Baby Registry

Our baby registry feels like its never-ending and has been such an overwhelming task over here for the Raad family. Especially since there are SO many products out there and SO many brands. I went ahead and polled your favorite baby products over on The Raad Family account and yall sent over some good suggestions. After totaling the most popular recommendations and doing lots of research, below is a list of yalls favorite! Again not an expert but I hope that it helps you mama to be’s! 

You can also find a list to our registry here as an example if you are working on your own!

Stalking other registries helped me! After baby comes, I will do an updated one on things she loved and hated but remember, each baby is do different no matter what!

Ted’s Favorite Basics

My Outfit// Dress: Good American| Shoes: Dolce Vita

Ted’s Outfit// Shirt: Theory | Jeans: Paige | Shoes: Florsheim

Well, it was a bittersweet weekend as we handed over the keys to our first home! Not sure if it was the baby hormones but I was a wreck the whole time lol. There were so many memories from our first 5 years of marriage made in that townhome and I was so sad to see it go. We are still in our condo till the end of the year and then I’m sure more tear will come when we pack up that one as well!

I also wanted to share some of Ted’s go to brands from Nordstrom. He is pretty picky about the fit and quality so there was a lot of returning before he figured out what brands he really liked(that is why we order from Nordstrom lol). This is one of his favorite looks, when he’s not wearing his black t-shirt of course. His polo is Theory and he has it in a couple colors as well as some of their other shirts like this t-shirt. These Paige jeans are definitely one of my favorites on him and they’re comfortable to wear so its a win for both of us. I know I’ve shared his shoes with you guys before but I have to mention them again because he loves them and wears them constantly. The brand is Florsheim and  these definitely won’t be his last pair of shoes from this brand. A couple of his other favorite brands are Bonobos, Nordstrom Men’s Shop, and AG.

Our New Car


Just got the car all cleaned up and looking good! I have had so many questions on the car since Ted surprised me with it for Christmas so I thought I’d share a little. He surprised me with my dream “mom” car right after we found out I was pregnant. My old car was also breaking down and wasn’t going to last so getting a safe car was priority. I have been dreaming about a GLC 300 ever since I was 15 lol. My first car I saved up every penny and worked all of high school to pay it off. I was in tears when Ted surprised me with this one.

We got it from  Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land and cannot say enough good things. Ted and I grew up in Sugar Land so he knew exactly what dealership he wanted to go to when making the decision to get the car. Their customer service has been nothing short but amazing and everyone there is ready to help you out with whatever they can. Every time I have gone in it has been such a breeze (they also have a full soda bar, coffee, water, and snacks sooo thats a plus lol). We also have gone back twice to get the car detailed and the service team is great. Since we had to leave it overnight for the detail, they offered a loan car or a shuttle to accommodate us and ended up delivering the car back to my house the next day!

The car itself drives like a dream. I really love the safety features with it as well. A couple features that I really like are attention and blindspot assist which gives you a visual and audible warning with the cars around you coming into your lane and you swerving into theirs. It really makes me feel safe when driving in Houston, especially with baby coming! It has all the bells and whistles like Apple CarPlay(Andriod option as well), In-car wifi, and voice control which makes it easy to keep my eyes on the road while still being able to get important text or calls. One of my favorite things is the leather seats! I have always loved leather seats but on my old car they were so hot when you got in! These are soft and don’t heat up like the others did so loving that! Oh and the fact that the trunk has a button for hands-free closing!
