I'm Back!

I've taken a bit of a break lately. We've welcomed our second little bundle of Joy this last April and I'm just now getting back into the full swing of life again. It was a bit of a whirlwind with Ty arriving via emergency c section due to a cord prolapse but he weighed in at a healthy 7lbs 13oz 2.5 weeks early! 

With that out of the way, I wanted to update you on some fun things going on! First up it's Super Saturday. It's only one Saturday a month now so make sure to swing on by and grab the goodies available. Here are a few of my favs that are in the sale this month.
