Secret…

I have been a Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant fan for years now… I actually started using it around the time Jeff and I started dating because I couldn’t stand to feel like I needed deodorant or that I was going to get nervous or sweat… I hate that feeling! I was so excited when Secret reached out because it is a product I already use and love! Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid goes on smooth and dry, and truly keeps me dry and smelling fresh all day, and I don’t have to reapply or worry about sweating. I am constantly on the go and have a tendency to put myself outside of my comfort zone often which can work up an unexpected sweat. Especially with my job as a celebrity hairstylist, the last thing I want is to be up in their faces smelling horrible or feeling sweaty.As many of you know I just had my 5th baby 4 months ago in march- I am super proud of myself for being consistent in picking back up with my BBG workouts since my baby was 6 weeks old, and I have lost all but 5 lbs of my baby weight from doing it. I am not trying to be a super athlete or have the perfect body, I want to feel my best both mentally and physically, if I am being honest- I am not one who likes to work out AT ALL- so being disciplined with my workouts and forcing myself to make the time and get it done even though I do not want to makes me feel extra strong mentally… it helps me remember that I can do hard things. I love that I was able to partner with Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant- located at CVS.

Our Favorite Carseat

This Cybex Sirona M Carseat is seriously high tech! Not only is Scotty super comfy in it, it features state of the art sensors that alert me on both my phone and from a receiver my car. It allows me to be worry free and hands free while I’m driving. This has all the things I look for with both safety and comfort. As a busy mom of 5 I dont want to worry about any added things like if my 12 year old buckled the car seat correctly while helping me get out the door in the morning.

 

we love our Cybex Sirona M and I love that she can face forward once that time comes. Thank you Kindly cyber for sponsoring this post!

“There’s Certainly a Santa” with Hallie & our Date to Dear Lizzie

So, Hallie has been asking all the Santa questions and I was hoping to get just one more year out of her believing in Santa, but she knows about the “insert swearword” elf on the shelf, (heres the link, if for some reason you want to torture yourself by getting one…lol) But back to the point, She was asking all the questions and I wanted to make it not so disappointing somehow…

Then I came across this amazing book, “There’s certainly a Santa,” which was written by my cute and clever friend Chelsea Rippy. So, I told her I had a secret to share and I was taking her on a date. We hit up a favorite girly girl spot (Dear Lizzie) for a treat, we love the “dizzy lizzie” drinks, and their desserts…ahem…coconut macarons for the pregnant lady. I gave Hal the book, she wanted to read it herself. I was so nervous… But all in all it went well! (see short clip of her reading the book below) She was obviously disappointed but she said she kinda knew last year, and she’s glad to know the “Super Top Secret” and is excited to be Santa for someone this year!

Then we shopped and enjoyed all the cute trinkets in the store and just had a nice time chatting and making sure she was okay with the new info! She loved the experience and I will do the same for Ty… in a year or two. He’s 9 and still wholeheartedly believes! Its so sad when kids grow up, but this book made the magic of Christmas stay and now Hallie gets to be a part of it!

Get 15% off “Theres Certainly A Santa” here, and make breaking the news a little easier on your mama heart! Happy Thanksgiving!!!

 

Outfit Fav’s from Poppy and Dot

There is a super great online shop that I love. It’s called Poppy and Dot. They have tons of dresses, cute tops and darling booties. I’ve recently got some great additions to my closet from there and I wanted to share.

This is such a great casual outfit. I especially love the layering look with my baby bump.

This is a super fun dress too. And ultra comfy.

The detailing on this dress is gorgeous! Isn’t it a great color for the holidays?

And one of my favorite Poppy and Dot pieces:

This is such a perfect LBD. This would be a great piece for all of those holiday parties.

Shop B Darling Collaboration

Oh my HEAVENS, I have been so excited to show you all this amazing wallpaper from Shop B Darling It is 100% removable and totally damage free, which I am so excited about. I also love that you could put it in a rental, and take it off when you move! My little girls room is coming along, my entire house was put on hold when I had my last babe (who is now 3.5… yeah… its taken me a minute) But I honestly am the worst at accessorizing in a home… its just not my “knack” so until someone tells me what to put I just have nothing on shelves/walls/etc haha. but this space is coming along great!

