  1. How cute is your chalkboard!?!?! I came accross your blog randomly and was curious if you wouldn't mind sharing if you use Chalk ink pens or actual chalk, if its a pen... where can i find those... i have a photo idea for my daughter birthday and this is too cute! Thanks in advance!

  2. Hi Erika! I just use regular Crayola chalk - some are just regular small sticks & some is sidewalk chalk. Also, the chalkboard is homemade too if you're looking to make one yourself! Here is my tutorial:

    Hope this helps! :)

  3. So I adore your chalkboard! I just found out I am pregnant yesterday and am beyond excited. Do you know of any other pregnancy blogs that are as fun as yours?

  4. The link for your tutorial doesn't work :(

  5. I love reading your blog, it is so entertaining and witty and full of love and laughs! You have a talent for writing. And I love that you link where not only your daughters clothes and products are from, but yours as well!! how great! This dress is so gorgeous and was wondering where you bought it from?

    Take care and happy new year!!
