A Few of my Favorite Things 2.0

I know that MOST of my readers are just stopping in to see pics of Cash or the girls (ahem, Mom and Dad), so of course I'll start this post with a cute pic of the little man with his eyes open. It's kind of a rarity- the kiddo likes to sleep. Anyhow, I have a few more faves that I wanted to share. The first of which is pictured below.

This is the Kiddopotamus SwaddleMe swaddling device. It. Is. Incredible. If you are having a baby or know someone who is, you need one of these (or 2- for those middle of the night messes). I'm just disappointed that we only discovered this invention for our 3rd (and final) babe.

I must give Chad credit for this next find. He spotted these like a hawk at Target one day. They were a bit pricey, but imagine our surprise when we found them on SALE! I must say that the container is a bit small. We only wish they sold these at Sam's or Costco! Just try them and you will love them. They remind me of a pastry that we sold at the Gift Horse/La Baguette back in my high school working days. Delish.

OK, OK, OK- I will start by saying that this series is NO West Wing (our FAVE TV show to watch straight through on DVD) or anything. It's also not really a show that my mom or dad would like/approve of. It IS mindless entertainment that passes the time when you don't have cable. We have blazed through the first 4 seasons on DVD and have thoroughly enjoyed this show. I know we are late to the party since this show has been winning Emmy awards and Golden Globes for years, but we DEFINITELY love the characters and their antics.

This last one may be a BIT confusing. No, I'm not converting to a KSU fan or anything, but I am a BIG fan of our new hometown of MANHATTAN, KS- home of Kansas State University. We are only a couple of weeks away from the big move, and I'm getting really excited. Let me share some reasons WHY Manhattan, KS is one of my favorite things:

1- Target- enough said.

2- College Town- fun food, shops, and LOTS of babysitters available! Not to mention, things will actually stay open past 6:00 pm. THAT will be a novel idea for us.

3- Scenery- Manhattan is located in the Flint Hills- this is the ONLY part of Kansas that is NOT flat as far as the eye can see. It is actually QUITE beautiful and reminds me a bit of Birmingham.

4- Hometown of the late Earl Woods, father of Tiger Woods. I guess this is more of a fun fact that my husband enjoys.

So anyhow, those are some of my FAVORITE things at for the moment. Keep checking back for some new pics of the girls and of course baby Cash. He is a delight and EVERYONE (especially Harper) is smitten with him.


  1. Cash is so handsome! Our internet has been down so I wasn't able to comment on your previous post which I loved! I love how you love my son! Now that you have your own little guy you will begin to understand how much that means!!!

  2. yummm..i want those little twisty things right now! sorry i haven't posted pics of the has them all on her camera and we've been at the cameron's non-stop the past few days.