 

Oh and I JUST had my carpets cleaned and look at that fresh spill of who knows what… couldn’t get it out before the photographer came… bleh.

I love this letter board for a reasonable price from Hello letter boards the owner is a friend of mine and they are awesome! It comes with letters, but I did buy the Heidi Swap Gold letters from Hobby lobby. can’t find the link to them sorry!!!

pillow shams and cases are a year old from world market, but I found similar colors here. I get asked about their beds all the time, they are just IKEA Sundvik beds, they go from toddler length to a twin sized.

Rug is from target (I also love this round one!) We got this teepee at From The Avenue for Christmas last year, we LOVE it! The girls spend so much time in here all year!

“Little Ladies Live Here” sign from Jaxon Blvd $40

For real the wallpaper from Shop B Darling just made the entire room, I love it every time I walk in and I love that it can grow and change with the girls!

 

Love you all!

Boy Baby Shower

I wanted to do two posts, one for the girl and one for the boy shower. So here is everything from the boy shower. I hosted this one at my house.

By the way, if you are eyeing my wallpaper, it is from Brewster Home Wallpaper.

Guys, Zurcher’s really knows where its at. They always have such good party supplies, and they did not disappoint for this shower. I got my banners, flags, and pom poms there. How do you think it turned out? I was really happy with the end result (although I gotta say sorry about the lighting, all of our windows are west facing, so the lighting isn’t the best). Doing showers for boys can be a little bit more intimidating for girls because sometimes they don’t have the same products for boys as girls, so I was happy with the options Zurcher’s had. I actually took the white from this shower and was able to reuse it for the girl shower.

Girl Baby Shower

I threw two baby showers a few weeks ago. I thought the end result was awesome! This was the first shower for the little girl who is coming to town.

We got the white and pink balloons from Zurchers. I tied them onto a long piece of twine with string, and it was super easy and made such a fun look! And the darling letterboard is from Hello Letter Boards and you can check them out here on insta. The gold letters came from Heidi Swapp. Darling gold sign also from  Zurchers. Thanks to Zurchers for the party decorations! And I have to give a huge shout-out to my sister Cass made the adorable cake and my mom who did the equally cute diaper cake.

This was the girl shower, and stay tuned for the boy shower! Coming up next.

Front Porch Fall Makeover

You might have seen on my insta, but here is my front porch.

My amazing friend Shalana from Robinson Cottage Collection came to help me out. Go check her blog out. She is seriously amazing and she worked all of her magic right on my front porch.

Before & after!!! I asked my dear, talented friends @shalanarobinson & @gentryrobinsonfilms from @robinsoncottagecollection to help me with my porch… they just came over (took over bc I am pregnant and lame) and worked their magic! I literally cannot take credit for one thing on my amazing porch and I’m OK with it! Head to their blog ! Love you gals! @robinsoncottagecollection

The process was super amazing. We wanted to start with a lot of materials so we had a lot to choose from. My car was bulging.

We had branches all over the inside of the car and then had to strap them to the top of the car.

Shalana put some nails all over to get the branches up everywhere.

They took burlap straight from the barn and wrapped it around the chair cushions. So ingenious!

All of the little details turned out so incredible to make the whole things look so great!

 

Shalana and Gentry, you two are miracle workers! <3 xoxo.

 

Gender Reveal!

Hey guys! If you are following me over on Instagram, you probably saw that we have some exciting news! We are expecting our 5th baby in March!

I have three girls and one boy, so I reeeeaaally wanted to add another boy to the mix. Guess what we are having?

 

We are having a GIRL! I guess we are meant to be a family with LOTS of estrogen. 

We tried something new this pregnancy, I used a test called Sneak Peak Test. You guys! This is so cool! It is an at home test that you use that predicts gender. You can do it at 9 weeks, so you don’t have to wait as long as an ultrasound. It was super easy and the results came back so fast, I would totally recommend it.

You take the test and mail it back and then they email you the results. I was able to find out in 24 hours! It was really convenient and so nice to know the gender so early on in the pregnancy. 

And I am still in need of baby products that you guys recommend. Anything you can’t live without? Put it in the comments below!
