What's in My Toddler's Bag


Getting through the baby stages is one of the most tiring, amazing, trying, and beautiful times. Leaving the house is a full on adventure, as if you were packing for a weeks vacation to the beach. You must bring burp cloths, changes of clothes, formula, water, bottles--seriously, the list goes on. Although my kiddos don't require as much these days, I still carry around my Lily Jade bag that holds all of the essentials I need for my little ones in this stage of life. Here's what's in my toddler bag.

I have always love cranberries in anything. I make a delicious cranberry glaze that goes over our turkey, and I cool the cranberries to use as a cranberry sauce. I also love me some orange cranberry bread, or lets not forget about the Cranberry Bliss bars at Starbucks.

Hearth & Hand Must Haves

Building a custom home is a very stressful job-- there are contractors to find and so many decisions to be made. At the end of the day though, you have a beautiful home that you created. 
I have only shared pictures of the house on my insta-stories because I want to do a huge reveal. But, since we are all obsessed with the new line Hearth&Hand from Target I figured I'd share a couple pictures. Now that our home is in the final stages of building, it is now time to decorate! Obviously this is my favorite part, because well who doesn't love decorating a beautiful new home? 



When Target announced they were partnering with Joanna Gaines I knew I was in trouble. I have loved the show from the second it started, and would hop on a plane in a heart beat if my husband insisted on taking me there. When I woke this morning bright and early (thanks to time change) the first thing I did was pick out my must haves, and added them to my cart. 
Hearth & Hand Must Haves; Magnolia Must Haves; Fixer Upper Decor; Joanna Gaines Decor; Target Style; Target Home; Target Decor; Magnolia for Target; Waco Texas Design

I always loved decorating for the holiday; after having kids it brought a whole new level of excitement. The second the holiday items hit the store my little one has to have it all. Since we already have so many holiday items; I try to stick to a budget when purchasing all of the trendy decorations.  This year for Halloween I set my budget at $25. I made a list before I went in hopes that I would just get those things, and not add things to my cart I didn't need.

Gift Guide for Your Little Artist

I was never an artist, so I'm basically running with the fact that my son loves paining every hour of the day. 

I've rounded up the best kids art supplies! These make the best gifts for any time of year, Toddler art supplies, Kids birthday gift, unusual birthday gift, gift guide, kids Christmas gift, stocking stuffer, toddler present, melissa and doug gift, crayola gift, creative toddler

For a good long time (ok, well a year or so) Bennett would not sit down and play with Playdoh, paint, color, anything. It could be that he spent a ton of time doing it at school, so doing the same thing at home just wasn't what he had in mind. However, in the last couple months he's fallen in love with all things art--and our house has turned into an art museum and I'm okay with that.
