Top 20 Wedding Registry Essentials

*I have not been compensated for any mention of brands in this post. This post has been created purely for personal purposes*

As many of you lovely readers already know, Mr. Hunky and I tied the knot a couple weeks ago on April 5 (2014). I guess that makes me Mrs. Hunky now huh?! Weird.

Throughout my days dutifully accepting the title of bride (also known as the woman you must agree with throughout the entire planning process or else risk your throat being ripped out by bridezilla.... whoa, to harsh? I promise I wasn't that bad!) I learned a thing or two about my wedding registry after spending hours upon hours doing what I though was perfecting it. Now that the wedding is over I see the truth - you never really know what you want/need until after your bridal shower and wedding.

Get Ready to Party!

Before you virtually smack me, know that the blog hasn't been updated because I FINALLY tied the knot last Saturday April 5th! It was an absolutely amazing and crazy busy week but the end result was so worth it when we were pronounced husband and wife and had our first married kiss.

Now that the wedding planning is over and the big day has come and gone, I am ready to buckle down and retransform this blog into what it use to be - packed full of fun DIYs, Crafts, Recipes, Reviews, & Giveaways.

It Works!

I am so excited to tell you guys about a great opportunity I have decided to become a part of!  Do you remember the It Works! Body Wrap review and giveaway Alex and I did back in September?  I was very skeptical to try the products because everything I had seen and heard about them sounded to good to be true, and I was always taught if it seems to good to be true it probably is, but when I was presented with the opportunity to try the products risk free for a review and giveaway I thought why not give it a try!

Plan Your Life {Erin Condren Life Planner Review & Giveaway}

*Mommys Craft Obsession received a complimentary Life Planner for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

One fun fact about me is that I've always had a slight obsession with school supplies. Okay, make that major obsession. As a young adult I couldn't wait for back to school season and I would walk up and down the aisles of Target again and again, picking up miscellaneous items that I didn't necessarily need, but wanted.

The one school supply item that I was always severely disappointed in were the planners. I could never find a planner that had everything I wanted; organization, style, practicality. To this day I still get a new planner every year although I may not be the best at remembering to actually use it all 365 days of the year, I still love having one on hand. Yet I still haven't found a planner that fulfills my crazy expectations. Until I found the Erin Condren Life planner.

Shark Steam & Spray Mop Review: Why I'll Never Go Back To A Standard Mop!

*Mommys Craft Obsession received a complimentary Shark Steam & Mop in exchange for this honest review*

"Babe, I need a new mop".
"Okay, I'll try to remember to get you one next time I go to Costco".

That is the short conversation that Mr. Hunky and I had just a few weeks ago when I realized that my Swifter Mop just wasn't getting the job done. I was frustrated with how long it took me to clean our tile and I needed something to make my life a little simpler. When Mr. Hunky returned with the new mop I had asked for, I couldn't say much aside from "Thank You" since I realized that I hadn't exactly elaborated on the type of mop I was hoping for.

He brought me a standard "mop & bucket" type mop. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it out. 3 hours later my floors were mopped and I was frustrated beyond belief. There had to be a better way to clean. And there is!
