I'm not a big drinker, by any stretch of the imagination. Even when I'm not pregnant I maybe order a cocktail once every six months or so and enjoy maybe one glass of wine a month. Alcohol makes me incredibly…
Depending on how long you’ve been reading this blog, or if you follow me on Instagram, then you likely know that I have a huge sweet tooth. Life is short, I say, eat dessert! And, since Valentine’s Day is next week, treat those you love to dessert as well!
My recommendation? Treat your sweetie â€“ or ask that your sweetie treat you â€“ to a Cookies by Design Cookie Gift Basket! Cookies by Design is the original cookie bouquet company and they’ve recently begun a partnership with Build-a-Bear Workshop so some of their cookie baskets also feature the iconic Build-a-Bear teddy bears!
Cookies by Design was kind enough to send me a cookie basket and it was seriously one of the nicest things to ever show up at my house. First of all, the baskets get hand-delivered and the delivery man was so nice. Second, it was a basket of cookies… for me! Third, they can customize the cookies with either text or photos, so one of my cookies had the name of this website on it!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I’ve shared gifts for couples, gifts for her and gifts for him, but today I thought I’d do something a little different and share a round-up of 20 love and romance books for married couples.
Honestly, my husband and I don’t have the same taste in reading material â€“ not even close â€“ but I feel like I could get us a book that focused on “us” that we could read before bed occasionally and it would go over OK. I mean, typically we fall asleep to our Netflix show of the week, so reading something together might be a nice change and it would also give us a chance to think about ourselves for a moment, which will be especially important as baby #2 will be here before we know it! I am especially interested in Our Q&A A Day – I love this line of question and answer books and filling one out with my husband over the years would be fun!
If you’re looking for more of an “us” book this Valentine’s Day, be sure to check out the ones in this list!

You probably all know by now that I have a huge sweet tooth, so I was stoked to be given the opportunity to try out Candy Club, a subscription box for candy lovers. Seriously – what could be better?
With a subscription to Candy Club, the recipient will receive three surprisingly large containers of candy each month â€“ that’s up to three pounds of candy! Sometimes, as was the case with my box, they might even throw in a surprise fourth candy. Yum!
Does that look delicious or what? My husband and I may have had a candy feast last night!
