fun stuff...

first off, happy 6 months to our sweet cullen!!
i can not believe it's our baby's half birthday today!
so incredibly crazy how fast time flies and i'm so thankful i've gotten to spend every day with our little guy!

i've always been a sucker for etsy!  i just can't get enough of all the monogrammed cute clothes on there!  

i ordered cullen's pumpkin shirt from etsy here --> StaSweet

after i had ordered cullen's shirt i found another shop on etsy that sells appliques and she customizes them for free!  so i could order an applique for a third of the cost of the pumpkin shirt and i just iron the appliques on shirts we already have!  i was so excited!!  i ordered 4 appliques on etsy from here --> CrumbCakeBelle

when i ordered wait time was 2 weeks, it took 4 weeks for my appliques to arrive.  it was worth the wait, i just wish the site would have been up to date when i ordered.  i see now she is on vacation to catch up on orders!  i can understand why she is busy though, her products are so super cute and she does a great job on them AND the price is right!

i also ordered 5 paci clips.  cullen doesn't take a paci as much as he used to but he still likes them to fall asleep sometimes and other random times for a few minutes.  i kept losing them around the house or when we were out and about and i couldn't find any paci clips in stores.  i found this etsy store --> ClassyPaci   
you can pick 5 clips for $16.50! i thought that was a great deal!  we have the dots light and dark blue, rockets, cars and a blue and green design.  they work perfect!  if i have the clip on cullen he tends to like sucking on the ribbon ;)
*cullen does NOT sleep with these on during the night.  he does sometimes have them clipped on his shirts during the day for naps, he naps in his swing and i'm always right by him. lately, i have only been using them when we leave the house.  so no, he won't get strangled by them.  they aren't long enough to go around his neck either.

i don't know how but i was on a winning streak for giveaways!!
my bloggy friend cole started her own etsy store, you must check it out!
i was instantly in love with so many of the cute hats, i want one of each for my little guy (ok maybe not the cupcake and other girly ones but they are super cute).
anywho, i happened to win a giveaway that andrea over at my chihuahua bites hosted of a candy corn hat cole made!
looks too cute on culley, huh?!

also, AP over at ILYMTC hosted a giveaway that i just happened to win as well!
another super cute item for my little guy from jennifers's etsy store brayla bee's!
i picked the argyle airplane with cullen's name on the shirt!
once i have the shirt, i'll post a pic.

lastly, a blogger friend of mine, crystal, recently started her own boutique with her mom!
they sell all kinds of super cute items!  she was kind enough to send me a cuff to review!  i chose one for our niece for her birthday but it didn't come in time so we are saving it for her for christmas! i love the colors and the flower, it's so girly and fun!! i just hope it fits her.  i thought it looked a little small so we attempted to try it on cullen and it didn't fit his wrist.  haha!  it's super cute though and i know our niece will love it!  i can picture lauren putting it on her dolls too!  make sure you check out crystal's shop to see all her other fun goodies!!
you can also check out online colleges for arts and crafts classes that can teach you how to make your own handmade cuffs and other cute accessories.
see it's not fittin culley's wrist....ha!

in case you don't know, all the navy words are links!
sometimes i get emails requesting links, i always try to link sites when i post.

p.s. i keep seeing bloggers selling their clothes on their blogs, i want to give it a try! my closet is over flowing!  prices will be low! :)

I know this is a total "mind your own business" moment, but I work at a children's hospital and am curious about those paci clips- are they a strangulation hazard? Especially if Cullen has them in bed? I'm not sure if they are or not, but it struck me so I thought I'd bring it to your attention. Those appliques are super cute!
