Catching up

I'm a bit behind on blogging so I though I'd start with last weekend. H and I attended another gala and it was fun to get gussied up again, have a few hours away from the kids and enjoy having a conversation with other adults for a change. I took some cell phone pictures at the even but they showed up blurry after emailing them to myself.

Last week Serena was on spring break so the girls and I spent a lot of time at parks since the weather was nice.

Have a great weekend!

Our gold hearts

I'm so excited to tell you guys that the popular sparkle heart bib from my shop is currently on sale over at Style Lately! The sale ends in 4 days and you can get it for only $9.99 so hurry on over and snag one up. The girls and I (ok mainly me) love hearts and I've been using them in my designs since I first started my business. You can also get the adorable peach gold heart top that I'm wearing from Style Lately. It's so comfortable!
Have a great Monday!

3 on Monday?

Good morning! Maybe I should have left that exclamation out because I'm not that chipper right now. Mariam had a stuffy nose last night so I got only about 2 hours of sleep last night. Ugh! I feel like I was run over by a truck. It took every ounce I had to get out of bed and make breakfast for the girls this morning.
Onto my 3 on Monday. Question mark because I've heard on 5 on Friday but not 3 on Monday, but who says there are any rules? Right?
1. Organic Olive Oil Soap.

Hello! Where have you been my whole life. My husband bought this from a vendor recently and it's amazing! It leaves my skin soft and moisturized after showering and I don't even feel like I need to moisturize immediately like I normally do. It smells like olive oil naturally but it leaves your skin feeling so clean and soft. This particular soap is imported from the middle east but I'm sure most organic olive oil soaps will work just as good. Seriously. Try some. Olive oil is sooo good for the skin and I'm particularly interested in the long term benefits for my skin that I'm going to get from using this soap.
2. Manicures
While I'm a fan of pedicures, I've only gotten manicures twice in my life and up until this year I hardly ever painted my nails. Don't get me wrong I love manicures when I get them, but my nails tend to be pretty decent on their own and the picture above shows you why I normally leave my nails unpolished. Reasons: I sew and I'm a mother who washes dishes. I got the manicure last week and within 2 days the paint started chipping. Lesson learned. I'll save my money unless I'm going to a special event.
3. O My Darling's Blog Giveaway
Are you all on Instagram? if you are head on over to my page @FHJBaby because we are excited to be part of O My Darlings Giveaway for little ladies! Sweet Cassidy and soon to be momma of 2 has reached 10k followers on IG and she wants to do something fun for her followers and new followers.

Nursery Update {Pretty Prints}

I recently bought two prints for the nursery and I'm in love and hooked on gold foil prints! It also makes me happy knowing I'm supporting other small businesses owned by women. I just need to figure out where to hang them.

The nursery is still slightly looking the same minus a few pieces because I have most of the new decor hidden away in a closet. The girls are little cyclones and let's just say I'm not ready for them to possibly make a mess of things yet. My older brother should be coming over within the next week to stencil the wall against the crib and I can't wait to show you all the room once it's complete.

Have a great Monday!

Oh hi. Hello

I haven't blogged in a week which is pretty long for me. Did you miss me? You're the quiet bunch aren't you? That's ok. The truth is I started to blog three times this week and each time I would just say "oh never mind". I've been tired this week. The girls have been tough on me and I've been staying up late every night for the past two weeks. I've seem to have worked myself into an exhausted state and I feel like I'm on a carousel I just can't come off.

Business is booming and this is good, but I'm back to needing to add more help. Finding good help has definitely been challenging since I started this business and have worked with a few people already. Cross your fingers the right person comes along because I could really use it.

Have a great weekend and the shop is currently having a thank you sale. Use coupon code: Thanks25 for 25% off your entire purchase.
