Pandora + Renee & Jeremy | FAB 50:1

I am so excited.

That is a good feeling.

I have been mulling for the last couple of months. Mulling. Steeping. What is next? How do I share all these little tidbits I keep wanting to share in a quick and fun manner. Instagram style. But not on IG. On the blog. I usually have big articles and short little blurbs often get overlooked because somehow they seem less important than stuff on my heart. But they are not. We are living for the little joys right now. & that’s what I’ve decided 2013 is all about.

Pare it down. Rid the excess. Keep the joy. Share the things we love most. The stuff that makes life easier or more blissful. Or things that just help us survive the day.

Enter my 2013 blog project: my FAB 50 finds. :) Here’s how it’s going to work:

Due to questions and blog/facebook comments and what used to be a zillion IG comments about everything I shared, I have decided to feature one little thing each week. Just one thing or resource or product or idea that is making me happy. I’m keeping it simple. Not a lot of words. Just a couple of pictures. What it is. How we use it. Why we love it. & where to find it. I’ll always have a link below the images where you can find exactly what I am talking about.

Sound good? :)

I am not going to post on a specific/regular day of the week. I’m giving myself that freedom from a deadline. I’ll share one-ish thing a week. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. There will be 50 by the end of the year. Promise.

So here’s the first one! I hope you find the same joy in it as we do!

To find MY channel (yes, this exact one!) follow this link & add it to your Pandora Playlists: Shawna’s Kiddies Station on Pandora

I use the Pandora app on my iPhone and airplay it on our TV/speakers. Click here to learn more about AppleTV.

& how difficult is it to use? caroline turns everything on by herself while I cook breakfast every day.

& then she sings. & dances. ;)

*& just a little update on shop styleberry: I had every intention to get it rolling asap and then we got hit HARD with the norovirus. Like, two grandmas flew in and Everett was hospitalized for several days, HARD. It took a bit to recover and we are finally all back to normal, so look for that to get going in the coming weeks!

  • Natalie C. - So glad you are all well again!!! Norovirus is scary stuff!
    I love Renee and Jeremy and have been listening to them ever since you posted the “yellow” you tube video. Looking forward to the new fab 50 ☺ReplyCancel

  • Kate - Love this! Great idea, as always. Thanks for sharing! Glad to hear everyone is feeling better. Sounds like quite a scare you had there. Hopefully things are getting back to normal. Looking forward to your Fab 50!ReplyCancel

  • Larissa S. - So sorry to hear you were hit so hard with the norovirus – SCARY! I hope both Everett and Caroline (and you) are doing much better! I look forward to hearing about the items that are keeping you happy. I have a 6 month old and when I was pregnant I bought so many of your top products and LOVED them. SWADDLING SAVED MY LIFE and created a great sleeperReplyCancel

  • nicole dyk - i love this friend. we are totally going to be addicted to this! also, i love this new watermark/logo of yours.


  • Navigating the Mothership - We have a been a fan of R&J at our house for a while now. Sorry to hear about the scary hospitalization of your little guy. We also had norovirus & the flu this month, but were able to muddle through without anything getting seriously ill. Hope you get a pass on any further bugs this season! And hooray for Grandmas.ReplyCancel

  • Jessica - So glad you are all feeling better….and thank goodness for Grandmas, huh? There is nothing better in the world for a house full of sickies.

    Love the idea behind your new project. I’ll be looking forward to the updates. We love Renee and Jeremy too…I never thought about finding them on Pandora (although we listen to it through our Roku all.the.time). Rather than kids music, which drives me a bit batty too, we listen to oldies. Like “Itty Bitty Pretty One” and “Build Me Up Buttercup.” I got the idea from G’s school and it proved to be a hit – the girls love it and dance away (with me joining in for a bit of dancing fun on occasion too :)ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Humphries - Love the station! Thanks for sharing!

    Happy you are all feeling better and that you’re blogging again!ReplyCancel

  • Beth - do you have separate speakers set up on your tv? or are you able to stream only to your speakers in your tv? I ask b/c when we airplay, we have only been able to have it show visuals on the screen. Either album graphics, or our own slideshow. While, I love the kids being able to look at photos, sometimes I would just like the music to be, like you say, background.

    We love elizabeth mitchell, this has a super similar vibe. can’t wait to hear more. she’s probably on this. lol.ReplyCancel

    • -shawna- - I always have the slideshow going! I close my TV armoire when I have company. :) & Elizabeth Mitchell is on there about as much as R&J!ReplyCancel

  • Amber - I like the idea and will definitely keep reading. However, I am having a hard time reading the font to the right of the photos.ReplyCancel

  • Nicole - What a great idea! Your blog in one of my go-to sites when researching various kiddie products/ideas, so I will definitely be tuning in. I’ve actually been on the hunt for some new kid-friendly Pandora stations, so this perfect. Thank you.

    I’m so glad to see Everett feeling better. I had the nastiest of stomach bugs last week and was praying my daughter wouldn’t get it. Luckily, so far so good.ReplyCancel

  • lindsay - love! miss seeing your blog and IG posts. glad to see you back and that everyone is feeling healthy again and love your new blog idea :) i always like seeing your favorite things posts.ReplyCancel

  • aimee - Thanks for introducing me to Renee & Jeremy. My one year old and I just listened to them, and he was bouncing and clapping to the music!ReplyCancel

  • Vicky - What a fun idea! Will you continue to post any DIY’s or projects you do? Those are always great.ReplyCancel

  • Stefanie - I don’t remember if I’ve ever commented on anything you’ve posted before… but I’ve been a reader for about 6 months now. You’ve been a tremendous help in so many areas from helping me decide on FuzziBunz to walking me through the process of making baby food. I buy a lot of products you recommend, and now am in love with this Pandora station. You save me a TON of time and research. Just want to say I’m glad you decided to keep going with the blog. Short and sweet posts are all it takes to help us fellow mamas out. :) I know blogging- even a short one- takes time. Thanks for being such a valuable resource. Looking forward to more of the Fab 50!ReplyCancel

  • Kristy - New to commenting, but not following. My 9 month old LOVES this station, she squealed and bopped along in the car! Thanks for sharing. Just wanted to add, kudos to you for adding the watermark to your photos! :)ReplyCancel
