25 Apothecary Jar Fillers for Christmas

Last week I went to a craft night with ladies at my church and had so much fun. It’s been a while since I’ve had an evening with the girls. My life is a little outnumbered these days. I love my boys but there’s just something about crafting and hanging out with the girls that is so fun.

PicMonkey Tutorial: How to Boost Your Makeup

How to Boost Your Makeup with PicMonkey

If you have ever taken a selfie on a good hair day or make up day you know that pictures sometimes don’t show the awesomeness.

Sometimes I over do my makeup and it still doesn’t show up in pictures. Now I am not a “have to have makeup” kind of gal but if I am going to {Read More}

I’m typically nauseous my whole pregnancy unless I eat 6 small meals each day with crackers in between. You try telling a pregnant lady not to overeat and see if you survive! During the last month or two I start to feel cooped up. You know how winter blues feel because you’ve been stuck inside all winter? I start thinking about all the workouts I want to start on and all the outdoor activities I can do.  Tell me you {Read More}

Easy DIY Chalkboard Tutorial

Easy DIY Chalkboard

Last week I shared this easy diy chalkboard tutorial over at Bombshell Bling and this week I am sharing it with you! I am so happy with the way it turned out.
