  • This diaper bag that I posted about last week is back and now available for pre-order, get it N O W ladies!! I love it!! My favorite part is that the stroller hooks are included, which will make life so easy! I love that it is a backpack, and that it’s really pretty (because let’s get serious-that is also important). The pearl white, stone grey, latte, and black are all currently available for pre-order. YAY!! I have the large Monaco in pearl white!

  • We celebrated Mother’s Day with Tim’s family, and then I treated myself to a nap. I know those will be in short supply VERY soon so I’m enjoying them as much as I can! I can’t believe I’ll be a momma to a little someone in under four weeks!

I hope everyone had a wonderful momma’s day! 📷: @claireandbarrett

  • Ok so this diaper bag, let’s talk about it.

Granted, my baby is not here yet-BUT-I looked at a lot of diaper bags to find the perfect one. My friend Meghann recommended this one and I love it!

It’s the large Monaco diaper bag from @luli.bebe. It’s a backpack, has an additional shoulder strap to make it a crossbody, and comes with stroller hook straps to easily attach to stroller. Also, it’s just gorgeous! I did the pearl white and love it so much!

Of course, my luck, I just checked and several of the colors are sold out, but the pastel pink is in stock and so so pretty!
