We have a winner

 Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

And the winner is...

Kellie @ The Yeates Family!!!

Okay... so the winning comment that Kellie left was actually what nursing cover style she preferred... but I HAVE to share her embarrassing nursing story... because it was SO funny!

We were waiting to board an airplane. My husband went to go check to see if we could preboard yet. I had my three kids, a 4 year old, a 2 year old and a newborn (all boys). My baby needed to nurse so I thought I was being sneaky, found a place I could sit on the floor and lean up against the wall next to the play area, and keep an eye on both of my boys, while nursing. Until, as I was finishing I realized that I was leaning back against a glass partition that was two stories over the escalators going up to all the flight gates. I was flashing every passenger who came up that escalator for at least 20 minutes!
Thank you House of Smith's for such a fun time.  I can't wait to get Kellie her nursing cover!!

Musical everything

My dad is staying with us for several days so we are all playing musical beds.  My dad is in the kids' room, kids are in my room, I am on the couch, and Justin works all night.  Do you envy us right now?????  Must be the theme in our house right now - musical everything! Which by the way, I must have burned my self out with our house redo. I am so close to being done, but I can't muster the energy to bring our the paint roller again.  I do have hooks on the board and batten and I love it!

Warm reception

I am so thrilled by the warm reception from everybody over at House of Smith's, what a way to spread the word. The last several days have been so rewarding, and has provided some very funny reading!  If you have several minutes to kill, go read all 100+ comments from my new friends.  Some comments are stinking hilarious, it warms my heart to know I am not the only one who has "nursing stories."  

Thank you for all your kind comments!

P.S.  to all of you "new" followers, my blog is under construction! I can't wait to soon have a sweet blog home to live in.  Stay posted, this were I will have my updates and other important info for nursing covers and other products in the works.  Thanks!

House of Smith's give-a-way

After the birth of my third baby, in late March, I was sitting on the grass at the park letting the other kiddies play, and baby {K} needed to nurse.  I pulled out my old nursing cover and realized that my whole back side was hanging out, so I put the car seat behind me, which really didn't solve the problem because my sides were hanging out--I know you are laughing because you've been there before! The sad part is that all of my other mommy friends were having the same problem; we weren't able to nurse comfortably.  They say necessity is the mother of invention..Well, this mom had a necessity, which no other nursing cover was filling!  Udderly Me covers are NOT your average nursing covers.  These are made for the real mom who has a back, two sides, and who is not always nursing in a chair.

Udderly Me covers are great for many reasons:
  • Chic, high-end design choices, made for the stylish mom.
  • Provides "all-around" modesty.
  • Versatility. The front cover can be worn alone, and the back covers can snap on and off easily as needed. .
  • Adjustable length Velcro tabs attach on either side to keep cover in place on windy days or when baby decides to kick.  Tabs can quickly be tucked away when not needed with a snap!   
  • Boning allows mom to see baby at a glance.  
  • Arms are able to move in-and-out of cover with ease. 

    Your "all-around" best nursing solution!
      GIVE AWAY:
    any cover of choice, it also will come with a flower embellishment!

    here is what you have to do

    1.Go check out
    leave a comment on house of Smiths about any funny mommy moment you might have had or seen on the subject of nursing and/or give me the name of your favorite nursing cover from Udderly Me.

      fall fever redo - middle and afters

      I have a bad case of spring fall fever.  Several days ago, Justin was in a particularly strange mood.  The kind where he doesn't mind moving furniture... Well, I jumped on made the most of the situation and I'm guessing that he is regretting his every move {no pun intended}!  It really all started when I found my killer table while at a yard sale, and another more resent find -  a massive mirror for $10.  I refinished both and I LOVE them.  So we have been trying to find the right placement for our front room for almost four years now, but because of several design dilemmas (I'll post later about) we never figured we could move the furniture where we really wanted.  Well, we did it finally - and we love it.  The room flows much nicer than before.. Funny how furniture placement can set the tone for the room/whole house!

