Boutique Wipes Cases by Maia Bella Boutique {Giveaway}

Whether you prefer to care for your wee one's bottom with disposable baby wipes or eco-friendly reuseable cloths, these boutique-style wipes cases by Joy Sierra of Maia Bella Boutique will bring a sense of style to the messy task of diaper duty! Available in both full-size and travel versions, Joy offers a wide range of fabric patterns to fit every taste.

I was given the distinct privilege of trying out the travel version of the "Kleo" pattern (top left in the above graphic) and, given the hectic schedule in our hosehold over the course of the past month, I have definitely put it to the test! This baby has been in and out of my various diaper bags more times than I can count, tossed about this way and that, and used over and over to clean many a messy tushy. The high quality fabric and stylish trim are securely attached and show no signs of gapping, fraying, or puckering despite the abuse I have put them through. There is even a layer of padding/bunting between the top of the case and the fabric to give a beautifully finished look. Who says the mundane has to look mundane?!

Win Your Own:

Feeling Blue

Thank you to all of my followers for not jumping ship during my recent absence. I appreciate your patience and continued patronage and plan to return to my normal posting regimen next week.
To offer a brief explanation, I have been MIA recently because my Papa (grandfather), to whom I was very close, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 17th. Services were this week and it has been a difficult and very emotional road. He suffered a massive stroke during a routine procedure on April 14th, and we have had a house full of family until now. He was a kind, gentle, and loving man who was a stellar example of what a husband, Papa, brother, and friend should be. He loved God with all his heart and I will miss him deeply.
I love you, Papa.

Fabulous Kids Creations Giveaway!

Ahhh, Spring is in the air and the kids can finally play outside again! With a family of 3 active boys (and a new baby girl), we spend a lot of time outdoors running, playing, and being silly. The one thing that would make this special time even more enjoyable is an incredible playset like the one you see here. My wee ones love going to the park and playing on all of the equipment there, but it's not always convenient to load up the crew to go, especially now that we have a new baby as well. How nice it would be to have such a beautiful piece accessible in our own backyard! And boy, how playsets have changed...I remember our little metal one from when I was a pee-wee. 2 swings, a glider that sqeaked with every movement, and a little metal slide that burned your legs when the sun was out! Definitely a far cry from this jem :) Oh how I would love to win this for my munchkins!

No, your eyes are not deceiving read's true, this wonderful swingset by Kids Creations valued at over $4000 is up for grabs! Stop by Dad Blogs for all of the nitty gritty details.

In addition to the playset, Dad Blogs is throwing in a Canon PowerShot SD1100 Digital Elph (retail value of $170) to capture all of the special family memories you are sure to make with this incredible set. Don't miss out!
