Gourmet Gift Baskets Review & Giveaway!

Thursday, April 28, 2011

My goodness Easter flew by so quickly! I was lucky enough to get to review a Classic Easter Bunny Basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets in time for Easter. I got it in the mail super quick- it just happened that a few days later my water broke and  didnt really have any time to enjoy it until now. It is so cute and pretty perfect. Its not too big and not too small. Plus the bunny that was inside is in the cute side as well.
Here's what was inside:
Super cute Easter bunny
Gourmet Jelly Beans
A chocolate rabbit (an Easter basket standard!)
M&Ms and 
some blue Peeps.

My husband and I were pretty pleased with everything inside- though neither of us are fans of Peeps. I think were the only two people in the world who arent fans.. not even of the chocolate covered ones. My favorite was definitely the Dots. I love me some Dots!

Over all I was very pleased with the basket. It had just enough stuff inside and it wasnt all too too Easter'y. Which I think is good for most people since not everyone loves Easter candy specifically. Now that I know about them I think I will definitely be using them in the future. Gourmet Gift Baskets have a T O N of different baskets for everyone. I like that they have baskets that offer fruit and organic produce. They also have military baskets to send overseas to our awesome guys and gals over there. I will totally be using them in the future for all my far away gift needs. :)

Jack: Week Two

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

20110425-DSC_1936 copy
What Ive learned this week:
  • I can do this!
  • Jack has T H E cutest cough ever. Like seriously.. its adorable.
  • I am THAT mom that opts for the photo of her son peeing on himself during a photo shoot rather than help him not get it in his mouth. Poor guy. Oh well. Its one of my favorites of him. Is that sad?
  • Cluster feeding is no fun.
  • The boobie shield is probably like the best thing ever. Its totally helping him latch which makes me a happy mama.
  • Dad is becoming an expert in the ways of swaddling.
  • I love the way dad looks at you.. and me for that matter.
  • I am still growing more in love with Neil as the days go on. Strange youre supposed to fall more in love with you baby as days go on. Im ok being in love with both of them. They are the absolute best things in the world and I seriously cannot imagine my life without either one of them.
  • I like Neil being at home, not at work.
  • Jack is the model Ive been waiting for. Ive done so much with him already and I cant wait for more. I sure hope he doesnt hate me.. or the camera when he's older.
  • His breastfeeding poops arent as bad as I anticipated they were going to be. Neil makes it to be a lot worse than it is though.
  • His little coos are the sweetest thing.

Also I finally got around to posting some more photos I have taken of him since he arrived. Go to my photography website to see them!

  • hospital food is not that good.
  • late nights arent that bad.
  • jaundice is no fun.
  • cutting off penis' is no fun.
  • feeling helpless is no fun.
  • stringy poop is really strange.
  • he props himself up in the cutest way.
  • Jack has awesome pee range. All over the sheets, over his head. Twice.
  • I dont want him to grow. I like him being 5 lbs.
  • youre never truly prepared for a new being coming into your life.
  • after 4 nights in a hospital I really love my bed.
