I don't know about you, but I don't like to buy special occasion clothes and shoes. I just don't like spending money on items that I'll only wear once or twice. I also haven't worn heels since being pregnant, so I thought I'd repurpose a pair I already own. I'm a bit behind on this DIY trend, but I'm pleased as punch with my new shoes! A little Modge Podge and glitter makes a plain pair of black heels so striking. What have you DIY'd lately?

I got a little creative today. Oh, so good for the soul. I made these glittered wine glasses. They are so pretty...and so easy to make. I found many how-to's on Pinterest but used this one on The Sasse Life.
But it's super easy. You'll need:
- Rubbing alcohol and cotton balls to clean off the glasses
- Modge Podge and a brush
- Glitter and paper to save you extra glitter
- Wipe you glasses clean with the cotton ball and alcohol.
- Paint on your Modge Podge any way you like. (I used painters tape to get that straight line.)
- Sprinkle with glitter.
- Let dry at least 1 hour then coat with modge podge to seal. (Do this twice for a better seal.)
Ta Da! Fancy stem ware for your upcoming Holiday party!
Sparkles make everyone smile, don't they?

Tee and Jeans: Kohl's.
Necklace: Jelly Strands via Amazon.
On my day's off I'm really casual. I rarely shower on those days, so I do a quick up-do and throw on some colorful, comfy pieces. One thing I'd like to point out is my necklace. (Sorry I forgot a close-up.) Anyway, I find it tough to wear real jewelry with a baby in tow, so I have invested in a few baby-friendly pieces. This necklace is Jelly Strands brand*. It's made especially for babies and mommas:
- 100% food-grade silicone beads
- BPA-free and lead-free
- Soft on babies sensitive gums
- Breakaway clasp for safety
- Easily wiped clean and dishwasher safe
It's the perfect necklace to wear when I'm with baby so he can tug and chew all he wants.

Here are a few highlights from the last month. No fashion, but there is a cute baby!
We got a new car! Yay! Now we can travel comfortably. We had a little (4-door) coupe. It was time for an upgrade. I LOVE it!
We took a little trip to Portland, OR and stopped at the falls on the way home. Baby was intrigued.
My good friend C of CB Photography took our family pictures recently. I love how she catches the candid moments. I can't wait to see the rest, but this one has got to be framed! (Check her out on Facebook if you're local to the Tri-Cities.)
Daddy had to get baby on the lawn mower ASAP. He loved it and knew just what to do with that steering wheel.
