Haba Toys

For all the new mamas who are looking for fun and well-made toys for their babies, I recommend Haba Toys. As a new mom, I was concerned about all that I was hearing about 'unsafe' toys and lead content. I looked for toys that were natural wood and toys that were soft (since teething as a baby needs relief). Haba was one of the first I took a liking to. The two sites I went looking for natural toys was Moolka.com and Oompa.com. There is a wealth of colorful alternatives to check out in those two online stores. One of my favorites too was Pacifieronline.com, which is also a brick and mortar store based out of Minneapolis. There is everything from binkies to strollers to baby clothes up to toddler sizes in all the latest fashionable accessories and clothes for your little one. And if you love shopping, you'll definitely enjoy shopping for your little ones there!

10 Things About Me

Hello, thanks for stopping by my blog. Here are a few things about the author of this blog and a little 'bout her world:

1. I love to drive. It clears my head.
2. I love to drive with music on and (hopefully, weather permitting) windows down.
3. I am a vegetarian (but I do eat fish).
4. My family and I try to eat organic (healthier, less pesticides) and eat lots of grains, veggies and fruits. It's actually a great thing with my 3 year old who has never had a burger and shuns them and loves her broccoli!
5. I love making lists because I'd forget otherwise. (lost quite a few brain cells after my pregnancy)
6. I love indie, classical movies and comedy shows (love to laugh!)
7. I love alternative rock.
8. I'm a bit of a foodie, but after Emma, I have made more of an effort to cook all our meals and eat in.
9. Aside from dabbling in oil paints and water colors, I write poetry.
10. I love visiting local small boutiques in the city of Chicago, a lot of whom carry the sellers you see on Etsy.

Well, that's it for this post. I hope you've gleaned a little about me from this and I hope you have a great day;)
