Holiday shopping, yep!

You can thank or curse me later, but this is your new addiction. I am sorry! But it’s a really great way to organize your shopping. I made a folder or “board, kind of like pinterest) for the dream list of stuff to get Atlas, and I have done one for our home, and have just started a fashion one. In the middle of doing this, they did a little feature on our kid picks! Color me honored. Reason I think this is so perfect right now is, I have to start organizing holiday shopping. I am 1/2 way done!

Instasale Sneak Peeks!

I know, I know. I am kinda phoning it in this week with the lack of DIY posts, but with good reason. Today is day six of being sick. I finally started to get my voice back yesterday after three days of zero voice. If you are our insta-friends, you know all about it. Speaking of….   Yesssss! We are hosting our first #instasale ! I am so excited. I love the idea of flash sales and pop up shops! We have a bunch of rad finds, and we are going to hook you up! How to Instashop! For those

What I Want For Mother's Day

I think I am pretty easy when it comes to shopping. I have a few things I want every year, and Joey always seems to find a way to get the goods on special occasions + he is super amazing about surprises! This is my first Mother’s Day and I am so excited! I really don’t care about the gifts, but the hubs insisted, so I got to thinking what do I want for Mother’s Day!? I love these stackable number rings from Lulu Frost. I also love the idea of getting Atlas’ birthdate, and mixing the metals! He was

Another great baby find

How much would you spend on a crib? A mattress? I thought around $100 was the going price for a crib and another $100 for a good mattress. And like everything else we have given our baby, a lot of thought went into the whole sleep issue. I am scared. to. death. of SIDS and doing something which may lead to autism. We have a family member who quite possibly became autistic from having their crib next to lead paid. It’s a reality (1 in 80 kids, 1 in 55 boys!) that’s scary with an unknown source, and guess what a real

Throwing in the Towels

  We are giddy getting ready for spring and summer. Nothing better than having some friends over for a BBQ, or some fine dining outdoors. Now with a bebe, we have been searching for a good outdoor solution being he isn’t quite ready to sit up in the patio furniture, and is too young to just “set free” in our ungated backyard. These sweet ombre towels from target may be the solution. I am also swooning the beach umbrella to protect Atlas from the sun, and love that it’s big enough for Joey and I to pop under and hang

6 Parent-y Things We Can't Live Without

We are parents. It’s a very cool and very weird thing to accept. One day you are shopping for heels, the next you are buying tiny little onsies. There isn’t much of a transition. Everything and nothing chances all at once. You are the same person. Maybe with a bit more patience. Perhaps you have the ability to function on 1/2 the sleep, but your core is the same. I had all these rules before Atlas was born, and the parents smirked, and the non-parents nodded their heads like I had the master plan all worked out. Things like “nothing made

Top 6 Spring Must Haves in Our House

I am collecting pretty Spring dresses as inspiration to lose this baby weight I gained. 15 lbs down…..and a lot more to go! Thank goodness it’s warming up. It’s been fun shopping for a little man, and surprising how quickly he grows out of stuff! I found some super cute stuff for him this Spring and can’t wait to coordinate. Oh yea, I’m that mom. 1. 2. 3. 4.

Gearing Up For Spring

Clothes. I miss clothes. I went through my entire pregnancy refusing to buy maternity clothes because, let’s face it, nothing is going to hide the huge bump – and who really wants to bother to disguise it? Pregnancy isn’t slimming, and the clothing isn’t attractive, and it swells your feet up (and your fingers, and other things…) leaving you with little desire to shop for “normal stuff”. My feet were so swollen when we left the hospital, I couldn’t wear shoes! After about a week, some stuff started to shift back to where it should go (or it’s correct size), and since my feet

Five great girl gifts for the holidays!

Happy Monday friends! We have been scrambling to get things for baby in order, host Christmas at our home, and throw Joey’s grandpa his 90th birthday.

For today though, I thought I would share some great gifting finds. 1. Beauty Water System by Jonathan Product What’s it do: Purifies your shower water so you get the softest hair and skin/dyed hair lasts longer Who’s it for: Grat for anyone really, but the fashion savvy ladies will love it most. What’s it cost:

Play Money

Hello! We are back from a great trip down to sunny Florida, where we had our very last vacation as a family of two! We spent the week in the sunshine and with our toes between the sand, while I ate everything in sight (I have been SO hungry lately!), and we enjoyed time with my dad. I am not the best relaxer, haven’t had a lot of practice at it, but I am working on it. Needless to say to anyone who knows me at all, those quiet moments turned in to mental list making moments. First thing on
