DIY Headband holder

This is by no means an original idea, but I thought I'd share anyway! I found the idea for this on Pinterest (where else?!).

It's hardly a project that needs instructions, but I'll give you the basics, anyway!

First, get a large container of oats, and clean out the inside. 

I used contact paper and burlap to cover my container, but you could use almost anything - wrapping paper, fabric, etc. Cut your material of choice to the size of your container and stick or glue it on.

 After I had covered mine in contact paper, I added a piece of burlap around the middle, which I hot-glued on. I would recommend turning your container upside down with the lid secured (it's not too noticeable), and covering the bottom of the container (which will be facing up) with your paper/fabric.

Done! So easy! I put mine on top of a candle holder, just to give it some height and extra cuteness.

Let me know if you have other clever ideas to store headbands! Audrey just started liking them, so I know we will be adding even more to her collection!

Baby announcement!

I announced that we found out the new baby's sex on Instagram last week, but in case you don't follow along there, I thought I should announce it here as well. I would have done so much sooner, but we haven't been at home for more than 24 hours in the last couple of weeks.


It's another GIRL! We couldn't be more excited! Especially Audrey! This was her reaction when we told her the news in the doctor's office. She had been saying it was a baby sister all along! She must have known!

A picture of us on the day we found out.

We are so excited to be welcoming another little princess into our family, and we know that Audrey will be the best, and sweetest big sister ever. She constantly talks about the baby and how she's going to be my little helper. I know my heart is just going to melt seeing them together.

Hope your week is great so far!

A few bump pictures

I thought it'd be fun to share some pictures of my growing bump! Currently, I'm 17 weeks. We are getting really excited to find out if we're having a boy or a girl (but won't know for a few more weeks).

Here's a really cute one of Audrey from my 8 week pictures. It's adorable how into the baby she already is! She's so interested and always talks about how she's going to be a big sister and a helper for mommy! I can't wait until she meets the new baby for the first time!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Cute maternity wear alert!

Hey everyone! Lately, I've been browsing online for maternity clothes, and I just stumbled across this site that I thought was worth sharing with you.

Have you heard of it? They have such a cute selection! Definitely not your typical maternity wear. Here are a few things I have my eye on!

They even have a good amount of styles that can also be used for nursing! And cute statement jewelry at a great price, too. 

Have fun shopping! I know I will!

A baby shower

We threw a baby shower for my sister, Stephanie, a couple weeks ago. She's expecting her first baby (a girl), at the beginning of September. My Aunt Donna was so gracious to let us use her home, which ended up being the perfect backdrop for our pink and horse themed shower. A little background on the horse theme for dad has owned, driven and trained racehorses since he was 18, so we grew up around them, and even lived on a farm for a while. Stephanie still loves horses, so we figured it was only fitting to include them in her shower. We kept things sweet and simple and I think Stephanie was pretty happy with how it turned out. 

Enjoy the pictures!

Hope you're having a great week!
