Sensational Finds…. Spin pins, Candles, and Baby makes 3

:Side Note: Today is part 3 of 7 Days of Sensational Finds. These are two products I use all the time and love. Sunday I will post the details to the giveaway so please make sure you check back. If you have any items you think would be a good prize please let me know. I have some ideas but would like to get some others. Hope you enjoy this post. Please subscribe and comment.

Goodie Spin Pins- This is the best invention out, for hair accessories. These two bad boys take the place of 30 bobbie pins, and make it super easy to throw your hair in a bun. I’ve always hated having hair in my face. and now I have a baby that yanks on my hair like it’s his job. So for me, having my hair up is just works. The pins are a corkscrew shape, and come in either regular or short, light or dark. This makes it possible to use on short hair. It may seem complicated but it’s pretty simple to use. What you do is, take your hair into a pony tail (it can be high, low, half-up, loose or tight), wrap it in a bun (make sure your ends are tucked in), screw 1st pin (clockwise) at the top, and then the 2nd at the bottom (making sure you don’t interlock them). There you have it, a cute easy alternative to wearing your hair up. They’re available at all drugstores for about $6

TINDRA MYS Scented block candle red Package quantity: 3 pack  Package quantity: 3 pack

Tindra Candles from Ikea– Whenever I’m home I usually have candles burning. To me it’s relaxing and makes your house feel like a home. I love to try different brands and scents of candles. More so than not, I’m disappointed by something. I tried the Tindra candle from Ikea mostly because they were so cheap. I was surprised to find it’s a wonderful candle. It’s a warm berry scent, that fills the whole room and that’s most important to me. Have you ever brought a candle, smelled it and liked it, then when you get home and burn it, you can’t smell it at all. That drives me crazy. The Tindra candle comes in 6 different sizes. I use the small size in glass, it burns for 30 hours and cost $1.99. After 1 hour your room will smell amazing. Since I’m home all day it’s important that my house feels relaxing and calm. Candles are one way I make my house a home. You might have guests come over after your baby arrives, before they get there light a candle. It will make your home smell warm and welcoming.

Day 2: Soaking Up The Sun

Today is our 2nd day snapping pictures of Baby B to capture the First year of his life.

I think he might be teething because he’s constantly wanting to chew anything. He’s also been a little fussy, so I’m giving him gripe water and that seems to help. I also brought him a new chew toy that he seems to like. I’ve been waiting to buy Sophie (click here to see the worlds most famous teething toy) but I guess I’m going to need it sooner than I thought.

Today the weather was warm and beautiful, so we brought a blanket out and just chilled. Baby B loves being outside! He could be crying and the minute we walk outside he stops! He loved looking up at the trees and putting his little feet in the grass. The first picture cracks me up! What a funny face. What is something you like to do when the weather is warm and beautiful? Please leave a comment and let me know!

Day 1(06) only 259 days to go!

I’ve decided to start taking pictures of Baby B everyday until he turns 1. I got the idea from a lovely girl on the Bump who also blogs (click here to check her out) about her daughter and documents almost everyday with a picture. I’m so excited to add this into my blog as well as my usual blog posts. It’s so important to me to have pictures of our family. I’ve always loved taking pictures so now I have to do it even if there’s nothing special going on. Bobby is already 3 months 2 weeks and 4 days old so we’ve missed 106 days, but that’s ok! We will just start with Day1 to make life a hell of a lot easier.

We continue to have an obsession with anything that goes in our mouth! For now we stick with teething rings, hands, and frozen banana’s. We broke out his walker a week ago and he’s okay with it for about 5 minutes. His feet don’t touch the ground, but I know once they do it’s off to the races. Everyday is something new, and he totally has stolen my heart!

So I know it was picture heavy next time I promise not as many! I hope you all are having a great week! Please leave a comment or subscribe I would love it ❤

Score At A Consignment Sale

This past weekend we went to the Lil’ Angels  Consignment Sale and brought some much-needed toys, books, and a couple of sleepers. I volunteered last sale they had, and was able to shop first which was great since they sell out of everything fast. So when I heard they were having their spring sale I decided to volunteer again. They had so many great items clothes, toys, books, strollers, pack n’plays, high chairs, and so much more. Friday evening we backed up B and headed to the sale. We found a couple of toys that light up and make noise which he really loves.

