Etsy Finds

I found a wonderful vintage shop on Etsy this morning. There are so many things to look at and browse through and the photos are great. A good photo on Etsy makes such a huge difference. Not only is there a plethora of vintage, the shop owner also uses vintage books to make journals. How awesome is that?! Look at some of the amazing things that are available in this shop, The Fancy Lamb.

Here is one of the vintage books that have been turned into a journal. You can also choose a particular book that you would to have turned into a custom journal. I can't get over what a great idea that is.

So go shop The Fancy Lamb and find some treasure to make your home feel a touch more cozy. I plan on spending the weekend going through every item available.

Momma Monday

Time to sit back and reflect on the past week of being a momma to my little gal. I think this week went pretty well. We had some family come into town and had a wonderful weekend.

Momma victory #1:
We have survived our first baby cold! Sophie has had a runny nose and cough for the past few days. It's not gone yet, but I feel like I've gotten the hang of wiping her up and clearing her nose. She sure is cute with that little cough, but it makes me sad to see her all stuffed up. Hopefully she can kick the cold soon!

Momma victory #2:
Whoever tells first time expecting moms that breastfeeding makes you lose weight at an incredible rate was a big fat LIAR. Yes, you do lose a ton of weight within the first 2 weeks, but I'm thinking a lot of that was baby and her environment. I have been walking, but it's starting to get cold [finally], so I picked up this DVD and it's kicking my butt.

Every morning I wake up hating Jillian, but knowing that she is going to whip me into better shape. When I want to throw my weights and tell Jillian to go eat some cake, I try and remember this:

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
