Let's Swap Ads Again in March!

For the month of February we did an Ad Swap and it worked so well that I am going to continue to do so until it doesn't work for us anymore!

Don't know what an Ad Swap is? Basically instead of paying to put your ad on a blog, we would just swap Ads free of charge, so your Ad would go on the side of my blog and mine would go on the side of yours! As a single Mama, it's hard for me to justify paying to promote my blog right now and I find it hard to ask someone else to pay to be on mine. So I mean really, what better way to do it than for free by doing a Swap?

So what do you think?  I've already got a couple of swaps going but would love to do a few more! So if you are interested or have any questions, please shoot me an email at and we can figure it all out!

Our Quick Trip to Reno

After Preschool on Friday, we headed up to Reno with the fam for a little overnighter to see the rest of the fam. We went to my brother's restaurant Pie-Face Pizza Co. and had an awesome late little lunch and then we went over to his house to hang for the rest of the evening.

That evening Roweyn started acting super fussy and next thing I know she's puking down my shirt. Poor girl caught some sort of flu bug! We spent the rest of the time there dealing with her puke sessions & then headed back to the hotel for the night where I woke up on a few different occasions to her being sick. I felt so bad!

In the morning though she was acting much better, was able to hold down water and over all just seemed to feel better. So we met up with my brother & his girlfriend for breakfast where Rowe snacked & did fine keeping everything down! We were very happy about this since we decided we were going to hit up the Nevada Discovery Museum for kids!

It was nearing nap time, but Roweyn had a blast with their big water play area, indoor playground for toddlers, running under the giant tire as well as the other areas they had.

She climbed up on the "horse" and inside the airplane too!

Later we headed over to my other brothers house for dinner with his family. Roweyn had so much fun playing with her cousin! After dinner we headed back home as planned. It was definitely an interesting trip and hopefully next time no one will get sick!

Sadly I woke up early the next morning sick as well! And later I found out my brother & his girlfriend were sick too! Whatever Rowe had it spread fast to us but luckily it was over in about 12 - 24 hours.

Roweyn's Ramblings Wk. 54

Tiny Dancer

Our Valentine's outfits for our early Valentine's dinner with the fam. Also Roweyn playing in a basket of dried black beans at dinner. Mostly because she hardly ever sits still long enough when we're out to eat.

My outfit for work Monday. Roweyn at her first Ballet class on Valentine's Day. She was a little shy so I danced with her.

Eating her Valentine's sucker she got from a friend while popping bubbles. Past out at nap time.

Loving her new rocking horse I thrifted for $15! Our awesome photo booth strips from our favorite photographers Lemaire Photography.

Our Lovely February Sponsors!

So in case you haven't noticed our lovely sponsors over there to the right for the month of February I decided to do an Ad Swap and turns out, it was a great idea! 

So please take a look at all our lovely sponsors!

My Little Mustache

Hi I am Jess and I live in the DC area with my nerdy/worship leader husband Scott and our adorable son Judah who sometimes wears a mustache. I love spending time with my son, taking ridiculous pictures of him, thrifting, drinking coffee and of course crocheting for my business My Charming Colors.  Stop on by, I love making and meeting new friends.

Pacific Northwest born and raised, photographing my way through the day till bed time, doing my best to raise three little ladies with teenager tendencies. All the while, studying to be a doula and navigating this new life as wife to my damn hot husband. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? Here you will find the running monologue of the misadventures that are our life.


Marcella, Single mama soon to be wifed up, 2 year old daughter Pella aka PEEJ. Blogging about What life throws at you, the good and the bad, neato baby stuff, and a little bit of everything else in between.

Hi! I'm Jacqueline and On this blog I talk about Motherhood, handmade shops, crafts and even more about Crochet. Enjoy yourself while you are here and tell me about it.


Hi Everyone! I'm Darlene- mamma to 4 year old Jasper (and a baby girl due in April!) and newlywed to Drew. We are currently living and loving in the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado! I blog about everything I'm passionate about, my family, the outdoors, traveling the world, raising my son bilingual (Swedish and English), going organic,fashion, SHOES, and my biggest passion of all- being a mamma.  I'd love to have you stop by and say hi!  


Shelley and Danny Lemaire are a husband and wife photography team, Danny takes the photos, Shelley edits them and what an amazing team they make! We had the pleasure of working with them back in September (You can see all Family Photos throughout our October & November posts, as well as the photos in our banner & buttons) and I can't wait to work with them again soon! Here is a little tid bit about their blog.
Our blog is less of a "Photography Blog" and more of a "A Little Bit Of Everything We're Into" blog. It will be MOSTLY Photography, but we will also be posting our videos, How-To's, DIY's, Custom Editing, Etsy Shop, and Blogs about our family and home. It's a central hub for you to see what we're into and what we're up to.


After the birth of her daughter in 2011, Lauren turned to the Internet to find out how to meet fellow moms. She was disappointed at the lack of resources for area mothers and didn’t have the time to comb through newspaper event listings and corporate websites.

The Reno-Sparks Mom is here to fill that void. With a easy to read event listing with events that matter to Moms, a comprehensive list of local resources and inspiration from a creative blog, the Reno-Sparks Mom is your source for all things motherhood in Northern Nevada.
Come back daily as we highlight the local events and inspiration that matter to you, the Reno Sparks Mom.
Lauren, author of this website formerly known as LaureNspired, created this blog as a creative outlet and a way to keep in touch with family across the country in 2008.  Since then it has followed their little family from struggling newlyweds, to first time homebuyers, to first time parents.
Reno and Sparks are both beautiful cities in Northern Nevada, nestled in the hills (and desert) below the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Roweyn's 2 Year Check Up

So on Friday, Roweyn had her 2 year check up (a month late). We waited 45 minutes before we even went back into a room even though we were the first appointment after lunch, but we always seem to have to wait, no matter what. We finally went back and first thing they did was weigh and measure Roweyn. She was a little apprehensive since she remembers her appointments from when she had a UTI but over all she did great!

While we waiting Roweyn had a blast sitting in the Drs chair drawing on paper.

We saw an intern first who was getting more hours in to become a Nurse Practitioner. She asked me a bunch of random questions about Roweyn and the family and then got all worried when she saw Roweyn's weight since she is so much smaller than the average 2 year old but having gone over this since Day 1 with Roweyn, I wasn't too worried. She then proceeded to push me about vaccinations in which I just nodded and said okay and that I'd think about them. Roweyn still hasn't had any vaccines and at this point I don't plan on her getting any, any time soon. I know everyone has their own opinion on them and that's fine but this is my choice for her and I'm happy with it.

After the intern was done, Roweyn's Dr popped in for less than 5 minutes to chat. He said there are no worries with Roweyn's weight, his words and I quote, "She's tiny, we've already established that, she's just like you so no big deal!" 

So here are her 2 Year Weight and Height Stats!

We don't have to go back in until it's time for her 3 Year Check. Crazy to think that we're at that point now where they only need to see her once a year now! My little girl is growing up!

She pulled the pillow & blanket out of the hall closet, laid down on the floor and proceeded to snore and told me she was taking a nap! Climbing and going down the slide at preschool making super cute faces!

Going down another slide and asking for me to hold her hand while she goes down. Drawing in her Cloth Diaper at her 2 year well check after Preschool.

Finger painting is so much fun! After finger painting she did water play in the sink for over 30 minutes!
