2012: Holiday Gift Guide: Tumblewee Etsy Shop (Upcycled Infant Onesies)

A while back, I won a giveaway to choose an upcycled infant onesie! I chose one with Mickey Mouse. I couldn't wait to see how it was going to turn out. When I received it, I thought it was cute. But, since I put in on Hailey this morning, I am in love with it! It's very soft, and it fits her nicely, along with room to grow! It fits nicely around her neck and arms. I had to roll up the sleeves a little, but that's because it's a little big, which is great, because it's only November!

The onesie looks better than that, but of course, with a baby, you can never get the exact photo you want. She was in the mood to kick and wiggle!

Tumblewee sells organic & upcycled clothing including onesies and leg warmers! So if your looking for a unique, handmade gift for someone on your Christmas list this season, check out Tumblewee!

2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Baby-Bee Haven Cush n' Go Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 11/21 (Rafflecopter)

My children have never liked sitting in strollers for very long. But since I received the Cush n' Go memory foam stroller cushion from Baby-Bee Haven, Hailey is more than happy to sit in the stroller for an hour or two and she loves it! The memory foam also helps to keep her warm from underneath her body. We live in Tennessee and it's been in the low to mid-50's here during the day. So we go to the park often, and it's nice to know that Hailey is warm, and happy while we are there.

The Baby-Bee Haven's Cush n' Go is:
  • Soft, stylish support for baby's back, head, and neck
  • High-quality memory foam conforms to infant's head, decreasing resistance and the risk of flat-head syndrome.
  • Reversible, two-sided design
  • Compatible with most stroller harness systems.
  • Machine washable (read care instructions)
I have been using the Cush n' Go on the Leopard Print side. I am not a Leopard Print fan, but it's really cute and many people have commented on it and asked me where I got it!

Baby-Bee Haven also makes a Cush n' Go with bee print on one side and black on the other side for boys. I think it's cute for either boys or girls.

You can also purchase a See n' Store for your stroller! It's a stroller organizer that can hold your cell phone, water bottle, and your iPad, Kindle, or a portable DVD player!

Check out the Swing n' Smart and the Dream Feeder (infant feeding pillow for nursing or bottle fed babies)! I have been using a small pillow or bunching up a blanket for under Hailey's head when I nurse her hand's free. Lately she has been wanting to nurse when I want to eat. This could really come in handy, especially outside at the park or the zoo, where I have to uncover her to use her blanket for support and then she is cold when I nurse her.

I am including Baby-Bee Haven's Cush n' Go in my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide because I believe that every mom and baby should own one! I think it's one of the greatest inventions ever! I volunteer with a local animal rescue, and I need to be able to handle puppies and dogs, and talk to people who ask questions about them. I can't do that while holding my daughter. The Cush n' Go has made my life a lot easier, and my daughter a lot happier.

Disclosure: I received one cush n' go from Baby Bee Haven in exchanged for my review and giveaway post. No other compensation was exchanged or received. Airplanes and Dragonflies blog is not responsible if you do not receive your prize or if you receive your prize and it's broken or damaged.

What's One Thing You've Always Wanted To Do In Your Life? ("Fifty Two Shades of Blue-ish" - book)

I have always wanted to go to another continent. I never thought in a million years that I would ever get the chance. In 2006, my husband had taken a few trips for his work back and forth to India. I had scene and heard of his adventures and of the things that he wanted to see. I had mentioned that I would like to go to India someday, and of the things that I wanted to see and do.

So a few weeks after he had gotten back from his second trip, they wanted him to go back. It honestly seemed like he had just gotten home. We had gotten married a few weeks before they asked him to leave again. So he asked them if they would pay for me to go to, that he would go and stay for a few months. They agreed! We flew out the end of June and we didn't fly back home until the beginning of November! We saw the Taj Mahal, some awesome forts and castle type buildings, ate some really spicy food, and we saw the Indian ocean in Goa, India. On our way home, we spend seven days in Amsterdam. The Netherlands (Europe)! Our hotel was centrally located and we were able to walk where ever we wanted to go! We got to see the Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, ride on a boat in the canals, eat breakfast in an Irish pub, and more! We even saw a movie in a theater, and while waiting for the movie to start, a mouse was sitting on an arm rest in front of us! We have some great memories from our journey, and then some!

What's the one thing that you've always wanted to do, or have you accomplished it already? Check out Fifty Two Shades of Blu-ish, and read about author Karen S. Exkorn's bucket list and her adventures! You can read about Karen below!

When author Karen S. Exkorn set out to write an erotic humor novel, she had just turned 52 and felt she had finally reached a stage in her life where it was time to do all things she was afraid or embarrassed to share in public. A woman of many shades, Exkorn, now keeps a list of things outside her comfort zone that she wants to try NOW ( which she NEVER refers to as a bucket list because,  let’s face it, anything with the word “die” in it isn’t all that fun.)  Recent “check-offs” from her list include “Meet Beyonce”, “Flashing a truck driver” and  “Go on a date with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.”  The author calls upon all women to grab a pen, channel their inner princesses and start making their own lists too.

Is there something that you've always been too scared or too embarrased to try? Grab a pen, pencil, or word page and start making your own lists of what you would like to accomplish in your life, and start doing them, NOW!

View the First chapter of the book! You can check out more information about Fifty Two Shade of Blu-ish on this website:
