A Mom Blog Social Network
I haven't written in almost three months! End of pregnancy + new baby can leave one in an exhausted state of mind. I'm in the process of updating the design and name (changing to just Bliss + Baby... still happily wedded, just changing direction) I thought I'd kick off my return to blogging with an amazing giveaway!
Ever heard of Seraphine Maternity? I had not until they contacted me in December to do a review of one…

Major blogger/writer fail.
I knew this was going to happen: It's been a month. Procrastination is one of my go-to sins in life.
Being pregnant is a good excuse, right?
Having SPD/almost-broken pelvic bones is a good excuse, right?
Chasing after a 15 month old toddler is a good excuse, right?
Trying to get said 15 month old…

Poor E. We found out this week that he's officially outnumbered 3 to 1. My premonition from March came true: this little kicking babe is a girl. He said he won't be worried unless the NEXT one is a girl, too. (HAHAHA, the next one. He must mean in about 10…

I am a recovering Pinterest addict. When I first joined the site, I went on pinning rampages (winter in Utah w/ a 6 month old-- what else was I to do?). I ended up with over 3000 pins within a few months, which is maybe, kind-of, I concede, a little excessive. Now I have cut back to 20-30 pins and max 30 minutes a week, I swear, husband. But one of those lovely time-wasting afternoons was spend on Isla's first birthday party. It has to be big! It has to be cute! It has to be…Continue

Skin cancer awareness is very important to me. Firstly, I was a cancer registrar for almost 2 years and saw the devastating effects of melanoma, especially in Utah. Utah has the highest incidence of skin cancers because people here are outdoors all year long, and a LOT of these people don't use sunscreen. Secondly, I was a lifeguard for four summers…Continue

Confessions of a First Tima Mama is a bi-weekly feature where my friends Jessica, Mary and I write about all things baby, pregnancy, motherhood and marriage related.
When I first found out I was pregnant in October 2010, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops. Then, what I like to call "Pregnancy Anti-Social-itis" set in with the morning sickness, and I did not want anyone to know. This was my first pregnancy and none of anyone's business-- thus,…
