I’ve posted before about baby must haves and essentials, and talked about diaper bag supplies for babies, but what about when babies become toddlers?! Little different, right?!

No worries, I’ve rounded up everything I pack for a trip out with my toddler. All very handy!

Don’t worry, I’m an over packer, you can pick what you think would be helpful from the list. 😉

First, diapers, wipes, changing pad and extra change of clothes. Even if you toddler is potty training or has learned, these are super handy for emergencies. Believe me, I know. Also, a folding potty seat. Game changer. (This changing pad is so nice, and super wipeable/cleanable! )

Feeding supplies. Always snacks and water. I bring an extra bottle to refill our cups too (and use code Jessimarie15 on Swig bottles and mugs! 🙌) Having a bib, even if grown out of them at home, is super handy for keeping nice clothes tidy. I stash a fold up plate and silverware too, for when the eating situation is less than toddler friendly.

Also, these cups from Elk and Friends have solid lids that make packing snacks super easy too! 👌

This is where face wipes and wash clothes come in handy. And kid friendly sanitizer.

I always have safe sunscreen and bug spray. Plus Fight Bite is amazing for taking away bug bite and poison ivy itch!!

Bandaids and medicine are a must! These metal kits from Welly come loaded and are so handy. I buy the bandaid kit and med kit and swap half and half to put in places like the diaper bag, car, camper, etc. Their meds include stomach soother, fever relief, and allergy relief. And are rated for ages 2 and over. So handy!!

I like to pack a pouch of toys that the kids rarely see so that they are interesting. And soft headphones. So handy when they need to swipe my phone for entertainment.

A clip on fan for the stroller is helpful too!

And our Tubby Todd Dream Cream goes everywhere with us. Great for dry skin, rashes, etc and works for the whole fam. (This link saves you 10% automatically! 😉)

I also always add a mini CleanSmart spray. This guy disinfects surfaces with just a spray and is safe for the kiddos! CleanSmart and sanitizer both go in an easily accessible side pocket, not a pouch, for quick grabbing.

Our Lily Jade diaper bags are our favorite and their packing cases make great spots for all the things we need. I like to pack them by category. I even use one pouch for “mom stuff.” Think lip gloss, lotion, Tylenol, etc.

I also always add some Bumkins pouches. Handy to pack snacks or to stash things on the go. We’ve even filled one with shells and treasures on an adventure before. 🤣

Anything I’m forgetting? Always forgetting something. Hope this helps! 😉

Easter!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! We sure did here. We had a small family dinner at our house and then did some yard work. Very festive, I know. I thought I would share with you our Easter table!

Notice anything different? How about that table? Yes, I finally tried the Restore on it! It worked so well, I think I’m in love! It did not removed the weird patterned spot, so the table is still not perfect, and probably never will be. But, it is so much better! The Restore really does a great job on scratches and scuffs. Anyways, how about the Easter setting? Jeremy even helped to decorate some eggs! I blew out real eggs so that we can save them for next year!

Here is one of Jeremy and I:

Here are the three generations of women in our family who came:

What did you all do for the holiday? 🙂

Vintage Plates

June 14, 2011 at 6:42 pm (Home Changes and Additions) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

When I got my first apartment my mom and I found an entire set of unused, gorgeous black dishes for $40 at a resale shop.  I have lovingly used them ever since.  A couple of years ago, during a hurried move, a box broke open and almost all of the salad plates, bowls, and mugs were broken.  Fortunately, all of the dinner plates pulled through.  But, I have been on the hunt for some fun dishes to mix with the black plates ever since.

The other day at a thrift store I ran across a full set of adorable blue, vintage salad plates.  They were .49 each, so for about $4 I added these to my set:

Here are a few shots of a mock place setting, just to see how sweet they looked 🙂

The blue glasses are from a flea market and the black charcoal glasses were given to me by my grandfather and came from Germany.  The candlesticks are a mix of vintage and CB2, and my silverware is all new Oneida.  I really like how it all mixed together.  Although, these photos remind me how I can’t wait to refinish the dining table! What do you think?
