need Crayola Color Wonder & books? Two more fun activities for the airport or plane with NO MESS! I repeat, no mess! The markers with the color wonder only mark color on the special paper they come with. It’s pretty amazing… you’re welcome! 😉

I hope my travel must haves list helped you out and you feel more prepared for the trip you will be taking with your littles. Safe travels! I know you littles are going to enjoy the journey to their destination & what they have waiting for them when they get there.

Izzy sure loved meeting her Great Grampa & he loved meeting her too!
