Friday Finds and More!

Happy Friday! It has been awhile since I have written! Busy, Busy in the Tappan household. I am now 17 weeks pregnant and every day is a new adventure. Yesterday, I woke up angry and this morning I woke up ready to cry and throw in the towel. I guess these hormones really take a lot out of a girl! My husband is afraid to get out of bed in the morning, never knowing if it will be his sweet wife or the monster twin awaiting him! I guess he can handle it.

Part of this emotional rollercoaster is my HUGE bag order from my most recent Sew Cute! at home complaints here, but I am a bit overwhelmed. I have made 6 bags (various sizes) with matching wallets, keychains, etc. and still have 5 bags to go. Thankfully, the accessories are already completed. My etsy shop is waning and the store I sell my bags in needs more! YIKES! Doug reminded me I just need to breathe and take it one day at a time. I will try that and get back to you!

On a happy note, today is our 5 year anniversary! April 16th was the date of our first date....and we got married one year later. Doug and I have known each other since high school, so this was no speedy engagement. It's been a great five years, full of love and learning and I wouldn't trade any of it.

Since I am expecting, I have been searching Etsy for cute baby items. I even tried to post a treasury, but to no avail. My friends use "nursing bracelets" - beaded bracelets that have numbers on them to help you remember when you last nursed, and what side you nursed on. I found this particular bracelet very cheerful and fun from a seller called Chunky Monkey Toes.

Do you have any favorite baby products? Help a girl out! Post a comment with some links to great finds that worked for you. Also, any suggestions on which cloth diaper hybrids to use? =)

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend. =)


  1. Happy Anniversary! <3

    A friend just posted this on her journal this week, and maybe it will be helpful. She did a super detailed review of every baby carrier she's used, and included her husband's opinions too. Very cool!

    And the cloth diapering section at GCM is pretty thorough:

  2. My FAV baby item is a Moses basket....they are wonderful for toting baby around and bringing them with you when you go to family or freind's house cause it is a little place for baby to sleep. We used ours all the time (for the first two months til baby outgrows it) bringing the baby outside with us in the basket while spending time with friends...they are a great heirloom too if you get a nice one.
