DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

Today, I'm excited to bring you another quick and easy iron-on vinyl project today. We are now in round 2 of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge and this month's theme is fashion. My team decided our theme for fashion would be "pop of color". Ryder had quite a few plain onesies and pants that needed a little extra something and adding on some blue iron-on vinyl was the perfect opportunity to give it the pop of color it needed!

Snuza Go! Product Review & Giveaway!

Snuza Go! Product Review + Giveaway #SnuzaGo

Disclosure:  I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Snuza and I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group.  The opinions on this blog are my own.   For those that have babies or have babies that are grown up. I know you can relate to this post. As a new mom (and dad) we worry about Ryder 24-7. Especially when he is sleeping (even though he isn't a big fan and hasn't caught on to this "sleep thing" yet). After I put Ryder to sleep at night, I … [Read more...]

Five Reasons Why We Love The Boppy® Newborn Lounger

5 Reasons We love the Boppy® Newborn Lounger

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Boppy Newborn Lounger . The opinions and text are all mine. I'm officially 7.5 weeks into this whole parenting thing. Day-by-day it is getting easier... Kind of. I remember the first few days home after our stay in the hospital. We had a crying baby and nothing we did made him quiet. One of the evenings, when I was feeling hopeless I opened up Ryder's closet in the nursery. I grabbed The Boppy® Newborn Lounger from the closet and … [Read more...]

My Birth Story

In the delivery room

I was planning to share my birth story last week on the blog in ode to Mother's Day, and then life got crazy, and well I didn't want to miss any details so this post is a week late in my book. But it's the little things these days, and I'm slowly learning how to "roll with it". Earlier last week, I read a blog post from my friend Stacy at Not Just a Housewife about an amazing non-profit, Every Mother Counts. So I'm dedicating this blog post to them in an effort to raise awareness and help raise … [Read more...]

Maternity Maxi Dress Tutorial

easy to sew Maternity Maxi Dress

Today, I'm officially 38 weeks pregnant. It's really hard for me to believe. My goal this whole time is to get to full term status. Part of me feels like this pregnancy has flown by and the other half of me feels like I've been pregnant for years. I think I'm officially ready for this baby to be here. The nursery is no-where near complete, but since I know he won't be in it for a few months I'm content with what we have completed. Our bags are packed, our home is as ready as it can be (although … [Read more...]

Baby Shower Onesie Station

Baby Shower Onesie Station using Cricut Iron-On Vinyl #babyshower #DIY #Craft #Cricut

I can't believe that our whale themed baby shower was 2 months ago. Week after week I kept telling my self I would share our Baby Shower Onesie Station and each week it kept slipping by the way-side. After multiple people reaching out to me about how I did our onesie station I figured it was time to share with the world. The wonderful folks at Cricut sent me a wide variety of Iron-On Vinyl to help make this possible! Gone are the days of puffy painted onesies. Let's get real--who really puts … [Read more...]

Whale Nursery Inspiration Board

Check out the ideas we have for a whale-themed nursery!

  I'm so excited to share with you our whale-themed nursery inspiration board today. This board has been a long time in the making, and still their are a few elements that are 100% final. Jon painted the nursery last month, and we've literally been working all month and now this month on board and batten. Little did we realize how long it would really take us to complete. Plus, remember we work full time jobs so the only time we have to work on it is after work and on the weekend! We are … [Read more...]

Whale Baby Shower

Invite and Diaper Raffle card created by StockBerry

Two weekends ago, we had our baby shower. A whale themed baby shower at that. For those who follow along on Pinterest--you might have figured out that we have a sea/whale theme for our nursery, and our colors are aqua, red, navy, and white. (Hopefully, I'll be sharing our vision board with everyone next week). I helped my mom plan the shower--she's not a party planner nor does she enjoy entertaining people. We are 100% completely opposite when it comes to that department! The first thing … [Read more...]

Punk Princess Onesie

Punk Princess Onesie 5

Last month, I had the opportunity to test out the new Cricut Iron-on vinyl. Once I learned how to use it I was hooked. I made our friend 3 onesies--in fact it was the way we told them we were expecting a baby. But that's another post. Today, I'm sharing how I created this super cute punk princess onesie. I felt the pink glitter was perfect for this edgy onesie! Supplies: Cricut Mini Personal Electronic Cutter Rock Princess Cartridge Cricut® Iron-on Glitter, Pink Cricut® Tool … [Read more...]
