Plate to Pixel

I've always been a bit of a frustrated photographer. There are few thing I appreciate more than a beautifully captured photo, yet I struggle to capture those perfect images myself. Maybe it's just my perfectionist nature, but I get aggravated when my pictures don't look comparable to the pros. For my 30th birthday last month, my parents gave me a … [Read More...]

Stargazing with the Escambia Amateur Astronomer’s Association #brandcation #gulfcoast

We live out in the country where the stars are beautiful on a clear night. In spite of being surrounded by their beauty, I've never been very interested in astronomy until spending some time with the men and women of the Escambia Amateur Astronomer's Association. Their knowledge of the skies is amazing and their enthusiasm contagious. The members … [Read More...]

MOPS Meeting and a Blue Bunny Giveaway – Ends 5/31

Winner: Kathy P. Friday was a bittersweet day for me. It was sweet because we enjoyed a mini-spa day and Blue Bunny ice cream, but a little bitter since this was our last MOPS (Mom's Of Preschoolers) meeting of the season. I'm going to miss the fellowship and support of this wonderful group of women, but at least we have a few playdates … [Read More...]

Are you Crafty?

Are you crafty? I am in my heart, but the actual crafting process has come to a crawl in the wake of motherhood, pregnancy, and blogging. Still there are a few things I occasionally make the time for like digital scrapbooking, making bird's nest necklaces for baby showers, and crocheting play food for Sweet T. Factory Craft Direct supplies busy … [Read More...]

Tommee Tippee Giveaway – Ends 5/24

We joke that Sweet T has a drinking problem. She's practically a camel! It's a good thing she only gets milk and water at home since she's probably drink even more if soft drinks, tea, and juice were available all the time. We received a set of Tommee Tippee Explora drinking cups that have a 9oz capacity. Since we were using a small 6oz cup for her … [Read More...]

Cleava Snap-to-Bra Cami Giveaway – Ends 5/21

Conservative best describes my fashion style (ok sloppy best describes it now that I'm a mom, but you know what I mean) and I'm happy to have found a product that will help with my cleavage-phobia. I've never been one to "let it all hang out" so fortunately when I was a teen it was popular to pair a tank top with low-cut or button-down shirts. … [Read More...]

Back from #Brandcation on the #gulfcoast

There was food, there was fun, there was fatigue! I don't think I've keep such an intense pace of activity since before I was married. At 21 weeks pregnant, I'm proud of myself for keeping up! Over the next two weeks I'll be documenting each adventure in it's own post, but first I want to take the time to thank some of our amazing … [Read More...]
