January 24th, 2012

I know I’m a bit late with this seeing as how we’re already more then half way through January, but better late then never, right? :)



If you’re interested in the rest of our photos from December, go here.

And yes, we have been taking photos still for January. I just haven’t had a chance to post them yet.

Friday Font Fanatic, Vol. 29

January 20th, 2012

I figured I’d pick a font to honor our trip to Idaho this week. Here’s a snippet of the Idaho State Song in CK Woodsy.

You can download the font for free here!

Have a great weekend!

23 Weeks Old!

January 18th, 2012

Hey y’all! Another week flew by! I swear he’s gonna be one before we know it.

Sam really is doing great. He’s such a happy baby. I love making him laugh. And all the cute little noises he makes. Even when he farts. Who woulda thought all that would be so dang cute?!

He’s officially transitioned out of his swaddle! I know I kept asking, how is the transition made? Well his swaddle was in the laundry so I put him in a sleep sack and haven’t looked back. I do have to make sure his nails are super short at all times or he’ll claw the crap out of his face though.

He’s started sleeping longer stretches at night too! He’ll wake for the last time around 10pm (sometimes it’s 8pm) and then not wake up until sometime between 6am and 9am. It’s awesome! Although now that I’m writing this I’ve probably jinxed it but that’s okay. We’re gonna mess up his sleep schedule tomorrow anyways when we leave for Idaho.

Sam’s also starting to roll over more and more. I’ve even seen him roll from front to back a few times. And he seems to be trying to crawl but can’t quite coordinate it all. He’s got his legs going but doesn’t get that he needs to push up with his arms at the same time. I give him a month and he’ll probably be crawling all over the place. I guess it’s time to childproof the house!

My aunt requested a picture of Sam with his giant teddy bear since the weekly photos on here make it hard to see how much he’s grown. I thought it’d be fun to share with y’all as well.

Look how tiny he was at a month old! He’s so big now!

Pinterest Addict

January 16th, 2012

Hi, my name’s Jenn and I’m addicted to Pinterest. Pinterest is now officially in my rotation of sites I stop by at least once (who am I kidding – it’s probably more like 10 times) a day!

I love seeing what people pin and I love pinning things myself. It’s way better than just bookmarking things in your browser. I don’t know about you but whenever I got through my bookmarks I never know what they are (granted, I’m too lazy to rename them at the time of bookmarking) without clicking on each and every bookmark. Pictures are so much better!

I figured I’d share a few of my favorite finds with you today and feel free to follow my boards if you’re a Pinterest addict too!


(This was from Etsy but is no longer on there)




See why I’m addicted? Delicious recipes, lots of DIY ideas, cute prints, crafty-ness and lots more! Seriously go check it out! And if you need an invite let me know.

What do you use Pinterest for and are you an addict like me?

Friday Font Fanatic, Vol. 28

January 13th, 2012

Today’s font was chosen in honor of my big Sis, Sarah’s 30th birthday tomorrow. I can’t believe she’s 30! She’s a great sister and and even more awesome friend and I’m so thankful that she lives in Austin too. I don’t know what I would have done if she hadn’t moved down here 5 years ago. (I may not have stuck around long enough to meet my wonderful husband! So thanks Sar!)

It’s called JI Balloon Caps and can be downloaded for free here.

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope no bad luck comes to you this Friday the 13th!
