Links I am Loving…

(Loves to sit and watch whatever Daddy is doing in the garage… and one of his favorite toys: my hair curlers!)
All kinds of good stuff today!

Sewing blogs I’m really inspired by right now… my old favorite and two new favorites.

A great and easy sewing project for gDiaper mamas (I hand-sewed these while watching a movie several months ago, piece of cake) and a no-sew babywearing poncho for cold weather. My aunt sent this to me when I was looking for ideas last year but I put it off and then the weather warmed up. I think I’m ready to give it a go now though!

Oh, Pinterest. I have it on my Kindle and was waiting for something for a very long time the other day… so out came the Pinterest. I found so many sweet newborn photos that make me so impatient for February! Like this one, this one, this one and this one!

On that note… if you’re interested, you can find me on Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.

I had a ton of back labor the first time around because the baby was in the occipital posterior position (the back of his head was against my spine instead of his face). I’m hoping to avoid that this time around so I’m a big fan of the tips and tricks on this website, which is also helpful for women carrying a breech baby.

This is our dream stroller… it comfortable houses two kiddos, safely covers them up to protect them from the elements (and as a bonus, no toys/water bottles can be thrown all the way out of it as long as that cover is down!) and also doubles as a bike trailer should we feel like finally getting out and riding our bikes again! We never got a baby seat (make me so nervous!) so we haven’t ridden once since the little guy was born!

We recently took a trip to the Grand Tetons and Jackson, Wyoming (they’ll get their own posts soon enough, promise) where I had a truly delicious breakfast of gluten free biscuits with bison sausage gravy. I’m now obsessed (craving?). I’ll be using bison instead of pork sausage, but I’m making my own version soon using this recipe.

*I used affiliate links for some of these links. I’ll be using affiliates links often here because eventually the some-odd cents I make from a “sale” adds up to be enough for a gallon of gas. Every penny counts, right?


  1. Can't wait to start sewing projects! Life is almost settled down enough to. Except not really, but maybe further into the semester.

    So obviously I knew you'd have two children, but the stroller was the thing that made me be like, TWO CHILDREN! hahaha So exciting! I was talking to Vince about getting a baby seat for the bike when we were talking about taking pictures for the pregnancy announcement, and he was like, 'Any bike shop that has a baby seat is a terrible shop, those things are completely unsafe and any reputable shop would never sell them.' So good thing you didn't get one! haha

    1. Well those baby hats I made from a solft old t-shirt took like 30 minutes each so maybe you can at least find time for those some time soon!

      Yes, isn't that nuts?!
      I looked into it while I was pregnant and read that the trailers are way safer but they're obviously way more expensive so I didn't ever get one. Does Vince have an opinion on the trailers? We talked to someone at a bike shop traveling once and they recommended the Thule brand but he would be someone I'd trust to give an honest opinion on it!

    2. Also, pregnancy announcement! Can I see the picture if we're not getting an announcement? =]
