For the one who gives you everything, give them the gift of JORD

Last weekend my husband and I had our wedding anniversary. We have been married seven years! Time sure does fly when you are having fun.

My husband and I are very fortunate to have been given the gift of alone time last weekend. My in-laws generously agreed to babysit so we could take a road trip all alone, just the two of us, no kids. Glorious!

Of course, we love our children and we missed them, but spending time with your partner after children is so important. Giving them the gift of your time is one of the most generous gifts that can be given. There are so many distractions in life after kids. It is so easy to get wrapped up in your little people and forget about one another. I am guilty of this, so is my husband. Becoming cognizant of our time together had been one of the best attributes of our marriage.

On our way to drop the kids off at Grandma and Grandpa’s house I asked my husband if we could stop by our mailbox. Inside, there was a surprise for him! I had ordered him the Conway watch from JORD. This watch is absolutely gorgeous. He was ecstatic when he pulled it from the box. All of the watches from JORD are Wood watches and his first comment was how wonderful the real wood smelled. Next, he was thrilled with the blue face of the watch. This made me especially happy because I know blue is his favorite color and I made sure to find one he would love.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by JORD. I was given a free watch in exchange for this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

Along with the beauty, the functionality of the watch is amazing. He was so excited he asked me to set the watch so he could show his parents and it was easy to do so. One click out and twist to set the time, pull the top button and he was set! The watch is also equipped with a guide to help you easily set the time.

The Conway also features a 3-dial face with a sapphire glass and luminescent hands. The beautiful wood is also splash resistant, which is great for frequent hand washing.
I could tell my husband was so proud of his new watch. His parents loved it and he received so many compliments over the weekend. He wears it with pride every day. I know he loves to show it off and tells me he’s showered with compliments every day. If you’re searching for a one-of-kind gift for the most important person in your life, consider the gift of JORD.

Even better, enter to win $100.00 toward your purchase! Every person who enters will be given a $25.00 credit toward a watch after the winner has been drawn. Either way, you win!

What Life is Like With Your Second Child

Recently, our family took a road trip to San Diego for our anniversary. While we were there we had the opportunity to eat at the restaurant where we had our reception. It was an amazing evening and we brought our two boys with us. When we arrived they sat us next to another family with a baby. Shortly after our arrival another family with a baby was seated next to us. 

In both families the baby was a first born, here’s how I could tell…

Highchair covers…did you know this was a thing!? Well, I didn’t and guess whose baby didn’t have one? Ours. Because, well he’s baby #2…

Diaper bags, ha. With my first the diaper bag lasted a few months and was just changed in for a larger purse. My current “diaper bag”, my purse, was left in our car.

Baby food. Baby food is just about the nastiest thing on earth. We subjected our poor first born to this and his palate is so bland. He still doesn’t want to explore new foods at age 5. With our 2nd, I would make food or he just eats what were having. He had French fries that night. 

Socks AND shoes. First, let me clarify we live in warm weather socks and shoes are not a necessity. Same for San Diego. It was a warm night and our son couldn’t walk yet so they’re really just an accessory. Both of those babies were wearing them. 

Baby talk.  I’m not talking about talking to your baby. I’m talking about the adults talking about the baby. This was their conversation. Ours? Not so much, honestly it probably leaned more toward something about what we were going to do back at the hotel, if you know what I mean…

Noise levels.  Any noise made by those babies was instantly shushed, checked on or something was altered to make them happy. Let’s just say ours wasn’t so quiet and was mostly due to dad playing with him. 

The first child. Oh yes, our older one was there too. He’s been dining with us since infancy and as long as he’s coloring, he is happy. He ate his dinner without complaint and played with his little brother. 

When you have a second child, things are just a little different. When my first born was three months old, we went to a wedding and I wouldn’t let anyone hold him. I was just like these other mothers. If you see me at a wedding with my baby now, please come hold him. How were things different for you and your second, third, fourth child and beyond?

With Beyonce’s recent baby announcement, do you think she’s ready for baby number 2&3?!
