Five on Friday!!!

I am so glad that it is Finally FRIDAY!!!! 

1) This Week has been the first week that I have started to feel better. I did not think this day would come!!! I am so excited to find out what this baby is.. Countdown is on 2 more weeks until we find out what we are having!!!! 

2) Ok mommies out there I need advice on what is a good stroller? I am not sure if I want to do the new Gracco jogging travel system or the Britax? Any Suggestions 

3) Next week is the 4th of July and I am very excited.. We go to my Mom's lake house and normally have a house full. She is getting a band and having fireworks. This year will be hard because I can't drink all the yummy drinks people bring over but, I am going to try to make some fun Red, White and Blue things. 

4) Also mommies out there what are the top things you need for a new baby? What are things that you like or could have not lived with out? I love Suggestions!!!

5)I love being on Summer vacation I am going to be really sad when I have to go back to work in August:( 



  1. So glad you stopped by my blog!

    So excited for you to find out! As for baby stuff. I 100% recommend the BOB stroller. All my friends have it and recommended it to me and I could not be happier. Super easy to use. Works great indoors and outdoors.

    For things I couldn't live without:

    medala pump
    aden and anais muslin blankets
    mam pacifiers
    some type of swing
    tiny love mobile
    dr. brown bottles

    Hope that helps!

  2. By the way I was a kindergarten teacher before we had a baby. I miss it a lot!

  3. Thank you so much!!! I will check into the BOB stroller!! I love teaching too. How many years were you a teacher?

  4. I wanted to stop by your blog since you commented on mine. Congratulations on the baby!! I'm due with my second on October 1st! We are having a boy this time. I'm so excited for you to find out what you are having! I feel like knowing the sex makes everything seem more real.

    I don't have a travel system but my daughter uses a Britax convertible car seat. The company has really great safety ratings. We have a chicco keyfit 30 carseat for the baby but I'm not sure about their travel systems.

    Things I couldn't live without:

    1. Summer Infant Babytouch Video Monitor~ When I moved my daughter to her crib I would hear her make noises over the monitor and run in to see if she was ok. With the video monitor I could just check the screen. I was able to get a much better night sleep. It was a splurge but well worth it!

    2. Swaddles. I just used regular blankets last time but I'm going to try the aden and anais blankets. I've heard great things!

    3. Boppy pillow. I couldn't leave the house without it.

    4. Honest Company Diapers. I love that they have nothing bad in them and the designs are adorable!

    This time around I'm getting the Mamaroo bouncer from 4moms. Everyone that has one raves about it so I'm hoping it lives up the the hype!

    1. And I just started following you on Bloglovin so I can see what you're having. I think it is fun to follow other people who are pregnant at the same time you are!

  6. Thank you Ashley for all the suggestions!! I can't wait either to find out!!!!

  7. Cute Blog Chelsea! I was very overwhelmed with all of the choices of strollers, car seats, etc. There are so many out there! We have the Britax B-Agile stroller above, and we love it. It folds with one hand and it drives smoothly.
    You also don't have to get the same car seat and stroller, most have adapters that fit multiple types of seats.
    One thing I will suggest, is you think about where you are taking your stroller. If you are going to be doing paved areas, mostly walking, you probably won't need a heavier jogging stroller like the BOB. Also, even though the Britax is pretty easy to move around, it is still fairly big when you are in stores at the mall, etc. I am planning to get a smaller umbrella type stroller for when we are shopping and things, the bigger stroller just gets in the way.
    Hope that helps a little!

  8. We have the Britax and LOVE it! I also strongly suggest the Aden and Anais swaddle blankets. Loved those! We also love our swing (it cradles and swings so depending on baby's preference, you have options). I also love wearing my daughter (although she's on strike right now) so I strongly suggest a Moby or K'Tan. Finally, if you're breastfeeding, you need Lanolin of some kind. That stuff works wonders! Found you through the link up on Friday. Congrats!

  9. Thank you so much for all your comments.. It will help me so much :) Can't wait to start shopping for things
