Having two little girls has really been a dream come true. My family always says I’m playing with my dolls, which is kinda sorta true. #sorrynotsorry. When I was pregnant with Charlie I got it in my head that her room had to be floral with pink and light tones of sage green to match this cross stitch my mom had made of a pink … Continue reading A Little Girl Room, for Two
Just kidding, I’m sure she’s great. I just haven’t yet read her book, though I am sure I’d like it, and I haven’t watched her show yet, though I’m sure it would spark even more OCD in me. However, I do know I like to keep a tidy home. When we first moved into a space as “adults” I quickly learned that I liked to … Continue reading Marie Kondo Who?
Let me start by saying, if you have not been to a Hobby Lobby, PLEASE do yourself a favor and get to one ASAP. It is the best place for just about everything. Never ever pay full price, things go on sale weekly, and you can always use a 40% off coupon from their site. I always pull it up on my cellphone for easy … Continue reading “Get Out” 2.13.19 Hobby Lobby

In order for me to keep my cool, I need to control as much of the uncontrollable as possible. When it comes to potty training, the idea can be … Continue reading Potty Training in Style
Don’t get me wrong, being a girl mom has been the biggest dream come true. There’s pink and floral everywhere, colorful bows and matching outfits, dollhouses and ballet classes. But, what doesn’t let me sleep at night is what comes next. We always say Karma is a b*tch, right? I’m worried that what I’ve done and how I acted toward my own mother is going … Continue reading Why Being a #girlmom is Scary AF
When we moved to our new home we didn’t have the budget to start completely from scratch. For half the year we kept our queen size set that was my mom’s (in 2006!) and just lived with it. We had a 1955 ranch style home in Florida, and tiny old spaces is a kind way to describe some of it. It was charming and wonderful, … Continue reading Let’s Stay in Bed
