Recommended Product

I wanted to take a minute to tell you all about a fabulous product made specifically for babies with stomach discomfort due to colic, teething, hiccups or excess gas. Gripe Water is an all natural, herbal digestive aid made without parabens or alcohol. Not only is it safe to give to your baby, it actually works!

I feel very blessed that neither of my babies were colicky or had excessive gas on a regular basis. When they were fussy and obviously uncomfortable, this stuff is like a miracle! It eases their pain so fast, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t tried it before

I have personally recommended this product to friends and family who have had the same results  as me so I am confident in its ability to work for you too.


I talked about the new Nespresso machine we purchased back in June and I thought I should give a quick update.

That’s it!

No, really, we have used the machine every day since it was purchased and even

took it with us for a weekend family getaway. It is so easy to use, makes excellent espresso, and is a piece of cake to clean. Plus you can customize your coffee

I had a Starbucks latte the other day and I didn’t like it compared to what I make myself at home – I am so spoiled! The funny thing is, I bought the machine for my husband and I use it almost just as much. That gift worked out nicely 🙂however you like – I typically enjoy a vanilla iced coffee or vanilla latte.

I highly recommend this machine!

My favorite roasts are the Volluto, Finezzo Lungo and Rosabaya. Brett’s are Ristretto, Arpeggio and Rosabaya. We both prefer the short shot.

I would look down at my checklist and see “pacifier” and then go to that section and […]

Espresso At Home

June 21, 2011

Update: See if I still recommend this Nespresso Machine by viewing this post My hardworking husband likes to indulge in a latte or mocha just about everyday. His favorite stop: Starbucks. Many of you Seattle area residents know how addicting and costly this habit can be! As an investment moving forward (under the guise as […]
