A New Appreciation

As we get closer and closer to move date, our apartment is getting closer and closer to looking like a disaster zone.

Boxes are piled anywhere that doesn’t have furniture occupying the floor space.
What toys LJ has left out are sprawled all over his room and the hallway.
Cooking should be considered an Olympic sport for how many hurdles I have to jump over.
Let’s not even talk about LJ’s attitude. The mess is obviously messing with him.


With all this chaos, I have found a new appreciation for the little things, like clean clothes, a tantrum free day, not having to cook dinner, and my favorite new necklace from my friend Kashoan at Krafty Kash.

How could a vintage dictionary “fashion” pendant not make me smile?

I met Kashoan at CE, and I instantly fell in love with her beautiful pendants (she was pretty awesome too, I guess ;) ). She’s lucky enough to live in a part of this country that’s rich with history, antiques, and all the awesome vintage stuff that LA is simply too new to have :(   My fashion pendant is made from a vintage Webster’s Dictionary….how cool is that?!

Necklace: c/o Krafty Kash, Sweater: Loft, Leggings: Target, Boots: Annie, Belt: Old Navy, Ring: Charming Charlie, Watch: Michael Kors

With all this chaos around me, this little thing is definitely a big thing to me!

Want a beautiful Krafty Kash creation of your own? Kashoan is offering MGR readers 20% off! Enter “FASHION” in the coupon code at checkout. I promise, you will fall in love with yours too!

The Momma Go Round Shop

It’s been almost two years since I opened my Etsy shop, Your Memories Captured. Digital designs and stencils are fun, but they aren’t “me”.

For months, I have stewed over opening a shop that goes along with my blog. Something that’s a little more me. Something that is an extention of my blog and my style.

That is why I am beyond excited today to announce The Momma Go Round Shop!

You may have noticed some of my designs pop up in recent outfits.

Each piece is painstakingly handcrafted by yours truly. If I wouldn’t wear it myself, it won’t be in my shop. I don’t keep backstock, so grab it before it’s gone!

I’d love to have you stop by, take a look around, let me know what you think, and enjoy FREE SHIPPING just for my readers :)   (use code MGRLOVE)

Great Fashion Doesn’t Have To Cost A Fortune {Cents of Style Giveaway}

I swear I have a mild form of ADD. Or at least a severe case of “OH! Shiny Object” syndrome.

My new love for fashion only makes that worse. Cute hat, need that. Shiny shoes, of course. I don’t like this necklace anymore, time for a new one! Yeah I’m that bad…in my brain at least. Luckily, conscious smacks me upside the head and puts a lock on my wallet (most of the time).

Dress: Target, Undershirt: Downeast Basics, Ring: Charming Charlie, Bracelet: Momma Go Round (coming soon), Shoes: c/o Cents of Style

While I’m shiny object about all of fashion, I’m the worst when it comes to shoes and accessories. I always seem to be able to rationalize them cause I can think of soooo many outfits I can wear them with. Sound familiar?

To balance between my shiny object impulsiveness, and my sensible wallet pad-locking conscious, I love finding great, less expensive options. And that ladies, is why I love Cents of Style (cents, get it? haha, I know, I’m a geek).

I was nervous when I first chose these velvet peep toes heels cause cheap shoes and I have a sorted past. Too small, too narrow, and just too cheap. Why not just flush my money down the toilet??? Then Cents of Style taught me an important lesson: inexpensive does not have to mean cheap!

At just $26 these heels are a steal, but they are anything but cheap. I kept marveling and how comfortable they were. How they were actually sized correctly. And most importantly for me, how they were wide enough that my pinky wasn’t screaming at me. I LOVE THESE SHOES!!!

Cents of Style offers all of us fashionistas on a budget so many great options, all with free shipping. Yeah, free….amazing!

I’m dying to get The Stacie turquoise bead earrings for only $8.60!

How ridiculously cool are the Indiya oxford flats??? You can’t get this much style for $26 anywhere!

Cents of Style wants to share some fabulous fashion with you! Win a $25 credit to Cents of Style!

Close To My Heart {Lisa Leonard Giveaway} CLOSED

I don’t think I ever truly understood what love is.

Love is not fancy dinners, surprise vacations, or expensive gifts. Those things are nice, those things are fun, but they are not love.

Holding my hair back when the pickles-french-toast-chocolate-milkshake dinner took revenge on my 5 month pregnant body. Endless backrubs, even when I don’t ask. A little boy asking for snuggles every morning and after every nap.

Hubs and LJ watching the fireworks at Disneyland

My boys….now that’s love.

While I can’t keep them with me all the time, I can keep them close to my heart at all times thanks to Lisa Leonard Designs and my new “My Heart” Necklace.

I met Lisa last March at Bloggy Boot Camp, and I can’t express how sweet and genuine she is. She had no idea who I was, or what my blog was, but that didn’t matter. She sat and talked to me like we were old friends. It didn’t take long to see how beautiful her heart is.

Looking at all her beautiful pieces, you can see her heart shine through them all.

Now Lisa would like to share her beautiful pieces with you!

Hot Summer Accessories {Old Navy}

It’s no news flash that I have a minor obsession with Old Navy. Let’s be real, I’d have an empty closet without that store. And let’s not even talk about what I would have worn when I was pregnant.
So when I got the opportunity to share some awesome Old Navy accessories with my girls, I was in! PARTY TIME!
4 mommas + 5 kiddos + amazing strawberry cupcakes + killer spring accesories = 1 CRAZY PARTY!

It was so fun to try on and mix and match all the fun accessories Old Navy sent us. I’m totally having a scarf moment, so I was in heaven.
I was diggin’ these shades, but they were seriously hideous on me :(  
Score for Ashley!
Can we talk about how ridiculously adorable Trisha looks?
And in true momma style, our fourth awesome momma Gwen had to pick up her little angel from playgroup before I snap a pic of her in the awesome scarf she took home. The life of a momma…
Besides being totally cute, the Old Navy accessories were super well priced! I’m dying to run in and grab some more of their scarves cause they are simply amazing :)   Long, soft, and great colors!
Thanks Old Navy for letting us mommas have some fun!
