Day 1 and 2 Commenting Challenge!!

I am linking up with Jenna’s Journey for her 3rd Annual Commenting Challenge!!

I did this last year and found some great new blogs to follow!! 

For all the new visitors….welcome to Little Carrigans!!!  I am Kim and I am a true Southern girl…you should hear my accent!!  I live in NC with my husband Chris who I have been married to almost 13 years and I am a Mom of 2 boys…Maddox is 3 and Ryder is 1!!  They are 2 days shy of being 2 years apart and we just recently celebrated their birthdays!!! You can check out their Construction Bash here!! They have my heart… I adore them and love being a Boy Mom!!!

I am a hairstylist!!!  I love my job!!  I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t want to be a SAHM!!  I am very thankful that I set my own schedule so I take 2 days off during the week and the other 3 days I pull about a 12 hour day!!  Those days are tough b/c I don’t get to see my boys much but I think it just makes the time I do have with them that much sweeter!!  I just recently stopped working on Saturdays and that has made a HUGE difference!!  We can actually spend the day as a family and I love it!!

I LOVE to blog and I LOVE reading blogs!!!  I think it would be safe to say blogging has turned into a hobby!   I started my blog when I found out I was pregnant with Maddox but I did not post regularly. (like twice!!)  When Maddox was 6 months old I was inspired by a friend who had started a blog.  I was doing her hair while we talked about it and that night when I got home, I pulled up my blog, dusted it off, and have been hooked every since!!   I use the pictures that I take throughout the day or week to inspire each post!  I’m not a great writer but blogging has definitely helped me.  I use this blog to capture our life…. our day to day and the boys milestones.  This is our family scrapbook and I want to have it published into books one day… have you done this??? Any recommendations on what site to use??

Thanks again for stopping by!!! Please feel free to send me any questions!!

Oh yeah…and last but not least…I am a child of the KING!!! I love my lord and savior and I love to share how he works in our life!!

Hey girl! So glad to see you joined in again this year! I want to print out portions of my blog to, but I just haven't done it yet. I've heard that some people use Blog2Print, but I don't really know how it all works!

Stopping by from Jenna's blog for the commenting challenge. What handsome boys you have. I have a 10 month old who HATES shoes too. I have been looking everywhere and finally found some that he will leave on, the Robeeze soft shoes Robeezemini shoes , and a pair of Riley Roos that we have just gotten. These are more "walking shoes" but he isn't too bothered by them

my oldest boy would LOVE a construction party, he is all kinds of obsessed.

Your hair is gorgeous, I'm super hair-impaired so I'm jealous.

Hi! I'm a fellow boy mommy (I have two and I'm pregnant with my 3rd boy) and I also live in NC. Love your blog, your boys are too cute! I use blurb.com (it's either that or Booksmart.com, can't recall) to print out our family books. It's free software, you just pay for the book when you order it. I've used them for 5 years and love having all the memories on hand. Just wanted to stop in and say hi!

I believe that some people use Shutterfly to print their photo books. Good luck!
