Weekend Unplugged: Cleveland/Helen, Georgia

Spur of the moment and completely out of character for us we decided we needed to unplug from the World this weekend. We loaded up the car before daylight on Saturday morning and hit the road heading North, final destination Cleveland/Helen, Georgia. I lump these two together because in my mind it would be ridiculous to visit one and not the other simultaneously.

Well hello, I have been silent and I think I owe you an explanation. 

Cue explanation...

Surprise! Remember my last Stitch Fix review? You know the one I might have mentioned how the dress Janelle picked out for me made me look pregnant? Well...I was! And I had no idea. Sorry Janelle.

I am currently almost 11 weeks pregnant, and I have been SO SICK. Like literally so sick that you clearly haven't heard from me in a month. Like 24 hours a day sick. Morning sickness does not equal just mornings for those that don't know. Anywho, I was sick when I was pregnant with mini d and I got better around 14ish weeks. Let's all say a little prayer that's the case this time. 

I need to go back to dry heaving my breakfast (you're welcome for the visual), so I hope to be back again soon with lots of baby updates. Oh and some Stitch Fix updates, maternity style. Oh and Disney, of course!

Much Love,

Stitch Fix #6, A Review

I've noticed something in my old age (late 20something), QUALITY MATTERS. There was a time when I could walk in to TJMaxx or Forever21 and stock up on $9.99 clothing. Trends that lasted about a week, and then you were moving on to the next thing. That just doesn't work anymore. Quality matters, and I need pieces in my closet that are prepared to stand the test of time, and motherhood, and work, and whatever else my crazy hectic life throws at them. 

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I LOVE Stitch Fix and the services that they offer. We live in the middle of NOWHERE, and to get to any decent shopping it's at least a 45 minute drive one way. We stay so busy that shopping is nearly impossible. Stitch Fix delivers quality clothing right to my doorstep. I can try the clothes on in the comfort of my own home with the clothing pieces I already own. Not to mention you get your own stylist, which is pretty awesome and something this mommy on a budget couldn't normally afford without a service like this. 

So what is it?

Disney Update: Spring/Summer 2016

We are quickly approaching our Spring 2016 Disney trip!!

I've been over-planning and researching like crazy, per usual. 

That being said, I thought I would compile a list of updates for Spring 2016 for you!

My New Makeup Obsession

Sometimes change is good. I hate to admit this but I have been wearing the same brand of makeup since the 7th grade, which happens to be the first time I EVER used makeup. Bare Minerals has been my go-to forever. I don't like thick/cakey makeup. When mini d watches me put on my makeup my mantra is always {we are enhancing what God gave us, not covering it up}. 

As I have been getting older and well, aging, I have noticed that my face is changing. Makeup doesn't look the same on me as it used to. I NEED to bring youth back to my face. I'm only 26 for heaven's sake! I had all but given up until a Mommy friend of mine started selling Younique makeup.

Adventures in Homesteading - The Chicks

I grew up on a farm in South Alabama, but I can assure you that despite all of the attempts from my parents I was as far from a farm girl as you could get. As an adult I have found a love and appreciation in being able to grow our own food and self-sustain our family as much as possible. This has led us on an interesting journey to say the least. We live in a rural area with plenty of room to spread out. For the past few years we have planted a pretty substantial garden. This year we decided to add to the mix. Introducing our nine newest babies....
