Yay for more nursery projects!! My last project was a DIY Baby Mobile, if you’d like to check it out. I’ve always been a huge etsy fan, but especially for art work and prints to hang just about anywhere in my house. I wanted to share a couple of cute etsy shops and show you where I found some of my favorite prints for the baby’s room!
I keep seeing these really adorable pacifier clips, but I thought I could probably attempt to make them myself! So, I did a little research and found out that they’re not so difficult to make. Also, one clip costs about $20, but you can make almost 20 clips for the same price. Here’s my tutorial on how to make your very own braided and bead pacifier clips.
Over the last few days, I’ve had some time to do a few nursery projects! One of them was a fabric mobile I saw on Pinterest and etsy. I figured it looked easy enough to make and it turned out super cute. I’m excited to show you guys what it looks like once it’s hung up in the nursery. Here’s my step-by-step directions for making this super easy and adorable fabric ribbon mobile!
Step 1: Search your local craft store, Walmart or home craft bin to find the perfect ribbon and fabric for your mobile. I like choosing a variety of ribbon types so you get some dimension and variation. You’ll want to decide on your nursery colors first. I went with pinks, yellow, turquoise, greens. I wanted her room to be feminine and cheery. Continue reading
The heat has really been kicking up lately here in Georgia and my belly has been growing by the day. With our first baby on the way and so many fun things to do in Georgia, I made it my mission this summer to make the most of all these cool adventure spots. I also wanted to scout out future places to take this baby next summer when she’s been out in the world for a few months. 😉 With the help of friends, I’ve been knocking things off my summer to-do list. Two things I really wanted to do this summer were visit Berry Patch Farms and the Anderson’s Sunflower Fields. They did not disappoint and neither did a few afternoons spent with my sweet friend, Kristin (who sweetly took most of these photos)!
At the end of this post, you can shop this look and find a few of my other summer recommendations. Also, I’ll be doing a post soon about my favorite summer maternity items!
Back in June, we had a gender sonogram to find out if we were having a boy or girl! We decided to not find out the gender in the room at the sonogram, but instead wait an entire week to have a gender reveal party. We had the sonogram placed in an envelope and handed it to our friend who also happens to be amazing at baking cakes. Another friend brought the cake to our house on the day of the party and we were able to find out with our loved ones whether we were having a boy or girl! Sadly, most of our Florida family and friends couldn’t be here, but thanks to Facetime and modern technology, it still felt like they were part of the party.
Hi friends! I thought I would do a little pregnancy update about what I’ve experienced in the first trimester of being pregnant with our baby. Pregnancy has been a really cool thing and a bit different than I expected, but in a good way. If that makes any sense? I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect because so many of my friends have been pregnant and the one thing I learned was that it’s different for everyone and every pregnancy. Hope you enjoy a few photos, as well! Ps. Here’s where we made our big announcement.
If you missed our Iceland video and big family announcement, it’s posted here! This post is all about Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital and only actual city. It’s quaint, charming and wonderfully friendly. When we were there, it was freezing (as you can see from photos), but so worth the visit and we’d happily go back again. Here are a few of my recommendations on places to stay, things to do and restaurants. Continue reading
We finally got around to posting our video from our Iceland adventures. We waited to post it for a very special reason….but you’ll have to watch all the way to the end of the video in order to see what we have to say. I promise to post photos and recommendations from our Iceland trip soon, but in the meantime, enjoy my all time favorite travel video!!
Happy June! Summertime is upon us, so I thought I’d share my top 5 favorite summer trends. I love trends, but I also love classic pieces that you’ll get to use season after season. So, I’d say I tend to follow the trends that I think might stick around for a bit. But at the end of the day, you’ve just got to choose pieces for your closet that you love and feel comfortable wearing. If you like bright colors but the trend is to wear white, then wear your colors boldly and with confidence. I think clothes are great and all, but it’s always more about clothes just complimenting the person that you already are on the inside.
One Piece Suits
Okay, I mean, we’ve all seen this video of the moms who expressed all of our thoughts on swim suit season. If you haven’t seen it, just watch it now. You’ll thank me later. With that being said, I love this solid one piece swim suit trend and I hope it stays.
Hi everyone! I haven’t been on the blog lately with finishing up the school year and a couple of other weekend trips. I always say things will slow down, but they never do. 😉 Here’s the last of our Ireland photos! Before we left Ireland to head to Ireland, we decided to take a tour from Dublin to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway City. We did our tour through Wild Rover Tours. If you don’t have enough time to rent a car and drive around Ireland, these day trips are wonderful. I love them because someone else does all the work and you just enjoy your day. Hope you enjoy our last few photos…can’t wait to share our Iceland travel tips and photos!
