Our Big News! (And Chicago Baby Show Tickets Giveaway)

Thanks to MomTrends and the Chicago Baby Show for sponsoring this post.

New baby coming soon

Those that follow me on social media already heard the news but, in case you missed it, we announced a couple weeks ago that we are expecting a baby in January 2019! I figured I should officially announce it here :) We are so excited and I’m lucky I’m going to have two extra sets of hands to help with this baby (which will be a change from the challenge of having raised these two “almost” Irish twins who always seemed to be going in opposite directions when they were little!)

Since my boys are older I have nothing for babies anymore and, because we live in a tiny, two bedroom place, I’m on the hunt for baby products that do double duty and space saving items that really maximize what little space we do have. I’m also interested in learning about all the newest trends and tech that’s been developed since I was raising babies 10 years ago.

I am really looking forward to heading to the Chicago Baby Show later this summer to get ideas before I complete my baby registry and start shopping for my little one. I’m also excited to connect with other local, expectant parents!

The 2018 Chicago Baby Show, held on August 25 & 26, 2018, will once again be the largest show for new and expectant parents in the country. Now in its 2nd year, no other event provides a better experience for thousands of expectant and new families from the Chicago area seeking a family-friendly jamboree of top brands, great speakers and seminars, big giveaways, and lots of learning, support, bonding, and fun as you make your way into parenthood. 

2018 Chicago Baby Show

I am partnering with the Chicago Baby Show to give 10 tickets away! You can head here to claim the free tickets. If you go to that link and receive a message saying that “the promotional code you entered is not valid” then all FREE tickets have been used and you can go here to get 50% off tickets instead. (The normal ticket price is $30 per family (for 2 adults and up to 4 children) and $20 per individual.)

If you can’t make the show, or do not live nearby, don’t worry because I will be sharing my top finds from the show here on the blog! In the meantime make sure to grab your tickets while they last and leave a comment letting me know what baby items you consider necessities! I need to know what I should be adding to my wish list :)

  1. Congratulations! That is such exciting news. Now that your two boys are a little older, they’ll be looking out for their new little brother or sister. I think it’s going to be so amazing for them.

  2. That’s so interesting, I had no idea this kind of show existed. Are they helpful?

      I have never been to this baby show but I’ve been to a similar one for parents of kids (not specific to little ones) and I found lots of great resources and ideas! I really am looking forward to checking it out and seeing all of the new baby gear on the market.

  3. Congratulations! I had no idea that there were baby shows to be on the lookout for.

      Thanks so much, Amy! I can’t wait to find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I’d love a little girl but, at the same time, a boy would be nice as well since I have experience raising boys lol.
