Elf On A Shelf: Current Addiction

Posted by Lily Kay at 12:08 AM 0 comments
How did I not know about Elf on a Shelf before this holiday season? How did I miss out on such a cute tradition? I have no clue how I had never heard of this but now that I have, its sort of become a Pinterest fueled addition. I confess, I sit on Pinterest looking at others peoples cleverly staged Elf locations wishing I had known about this before. Next holiday season I am so buying myself this little guy. I am so adopting an Elf, registering him online and placing him on way more than just a shelf. Are you like me and never heard of Elf On A Shelf? Here is some handy information.

In the meantime enjoy my favorite Elf On A Shelf pictures that I got from....yes, Pinterest.

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Infant in Your Life

Posted by Lily Kay at 11:10 PM 0 comments
I know Christmas is right around the corner and I also know that like myself, many of you still need to do your last minute shopping. Here are my favorite gifts for the infant in your life that you need to shop for. I think the little ones are the easiest as all you need is a simple yet cute item. Popular on my list are the last two items below that capture babys' first holiday.

Trumpette Socks: I simply cannot get enough of these adorable socks that come in the most drool worth packaging. They make already cute baby feet simply irresistible. They have boy themed, girl themed and neutral boxes of socks. Look for some at great prices on Amazon. Or checkout your local Target for Trumpettes more moderately priced line called TrumpetteToo...trust me they are equally just as cute.


Skip Hop Hug and Hide: This super cutesy owl squeaks, crinkles, rattes, reveals a baby own inside, has over 10 different activities and 2 removable teethers. Whew! Not into owls? The Hug and Hide also comes in the form of a puppy, bear, monkey and lamb. My little one is getting the owl this Christmas. You can find this on Amazon or the Buy Buy Baby website. You also could purchase it directly from the Skip Hop website by clicking here.

Holiday Frame: If the infant you are buying for is really little and you want to give something a little bit more on the "memory lane" side, you can give a baby's first Christmas type of frame. Its a sweet way to capture and store your little ones or someone else's' first holiday photo. You can get the frame above from PersonalizationMall by clicking here.


Pearhead Baby Hanging Keepsake: My personal favorite is this do it yourself Christmas ornament that takes your little ones handprint.This really is a crowd pleaser here. Who wouldn't want to pull this out of their ornament storage container each year to hang on the tree? I am getting this for my little one and all my nephews. You can purchase this ornament via Amazon by clicking here.

What are you buying for the infant on your Christmas list?

Its Christmas Time Baby: Photo Shoot Ideas

Posted by Lily Kay at 10:05 PM 2 comments
 Christmas will be here before you know it. I am just loving browsing for holiday photo shoot ideas for little ones. Wanted to share them with you all. Enjoy and beware this is one huge dose of cuteness overload.


 Ok i'm sorry but this photo is just way to cute, stick a bottle of milk in their somewhere and voila.







I have been seeing a string of (pun intended) holiday baby photos with the babies chewing on lights that appear to be turned on. As cute as it was, I feel very uncomfortable seeing a baby eating lit up lights with string wrapped all around them. I thought this picture as a much safer and equally as cute way to showcase your little one with sparkly holiday lights.


Here is too chubby babies, Santa hats, the colors red and green and mommies everywhere.

All photos courtesy of Pinterest, my obsession.

Posted by Lily Kay at 8:20 PM 4 comments
Attention mommies with little ones who still wear onsies...Its time for the much requested Onsie Exchange. I have been saying I was going to do this for a while but never had a chance to roll it out and get it going. Well now is the time.

What is a Onsie Exchange?

You will be partnered up with another reader of MrsMommyTalk and then you two will send each other a onsie for your little one. I will ensure that when you receive your partner you know the gender, age and size of their little one as well as the name. You get to be super creative here, you can send a cute Carters onsie, a onsie you created yourself or something off of Etsy. Its all up to you. Have fun with it though and try to be creative.



So here is all the details and what you need to do:


  • Its open to any mommy who wants to participate. If you are in a country other than the US or Canada, send me an email so we can work something out for you. I really want to be their for all my readers, regardless of location.
  • If you wish to participate please leave a comment below stating what type of onsies are your favorite ( i.e. long sleeves, Carters, blue, customized, favorite animal/character etc) AND send me an email asking me to please enter you into the exchange. You can email me by clicking here.
  • You have until December 12th to ask to participate. You will have until December 20th to mail out your exchange partners onsie.
