Baby Gear Drive Thru? Yes, please.


Hello, hello!! Long time no talk! AH! You know how it goes… Mom Life.

Even though my kiddos are 3 1/2 and 2 1/2, I find myself STILL browsing baby gear websites and needing all the new goodies!!! The struggle is real my friends. I’ve said it more than once, I am strolling my son into his College dorm in a stroller… I just can’t give them up.

Anyways… during my most recent stint of insomnia, I stumbled upon It’s a super cute website featuring all the latest and greatest in the baby gear world. Awesome. But a little icon appeared that said “Free shipping. We price match”. Those are two things I love. I can’t help it. I love a good deal! I mean, they even price match Amazon. #sold

After browsing their website and seeing some super cool things they do that made me sad I don’t live in Utah… or have an infant. First off, they have DRIVE UP ORDERING. Yes. It’s like a drive thru for baby gear. I mean… can we talk about it!!  As if that wasn’t enough to make every Mom jump for joy, they also have a TRACK inside of their store to test strollers!!!! If I walked into this store, it would be a disaster. I would be in there for hours just running around the track all day testing every stroller possible. How awesome is that though? It’s so hard to get a feel for a stroller pushing it through tiny isles in a crowded baby store. A track is GENIUS.

Ok, back to what I came here to do! I thought I would pop back in and share a few of my fave picks from their website for new parents! Finding the perfect gear can be a daunting task… hopefully this will make it a little easier… if it doesn’t, scroll down and let Baby Cubby do the picking FOR YOU!

  1. DaVinci Jenny Lind Stationary Crib with Toddler Rail – So so so cute!!! It converts into a toddler bed and a day bed, has 4 adjustable mattress positions and is finished in non-toxic multi-step painting process. I am totally in love with this crib!!


2. Clek Fllo Convertible Car Seat – If you have ben doing any research on Car Seats and safety, you have definitely seen the Clek! This Car Seat is AMAZING. It can be used from 5 lbs (with the Clek insert) up to 65 lbs! I cannot say enough great things about this Car Seat. Go to Baby Cubby and check it out!!!


3. Stokke Tripp Trapp – This thing is the bomb. It’s cute, lasts FOREVER, and is easy to wipe clean. I don’t think I need to say anything else. ha!


4. Ju Ju Be B.F.F. Diaper Bag – Saved the best for last. THEY CARRY JU JU BE!!!  I LOVE JJB. For so many reasons!! Machine washable (if you don’t think this is important, talk to me when your kid has its first blowout diaper), cute, fictional, lot’s of pockets. I love pockets. Do yourself a favor and waddle your pregnant self into this store and shop your heart out.



If you don’t love any of my picks… that’s cool. No hard feelings. Baby Cubby can help you with that because they also offer Baby Gear Bundles. I can’t even. I would have done this is a hot second when I was pregnant! Literally takes the guess-work out and they pretty much do everything short of delivering your baby for you. If they could do that, I would for sure have another child…


Do yourself a favor and visit this store or their website. I love everything they carry! They have researched these products, and make sure us parents are getting quality products we will love!   They have an awesome community blog with tons of info to help you stay in-the-know  during those sleepless nights, too!

Happy Strolling, friends!

Baby Registry: Top 6 picks!

Registering for your baby gear is seriously intense. Your feet are crazy swollen & emotions are all over the place. You had no clue how much crap a tiny baby needed and all you can think about is how bad you have to pee. I was crazy overwhelmed with the process so I wanted to share some of my faves that you can check off your list!

 1. Nuna LEAF


Watch me sleep, now watch me sway sway. I LOVE the Nuna LEAF because it’s neutral and a space saver. This will grow with your child as it’s suitable form birth up to 130 lbs. Like, your butt can totally chill in this seat and watch the RHOBH if you wanted too…just sayin.

Nuna just came out with a great little attachment, the WIND, which allows the LEAF to continuously sway from side to side without your assistance. Sign. Me. Up.



The VISTA is such a great stroller for a growing family. Not only is the VISTA an amazing single stroller, but, it’s a fab double stroller. You can use this from birth all the way up to toddler years. You can even use it will 3 kids if you needed to. The large basket is great for new parents that are lugging all that crap –  um, I mean gear – you need with a newborn!  Trust me on this one and stroll in style…get the VISTA!

3. 4MOMS Breeze


This is my faaaave! We use it daily and LOVE. IT. The 4MOMS is SO easy to open and close. It’s literally done with one hand which makes this my favorite playard/travel crib available! The bassinet feature is great and suitable from birth to 18 pounds, while the playard is suitable up to 30 pounds. You also get a nice little travel bag for when you need to take naps on the go! Do yourself a favor and go with the Breeze. I promise you’ll love it!

