Matching Girls <3

I made me and my girls matching Christmas Grinch shirts. I love Patterns for Pirates! I made myself the Relaxed Raglan and O the Jolly Rodger Raglan. For Allie, I made a doggy scarf.

Mommy and Me Aprons

I have recently taken up sewing.  This is my first project completely solo and it turned out beautifully! Couldn't be more pleased with our cookie baking day aprons! I also made Allie a matching bandana!

Made my own Leggings

I recently took up sewing and made my own leggings! I got the pattern over at Patterns for Pirates. It's called Peg Legs. Go check it out! I used double brushed poly and they are super soft!

I can't wait to make matching pajama pants for us all this year!

Princess Poodle

My first baby is almost 8, but still my little spit fire princess poodle.

Freakshow Mommy Juice

I'm truly loving Red Blend wines and popcorn these days! I tried Freakshow Red Blend on Halloween and it was really delicious. It is more of a dry red which I am apparently really falling in love with these days! My glass was a gift from a friend and obviously my go to for the Halloween season.

Green Pineapple Smoothie

This is my favorite recipe for a smoothie. Green smoothies really help me lose weight and feel amazing. Not to mention the skin benefits! I followed this recipe and added 1 Tbsp unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar. I used fresh spinach, frozen pineapple, frozen avocado and maybe 2 cups of water. Enjoy!
