10,000 Followers On Instagram Calls For A Celebration!

September 22, 2016

When I started this little blog of mine, I didn’t realize what the future had in store… I created a brand new Instagram in June of 2014, a few days after I started TGD. From the ground up, I built a loyal and engaged following. I have worked so hard, built so many relationships, done so much research, tried different hashtags and filters, followed and unfollowed, commented, blocked A LOT (lol), and built an account that I’m seriously proud of. But never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have TEN THOUSAND followers… 10,000! You guys, I am still in shock! Last Sunday, it finally happened… after over two years of hard work! I am so grateful for each and every one of you that supports my family and my business!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my love for small shops runs deep. I loooooove supporting small businesses, especially when those businesses are run by hard working mama’s like myself. You’ll see me (or my kids) sportin’ small shops on a daily basis. To celebrate 10k, I’ve teamed up with ELEVEN boss babes (that I love working with) to give away over $600 in prizes to ONE LUCKY WINNER! But first…

Here are my favorite Instagram moments from the last year, featuring some of my favorite small shops!


« One of my favorite dresses (and shoes) of all time, both from RubyClaire Boutique. Oh, how I miss my bump! »


« The bump was never fully accessorised without a druzy ring from Wrenn! »


« Deuce’s debut on my Instagram… featuring Little Adi and Modern Burlap! »


« Mama Bear for life. »


« Can’t forget Papa Bear and Man Cub! (Courtesy of LBHAE) »


« Oh yeah, and Sister Bear!! »


« That one time we were suuuuuuper honest about our parenting skills (featuring Fresh Apparel Tees). »


« Oh my gosh, he was so little!! (Wearing Little Adi + Co. on top and bottom!) »


« They are living the baby and toddler life, for sure! (Tees from Fresh Apparel Tees – tap photo for other sources!) »


« Still obsessed with this boho chic outfit! (Clutch from Gentry California and shoes from RubyClaire – tap photo for other sources!) »


« And of course, this cute moment at Deuce’s doctor! (Featuring Little Adi + Co. on top and bottom!) »


« You know I love matching my little man!! These matching tees are from LBHAE and his bummies are from Little Adi! »


« I told you I love matching!! His cute little shorts are from Gentry California! »
