Can I just make myself very clear? I am in Love with the DockATot. And I want everyone to buy one!! The DockATot made Liam's first beach trip infinity better than if we didn't bring one. He was the coziest little guy on the beach!

Creating pieces for my home is my most favorite crafting I do. I love to make something that has a special meaning to me, and hang it up to make my house more beautiful. I wanted to make a sign for my bedroom wall next to my TV. I am a very romantic mushy person, but the bedroom is the only place I will allow mushy quotes and pictures. So the Quote I decided to do was from Pride and Prejudice. Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite romance story. I have seen every version I can find, and the only one I am missing is 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies', and yes I fully intend to see that one too. Also topping my all time favorite movie list for the last 10 years is 'Pride and Prejudice' Keira Knightley version. I watch it every couple of months and it still gives me butterflies. Any who, needles to say I love so many quotes from the book, and movie. So I picked a quote that I thought wouldn't make my husband roll his eyes too much. The quote is "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." Cute right? Here is the finished product, and how I made it below. Also the sign would not be the same if i didn't have the gold vinyl from Silhouette.
So I got the planks of wood from an old dresser we threw away, I tore them off before everything was scrapped. I decided to stain them with my absolute favorite wood stain.
After it was dry I used wood glue to glue it together. You need to leave it sitting together, or clamped for at least 24 hours before it is really dry.
Next I started to create what I wanted the fonts and words to look like with my Silhouette Cameo that is AMAZING! If you don't have one yet you should get one!
I decided I wanted the two words that meant the most in the quote to stand out most, so I made all the other words white vinyl, And "admire", and "Love You" to be in silhouettes amazing gold Vinyl. I didn't even know they had gold vinyl until I found it on Silhouetteamerica.com. After I let my Cameo cut out the words I cut around each of them and put them in place.
Once I got rid of all the excess vinyl from the words I placed them face down on my transfer paper. I cut them out of the paper and made sure that the letters were sticking to the transfer paper good. Then i started to peal off the words and placing them down where i wanted them. It is seriously that easy! And the gold Vinyl looks amazing on the wood!! I am so happy with how it turned out.
I live with a self proclaimed princess. Charlotte truly believes she is a princess. Here are some things that we live with because of this.
1. I can't say "lets get dressed" without Charlotte saying "I want to wear a dress!"
2. Every now and then she will come up to us and demand that we take her hand and twirl her. Most likely while she is wearing a fluffy skirt.
3. After she does something that she thinks is praise worthy she applauds for herself followed by a lot of bows.
4. No matter what she is already wearing, if she finds a skirt or dress she wants to put it on immediately
5. We can't walk through a store without her finding everything that she thinks is beautiful and admiring it.
6. Most of the time she walks around touching her heart with both her hands and her head in the clouds.
7. You can't put makeup on without her wanting to wear everything you do.
8. My least favorite thing was when I told her I would put her in time out and her reply was "No, I'm a princess."
I wouldn't have her any other way.
The Ollie Swaddle is known as the smarter swaddle. When I first had kids I was so paranoid that the blankets would cover them in the night, or that I would swaddle the babies wrong. But now finally on my third child I found the answer! The Ollie Swaddle has light weight and stretchy material, it has Velcro that keeps the swaddle in one place.
You can even swaddle the baby with one or two arms out. Liam loves having his arms free, but to feel secure at the same time. So this was perfect.
If you love to swaddle your little bundle you have to try the Ollie Swaddle. It is so ingenious!

As soon as I discovered these Milestone Baby cards I wanted to cry because I didn't have them for my other two kids. These cards are the best!

I on the other hand have never been able to remember/had the time to do that! So I am so excited I found these! They let me quickly throw one in a picture with the date on it and I can remember that milestone for a lifetime!