4. Stokke Tripp Trapp

Tripp Trapp 150416-2679 Hazy Grey BS US_25861

I have the Tripp Trapp on this list for a few reasons, the main one being that this high chair grows with your child and will seriously last you forever. Plus, it looks pretty nice at the dining room table… have you seen the awesome colors it comes in?? Swoon! The Tripp Trapp is easy keep clean and has a couple great accessories to add-on making is the perfect high chair for your growing family.

5. Maxi Cosi Mico AP


The Maxi-Cosi AP is awesome! It’s currently the lightest infant car seat in its class which is awesome because once that baby hits around 10 lbs, you feel like your lugging around a bag of cement every time you lift a car-seat. A couple other great features on the Maxi-Cosi AP is the updated self-wicking fabric that helps keep baby dry and comfortable, a great canopy to keep baby protected from the sun, and a newborn head insert for a nice snug fit. Oh, and did I mention the fabric is machine washable and dryer safe? SOLD!! On a serious note, this seat is fantastic and SAFE. The LATCH system helps you get a great fit in your car, and the Air Protect Side Impact Technology gives your precious baby the protection they need while in the car.

**Your Car Seat is a major purchase from your registry, and I’m not talking about the price tag. This is what will be keeping your child safe and secure in the event of an accident. PLEASE READ your manual, use the seat as directed, and get with a Certified Passenger Safety Technician to make sure you have the proper installation for your seat/child!   PSA is now over**

6. LILLEbaby Carrier


Trust that this NEEDS to be on your Baby Registry. I would not be here today if it wasn’t for baby wearing. LILLEbaby has tons of different carriers so you will definitely find a good fit. I love the Complete All Seasons because baby wearing can get a little sweaty, especially in the Summer. The Complete All Seasons unzips to expose cool, breathable 3-D mesh to help with the heat. There are 6 different carrying position to keep you sane from newborn to crazy toddler years.

Almost everything on this list will get you through newborn to toddlers years, and beyond! My advice to new parents is going to the store, look at all the gear and see what you love. Push the strollers around, fold the playard, ask the sales associate to install the car seat in your car to make sure it’s a good fit! Don’t be afraid to ask questions…you wouldn’t buy a car without test-driving it and the same should go for baby gear 🙂

Happy Strolling!



UPPAbaby G-LINK Review.


G-G-G-G-LINK!!! See what I did there?  That’s about as far as my rapping goes.

Ok. The G-LINK is here!!  Yessss. It’s so good.  I am in love this light-weight double.  It’s got everything you’re looking for, and then some. Are you surprised?   You shouldn’t be.  UPPAbaby never disappoints!  We’ve  been using this for everyday errands and it seriously makes life so much easier.  It’s easy to get in and out of the car 3 or 4 times a day,  folds in two seconds,  and leaves plenty of extra room in the trunk for any Target clearance items! #winning #doublethelove



The UPPAbaby G-LINK weighs in at just 24.5 pounds,  features independent flat reclines,  a generous 50 lb weight limit per seat,  large extendable canopies, super easy fold,  AND is suitable from birth.  It even comes with two newborn head support inserts and a nifty little mesh foot barrier to keep the peanuts  safe during the mushy baby stage!

The seats on the G-LINK are easily one of my favorite features this ride has to offer.  They are well thought out, and super cozy for the kids.   If you’re using this for newborns, the G-LINK includes 2 plush head support inserts and two mesh foot barriers that are attached under the seat.  The foot barrier is easy to stow away when not in use, and I love that it’s attached. One less accessory you need to keep track of!  Ain’t nobody got time for that with two kids.



The seat back height is nice and tall  (18″ from the seat to the top of the seat back) and plenty more room from the seat to the top of the canopy (check out the specs below).   A 4/5 year-old could easily ride comfortably in the seats providing they are within the maximum weight limit.  The 5-point  harness straps are easy to adjust, and the clip is nice and secure. Harper is like frickin’ Houdini lately and can’t get out of this harness! hallelujah!

Each leg rest is adjustable, which is a huge plus if you’ve got a toddler, like Brody, who doesn’t need the extra leg support.  I will say though, that feature is so nice to have… We were out shopping the other day and Brody fell asleep in the car between stores.  I managed to do a successful transfer, which we all know winning the Mom Lottery.  I put him in the G-LINK with the seat fully reclined and the leg rest up so he could be extra cozy! Total lifesaver! Adjustable leg rest = must have!

