1. Kids Summer CheckList

    My kids finished school this week and that means summer has officially begun in my books! Since I am getting pretty pregnant {I am nearly 25 weeks… The time is flying!!}, I have been much more interested in shopping for their fashion needs than my own! So on my shopping list: camp essentials from bathing suits and water shoes, to comfy daytime adventuring outfits for the park, to “summer chic” looks for our beach vacations. Of course floral prints for Reese and “cool shades” for Brooks were a must!

    I must say I have been finding the CUTEST things … so cute, that I find me and husband looking for similar pieces for ourselves! So for those of you changing gears as well, I thought I would put together a little recap of my favorites for the different occasions!

    Shop my finds below for little boys and girls:

  2. Miami Playroom Tour

    So many people ask how I keep my house clean while having two little kids. The answer… I made them a playroom so fun they never want to play anywhere else!! Welcome to the most popular room in our home {ok, maybe the kitchen is – but this is a close second!}. We love this space so much; I love the natural light that pours in from our backyard and the sweet displays on our open-shelving, the kids love everything inside of it. I first decided todo open shelving because I wanted my kids to be able to reach up and grab books…

  3. The Sweetest Easter Kids Table

    Is this not just the cutest Easter display you ever did see? I am actually in LOVE right now. When it comes to Easter it is all about the little ones afterall, so why not make them feel extra special with a little tablescape dedicated to them? I found the perfect “non-breakable” centerpiece… a big white basket filled with faux flowers {from Michaels, but I linked up more options to shop online below!}. Then at my play table I of course made everyone a little basket of treats… my favorite take-home being a jar of candies with a customized lid…

  4. Floral “Four” DIY

    So many of you asked about this “Floral Four” that we created for Reese’s Birthday Party that I had to finally share this DIY on the Blog! It really is such a cute centerpiece for any party and was the perfect backdrop to our food buffet. So get out your scissors because this is a fun one!! What you will need: A styrofoam cut-out of the number you want to feature. I bought a huge piece of styrofoam at Joann Fabric and a large card stock number 4, traced the 4 on to the styrofoam, and cut out with an exacto…

  5. Princess Party Keepsakes with Shutterfly

    After Reese’s bday party {see the recap here} I wanted to create some special keepsakes from the day for Reese’s room, so I headed to Shutterfly. I knew Reese would love seeing photos when she entered her room, or better yet, have a story to tell friends when they asked about the photos, and I love the range of options at Shutterfly {especially ones in my home’s aesthetic!}. There’s just something extra special about customizing a gift or memory to have in your home forever! So what did I choose… first of all, I just love their collage frames because they allow…