I’m the most excited about the Tiny Love mobile that we scored for $18.00. He loved mobile that went with his bedding set, it cost $45.00 and broke after a week. It was cheaply made and needed to be wound up every 5 minutes. I was searching online for a different one for him and saw some that were pretty awesome. I’m so glad I didn’t just buy the first one I saw, because I saved myself some money. As soon as we got home I ran to put the mobile together. It wasn’t the easiest thing I’ve done, the directions were somewhat confusing. After a good 30 minutes I managed put it together, and B loves it. I knew he would.

Anyway we had a wonderful time finding new things for B. Next time I will probably try to sell some of the things that the baby doesn’t need anymore. So here are some pictures of the thing we scored. All together we spent $45.00, the mobile alone would’ve cost about $30 brand new so I’m happy!

Hope you have a sensational day!

B is 2 months old!

The past 2 months have been life changing to say the least. Time is flying by so quickly, I have to remember to slow down and enjoy the little things. Some people dream of being a doctor or singer, I have always dreamed of being a mother and a wife. I know that may sound silly, that being my only dream but it was. I had an amazing mother to aspire to be just like, sadly she was taken away from our family 15 years ago but I strive to everyday to be half the mom she was. I’m trying to enjoy every smile and sound, and not wishing him to grow up too fast. B is a wonderful boy and handsome like his dad. He’s starting to get this little personality and laughs at the funny faces we make at him. Thankfully he’s started sleeping more at night, we do our bedtime routine at 8pm and he’s usually asleep by 9 o’clock and won’t wake until 4am to feed. After he eats he’s back to sleep until 8am when we get up for the day. Right now I’m lucky because I’m able to stay home with him. I’m hoping to be able to be a stay at home mom indefinitely, but we’ll have to see once the summer is over. B is going for his 2 month shots in the middle of this month, so I’m sure that’ll we fun! Right? We went to our local consignment sale last week and scored an awesome mobile, some toys and books. I’ll be doing a post to show all his goodies. I’ve lost all the baby weight, so now I need to tone up which will probably be the hardest because I hate working out. I feel somewhat like myself just tired. I’ve started a daily schedule for myself and baby. I couldn’t watch another day of trash t.v anymore. We did B’s 2 month photo shoot and wanted to share some of the picture we took!

I have a couple new posts planned so look out for them. If you have any request or ideas please share!

Have a sensational day

Baby’s 6 Week Update

My handsome little monkey has turned 6 weeks today and he’s just amazing. I’m totally a new parent because everything he does is just so wonderful, and I’m loving every minute of it. I have never been so tired in my life, I think my body is getting used to not sleeping. I have always liked to sleep in, and God only knows the last time I got 8 hours of straight sleep. I now know why they say “sleep before the baby comes”, you would have to sleep for a full month to be rested enough to not feel tired. My eyes literally burn when I wake up, but once I can finally see what I’m doing, and see my little man looking at me I know it’s all for a good cause! We are currently co-sleeping, which I never thought we would do. The first couple of weeks he slept better in the bed with us, then in the pack ‘n play next to the bed. We went and brought a travel crib that we keep in the middle of our bed, and made as safe as possible. It has walls so neither of us can roll over on him, and Diva won’t try to bother him. You’ll always have these big opinions when your pregnant, and the second that baby is born you will do whatever you need to make him as comfortable as possible. So don’t be hard on yourself if things don’t go the way that you planned. Babies are so unpredictable, you have to do whats best for the family, and not care what other people think!

We are still breastfeeding, which I have become very fond of. I have put so much effort into breastfeeding, so giving him formula just isn’t what I want to do. If he are out at the mall, or at his Grandmom’s then we’ll give him formula only if I don’t have anything pumped for a bottle. Even then I hate giving him the formula because I know he’ll spit up so much more than he usually does. Doctors say that if you can breastfeed for 1 year that would be amazing for baby, but how realistic is that? I’m not sure how long I will be able to be a stay at home mom, if later on we need the money then I’ll go back to work. We’re going to try for 6 months and see how that goes, I have been pumping and trying to stock pile but we always end up using it. Bobby has become so alert, he has a great friendship with the ceiling fan. He smiles at us, makes the cutest baby noises, and tries to stand up while we hold him. In a nutshell he’s amazing! I haven’t been blogging too much lately but I’m going to try to do something at least every other day, even if it’s just a quick thought or picture. Oh and by the way, Thank God it’s SPRING, this chick is ready for some warm weather!
