GIVEAWAY/REVIEW~ jdbaby slippers

I’m so excited to share with you these deliciously adorable slippers from jdbaby. Now that the cooler weather has rolled in, and it’s only going to get colder my search began for kid friendly “fun” slippers to keep those sweet little toesies warm. Little one is always yanking off socks, so I knew if I wanted to keep anything on his feet, he had to LOVE them.

I came across jdbaby’s etsy shop and fell in love with her whimsical designs. I knew they would be perfect! What I loved most about jdbaby was they are handmade fleece slippers in a variety of unique designs from foxes, dragons, monkeys, duck feet to “red fish, blue fish”. Available in sizes for everyone babies to adults.

foxmultiI was stoked when Joan the owner of jdbaby sent a pair of fox slippers for little man. Anytime I get a package he is always diving in to see what he will find. As soon as he saw the fox slippers he squealed with excitement, immediately wanting to wear them. He was so excited when I put them on his little feet that he started running back and forth across the apartment (thank goodness for the slip proof soles). I literally had to bribe him with candy to sit still so I could snap a photo of him. I guess we can say he likes them. Haha.

Today we conquered!

It was a big day for little man and myself. He conquered going up the playscape at the park and down the slide all BY HIMSELF! And I conquered my fear by letting him go up alone without freaking out. Well… ok, I did panic a little… lol. But he did really well by himself, I am proud. This particular park has a smaller area on top of the playscape that is mostly closed in, suitable for small children (supervised of course!). He did try and give me a heart attack a few times by giving me that little grin and going towards the open space. I think he knows how to get a reaction from me ALREADY! Oh boy… ha ha

Mommie’s Time Out- City Chemist NYC

This week my time out was AHHH-mazing! I had the opportunity to visit City Chemist “Brooklyn’s Best of Beauty” located in Brooklyn Heights on the corner of  Montague and Henry Street.  I received a eyebrow shaping by Megan (which I highly recommend), and I left with a goody bag just for me! Of course I did pick up a few extra goodies I just could not resist! 😉

Thank Mommy Tips by Cole for the heads up!

I did receive services, however, my opinion is completely honest and based on my own experience.

Summer in the city!

This heat here in nyc has been viscous. I sometimes feel like I’m back in Louisiana with these 99 degree heat waves! We headed back to the park for a family BBQ and little man experienced his first time at the sprinkler park. He had a blast. I’m not sure if the other kids were too happy with him as he was a little water hog by not wanting to share his sprinkler. But I know he had fun and as you can see from the photos a few adults were enjoying the water sprinklers too. Lol We can’t wait to explore other sprinkler parks in the city!

This was McCarren Park in Williamsburg Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most iconic images when you think on NYC and today we decided to spend a little time in DUMBO. Baby boy had a blast taking a stroll along the water and goodness was it a beautiful day! We enjoyed running around on the grassy hills and chasing the birds. He absolutely LOVES feeding and chasing the birds.

Having a blast running around!

Mom what’s that??

We also came across an adorable shop called PowerHouse Arena. They not only carry a great selection of books and unique cards, but they house literary events and gallery exhibits. I may have even picked up a little something for the MR. for father’s day 😉
