Date Night

You guys. I am so freaking excited. Saturday Cory and I are going on date night! We haven’t gone out just the two of us since our anniversary in December. It’s wayyyy long overdue.

What’s in my diaper bag

When I found out I was pregnant with Colton I was determined to find a diaper bag that I loved and that resembled a purse this go around.
