The Either/Or Baby Hat

Hey y'all!  I hope you've all had a great week!

I'm in the homestretch of this pregnancy and have been trying to get everything ready for this little one's arrival.  I've also been taking more time to rest too, so I've been working on different little craft projects that I can do while sitting with my feet up (I've got major swelling going on).  So I decided, what better way to do both than to crochet a baby hat?!  I had one problem though, I don't know if it's for a boy or a girl!

So, I had to come up with something that would work for either one.  I already have a green hat that I made when Fletcher was a baby, and I'm gonna use that, but I wanted a hat made just for this baby too.  I also wanted to use yarn I already had.  I got rid of a lot of yarn when we moved, so this limited me big time!  Fortunately I had grey, and that's what I started with.  I completely made this up as I went along, but I have to say it is one of my favorite hats that I've ever made!

Introducing, the Either/Or Hat!

Wish Wednesday

Hey y'all!  It's Wednesday and I have some more Wish reviews!  

In all honestly, I didn't buy either of these from the Wish app itself.  There are several shopping apps associated with Wish that carry items in more specific categories.  For example, the first item I'm reviewing today is from the Mama shopping app.  That app is geared more towards items for babies, children, and their caregivers.  The second item being reviewed is from the Home app which is aimed at, you guessed it, home items.  There is also the Geek app which carries more tech type items.  The thing is, both of the items in this review can also be found on the Wish app, as can most of the items on these other apps.  That's why I'm including them in a Wish Wednesday review.

As always, I am not associated with the Wish shopping app (or the Mama, Home, or Geek shopping apps).  I have not been compensated in any way for these reviews and all opinions are my own.

Trailer Remodel: Master Bath

Hey y'all!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I'm back to share my favorite part of our trailer makeover, the master bath!  There is an easy project anyone can do at the end too!

This poor room had been badly neglected.  It was the only room in the house that had never been painted or anything.  I didn't get great before pictures, and it was a hard room to photograph because you entered through french doors right in front of the vanity.  To the left was the shower/bath combo, and to the right was the commode.  These pictures were taken after I had started clearing the room for work.

My New Blue Freezer!

Hey y'all!

I hope everyone has had a great week!  I have a project to share with you that I am SUPER excited about, my new freezer!

I've wanted a deep freezer for a looong time, but in the trailer there just wasn't the room for one.  So when we moved, a freezer was at the top of my wish list!  Me and Jason had been debating our options for a couple of months, when our new neighbors offered to give us their old one for free!  I couldn't believe our luck!

Here's the finished product.  Keep reading to see how we ended up with a blue freezer!

Wish Wednesday

Hey y'all!

It's Wednesday again, and I'm back to share some more of my Wish app purchases with you.  These two things are especially special because they are sewing related.  There are a ton of craft supply items on Wish.  I wish I could just buy it all, but alas, I must control myself, even at these prices!

I just want to point out that I am not associated with the Wish app in any way.  I paid for these items and the following opinions are my own.

The first craft item I received were these clips.

Trailer Remodel

Hey y'all!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  In my post a couple weeks ago, here, I briefly mentioned a little of what I'd been up to in my year long blogging absence.  Of all the projects I did last year, remodeling our home was definitely the biggest!

I wanted to try and tackle this in one post, but I think I should break it up into a few installments instead.  I do have a baby on the way, so I can't make any promises, but I will try to do an installment a week until I cover the whole thing.

So, for this post I'll tell you a little about our (old) home, and share one small update I made.  As I also mentioned in the post linked above, we sold this home after the remodel.  When I started working on it though, it was not definite that would even be an option for us.  I just knew, stay or sell the place needed a face lift!

Wish Wednesday

Hey y'all!

It's Wednesday, and as promised I'm back to review some of my Wish app purchases!

These are items I purchased and I did not receive anything to write this review.  I am not affiliated with Wish in any way, and all opinions are my own.  I just want to share my experiences with you. :)

The three items I'll be reviewing today are all sewn items.  One is a dress, then a nursing bra, and last a nursing cover.  I have mixed feelings about these items, as you will see, but overall I am happy.

First up, the dress.  Here is the listing.

Our Newest Family Member

Hey y'all!

I hope everyone has had a great week!  Monday I officially announced on here our upcoming baby!  I had wrongly titled that post Our Newest Family Member  when, either way you look at it, this is our newest family member.

Wish App Review

Hey y'all!

So, I decided to try out that Wish app!  For those who haven't heard about it yet, it's a shopping app for your phone.  There are all sorts of items for sale and they are priced REALLY low.  Like $1 low for lots of things.  The catch is that everything ships from China, which takes a while, and the quality of the items isn't always the greatest. I had been seeing it advertised on Facebook, but it had a lot of bad reviews and comments. I wasn't comfortable shopping from a company I wasn't sure I could trust, but once my brother and my aunt had both told me they used it without incident I decided to give it a try.

So, I thought I would review the app and some of the items I've ordered so you can decide if the app is right for you!  And just so you know, all opinions are my own and I have not received anything for this review.  I'm sure the people over at Wish don't know me, or this little blog, even exists.

And Baby Makes Six

Hey y'all!

So, I mentioned in last week's update that I was expecting another child soon! I thought today I'd go into a little more detail about the news.
