One year ago today...


We went through a long journey to get Macyn in our lives. 

Most of my blogging about TTC and the first half of my pregnancy is now gone unfortunately, but it seems like just yesterday I was wondering if she'd ever appear. 

After begging my husband for another child, he finally agreed I could stop my birth control and see where that took us. After a while I started to become worried because my body wasn't acting normal, and my doctor helped me discover I was not ovulating. 


After my second month of Clomid, and moving in to our home, I was over joyed that God blessed with two pink lines!

We had some bumps along the way, one being a threatened miscarriage, but I'm so glad she stuck around because I don't know where my life would be with out her. 

Macyn brings so much joy this family and she's a perfect addition to our household. 

Our three girls mean the world to us and I can't believe its already been a year since I found out she was growing inside me. She's now 4 months old and 12 lbs, still breastfeeding like a champ, and just tried baby oatmeal last night. 


I look forward to this next year, watching her grow and bond even more with her sisters. I can already in-vision her first birthday and what a beautiful little girl she will grow up to be

Birthday Express Review & Giveaway 6/25


Celebrate Express is a leading catalog and online retailer of party supplies and costumes. We currently operate three brands: Birthday Express (children's party supplies), Costume Express (Halloween costumes for children, teens and adults), and Celebrate Express (year-round party supplies for people of all ages). Our goal is to help busy people celebrate the special moments in their children's lives, and their own.

Birthday Express, our first brand, was built around the concept of offering a complete, accessorized product assortment for children's birthday parties. Now the brand currently offers over 150 children's party themes.

Costume Express offers over 4,000 costumes for Halloween and other year-round costume parties, plus a large assortment of costume accessories and Halloween decorations.

Celebrate Express has evolved from being the parent brand of Birthday Express and Costume Express, to operating as a stand-alone brand that offers year-round party supplies for people of all ages.
Through all three brands, we offer an extensive assortment of products in one convenient location, thus eliminating the time-consuming steps required to purchase products at multiple retail locations. Our ability to design and manufacture many of our own party products enables us to develop unique exclusive items and quickly react to consumer trends. We believe this combination of factors creates a more compelling shopping experience than traditional retail stores offer.

Our brands are sold in over 50,000 retail stores in 42 countries including home & electrical appliance stores, hypermarkets, supermarkets, department stores, convenience stores, DIY, specialty and "green" stores, water specialists & dealers, as well as online and in catalogs.


Jet & Stream Drinks Maker

I am a big pop drinker. So much that I get migraine headaches if I go too long without caffeine. I was intrigued with the idea of Soda Stream because it would be so much cheaper in the long run! Soda pop is very expensive and since I drink a lot of it, I'm finding myself needing to find alternative ways to still have it around, but save us money at the same time. 

I was excited when Soda Stream allowed me to review with their company, and I was sent the Jet & Stream Drinks Maker to try out in black and grey.
