Happy BUMP Day!

SURPRISE!!  I am so excited to announce that I will be a first time mommy!  My husband and I are so excited and feel so blessed.  I wanted to wait a little to share our big news and now that I've entered my second trimester (15 weeks), it's about that time!  It feels so good to be able to finally share our little secret with everyone.  

If you haven't guessed by the onesie, were having a...........BOY!

Our baby boy and I are doing great and we can't wait to meet him!
God has blessed us with our little angel and we couldn't be happier.  To be honest, as long as we have a healthy baby the sex didn't matter.  Of course my husband is elated that he's having a son.  

I can't wait to share this journey with you!

Anything But COMMON

We all love unique designs and handcrafted gifts.  When uncommongoods reached out to me, I was super excited to be working with them.  

Part of uncommongoods mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers.  I love that when you visit their website they have a little of everything.

As I shopped around the website, I couldn't get over all the whimsical pieces that they have to offer.  They have housewares, clothing, jewelry and lots more.  Picking a favorite piece is going to be the hard part.

While I was shopping, I wanted everything!  One of my picks was this super funky watch.  It's called the Equation Geek Watch, and it's anything but common.  It's got the equivalent notation for each number.  How cool is that?!  A perfect gift for all the upcoming graduation parties you'll be attending and lets not forget Father's Day!  


I'm all about delicate and dainty jewelry pieces for summer.  The last thing I want is heavy jewelry clingy on my skin when it's hot and humid out.  That's why I fell in love with the Forget Me Not Rings.  This bow ring is sterling silver and delicately tied in a pretty bow made from the mold of a real string.  

I haven't even gotten to the best and most amazing part of uncommongoods.  

They have a you shop, we give program.  Through The Better to Give program, they've been able to build a better business by connecting their customers with charities around the globe.  With every purchase you  make, they are proud to donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice.  Since they started the Better to Give program 12 years ago, they've donated over $1,000,000.  

Now you can shop and feel good about it!  Let's keep up the good work!
