An Ok Easter Basket Haul I know what you are thinking… ‘Its not even March yet Kelsey…CHILL’. Well I can’t chill… in general.. BUT I also know that stores run out of holiday stuff fast and usually don’t replenish. Most of the good stuff isn’t available for purchase online. Plus, if you are planning on doing a basket and filling eggs you are going to need even more supplies. So drop what you are doing and head to the store for your own Easter basket haul… after you finish reading this post. I think I’ve mentioned this earlier but we […]
Ok toddler style – I’m back for another OOTD. We went and visited Amys Cupcake Shoppe in downtown Hopkins, and if you are local to the Minneapolis area… GO! I can’t say enough nice stuff about this place. The cupcakes are awesome, and I’m a tough critic… I usually hate the cupcake places people rave about ( I like to be difficult to please… obviously). I swear I have the unique ability to taste preservatives/chemicals in baked goods from miles away, Amy’s passed this test with flying colors. The best part about Amy’s is this cute play area. I had […]
I can’t let Danielle have all the fun…. these are our ‘Outfits of the day’ today. Kid style can be tricky, I want my kids to look cool but I also know they are going to possibly lay down on the floor of the mall in their clothes for a good ole fashion tantrum, or smash fries into their fur vests (happened today). It may seem like an exercise in futility dressing your child in ‘outfits’ instead of just whatever is easy, but it doesn’t have to be! I don’t go to many boutiques because HELLO I have TWO to dress. It […]
I’ve loved baby style long before I was ever a mom. (I’m kind of weird.) Before I ever got pregnant, I fantasied of dressing up my future daughter like Alexander Wang’s niece. I mean, have you seen her?? Now that I actually do have a little girl, reality is here to tell me that if I can’t afford to buy myself a Chanel boy bag, my baby sure as hell isn’t getting one. In fact, if we don’t leave the house, I rarely change her out of her pajamas. The other day, I even became the mom I always said […]

Incredibundles Review: A Year of Diapers The best baby shower gift I received was a one year diaper subscription from my mother-in-law. Not having to worry about running out to the store, and not having to PAY for diapers for an entire year sounded amazing. With the Incredibundles “Year of Diapers“, you receive 12 shipments of diapers and can choose when you want the shipments, the size and brand, etc. The first box lasted only about 2 weeks, because newborns go through diapers every two seconds. As my daughter got older, a box started lasting approximately a month as promised. […]
Alright, time to discuss something that no one wants to discuss… baby snot, and more specifically, inventions made to deal with baby snot. Here’s our honest take on the products we have tried, in a new segment for our blog- ok moms review products. Today’s products: the oogie bear VS. the NoseFrida.
Christmas is over and its time to focus on the next holiday up- Valentines day. Side note- I should really take my tree down. As a kid, Valentines Day was my favorite holiday. My mom threw me these awesome after school tea parties. There would be a spread of cutesy decorated sweets and kiddy champagne in my teapot…. I felt like a celebrity. The cherry on top was always the Valentines basket. I knew the minute I heard “its two girls” at my 20 week ultrasound that this was a tradition I had to keep alive. Plus you gotta soak […]
So shopping has always been a huge part of my life because I’m a shallow person. Also because I model my life after Cher from clueless… who doesn’t want to be Cher from clueless?! Just me? oh ok… moving on.. Shopping after having kids has become more of a guilt trip than a pleasure cruise. I know I’m not alone on that. In a past life, I never batted an eyelash at four figure handbags…I’m gross and I know this isn’t endearing at all. I regularly gave away items from my closet with tags still attached (see? I’m not so […]
