Who is ready for the weekend? We have some fun stuff planned and I know Rowan is going to enjoy it. I can't wait to spend the whole weekend with my babe and our baby big boy.

I thought I would share some favorites with you. Hope you enjoy!

These swaddle sacks from Fawn and Sage are so cute. I remember how much Rowan loved to be swaddled. This time around I want to keep a nice little collection handy. I love the design of these and the fact that they come with a matching hat!

The Magnolia Journal is easily one of my favorite magazines these days. It is filled with inspiration...and it actually reads more like a book than a magazine. I really look forward to curling up with the quarterly issues and reading every word.

I am going to be living in light weight dresses this summer. This simple maxi dress looks perfect for the warmer season!

I have been gathering nursery inspiration, and while we are no where close to starting that room (because it is still our room right now) I have found some pieces that I really want to include. This sign from House of Belonging is calling my name. It will fit perfectly over the baby's crib!

Rowan is always asking for "ice cweam" and he loves strawberries, so this recipe may be perfect! We are going to the local strawberry patch this weekend to do some picking, and I plan to make some yummy frozen yogurt pops right away...he doesn't have to know that it isn't really ice cream! 

Master Bathroom Tile

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Okay, the house project has so far consisted of removing the patio off of the back of the house, cutting down a tree, digging a hole for the basement, refilling said hole, and praying that the rain stops and our back yard dries up so we can dig again. 

However, lack of progress does not mean lack of planning...and planning for pretty things may be the only way I keep my sanity. I am not the gal to come to for the building details like lumber and drywall and whatnot. I am more worried about what it is going to look like when the whole project is finished, and that means I am focused on the tile and flooring and paint. I have been pinning lots of inspiration, and recently got some tile samples in the mail that are beautiful!

I am really wanting a clean, bright, farmhouse look in the addition. I found these beautiful floor tiles that feel natural, and not too dark. Floor & Decor has great choices to choose from! I originally searched there site looking for tile for our shower, but ended up finding some for the floor as well. Dane wanted something textured and natural, and I wanted subway tile. After lots of scrolling I fell in love with the idea of pebble tiles on the floor and the herringbone subway tile for the walls! It is a pretty combination both of our wishlists. Don't you agree?! 

I love the gray tones that could easily be changed up a bit with some different wall colors or bright accessories. I like to switch up art work and such, so a neutral base is a good place to start! 
So, hopefully ordering tile samples counts as progress! I am imagining my family doing life in the new addition, but it will be so much better when I start to see walls going up. I promise I will share details as we continue...just pray that we get to do that soon! I am doing my very best not to stress out about it.

Family Fun Day

Tuesday, May 02, 2017

Over the weekend we decided to take a little trip to visit The Magic House. We have broke ground on our home addition, but it has been both problematic and stressful. A little time away was what we all needed. Plus, there may not be much time for fun family trips once the building begins. 

A little lot of rain didn't keep us from having fun. The Magic House was loaded with fun things for Rowan to do. He especially loved the water table. Luckily, they have drains in the floor...he wasn't exactly good at keeping water in the table. He also loved the kid sized grocery store, where he loaded up on milk...I am not surprised, and he was super proud of himself for climbing through wavy jungle gym. 

Sometime you just have to step away from the stress and have a family fun day! There is nothing I enjoy more than watching this boy learn and use his imagination.
