Herbalife Collagen Beauty Booster: One Week Results

I think most people have a trouble zone, an area that just isn’t quite where they’d like it. For me, it’s my MumTum – and although I know it could be worse and that it’s grown my babies, I hate it. And I’m allowed to. No apologies. It grew my perfect babies who I love and wouldn’t trade, but dammit….I’d still like to improve what I’m left with. You can see exactly where I grew them and where my son…

Doll Quilts with #AveryLaneSewing and the #BrotherInnovis ~ #thesearethedays #sewingfun

I think I’ve overestimated my sewing skills. Seriously. I had the bright idea to use this adorable coordinating fabric set for an 18″ doll quilt. In fact, so bright was my idea that I cut enough pieces for THREE quilts. THREE people. THREE. I typically do projects with a reasonably high margin of error. I have bad sewing habits and am not nearly as detail oriented as I ought to be, but I have been determined to change this. And I…

Scarlet and Gold #givegrace #companiesthatgiveback #payitforwardfriday #adoption #infertility #thesearethedays

While I wasn’t the girl who got pregnant on the first try, and Brooklyn is actually a Rainbow Baby, I can’t even pretend that I know what it’s like to struggle with infertility. And although I was adopted and have seen many lives blessed through adoption, I do not know personally what that actually feels like. I can imagine and think I come pretty close to understanding, but ultimately I don’t know. But I will always support those in their efforts to expand their family.…
