Baby Fashion on a Budget

Happy Friday everyone! I am so happy to say I am BACK with a new laptop thanks to my Hubs so I get to share with you what I wanted to before my laptop decided to go boom!

Now if you visit my blog you know my Isy is a preemie which means that when it comes to clothing she is still not fitting her "age" right now being 15 mth old you would think she would be wearing 18-24 mth sized clothed right? Nope my tiny bean is fitting 9-12 mths and she can even fit comfortably 6 months.

With that being said I sometimes feel like I don't know what to get her and of course who doesn't love dressing up their baby but with me having 3 others to dress as well budget has become my first name right about now.

This is where My Littles Clothesline comes in. They are an online consignment children's store. I am BEYOND over the moon to have been able to find them as they actually don't have any consignment stores near me. This was JUST what I needed. The clothes that they have for sale are very well priced and are of the best quality.

Here is my Isy with some of the outfits I've purchased for my Isy :

I have loved everything we purchased. Another of my favorite things that they have are Bargain Boxes which are"surprise" boxes with 5 items of the size you choice (boy or girl) at $5.00 they are AWESOME.

This is one of the latest boxes Isy got :

This was JUST what Isy needed some pajamas since it's getting chilly. I also love that just as I purchase clothes I am able to send the clothing that doesn't fit Isy.

The only thing is you must make sure anything you do send in have no stains or damaged and in excellent condition. I was so happy to send the clothes Isy outgrew while in the NICU as well as the first few months home. I made a little money that truth be told I'll just spend at the store again!

Now I have some AMAZING news Lauri was wonderful enough to let me give away to one of my readers a $20 Gift Certificate to the store! Also FYI there are sizes for bigger kids there as well so you can get something for your littlest to your not so little too! (getting my 7 year old some stuff this weekend!)

So go ahead enter and good luck. Off to work on some more fun post for the coming week!

Good news:
 I managed most of my pics out before it COMPLETELY went into look lady I am done mode. The internt works as that's how I'm posting right now.

Bad news
Any documents I had on m computer are gone. Can't even get into documents as it's corrupted. My Ali and Cathy Z and Project Life things I had....GONE.. SIGH...SO yeah this is me right now...

In another bit of other good news I actually HAVE all my pictures backed up on Shoebox (like Dropbox but better) which I TOTALLY forgot so at least I have my pictures right?

Now to figure out HOW the heck am I gonna get me another computer because I need my PSE, Radlab & Stomped for me to feel good about what I am presenting on my blog right? Or No..

I have SO much I want to share w/you as I have some FUN giveaways coming up as well as reviews and other fun projects I want to share with you..

When it rains it pours speaking of which we were suppose to go to Rise of the Pumpkins today but it's been pouring since last night so hmm now I don't even know if that's going to happen I wanted to share that with you guys too!

OK enough negative yuckness. I shall be back (shortly I hope) I guess I can start some blog posts and just wait until I have a new station to add my pictures and I'll be ahead of the posting game right?

Well off I go wish me luck!

5 Things around Here

Although it's was a shorter week it was jam packed around here. Here's a peek at what was going on around here:

These right here the most EASIEST "Fallish" cupcakes. Ingredients: Pumpkin Puree(1 can), Chocolate chips (1/2 cup) and White cake mix. Put them all together in a bowl mix well and bake in a pre-heated oven of 350 for 15-20 minutes. Your welcome. SO Yum!!

 Being Isy with the grace of God has been basically our super preemie I thought it only fit that this year she be Wonder baby for Halloween.

My Littles and I got crafty and painted a few pumpkins that I picked up at Micheal's Craft store. It was so much fun and it got us talking about the fun crafts that we will be doing soon for  Thanksgiving and Christmas.

This right here is everything. My oldest baby girl reading to my youngest baby girl. Mama melt right there.

My oldest- Ramzees showing off his new shirt he got from my brother... Sure I like the shirt (yes he was named after a pharaoh) but hmm did you guys see his blackboard.... #myjobisgoingwellthankyouverymuch

So that's been our week in a nutshell. What about you? What have you been up to?

October 15- Remembrance Day

On October 15, at 7:00 pm in all time zones, families around the United States will light candles in memory all of the precious babies who have been lost during pregnancy or in infancy.  Too many families grieve in silence, sometimes never coming to terms with their loss.
If you or someone you know has suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss due to SIDS/SUID, prematurity or other cause, we hope you will join us in this national tribute to create awareness of these tragic infant deaths and provide support to those that are suffering

I will light a candle for my little girl Anjelique who passed to SIDS at the age of 2 1/2 months  8 years ago. Not a day goes by she isn't loved or spoken of. Over the years I have tried to spread the word on SIDS as it effected our family in hopes that it will be able to bring awareness.
Throughout our journey I have been blessed to meet some of the most amazing and wonderful woman who are walking the same path. Each day I feel that more blessed.
I hope you will join us and light a candle so we may light up the night in memory of all our sweet little ones who were gone too soon.

Oh Great Pumpkin. Wonderful Traditons

Watching this with my Littles has become a wonderful tradition. I remember being little and while other kids were waiting on a scary movie to come on during the "Halloween" week I was looking for Charlie and the Gang.

 I love Charlie Brown and being able to share the love of what he means with my kids makes it that much more special.
Hearing them giggle and cheer on Linus no matter how many times we have watched it over the years is the best.  Priceless memories.

This year we shall have one more watching. Last year Isy was super tiny. I know she still wouldn't get who these awesome characters are is but I know she will giggle right along w/her siblings when they do...and I can't wait to hear that beautiful sound.

FYI: They will be playing It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on Wednesday on ABC at 8:30 EST

Do you have any traditions you share with your kids that you did when you were little?

3 Kid Movies to See This October

I don't know about you but every other commercial my kids scream out OH I want to see that! So I thought I'd share what's in store for my kids (or so I hope!)

1- The Boxtrolls

Mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs,devise a daring plan to save Eggs' family from the town villain.

2. Book of Life

This is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. Rich with a fresh take on pop music favorites, this film encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future

3. Alexander and the Terrible No good Day

  1. Follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life-a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he's not alone when his brother, sister, mom and dad all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn't had one.

Can't wait to watch these movies with my Littles. Next Month is also a good movie month.I personally can't wait for Hunger Games! 

What about you are going to plans to go to the movies anytime soon?
