My Birth Story

I wrote this post months ago, right after my baby was born. I’m just now getting around to posting it. But I wanted to make sure I had these events recorded. My baby’s birth didn’t go as planned, but it all worked out and I couldn’t be happier. On December 2, I went to visit … Continue reading

20 Week Bump Update

20 Week Bump Update

We are officially halfway there! 20 weeks until we get to meet this little one. How far along? 20 weeks Total weight gain: My weight is still around 124 lbs, so no gain yet. Maternity Clothes?

Pregnancy is unlike anything I could’ve imagined! I am a few weeks into my second trimester, and finally starting to enjoy this journey!

DIY Glitter Bottle Makeover

If you know me, you know I love glitter, sequins, and all things sparkly! And although I’m not a super girly-girl, I will take advantage of any opportunity to glitter something.

Peacock Swirl Tutorial

Peacock Swirl Tutorial

After over a YEAR of research, I have FINALLY decided to try the peacock swirl. I’ve been procrastinating. Not because I thought it would be too hard, but because I don’t have a slab mold.
