Hudson’s First Birthday

This week/weekend has been so crazy packed that I couldn’t even fit into one post. Well, at least not one post anyone would read. Wednesday, the 16th Hudson turned 1! This is baby #3 for me and I swear that with each kid, time just keeps going faster. I don’t know how we got here […]


I Made A Pillow

There is a phrase lately that I have been a little bit obsessed with. Let them be little. Lately I feel like everything is about more. Kids start school younger, go longer, and there seems to be this push for them to know more. I’m all for learning, but right now I just want to […]


Simple Spring Feather Mantle

A couple sheets of paper and my Cricut|explore was all it took to bring a little spring to my my mantle. I used the Cricut|explore to cut feathers, letters and paper bows. The feathers were clipped to the twine for bunting, put behind a frame for art and clipped to the Instagram display. A super […]


Buying Our First Home

This post brought to you by BMO Harris Bank N.A. Member FDIC. All opinions are 100% mine. My husband and I bought our first and only home in the fall of 2007. We didn’t renew our apartment least and moved into my parent’s house that summer while we began the process of house hunting. We […]


Bathroom Updates, Organization & Printable

You don’t have to compromise on clean to be green. This weekend we tackled our bathroom. Remember a week before my scheduled c-section with baby #3 when we gutted the bathroom? We finished it just in time and there it sat. This weekend it got a good cleaning, some reorganization and some style, because let’s […]


Robot Nursery

I have given you glimpses of Hudson’s room– like this gallery wall. The completely talented husband made all the art and you can get the blast off printable here. Clearly, since baby number three’s arrival almost 10 months ago, I have been slacking. The vision I have for this room hasn’t been met. I think […]


Shelf Styling, Because I Like Pretty Things

It is possible to have pretty things and kids at the same time. We kind of have managed to blend the best of both worlds– mom’s pretty things and all the kiddo stuff. So much kiddo stuff. More on the kiddo stuff later. Today, it is the pretty things. Styling a shelf is a little […]


For the Sake of the Children

When the Christmas decorations came down Eleanor was all about, what comes next? She was constantly asking to decorate. I didn’t feel like decorating, but it just made the kids so darn happy that I couldn’t help but share in their joy. Just a little. Kids have a way of doing that to you–of making […]


Kindergarten Chic Christmas- Handmade & Colorful

I know there are some bloggers out there rocking Christmas straight out of a Pottery Barn catalog and I’m all, look at my paper rings folks! I already blogged my dining room wall, which I like to consider the equivalent of my mantle. I also blogged about this fun kid project here. We left off […]


Gold Foil Doily Decoupaged Box

This is sponsored post, but all ideas, images and opinions are 100% my own. I was lucky enough to get a box of Martha Stewart Crafts for some holiday crafting. I was most excited to work with the decoupage. I have heard rave reviews from some of my blogging friends and couldn’t wait to get […]
