Watching | TV... What's That?!

Lets talk about my DVR for a minuet.

Shark Tank. Ellen. Undercover Boss. The Kardashians. 
Celebrity Wife Swap. Modern Family. Shipping Wars.

All my guilty pleasures, exposed!
And in no specific order.
Multiple episodes of all sitting on the DVR, that's how often I watch TV these days. 

Reading | Toddler Books. 

Don't knock them, I've always had an absolute love for children's books,
and before buying them to grow my little man's library,
I would buy them for my husband. 

You know the lovey-dovey ones. 

Right now our favorites have been:
-Pete The Cat | The Wheels On The Bus
-The Berenstain Bears | Big Honey Hunt
-And The Train Goes
-Good Night Daniel Tiger

Listening To | My little man telling me everything he "has to have." :)

Working On | My Etsy Shop- Simply Sweet Prints

Seriously a never ending, work in progress!
I absolutely love my little shop, and it's been so amazing 
to see how much it's grown in a little over a year. 

There is so much competition, and some days I feel as though
I'm listing items that no one will ever see.

Other days I create something new, and it's an instant favorite, 
and I just know there are others out there that will love it just as much as me!

I plan on growing this little business of mine,
until it can be a steady source of (second) income for my family.
Until then, I will keep plugging away! 

The key is staying positive and motivated, in this and any business!

Feeling | Ready for summer!

Although the days of 100+ degrees are here to stay in Arizona until, 
oh... probably September, 
there is just something about the summer. 

Pool Days. Running In The Sprinkler. Outdoor Concerts.
Sunshine. Ice Cream.

You just find the times during the day where you can enjoy being outside, 
and you go for it!

All the other times of the day, you sit inside, and enjoy the luxury of
air conditioning. :) 

Planning | My Sister's Baby Shower

I was over the moon excited when I found out my sister was pregnant.

Honestly, one of my first thoughts after "OMG I'm going to be an Auntie!"
was "OMG I can not wait to plan her baby shower!"

It's at the end of the month, and it's going to be perfect!
All things sweet and girly!

My mom and I have been planning, shopping, and crafting for it,
for a couple months now, and I can not wait 
to see it all come together!

Loving | Life

Okay, cheesy answer, yes. But seriously.
Life with my amazing husband and my equally amazing little man
is simply the best.

I truly feel blessed to wake up each and every day to this life. 

My days are filled with more joy, laughs, and smiles than I ever
thought was possible.

Time goes way too fast, against all my wishes,
so I'm just making sure to take in each and every day,
and each and every moment. 

My Favorite Photo:

Almost every day, or morning I should say, is a pool day. 
Welcome to Arizona summers.

I took this one the other day to send to Daddy, and my heart melted.

And, yes... he is always this happy! :)

Make A Mess | May

Thank you to all that stopped by 
to read about my April Messy Box by A Beautiful Mess.

It was one of my favorite post to date, 
due to the fact that I love to craft, and crafting supplies is one of my love languages! 

(Next to coffee and cozy sweatshirts... obviously.)

So, I'd like to say Happy June 1st, 
by sharing my May's Messy Box

This was my third month receiving the Messy Box subscription,
and I'm still totally hooked!

This month's theme was centered around
celebrating the color of life, and included:

3- "9x12" Scrapbooking Papers (Single Sided)

"6x12" Alpha Letter Set

Especially with it being summertime, 
I am loving all of the bright colors this month! 

Die Cut Banners

Chipboard Shapes,
and a HUGE bonus... they are adhesive! 

"3x4" Happiness Is, Stamp Set

"1 Yard" Of Black & White Stripped Ribbon


Although I most likely won't use them for crafting, and instead insert them
into cards I send back home,
I think I was most excited about these little cuties! 

Seriously, such fun colors! 

6- "4x6" Journal Cards (Double Sided)

6- "3x4" Journal Cards (Double Sided)

12- "3x3" Journal Cards (Double Sided)

So, there you have it!

Just like my past two boxes, I am extremely impressed
with the products and quality, and already can't wait for this month's box!

What did you guys think about everything that was included 
in May's box?!

Have I convinced you to add a messy box to your life yet?!
