Happy 4th of July Week, everyone! Emily is going to be hanging out with her family at the lake, and Ashley is spending her 4th of July in the Bay with friends. What do you have planned? Regardless, we will all be shopping because there are so many fantastic deals.
I’ve been religiously shopping on Ebay for three years now, and because we partner with them so frequently on the blog, I wanted to talk a little bit about my experiences and how I make the most of everything Ebay has to offer.
As many of you know, I had a baby two weeks ago. I decided when I had her that I would give myself two weeks of living in leggings and loungewear – before trying on my jeans – and before I actively started trying to losing the baby weight. I wanted to make sure I wasn’t putting too much pressure on myself, and I wanted the leeway to just appreciate all the little moments at home with her.
It’s been a week an a half since we brought our sweet Caroline home from the hospital. As any new mom will tell you – it hasn’t been easy, but it has been SO worth it. We are more in love with her than we ever could have imagined – and she truly is such a little angel.
This weekend it really dawned on me how little time we have left as a family of 4 – or 5 – if you include our dog, Henry. 🙂
We spent the majority of our time this past weekend readying the house for our newest addition, snuggling all together in our bed, and celebrating birthdays with some of our favorite people. However – everything right now is difficult. Sleeping, breathing, carrying my kids, bending over to put on my shoes – all of these things are getting increasingly difficult. Some are next to impossible. And all of these things are constant reminders that our little girl could join us at any moment now.
That being said, it’s time to get back to business and to talk about something that has been much requested around here lately.
