Josephine- 3 months


Dear Josephine,

I truly cannot believe that you are 3 months old already. These past months have been nothing but a blessing. You are the sweetest and most loving little girl, calm and easy to read. You are smiling and giggling up and storm and with each smile and bit of laughter I can’t help but feel complete inside. My heart fills with happiness and feelings of being so blessed with 3 beautiful and amazing children. I couldn’t have asked God myself for more perfection in my life than you and your sister and brother. I’m so blessed and so lucky to be your mommy. I love watching you grow and learn new things. Each day is so bittersweet, watching you hold your head up higher each tummy time session, smiling more and more and sleeping in your crib. I hate to lose my tiny little baby but love to watch you thrive! I love you Pearly girl more than I could ever put into words. Happy 3 months beautiful girl!

Citrus Lane Review

Fresh Start toddler box


I ‘m in love with the whole concept of monthly boxes filled with items you can use for everyday use, for yourself or for little ones. It seems like there are a lot of new companies coming out and offering this service and I’m loving it. It makes purchasing so much easier and more convienent. I love getting to try new things or getting brands at my doorstep that I already know that I love.

Citrus Lane is one of these awesome companies! They are care packages for parents. I received their Fresh Start box and was thrilled! So were my children. There was something that each of us immediatly connected to in the box. Me the wonderful chapstick Ezra the tug boat bath toy, and Finley the shampoo and conditioner! Each month has a theme and the boxes often have popular name brands such as Tea collection, Zutano and Noodle and Boo.

With Citrus Lane, you’ll get a box every month filled with cute and practical products recommended by real moms.

Frankley Idea Review

Have any of you heard of Frankley Idea? No? Well here is your chance to learn a little bit about this great new business offering an easy and fun way to purchase your everyday essentials. Such as Bras, panties, socks, undershirts and boxers. You can have your essentials shipped out just once or every four months. Which is about the time you need new of these type of items.  We are always purchasing new underwear and socks and swapping the old out for new, especially for the kids since they grow so quickly.

Frankley sent me an awesome bra to review, I love the comfort and print and I was very excited to be receiving this, as I will definitely need a new bra once I’m done nursing!

So how does this work you ask?

  • Select items to create your bundle of Frankley basics
  • Customize frequency in your cart (one-time ship or auto-ship every 4 months)
  • Change, delay, or cancel anytime by logging on to your account page
  • Don’t worry, we will email you a reminder before your next delivery is due

It’s pretty easy and makes buying pretty simple and convenient.

Heres a little about Frankley

From Founder and CEO Jenni Timony

The Frankley Brand My inspiration for the Frankley collection came from bra shopping. I hated having to search through 16 pages of results for “white push up bra’s” on a site. I just wanted just one chic, comfortable and perfectly fitting white push up bra!

So I took only the most popular styles, and created the Frankley collection of underwear essentials.

We don’t aspire to having hundreds of products on our site – just a select range of carefully chosen and well-made basics. All the items on this site are designed, tested and tested again by us. We focus on finding quality fabrics, a perfect fit and a little style, too!

Subscription Who has time to regularly shop for bra’s that wear out, whites that go grey and to replace outgrown undies for kids? Not to mention buying hosiery and socks?

You can order from us just once (if you’re afraid of commitment!), or sign up to have a delivery every four months. Having quality undies delivered to your home regularly is smart, convenient and time saving. Plus, it’s an affordable little luxury that you’ll look forward to!


Warm Regards, Jenni

I’m pretty excited about this new web page, the concept is awesome and I like that I can easily purchase some of the more boring shopping items online. I mean, really? To be honest, taking 3 kids out to go shopping for socks, undies and bras is NOT my favorite thing to do, it’s stressful especially when one child wants Tangled undies the other Batman, and me trying on bras? Yeah right! Not gonna happen.
