Mother's Day Giveaway Sponsored by HALO

Pin It
Hello all, I have some exciting news!
A few weeks ago I posted a review here on my blog for a SwaddleSure swaddling pouch by HALO.
(You can check out my full review here).

Today I am excited to introduce you to the HALO SleepSack Swaddle. The SleepSack Swaddle is a great product that keeps your newborn all snug and wrapped with it's unique 3-way swaddle feature, hopefully helping them sleep better and longer!
Here is more about it from HALO:

"Many parents find themselves trying numerous different swaddle products to find that right match for their baby.  The HALO SleepSack Swaddle’s unique 3 way swaddle feature matches baby’s sleep style right from the start– swaddle arms in, arms out or hands-to-face.  As the swaddle adjusts to baby’s sleep style, baby is more likely to sleep well (meaning Mom and Dad can sleep too!).   The HALO SleepSack Swaddle is also the #1 choice by hospitals for safer infant sleep."
With Mother's Day on our minds, I have teamed up with HALO for a little giveaway.
One winner will receive not one, but two HALO SleepSack Swaddles. One to keep for themselves, and one to give to a mama friend in need!
But wait, there's more!

General Conference Review Game

Pin It
* This post is about General Conference. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, (aka Mormons), General Conference is a world-wide conference held twice a year where we listen to talks given by the leaders of our church regarding Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, raising a family, serving others, etc.
It is for anyone and everyone who would like to listen.
You can find the videos of the speakers at

So General Conference wasn't even a week ago and I feel like I have forgotten a majority of the talks and topics already.
That is, the talks I actually got to listen to.
Sitting through 4 sessions of conference with 3 kids at such varying ages means we hear maybe half of what is being said.
We have been able to get our kids to sit and listen to the morning sessions while doing a quiet activity, but even then there is still some talking and distractions going on.
That's kind of how this review game was born.
I realized even if we were getting a chance to watch all of the talks, I myself am not very good at remembering what they were all about.

Today I have a review for you, and my littlest guy gets to make his big blog debut :)
We welcomed him into the world just under 2 weeks ago, so it was about time for him to get to work ;)

This is the Swaddle Sure swaddling pouch from
I actually received this a few weeks before my little guy was born and I couldn't wait to try it out!
I've always liked the idea of swaddling because I feel like it helps keep baby snug and cozy, like when they were still in the womb...also, it's nice to keep their little hands in so they can't scratch themselves on the face...
If I recall correctly, there wasn't really anything like this when I had my other two children, we just used receiving blankets to swaddle them, but they always seemed to get an arm out or wiggle the whole thing loose.
This swaddling pouch is designed to keep that from happening, and that's why I was so excited to try it!

Infant Car Seat Arm Cushion Tutorial

Pin It
It's no secret that I have been patiently waiting for baby #3 to arrive.
I have been getting these crazy strong desires to make something. Anything.
It probably doesn't help that I am not sleeping as well anymore either...I will just lay in bed and my mind will race with all of the things I want to do and how I want them to turn out.
When I had my second son I had seen a picture for one of these 'arm cushions' and I always told myself I was going to make one, especially because my second child was a freaking chunk, and that car seat got heavy!
My poor forearms and the inside crease of my elbows went through quite a lot carrying that little guy around in his car seat.
Unfortunately, I never got around to making the arm cushion.
You would think that would be more of a priority...
Since I've been in the crafty mode I decided to whip one up for baby #3 instead!
Since I was only going off of a picture there was some trial and error in the making process, but I am loving the way this turned out!
I know there are other tutorials for these arm cushions, and you can even buy these already made, but I just wanted to share with you what I came up with, and how I got it done.
I've got step-by-step instructions and pictures for you, so let's check it out.
