Big News + Big Changes

That was so sweet of you Ruan!

Helloooooo!  It's been quite some time since my last blog post!  Whoops!  I have been so consumed with the new shop and homeschool, this little blog fell by the wayside!  Welp, that's about to change!!

This little family is about to move!!  To our own home!! What?!!

In the very near future, Scott, the girls and myself will be moving into Scott's childhood/my mother-in-law's house.  She will be moving across the street to a smaller home.  That's right, across the street, straight up Raymond style!  Luckily for me, I hit the mother-in-law jackpot and couldn't be happier to have her just a stones throw away!

Now, the house we are moving into, like I said, was Scott's childhood home.  Meaning that it's old!  There is a lot to be done and I can't wait to get started!  That being said, I'm pretty sure this little blog here is going to consist of a lot of DIY's in the near future, so if you are a DIYer buckle your seatbelts cause here we go!!

I absolutely LOVE the house but it needs sooooooo much work and updating my mouthing is salivating just thinking about it (I am an interior designer BTW).  So look forward to quite a few posts on home updates and money saving tips!

Not having a computer freaking suuuucks!

For real though, it sucks!
I know when I normally come back from a blogging hiatus I have some reason that I've been super busy, and while that is true, there is another road block in my way!
A week or so before Christmas my laptop screen died! Guys, I don't know what I did with myself before the internet! I was having withdrawals, it was bad!

I wanted to blog about our Christmas, which was wonderful but a train wreck and would take an entire post, I also wanted to post my New Years resolutions (bummer I know). 

Well, thankfully Scott was able to bring home an extra work computer! I was so excited, I jumped right on to write my "catch up" post, only to find that this computer is a complete P.O.S.! It wouldn't let me type, so naturally my next option was my phone. But let's be honest, unless you are checking instagram or Facebook using the internet on your phone is a pain!

Finally I came to my senses and I am now using Ainsley's (yes Ainsley) tablet. Santa went a little crazy this year.  which really is only a small step up from the phone!

So while I am getting my blogging fix, unfortunately I have no pictures to go with it (wah wah). So you should probably just follow me on instagram @ahacreations to see what we are up to! 

Hopefully we can gt this computer mess under control and I can write blog posts that don't look super long and boring!

And Just like that...

My sweet Harper Shay turned one, ONE!!

 I am still asking myself how this happened so quickly.  People say it all the time, cherish every moment because they go by so quickly.  I know all of this, but quickly doesn't truly describe how fast this year has gone by, I would say lightning speed is much more appropriate. 

Ainsley's first birthday seemed to come really quickly, but I was prepared, mentally, emotionally, and physically (ya know, the party and all).  Here I am with Harper and her first birthday pops up, I was an emotional wreck for about the first three hours of last Friday.  Maybe it's because I do have Ainsley and everything else that has to be done.  I mean Harper's first year consisted of traveling back and forth to Ainsley's preschool, my school work, keeping up with housework, the shop, and now homeschooling Ainsely.  There was little time to just focus on Harper and Harper alone.  I had my moments, and made sure I made those moments if they didn't just happen, but it just didn't seem like enough time to fill up a year! But, just like that, whether I was ready or not, my baby is now a ONE YEAR OLD!

Under The Weather + A Shop Update

Well fall has finally come upon us, weather, colds and all!  Last Friday, Ainsley woke with an upset stomach, headache, and fever.  Yuck!  Thankfully she got plenty of rest that day and it only lasted about 24 hours.

  Then came Saturday and Harper woke up breathing a little funny then proceeded to hack her lungs up the rest of the day.  This continued and I finally called her Doctor Tuesday and she was diagnosed with Croup.  Double Yuck!  She was put on a steroid to keep any swelling in her airways down and is finally doing much better.  Of course, just as everyone else is getting better I get a mixture of both of their crud! Aghhhhh!

Along with all of the yuck going on here, I have been stretched about as thin as I can be!  If you weren't aware, I am still currently taking classes for an Interior Design degree.  Well, along with that I am homeschooling Ainsley, which is turning out to be quite the time consumer!  All the while I have my Etsy shop which has started picking up quite a bit (Hallelujah!) but finding time to fit everything into the day has been quite the task and this little blog has taken the toll! 

Well enough whining for now, I am going to try to get back to my regular blogging schedule as soon as this wretched class that I am in is over (next week!!!!!).  Until then, I will leave you with a little shop update.  If you don't follow my shop on Instagram (you should) you are missing out on a lot.  I have a giveaway going right now with some pretty awesome ladies!  Along with this giveaway I have also added a few new items!

Moccasins are now available!

Dark Chocolate Leather
Red Suede

Pumpkin Spice Suede

New Fun Tutu Onesies

And of course, being the Michael Jackson freaks we are, I had to do a Thriller inspired onesie for Halloween! 

Here is the amazing Giveaway going on right NOW!!  A winner will be chosen on Friday, so follow me and Instagram, find this post and follow the VERY simple rules!

Ainsley is 6!!!

That is a really hard reality to grasp!  Maybe that is why it has taken me almost two weeks to write this post.  My baby Ainsley is really 6 years old! We had her party on her birthday and she was so overjoyed.  We kept it pretty low key with a few of her friends and family at a little park.  She wanted a Powerpuff Girls cake, she really makes it easy on me!  

Watching her grow and learn the past six years has been such a joy!  She has always has the sweetest most giving heart.  She lights up a room the moment she enters and always thinks of other people before herself.  We are so blessed to call her our own and I couldn't be more proud of the little lady she has become!  I have to make sure I soak this time up, before I know it she will be 16!

I hear my babies calling my name and I know that they're the only ones

So it's super late in the week to do a weekend recap but oh well!  Technically Monday was part of the weekend so I am only 3 days late!

This past weekend Scott and I flew to Atlanta to meet up with his Aunt and drove down to Alabama to spend the weekend on the lake. 

We had a blast, so naturally here is a photo dump!

Our view from the house!

And from the boat

Scott took driving the boat very seriously, as he does most things!

The sunsets on the lake are unreal!

Our last day had a lot of rain, and this happened!  

It was so so hard to leave, but once we were on the plane "I was hopin' for Raleigh, I can see my babies tonight".  Coming home to them made leaving the lake much easier!  

Hope you all had a fantastic holiday weekend as well!
