Easy Chalkboard Sign


The easy chalkboard is good to have around for any occasion! It's well worth the few extra dollars spent for the primer. Since I already had the chalkboard spray paint hanging around from last year's Halloween project. 

All you'll need;

A board to use (I got this from thrift store for $1)
Chalkboard Spray Paint
Primer Spray Paint
Sand paper (from dollar tree)




// Sand the board
// Wash it lightly and let it dry for one day.
// Spray with primer, let dry for another day. 
// Spray two or 3 times of chalkboard paint, and let dry for one more day. 


Then write whatever you'd like!

Baby Sprinkle Ideas

Good morning! I am 24 weeks today!

baby is the size of an Ear of a Corn. 


I couldn't get a good picture of myself today, but next week I'll have one!! ;) 

As we bring the last week of August, I decided to share my ideas for my baby sprinkle! 

So I have had this planned since FOR EVER. I got the idea off of, where else, Pinterest!! I knew I had everything from Josiah so I didn't really need the big items that you normally get your first pregnancy. BUT this time I'm having a GIRL! AND who doesn't LOVE to shop for a girl!! 

I had just posted my Baby Wish List when I got mostly everything I needed for this baby. Not exactly what I wanted but, it's PINK! LOL  (I will post an update on everything I have soon!)

I have noticed it is not as uncommon as I thought it would be! Even Babies 'R Us, has Baby Sprinkle Ideas on there site. The point of the Baby Sprinkle is a lighter version of the "Baby Shower". For repeat mother's that have everything on the traditional baby registries and just want to have a gathering for little things they may need for the pregnancy or baby. They are becoming very popular for second and third babies.




So these are the ideas I got off of my Pinterest board. I was having two of my best friends throw this baby sprinkle for me, BUT I didn't want to KILL them with my demands! So I'm throwing it myself. I'm doing EVERYTHING. and that may seem like too much, but I love the idea! 


the Drink station is a must! ; 

This drink station is perfect.

I love this too!

5forFIVE









It always seems like Monday is right around the corner! BUT today I'm actually excited this Monday, because I'm off tomorrow and the next day! It's MY weekend! 

http://www.thestickynoteaddict.com/2014/03/5-for-five-volume-52.html

1. WALK AROUND THE BLOCK 4X

2. DON'T EAT OUT ALL WEEK 


3. NAIL POLISH RACK


4. SEND BACK VERIZON PHONE


5. SEND BACK BOOTS TO MACY'S


6. GET A PLANNER!





1. SET UP HOOTSUITE - I need to make this a priority! My social networking skills are horrible! 

2. FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO PRINTABLES (FOR MY BABY SHOWER) - I really don't want to pay someone to do these. I know exactly what I want so I just want to figure out how to do it myself! 

3. NAIL POLISH RACK - I'm officially over it! HAHAHA I'm giving it to my friend's boyfriend today and he is going to make it for me!! Hopefully it'll be done by next week. I've got to get these polishes from out of my closet!  

4. DO AT LEAST 1 THIRTY-ONE PARTY A WEEK - I already have one before August ends. So my goal is to have at least one a week. And I mean online parties LOL since my fear of speaking in public hasn't changed yet! 

5. DRINK LESS CAFFEINE (1 cup/soda per day) - I'm not sure if this has anything to do with how baby girl is doing flips every night in my stomach but I sure hope to end that! 

6. CALL MY CASE WORKERS BOSS - I'm in the process of phone tag with this lady now. It has been three weeks since I've been trying to get in contact with my case worker for medicaid and it's starting to get very frustrating!!!

7. START MY MEAL PLAN TODAY - Me and Tay tay have a weekly planner for our meals. I am very excited to see if I can actually stick to it! I may even have a post up about it! 


I can't even believe I did almost everything on my list! I couldn't help but to eat out because it was my 27th birthday! 




//  It was healthy though! But my snack the movies later that night wasn't so much. LOL you can see what I did for my birthday weekend HERE

//  I haven't gotten a call about bringing my phone back, so I'm keeping it until they say something. I'm pretty sure that I don't have to send it back anyways. So I making that GREEN this week because It won't be on my list anymore!!!! 

//  Instead of just walking around the neighborhood.. I take Josiah to parks, Busch Gardens, and the Zoo. It keeps my active and moving. It's far more interesting then just a walk around the block. I am counting down the days where I'm back at the gym doing Zumba and the running on the treadmill !

//  I mentioned last time that I got a planner on Etsy. Well as it turns out, I found one in the store that was just the right size. So I bought the one in Walmart instead. But I'll still be keeping and eye out for another one. I started selling Thirty-One so maybe I can get a new Fold -It up Organizer.

Baby Girl Nursery Inspirations

It's going to be really hard to try to make a "Nursery" because the kids, no matter what have to share a room. But this is basically my wish list no matter what!

Since I found out that I'm having a girl I have been going crazy online searching for everything! It's not just me either. All of my friends and family are doing the same thing. I'm so blessed to be pregnant and to have it a girl is even more a blessing!!!  ^_^

Having a boy first is my excuse for wanting everything in pink this time around. I mean everything! the darkest pink you can find. That's what I want!

We did get a used crib for Josiah, but he never slept in it. This time SHE WILL ! Of course when she is 0-6 months she will be sleeping in my room, so therefore I want a pack n play with a rocking seat. When she becomes 6 months, and no longer fits in the pack n play rocker, she will be going in this crib.








Seeing as how I'm trying to get baby to sleep by herself. I'm hoping that the night light will help. And since they have to share a room, maybe it'll help both of them sleep ALONE!!! Josiah has one of these, so I'll have to get the Minnie Mouse one for her since I do want to keep some sort of a theme going. Like I said in the Baby Girl Wish List, I do want the Minnie Mouse play yard! 



Dream Lites Disney Minnie Mouse Night Light - Walmart





This Alphabet wall Décor is a must! I have been wanting it for a very long time, it's so cute and goes perfect with any theme! Like I've said before, her and Josiah will be sharing a room, so this is perfect for them both! I've been keeping my eye out on Etsy, and this is the cheapest around.
