The new and improved eShakti.com! And a coupon code!

Hello lovelies!
You all know how much I LOVE eShakti (here here)
I mean they do custom sizing and for someone like me,
who is NEVER in a "normal" size it's a lifesaver!
Well, they just relaunched their website
and they added MORE choices of clothing pieces!

http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Pants

http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Bright%20Ideas
 
Like SHORTS and JUMPSUITS and PANTS even!
And again, as a woman that chooses to dress a little more modestly
it's so hard to find shorts long enough to cover my thunder thighs without looking
like I had to use butter to get into them hahaha
Here are just a couple I'm drooling over:
 
http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Pants/Polka-dot-stretch-cotton-blend-bermuda-shorts-CL0035994
 
http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Pants/Pleated-denim-chambray-culottes-CL0035899
Of course they still have their beautful skirts and dresses and tops!

http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Dresses/Floral-embellished-low-waist-cotton-knit-dress-CL0036230
 
 
http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Skirts/Sash-waist-balloon-print-cotton-skirt-CL0035930

http://www.eshakti.com/shop/Skirts/Belted-poplin-skirt-CL0033354
 
Everything (or darn near almost) comes with pockets in the bottoms
and is customizable with sleeve options and lengths and necklines
and again, as a more modest person, it's wonderful to not have to be limited to a selection
and then try to figure out how to cover your shoulders or back ;)
And they have been so sweet to offer a gift code for $35!!
(WARNING: only good through June 21st!!)
Girls!
You HAVE to take them up on this offer and then show me all the pretty stuff you get!!
Disclaimer: I was asked to give a review and was provided with a gift coupon
but all opinions are 100% my own

Lately

I figured it's past time for an update on my adorable girls!

Rory is two weeks shy of 3 years old!
WHA?!
She's a little spitfire and usually I love it haha
We've been able to spend a couple Wednesdays so far going to a movie together
just the two of us (while Uncle Trevor watches Jadey)
and it's been awesome to have that one on one time.



She's my little buddy and I try to remember all the good things 
even when she drives me up the wall, like
"Mama you my best friend"
She gives hugs and kisses like candy,
she also tries to use them as bribes to get out of trouble.
She throws massive tantrums
and then when they're over, she comes out and puts her hands on my face
and says "Mama (or Mommy), I'm so sorry"
and it melts my heart most of the time.
 
She knows a lot of the words to "Blank Space"

 A feat that I THINK I'm proud of??
 
Jadey has been growing like crazy!!
She's coming up on 10 months old already!
She climbs everything!
 
 
 Gives me a heart attack every time she does it,
but I'm also used to it.
It's only when she discovers a new climbing place that I panic for a minute.
 
 
She's so close to walking she can taste it!

 And she's got so much personality and love.
She adores her big sister and they play together really well 
for which I am eternally grateful!
If they didn't get along I'd probably die.

All of the snuggles and giggles and loves between sisters 
just helps me realize how awesome my job is.
I get to help these adorable little minions grow into young girls and women!
How amazing is that!?
