Baby Cubby Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, I travelled (ALL BY MYSELF!) to St. Louis for a Babylock convention (more on that later).  I only took a carry-on suitcase and my regular purse, thinking I could just hold my books, and snacks while everything that I needed/wanted to use on the plane would fit in my purse.  Turns out, not such a good idea. Idea fail. X  
I like to keep my purses on the smaller side, but found that while my shoulder thanks me on a day-to-day basis, it did NOT work for my traveling self. Both the plane ride there and back, I wished I had something bigger, but not as big as my carry-on suitcase, you know, that perfect Goldie Locks middle size. Imagine my pleased amusement when I returned to find an email from The Baby Cubby people.  Initially, I thought nothing of it, since I no longer have a baby (boo hoo!), thus I no longer carry a diaper bag, but as I was looking through their bags, I thought, these don't even LOOK like diaper bags! I stumbled upon this one, the Ju Ju Be, and knew I needed it. Black and white with pockets all over.
With about a million kajillion pockets and compartments, there's a place for everything.  So.  It came in the mail, and JUST before our family reunion to CA (more on THAT later, too). I was so excited to give it a legit test.  We had two flights to get there and I brought this stuffed full of plane treats, books, you name it, it was in there to get us through.  Turns out: It was THE perfect size.  It fit right under the seat in front of me, so I didn't have to store it in the overhead compartments, and it held everything I wanted at my fingertips.
But, Baby Cubby's awesomeness doesn't stop at bags (seriously, there are some cuter than most purses out there). They have toys:
the most beautiful baby gear (almost beautiful enough to consider having another baby...maybe grandkids? ;),

and even more beautiful-ness.

So! I am giving away a $50 gift certificate to one of you lucky people! All you have to do is leave a comment. What would you get? And if you're the kind of person that likes to up your odds, you can sign up for their newsletter and come back here to comment you did so for an additional entry.  Easy peasy.  Meanwhile, this Ju Ju Be and are will be planning more travels just because. Good luck!

  1. I know what you mean on the whole purse/bag traveling thing. I usually have my diaper bag and then a backpack I switch to for events...but I am constantly juggling back and forth! ahh! :) I would totally love a new bag, but that's probably not in the budget (nor practical since my youngest is 1.5 and who knows if there are more coming later). I did find the skip hop zoo kid backpacks that I've totally eyed for a long time. My kiddos would each love one! Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. Yes please! I'm a sucker for purses so I'd have to get a bag. It's one of my goals in life to have a bag like in the movie, One Fine Day, where she is able to pull something out of her purse and overcome all the obstacles for the day.

  64. Initially my immediate thought is obviously I'm getting a cute bag...but then those rainbow toys...you know how it's hard for mama to spend for herself rather than the kids. But we could say the bag is technically for the kids since it is a diaper bag after all. ;)
