EASY PEASY! 


I'm mixing up today's Baby Talk with a fun little giveaway!

Another year has come and gone in the blink of an eye. I think New Years is sort of a bittersweet holiday, it's sad saying goodbye to a year filled with memories but is also exciting welcoming a new year filled with so much promise. Overall, 2013 was a great year! We went to weddings, welcomed babies, went on a couple of vacations, had tons of fun and experienced lots of big milestones with our daughter. 2013 also came with it's fair share of challenges and I'm anxious to use what I've learned in 2013 to make 2014 the best year yet!

One highlight of 2013 for me was the revamp of this blog. It was no secret that I was completely uninspired, wasn't loving to blog and was about ready to just throw in the towel. I am so happy that I got through my funk, got a spark of inspiration, and am back to absolutely LOVING this blog again.

My favorite thing about blogging is connecting with people. Especially now that I'm a mom, I absolutely love to get all of your ideas and opinions and read your stories. It's such an amazing community of support and I am grateful to be a part of it.

I wanted to do something special for my readers, since you're the reason I'm still here and still loving this blog. SO, to say farewell to 2013 and welcome in 2014, I am giving away a little gift box of my favorite things as a thank you! Thank you for reading, thank you for following, thank you for commenting and thank you for inspiring me to continue to do something I really love!

So, here's what one of you lucky ladies {or gentleman} will win....
*Smashbox Makeup Bag perfect for your purse!
*Smashbox "Try It" Kit which includes samples of Photo Finish Foundation Primer, Photo Finish Lid Primer, Lip Enhancing Gloss in Illume, Full Exposure Mascara, Limitless Eye Liner in Onyx}
*$5 Starbucks gift card, enjoy your favorite drink on me!
*Comfy pink socks, which I pretty much live in all winter long
*Yes to Cucumbers face wipes, perfect for lazy girls like me who don't like to wash their face
*A pack of 5 gum, the best gum there is
*Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Minis, have you tried these?! So frickin good!
*Aromi Lipstick in Merlot, I'm obsessed with this lipstick! 


All you need to do is use this fancy little tool below to enter & I will announce a winner on Friday!

I don't know how to completely feel about this so I'd like some input from all the mamas out there! I have a son who just turned 18. I am married (not to his dad) and have a wonderful, supportive husband with no kids. I'm 34 (yes, I had my son young) but I'm at a good point in my life (great career, homeowner, landlord) and I am seriously considering having a baby with my husband as he wants kids and I am not against it at all. My OB said I'm healthy and should not have a hard time conceiving (on IUD presently) but I have mixed feelings about such a huge age gap between my son and potential future child. What do you all think? I am super scared about having a child at this age because, as you all know, the older you get, the risk factor for your baby having Downs Syndrome (or any other birth defect for that matter) goes up. Because of my age, that scares the crap out of me. Please be honest as I will not be offended by any comments. I'd just like to know what you all think. BTW, Kristin, Miss Kenley is just tooooo cute!!!
