{Review & Giveaway} My Genavie

I was so excited when Kristen, from My Genavie, contacted me about doing a review and giveaway of her Etsy shop.  Her stuff is so cute!  She offers headbands (from newborn to adult sizes), bobby pins, brooch or hair clips, and bib necklaces.  

Here are some of my favorites:

Kristen was kind enough to send me this adorable headband and bobby pin clips for review: 

Cute, right?!  Now I just hope we are having a little girl because I'm already dreaming about the adorable newborn pictures we could get with that purple headband.  Love it!

The headband seems nice and sturdy, yet should be comfortable for baby.  There is felt covering the back of the flower portion, so there will be nothing poking baby there.  It's very well put together!  The clips seem very sturdy, too.  They were easy to use and did a good job of holding my hair back.  I love that there is a set for both mommy and the little one.  So sweet!

Kristen really does a great job putting her pieces together.  You can tell she puts a lot of time and hard work into it.  Check out her shop to see what other beautiful pieces she has created!


She has also been kind enough to offer a giveaway for my readers!  One lucky winner will receive a headband of their choice (up to $18.00 value) and any set of bobby pins (up to $6.50 value)!  If you're interested in winning, please leave a comment for each entry.  If your email address is not listed in your profile, please post it in your first entry.   Mandatory entries must be completed first.

TBPNC - Week 8

Week 8 of the challenge was The Descendants.

The plot via Wikipedia:

"The Descendants is a 2011 American drama film based on the novel of the same name. Tracing the journey of land baron Matt King, struggling with unexpected occurrences in his monotonous life, The Descendants was released to widespread acclaim from critics and won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as two Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture - Drama and Best Actor - Drama for George Clooney."

It was good.  Kind of slow at times, but still good.  The story was sad.  I can't imagine having to go through that.  I thought George Clooney did a great job, as always.  And it really made me want to go to Hawaii.  It was just beautiful!  I think Andrew thought it was just ok, but still gave it a thumbs up.

Here's another Pinterest Monday with Musings of a SAHM and Mama to Four Blessings!

Pinterest Monday From Musings From A Stay At Home Mom

So as I said earlier today, I'm 8 weeks pregnant now and don't have a bump yet, but I can't wait for it to begin to grow!  I'm already loving looking at maternity pics and can't wait until I get to that point and can have my own beautiful pictures taken.  Here are some ones that I love.

It's Official!

After five long months of trying, I'm...

We're so excited!  I'm due on December 21st, so hopefully baby will be here in time for Christmas.  I'm 8 weeks as of last Friday, so it's still early, but we saw the heartbeat at my 7 week ultrasound, I've been feeling great and everything is going perfectly, so we couldn't keep it a secret any longer.

I'm so looking forward to this fun journey and seeing how it goes.  I'd like to share it with you guys, so hopefully you don't mind, and I hope to have some fun mommy/baby giveaways for you as well!
