I have a fun little post today! One skirt and two looks! I saw this skirt online and fell in love with it because of the embroidery. I'm a sucker for embroidery! I styled it for some PNW spring weather, but when I was headed to Arizona and needed a outfit for a rehearsal dinner I thought of this skirt again. The idea was born of one skirt two ways to wear it. This great skirt works for both Spring and Summer and I will show you how.
Ok first remodel post for the blog!! I'm so excited to start sharing with you our remodel, but we haven't finished every room so I'll be slowly sharing each room once I feel like it's finished. I'm dying to show you our new "wine room" next but I'm waiting to get some art for it so I think I'll have to wait a little longer. I'll give you a little backstory on the house then start with the official remodel run down.
I like to keep new toys and activities in our bathroom to keep Leo entertained while I do my hair and makeup in the morning. I was looking for a new activity and noticed how much he loved getting things out of my make up drawers and dropping them into the hamper. The idea was born to do an Easter Egg sorting box. It was so quick and easy and we will be using it long after this Easter weekend is over.
If you are in need of a quick and easy way to dye easter eggs, I have the answer for you. I really wanted Leo to dye eggs but knew he was too little to dye them the traditional way. I did a little looking online and found a lot of ideas but this one seemed like it would work best. Not only was there NO mess but Leo was able to get into it.
Shout out to all the romancers like me who love everything about Valentine’s Day! From heart shaped bacon to lipstick on the mirror... I have so much fun finding the cheesiest ways to remind those that I love, that I love them on Valentine’s Day!
Today’s DIY tutorial (designs included) beats the typical drugstore card. Forget I mentioned cheesy earlier because these three card designs include lucky scratch tickets for date night ideas, love coupons, and reasons why I love you! Who wouldn’t love receiving one of these.... hello to an evening at the lake followed with a nice long back massage!
It's been a year so I'm reflecting back on our best baby items. I left out all the toys etc but you can look back at other posts to see the other toys and other smaller items. Here are the links for more in detailed posts from all the months 0-3 Must Haves, 3-6 Must Haves, 6-9 Must Haves ! Anyways I'm just highlighting some of the best of the best items we have used this past year.
Our baby turns one tomorrow. This is way more personal of a blog post than I normally share, but the words just seemed to flow. Looking back this post is probably way more for me than it is for anyone else. But I have so many friends with new babies, friends that are pregnant, or for those mommies who's babies are all grown up maybe this post will be a fun walk down memory lane. So this is my view on how we survived the first year of parenthood.
Quick and easy blog post today. It's my BIRTHDAY hello 31! Last year I was 40 weeks pregnant and having contractions all day. I am excited to have a drink to celebrate this year. So because it's my birthday I'm sharing with you a few of my favorite things.
I cherish my mornings more than ever since becoming a Mom, for a million reasons. For the moments I get to enjoy a cup of coffee and read a magazine before Leo wakes up or when I get to be sitting cross legged on the floor playing with our baby. Because of these moments I tend to stay in my Pj's longer than I used to.
As important it is to unplug with your kids and devote time to them it is equally important to do this with your spouse and by yourself. After Leo goes to bed most nights we watch TV or a movie. That doesn't leave a lot of time for conversation. So twice a month we try to unplug in the evening and spend time together, this means good dinner conversation and usually a game of cribbage. But sometimes, after dinner we go upstairs and both spend some time reading.
