Hair Care

okay ladies.. I am looking for a new shampoo and conditioner. My favorite is Enjoy but it is so hard to find and when I do it is quite costly. What would you recommend? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
On another note, Halloween is in 2 days and I can't wait to take the little ones out. Nova decided to be Cinderella and Giada is going to be a cowgirl. Giada of course is just along for the ride but Nova will have a blast! I can't wait to post pics of their costumes! I usually make Novas but this year she picked a costume that she has 3 of so why spend the money:)
 Happy hump day!

Project lamp shade

Yesterday I went to Michael's looking for something to spruce up my 3 year old's  lamp shade in her bedroom and was able to find the perfect thing! The best part was it cost me a whopping $1.50.!

This was exactly what I was looking for only I thought I was going to have to glue. This was adhesive so it was so easy. Here is how it turned out.

This second picture was how I was attaching it. Yes there is my little helper in the background. Like I said it was super easy and only broke the bank $1.50. Happy hump day!

Our Arrival

I have finally gotten in a routine with the new baby and the little one so I am able to actually sit down and write on here without being distracted. Lord knows how long that will last! Our beautiful baby girl arrived on July 17th, 2014 at 8:16p.m. I barely made it to the hospital so unfortunately I wasn't able to get any drugs. Here are some pics of our new family member: Giada Leeann

Our computer is acting up so I haven't been able to download all the photos we have of her. Once I get the computer fixed, I will definitely add more!

On another note.. I am glad to report I am enjoying having my wine and I didn't realize how much I really did miss it! I am really excited that in the next two weeks I will be able to get my jogger and start running with the girls. The hubs is so busy with work and classses that it is hard for me to run when he is home to watch them so I have only been able to work out in the house. I am 5 pounds away from my pre pregnancy weight but my goal is 15 pounds. I will try to keep you posted on that as well. I have been looking into a lot of supplements to take while on this journey but can't find one that I am comfortable with yet. Omni nutrition, Advocare, or just the old fashion way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I hope everyone is enjoying the weather change. I love this time of year and can't wait for it to cool off just a bit more. These 90's are just killing me.

Happy Monday!

All the 3's

There are a lot of 3's floating around today. The little one is turning 3 next week and I just can't even believe it! She is growing and learning things so fast I can hardly keep up! I am 33 weeks today! Yikes! 7 more weeks and another beautiful little girl will grace us with her presence:)

This was last Sunday at 32 weeks. I love being pregnant (most of the time) but I gotta say I cannot wait until she is here, I can have cocktails and wine again, and start losing this weight!

I scored really big at Babies R Us today between gift cards and money that was given to us, I was able to get 3 big items at 30% off! That gave me money to spare...whoop whoop. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Bedroom (s) Redo

Happy Friday! Like promised.. I know it's a little late... I finally downloaded the pictures of the girls' rooms that we redid. The first room is Nova's. We decided to get her a "big girl" bedroom set and give her whole nursery set to the new addition:) Here are some pics of her new set.

You will have to excuse some of the mess. We had just put everything back in er room and did not have any shelves or anything up yet. She use to have carpet in her room. We pulled that all up and added the wood flooring and Oh.My.Gosh is it so much easier to clean up!

Next are pics of the hubs redoing the nursery furniture. When it was in Nova's room, we bought the furniture the dark cherry wood finish. Since the new baby is getting it, we decided to redo the color of it and paint it white with the Tiffany blue accents.

Then of course, I didn't want carpet in the new baby's room so out went the carpet.

And in went the wood. The wall color on the second picture looks different then the first pic. The first pic is what the color really looks like. Then once the hubby finished redoing the baby furniture in it went.

Now I'm just working on ordering the bedding and getting the little details handled. With just under 3 months to go, I am really trying to get the small details handled.

Here's a pic of my little dancer. She will be three in less than 2 months and boy does she have personality:)

 Have a great weekend!

Week 24 and more..

Well almost to 25! Woo whooo!

Don't get me wrong...I don't mind being pregnant...but I am ready to meet this little one! I am really struggling missing my wine but I will get through just like I did the last one. Finally got my maternity sesh booked! And now trying to find the outfits I want to wear is gonna be a struggle. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here in Vegas and I am soaking up every little bit of it.

The other little one, well she's not so little any more since she will be 3 in June, is starting to REALLY show some personality. And by personality I mean terrible threes! We are doing our best at trying to figure out the right way to show her good vs. bad and what not but IT.IS.EXHAUSTING. We finally finished most of the projects we had going on in the house and I will try to upload so pics in the next couple of days to show the new baby's room and how we changed up miss Nova's room.

I do have one question before I go, does anyone have any good tips on reupholstering dining room table chairs? If so, I'd love to hear!

Past the half way mark and feeling ready...

It's been a long time since I posted. I am now at 21 weeks preggers and am feeling great! We have a LOT of shenanigans going on around here  and I don't even have my normal computer hooked up to post any pics. I will do that once it's connected. If you know me you know that I am a girl who loves her afternoon cocktails and wine and am really struggling with that during this pregnancy. But I know it will come soon enough so I am just trying to enjoy it while it lasts. I read a lot of blogs and articles about fitness and weight loss and am already eager to lose weight. Of course, I can't yet but I am hoping that this could be a sign that I will be extremely motivated once the acrobat that's in my belly shows her beautiful face! Oh, did I just say she.... yes another girl...yikes! Help me now! I have the perfect cure (wine) for dealing with two girls after everything is said and done.  That might put a little damper and losing the baby weight fast but I feel confident I will stay head strong and focused on how I will feel once the weight is gone. Happy Hump Day!

12 Weeks and the toddler

I am at 12 weeks and 3 days today. FINALLY not feeling nauseous! I didn't have that with the first so that was a huge adjustment for me. I am having a hard balancing being pregnant again and handling a 2 1/2 year old. Even though I stay home, I feel like there is so much to do and by the time I get done working out in the morning then attempting my daily goals and playing and teaching the little one all day, I AM DONE by the time 3-4 o'clock rolls around. I am really trying to find my inner spunkiness (is that a word?) to help with the rest of the day. As for working out and running, the doc gave me the ok to keep doing what I am doing until told otherwise. I put in 5 miles today plus a workout and about an hour after working out my arms felt like they were going to fall off. I haven't gained any weight yet but I know that won't last long. My intention is to at least get me arms in shape and keep my legs decent that way I can bounce back a little quicker than last time. I am glad the holidays are done that way I can focus on all this other stuff . Hope you all enjoyed the holidays!

 Happy New Year!
