Vday Baby and a Mustache

I take a lot of pictures of Baby K, but I've been wanting to do another set-up photo shoot with her, and I figured Valentines Day was the perfect excuse. 

After I finished I realized that if it wasn't February, you wouldn't know that these pictures are supposed to be for V-day. Oh well! They're still cute!

If you read my blog frequently, then you know that I'm working to be a self-taught photographer, and after learning more, and taking more pictures, my dream becomes clearer. I love this. I want to do this. For the rest of my life. 

The pictures turned out so well, but of course, I do have a pretty cute subject.

I hope you enjoy!

{My first homemade tutu!}

Yes, those are her real eye lashes. I could eat them up. Delicious!

{This was my favorite!}

Of course I am no professional, but with time and practice, I hope to get better, and turn my hobby into a side-job, or even a career!


A few days ago I received a necklace in the mail that I ordered from the Little Miss Momma Etsy shop,
and I loooove it!

Ashley at Little Miss Momma is so adorable. I blog-stalk her frequently read her blog occasionally. The first thing I noticed on her blog was a picture of her modeling a mustache necklace. I had to have one.
The Moustache Necklace--Black Acrylic stache necklace on a silver chain
Lucky for me, she sells them in her shop, along with some freakishly cute rings that I would love to have some day. 

I was going to model it for you, but I'm having a lazy day, you wouldn't want to see how I look right now.
Besides, it looks cute on Kynlee too!

You should check her out!

Wee-Cycle Consignment

The Wee-Cycle Consignment sale is a biannual children's consignment sale in Boone NC, offering a chance to recycle children's clothing within the community. Their next sale will be March 5th through March 12th, and I am so excited!

I have never been to the sale, but I have heard great things about it, and I always love the chance to find cheap items for Kynlee and some cute clothes!

Look at all of the clothes! I know one mommy who will be tearing through those racks!

You get the idea right? 
Oh boy, so many clothes! 

If you are in Boone, and have children, or have friends with children, you have to check out Wee-Cycle. If you have a blog, you can also promote the sale and be entered into a drawing for a pass into their pre-sale, which I'm hoping to win :)

For more information check out their web-site :

Oh Wait, I Have a Blog?

The glass of wine I had last night was well deserved after the week I've had, that's all I have to say about that. 

I love blogging, and sharing my story, but I didn't have any time for my little blog last week because I was shoved under a pile of school work and studying. Even if I did write about my week, you probably would have stopped reading because you would get so depressed. 

I don't want to share too much about the unfortunate events that took place in the past 7ish days, because I don't want to relive them, just know that it was busy, stressful, and sleepless. Never have I cried because of school before, oh but I did...a lot. 

I used to love school, but now I have an entire list of adjectives I would like to use to describe it right now, none of which are pleasant.

However, I did have a lovely, well-deserved, relaxing weekend. 
My mom kept Kynlee and I showered myself with dreams, it was magical. Just what I needed after a joke of a week. 

I know a lot of parents my age who would take a weekend away from their young child, and turn it into a weekend full of partying, and hungover mornings. For that reason, I felt so guilty for having my mom watch Kynlee. I was afraid I would be judged as a lazy mom who wanted a weekend away to do whatever I wanted. Corey wouldn't let me feel guilty though, because we're doing this so she can get used to staying away for a few nights for when Corey and I go to Florida in a month. Besides, I spent it sleeping, doing school work, cleaning, and crafting. Did I have a glass of wine? Hell yes, but I would hardly call that a crazy child-free weekend. 

I loved being able to catch up on my crafts. 

For Christmas, I made one of these wreaths for my sister-in-law. She asked if I would make her one for her class-room door, and of course I said yes! I had fun with this one:

I also made a tutu for Kynlee's Valentine's photo-shoot, which I am planning for later this week. 

I'm so excited to take her Valentine's pictures, I hope to have them up by Monday or Tuesday.

Even though I was happy to relax for two days, and catch up on crafts, I missed my girl so much. I don't know how I'm going to handle being away from her when we go to Florida. 


Corey and I have never celebrated Valentines Day, but I guess I was feeling a little sentimental this year since it's our first as a married couple, so I decided to do a little somthin-somthin for him.
I received a coupon for a free photo-book when I bought my camera a few months ago, so I decided to make Corey a book about our wedding day.
I just got it in the mail today, and it turned out so good.

*so glad someone made me aware of the error. Instead of it saying Courtney and Corey, it says Corey & Corey. Luckily, I just checked, and it was totally their fault, so I can get it fixed!*

Was that a random enough post for you? Oh well, it's my blog, remember? :)

Now it's time to go submerse myself in Chemistry homework. I hope everyone has a fabulous night!
