Undercover Mama

You may have noticed that this is breastfeeding month. If you read many blogs, you probably have heard it mentioned.

My ears have perked each time it has come up because that’s right where I’m at. My little boy turned four months old today and we are about to reach the end of the days where his sole sustenance comes from me. That makes me a little bit sad.

But I know my breastfeeding days are not nearly over, and because I find myself nursing in restaurants, stores, parks, I have been looking for ways to make it easier on me and the baby.

When I was introduced to Undercover Mama, I knew I had found something that would work for me.



One of the things I despise about nursing in public is trying to juggle baby, cover, shirt, and bra all while trying desperately not to flash somebody. (I don’t care so much, but I know most of you don’t want to be flashed.) For the most part it goes well, but frequently I find the cover isn’t large enough to cover all of the important stuff – usually it’s my side and my belly that don’t get fully hidden. And, they’re not cute right now. Not cute at all.

But Undercover Mama solves that problem. The shirts are made just like tank tops, except in the place of straps they clip on to your bra. They slide on similar to the way convertible bra straps attach. Then when you pull down the bra to nurse, the shirt comes with it.

I use my Undercover Mama shirt all the time. I’ll use it when I’m no longer pregnant because it is the perfect layering tank. It’s super soft, extra long and wears well.

You can purchase the Undercover Mama shirt in four different colors for $20 each plus $5 shipping per shirt.

Or you can win one!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.

Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
