Growing up I always had a special stocking that was handmade by someone in my family and had my baby picture on it. It was way too small to actually put things in, but from what I can remember,my family weren’t always big stocking loaders-uppers.

I’ve been wanting a new Christmas tree skirt since we got our 10 foot pre-lit tree from my mother in law 6 years ago. Every year, and especially since Pinterest, I surf the web for tree skirt tutorials. Most I’ve either disliked or couldn’t make a decision on fabric.

It was what… Continue reading Elephant Pillows for little ones!
Thinking I could have a baby any time, here’s how this weekend went down… Friday: Doctors appointment.

We’ll see her again on Thursday,… Continue reading Weekend Recap
