of Prego friends or family members so
I am always looking for fun, cute and unique baby gifts

Yes, If you cannot tell by my past pinterest posts 
I have a bag obsession

But who doesn't love this one
am I right? or am I right?
That is what I thought

Fun, Big, Stylish and PRETTY!
What is not to like?
I know you want one too

I really wanna try to make one
wish me luck if I fail 
who will make it for me?

What a fun party
I think I am going to use the red and white theme
and party ideas for a fun
Summer Family picnic just Ty, Maddux and I :)

How fun would that be?
Get some Izzy soda
red and white paper straws
Eat on the ground on a blankie or on a picnic table

Maybe grill some hamburgers and hotdogs
Make some smores 
play some games
Perfection :)

I have been in love with the scrabble letter trend
and always have something 
spelled out in scrabble letters in my decor

But THIS...
This is amazing
I want to do this so bad
If I ever have a playroom for my Maddux and future kiddos 
This is going in there

How fun is this pillow?
I love it for the fourth of July 
But I would also love to leave the blue square out
Change the colors and it could be an everyday
Cute ruffle pillow

She has an awesome tutorial and 
it actually doesn't seem too hard
and I am not a pro at sewing that is for sure

Ok this is one of those knockoff tutorials 
that I just see myself making one day

It is beautiful and so much cheaper than the original
You could make it in any color you want
And believe me everyone would be asking about 
your shower curtain
I know I would if I saw this 
in my friends house :)

Do you love Board and Batten as much as I do?
My future home will have this in it
and if for some reason it doesn't
then this is a fab tutorial to do it yourself

And it isn't hard
and it isn't expensive
and it is oh so beautiful

Love love love this picture
I love the pose
I love the color
the lighting
the clothes 
and I don't think you need to be pregnant to do it

So when I get my pics done we are so trying this one out 
Can't you just see how in love they are
My favorite part is him kissing her on the head
I Love when Ty does that
So cute
I am so intrigued by photography
It is so beautiful
I am hoping one day to get more into it 
I gotta find some classes
If you know of any let me know.

My hair is about this short
Hopefully for not too long
I want it to grow soooo bad

But anyway I am lovin this style
I tried it today in fact
I am not a hair stylist so it doesn't look perfect
But it turned out pretty cute
    Maybe I'll take a pic of it

now....who would like to do my hair like this for me
for my family pictures in July?
