A Peek Inside My Life {& Special May Giveaway}!

I am so glad that it is May--I love Spring and all the flowers and trees blooming with all the pretty colors!

My kids went to Christian Prom this past month and my daughter Joy went for the first time. It was SO fun shopping with her and spending the day getting everything she needed. All her friends came over to the house to get ready and then my adult daughter who was a chaperone drove them there along with my two older sons. Here is the dress she picked:



We found it at JC Penny and it was a whopping 60% off (plus I used my RetailMeNot app and found another 25% off coupon)--it was so beautiful and fit our budget perfectly!

My second oldest son celebrated his 16th birthday last week and got his permit (here he is on Instagram)! I can't believe how fast he is growing, everyone says he is a mini-Steve. Although if you see him he is not so mini in any way--he is big and taller than me and has been for some time!

And since we mentioned spring everything has been growing around my house:




(These are some lovely star rose bushes I planted recently, 
they are so pretty, I got them from Costco
and I am thinking about getting some more
since everyone loves them!)




(These hyacinths smelled amazing!)


Here is also a  picture of my little 2-year-old Easter Bunny, I wish I had put her hair up but we hosted a huge gathering at our house and all I had energy for was that pretty little pink bow.  Her birthday is this weekend (she is turning 3 - where has the time gone?) so I have been busy planning a big party for her! I ordered most of her gifts off Amazon, but I am especially excited about this special gift though and can't wait for it to get here! Shhh----don't tell her, it's a secret!




I am also going to attempt a photoshoot for her sometime this week since I picked up a bunch of beautiful dresses for her last month at my favorite store, Once Upon a Child. She is always on the move so it is hard to get pictures of her but I am going to try anyway! My other daughter who does photography bought a super nice camera last year so I am thinking about borrowing it so the pictures come out more professional looking. If I get any good ones I will definitely share them here with you!

Now I mentioned before that I wanted to do a giveaway every month and this month I decided I would giveaway something beautiful from Lilla Rose!

I love how they just came out with this Floressa Flexiclip--it is SO pretty and feminine!

I love these hairclips and bobbie pins. I have thin hair so I need smaller clips or a clip that does not need too much hair and still looks pretty. Would love these for Mother's Day.
