Family Photos

December 29, 2016

We had our family photos taken this fall and I love how Stacie captured our little family...despite half of my crew being uncooperative. Family photos are so important to me and I love seeing how our family grows. I've made a deal with my husband that we will have photos taken every fall from here on out as either my anniversary present or birthday present...because let's be real, one great photo is really all I ever want! 

Those blue eyes. When I was pregnant I prayed for my baby to have blue eyes (amongst many other things of course!), and God came through......times a million. 

 Dang it I love these two.

Hudson loves to give me eskimo kisses, it's kind of our special I love this shot so much!

My big boy. 

Such a stinker.

Sadie's "kiki" made it in to every single photo.

I'm not planning on doing maternity photos, so I'll cherish these forever.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box

December 28, 2016

As you know, I've been receiving a monthly POPSUGAR Must Have Box...and it's my most favorite thing. It would be the perfect gift for a friend who has everything! Each month you receive a box filled with full sized fashion, home, beauty, or food items. December's box was one of my favorites so far! 

In this box I received a catchall and ring dish from Odeme. A snowfall pendant by Baublebar, the cutest bobby pins by Mane Message, a lipstick pill by Winky Lux, baker's dozen classic chocolate chip cookie mix by Sister's Gourmet, and color restore protecting top coat serum by Dessange Professional Hair Luxury. Such fun stuff!

You can try the Must Have Box for yourself and save $5 off your first box here

POPSUGAR sent me #MustHaveBox but all opinions are my own.

Baby Girl Nursery Artwork

December 21, 2016

This year for Christmas we decided to gift baby girl with some beautiful artwork for her nursery! And I am obsessed with how it turned out! Her room is still a work in progress but I'm patting myself on the back for having this much done and still 11 weeks until she joins us!

It all started with the Floral Bright print on the left from Minted. I fell in love instantly and knew it would be the perfect color scheme for her everything was built around it. And I LOVE it.

I just love the colors....everything is so bright and cheerful....there's whimsy yet it doesn't scream baby nursery. I'm sure she'll have this artwork for a very long time!

And I'm dying over her mobile! Courtney from Boogie And Lu made it for me and it's perfect! Stay tuned for a fun giveaway coming soon!

The other artwork in her room is also from Minted! It's called Carnation Spray and is so gorgeous in person. Minted seriously made shopping SO easy! Once I found the floral print I started searching by color...and everything just came together. I had all of the pieces framed too, and it was the BEST decision ever. I'm never turning back! Everything arrived in perfect condition and ready to hang. It seriously saved me SO much time. 

And all of the pieces are super light weight, which I love. It made hanging everything a breeze. 

I know baby girl is going to LOVE her nursery. I seriously can't all feels so real now! Now if only we could decide on her name....

If you're wondering why I'm only showing you one part of the room it's because the rest isn't finished.  Her room is actually really big, and has a huge walk in closet! We still need to organize the closet (my wedding dress and several other things like birthday and Christmas presents are hanging out in there now), put together her dresser, get a hamper, and hang some more art. I have this shelf coming from Minted soon, so I'll share the final reveal once it's all done! Here's hoping I don't loose my steam before then. 

Minted has curated a fresh and unique collection of evolving artwork that you won’t find anywhere else. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! Be sure to check out Minted for the best artwork selection. They have so many fun and beautiful pieces that would make the perfect gift for someone special in your life!

Thanks to my friends at Minted for making this nursery and blog post possible!

Christmas Pajama Party!

December 15, 2016

It's my favorite time of year....Christmas pajama party time!

Every year I tell myself I won't go crazy with buying Christmas pajamas....and every year there are so many cute ones that I can't resist. We have so many I didn't even get a photo of them all...ha! But in my defense, several of Sadie's pjs are hand-me-downs from basically every year we'll have even more pajamas. Yay!

This year my sweet friend Katie who lives in Washington (we went to college together and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding) surprised us and sent the kids these matching jams from Hanna Andersson. And I am in LOVE. With Katie and the jams. This was actually our first Hanna Andersson experience and now I totally get it...they are the softest pjs ever and they hold up so well in the wash...they still look brand new. Hudson's are a little big on him so I think they'll fit next year too, which has me thrilled! You can find them on major sale here

These two. I just love how much they love each other. 

Cutest feet I ever did see. 

And if you've been a long time reader, you know these bear fair isle pajamas are a 4-years-in-a-row favorite in our house! I didn't have to buy them this year because Hudson's still fit from last year and Sadie is wearing Hudson's hand-me-down from 2013. I just love them so much! You can find them on  sale too, here

Sadie's favorite pajamas this year....also by Hanna Andersson (here). She LOVES her Christmas "kiki" jams! And I do too! They are big so I think they'll fit her next year....and I might just have to pick up baby girl a pair too so they can match. My heart already can't handle the cuteness. 

Who knew playing on Gigi's kitchen stools would be so much fun?

My big boy. He's obsessed with matching his sister now...and it's the cutest. He's also obsessed with these dino Christmas jams (these were only $8 with free shipping after Thanksgiving, so keep an eye out for that same deal next year!)

Sweet girl. Wouldn't smile. 

Hudson loves playing with my mom's snow village. I have fond memories of these houses growing up, so I love that he loves them too. 

Both kids have these super cute bear jams....but I'm missing a photo of Sadie in them. Blogger fail. 

Merry Christmas Pajamas! I can't wait to see your little ones in their best pjs! Be sure to link up below now through December 26th. And tag us on Instagram too using #ChristmasJamParty16
