My first diaper bag was covered in blue plaid and cute little elephants. It was OK at the time, but by the time I had baby #2, I realized that I wanted the my bag to reflect my taste and not my current state of parenthood.
I have a new bag now. It’s a Rooster Diaper Bag by 2 Red Hens in the Peacock Mum print, and I love it. In fact, I more than love it. If I could find a way to be this bag, I would do it.

I’ve officially joined the gym…and I’m actually going! But lately I’ve really been struggling with what to wear when I work out. Should be simple, right? Well…not exactly.
