You guys! Old Navy is having an amazing sale online! Super cute stuff!! I can’t find my top above, but they have other similar and fabulous options!! I got my top for like $8!! I usually just buy mediums when I’m pregnant! I try not to buy much maternity if I don’t have too! Some of my clothes I wear while I’m pregnant I can wear after too! I don’t feel bad buying items I can wear after! I may have to splurge and buy a fee more maternity items this time around though! This little boy is going to be bigger than his sister I think! I’ve already added a few time from to my cart!! I’ll definitely be investing in a few more maxi skirts and dresses! They are my go to when I can’t find anything to fit!!!

Medal of Valor

Hello my lovely readers!!! Hope you all had a great weekend! It was chilly and rainy here.. Ugh, so we were stuck inside most of the weekend. On Friday my hubby was awarded the Governor’s Medal of Honor! We attended an awards ceremony and luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion. It was a fabulous and very special ceremony! I am so proud and honored to be the wife of a deputy:) It was very stressful hearing all of the stories as to why the men and women were receiving the award. They put their lives on the line for us everyday.

J.D. with the Illinois Govenor, Bruce Rauner!

Derby Party

Happy Tuesday!! Hope everyone’s week is going well! It is only Tuesday and I’m already exhausted! I think I’m still trying to catch up from the weekend! On Saturday evening my friend Kristen hosted a fabulous Derby Party for a few close friends! It was soooo much fun!! Did we actually watch the race?! Nooooo! We chatted, snacked, and drank instead! I was told the mint juleps were delicious… I had to stick with pink lemonade.. The food was aaaamazing!!!! Kristen even made each of us a “hat,” which were actually super fun headbands!! She even made Miss Libbey one! Libbey thought she was big stuff hanging with the girls! She was our entertainment for the night! She is quite the show off! I’m thinking we need to make derby parties a yearly tradition! I’ll take any excuse to dress up:)
