Iris’s Outfit | Flower Crown | Bamboo Plates

For Iris’s 1st birthday in May (how has it already been almost 2 months?), we threw her a Garden Party. I mean, with a name like “Iris”, how could we not? For the party favors, we gave the guests iris bulbs in little flower posts that they could take home and plant in their gardens. We added garden-y touches around the house/yard with watering cans and ceramic pots. And for food we offered

Daddy Daughter
By | LifeStyle | No Comments

It warms my heart getting to see my two girls with their dad. The father-daughter love is so special, and I know that first hand from my own relationship with my dad. They way you feel like your dad can do anything in the world and will always protect you…the absolute best! For Father’s Day, I always try to find a unique gift to fit all three men in my life (my dad, my grandpa, and my husband), so I’ve put together a list of gift ideas that I think any guy would love.

Hosting Tips
By | LifeStyle | No Comments

We’re hosting Christmas at our house again this year. We’ll have my parents and my sister, plus her little family at our house for five days, and we’ll also have some of our extended family over for a Christmas Eve dinner. I am so excited to have everyone here, but that also means I have a lot of preparing to do…clean the house, shop for food, make the food, and get rid of the ants that started trying to make a home in our kitchen and bathroom when the rain started. I’ve got a lot do, but this isn’t my first holiday hostess gig, so I’m feeling pretty prepared thanks to

I absolutely love the way Iris’ room turned out. It’s simple and neutral with whimsical touches and soft pops of pink. My favorite thing in the nursery is the song lyric sign hanging over her crib. Iris was named after my mom and my grandma (who passed away when I was 12, but I was very very close to her). Iris’ middle

I struggled to find a crib mobile I loved for Iris’s nursery. Well, actually, all the ones I found that I loved were over $100 and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a crib mobile. So instead, I decided to make one. This crib mobile only cost me $15 to

I’ve seen the tall wooden measuring stick growth charts at Pottery Barn Kids that cost $100 and love them, but didn’t want to spend that much money, so I decided
