Her prices are great as well soakers start at $12 shorties and longies start at $15. First is my favorite is the custom applique Upcycled Merino Wool Shorties.




I wont forget the backside shot which is my favorite.
I love these I love wool but it must be a thin wool and non scratchy so I was really excited when these were in my mail box. I took them out and I immediately washed and Lanolized them. I have a how to video and when it is up I will add it to the bottom of this post. We have been using these during the day over fitted diapers. The fit on these are great and they will last him awhile with a little room to spare. These were made with custom measurements that I gave her. She was very sweet and walked me thru the measurement process so we would get it right and it worked great. Here is how they look on.
Now here is the backside.
I also tried out a soaker as well and it is just as cute.
Now the back.
I love how thin these are and i can still fit them inside his pajamas. I even sometimes put these over my covers at night time just because he is such a heavy wetter at night for extra protection.

Comfort and Style: 3 Stylish Workout Options

It takes quite a bit of discipline to work out regularly, eat healthy foods, and get fit. One of the best ways to motivate yourself toward health is by treating yourself to the purchase of cute workout clothes to wear while exercising and to the gym. Name brand workout clothes can be expensive, but it’s easy to find some good options at familiar stores, such as rHYPERLINK "http://www.rue21.com/store/"ue21. Here are a few favorites to consider:

Mats to Pants: Essential Items for Beginning a Yoga Practice

Anytime an individual wants to start a new workout, the beginning can feel expensive, because many marketers would have us believe that we need a lot of “essential” gear to be successful and fulfilled in the new practice. Most workouts, however, require minimal equipment, and some of it you may have just laying around your house for other purposes. Here are some essential items you’ll need to begin a yoga practice, as well as non-essentials that can be substituted for things you may already have. Some great essential items are available at The Clymb.

Remodeling

Now that summer is here that means we will be outside all of the time. I always have alot of projects to do when it is so nice out. This year I want to finish out privacy fence on the third side. Most of the work that we do will be on us but if we need to contract out I am checking into BuildDirect reviews. I have been wanting to finish this fence for quite some time since we have dogs and they always tend to bark at our neighbors house all day long. It will be super nice when I don't have to hear their yapping. That is what happens when you have 2 small dogs. At least they are still cute.

I also want to add to our gardens. It seems like every year our raised garden beds double each time. This year I would like to have more yellow squash and zucchini. I would also like to try something new like watermelon. Expanding out garden means more projects and construction and building. We even grow vegetables and herbs in out front yard as well. Growing our own food is a great joy for us and we share our produce with our family and our neighbors. Some of the neighbors we have we even trade for items that they have grown.

Another project that I want to tackle is redoing our basement. We have a finished basement but I would like to paint all of the walls. I also want to put in new floors and redo the bathroom. In the 4 years that we have lived in this house we have redone everything upstairs and would like to perfect the basement to match. The first thing I need to go is get rid of the clutter. The toy room seems like it is now the catch all room. I really think I just have to many baby things. I could most likely care for 4 kids with all of the items that I have and I hold on to.
