GROSS! Just keepin' it real. There's mold and rotting going on behind that wall thanks to a leak that's been on going for quite some time. Thankfully our insurance is covering it. So there's gonna be some fixing and changes to this bathroom. I am not sure how long it will take but I will be posting updates on the blog as we go. My husband is tearing up the shower this afternoon so I will make sure to take pictures of that as well. I'm excited! I've been pinning bathrooms like crazy on Pinterest. We have a few ideas of what we would like and I will share them on here soon but for now you can look at what our bathroom currently looks like which will soon be our before pictures!
I'm so excited! More posts to come soon!

I received the Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat for review purposes but all opinions are my own. This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Evenflo and Latina Bloggers Connect.
Overall we are VERY happy with our new seat! Levi falls asleep in it (as you can see) and seems so comfy. The Evenflo Symphony DLX Convertible Car Seat is
Mr. Levi's got a new big boy car seat. A spiffy one I might add. The infant car seat he was in before was just a tad bit small for him and we were thinking about buying him a new one when we received this one to review. Talk about perfect timing! My first impression when I opened the box and saw the seat was "VERY NICE!" it looks so comfy and the fabric looks very high end.
Levi has been riding in his new seat for a week now and he's been so comfy in it. Let's break it down shall we? Let's go over the PROS + CONS of this car seat so that it helps those of you who are in the market for this type of car seat.

Hello Friends! I wrote this post as a guest post for A Beautiful Exchange a couple weeks ago and I thought I would share on my blog as well as a Five on Friday edition.
I know that blog design can be pricey at times and if your blog is your hobby then you don't really want to spend much just to make it "pretty". I get it so I'd like to share a couple FREE tips/tricks to help you out. Let's make your blog "pretty" and more visually welcome without spending any money. Yay!
1. KEEP IT SIMPLE
I like reading blogs with a simple/white background don't you? Make your blog less "busy" looking by removing the background! Stick to simple fonts that are easy to read. The simpler the better. Plus it will take a lot less time for your page to load which means your readers won't grow inpatient waiting for your content to load and leave. Now I know some of you are not "simple" people and that's ok. It's ok to like glitz and glam, you can still have some of that on your header but it will be less distracting if you keep the rest of your blog clean and easy to read.
2. REMOVE THE FRAMES
If you are using any of bloggers templates then chances are your pictures/graphics all have frames around them. Loose the frames so that your pictures stand out! You can do this by following my tutorial here.
3. ENLARGE YOUR PHOTOS
Making your photos Larger makes them stand out more. Just visit some of your favorite blogs and see for yourself. I bet most of them have large photos! You can do this on blogger by clicking on your photo and this will pop up...
Then just click on "X-Large" or if your graphic is sized to fit the width of your post already then just click "Original size" like I did for the graphic used in this post.
4. DON'T CENTER
Your text that is! It's so much harder to read your wonderful post when your text is all centered. Don't make the mistake I did when I started out. Align your text to the left and it will make your posts SO MUCH easier to read.
5. CENTER YOUR NAVIGATION BAR
This is one thing that looks best when centered: your navigation bar. It's more visually appealing when it's nice and centered. If you are using a blogger template you can easily do this using my tutorial here.
I hope these tips work for you! They sure come in handy for those of you who are just starting to blog or maybe you've been blogging for a while but have neglected your design a little.
Have a wonderful weekend!
