Welcome Caroline G.

I am excited to introduce my newest sponsor. Meet the lovely handmade shop Caroline G.
This shop features adorable hair accessories for little girls and 10% of all proceeds go to Girls Inc. I just love that!!! 
Take a peek at some of the absolutely adorable things you will find at Caroline G.

Here is a little bit more about Carrie and her adorable shop in her own words,

"Growing up I loved bright colors and all things girly, and was always finding one craft or another to make. Those were some of the reasons why I ended up becoming a preschool teacher. I started the business in 2010 as a hobby because I realized how passionate I was about making, creating, and adding beautiful things into the world. I have also discovered how much I love connecting with customers and other handmade business owners as well.

I fully believe that I am incredibly blessed and thankful that I have opportunity to run my own business. I think one of the greatest gifts anyone can give a little girl (or child) is the empowerment and hope that she in fact can achieve her biggest dreams, which is why I donate 10% of the proceeds from each bow to Girls Inc.

I have made custom bows for flowers girls in wedding, family portraits, and birthday party favors."


Shop owner Carrie has so generously offered to give my readers 10% off their total order by entering the code "welcome10" at checkout. offer valid through 3/31.

My Online Garage Sale

So I have decided to start a little "online garage sale" page! 
I have A LOT of clothes and I haven't been able to wear any of them in 2 years because I've been pregnant. I am about 60 pounds still from being able to wear most things and I fully intend to loose all the weight and in a timely manner! This weight is driving me CRAZY!!! 
Anyway, even though I plan to loose the weight there are a lot of things that I will probably never wear again now that I am a mom so I thought I would go through my closet and see if any of you would like any of it!
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I only had time to go through a tiny portion of my closet while the babies were napping so expect much more coming. 
I have at least 6 pairs of designer jeans to list too. 
 I have a pretty big size range. Anywhere from 6-12 so look around:)
If you are interested in anything or have questions please just email me at 
Oh, and here's the link to the page
{My Online Garage Sale}


Rue La La

Every once and a while I post a link to Rue La La because they have amazing deals on designer stuff and today they just added Hanky Panky to their boutiques.
They have the most confortable lace thongs in the entire world! SERIOUSLY!!
Anyway, if you want to sign up you can get $10 credit toward any of the boutiques they offer. They change every 2 days. I've shopped here about 4 times now and have always been pleased with the prices and the merchandise. I am a designer jean addict!!!!
It's by invite only so click {HERE} to sign up!

A week in My World

 Unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to take nice pitures with the camera so I end up snapping a lot of shots with my iPhone. Here is a few shots from last week.

Here is Ginger just learning to lift her head
Milton loves to point out her nose and gives her plenty of wet kisses.
Little Milton at the park.
One of his favorite things is to get into Ginger's crib and play with her owls. Luckily she's not old enough to protest yet.
Brother and sister. LOVE.
Me and the kiddoes leaving for our morning powerwalk.
Milton at the Park in his PJ's

Our amazing BOB stroller!!! We love this stroller. It has mountain bike suspension and shocks and the tires are so big they can handle anything! Ginger is still a bit too small for this and doesn't like it much so unfortunately I haven't been able to run much yet. We do go power walking every morning but I use the single stroller for Milton and I put Ginger in the baby carrier. She likes this much better but I am eager for her to be big enough to enjoy riding in her own seat so I can start running already!!! 
Ginger and her daddy. LOVE.
just the three of us
