New Life

If you have been following my blog, you’ve seen a previous post about the shower I threw for my SIL and niece.

Well, baby Reign was born yesterday at 6:41 p.m. She weighs 7 pounds 10 ounces. The perfect little size. And she had the perfect little voice and the perfect color. She is beautiful and absolutely perfect!

I cannot wait for my daughter to meet her new little cousin. I hope they are best friends and always stick up for each other and always want the best for each other. Oh, I can’t wait to document their love and friendship over the years.

Anyways, we are beyond thrilled to welcome this new little life to the world! Celebration is definitely in order!

Question.

Do you ever have imaginary, long talks about something you wish you could really say to someone? Like, while getting ready in the morning you have a full conversation with someone very important [the mirror] about something you would like to get off your chest? Oh… yeah, me neither.

Shower in a Box

This past weekend I had the joy of throwing a baby shower for my SIL and baby niece, Reign.

Her mama is a Kate Spade fanatic, and she is going to have the most fabulous nursery. Thus, Abbie (who helped throw the shower) and I decided make the baby shower match her nursery. We used the colors: black, white, pink, and gold. I think it turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself.

All of the decorations we used were quality items, so that Reign could use them rather than just throwing them away. For example, mini diapers cakes, a clothes line of cute/picture attire, a name sign for her nursery, etc. Reign was also showered with so many goodies and everything her little, baby heart could possibly desire.

Abbie and I worked together to throw this shower all via text, and we had a great turn out, too much food, and lots of gifts for baby Reign!  Therefore, Shower = Success!

The Real Reason Moms Get Angry at Their Kids

You thought you were a calm and peaceful person… until you had kids. Now, there are times when you feel you are an angry mom with a few common triggers and you feel guilty. Don’t fret, there’s a big reason many mothers get angry and the solution might be easier than you think. My jumbo-half-full glass of Diet Coke poured off my bedside table… Onto the carpet… And the nearby power strip. I jumped up explosively from the bed, threw my hands in the air, and yelled, ‘Again!!!’ My 12-month-old stood by giggling, trying to eat the ice. The ice that
