Top 2 Tuesday- Reality TV Shows

This week over at The Undomestic Momma's blog is Top 2 Tuesday- Reality TV Show edition. This was a tough one for me, because anyone who knows me in real life, knows I LOVE me some reality TV! Not a good thing!

1} My TOP favorite is The Real Housewives on Bravo. I love all the seasons pretty much, but New York is DEFINITELY my favorite! Those gals crack me up, seriously! If you've never seen the show, you need to start catching up on it STAT!

2} Bethenny Getting Married? She was my favorite character from The Real Housewives of New York, and now she has her own show, also on Bravo. She cracks me up because she truly has no filter. She says things exactly the way they are, and doesn't sugar coat anything. Something I wish I did more of! Another 'must-see' show!

2} There was a tie for #2: The Bachelor/Bachelorette!! This show is semi staged obviously, but I still adore it. LOVE getting together with girlfriends and talking crap watching the show and seeing who every one's favorites are, and who we think will make it to the end. This is the FIRST year I actually read a spoiler about who makes it to the Top 2, which I'm SO mad at myself that I did that!

What are your favorite reality TV shows?

P.S. Off topic of reality TV, but my growing business was featured in a new family publication that just came out with its first edition yesterday! I was SO excited to get a copy of the magazine and check out my article. I was pleasantly surprised that it took up a whole page, and looked GREAT! I'm hoping to get a copy online and post the article here for ya'll to read!

Dancing Queen

2 weekends ago was Macie's big dance recital. She takes ballet, tap and jazz and is such a phenomenal dancer (and I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother). She is built just like a ballerina and really moves with grace, which is amazing for a 7 year old!

Here she is with her friend Makenna, they both looked so adorable!

Here's Macie admiring herself in the mirror, she is so my child, ha ha!

Making silly faces!!

Dancing ballet

Shake what your momma gave ya girl ;)

Tap dancing girl!

I neglected to upload the pictures to blogger of her jazz dance, it was kind of a hot mess, her teacher isn't very good and it was pretty unorganized.

This weekend we're getting together with friends tonight to snuggle on our latest baby Zoie, tomorrow I have a pool party with my Diva's, and Sunday is Father's Day. What are ya'll up to?

I'm going to be teaming up with Aly over @ Analyze This in the near future to host a giveaway on her blog. I will make sure to let you all know when that is so you can enter to win one of my latest products!!

What We've Been Up to Lately

Once again I should be fired from blogging.... I have been MIA for over a week (and a half), WHOOPS! So sorry ladies (and family :)), we've been super busy, and I've just been at a loss for blog topics as well.

This is what has been consuming a LOT of my time- working! Here is one of my most recent projects that I had a great time with, and the fact that they turned out super cute and were for 2 cutie little girls!

Another recent project that I thought turned out fairly well also. I LOVE little ruffles on the butt of onesies and bloomers, so adorable! This was a going home outfit for a sweet little baby girl I will introduce you to in a moment...
Little butt ruffles, to die for!

This past Wednesday evening, some of our best friends welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world. I was SO privileged to be able to be in the room when this took place. What an amazing miracle from God! Tracy was so strong and should be proud of what a tough cookie she is!!

The new family of 4, showing big sister her new baby sister, SO sweet! I cried like a baby during this moment!

Our friend Aaron getting to hold his daughter for the first time. What a special moment, so glad I was a little camera happy on this day ;)

Me and Zoie! Can't wait to snuggle this girl all the time, and continue to spoil her rotten!

This is another thing we've been doing as much as possible lately as well....

Addaline and I swimming, she is such a water girl!

So what have ya'll been up to lately?? I am in desperate need of catching up on all your blogs. I will try to be better this week, wish me luck! I have tons of orders to catch up on, and am so blessed to be having such success with my new home business. I couldn't be more grateful!
