5 on Friday

1. I confess . . . I went 9 months without trimming my hair and this past Tuesday I finally went. Yikes! Why do I always wait so long? It was so needed and I feel so refreshed. I need to stop being so cheap and start pampering myself a little more. 

2. I confess . . . I'm in desperate need of a massage. My back and neck from breast feeding, looking down constantly at my precious baby and the lack of ab muscles from my pregnancy and c-section have really taken a toll on my back and posture. 
Maybe I'll treat myself to one for CT's birthday. I'm sure he will love that gift!  

3. I confess . . . I get excited to change a diaper these days. 

How can you not when it looks like this? CT and I have begun cloth diapering while at home and when we are out of the house for short periods of time. Things are going great so far and I love keeping those pennies in our account!

Plus, look how cute he is. Our chunky monkey in his farm print! Love it!! 

4. I confess . . . pumping to build up our milk freezer stash is exhausting. So far we have about 200 oz in 8 weeks but my goal is 500 by the time I go back to work in 8 weeks. I better get off the pc and go have a date with my double electric. 

5. I confess . . . I'm super excited to complete my first 'girl' puff quilt for a customer. Coral and mint looks so pretty together! 

If you are new stopping by - thanks! - but I hope you'll stay longer and follow along!

Fall Fashion: Boots

My favorite part of fall (besides my shows which start back up this week) is the fashion. Scarves, jeans, hoodies and boots. I have a few pairs of boots that I've purchased more than once because when I wear them - I realllly wear them. I've also had the heals on those boots replaced because like I said, I really wear them. 

Check out these beauties that I'd love to have join my closet. 

1. TOM's look alike Bootie  
super comparable to TOM's but half the price. Check them out - there are SOO many different colors.

I love this Cognac color because it would go with everything. Everyone needs a pair of shoes in this color - flats or boots. 

3. Combat Boots
My little sister has been all about these boots. They are super cute on her and all her teeny bopper friends and I'd love to own a pair but I'm unsure if I could pull them off. 

4. Camo Combat Boots
I've been obsessed lately with styling Kingston in camo - but I've realized it's totally a unisex pattern and girls can pull it off just as well. 

5. Quilted Boots
Love these!

Who knew Amazon sold such cute stuff at super affordable prices?

5 on Friday

I love these types of posts because it's a time where I can get totally random and just spew whatever is on my mind! 

1. If anyone knows me or follows me on Instagram, you know that I love to 'craft'. I dabble in just about any and everything. Right now I'm obsessed with accessories for my little man. Check out what I've been working on this week. 

The top two bandana bibs are going out to a lucky little fellow but every bib I make for someone else I make one for Kingston too. Win win! Also, I upcycled this children's place jacket into a vest. I found it at a consignment store for $1.50 - cut off the sleeves, took a blade to it and added a little bleach! 
So cute and so trendy! 

2. This year I'm planning on making most of my Christmas gifts (if friends or family read this - act surprised when you get them!). I might as well put my craftiness to good use and save a little money. I'm thinking jewelry, scarves, candles . . . who knows! 
What handmade gift is your go to? I can always use new ideas. 

This is one gift I made - a hand embroidered monogram necklace. 
Think about all the different possibilities. 

3. The countdown has begun. I'm anxiously awaiting next Thursday night - Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder.
 Check out what else I'm watching this fall.

4.  CT has his first home football game tomorrow. Fingers crossed that Kingston has a better second half then he did at his last football game. He gets super fussy when he's tired, but I'm not complaining because when he does sleep he sleeps for 7+ hours (at 7 weeks - go BabyWise!). 

5. I officially have two months left on maternity leave. It's crazy how fast time is going by. If only I could be on permanent maternity leave and stay at home with my baby forever. *sigh* A girl can dream. If you'd like to help me accomplish this goal - check out my Etsy shop. 

I'd give anything to stay at home with this cutie all day every day!

Kingston's Closet - Crushin'

Just a few items I'm crushin' on for Kingston's closet.

Etsy has some really fun graphic tee's for the little ones and I'm trying to decide which one Kingston needs first. Santa needs to hurry up and come because my wallet can't handle all this cuteness. 

Help me decide - which is your favorite?
