The other day while mindlessly cruising the interwebs and social media, I came across a post somebody had liked and found it rung very true for me and my family in regards to holiday shopping. The person posted that they were pretty sure there would be no Christmas and no Christmas presents without Amazon Prime. I could not agree more.

I had another baby!!! More details on that coming soon. We are all doing well and are back home now. I don’t mean to pat myself on the back but, I am kinda proud that I am even writing this right now. I totally thought I wouldn’t have time to even think between juggling a toddler and a newborn.
