Valentine’s Day Boxes

Trying to explain time to a toddler can be a tough one, especially when nine months sounds like a short amount of time, but can seem really long. Because the baby will be born around Easter, we tried to give Peyton a better sense of how much time would pass by explaining the holidays that […]

Santa’s Hot Chocolate Station

Last week, we hosted a pancakes and pajamas party with a few friends. The kids had a blast running around in their pjs, eating pancakes and decorating gingerbread cookies. It was great being able to have some time to catch up with my friends too! The kids all played so nicely together. We are so […]

DIY Santa House & Nativity Ornaments

Every year we like to make the kids’ grandparents and great-grandparents some sort of Christmas craft or ornament. This year, I had a ton of popsicle sticks and wanted to somehow include a picture of the two of them. That’s how these sweet little santa houses and nativities were born. I ended up using their […]

Christmas Bead Garland

About a month ago, the kids and I ventured to the Christmas antique markets in the area and it actually went better than I expected. I go all the time with Peyton, but this time decided to bring Emory with. I knew it would be crowded and I was outnumbered and pregnant, so I told […]

DIY Floral Wire Bunny Ears

I’m a sucker for bunny ears this time of year. The kids always look SO adorable in them. Target sells them every year, but to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about what they had at the stores near me. There are so many cute small shops that make the most gorgeous floral ears, but because […]

I’m pretty proud of my (normally) procrastinating-self. I got a HUGE head start on collecting gifts this year because I knew I wanted […]

Now that all of the Thanksgiving craziness is over, it’s time to start thinking about the most wonderful time of the year and I couldn’t be more excited.

Valentine’s Day Box Inspiration

Nothing says I love you more than a heart-shaped box filled with goodies -am I right? Along with baking buttermilk pink donuts, I decided I’m going to start a tradition of giving my loves their own Valentine’s Day box each year. The idea came to me after giving Peyton her first box last year. I […]

Handwritten Christmas Wrapping

My husband is one of the greatest wrappers ever. No, not the freestyle type – although he would beg to argue on that one – I’m talking gift wrapping peeps. He’s so good that it actually bothers me. You want to know why? Because I don’t know how it’s humanly possible to be such a […]
