I cannot believe I have let over two months go by since the New Year New Room Refresh ended to post this DIY Map Art tutorial! This fun map art was part of my original room mood board and my DIY version turned out so much better than I was expecting!

Walmart Time and Tru Collection: A few faves!

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Hey there! I was putting my little down for a nap this morning and scrolling the internet like I always do when I came across Walmart's website and noticed a banner promoting their new clothing line for women called Time and Tru! Shopping for clothes has kind of been a no go for me lately because we are on such a tight budget. I may find the occasional sale item but getting a new spring/summer wardrobe was really not in the budget- until now! I am so pumped to go see what I can put together for less than $100!

I am all about testing out new topics here on R&R at home recently! Today, I am talking all about gifts for him! I recently had the idea to surprise my husband with a gift for our son turning one as a 'Thank you' for all that he does that has allowed me to stay at home this year! It got me thinking about what to get him? With Easter coming up and Father's Day not far behind I thought it would be a fun time to share some ideas with you for what to put in your man's Easter basket! These ideas can be for your Hubby, Broski, Padre, Gramps, you name it (err.. him)! This is a universal gift guide for any man in your life!

A Birth Story

Monday, March 5, 2018

July 3rd, 2016. I remember the day like it was yesterday. There I was, sitting in my bathroom staring down at yet another pregnancy test. At this point I had probably peed on well over 200 tests (I don't even want to add up how much I spent on those things). This time I waited. I waited the full two weeks. And here I was. The day of my missed period and something felt different. But didn't it always? I was hosting a girls weekend with a few friends from college and had just finished a margarita because surely I wasn't pregnant. After nearly two years of trying I was exhausted. This was honestly the first month that I was too busy to devote every waking second to hoping. My sister was visiting for a month from Mexico and we had two family weddings. So, I was just busy enough to keep my mind off of what I had been hoping and praying for. I assumed it would be another month of no's. But there I was in my bathroom staring down at that little plastic stick watching it saturate. And there it was. The line. It was there. It was clear. I. was. PREGNANT! The next few minutes were a joyful blur. I screamed for my husband and everyone in the house knew what that meant. We both stared at the test, cried and had a private moment of pure joy. I hope I never, ever forget that moment in that bathroom.
