Life Lately. All sorts of updates.


*We had a garage sale last weekend and it was a huge success. I made a couple hundred {hello new fall clothes for Elliana}, and I sold barely anything. Which means? I have tons more left over when our neighborhood has another one in the Spring. Honestly, it was so nice to just sit out there with my mama and chit chat. Very nice.

*Which reminds me, I know I promised an Elliana blog sale of all her amazing items... but guys... life has been so busy around these parts that after just going through a stash of clothes {taking pictures and pricing}, I realized how time consuming it was and how it probably wasn't worth it? What I think I'm going to be doing is putting up a few pieces instead of everything. No date yet. It's honestly at the bottom of my to-do list {which happens to be the size of Texas}.

*I have been doing a lot of shopping lately. I mean a lot. So much so that it is deja-vu all over again with the UPS guy {no worries, I learned to put on appropriate clothing before opening the door. wink}  being at my house on a daily basis. What this also means is that deals of the week is going to be coming back very soon. Remember when I did this last year in preparation for the holidays to let all my readers know of the fabulous deals going on? Welp. It's happening again! Hope you all are as excited as I am. Also? Fall decorating is in full swing.

*I am working on an amazing project/link-up coming up for my blog. It involves 3 other beautiful mamas and a way for all mama's to connect. Remember my "meet this mama" features that I had? Well it's something around the lines, except it will happen all at once and everyone is invited. Oh I just cannot wait to share the details!

*Pregnancy has been going wonderful. I am now 25.5 weeks! Almost in my third trimester! No bump attack post this week as I have so many blog posts that are scheduled and in much need of being posted. They are so dated it's getting bad. However? I'm thankful I have them!

*My BFF Jody is flying in to stay with me this weekend! I pick her up at the airport on Friday {technically today when this post is scheduled} and I can't tell you how excited I am! I told her that I am going to be waiting for her with roses and balloons.... how embarrassing right?! HA! Don't put it past me. I SO would. We have some fun stuff planned this weekend... but mainly lots of girl time and shopping. What else do you need!

*We have been park obsessed now that the weather has cooled down. So much so that we are there almost every day! And for about an hour- an hour and a half. We love it. And I absolutely adore this age where Elliana soaks it all in. She is such a toddler. Here are some pictures below of a park day. Tell me these don't make you smile :)

*We are basically done with the BIG GIRL ROOM! My husband is fabulous and took the day off yesterday and we got so much stuff done. I'm talking the big dresser painted, the bookcase painted, all transferred upstairs. All that is left? Buying a large mirror and putting up a couple frames. Which means? A big reveal on the blog. I know I know, I've only been talking about it for 5 years!

*I am almost to my third trimester. Did I mention that already? Ah, yes, I did. I'm just still in so much shock I have to keep repeating that to myself.... someone... hold on.

*Did I mention that I have been doing  a lot of shopping lately? Oh yes? I did? Ah, ha. So you see, a lot of this shopping has also been for Elliana. Shocker. This is how the vicious shopping cycle works...I place an order through Baby Gap for about 6 items. That order comes. I put these clothes on Elliana and fall in love....only to be reminded that the sale is still going on....only to catch myself back on the Baby gap placing another order. And then I decide I want more. So I place another. And then I forgot something, so I had more. 3 orders later and my daughter has a whole new Baby Gap fall wardrobe. Here is a sneak peek of the outfit that started it all.... it's a domino effect.

*And if that isn't enough cuteness/brain overload than I don't know what is.

*P.S. I have an amazing target gift card giveaway going on below and ANOTHER one next Tuesday. You lucky dogs you.

*Also just added 2 new Advertising options! Check them out before they are gone. And as an incentive, I'll give 30% off to the first two to purchase this spot: use code: 30off
