    DIY Coffee Gift Basket 3 Ways!

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dunkin’ Donuts®. The opinions and text are all mine. A coffee gift basket is an easy and fun gift that fits so many this holiday season! From teachers to neighbors, this gift basket will be loved and appreciated by everyone! How’s your Christmas shopping coming along? I remember reading something back at the very end of October, and some people were commenting saying they were already halfway done with their gift buying. Say whaaaat! I am so not that on top of things! Plus I kind of like to take my time. Gift buying and Christmas shopping is just…

    Where the Wild Things are First Birthday!

    Ahhh! I can’t believe my BABY is ONE and we’ve already celebrated his first birthday! Quickest year of my life..so cliche to say, but it truly was. I feel like with each kid, times just goes by faster and faster, its wild! This year has been so much fun, this sweet boy brought something extra to our family that I didn’t even know we needed and I’m so grateful every day for him! for all my babies! We threw a little last minute birthday party for him, shortly after we got back from our month long vacation in Maine! It was thrown together quickly, but we had all of our…

    Baby B’s Grey & White Nursery

    I can’t believe how long its taken me to share this nursery! Ive had it done since before B was born, and hes about to be 7 months old already! #canthandleit I blame it all on mom brain, it’s a real thing. Anyways, I love this room! Before my sweet boy was even born, I would go and sit in the rocker in there and just look around and enjoy it. It’s such a neutral room, so maybe its because of how peaceful I found it, but even still, I love to just hang out in there and play on the floor with him. It turned out even better than…

    DIY | Marble & Gold Bar Cart (for under $10!)

    I love having a bar cart! It’s such fun decoration, real cute and easy to serve friends a quick drink when they stop in! I’ve had this utility cart from IKEA for about a year, I spray painted the frame gold when I first bought it to match the rest of my house, but then I left it alone from there., at the time it was enough. Then I got bored with it, it was a little plain and I wanted something a little more dressed up!  So I recently spent a few weeks shopping around for a new bar cart. They’re pretty pricey, and I knew it wasn’t a…

    Christmas Decor around the House

    As always, the holiday season is flying by. Which is why I have absolutely no shame in admitting that we decorated for Christmas the weekend following Halloween. It’s definitely the earliest I’ve ever done it, but I was really feeling it this year, and honestly I wanted to extend my favorite season a bit and make it seem a little longer. My kids sure appreciate it! Don’t worry, I waited to start the endless Christmas movies, music, and eggnog until the minute thanksgiving ended! 😉 I wanted to share some of our Christmas décor with you today! I have to limit myself somewhat, since I have wild boys in my house,…

    DIY Rope Shelving

    I can’t even tell you how much I love these shelves! They’re so simple, so customizable, and pretty quick to make! My husband and I did it in a day, and most of that time was allowing the stain to dry. We built these for the nursery, but I would love to do something similar in my boys room too! As soon as I saw them on Pinterest, I knew we were going to make it happen! <– I pretty much followed her tutorial, so this is my rough go about, but she has more details 🙂 (The only thing I really changed was the size plank used to screw…
