Love It & Leave It

Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to introduce a new series, 'LOVE IT & LEAVE IT,' where first-time moms will be sharing one product or item they love (couldn't live without), and one they would leave behind. As my due date is a little less than 3 months away (wow), I thought this would be a fun and helpful series for all moms, and moms-to-be in the blogosphere! I'd like love to introduce you to my first guest, Natasha!

Hey yall! First of all, I want to say a big thank you to Brooke for allowing me to come over and post on her wonderful blog. My name is Natasha and I am the author of Hello! Happiness. I am a 20-something southern gal from Nashville, Tennessee. I am a wife, a new mom, and a girl who loves to entertain, exercise, cook, travel, and decorate.

My Husband and I...and we just celebrated our 1 year anniversary on June 11th

Our darling Caroline...she is almost 3 months old!

My favorite place...home sweet home

Moving on to why I am here...when Brooke contacted me about participating in her guest post series, I couldn't say no. As a new mom myself, I have definitely found my share of products I LOVE and products I could LEAVE behind. I hope this helps!

LOVE IT: The number one item I cannot live without are Aden + Anais muslin baby blankets. By no means is this something glamorous, but it is an essential at my house. They are soft, lightweight (perfect for spring and summer), and are my favorite blankets to swaddle our little peanut. Plus, they have adorable prints on them, but they don't scream BABY like some other blankets out there. I'm telling you now, run out and buy some of these...you won't regret it. You can buy them on their website or at Target!

LEAVE IT: Some may totally disagree with me, but one thing I could do without has been the wipe warmer. I registered for it because of course I was told to, but I have yet to use it and doubt I ever will. Not sure what the premise is behind the gadget because I am sure that it does help make the wipes toasty for the wee one's tiny bum, but to me it is something that is totally unnecessary and you can absolutely live without.

There are plenty of other products out there I could rave and/or rant about, but these are the two that stand out to me most! I am always featuring my favorites over at my blog so please feel free to stop by...again, thanks Brooke and I can't wait to read what other mommies are out there saying about their favorite and not-so-favorite items ;).
