Spotted Stork, A Unique Baby Boutique

Spotted Stork is a locally owned baby boutique nestled in a cozy pink cottage on 1st Avenue North in Jacksonville Beach.  When owner Julie Wintz envisioned Spotted Stork, she kept several things in mind: she wanted to “offer distinctive and exclusive brands and unique, quality pieces that are not sold anywhere else in Jacksonville; provide a charming […]

Brown Baggin’ the Green Way

My very first email address began with treehugger; I created cards to pass out to my friends in high school in celebration of Earth Day, but I’m not the greenest mom on earth. In fact, I drive a beast of vehicle that will probably be banned if the EPA cracks down on emissions. But my […]

Locally owned and operated, Bambella Cookie Boutique specializes in customized hand-crafted cookies. Since owner Tara Littwin’s vision is to create little works of art for all occasions, she and her employees focus on making each order unique and special. When Jacksonville Moms Blog connected with Bambella Cookie Boutique, we immediately fell in love with their […]

Uniboob No More!

The Uniboob. Long ago, a woman was dressing for her usual morning run when her husband walked by, gave her a sideways glance and muttered “hmmm.” The wife immediately asked him what he was hmmming about. He shrugged his shoulders and made the comment that gave the sports bra a bad rap. “Honey, that bra […]

45 Days Until Black Friday!

Yes, I admit it. I am one of those crazy moms that are running the aisles of my favorite stores the day after Thanksgiving. I always thought those people were wackos until a few years ago, when I experienced my first Black Friday after we bought our house. We saved tons of money when we […]

Peek-a-Boo! They’re Watching You

Since I started teaching fitness classes with Jacksonville Stroller Strength, my daughter has begun mimicking my every workout move. The other day I heard her say something that sounded like “shldr ruls” and looked over only to find her rolling her shoulders backward just like I do during a warm up in class. A few […]

Trick-or-Treating: Mom’s Way!

You can almost smell the sugar in the air. Halloween is fast approaching and for most of us that brings to mind one thing: CANDY. Pretty soon parents all over the country intend to willingly allow their children to go door-to-door collecting as much candy as possible. It’s a child’s fantasy and a parents nightmare […]

Halloween in Jacksonville

There’s just something about October. The hope for cooler weather, the chance to switch out your summer wardrobe… maybe even put on some boots, fall festivals and pumpkin everything, and of course, the culmination of October, Halloween. Halloween is by far my most favorite time of year. The first thing I do in October is […]

Buddy Walking for a Cause

I used to volunteer my time at my Alma Matter, FSU, through a program called Best Buddies. This program pairs you with an individual with special needs, and you get the wonderful opportunity not only to make a great friend, but to share great moments at special outings and really expand your horizons. I enjoyed […]

The New Date Night

A couple of weeks ago, I traveled with my family to Chicago for a continuing education conference. Our schedule went something like this: I get up early, learn fun new tax and accounting information in the morning, attempt nap time with my tired and cranky 4 and 2.5 year old while my husband and I […]

How Smoothies Changed My Life

You know that mom who rises an hour before her children, gets everything prepped for the day and still has time for personal primping before her sweet angels awake at 8 AM, babbling happily until she’s ready to go get them? I am not that mom. My little guy is usually up by 6:30. And […]

A Different Focus

When I made the decision to leave my career to care full time for my daughter, I was not the least bit prepared for the intense and overwhelming sense of isolation that would follow. It was a difficult transition. If only I’d had Jacksonville Moms Blog! I desperately needed to feel connected. Fortunately, through blogging […]

Spooktacular Quick & Easy Halloween Decor

EEEEEKKKKK!!!! How is it possible we are already approaching the end of October!? This month has flown and Halloween is just 12 days away!!!! Halloween is by far my favorite holiday of the year (though you will come to find there really isn’t a Holiday that I don’t like). I usually will pull out all […]

New-to-You Swap Party!

I love hosting parties and planning get-togethers. Most of us moms get so wrapped up in the daily snot and spit-up that we forget to plan a night out with friends! And we need one ladies! So here is the best kept secret on hosting a little par-tay while also doing a little shopping all […]

The Procrastinator’s Guide to Halloween Costumes

I think most moms have pretty modest aspirations when it comes to Halloween. We just want our kids to sport the most adorable and/or creative costumes ever conceived without spending a lot of time or money. No big deal. And while I can’t exactly promise that level of perfection, I do have some fun ideas […]
