Lexi's Nursery

My daughter's nursery is finally finished.  
You might remember me showing you a preview of her bedding here
Well, here is Lexi's parisian themed bedroom...

Vinyl letter from DecalMonograms on Etsy.  Great to work with!
My Ikea frame that my mother's WONDERFUL boyfriend picked up for me.  He went 25 minutes out of his way to get it.  I couldn't be more excited about it!

My wonderful mother took my son's old mobile and turned it into this beauty. LOVE IT!!

Mini tissue poms are on top of the candlesticks I scored from Marshalls (love that place!)
Picture is from Farmhousefive Art for Kids. 

The reading nook.  Don't you love that chair!  I found it at TJ Maxx last week!  

The A on the top shelf was made by my BFF!  It is perfect on that shelf!
Oh, BTW, the shelves are from Kohls and came with levelers on the brackets.  
This made my hubby very excited!  He hates to hang things!

The dresser/ changing table and gorgeous mirror I also scored at Marshalls!

I am looking for a vinyl phrase to go over her closet, I just haven't found one that I LOVE yet.

Well, that's Alexis' nursery.  I am so thrilled with how it came out.
Hopefully she loves it too!

Have a great weekend!

Shopping at Walgreens!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don't know how many of you shop at Walgreens, but between their great sales and register rewards you would be foolish not to.  We are regular users of Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products Wal-Sporin (comparable to Neosporin) and Wal-Phed PE (comparable to Sudafed.)  These products are usually $2 or more cheaper than the national brands.  They also contain the same active ingredients that the national brands contain. I always buy store brand products because why spend money when you can keep it in your pocket!

Walgreens carries many products including Allergy Relief, Cough and Cold Relief, Pain Relief, First Aid and many more.  Just think, all these savings without having to cut coupons or search the weekly circulars!

Also, and important fact - Did you know that purchasing Walgreens Brand Health and Wellness Products support bringing preventive services to your LOCAL community through their Walgreens Way to Well Fund™?  That's right, local community!   So you can save money, receive quality products, and give back to the community!  That is just awesome to me. Walgreens will donate up to $3 million annually to the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.  To learn more, log on to

Many bloggers are offering Walgreens gift card giveaways giveaways through June 30.  So hop on over and enter their giveaways and then use that winning gift card to purchase your Walgreens Brand Health and Wellness Products!

Wonder Pets Birthday Party!

My son had his 2nd birthday a few weeks ago and we did a Wonder Pets theme.
The party stores don't really carry anything Wonder Pets and I didn't want to order plates and things from an online store, so I used this Etsy shop.  She has also done a Wonder Pets party for her son.

Here are some pictures...
The cupcakes that my mom and I made

A mini fly boat with a wagon I had from a doll when I was little.

 The flyboat cake that my wonderful best friend made.  
Luckily I had the Wonder Pets figures from one of my son's toys.
 The goodies pails for the kiddos.  
Since his birthday is in May, I found some Easter items (chalk, bubbles, suckers, and balls) that weren't "Eastery" on sale so I picked them up for his party.
I just printed off the logo from Nick Jr's website.

The Ming Ming crudite

The weather was looking dicey, so we set everything up in the garage.

 The birthday boy.

The happy family!

We made capes for the kiddos out of plastic table covers and then glued the logo on the back.

It was a fabulous party!!

Where have I been?

I know, I know, I just get going on my blog posting away every other day or so, then I disappear.  
Well, this time I have a great excuse.  My little princess has arrived!
Alexis Savannah arrived May 25 at 9:25 pm.  She was 8 pounds 6 ounces and 21 inches long!

 Little fingers...
 Little Toes...

We are still finishing up her nursery.  Since there was so much rain in April and May we weren't able to get everything painted so we are finishing that up and then I will show it off!

Have a great day!
