With the varying school schedules, it might seem strange to some that I’m already thinking about back to school shopping in July. However, school has been out since the end of May over here, and with the baby due any day now and school starting at the beginning of August, this mama is trying to make some moves!
I always try to be savings conscious, but I’m even more aware of making smart budgeting choices as our family grows. My oldest is heading into 1st grade this year (somebody pinch me!), so I stocked up on school supplies at Family Dollar!
So last weekend I did a thing. At exactly 37 weeks pregnant I put on a pretty dress, got all dolled up, and had a maternity photo shoot with Morgan Hayes Photography!
I had maternity photos taken with my first pregnancy, but not the second, and I was on the fence this time around. For no good reason, really. I know this precious rainbow baby will complete our family and I wanted to make this last pregnancy memorable. However, I kept putting the idea off until one day it hit me. I need to do this!! I knew I would want these photos in honor of this special time in our lives and I’m so glad I went for it.

Life with our daughters includes lots of purses, accessories and so.many. shoes!!
They easily have more than I do, but as they get older I’m focused more on getting them better quality footwear over quantity.
When I first came across The Humble Soles I knew their handcrafted leather shoes would be wonderful for my growing girls. They would last and wouldn’t be another item they’d outgrow in a matter of weeks.
While these things are great, it’s the heart behind the shop that impressed me the most.

Do you eat dinner as a family? We do our best to every night and keep it pretty simple during the week. However, we try to switch things up on the occasional Sunday, and this weekend we had a delicious meal courtesy of my mama!
She had a taste for smothered pork chops and cabbage and we were all ok with that! I wanted to contribute with a quick and easy side, and thanks to Stella® Organic Fresh Mozzarella we had some creamy and extra cheesy mashed potatoes that were the perfect compliment to our meal!
I received these items from Creative QT in exchange for a review. As always, opinions are honest & my own.
My 3 and 6 year old share a bedroom, and keeping it clean can often be an uphill battle. Our recent move gave me the opportunity to organize and sift through a lot of treasures junk the girls had acquired, in hopes of a bit of a fresh start in our new place.
So far they’ve kept the room on the up and up (gloooooory!!), but one area was still a huge issue until recently.
The stuffed animals!!! Ahhhhhh!!!
My girls have A LOT of stuffed animal friends (this is paired down…eek!), and until now they have been in hiding behind their beds.
I was at a bit of a loss (we’ve tried that whole hanging net thing and it was a bust), until our Stuff ‘n Sitfrom Creative QTarrived!