The fabric is plush and super easy to keep clean.  I know this because we had a pretty intense pooplosion at IKEA, like the kind where you just throw everything away and pretend that didn’t just happen,  and the seat looks brand new after I cleaned it!  I may or may not have gasped in horror saying “oh my god, not on my new stroller…” when my Husband showed me the damage… HA! #sewnotfun #ionlyhadfourwipesleft #momfail

Ok, back on track here…The canopies are amazing considering this is an umbrella stroller.  They feature an SPF 50+ extendable sunshade which you all know by now is super important to me.  There is also a nice little peek-a-boo window that gives you a good view of the kiddos, and a pocket on the back that can store anything from your cell phone to the kids snacks. LOVE. IT.


My absolute favorite feature on the G-LINK is the storage basket.  It’s super happy!

The storage basket has a maximum weight capacity of 10 lbs and is accessible from the back and sides. The best part of the storage basket is that it’s actually easy to access.  Can you imagine?  A storage basket that’s easy to access?  Can I get unanimous, HOLLA!!  Thank you, UPPAbaby.  Thank you.   No one does a storage basket quite like they do.  I can fit two packed Ju-Ju-Be- Super Be’s, the kids coats, and even a few Target goodies or groceries. If you need one reason to justify this purchase to your other half,  let it be that one.  If you are in need of a light-weight double for everyday use, travel,  themes parks, etc. you NEED storage space. Trust me!


The push is surprisingly pretty good on this little gem.  I was a little nervous at first, but, it really has a decent push. It handles Target VERY well.  And that’s really all that matters, right?

What you need to take into consideration is that the G-LINK is a light-weight double umbrella stroller.  This is not going to have a one-hand push like the Vista or an all-terrain double. It’s not supposed to.  The push is not heavy, and I don’t feel it pull to one side with both kids in it.  It’s very easy to maneuver, and the perfect stroller for errands, traveling, theme parks, etc.  I’ve taken the G-LINK on many walks over bumpy side walks,  dirt,  and yes, even some slush, and have not had an issue.  It gets my stamp of approval!

Last, but not least, the fold.  The G-LINK has a very simple fold (check out my video below to see!). It folds into itself, keeping the fabric protected, and stands while folded. It’s compact, easy to do, and even has a nifty little carry strap if you need to transport it anywhere.   It’s so easy to get in and out of the trunk, and makes those hectic days running errands with both kids so much easier!

**Note- Use the center grey pull to unfold, versus the handles, which could compromise the strength over time.


Overall,  I am borderline obsessed with the G-LINK.   It’s sturdy enough to handle the beating of everyday use,  comfortable for the kids to nap in,  and offers plenty of storage for all the crap you need with two kiddos!

The list of double umbrella strollers  I recommend is short. Like, really short.  It only has the G-LINK on it…ha! I don’t know if you’ve ever pushed around any other double Umbrella Strollers but it’s kind of a nightmare. They usually have an extra set of wheels in the middle which makes it hard to maneuver, and gets in the way of your stride. The canopies are always lacking, and you usually don’t have any storage space. You don’t have any of those issues with the G-LINK.  Not to mention the quality is perfection.  You get what you pay for…

Automatic lock, standing fold. Carry strap for easy handling

ATST Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Ho, ho, ho! The Holiday season is here, and that means it’s time to stop procrastinating, and start shopping! #haventboughtonethingyet #theresstilltime

This post is dedicated to all those Husbands (hey babe, make sure you read this!!) out there trying to figure out what in the hell to get their Baby Gear loving Wife for the Holidays. Have no fear gentlemen, I’ve got you covered!!

  1.   Ju Ju Be Super Be in First Lady ($60.00)


The Ju-Ju-Be Super Be is probably my favorite bag they have. It’s so roomy and versatile, every Mama needs one in her collection! You can use this as a diaper bag, over night bag, gym bag, work, bag, etc. The possibilities are endless! The Super Be comes in so many fun prints, but, my favorite is the First Lady! Black and white stripes never go out of style are a great way to make our “Mom Dress Code” (aka yoga pants and a messy bun) look a little  more put together!


