  A couple Saturdays ago, Ben and I were lounging around watching Raiders of the Last Ark when our baby boy started kicking.  Ben got to feel him kick for the first time and it was a really special moment for the three of us.  Ben thinks it is pretty bad ass that it happened during Raiders of the Last Ark.  Since then, he has been kicking and moving non-stop and we love it. Lately I have been feeling great and really enjoying this part of my pregnancy.  Feeling my baby move inside...

I am not sure if I have ever mentioned it before but I have 7 nieces and nephews, 6 of which are under the age of 6.  So when Christmas time comes around I have to be creative in order to stay within my overall Christmas budget.  This year staying within my budget is especially important since we have our own little one on the way.  With the exception of my niece Kaitlyn who is a bit older than the others, I decided to get everyone else the same thing this...

You may remember the Mod Podge collage I made for my friend Jillian's baby shower last year.  Well this past weekend was her sister Christina's baby shower,  so I made another collage.  I used the same method as before but just changed up the design a bit since she is having a girl.

Read how I made it here.  Oh and if you like the paper I used for the grass, you can make your own at Japonizer.  Japonizer is a...

For weeks now I have been pinning my ideas onto my nursery/baby board on Pinterest but I needed to streamline those ideas.  So I decided to put together a more concise inspiration board. 1.  I adore this paper airplane nursery from Project Nursery. 2.  I love this Maskros Pendant lamp from Ikea and I think it would look great in our nursery. 3.  I pinned this image onto my nursery inspiration Pinterest board from here.  These dolls are called Ugly Dolls and...

Skip ahead a couple of weeks and I'm actually at the half way point!  Oh and we had our ultrasound on the 18th of this month and guess what?  It's a boy!  We are very excited but just to be honest, I was shocked.  I had such strong feelings that it was a girl but he surprised us all.  Since we thought it was a girl, we don't even have a boy name picked out yet.  We have a few that we like, so hopefully we...

Recently I have been planning our little one's nursery and the one thing I know for sure is that we will have a gallery wall on at least one of the nursery's walls, so I have been keeping my eye out for cute prints. I think one of these adorable prints from The Black Apple on Etsy will be perfect.

This little kitten reminds me of Olive.  I can't decide which one I like better.  Which...
