Gift Guide for Him

One thing I love about holidays is picking out gifts for my husband. Big or small they are all on my radar. I never have a difficult time--and really any time I see something at the store I know he would love, I jot it down to give as a gift sometime throughout the year. So many of these items I have bought for gifts, and if not they will most likely be given sometime this year.  This is a gift guide that will be very useful when you are looking for the perfect gift for the guy in your life. Check out my other gift guides for him here and here

Five Musts When in Maui

Living 45 minutes from the beach, I never really vacation beach side. It's just not somewhere I gravitate to. I love big cities, so naturally we have always visited one of the popular cities in the US. However, when my best friend decided she was going to get married in Maui, I couldn't say no. 


Hawaii was one of those places that "I'd love to go someday, but it's not a MUST". Let me tell you friends, it's a must. The sites, sounds, and world is just different over there. It's gorgeous, the land just captivates you and you just feel relaxed. I've been told this by so many people, for so many years it just didn't seem possible that somewhere like that really existed.

Carson's Space Nursery Inspiration

Happy New Year friends! We woke up to a bitter cold on January 1st and have been loving it here in Florida. If you follow me on instagram, you saw that I'm focusing on the word "intentional" for the year 2018. Being a stay at home mom, it's easy to get side tracked and I want to be more intentional with my days and my times with and without the boys. With a big move coming for our family this month, I want to share my room inspiration with you all for the plans I have for each room. 

Knowing we were moving shortly after Carson arrived, I chose not to go all out for his bedroom like I did Bennett's nursery. We decided to keep it as is and create a gorgeous nursery when we moved. Now the time has come and I have loved gathering ideas from all over for this gorgeous space filled room.

First Birthday Gift Guide

Somehow my sweet little one turned one in the blink of an eye. It feels like just yesterday I was pregnant and figuring out life with two

first birthday, gift guide, Christmas gifts, toddler gift guide, birthday gifts, gifts under $50, kids birthday, Toddler Christmas Gifts, one year old gifts, what to buy a baby

I say it all the time on my instastories, but I am in amazement by how different siblings can be. Come read about Bennett at a year here. We had a little birthday party last Saturday with some close friends, and it was a perfect intimate time. We rented a bounce house for the bigger kids, and they played in that the whole time. Carson enjoyed the cake (or should I say icing, he would spit the cake out). I'm so excited to see where this year takes us!

Prepping for the Holidays with Little Hands

As the oldest daughter and the only daughter in law, I have taken it upon myself to host holidays. I actually love throwing parties--preparing my house is one of the biggest steps in the party process. I'm here to share you how my little man and I prep for the holidays.



My floors receive a lot of traffic--from dirty shoes to sticky crawling fingers these floors see it all. Because of this they often need a good clean wipe daily, but when company comes I have to break out the big guns and power clean them. I was lucky to find Bona PowerPlus, and I'm loving the way it's making my wood floors look.
