• I Heart Etsy!

    The best website out there in my opinion is Etsy!  It is basically a collection of stores that sell any handmade good you can think of.  They have a wedding section, which is amazing, but there are also sections for just about anything you are in the market for.  If you register for a free account you can save your favorite items and sellers for future reference.

    Need a great gift for a friend who is from or lives in Chicago? 

    Go here to Moxiedoll

    How about a great gift idea for a wedding or anniversary? (they also have ones for baby births)

    Go here to Paloma’s Nest (they also have ring bowls for weddings which I LOVE!)
    What about a unique hair piece for your wedding?
    Go here to ClarkandDiversey for amazing finds!
    (the piece above was custom made for me to wear in my own wedding and turned out beautifully)
    How about splurging on a gorgeous custom made dress?  This is definitely on my dream etsy purchase list!
    Go here to sarahseven for this and other beautiful handmade pieces.

    Run over to etsy and start picking your favorites, but be prepared to get swept away by all of the unique, fun, vintage, and lovely items for sale!  You’ve been warned…

    •  We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!

       39 weeks today and you've now been growing outside of my body as long as you were growing inside. And growing, and growing, and growing... ☺️❤️ #quincysweekbyweek #39weeks  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy
