DIY Tulle Garland or Skirt

Now that I’ve got myself super busy with kids, work, house, etc. I’ve decided that now is as good a time as any to start working on Olivia’s first birthday. Yes it’s still far away, but I like to be a little hands on and make some things.

I decided to start with a tulle knot garland. Originally I had planned on using a combination of tulle and fabric, but when I started adding the fabric, it just didn’t look good anymore. I’ll be using the garland for her cake smash photos, and as decoration for the party. Once that is done I’ll be cutting it in half and making each of the girls a tulle skirt. But for now I’ve arranged it so it spread out over Olivia’s window like a valance.

Need A Little Help In The Lactation Department? Premama Vitamins

This post was sponsored by BSM Media. I received a free sample to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own. 

As many of you know I’m breastfeeding my second child. With my first I had a wonderful experience and we did it for what seemed like forever. This time around the circumstances are different. I’m feeling stressed and overwhelmed with having to take care of two kids, go to work with a new longer commute, and still keep up with chores and any social commitments. I’ve really noticed a dip in my milk supply. I know there are many products and foods out there that can help with production. I’m also not a pill taker. I hate having to take huge pills. I always feel like they are too big. I dreaded having to try and take my prenatal pills during pregnancy. I just wasn’t able to take those awful pills. Luckily I was introduced to the Premama line of vitamins.

Being an Extra on NBC's Chicago Fire


This past Tuesday I was able to get something off my bucket list. I was finally chosen to be an extra on one of my favorite shows, NBC's Chicago Fire.

I really wasn’t sure what to expect other than what I was told my role would be. Being an extra isn’t just fun and games, it really is work. But I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!  I signed up because I thought it would be a fun experience to have under my belt. And it really was fascinating to see what really goes into making an episode. In my case it was one scene of an episode. I’m not allowed to say much about the episode until after it airs, which makes sense, no spoilers for the audience. I can say that what I thought was going to be an 8 hour day turned into a 12 hour day for me. The other extras were there longer. But on the plus side we do get paid!
