i am…A work at home mom, former coffee addict turned tea addict (ok I'm still addicted to coffee), writer who lives in this semi-large town in arkansas, is strapped always to her iPhone, Litfuse nester and is a sinner saved by grace. Dirty diapers, books, running (or not), paper loving, instagrams, messes, lover of one. Welcome to my world.

I now am rocking movie star lashes thanks to my wonderful friend, Adena (seriously she is wonderful. Apparently I have a million lashes and every last gets an extension — now that’s friendship!)
The extensions will stay on until they fall off (which is a little while). If you are wanting something fun for this summer (and easy — this is one more way for me to be lazy. Since mascara is really the only makeup I wear in the summer (ok ever), I now don’t even have to put that on!) I would highly recommend giving Adena a call. Annnnnd if you know a mommy that’s expecting… this is a WONDERFUL present. You’ll always feel beautiful and put together (even if you only had 2 hours of sleep the night before). The great thing about Adena is (well, other then the fact that she’s awesomely sweet…) she charges a fraction of what the salons are charging (and she’s more fun to talk to). So really, you don’t have anything holding you back! Do it. I dare you!
It is no secret that I’ve been needing a new bag. In fact, my husband told me I needed a new bag when I came home with this one…
I’ve been carrying it for the better part of 2 years. It was falling apart and just getting old. If you know me, I’m pretty particular about my bags. For one I have to be able to fit my planner, a book, and diaper/wipes if I feel so compelled not to carry the diaper bag (which is getting to be more and more).
My sister shared this blog with me last year and since then I’ve been drooling over her creations. They are gorgeous. I’ve been carrying mine for over a week and I am in love with this bag.
The strap is leather and gets more broken in and comfortable and amazing every time I carry it! This seriously is one of my favorite bags I’ve ever had the privilege of carrying!
If you are looking for a new purse, or just want a new one, you really cannot go wrong with one of Paige’s bags. I will have to compel you to quickly click over to Paige’s etsy shop, Light Nest, and get one of these for yourself! (above middle photo from Paige’s blog — all credit of awesomeness goes to her)
It all started when I first stumbled upon this on Pinterest during one of my many half asleep feedings of Drew one night:
And then I saw this feature that the ever so lovely Elsie Larson is doing on her blog.
I just had a baby. I’m somewhat back to my pre-pregnancy size, but not weight and there are places that are bigger/smaller then pre-Drew. I don’t really fit in my pregnancy clothes anymore — they fall off or swallow me. And most of my pre-pregnancy clothes just fit…funny – IE I’m in a size smaller then when I got pregnant (but the scale says I’m heavier… explain that one…) however, the size smaller doesn’t really fit .. right. I’m blaming it on the weird “baby bulge” that still have (grrr) My body is all … awkward. I absolutely HATE spending money on clothes right now as I’m working on losing all this extra weight that has uninvitedly taken up residence on my body in the past five years. So I have decided that I’m going to re-organize my clothes. I’m going to have X amount of pieces to make X amount of outfits. I’m going to get those pieces that fit right and make me feel good about myself (which, let’s be honest post baby moms… that takes a lot). This is going to crazy interesting as all the outfits I find have to be breastfeeding friendly (which generally means no dresses…pout) I’ll be sure to post more as I get my outfits built.
