I am so obsessed with our dining room. It came out better than I imagined! The picture is on the blurry side since this was from my Instagram so I will get better pictures once we are done with it.
We still need to get curtains and some wall decor for the opposite wall. No clue what I am putting there.
Our table also needs a bench for the side closest to the sideboard table.
Anyone else have any new home updates?
Linking up here!
When we were in Michigan it was cold for us Floridians so we got to get some good wear out of a lot of Ace’s long sleeved t’s and fun skinny jeans. I seriously love dressing this boy.

After our long travel day we had to get up the next morning and get ready for Herman’s Memorial Service.
|Lunch after Herman’s Service|
It was nice to see everyone but hate that it had to be under those circumstances. It was a nice service and afterwards we had lunch where my child decided to be the messiest eater ever! I swear if you put a white shirt on him, he will destroy it in 2 seconds flat.

After Ace’s nap Branden’s Mom and the rest of his siblings and baby nephew Elliot all came over to his brother Rodney’s house where we had a bar-b-q and hung out.
|Salsa face! He looked like the Joker|
|Aunt Angie is so sweet with Ace|
Ace was obsessed with his little cousin. Elliot is only 3 months old so he wasn’t as big of a fan of Ace as Ace was of him.
Next up: Ace’s Michigan Birthday Picnic!
As most of you know Branden’s Step Dad passed away in early June and we bumped up our Michigan trip so we could make it to his Memorial Service last Friday.
The first day of our trip was a travel day. We woke up at 5am and headed to the airport for our flight, got right through security and boarded our plane within 10 minutes. The plane wasn’t completely full so we got to sit in the back so Ace didn’t bother anyone with his lovely seat kicking skills, the stewards were amazing and the flight went great.
|Someone was nervous when we took off|
Thankfully we got her and her daughter on our flight and after a 3 hour delay headed to Detroit. Ace passed out on the flight and we made it to Detroit around 6. We then had a 5 hour drive ahead of us.
|Hanging with cousin Hailey in the Airport|
Ace did really well considering the long day. Bran’s step sister Rita seriously made our drive so much easier. She is hilarious and super funny and we were all just cracking jokes the entire time.
We finally got to Rogers City around midnight and were ready for bed. I thought this was going to be the worst of our traveling, boy was I wrong! Our way home was insane!
I promise the rest of our trip was much more interesting and will have better pictures, ha!
|How cute is the packaging?|
First off I want to let you all know I have another giveaway that starts tomorrow! Make sure to check it out. Now onto my post…
I am loving my latest Glossy Box. Seriously this thing is awesome. I am dying over the blush. I never would have bought this myself so I was really excited when I put it on and it was the perfect color for summer. I have been wearing it non-stop. The body wash is freaking amazing as well. I am seriously obsessed with that too. This box was probably my second favorite next to my first one. Everything in it has already been used, ha!
Right now you can get a free Cheek & Lip Tint with any Glossy Box order! Use code: GIFT
Expires June 30th
I think I have an Etsy addiction. Tell me I am not alone! I have been just dying over some of these shops lately.
First of all who could say no to this adorable Live Life Anchored Baseball tee by The Printed Palette? I got one of these for Ace (pictures coming very soon) and I just love it. I am always a fan of really cute and stylish shirts for him. They also have shirts for men and women so I may have to get some more for Bran and me.
The Printed Palette is offering my readers a discount code PIM10 so go check them out. They are ah-mah-zing!
Another shop I have found that is perfect for some Mommy jewelry is Bip & Bop. They have the best jewelry for Moms who want to have their child’s initial or birth stone around their neck or wrist but don’t want that super cheesy Mom charm. My favorite is the infinity bracelet with the initial and birth stone.
They are also offering my awesome readers a coupon code BIPANDBOP and it expires in 2 weeks so hurry over and order!
*This is not a sponsored post. These are shops I genuinely like.
I am in Michigan so I am doing a photo dump post. Enjoy!

You are 23 months old and I am in complete shock you will be 2 in a month.
I love you so much and I can not even imagine having a more incredible child.
Your Daddy and I sometimes just look at each other and say “Can you believe how lucky we got?” and it is so true. You are overall a very happy child, love to meet new people and are always making people laugh. You love to talk and explore.
I love that you pick up on things so easily too. I think you get that from your Daddy.
You love to “help” Daddy with house projects like hanging curtains or anything that involves tools.
You are obsessed with cars, trucks, buses, boats, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Cubby (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates) your water table, going outside, sitting on the dogs and throwing balls.
You have been obsessed with shoes. You will put on anyone’s shoes you can find.
You are so polite, you will tell us excuse me, thank you, bless you and you have even said good morning to people.
You started swim lessons and gymnastics class which you love and are awesome at.
We had an early birthday party for you yesterday with our Michigan family and friends.
You lost another grandparent this past month as well. Grandpa Herman was such a sweet man and loved you very much. My heart aches that you will never truly know 3 of your grandparents.
It has been a great month with you as usual and we can’t wait to see what next month brings because you will be turning 2!
