HELP- Home Remedies, Herbal, ANYTHING!!

Wow..have I been slacking lately! I have not had a blog post in two weeks! I know I should be ashamed!!

I have an amazing Cara Box reveal from a new friend I need to link up and some exciting news about the progress of baby to share!

The Cara Box will have to wait just a bit longer because I do not have the pictures to post, but the baby news can be shared!!

I am currently 1 cm dilated and having contractions! Yes that means that any day now this little booger could come! Of course I have been this way for the past two weeks and she has made no progress so that also means that I could be waiting a while too......

Mommy (& Daddy) would really like to meet out precious little angel so any day now would be nice!!

Any moms out there have any suggestions to get this baby here??? YES I am considered full term and she currently weighs over 7 pounds best guesstimate, so she is READY now I just need to get her here!!! Anything at all you know that actually works would be greatly appreciated. What did you do to get your little one here quicker (because lets face it those last couple of weeks you cannot think of anything other than wishing that little bundle of joy would come already!!)

Thanks in advance and I promise I will get the Cara Box reveal up as soon as possible (PS..It's a good one!!)

Monagrams & More: Baby style :)

Over the weekend I had my last and Final baby shower for my sweet little Angel. All of my family and friends have been so gracious in their giving and we have received MORE than enough to take care of our precious little girl.

All of the gifts have meant so much to us and we are truly grateful. I do not know what we would have done without the help of all our wonderful friends! From Diapers & Wipes to clothes all the way to the curtains to hang in the room we have not had to want for anything so far.

I have to share with you some of my favorite items received this weekend.I love Monograms on anything, but these were especially CUTE :)




This Beautiful scripture customized for Emory's room! I love the way it is written and it will look so good on her wall.


These amazing Onsies!! They even have matching little pants :) I can see a BIG BOW and some cute little shoes and my little fashionista will be set!!


As if the onsies monogrammed were not cute enough!! I absolutely love this frame and wish that I could be as creative as this!! 


This however was my project!! Her name each letter framed individually and will be hung above her crib with some pink ribbon :) I cannot wait to see what it looks like on the gray wall...stay tuned to see the finished product ;)

  

This bad boy was given to us by Cody's Dad & his Girlfriend. Now we can watch little man and Emory at the same time and not have to worry about a thing!! (Maybe we will even get the little turkey out of our bedroom!!!!)

  

And then there is this dress. I know it may not look too exciting to you but seriously it is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen for this summer. And one of the few items I have bought myself. I did pretty well throughout this whole pregnancy in waiting to buy only what I really needed. This little splurge is brought to you by Buy Buy Baby and will look amazing with some black leggings and sandals :)

More posts coming soon on some of my other amazing gifts, I just have to get the pictures from the other people first :) 

Hope you all have a great Tuesday!!

As a Mom I..Love to snuggle

As moms, a lot of us are introduced to new, awesome (and sometimes, not so awesome) experiences.
Us moms and dads? We've got some mad skills. Talent, if you will.

Hence the NEW link-up. Time to brag, ladies and gents!  Samantha (from Hooah and Hiccups) and Melissa (from After we Tied the Knott) would like to present...

A weekly post on Wednesdays where we share those goofy, awkward, interesting Mommy Moments!


As a mom, I...

Love my snuggle time!! My little man is a momma's boy through and through! (ASK ANYONE) SO our every night cuddle up on the couch and watch whatever lame TV show happens to be on while we wait for the Bf to come home is my favorite time of the day.

Now that BF has a new job and is usually home before said cuddle time he has got to join in on this amazing time as well! 



Sometimes the dog gets to join in too! lol



As I mom I sure do Love my Snuggles!
