Monday Love!

Happy Monday to all. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. As much as I tried to avoid it I ended up getting the dreaded summer cold. My husband had it and I took as much precaution as I could but I wasn't careful enough. Wyatt got it too but not nearly as badly as I or Jessie.

I was determined to have a good weekend though. Friday night we went to a cook out at a fabulous farm with a beautiful pond with a fountain and a summer kitchen that was fit for a king. It was a really great evening. Saturday we spent the day with my dad and that night we went to two festivals that were going on around us. The Annie Oakley festival and also the Gathering at the Garst. The Annie Oakley festival wasn't very much fun at all. There weren't many vendors and there weren't even very many people there. We had to pay to get in and it was not worth it. The Gathering at the Garst was incredible. I wish we would've went there first cause a lot of things were closed by the time we got there but it was still much more fun. Sunday we had a cookout at my dad's. My brother and his fiancé were there too. It was a busy weekend and full of lots of fun. Being sick sometimes is mind over matter. Wouldn't you know it though I did not take one picture. Sometimes I'd rather just live the moments than capture them.

Anywho, I'm still feeling a little sick but much better after a good nights sleep and a detox bath. Thank heavens. I baked a fabulous zucchini bread. I found the recipe from my pinterest. Here is the link. I hope you all enjoy it.

Also, here is a link to Sierra's shop (the gal who I'm teaming up with for the Instagram giveaway) she does beautiful jewelry and will also do custom orders! Don't forget to follow here Instagram so we can get our giveaway going. Anyone have any suggestions as to what they would like to see from The Paisley Girls in the giveaway?
That's all for now. I hope you all have a great week and enjoy your day!

bloglovin switch. Pregnancy update. Etsy shop. Shop share. Instagram giveaway.

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

So I know I'm a little late on this ( okay a lot ) but to be honest I was a little confused by all of the switching and rearranging and all the things that needed done to switch from google reader. I am still a bit confused by it all but I'm learning. Please bear with me. I did abandon my blog a bit and that's all I have to say about that. I'm back and ready for action. ( I think)

In other news, I know I fell off the face of the earth, not really, at the beginning of my pregnancy. I am still pregnant, 25 weeks and 4 days to be exact. And we are having a girl! I wasn't real happy about it at first cause I wanted another boy but we have a name picked out now and I can feel her moving and I'm very excited to have a little pink bundle.

I've also been very busy trying to get my etsy shop opened and tweaked to perfection. I love having a shop and the community. Come follow me. Check out what we have. I'd love to also follow you bloggers on etsy and view all your craftiness in action and perhaps make a purchase or two. Speaking of sales... I've made none. So I would like to make an offer with any and all etsy shop owners. Anyone wanting to share my shop on your blog, facebook, and or instagram I will gladly do the same for you. I believe it is important that we help each other out as much as we can. You can email me or contact me any other way to let me know you've shared and done your part and you have my word that I will do the same for you. All my contact info can be found at the bottom of this post for quick reference.

Moving on. I'm teaming up with Sierra over at nothing but glisten on Instagram for a giveaway from items from our etsy shops. Once Sierra reaches 350 followers on her IG the giveaway will begin. Fiori belle will also be giving something away from her shop which opens August first. Head on over to Sierra's IG shop and give her a follow; don't forget fioribelle and me to get this great giveaway rollin.
