Today my munchkin and I went to BABW for the very first time. She was a little scared when it came time to actually stuff the bear, but she was a little trooper. Now we have a new addition to our family, her name is Maibear. She's a Disney Princess shirt wearing ice skater. It was fun and once she got into it, she wanted to buy undies and everything for her bear. Luckily I was able to get out of buying undies for a stuffed animal!

I have been surfing the web for months now! I want to redecorate my daughter's bedroom, but I can't decide on a theme. There are so many cute ideas out there! Every time I think I have it pinned down, I see something else so cute!

I borrowed this cookbook from the library. It is a great little cookbook! The recipes are simple and organized in an easy to read manner. If your little one(s) are anything like mine, they will be thrilled to help Mom out in the kitchen. Paula includes photos of the ingredients and utensils that will be used. Fab idea for the kiddos that cannot read yet! I am definitely going to pick one of these up.

I'm not really an orange kind of girl, but I found these orange decor pieces delightful. This color palette would be perfect for a baby shower if the Mom To Be is not for pink or blue or an Orange Bowl party for the football fanatics out there! The turquoise accent tops it off.
