This week/weekend has been so crazy packed that I couldn’t even fit into one post. Well, at least not one post anyone would read. Wednesday, the 16th Hudson turned 1! This is baby #3 for me and I swear that with each kid, time just keeps going faster. I don’t know how we got here […]

This is sponsored post, but all ideas, images and opinions are 100% my own. I was lucky enough to get a box of Martha Stewart Crafts for some holiday crafting. I was most excited to work with the decoupage. I have heard rave reviews from some of my blogging friends and couldn’t wait to get […]
