Every other Monday I will be featuring an awesome recipe, blogger, and product. Since I am a mommy, wifey, and blogger these will be quick and easy recipes, relateable bloggers, and helpful & trendy products – all “must have’s” in my life!

Here’s this week’s must have’s! Enjoy!

This week’s recipe is Parmesan Herb Crusted Salmon from Add A Pinch.

This is one of those meals that would be sure to impress others who saw and/or ate it, but in reality it is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made. We eat a lot of salmon in this house and this is a recipe I go back to time and time again. It is just so, so delicious. And I don’t know about you, but fish just tastes better on a summer night. We paired it with some white wine and roasted asparagus, yum!

This week’s blogger is Sarabeth McElhaney of The February Fox

Sarabeth and I connected months ago and her blog and Instagram page are truly one of those that I love to follow. Her pictures are bright and beautiful. She’s just gorgeous. And her blog is absolutely fabulous. Personally, my favorite section is the travel section. Sarabeth and her family do lots of traveling, but not just typical vacations, I’m talking bucket list type stuff – Stonehenge, Warner Bros. Studios Harry Potter tour (yes, I just compared that to Stonehenge!), Loch Ness, and St. Andrews Golf Course, just a name a few of my favorites! If traveling isn’t your thing Sarabeth also blogs about motherhood, party planning, and life in general.

This week’s product is Crib Rail Covers.

Before you roll your eyes at how absolutely boring this week’s product sounds, just read…especially if you’re an expectant mama (registry idea, yay!) or mama to a teething (or soon-to-be teething) little one.

My husband and I literally love this so much that he’s the one that suggested this product for this week’s Must Have Monday’s. There’s a few reasons why this is such a great product!  Our first and foremost reason for purchasing this was because our daughter had begun teething and was chewing on the crib railing. Call me a bad mom, but I didn’t think that it was that bad at first (it’s not like we let her do it for hours on end!) That was until one day I picked her and she had paint chips in her mouth!!!! Yikes! Secondly, and, just as important, when she was teething she was also becoming mobile, and quick! She would often bump her head trying to stand and look over the crib railing. The padding of the crib rail cover served as a cushion. Lastly, with those two things taken care of my husband and I were comfortable leaving her in the crib for a bit in the morning to play. We don’t want her to become used to getting picked up the second she wakes up in the morning. We were doing that, however, before we put the crib rail cover on solely because her crib wasn’t exactly safe anymore.

Our little one always come to the front railing so we only needed a cover for that part which you can buy here. If you also need the side railing crib cover you can buy that here.
