Help Pfizer Honor America’s Greatest School Nurse + Giveaway

 This post has been sponsored by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own. 

If you have grade school children, chances are you’ve gotten the dreaded phone call from the school nurse telling you that your little one is sick. It’s not a call we look forward to, but I’m grateful we have someone on our child’s side when they’re feeling down. I remember getting a phone call recently that Arianna was not well and was running a fever. I panicked because I was across town in the middle of an appointment, and had no idea how long it would take me to get to her. The nurse gently assured me that she would be OK and she would make sure to keep an eye on her fever and stay with her until I was able to pick her up. As a parent our first reaction is to always worry, but school nurses are there to not only comfort our children, but sometimes us as well! School nurses go underappreciated for all that they do. From tummy aches, to fevers and runny noses, they see it and do it all. That’s why Pfizer Pediatrics wants to honor them with a nationwide America's Greatest School Nurse contest!

Tween Room Reveal


Having a tween girl is interesting. One minute they want to be treated like a teenager, and the next they’re playing with My Little Pony, so you never really know who you’re going to get. It’s literally like living with someone with a split personality. Ok, maybe that’s a little far, but still – it ain’t easy.

When I started working on Arianna’s new room I wanted to make it a little more grown up for her, but still keep the playfulness in it. Instead of having her pick everything, we created mood boards together which gave me a good sense of what she was looking for.

Here are few of the inspirations she liked....

New Year, New Start


I’m baaaaack. I’ve missed you! Did you miss me? In case you did, I’d thought I’d fill you in on some big changes that have taken place over these last few weeks, and the reason I stepped away from Babblings for a bit. If you follow me on Instagram you might know already, but first and foremost, WE MOVED!

Why Gilmore Girls: 'A Year In The Life' Was A Big Disappointment

 **Warning: this post contains spoilers**

This past weekend was all about hunting down sales, but it was also the perfect opportunity to binge watch the Gilmore Girls revival, A Year In The Life. If you haven’t seen it yet – what are you waiting for?!! Get on it!!! I’ve been a fan of the show since its inception so needless to say, I was thrilled to hear they were coming out with a reboot. Sadly, my devotion to the show left me feeling underwhelmed with the new reboot.

Don’t get me wrong – there was plenty I DID like. The zippy dialogue was on point. The town’s people are as quirky and annoyingly lovable as we remember. It was great to see Luke and Lorelai still together as a couple, and I absolutely loved the first episode: Winter. My problem with the revival all stemmed from the 3 generations of Gilmore Girls, but mostly Rory.

Ah, Rory. I was SO disappointed in Rory.
