BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

   I have been MIA the past few months but I'm ready to get back on the blogging train. So much has happened that I just haven't had time to invest the time & energy I want into this blog. I've had some family emergencies that I needed to travel for, my grandmother passed away unexpectedly, and of course the military has thrown some things our way as well.

BUT...THERE'S GOOD NEWS TO.....




WE ARE EXPECTING BABY #3, and she, yes she, will be arriving in September!!!



   This baby has been a huge part of me being absent from the blogging world. I was so sick and exhausted the first 14 weeks that I was completely miserable. The sickness has passed and exhaustion is still in control of my body, but my energy level is up from the previous trimester.

   3 GIRLS, 5 including myself and the dog, under 1 roof...we are expecting some crazy years to come...lol! I'm not going to lie, we were hoping for a boy this time around, but the universe has something else planned and we're okay with that. Do you know how hard it is to come up with a third girl name? We've had a boy name picked out since the beginning, then we finally decided on a first name but the middle name...this is where it gets us. It's a good thing we still have 19 weeks to figure it out!





Would my readers be interested in a pregnancy update series? I could talk about my experiences with a 3rd pregnancy compared to my others, give trimester updates, that type of thing. If this is something you all would like to see just let me know.

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.


Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...



It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
