Wednesday, May 24, 2017


Oh hey, It's my birthday! Today I am 30...Gosh that feels old! Remember all those cute cake smash photos I took with my bestie? Today I am sharing the rest.

30 doesn't look so bad when you have cake, champagne and your bestie by your side!

Thirty with my bestie

Guys, It's my 30th birthday week! Last night I went out with some of my best girls from Mom's group and it was a blast and the perfect way to kick off my birthday week!!

But what I REALLY wanted to do for my 30th Birthday was have a birthday cake smash with my bestie! A couple weeks ago (Right smack in between our 30th birthdays!) Joycie and I got to do just that! My sweet friend Larissa with Purple Moments Photography  Made my vision a reality and photographed the whole thing! 

Besties at 15, Besties at 30 and Besties FOREVER! 
(Be sure to stay tuned later this week for my single shots!)

Currently March

Holy Bananas it's been a while! And even longer since I have done a "Currently Post" So here goes! Everything we have been up to over here at the Mock house! :) 

Okay so I have been the WORST reader lately! The last 2 books I read were "Talking as Fast as I Can" by Lauren Graham and "Big Little Lies" which I hear they turned into an HBO series. I am pretty sad we cancelled our cable because the book was amazing! I have the Shack sitting on my bedside table, just haven't started it yet.

I know we are WAAAAAY behind on this show, but Christopher and I just discovered Revenge and have Almost binge watched the whole series on Netflix! It's not a long series and its one of those that leaves you hanging at every turn so it's pretty easy to watch them pretty quickly.  That "Just one more" mentality is another reason I am drinking ALL THE COFFEE on this monday after Day Light Savings Time.  


This recipe for Spinach enchiladas! Perfect for Fridays during Lent.  

That our current business venture pans out. 

Listening to:
Hallie. She never stops talking these days! (At ear piercing volumes mind you) 

Working on:

Refinishing a big girl bed for Hallie's room!
Also Birthday party prep for Hallie's 3rd birthday! I can't believe it's around the corner! Also that business venture ^ I posted about above! 

Looking Forward to: 
An upcoming Spa appointment! I got a gift card from a sweet friend almost a year ago! I planned to use it last week and ended up with the flu on the day I was supposed to go! Can't wait to reschedule! 

Loving: For Mommy:
You guys this is where I need your help! I have been SOOO focused on buying for Hallie that now I am in a Mommy Wardrobe Rut! What are some must haves for my Spring Wardrobe!?

For Hallie:
This adorable Mermaid Bathing Suit! Hal is super obsessed with mermaids lately. And also here is a little peek at her big girl bedding!

What have you been up to!?

Freshly Picked Review/ Instagram GIVEAWAY

"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."- Marilyn Monroe

Freshly Picked moccassins are definitely those shoes for our littlest Mock, Hallie! Hallie has been wearing Freshly Picked Moccasins since she was only a few months old. They will always hold such a special place in my heart, because they tell the story of her childhood.  All of her firsts were done in Freshly Picked! From her first steps to her first birthday, these shoes have been along for the ride!
Our Moccs have been on family vacations, to the park, and to Church. She has warn them with Halloween costumes for family photos,on her birthdays and on so many holidays I have lost count!
Not only are they adorable and come in the most gorgeous vibrant colors, but the quality is outstanding! They are made from the very best quality leather and hold up incredibly well! Even for the spunkiest most active little girl! Don't believe me? We recently received these precious Spring Orchid Soft Soled Moccasins from the Classic's Collection  Hallie wore them for the first time to the Tulip Field. It had recently rained, and Hallie got them incredibly muddy. That night I wiped them clean with the Freshly Picked leather wipes and they look practically good as new!

Hallie has worn these shoes in every stage of her life, from crawling to her first wobbly steps to running and jumping on the playground, these shoes have held up through all of her tough love! They are great for early walkers because those cute little toes can feel the ground through the shoes, but they protect those perfect piggies from the rough pavement! The elastic is right around the ankle so they go on with ease and stay on perfectly!

They come in a large variety of colors and styles to match every outfit, every mood and every personality!

Swaddle Designs Review/**GIVEAWAY**

Happy Wednesday Friends!!! Today is so fun because we are teaming up with Swaddle Designs for a really fun giveaway!

Hallie and I have been using Swaddle Designs Muslin Blankets since she was born and we absolutely LOVE how they have grown with her! They have been swaddle blankets, play mats, loveys and now Hallie loves wrapping up her own babies up in them!

Among the MANY great products offered by Swaddle Designs are these brand new Muslin Swaddles from the new "Touch of Shimmer muslin collection" 
The Muslin Swaddles are made from the greatest quality 100% cotton fabric and are SUPER soft to the touch. Our very first swaddles from Hallie's infant days are still in PERFECT condition and I am convinced they just keep getting softer with every wash! 

These Muslins come in some of the most fun and fabulous prints and colors that make it so easy for everyone to find something for their sweet babe!  We are adoring these new shimmery colors and can't wait to gift some to my sweet friend Callie and her new baby girl! (They match her nursery PERFECTLY!) 

Swaddle Design Muslins really make the perfect gift because they are so versatile and are sure to be loved for years, just ask Hallie!

But my FAVORITE thing about Swaddle Designs is that they sew in an easy 123 pictorial instructional guide on the edge of each blanket to help even the most "inexperienced swaddler" (just kidding she had help) learn how to swaddle their baby for the most comfortable sleep for baby.  They are also generously sized and make it so easy and convenient to fit every baby's need!   
 For more of a swaddling guide, you can check out their website for an easy step by step guide!

Want to hear something else amazing? Swaddle Designs has been kind enough to offer one of my readers the chance to win their own muslin swaddle 4 pack! The giveaway is open to all US/Canada residents.  Please head over to my INSTAGRAM to enter!
