Most of the songs stay pretty true to the original version, which I personally prefer. I love several of the tracks and I like them all. Crazy love is one of only a handful of albums I enjoy listening to all the way through, and it's been on repeat in my van since it arrived. My favorite tracks are Crazy Love, Baby, At This Moment, and Stardust. I highly recommend this album, and if you're interested, you can purchase it here.

Have you noticed that the less a toy does, the more a child imagines and explores as she plays with it? Besides the general annoyance of loud toys, I really do think Sweetpea gets more out of the ones that do less. That's why I was really excited when Karen Clark of Story Time Felts sent me a sample of their Girl Dress Me Bear to review. As a huge fan of paper dolls and fashion plates growing up, I was so excited to introduce the Dress Me Bear to Sweetpea. She loves it just as much as I'd hoped she would!
The Dress Me Bear comes with 20 pieces of clothing and four weather scenes for the window. So far while playing with Sweetpea and her Story Time Felt we have worked on our colors, matching colors of various clothing items, placement of clothes in the correct location, and the appropriate clothes for different types of weather. In addition, the open ended nature of this toy allows her to use her imagination to create stories and practice her every growing vocabulary.
Prices are very reasonable (there are many options available for under $30) and this is a toy that can really grow with your child for many years. It's also something we will likely take with us on trips to keep Sweetpea occupied - the felt itself keeps her occupied for long spans of time, and flipping it over provides her the perfect surface for playing with coloring books or "reading" her books in the car.
Karen was nice enough to offer a $25 gift certificate for one lucky reader - just visit the Story Time Felts site and let me know your favorite product, or a suggestion if you have one and don't see it featured on the site. I'll draw determine a winner using Random.org on June 14th - make sure I have a way to contact you if you win!

*Spread the word about this giveaway on Twitter and leave the link to your tweet
*Stumble this giveaway and leave a comment letting me know your user id
*Write a blog post about this giveaway and leave me the link
Thanks again to Karen for sharing her great products with us - good luck, I hope you win!

During my organizing research, I came across the Fashion Flip purse by Purse N All Expressions. How exciting to find a trendy multitasking purse that adapts with the seasons and never needs changed out! (just purged occasionally...I'm working on getting better at that!)
The Fashion Flip is actually 5 handbags in one, though there are 2 main components - a base and a cover. The base is a basic solid color zippered bag with a removable strap. The cover is a reversible bucket type bag that slides over your base for added storage and flair!
Here are the 5 looks you can accomplish from this single bag:
- wear the base alone for an understated look
- add a flip cover to the base
- reverse the flip cover for a totally different look
- use the flip cover alone as a casual tote
- reverse the flip for a totally different casual look

Medela’s cami features a bra shelf that separates completely from the outer layer. There is an added layer of material between the shelf and outer layer, providing added support and a nice smoothing effect. I found the Medela cami to be the most supportive and most comfortable of the shelf style nursing camis that I’ve tried. If you find you need a little added support, I would recommend wearing a nursing sleep bra underneath – it worked for me when I was nursing exclusively. (I was a 38F when I was nursing exclusively – now that my daughter is older and not drinking as much milk, I’m back to a 36DD. I found this cami provided plenty of support at my current size.)
This shelf design is particularly well suited for pumping, and was designed specifically to work with the Medela Freestyle for completely hands free capability. As a mother that worked and traveled some while I was nursing, this is an especially nice feature. I like that this cami is well suited for both nursing and pumping, so you don’t have to think about what kind of feeding you’ll be doing on a particular day while getting dressed.
I would definitely recommend this product – for its comfort, style and functionality!
