Halloween Costume - Easy DIY

I decided to make Rea a costume this year...something low budget.

I was scouring thru pinterest and came across a few prospects until I decided on Pocahontas!



Most of these items are from Hobby Lobby or Esty.

 
I actually used two rolls of tulle.
 
to start the tutu...
cut a ribbon long enough to go around baby's waist.
cut the tulle into sections of about 14 inches long
 
take each piece of tulle ( I used 3 at a time for a fuller tutu) and fold in half. place it under the ribbon and loop it thru to make a knot around ribbon
 


and that's it!

 
I can't wait to see what Rea looks like on Halloween!
 
have a great day!

Fitness 101 - Intro

 
I am no expert when it comes to fitness but my hubby and I...we do have a lot of practice under our belts!


I figured I would try at least once a week or at least every two weeks (depending on how much blogging I can do) try to give you tips on exercising and eating healthy. Would you be interested? 

...............................

Well lately...I've been struggling with making it to the gym and eating healthy...I'll be doing good for a few days and then the next day I'm scarfing down a jar of icing or 3 big bagels in one sitting. Yeah. I know. The horror. It's ok...haven't we all been there at some point? No? Ok then.

Before I became pregnant...I was probably in some of the best shape ever...I had somewhat of a six pack, I was lean, and I felt great!


 


During my pregnancy...I ate whatever I wanted and now I'm paying for it. I gained 40 pounds. I lost 20 right off the bat....then 10 and now I have 8 pounds to go...3 months after giving birth. 

The below was week 34 and 39 of my pregnancy.


................................

Some topics I will discuss are meal prepping, exercises for certain muscle groups and healthy recipes.


Right now....I am offering customized meal plans...

80% diet and 20% gym!

What are some things you would like to see in these posts?
my next post will be about meal prepping.
 
Have a great day!

Oh POOP...


If someone would have told me that when I have a child...I would be obsessed with their poop....I would've said "oh gross, you're kidding me right....what the heck". 

Well....when you have a kid....you WILL be obsessed with their poop...probably covered in poop and definitely smelling poop.

Has she pooped today?
How many times?
What time was it?
Was it a big poopy diaper?
What color?
Was it runny or thick?
Oh man...she hasn't pooped in a day.
Here...let me massage your little tummy so you can hopefully poop.


POOP POOP POOP
it's no joke...

Happy Monday yall!

Hello Blog World

Hello here!


It has been quite a while since I've blogged obviously and it was a much needed break!

Blogging at become like a job...i'd sacrifice family time just to make sure I had that blog post ready.

I don't plan on writing every day that's for sure but since I'm home....if I happen to have some free time....I may write a post here and there.

Why am I home...you ask!?!?
Well...if you follow me on instagram....you already know!


Eric and I have a new addition to our family...a little girl named Reaghan Elizabeth. And we couldn't be happier!


She is already 3 months old and growing so fast and She looks just like her dad (from the nose up anyway)!




Parenthood is definitely rewarding and a lot of work at the same time but she is worth it, for sure!

I'll be back soon...just wanted to introduce our new addition and step my foot back into the blogging world!

Xoxo

- 'Maxed' Out -

If you follow me on instagram...you probably have realized that I LOVE Maxis! Skirts or Dresses!





Did you know that the first maxi dress I ever bought or owned was last year around this time?!

Crazy...I know. Now I am obsessed.

Some of my fav places to buy maxis are Modern Vintage Boutique (they sell out of everyhting so quickly though), Uoi, La Posh, and Asos.

Here are a few Maxis I've pinned from Pinterest.




What are your favorite stores to
buy maxi dresses or skirts from?
I'm dying for more places to shop haha!
