Birthday Birthday!

Soooo, in case you were wondering ('cause you totally were) July is my birthday month!  We take birthdays very seriously around here and celebrate the entire month! So, I decided to start this month off right!  Since I will be turning 27, you can get 27% off any ad space or package for the entire month of July!

And I'm giving away one large ad spot and one small ad spot to the first two people to comment, that's one LARGE and one SMALL spot FREE!

The Little Things

Dress // Ross, Chambray // Walmart, Shoes // Target, Watch // Target, Bracelet // F21, Clutch // Thrifted, Sunnies // Target

Life has been pretty crazy around here lately!  Between taking care of the girls, creating new styles for the shop and fulfilling orders, school (yuck), and housework (double yuck) my days are a blur!  All too often, I find myself putting off the little things, like stopping to play one more game with Ainsley or getting on the floor with Harper for another 10 minutes.  Pretty soon I will be adding homeschooling to that list of daily things and before I get completely consumed, I need to start taking time to really enjoy those little things.  Not that I don't enjoy them, because they are some of the happiest of times, but I find myself rushing them a bit to make sure I can fit everything in!  They are only little once, and though these may seem like little things to me right now, they are actually the biggest things because to them they are everything!

That's enough rambling for today, time to go play go fish, Lalaloopsy style!

Here is this weeks inspiration pin

Melissa  and I took this in completely different ways again!  That's the beauty behind this little feature!

Also, don't forget to link up at the bottom and make some new friends!

Here is my take, hope you like:

(Whoa frizz, calm down!)

Dress // Ross
Booties // Target (similar)
Bracelet // F21
Sunnies // Target
Earrings // Target
Lipstick // Maybelline Vivids Neon Red 

I loved our inspiration pin for the mixture of the dainty lace top with the leather jacket and booties.  I learned my lesson last week with the blazer and decided not to go with leggings, but I added a black braided belt instead.

Now it's your turn to link up, anything and everything goes!

7 Months

Another month down!  It's going too fast!

New this month:
>> You are officially on the go!  You have been scooting for a while now, but you have finally figured out how to get your arms and legs to work together!  You are more of a sprinter, taking lots and lots of breaks but you get where you are going!

>> You tried blueberries for the first time and loved them!

>> You also had chicken, well you pretty much eat what we eat.  You NEVER get full!

>> You have two bottom teeth and are working on your top

>> You love the pool 

>> We are still nursing around 4-5 times a day

>> You are sleeping through the night!  Hooray!

>> You have learned how to express you anger with a very intentional squeal.  It's pretty hilarious!

 I can't wait to take you to the beach for the first time next month!  
This has been such a fun month!  You fill my heart with such happiness! 

Trying to take pictures for this update was nearly impossible.

 Here are a few more:

mmmm That looks tasty (again never gets full!)

She loves her fox!  We like to call him Sneak

That's all folks!

Growly Gus

I just wanted to stop in really quick to say hello!  I have a four page paper due today and I only have about half a page! Ahh! So of course the right thing to do would be to procrastinate all day by going thrifting and follow that up by writing a blog post!
I just wanted to share a little video of my gremlin baby!  This happens every time she eats, and sometimes just for fun!
Happy Saturday folks!

(sorry it's kind of long)

Sleep (or the lack of)

First, let me start off by saying that I am NOT a morning person!  When someone says they wake up at 7 or 8 in the morning, I cringe!  Don't get me wrong, when I had a job outside of the home, I did what most people do and rolled my butt out of bed at an ungodly hour, but I was not happy about it! 

You would think that having two children I would be a little more accustomed to waking would think.  However, Ainsley is what we call "an Andrews".  You see, Scott and his family are night owls, even his 66 year old Mom stays up late!  In turn, this means they like to sleep in.  So, we got lucky with Ainsley in that she would sleep until at least 9am when she was a toddler.  People were amazed when I would tell them this! forward 5 years and now we have little Harper. She not only looks more like my side of the family but unfortunately has inherited their sleep habits!  My parents consider "sleeping in" like 8:30, insane, I know!  Well, this has become Harper's sleep pattern.  She likes to go to be early (again not something we are used to) and she likes to get up veery early!  If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw where Harper was wide awake at 7:30, what you didn't see, was my zombie of a self laying next to her!