      But....{in my world}
      Once your move the armoire, then you have to move the picture, once you move the piano you have to move the little red dresser, then you have to move the couch, then you have to move the entry table, then you have to get rid of the green wall that you used to love but have been wanting to change for a LONG time, then you have to paint the entry because you are sick of the f aux wall treatment and that means this...

      Blue paint and Board and Batten!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Which looks like this...
      Side note:  I am terrible at taking before and afters.  I always get into a project and then remember - oh ya!  Since the title: "middle afters!"  And my camera doesn't take great pics....maybe for my b-day. hint hint
                    Mirror - $10 Mapleton yard sale {That town has the best yard sales btw}The frame was an ugly old wood color nothing special.
                                               All painted and glazed.  Waiting to be reunited with mirror!
      Kind of regretting color choice at this point.  But I can't tell "J Dawg" that.. He'll freak. I have to stick with blue and make it work.  I am sure it will great?!?  My whole idea was to lighten and brighten???
                                                                Once again middle after...  The entry used to have a black entry table, lamp, and other what not that used to blow off {literally- since I live in the windiest city of all Christendom}  Not any more - say hello board and batten!
        FYI: over at House of Smith's. Shelley has an awesome tutorial for board and batten.
                                         Can't wait to show you how it going to look - Hello Gorgeous!
                                        The hallway was lined with pics, but those are now going on the blue wall...
                                        And these are now not over the piano, but are hangin' out in the hall way
                  " The table" with lame fall decor- I am making a trip to Ikea this weekend so I can jazz this baby up
                                                              Look at those sexy legs- so curvy!

                     And now you must wait for the final reveal. Poor "J dawg" is working his fingers to bones!
                       FYI: In the mood to paint??? These guys have several coupons out on Grocery Smarts right now.

      The great reveal

      What a ride this has been!  I have not been this busy, happy, and crazy ever all at the same time... Udderly Me is nearing the finish line. I want to take a minute and pretend this is an awards show {you know like the Grammy's or CMA's}.

      I want to first thank Justin, my best friend, obviously I could not have done this without you... I would not need a nursing cover if not for you{!}, Thank you for your support mentally and financially.  Thank you for saying "yes" to my crazy antics and playing along.  Thank you for not caring when the house is/was messy. I love you.

      Thank you friends/family.  You know who you are.  Thank you for letting me pick your brains, call you a million times, and for your listening ear. Thank you for giving honest criticism and ideas.  Thank you for having babies so that I am not alone.

      Thank you models.  Thank you for willingness to share your beauty and time.  I appreciate that you would put on these covers and act like you feel so glam.  I am so grateful to have such gorgeous nice friends - you all were wonderful!

      Thank you web designer Devon.  Mr. Devon is fantastically talented.  I first came to him with just an idea. He took my idea and turned it into a functioning company.  Thank you for countless hrs, and thanks to your wife who helped carry my covers during photo shoots while 9 months prego!

      And the award goes to.....................
      My kids.  The reason I need to cover my back!

      Red Rock Relay Review

       I never did post about our Red Rock Relay in Aug.  Better late than never!  What a blast.  181.5 in less than 30 hrs with 12 friends - what could be better than that? The above pic is Justin taking off for his first run -The Diablo Destroyer!
                                     This pic is me taking off for my first run. Didn't know it was going to be Diablo #2...just sayin {although I can't complain, because I ran the least of all} It really was a great run, I love the smell of two rotting carcasses infested with flies.  But it gets better...
       This pic is of me at the end of my first run...  I was passed by several people.  NOT HER THOUGH!!  I threw out my elbows and sprinted.  Really I sprinted and Kicked her trash :) {side note:  she probably started 10 min after me and stilled gained all that distance, and later that day, I saw her in the bathroom @ SUU - I hid behind a wall so that she couldn't come kill me.  Just sayin...
                                                          Umm. Ummm. you didn't smell after this run at all!
