You know how they say you’re the best parent before you are one!? Well here is a perfect instance. I spent some time living in St. Croix, Virgin Islands when I was younger and I was given the nickname of “Topless” from all the local Cruzan women. At the age of 5, this was a totally acceptable, dare I even say, cute nickname. So growing up I always looked at those kids on the beach all covered up and thought, “whats the point?” They’re at the beach, let them be naked and play. Plus all those rash guard style swimsuits were NOT cute. Well then I entered motherhood and became one of those over protective, slightly neurotic moms. At a few months old, my daughter, got her first rosy red cheeks from being in the sun a few minutes longer than she should have and I freaked! My poor baby! That is when I realized I needed to be extra cautious with her delicate skin. Living in Florida, I had plenty of cute bathing suits that had been gifted to our daughter but nothing  seemed suitable. That’s about the time my love of SwimZip began. We started ISR (Infant self rescue) swim lessons at age 6 months and I knew I needed something safe for her to wear. We bought our first SwimZip bathing suit and its been a love affair ever since! Not only were the suits EXTREMELY ADORABLE but they also were SO practical and SUN SAFE. I mean, seriously! Any mother of a 6 month old knows that getting your child dressed is like the worst experience ever for them. You’d think I was pinching her with every limb I tried to remove to from that article of clothing. Well try removing a wet, sopping bathing suit after a challenging swim lesson. Another win for SwimZip, with one swift zip up or down the suit is ON/OFF! You’d almost think a mom herself designed them ;). My husband and I both have our SwimZips as well so I guess you could say its a family affair! I have been so fortunate to form a friendship with Betsy (the owner of SwimZip), even if it has just been via the web! She makes an amazing product and I’m proud to support her in her mission to help keep your entire family sun safe! They are also celebrating their ONE year anniversary since appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank, so go on over and check them out! You won’t regret it. Summer will be here before you know it (or at least I’m sure a lot of you are praying it will be) so be ready and gear up!

  • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
  • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
  • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
  • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
  • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
