A Day at Dollywood with a Toddler

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.* I wouldn’t suggest going to a theme park with a toddler unless you are very prepared. And even still, something will likely go wrong. Luckily, we chose a theme park that has sections catered toward toddlers. This was a tremendous help! It was great to actually be able to ride rides with her. If you’re considering Dollywood and you’re bringing a toddler along, I hope this post helps prepare you. It’s always best to plan ahead but we all know how unpredictable toddlers are! You need…

Preparing for International Travel While Pregnant

I have been so lucky with my prenatal care experience this time around with Hattie. So lucky, that I’m now partnering with my birthing center, Baby+Co, to help all you mamas-to-be with preparing for international travel while pregnant! Baby+Co’s slogan says it all: A modern birth center, built on evidence, delivered with love. Baby+Co. When I was pregnant with Jude, I didn’t travel. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to, but at the time, it just wasn’t plausible with finances. This time, I’m finishing up a graduate degree which…

5 Must-Have Rolling Carry-ons for Summer

I’m getting ready for my trip to Barcelona and Lisbon in July and it occurred to me that since I’ll be in my third trimester, I’m probably not going to want to lug around a backpack like I usually do as a carry on.

Below are some of my favorite finds via Amazon! I wish I could get them…

How to Save Money So You Can Travel With Your Kids

I’ll be honest; I didn’t travel but one time in the first year of my son Jude’s life. I was the ultimate traveler before I had kids, but once he was born, I didn’t think I’d be able to afford travel anymore. But also, I was scared of traveling with him. I mean, what do you DO with all those diapers, extra clothes, car seat, stroller, etc, on a plane or in a small car? Babies need way too much stuff and I just didn’t feel like dealing with it. But when I finally…

6 Must-See Places in Ireland & Northern Ireland

  During my two and a half week stay in Ireland last summer I was happy to have found many wonderful destinations within Ireland and Northern Ireland. I put together this quick reference guide for anyone planning a trip and wondering where the must-see spots are. While they may be all over the place, they are TOTALLY worth the car rental (and yes, you must rent one and drive on the LEFT side of the road). Don’t worry, if I can manage driving the Ring of Kerry on the left side of the road – anyone can…
