Father’s Day 6.0

It’s that time again… Each and every year I search the house for that same old blue and brown striped tie of Ryan’s, that old Tom Ford bowtie he wore only once, and the ratty old American flag hat that happens to be his favorite. Every year I promise myself that I’m going to hide these items away in a safe spot so that…

Mama’s Summer Favorites

I feel like I got a collective “enough about the kids” sigh from y’all on instagram…and I know when to take a hint. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Us mamas (and non-mamas) need to pamper ourselves, too. I totally get it! So, I went ahead and rounded up my 10 favorite summer products as promised… and then kept on going and shared some of my favorite summer wardrobe…

Graduation Book

The general idea: Chose a book for each child Ask child’s teacher to sign it at the end of each school year Present book to your child at a crucial point in their educational career (8th grade/high school graduation)   The Details: So I found this idea on Pinterest forever ago and, having been a teacher myself, thought it would be so cute to…

THE Baby Favorites Post

Here it is- finally! The Big Baby Favorites Post I’ve been promising!! I get asked lots of questions on Instagram about my favorite “this” or “that” or get asked to link an item Max is using.

Max’s First Birthday

“Wild ONE” Some HOW, Some WAY this tiny newborn of mine turned a full year old. I’m just over here trying to wrap my head around the fact that I’ve known this sweet boy {on the outside} for 365 days. It’s pretty unbelievable- in the fact that I can’t believe how fast it went, but also in the fact that I can hardly remember…

Q’s Room Makeover

The decision to give Q’s room “a little facelift” started with my ridiculous desire to wallpaper every room in the house. Add in recent discussions we were having about switching out her queen bed for two twins and the decision to redo the ENTIRE room was basically made FOR us. Me. It was definitely all my fault idea. Once I knew I wanted to…

Master Makeover

I know I said I’d post this ages ago, but…life. Anyways, when we moved into our house we did the kids’ rooms and the living spaces first and just kinda left our bedroom hanging until recently.
