DIY Baby Document Organizer {Video}

I’m in crazy nesting mode.  I’m trying to make sure everything is ready to roll before Harper’s arrival.  Being in charge of another humans life, you have to keep up with everything.  The easiest way for me to keep up with everything for my babies is to keep everything in one place.  I put together a baby document organizer for Harper, just like I did for Peyton.  Please give me a pregnancy pass on this video because I look a mess!

What to Wear Home After Delivery

My scheduled delivery is so close, yet so far!  I hope Harper decides to make an appearance sooner, but I don’t think she is going to show up until my scheduled c-section in two weeks.  Packing a hospital bag for delivery can be challenging, especially if you are having a c-section.  Just like me, I’m sure your thinking, what am I going to wear home from the hospital.

Mini Me in Calypso St. Barth

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Yes, I’m still pregnant.  I’ve been waddling around the house trying to do what I can but most of the time I just feel like I can’t go any further.  This weekend Peyton and I had a Mommy + Me date.  I took her out to a trampoline park and dinner.  These are her last few weeks as my only child.  I’m kinda in my feelings about it.  I also realized how much Peyton is starting to look like me, especially in these pictures.  With her hair like this, she looks like my mini me.  calypso st barth girls 1

Help End Childhood Cancer + EPIC $1500 Value Giveaway #StJude

Can you imagine finding out your 5 month old baby has cancer?  The thought of anyone having to deal with that situation is heartbreaking.  Sad thing is, it could be any of us.  What would you do?

I recently had lunch with a mom of a 22 month old little boy named CJ.  He was diagnosed with cancer at 5 months old.  My heart hurts for mom and the family because they had to deal with this.  Thank GOD, CJ is still with us today and is the happiest and active little boy.  He is now cancer free thanks to the FREE care that he received from St. Jude.

If you are not familiar with St. Jude, they are a research hospital that treats and defeats childhood cancer.  The best part is that St. Jude patients NEVER receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.   I’ve met with patients and I know this is a fact. Moms and family only concern is their child.  St. Jude counts on us to make this happen.  We need you help to raise awareness and funds for this important cause.  This can happen to any of our families.

Real Talk About Blogging + Money

I get asked all the time by fellow bloggers and strangers how they can make money from blogging. I try my best to answer their questions but it may not be what they want to hear. There are bloggers out there preaching on Twitter and Periscope telling you how they are balling out of control but they are leaving out some important information. I really prefer not to get into the money talk. But I will tell you about my blogging journey and maybe it will help you with yours.