2. Thule Urban Glide or Urban Glide 2 ($399.95 single and $649.95 double on Amazon)


Thule is on this list for a few reasons. 1. It’s starting to snow and it’s freakishly cold outside. It sucks. Sometime around March your wife will decide that she wants to get active, get outside and go for a run with the kids. This will most likely never happen (or maybe I’m just the only lazy one)… BUT, it’s still nice to have the option and a stroller that candle snowy terrains!  2. The basket has a zippered cover that keeps everything safe and protected from not so great weather! Love that! 3. It’s really pretty!  Yes, that is a real reason. The Urban Glide or Urban Glide 2 are even great for every day use because they’re fairly light weight, easy to fold, and can handle anything from errands to a long run in the frigid cold.


3. 7AM Polar WarMMuffs  ($44.00)


Winter is here and it’s here to stay. Keep those hands toasty warm while you’re pushing the little one around in this miserable weather. I love this as a gift for Moms and Dads because it’s probably not something you would typically get for yourself. This is one of those gifts you’ll get, and wonder how you ever lived without them!


4.  Nuna Leaf ($229.95)


The Nuna Leaf is a super cozy bouncer for your baby…or even toddler! It’s compact so it doesn’t take up too much space, and it will actually look great in your living room! Plus, it holds up to 130 lbs!!! Talk about bang for your buck. Toddlers can sit in this seat and be totally comfortable! Hell, I can sit in the seat and be comfortable! A safe, comfortable place for your child to sit is a must have! How else are you suppose to go to the bathroom alone!?!  #justaddedthistomychristmaslist


5. UPPAbaby G-LINK ($499.99 – $529.00)


Yesssssssss! The G-LINK is here!! It’s new and everyone with two kids wants one!! This little gem weighs in at 24.5 lbs, each seat holds up to 50 lbs, has independent flat reclines, can be used from birth (comes with two infant head supports), AND folds in one easy step! Make running errands with the babes a little easier for everyone and pre-order the UPPAbaby G-LINK!! #justdoit


6. Wine


Do I even need to explain myself here? To make this gift extra special, get THIS super amazing wine tumblr…


7. Ju Ju Be Be Prepared ( $200.00)


If you are in the market for a new diaper bag, travel bag, or overnight/hospital bag, the Be Prepared is just what you’ve been looking for. It’s BIG!! There are so many pockets to keep the bag organized, and a Mommy Pocket for all of your Mommy needs. I love this bag so much! It’s every over-packers dream bag! The pockets keep everything in its place and my OCD self happy. If you want to bring everything and the kitchen sink with you when you leave the house, the Be Prepared is for you. It’s a winner for sure!


8. Hunter Boots ($150.00)


Like how put these one on here, ladies? These are a total necessity! Sloshing through the snow with two kids is a nightmare. Especially when your boots are getting all wet, and snow is getting inside! Hunter Boots are perfect for winter. Just pair them with their fleece liners and you have super cute, easy to clean winter boots! Plus, grab these in red and pair them with that First Lady Super Be or Queen of the Nile Ju-Ju-Be above and you are looking like one hot mama!!


9. Nuna Tavo ($349.95)


Clearly, I have a thing for Nuna. I know I’m not alone though! The Nuna Tavo is a new light weight stroller that has everything you’re looking for.  Super flat recline, spacious seat that holds up to 50 lbs, large basket, compact fold, and easy-peasy push! I’ll take one in every color, please! Any stroller loving Mama (or Dad) will absolutely love adding the Tavo to their line-up.


10. Tula Baby Carrier ($149.00)


Caw, Caw!! Tula in the Wild!!! If you are a Tula lover, you know what that was all about. If you’re not, then you probably think I’ve officially lost my mind! I LOVE, like, seriously love, Tulas! They are soooo comfortable and come in the most adorable prints and colors! How cute is the “enDEERing” print pictured!? Tulas are Ergonomic Baby Carriers. They come in Standard and Toddler size, and are comfortable for the kids and leave your back, pain-free. If you get one baby carrier, make it this one. You won’t regret it!


11. Bugaboo Donkey (I refuse to put the price as it may deter the Husbands from buying…LOL)


If you really want to splurge on a gift for your loved one, this would be the ultimate baby gear gift. If you’ve gone one child, this stroller is one bad mama jama! There’s an awesome side basket you use in mono mode that’s pretty life changing. If you’ve got two kids, the Donkey in Duo mode is arguably the best double stroller on the market. Buy this stroller and your wife will be the happiest baby gear addict on the planet! #lovehasnopricetag #buythedonkey


Any of the above would make a great gift for any Baby Gear lover! A glass of wine while opening up a new  Ju-Ju-Be bag or UPPAbaby G-LINK? Yes please!!!! Whatever gift you decide on, make it your own and add a little special touch to it 😉

Wishing you all Happy Holidays spent with the ones you love!

Happy Strolling
