OMG can’t believe I am seriously 20 weeks pregnant and I haven’t been blogging like I wanted to. Sometimes I feel like the time is just crawling by and then other times when it comes to my blogging and scrapbooking I feel like the time is flying by because I haven’t done half the stuff I have wanted to do. Poor baby is going to have no documentation of being in my belly like I did with Kaiden. Well today was a very exciting day because today we have finally found out what we are having!!! Finally the time has come!! I have had two different chances now to find out the gender and both times my husband wanted to wait so I respected his wishes, well now I can’t wait any longer. With both my two other children I have always found out right at the ultrasound appointment, well this time we were going to do things a little bit different, we were going to have a gender reveal party right after the ultrasound. The ultrasound was scheduled for 4pm, OMG it seemed like the longest day ever, I just couldn’t wait for the appointment. Not gonna lie though, I was a little nervous for the appointment and for two different reasons. 1) I was worried something was going to be wrong with the baby, even though I had felt him/her move earlier in the day I was still terrified and 2) I was scared the ultrasound tech would accidentally tell us the sex of the baby and then everything would be ruined. Well we went to the appointment and everything was great, baby wasn’t totally cooperating so the ultrasound lasted an hour long, my stomach was so sore after we left from her poking and prodding repeatably with the probe so that definitely sucked. It was so crazy to think that we had the results in an envelope right there in my purse, I kept joking to my husband that we should just look! But no, I’m not that kinda person, I like to be surprised, and I wanted to be surprised with everyone else. We went straight to The Cupcake Store by our house and handed the baker the envelope. I had ordered 4 cupcakes and she was going to insert the filling into only one of the cupcakes. I was doing our reveal a little bit different, I wanted only the grandparents to get a cupcake, no one would know which cupcake had the filling, and then they would all bite at the exact same time! Even as we got the cupcakes I was nervous leftover frosting would be on the box or wrapper of the cupcake, I’ve heard way to many stories of people having their reveal ruined and I really didn’t want that to happen to us. We went and picked up the kiddos and then it was straight to my mother in laws for the fun to begin!!
Shopping for maternity clothes can get really expensive, especially when you think about the fact your only going to be wearing these clothes for a couple months. So today I decided to make a video showing you some of my “cheaper” finds! Do you have any great recommendations on where to get cute maternity clothes on a budget? Please let me know!
Labor signs: Better not be having any for quite some time!
For those of you who watch You Tube makeup tutorials you know exactly what I’m talking about…there are certain products that makeup bloggers ALL talk about! I also wonder are they really that great or are all these bloggers getting paid to hype up the product? I decided to test the theory myself when it came to the Beauty Blender. I’ve heard a lot of people say nothing compares to the Beauty Blender but then I’ve also heard people say the Real Techniques sponge is the closest dupe. So I decided to try it out for myself and make up my own opinion. //assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js
Do you hate it when you go to the store and purchase a $30 product only to get home and realize it sucks!!! I definitely do and I love watching other you tubers give their honest opinions about products so today I thought I would share with you some of the products I have recently used up and would I repurchase them again or not! Enjoy!
For todays makeup look I decided to do a really pretty girly spring time Smokey eye using pinks and purples. This look can definitely be worn during the day even though it’s “Smokey” because the use of light colors will make it wearable. As always all products are mentioned in the description box of the video. Hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and thanks for your support!
