Greatest Hits 2013 (and Taking Requests 2014)

Greatest Hits 2013 (and Taking Requests 2014)

The past couple of years on this blog I’ve designated the week of New Year’s as “Highlight Week.”  In addition to reflecting on last year’s goals and next year’s goals (that post will be up on Thursday…), it’s a chance to revisit posts that were particularly popular (that’s this post!)  For those of you that are relatively new Cragmama readers, here’s some goodies that you may have missed throughout the year.  And for those of you that have been reading for a while, it’ll be a stroll down memory lane!  Posts were selected based on initial visitors, long-term traffic, and…Read the rest of this entry →

Rainy Day Green Hours Need Rainy Day Gear!

Rainy Day Green Hours Need Rainy Day Gear!

What do you get after 2 solid days of torrential rains and frosty wind gusts?  A stir-crazy toddler and mama-to-be with a horrible case of cabin fever!  I sure am thankful for companies like STONZ and Ducksday that believe in providing top quality outerwear for kids, otherwise C would have been a cold, wet mess once the storms died down to a steady drizzle and we ventured out!   I was excited because we really did have the perfect conditions for testing all of our new gear – the wind and rain had died down enough to make it less…Read the rest of this entry →
