Have you seen my latest sponsor Adorabelle Couture? She has the most darling pettiskirts I have seen. A girl could feel like a real princess in one of those. Oh, and that black polka dot one, you just have to see it for yourself. Go check them out here.
Also, head here to enter in the My Bella Baby Giveaway.
One thing I can't stand is to be late for things. It is a pet peeve of mine. Especially if people are waiting for me, it makes me feel like I am saying their time is not as important as mine. Which I definitely don't believe so yeah, being late just bugs me. I have noticed with two kiddos....it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to get places early like I like. And sometimes, even on time. I feel like my brain especially lately is just frazzled. Maybe after this first move, my life will return to 'normal' whatever that really means.
One thing that helps me speed things along is having a bag prepacked. You know the drill, toys, snacks, diapers/wipes, whatever might help avoid a meltdown in public. Those kinds of things. I also have a bag that I keep solely for Sundays. We go to church and need something to help entertain the kiddos while we are there. It is full of toys, books, treats, etc that are set aside just to be played with on Sundays at church. It has been a lifesaver. It is so nice to have the bag already ready to go....especially when we are running late, which seems to be every week these days. Going at 11:30 is just killing me. Two meals before church is just too much along with getting everyone ready. But anyway, the bag is saving me. (Sorry that photo is a tiny bit blurry.) The bags are just real simple. My mom and I whipped these suckers out without a pattern. We made them with tapered sides, a rectangle bottom, and two box front/backs. The whole thing is lined. It has a cute pocket with a fun flower on it to jazz it up a bit.
And it has pockets inside to help stuff all of those much needed bribe treats in. It also has a magnetic snap for closure and long straps. It was a fun bag to make and so easy too. Talking about it makes me want to make another one. I am addicted to bags though. Seriously. I think it is a problem. I have a TON of bags. And even more patterns on my computer to make more. Don't worry. When I make more, I will definitely share them on here.
