And baby makes four….

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography - Sew Woodsy

There is a new baby in town, and her name is Reagan! She arrived earlier this month and is absolutely perfect in every way! She is 100% opposite of her older brother and I'm pretty thankful of that. At least, so far she is! She's been a great sleeper and is so mellow and chill. I guess you have to be like that when your the second child. Both myself and the baby are doing great and are healthy. I'm recovering from surgery much better then I did last time around which is a plus. This time, I … [Read more...]

Beautiful Birth Announcements with Minted

Joyful Baby Birth Announcements

Thank you Minted for sponsoring today's blog post. As always, all opinions are my own. T-minus one week until baby arrives! I have just about everything done I want to get done, and have started narrowing down my birth announcement choices. A big thanks to Minted for providing us with birth announcements! Their product is my absolute favorite and I can't imagine working with anyone else. Sending out print announcements is a big priority of mine. I did it when Ryder was born and I plan to do … [Read more...]

Floral Girl Nursery Inspiration Board

Floral Girl Nursery Inspiration Board

Happy New Year! I'm finally sharing what I've been working on the past few months... another nursery! This time I get to design a baby girl nursery of my dreams. The sky has been the limits with this nursery (for the most part). I'll be honest I had already narrowed down my themes if we were having another boy, and then when we found out we were having a girl I was stumped. I had to go to the drawing board... I pinned a lot behind the scenes (thank you Pinterest for secret boards).  I went back … [Read more...]

Only Child Expiring February 2017!

Only Child Expiring February 2017!

Well I've been pretty absent the past few month and I can explain. You see... we've been working on another BIG DIY project. We are expecting our second baby next year! February, to be exact! We could not be more excited. I also must mention that I started this post last month and I never quite finished it. Going to blame pregnancy brain for that one! For a while we said we were one and done and had a change of heart last year. It was after we had our annual family photos done that we just felt … [Read more...]

Cruising with a 2 Year Old

Cruising with a 2 year old

  Oh boy. We've been back from vacation for over a month, and I've had the post written, but haven't had the time to sort through the 500-million+ photos we took. I've finally finished and am happy to share with you today!  All I can say is when cruising with a 2 year old... Expect the unexpected. Two year olds can be very unpredictable and let's face it--if you breath wrong they meltdown. I both love and hate this age. Hate the meltdowns but love watching their little minds work, figure … [Read more...]

How To Make Personalized Sand Buckets

How To Make Personalized Name Sand Bucket

I'm slow going (per normal) with sharing Ryder's Birthday party stuff. I didn't do as much as I did for his first birthday; however, I did make the cutest customized sand buckets as favors for his friends. I loved how these turned out. I'm going to preface we had over 40 children as his playground party this year. So I worked on these over the span of 2 weeks. But if you have less children these won't take as long to make. I order a case of 48 buckets from the Dollar Tree; however, during the … [Read more...]

2nd Birthday Construction T-Shirt

Over the next two week’s I’ll be sharing some cute things that I DIY’ed for Ryder’s 2nd Birthday party. Last week, I shared the amazing invitations and thank you notes we got printed from Minted. Today, I’m sharing a cute shirt that I made for Ryder to wear to his birthday party. We took the chance of having his birthday party outside at a playground. This is a big chance since the weather is so unpredictable in March/April in Florida. And boy did the weather suck the day of his party. … [Read more...]

Construction Birthday Invitations

Party Zone Construction Invitations from @minted

Thank you Minted for sponsoring todays post. As always, all opinions are my own. March always seems to be a very busy month for us. Jon's birthday is practically at the beginning of the month, some years Easter, followed by Ryder's Birthday. It's a little crazy busy for us. Last month, I reached out to my friends at Minted.com to help me with Ryder's 2nd Birthday invitations. I used them for his 1st Birthday invitations plus it's who we use to print our Christmas cards every year. I can't … [Read more...]

DIY Trendy T-Shirt: Call Me On My Cell Phone…

DIY Trendy T-Shirt Call Me On My Cell Phone

I'm sharing another DIY Trendy T-shirt today. I'm not gonna lie when I saw this old-school style rotary phone I immediately started hearing the "hot line bling" song in my head and that's where the whole "call me on my cell phone" came to play. I showed Jon, and he started laughing. I'm all about the witty toddler shirts lately. … [Read more...]
