First Order

I just placed my first order for Maternity clothes tonight.. No I do not need them yet.. But I had a couple gift cards to use, they had a good sale, and I had a shopping bug..  
Now Maternity clothes are definitely not the cutest by any means at all.. So I made the best of what I had to work with. But I have to say, I am totally in love with these shorts I chose.  Dress all of these ups with some super cute tops and we are good to go :)  Does any one know of anywhere for cheaper, and brighter colors for maternity clothes? 

2 Pairs of Capris

2 Pair of leggings

Preggie Pop Drops for this girl who just cannot kick this morning sickness.

Southern Belle Scentz

I have never really introduced my business on this page before.  I shut down my blogger business account bc I simply could not keep up with two blogs, orders, and college.  Now I only sell on my web site and off of Facebook.   I sell mostly wholesale but also sell retail.  I have totally re-done my tart scent line for the year of 2013.  Tarts come in a bag.  Each bag contains (2) 1oz soy blend tarts.  One bag of tarts is $1.00 plus shipping.   I use soy to make my tarts because the smell is stronger and they burn clean (no smoke etc).  These can be used in any tart warmer, tea light or electric.  Tart warmers can be found at Walmart, Target,  Scentsy, Etc.  

Scentz List:

Amish Quilt – Vanilla intertwining with cinnamon, clove, allspice, and a hint of sugar. 
Amish Friendship Bread -  Fresh baked bread with hints of raisin, nuts and strawberries. 
Banana Bread - Creamy bananas with nuts.

Cinna Styx – Cinnamon Sticks. 
Cinnamon Raisin Bread- Aroma of cinnamon raisin bread baking.
Colonial Hearth - Orange spice notes from the kitchen, fir and pine, and an earthy smokiness from the fireplace. 
Country Bumpkin – A complex blend of apples, candied yams, marshmallows, sweet cream butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, crushed cinnamon bark and fresh cloves.
Country Gift Shop – Cinnamon Sticks, ginger root, and dried apples mixed with a hint of country. 
Cranberry Apple Marmalade – A luscious blend of tart cranberries and spiced apples. 
Crème Brulee – Classis rich creamy dessert, topped with caramelized sugar

Pinterest Inspiration

When we first moved into our house, it had only 2 bedrooms. My grandparents owned this house before us and knocked out a wall between the 2nd and 3rd bedroom and made one large one out of it.  Since we are know expecting a little bundle of joy we are placing a wall back into the room to make the babies room, a workout room and then on the other side of the house I am going to have my office/work space.  It wont be very large but I would love to make it my own and all cutesy of course!  I love more of the simple look.  Not many knick-knacks just simple to the point with items I will use.  

This is my absolute favorite one.  Grey walls with an accent of black and pink.

Guess who gets to go see Carrie in concert this coming April?

Me!! I am just super excited! I have been DIEING to go to one of her concerts for while now.  My sweet mother in law got me tickets for her April 20th concert here in Jacksonville, for Christmas.  Needless to say my husband isn't super excited about a country concert, but I don't think he will be doing much complaining about seeing Carrie up close.  I mean, what guy in his right mind would complain right?!
