Pictures at the park

I love Stripes!

I want to paint stripes in my stairwell.
Vertical gray ones.
It will be fabulous. Just you wait and see.
When I finally stop putting it off, it will be great.
All of the other stairwells will be jealous.

Here is a cool one, though I am not brave enough for orange.

CSN Stores

Have you ever heard of CSN Stores?
They have over 200 online stores where you can find everything from kids’ swing sets to stylish furniture to cute cookware!
I have been given the opportunity to review a product from their site!
I don't know what it is yet, but as soon as I get it I will let you know what I think.
Then, in a couple months we can do a giveaway!
Aren't you excited?! I know I am.

It was such a nice weekend.
We spent some time at a wonderful park together and enjoyed the sunshine.

How to make a stenciled onesie.

What you'll need:
1. Freezer paper
2. A plain white onesie
3. A stencil of your choice
4. Fabric paint
5. A paint brush or sponge
6. An exacto knife
7. A piece of cardboard that fits the inside of your onesie.

Step One:
Place your stencil over a piece of freezer paper and cut it out with your exacto knife. I also used a circle cutter to make a circle around mine.

Step Two:
Put the piece of cardboard inside your shirt and iron on the stencil (glossy side down) in the correct spot.
Make sure all of the edges are ironed on really well.

Step Three:
Paint the stencil with your fabric paint.

Step Four:
Let dry.
It will take a few hours for the paint to dry completely.
I sped up the process with a hair dryer.

Step Five:
Peel off your stencil and tada! Look what you just made!
Easy as pie, right?!

They're goals not resolutions.

I'm not a big believer in resolutions but I am in goal setting.
So here is my list of things I would like to accomplish in this coming year. 

1. Spend as much time with baby as possible.
2. Read more books.
3. Be more crafty and reteach myself how to sew.
4. Finish the nursery. 
5. Be more prepared.
6. Take more pictures.
7. Plan family vacations.
8. Further my photography business.
9. Keep a cleaner home.
10. Loose this baby weight!

All of these things are very obtainable.
Writing them down may be the motivation I need to get some things done! 
I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

7 1/2 weeks!

Our sweet boy is getting so big!
He is officially in 3-6 month or 6 month clothes. Sizes vary, which is annoying.
But he is cuter than ever and we are so happy to have him!

Things we are learning:
Leaving him to go to work is hard, but we all are handling it well.
The cuter the outfit, the bigger the poo explosion.
Once he grabs onto something, he doesn't let go. This includes my hair.
A cold baby is not a happy baby.

We love that his sweet smiles are becoming more frequent!
