DIY Infant Strawberry Costume

DIY Infant Strawberry Costume

I can't believe it's October already. I've been meaning to share this adorable and easy-to-make DIY Infant Strawberry Costume for the past month. I whipped this up last year for Ryder just a few days before Halloween. As you are aware of by now, we love Halloween at my house. He had THREE costumes last year. Yes, three. We had one costume that was handed down to us. And then  one that we bought, and then I felt some mom-guilt and felt the need to make him a costume. I'm going to admit, I … [Read more...]

Moving Announcements with Minted

ink moving announcement message

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Minted. I was paid in the form of product. As always all opinions are my own.  We've officially moved in, and now its time to spread the word to our family and friends that we've moved and we have a new address. Of course, the first place I turned was Minted. They have the highest quality of printed goods, and I used them for all my custom card printing needs from holiday cards to first birthday invites. They are my go-to source. So, today I'm here … [Read more...]

We moved last week! One week ago we were sleeping in our home for the second night. I've been trying to start a new routine with Ryder plus unpack our home. It's been slow going so bare with me over the next few weeks as we get back into a routine and the boxes are slowly unpacked. … [Read more...]

Renovations Update

entertainment center gone

Hi guys, thanks for baring with us. We have been chin-deep in renovations. If you follow on Instagram I've been sharing a bunch, but in case you don't follow me on Instagram I figured I would share a few photos of what we've been up too. Today was suppose to be moving day, but we've decided to finish up on a few more things around the house before we move in. So hopefully if all goes well we will be moving in by mid-week. We started by removing all the carpet from the bedrooms. After Jon … [Read more...]

New Home Tour – 2015

new home front of the house

I mentioned last month, when I made the announcement that we sold our home that i would share with you pictures of our new home once it was officially purchased. We closed a few weeks ago and are currently chin-deep in renovations. This weekend coming up is a big weekend for us since we have a lot on the agenda and depending if we get it all done will depend if we get to move in next weekend. I'm trying to be optimistic but I think moving will happen the week before Labor Day if not actually … [Read more...]

The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes – Weekend Getaway

The Ritz-Carlton Spa Orlando Whirlpool

Last weekend, Jon and I spent our first night away from our spunky little toddler. We were both a little nervous to leave him, but knew our marriage desperately needed it. It's been 16 months since it was just two of us. 16 months of our life revolving around another human being. If your a parent then you get my drift. We opted to spend our first night away in town. This was also a belated anniversary getaway for us as well. We chose The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes here in Orlando, … [Read more...]

{Old House} Home Tour

It's closing week on our new house. And in an effort to hold all the excitement a little more I figured I would share photos of our old home. In all the years we've been blogging we've never done a home tour! Ever! Well we did a home story with but never shared the full home. I can't believe it. So I'll share our old home and then next week (once we've closed on our new home) I'll share our new home and then each year I'll try to share our home as we update and renovate. Because we … [Read more...]

Whale Nursery

gorgeous whale nursery

It's been two weeks since we sold our home and it still doesn't feel real. I've been all out of whack and in a blog funk. Since we are currently in between homes I figured the best thing to do right now is to finally reveal the full whale nursery in all its glory. I'm a little sad we had to say bye to it. We are going to keep most of the same elements the same but add in a few new ones to work with the new space we have. Plus we will be converting Ryder's once nursery into a big boy room sooner … [Read more...]


home for sale

We officially sold our first house today. It's a bittersweet day that's for sure!! Over the past 6 years (5 years and 11 months but who's counting) we've spent countless hours making our house into a home. We've kept the news quiet because we wanted to make sure everything with the sale of the house went through. So here is the back story of how / why we sold our current home. … [Read more...]
