Throwback Thursday...... Evan Lilly's Nursery

I love to decorate!!! Putting together Evan Lilly's room was so much fun. I am going to post pictures that I took before she arrived. It looks a little different now as it starts to transition into a toddler room, but I thought this would be the perfect post for another throwback Thursday!

These pictures are making me teary eyed! I can't believe my baby will be 15 months next week!

My hospital bags were packed and ready to go!

It's sad but I think her closet and drawers have tons more in them now! 

And now, I am thinking when Evan gets up from nap I am going to give her room a deep clean and organize! YIKES! Everything was so put together....nesting for sure!

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at Evan Lilly's room BEFORE she was born! I am planning to do some work to it this summer and I'll do another post in the fall so you can see how its transitioned!!!

Five on Friday!!!

This week flew by and I feel like there are many exciting things happening right now!

I created a summer bucket list for Evan and me! I thought of some fun things we can do together while daddy is at work and some fun for the family on the weekends. I am planning to add more to the list but it's a good start!

We created a blanket fort this morning and E absolutely LOVED it! We will definitely have to repeat this one.

I have started a new business venture with a company I am extremely passionate about, PLEXUS!! Plexus is a health company that offers ALL-NATURAL products to improve your health. Today I wanted to share with you what I am currently taking, Plexus Slim and the Accelerator. I decided to start taking these products after another mama friend told me about the extra energy she felt after taking them. I have felt very sluggish lately so I decided to give it a try and WOW what a difference! After becoming a customer, I decided to become an ambassador for the company.

Here is just a quick run down....Plexus Slim works to balance your blood sugar levels which improves your health with lots of positive side effects such as healthy cholesterol, burns unwanted fat, reduces your cravings, and much more! The accelerator is a companion to Plexus Slim and it increases your energy, curbs carbohydrate cravings, improves mood, and helps amplify the metabolic process to name a few.

Throwback Thursday...Maternity Pics

I thought it would be fun to blog about things that happened before I became a blogger. So here is my first Throwback Thursday!! Today it is all about my awesome photographer, Deanna Green! Chris and I married in 2004 and our wedding pictures were terrible!!!!! When I found out I was expecting I immediately started researching photographers. I saw a picture of a friend's newborn baby girl on Facebook and I was sold with Deanna. I booked her when I was still early on in my pregnancy. I was nervous about doing this but she was booking up fast. So, I hired her for my maternity session and the seedling package. The seedling package gave me sessions for Evan as a newborn, 4 months, 8 months, and 1 year. She specializes in maternity and 0-12 month pictures. I am just hoping we are grandfathered in so I can use her for future family pictures. So here is a sample of our maternity pictures. Enjoy and definitely check out her website here!