Since I am not a morning person, I tend to stay up waaay too late.  Again, something I should have learned by now! However, I tend to be a fairly stubborn person.  Well, last night, I did it again, only this time, Harper's incoming teeth really screwed up her (and my) sleep.  Which means, today I am running on fumes (if you couldn't tell from all of the rambling and this somewhat pointless post!)

If I have to get up at the crack of dawn, at least I am greeted with this sweet face!

New (sort-of) Link Up

Ok, so Melissa and I actually started this link up this past Tuesday, but I did a horrible job promoting it! oops!  Also, I had a few emails and comments that weren't really clear on the "rules".  Well, there are no rules.  This blog hop is just a fun way to meet some new people. You can link up anything, it does not, I repeat does NOT have to be from Pinterest.  
Melissa and I are the ones choosing our inspiration from Pinterest, so do not feel like you can't link up because your post has nothing to do with Pinterest!

Sooo, with that said, I hope to see you all next week for round 3 of Pin It & Spin It.

Pin It & Spin It >> Round 2

It's time for round 2 of Pin It and Spin It!  This week we are featuring the lovely Jenn from Jennifer Therese!  
This week we chose this pin as our inspiration!
Make sure to check out Melissa and Jenn to see their spin on this outfit!

Also new to the feature is the link up!  You can link up anything you have tried from Pinterest (an outfit, a craft, recipe, anything!) and link up your post at the bottom!

Now on to my take on the pin:

Shirt // Thrift
Dress // Walmart
Shoes and Belt // Ross
Watch, Earrings, and Ring // Target

 I had so much fun putting this outfit together, it really got me to look at my closet in a new way!  This is actually a dress that I put a shirt over!  To be completely honest, it was a few too many layers for NC this time of year, but would be perfect for early Spring!
I hope you liked our spins!

Now it's your turn to link up something you tried from Pinterest!

10 Things you probably don't care to know

So I just realized that in two short months, this little blog o'mine will be one year old! I also realized that ,while I share too many lots of pictures, I haven't really shared much about myself!

 I thought I would share 10 things about myself that you may or may not know! (Contain your excitement!)

>> I am a southpaw 
>> I have a birthmark on my neck that looks like a hickey. I have been asked my entire life (yes, even in elementary school!) if it was, NO it's not!
>> I can usually listen to a song about two times through and know 95% of the words to that song.  It's a really useful skill to have I tell ya!
>> I met my husband when I was 17 and he was 20
>> I am pursuing my BA in Interior Design
>> I sometimes wish I would have pursued Clothing Design
>> Scott says that I am the weirdest person he knows
>> I could listen to Motown all day every day
>> My thumbs are completely different, weird I know!

>> I have 4 tattoos, and yes, I regret them!

I know you are SO happy you wasted five minutes of your day to learn more about me!

On another note, Pin It and Spin It is back tomorrow AND it's a link up!  So, go try something, anything from Pinterest, write a post about it and link up!

Our Weekend in Pictures

We had a great weekend (minus a few bumps on Sunday, but the day ended well so that's all that matters)!  

Friday and Saturday were spent at the pool! I took the girls by myself Saturday, and let's just say I won't be doing that again!  Talk about one paranoid Mama!

This bathing suit makes me laugh!

Our little Fish, she could stay in the water all day!

This one on the other hand, seemed to prefer the shade and her toys! (See how this could get difficult for one person to monitor!)

We also took a much needed trip to the Farmer's Market.  I have been making pretty much all of Harper's food, I have ended up buying a few jars for when I am in a pinch.  So, I am constantly in need of fresh fruits and veggies, and what better place to get them and support our local farmers! Plus, it's always fun to just get out and walk around! 

The colors were so vibrant!

So that was our weekend summed up in a few pictures!  I hope you all had an awesome weekend as well!

P.S.:  Pin it and Spin it will be back next Tuesday PLUS it will be a link up.  SO if you have tried anything you have pinned on Pinterest (it could be a craft, recipe, outfit) write a post and link up!

Linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans!
