Where to Buy Maternity Clothes That Don’t SUCK! 

   At first, I really didn’t want to buy maternity clothes. At all. The thought of not being able to fit in any of my own clothes wasn’t a happy one.  I kept picturing the clothes my mom and stepmom wore when they were pregnant when I was younger and no. Just no. I’ve got…

What’s in My Hospital Bag?

   I’ve seen this shared over, and over, and over, and OVER. But guess what? I’m going to share it, too!     While most of these posts are all the same, and trust me I went through close to a hundred of them, I found one or two new things on each one.  Now you…

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes

My boyfriend has a serious love affair with Reese’s anything. Reese’s candy, ice cream, cookies, shell, all of it! So sometimes I’ll make these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cupcakes for him when he’s having a cheat day, and he always eats them ALL. I’m not a huge fan of Reese’s, but this peanut butter frosting is…

Crawfish Beignets 

Ok. It’s my favorite time of year.  CRAWFISH SEASON!!!!! Unfortunately I can’t partake in any of the festivities for about another month (come on baby squirrel), but I did want to share this AWESOME recipe! I’ve made these at a culinary competition and for catered breakfasts, and they are always a hit! There are never…

Preggo Power Smoothie

 It’s THIRSTY THURSDAY!  But I’m still pregnant. So instead of one of my favorite yummy summertime cocktails that I’m currently dreaming about, here’s an awesome smoothie I’ve been drinking during my pregnancy! It’s packed with all kinds of good stuff you and your baby need; calcium, vitamin c, potassium, fiber, protein, and antioxidants! You can…

DIY Maternity Sash

  Before I was unfortunately put on bed rest, we had an appointment for a maternity shoot! I was so excited and spent HOURS AND HOURS pouring over Pinterests for ideas. One of my favorite ideas was the cute little sashes a lot of women had as props during their shoots! I looked on Etsy, and…

Adult Minky Blanket

You know that super soft, cuddly, awesome material everybody makes baby stuff out of?? Well who says it can’t be for grown ups? My mother endowed me with a serious love of blankets. We got the for Christmas, birthdays, whatever. You can NEVER have enough blankets. Anyways, I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby that…

Adjustable Crib Skirt

NINE whole months of pregnancy, and I still haven’t found a crib bedding set that I like. We’re doing baby squirrel’s nursery in a Marvel superhero theme, but I didn’t want a super busy pattern like I saw on Etsy. I was getting seriously discouraged. Then I saw this wonderful post on Pinterest I swear…

Swaddle Blanket

One of the first things I made after I got my new sewing machine was this adorable swaddle blanket!        This is also the very first thing I sold on Etsy! But I guess that’s really only exciting to me 😜 The project was a little daunting at first, but after a little trial…
