Hot Pink Giraffe Tutorial & Pattern

I am SO excited to be sharing this pattern with you all! It is one of my Favorite Creations!
I've always been in love with all of those huge tall giraffes you see in "rich" nurseries...  (see where I got my inspiration here!) It really wasn't in our budget to spend a lot on adorable accessories... have to keep to the priorities in mind you know (think diapers! :P) But I decided to tackle this one as a DIY and came up with this adorable stuffed giraffe. I love her. She's really mine more than my daughters. ;)

USMC Graduation, Parris Island


I know it probably looks like I've dropped off the face of the blogging world. That's because I just got back from attending my husband's United States Marine Corps Boot Camp Graduation!

I am so proud of him! Almost 90 days and 100 + Letters later I finally have him home!!!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures from the Graduation.
