Free Printable Mother’s Day Card

Have you ever seen the meme on Facebook that says “when your mom deserves an island but you can afford a candle”? It makes me giggle but it’s SO true! Moms really are the best! I don’t feel like there’s anything I could do to show my mom just how much she means to me. I made this free printable Mother’s Day card so that maybe you can put your $5 toward a gift instead of a card (why are they so expensive now?) for your awesome mom!

Married Single Mom

I haven’t blogged about deployment at all, to be honest I don’t even really talk about it to my family and friends all that much. About 90% of the time I’m fine but at the same time it’s always a thing. He’s always not here, it’s always in the back of my mind. Recently I read this article and realized that being a married single mom is totally a thing, a thing that happens to apply to me. My husband left half way through my pregnancy and got to come home for about 3 weeks after she was born to which I realize I’m luckier than a lot of military wives. However, he won’t be home for good until sometime this summer which means for over half of the first year of her life I have been/will be a single mom even though I’m married.

Five Things to Put in Baby’s First Easter Basket

It makes my heart so happy to get to do an Easter basket this year! I didn’t really get excited about this past Christmas because I was still in a sleep deprived haze of the newborn stage that all Cora Beth got was a Cuddle + Kind doll that I didn’t even wrap (opps) and forget about Santa! So I’m definitely putting together my baby’s first Easter basket! Of course she’s not really excited about it but I am!

DIY Simple Baby Bow Headbands

I won’t lie, one of my favorite things about being a girl mom is the outfits and the bows! Just give me everything pink and girly! While I don’t put a bow on Cora Beth every day (mostly because we’re hanging out in our pjs 5 out of 7 days a week) when I do I have to use headbands since little miss doesn’t quite have a whole lot of hair yet! And if you’ve shopped for bows you know they can get pricey pretty quick! I did buy one white and one black bow from Baby Bling Bows because I love them! But they can look a tad big on her little bitty head so I sometimes opt for a smaller bow! I set out to make my own to save a little money and since I was successful I wanted to share with y’all how to diy a simple baby bow headband for you to make your little one!

Cora Beth’s Birth Story

I wanted to take the time to write Cora Beth’s birth story. I know as time passes the details will start to slip from my mind (especially since I was foggy from magnesium). My sweet girl entered into the world in a way I really couldn’t have imaged that she would and to be honest most of the prayers I prayed for her birth went unanswered. However, at the end of the day I had a healthy baby girl and for that I’m so grateful!

Cora Beth’s Nursery Reveal

When I found out I was pregnant one of the things I was really looking forward to was decorating the nursery, especially once I found out we were having a girl! I love how her room turned out and it’s probably the only room in our house that I consider “done”! I had so much fun crafting for her room and my sister-in-law made her quilt and bed skirt (which is adjustable)! So prepare for picture overload because I’m just a teensy bit proud of it!
