    I love reading up on all the products you have a chance to review! Your blog is so nicely laid out that I find it’s so easy getting lost in here reading all about the adventures of you and A! I’m so jealous of your trip to NYC! I love that city, perhaps a girls trip is in order one of these days or even a mommy/tot trip?!! Looking forward to seeing you both soon!

    I love the reviews as money is tight and it is always so helpful to have a good idea about products I am thinking of buying. It gives me a feeling of being a smart shopper.
