June Sponsor Spotlight and Post Round-Up

Happy 4th of July! It’s been raining non-stop here for the past few days (welcome to Florida) but we still had family over for a little gathering. The plan was to enjoy some fireworks, but mother nature had other plans for us and most nearby fireworks were cancelled. I hope you all enjoy any festivities going on in your neck of the woods…and be safe! Brett burned his hand on fireworks pretty badly a few years ago, so if anyone is used to saying “Be safe” it’s this gal!

Independence day


June was crazy busy. A good kind of busy. But still, very busy. We went to Disney for almost a week. A father and son birthday. A big 1st birthday party. Father’s day. Brett was super busy with photography, too…which is amazing, but also means our Disney trip report is still on the backburner…but we’re close!

So without further ado, our June Blog Sponsor Spotlight! Here’s a shout out to the amazing folks who help support our little portion of the internet. Be sure to check them out!

Custom Wooden Alphabet Blocks Names and Phrases by abcblockology

We bought an entire set of blocks in order to take photos with Trent’s name in blocks, and although they are now being used as toys, ABC Blockology offers a creative solution…custom blocks! They create customized names and phrases using wooden nursery blocks and can make great gifts for baby showers, birthdays, nursery decor, holidays, maternity and pregnancy photos and weddings. Their alphabet blocks are customized and hand painted to create a wonderful personalized gift to be cherished for years to come.


Swimways wantable-1

-If you have an infant or young toddler and expect to use a pool or the beach, then I highly recommend getting a Swimways Infant Float. Trent loves his and it lets him play while being under the shade. They also have a wide selection of adult floats…which I used mine so much over the past few years (float + Kindle + drink + long, lazy Saturdays = heaven), that it’s time for a new one!

Wantable is a monthly box subscription that lets you choose makeup or jewelry and ships quality items right to your door for one low price. I chose jewelry and was pleased with the items I received. Check it out if you want Christmas once a month when you receive your box in the mail.
