As I type this, the world outside our dining room windows is swirling white. Winter storm #Juno has hit. There are drifts about 3 feet tall in our driveway, and a gigantic backhoe just went by pushing a pile of snow the size of an SUV. Thankfully, we haven't had any power outages, but I don't think we've been hit with the worst of the storm yet. Our friends who live down the block came over last night with their newborn to weather the storm with us-- we spent the night drinking wine and playing games, with our fake fire DVD playing on our tv, checking the accumulation every now and then. The homemade spaghetti sauce is made, and we have plans to make baked potato soup for dinner. I think we're pretty well prepared, even if we lose power, which hopefully doesn't happen.
Speaking of being well-prepared, check out this diaper bag.
(How was that for a transition? Eh?)
Seriously though, besides plenty of hot coffee running through my veins, this Elizabeth bag by Lily Jade is one of my top essentials for mommy-ing. There's not much that doesn't fit in this bag. On any given day, you'll find at least the following-- our Skiphop diaper changing kit, loaded with three diapers for Delia, and two for Si, a change of clothes for her, either my Happy Baby wrap or my Sakura Bloom ring sling, my nursing cover, two burp cloths, a toy truck or five for Silas, a random orange that Si tossed in last week, my wallet/purse, my keys, two pacifiers, a bottle of hand-sanitizer, and my Camelbak water bottle. With its many pockets, and the unique removable (and washable) Baby bag, it constantly impresses me how easy it is to fit all of that in AND keep it organized.
My go-to uniform of late is this-- a low-key sweatshirt, a gigantically cozy blanket scarf (pretty handy for disguising and covering up spit-up...) and this bag. Easy-peasy, comfy and warm.
I realize I've had a lot of sponsored posts and giveaways the past few weeks, but if I promise that I've got some non-sponsored content coming up (a post chock full of silly Silas sayings, some of my personal tips for recovering from C-sections, and a few of my favorite ways to wear this blanket scarf), can you put up with another giveaway? I hope so!
