My 1st Mother’s Day!

Being a mother is the most magical thing in the world.  Life get’s so crazy with a baby in your life but I couldn’t imagine it any other way!!  I was so excited to celebrate my 1st Mother’s Day this year, which also happened to be Ella’s 8 Month B-day.

Sunday Sessions

I am going to start this new piece on my blog called Sunday Sessions.  Welcome to my first one!  We are less than 3 weeks till it’s “officially” Spring!! YAY

This is my new piece where I will dish a little bit about myself: maybe something that inspires me, something that makes my life a little bit easier, something that I am currently drooling over (probably a pair of heels), or just another photo of my baby girl, that I am obsessed with.  Sorry I won’t kill you with that.  I do enough of that on Instagram!!

Right now, I am currently in love with inspiring quotes.  I find myself  scouring all over Pinterest lately, searching for the best Boards and Pins!  Here are a few gems I just found! Follow @Beauxoxo 🙂  Here is their Wise Words Board I’m loving.

What’s your favorite piece of advice that keeps you inspired and moving and motivated?  I’m finding that as I am experiencing being a new mother, trying to be a better wife, making time for myself, and working hard for that next big break at work, I need to keep the positive thoughts flowing through my mind.  How about you?

Check out my Inspiration Board too!

Nail Trends- Shades of Gray

I paint my nails 1-2 times a week.  It’s one accessory that I always have to have on, even if it’s nude.  This weekend I was at Target in hopes to find a deep emerald green color, but no luck.  Russell was with me, so I said, “which one do you like?”  He picked out a very lovely grey…of which I had never tried before, so I bought it.  The color I am wearing is Impeccable Greys by Maybelline Color Show.  Just perfect…neutral..deep charcoal…and perfect for every fashionable outfit.  Give it a try.  What do you all think?
