Strolling with UppaBaby!

Austin & I are kind of obsessed with "stroller shopping". We look at strollers like others would look at cars. We're always noticing who has what stroller and different features all of the companies have. Haha it becomes quite a game while we are at airports and we've been at the airport a lot lately. So we've kind of had a crush on UPPAbaby for a while and were excited to get their UPPAbaby stroller in the mail. We always debate taking our stroller on trips because we use to just carry Olive everywhere. But now that she is such a wiggle monster we don't dare to leave our stroller behind. Taking our stroller to Mexico was such a life saver! It can carry up to 25 lbs but we miiiiiiight have pushed that limit a bit and it wasn't even an issue. We usually check our stroller at the counter before we even go in but we decided to check it at the gate this time and it was so lovely having the stroller carry all of our heavy "carry ons" instead of us. Travel tip! Buy one of those airline stroller bags.. we have a Southwest bag that was $15 and we throw our stroller, car seat and dock-a-tot all in it! If you don't check your stroller until you get to the gate the bag is easy to carry along in the bottom and takes up zero space.

I love that it can face out or face inwards and that it folds down in one piece. Also Olive likes to hang her legs so the footrest is tucked back. She thinks it's a little game to kick her feet and were okay with that because she usually tries to stand up if we have the footrest up! She has to be strapped in at all times because girlfriend likes to think she can stand as we push her. I keep our stroller in our trunk and just pop it out wherever we go. Either for coffee, walks or the mall. I know a ton of moms who loathe their strollers and would rather not even deal with them so we are super thankful we've had such a positive experience with this one. We recently started facing Olive forward to see everything and it breaks my heart that she is growing but I love that we can still have her face us. Now if only she would become Queen of the stroller naps! But her napping in the stroller has only happened an entire 4 times in the last 10 months! Adventuring with this little is so fun and even though we love to wear her in slings all the time its nice to have a little stroller break from time to time. 

Olives wearing the sweetest little outfit from Cottontail it arrived in the mail all the way from New Zealand and we are swooning. It's so perfect for fall and I love the little boho pattern. Its one of those pieces ill be keeping forever! You can shop her pieces HERE. They are so lovely and I'm wearing this dress from BellaBlu
