Beach Dreaming

Hey guys!  It's been a little while since my last post...We have had a crazy busy week with demolition being in full swing at the new house. While we are elbows-deep in 1960's tile, fixtures and parkay floors.  I can't help but think about relaxing on a beach somewhere.  Drink in hand with the sound of waves crashing at the shore.  Hopefully you are going somewhere fun this summer, so here is the adorable beachwear that I have been eyeing lately.  

 I have to admit that I really don't love bathing suits.  I've always favored one piece suits over bikinis--especially after having a baby.  Thankfully, one pieces have come a LONG way and there are tons of super cute options available!

Mother's Day gift guide

One of my favorite parts about any holiday is hunting for the perfect gift.  I tend to get a little carried away and go overboard.  Just ask my husband. Right babe?! Since Mother's Day is right around the corner, I am more than happy to roundup my favorite picks for every budget!

Mother's Day gift guide

1. Watercolor Pajama Set - I could live in a cute set of p.j.s if it were socially acceptable and these are only $20!

2. Ashley Brooke Designs Coffee Mug - I feel like every Mom says, "Ain't nobody got time for that" at least once a day!

3. Best Mom Apron- The ombre color combination on this apron has totally stolen my heart!

4. Tag Necklace - This is the perfect Mommy necklace.  Simple, gold and gorgeous!

5. Recipe Box - I have been eyeing this recipe box for ever. Rifle's citrus floral print is beyond compare.  

6. Gold Straw Tote- Have you checked out the Lily Pulitzer line for Target?  Designer pieces for a steal of a deal!  Lovely fabric lining + tassel detail, yes please!

7. Capri Blue Volcano Candle- one of my favorite all time scents..We buy ours locally at Vertage Clothing!

8. Floral Notepad- every girl should own a set of hand-designed stationery.  

9.  Crabtree & Evelyn Bath/Shower Gel- I have recently become infatuated with rosewater fragrance for aromatherapy.  It does wonders for stress relief and softens dry skin!

Happy shopping, everyone!

afternoons with my girl

Afternoons with Evie just keep getting better and better.  These days she loves to blow bubbles, sidewalk chalk, pick wild flowers, host tea parties and play outside.  As she was blowing bubbles the other day, I prayed that I would always be able to remember that exact moment-- 2 years, 5 months, and 3 weeks old giggling as the wind blew her bubbles away.  Watching her play outside is my favorite way to unwind after a crazy day.

Let's talk about this sweet embroidered top...it was $11 from Old Navy!

Evie's big girl room

As of today, we are officially homeowners again! Yay!  We have so many rooms to work on, but I decided to start with Evie's new room first.  Planning her nursery while I was pregnant was so much fun that I couldn't wait to get started on her big girl room.  This is such a bittersweet transition for us.  Sister girl probably slept 5 whole months total in her crib out of 2.5 years because she prefers a plush queen-size mattress.  (of course, she does!)  So, I will fore go the toddler bed in hopes of our girl sleeping all night by herself in a big comfy bed.  I found tons of amazing beds, bedding and accessories online and don't know how I will ever choose?!?  Here are my favs:

Oh, to be little again!  I have a feeling her room will be my favorite room in the house.  Stay tuned for more house updates!
