Summer Adventures and a Road-trip with Miss S!

Pin It
This summer has been full of adventure and fun.  We took a giant road-trip to Colorado via the Grand Canyon and we have witnessed so many firsts with Miss S.  Here she is on her first trip to Malibu beach.  She loved it and even dipped her toes into the ocean.

 Here we are in Flagstaff.  It was early in the am and we were about to head up to the Grand Canyon.

We made it to the Grand Canyon.... Poopsie slept through most of it. :)  P.S. I have no idea who the guy in the photo is.....

She did amazing in the car....of course we had a ton of activities and such!

We visited the town of Bedrock.  This was a very special place as the Flintstones is our little song.  When S was placed with us I didn't know any nursery rhymes so I sang her jingles from TV shows.  Flintstones and Three's Company where big hits in the early days.

Yes - she is getting strong.  That is her under there and she made this little tent all by herself.  If you  notice the big pile of clothes on the chair and you look close you will see that they won't fit Miss S. yet.  I am big shop ahead kind of girl.  I love sale racks and coupon shopping. Plus, Grandpa and Grandma Honey just sent us a boatload of clothing.  I have sizes up to 2T for her.  Even though I think she will be wearing them as hand-me-downs.  More on that later........ Let's just say that for the past few months we have been prepping for more changes.  Good changes.

This Foster Mom loves the NEW Huggies Snug & Dry Plus Diapers and the wipes are cool too! ++ Free Samples

Pin It

{This is part of a sponsored campaign with Mamiverse, Huggies® and Costco.  All review opinions are mine and my hubbys.}

Plus Up Your Care - try Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers
and Huggies Natural Care® Plus Wipes, only at Costco.

Being a working Foster Mom having a good diaper that we can count on is super important and being able to buy them in bulk is even more important!  I really just don't have time for mini shopping trips.  Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers and Huggies Natural Care® Plus Wipes are exclusively available at Costco.  I have two different Costco stores near me and both are near other shops that I frequent...one reason I love them. I also love the bulk treats and formula you can get there.  I just need a bigger pantry!


When the test samples arrived they looked good on first inspection.  Before becoming a foster mom I hadn't changed a diaper in years and really didn't know much about diapers..... or baby poop.  8-Months later, I think I am an expert on poop, pee, wipes, diapers, diaper cream, diaper folding techniques and locations of good changing bathrooms across Los Angeles.

I first tested the wipes. I really liked the non-scented wipes and they worked really well.  Miss S. was clean quick!  The official name of them is.... Huggies Natural Care Plus.  I just look for the green label.  We are always on the go so we liked that they work with the Huggies brand wipe carrier (Clutch N Clean) that can hook onto almost any stroller or bag.  They come in refillable dispensers, or 1160 refill wipes that are perfect for home.  This is their simplest formula ever.  I like that because I use no dye...etc products for little Poopsie and for me and hubs.  Also my hands are super sensitive so I like that they are easy on me.  Diaper wipes are also Mommy Wipes in this house.  I use them to clean my messy craft hands.

 You can try some for FREE!

You must be a Costco member to get a sample and limit 1 sample per household.

The elastic across the back is pretty great.  She lasted through the night with no leaks!! Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers are extra absorbent for day and night protection....that's a plus exclusive to Costco!


 She also played in the park with no leaks or messes.  Thank You HUGGIES!!    Exclusive Huggies® products at Costco help you Plus Up your baby care~~~ just like we are!  It looks like Miss S. is about to loose her socks.

This is what I stink at..... lining up the sides.  I think it's because I try to change diapers too fast or in the dark.... or with my eyes half open. I liked that the diapers have a SnugFit waistband and Grip Tabs that make for a secure fit!


I I love the cute little faux stitching around the legs!

 Here is a little view of the leak guards....  
Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers come with the trusted Leak Lock® system!

Our review verdict..... Awesome Sauce.  Remember that Huggies® Snug & Dry Plus Diapers and Huggies Natural Care® Plus Wipes are only available at Costco.  You can sign up for some free test diapers and wipes.

Here is the scoop again...

Handmade 4th of July Dress for Miss S. from McCall's M6912

Pin It
Miss S's first 4th of July is just around the corner so like any new mom I wanted to get or make a cute little dress or something for her to wear to show off her USA spirit. Especially since we will be on our great road-trip adventure to the Grand Canyon and Colorado!


 McCalls M6912 - Baby Sewing Pattern


I found this fabric at Jo-Ann Fabrics.  I fell in love with the owls and Miss S's name is represented by Owls so that is pretty cool too.  I have a thing for "big-eyed" things and dolls so it was really no surprise when this ended up in our cart.

The pattern was very simple to make and pretty quick too.  It has no snaps, buttons or zippers so I think this pattern is perfect for a beginner.  I opted to add some heat set rhinestones and rick-rac trim.


The gems just add a little kick and sparkle.  They are easy to apply with the heat wand.

All finished and ready for Poopsie and our 4th of July celebrations!


She LOVES the bloomers.



I have already started on a second one..... this dress will be
for cousin Tuckers outer-space themed 2nd Birthday Party.
