Photo Journal: Halloween 2019

Thursday, November 14, 2019

Halloween 2019- one for the record books, fresh fallen snow had us feeling like it was Christmas in October! I swear, the older the girls get, the sweeter the holidays feel, we had a few last minute costume changes (thank goodness for dress-up clothes), but everyone looked cute as can be, complete with fake hair and snow gear. Thankfully the snow didn't stop us from carving the biggest pumpkin we could find in the patch, trick or treating with our best buddies and making trades for all our favorite candy. Now the question is, how long until the girls find out Scott & I keep eating their candy once they go to bed... 

Holiday: Adding Touches of Pink

Sunday, November 10, 2019

It's no surprise we are a big fan of PINK over here and with all of the blush Christmas decor I've been seeing, we may just have to jump in on the pink trend this year! I love keeping our regular home decor and other holiday decor neutral, that way we can add in touches of different colors in inexpensive ways from year to year. It doesn't cost a lot of money to swap out a few throw pillows or even a new blanket to give your holiday decor a little refresh. So, what do you think? Are you on board with the pink trend, or are you sticking to the classic red and green?

1: Fair Isle Pillow- I love the pom pom corners and the textured dots too, the color pallet is just perfect and this pillow could even stay out throughout the winter!
2: Velvet Pillow- I originally bought this pillow for Avery's room, but it looked so perfect in our living room, it gave me the touch of pink idea!
3: Happy Holiyay- I grabbed this pillow for Avery's room, I think the bright color tassels will look adorable on her bed and add a little fun and festive touch. 
4: Merry Everything- I love this pillow next to the square pink velvet pillow, and it even has a little red and green in it, which will look great with your classic decor too!
5: Ballet Bunny Ornaments (Tutu Option/ Glasses Option)- How adorable are these little cuties! I love the velvet ornament tie and think they would be an adorable gift topper. 
6: Natural Nutcracker- Adding in a little natural wood touches mixes perfectly with the pink and this cute guy comes in a snowman and a mouse version too!
7: Cup of Cheer Towel- This little tea towel would make the best grab bag gift, pair it with one of the cute mugs or a Starbucks gift card. 
8: Tassel Garland- I can't get over all the gorgeous garland options this year, this one would look so pretty mixed in with a faux greenery garland, or strung throughout your tree. 
9: Christmas Mugs (Classic Car / Stocking)- Who else can't get enough holiday mugs!? 
10: Bottle Brush Trees (Dark Rose Gold / Set of 3/ Light Pink)- Bottle brushes can be found ALL over, but I especially like the pink options, such an easy way to add a little touch of pink!
11: Cozy Blanket- I love rolling up and using throw blankets as part of our decor, it's such an easy and functional way to add your accent color!

Holiday: Christmas Card Photo Inspiration

Sunday, October 27, 2019

I am SO excited for our Christmas Tree farm family photos next weekend and couldn't help but put together a style board of some outfit inspiration! When it comes to family photos, I love to start with one outfit or color scheme and build from there! I found the blue and green plaid dress for Avery and decided to use that as our base. I love the idea of layering a sweater over some of our favorite tutu dresses for the little girls and have had my eye on a pleated skirt for my own holiday outfits. For me, it's all about mixing timeless pieces, while also weaving in some trendy pieces and just having a little fun with it all, because, let's get real, the actual photo taking will be a bit of a circus ;)

Our photographer, Krissy from Bella Nicole Photography will also have a vintage truck AND a snow machine for these mini-sessions, literally what my Christmas Card photo dreams are made of, I can't wait to share the photos with you friends!

Isla Eat's: Parent's Choice with Walmart

Sunday, October 20, 2019

Striped Sweater (Walmart) / Tutu Dress (Walmart

One of my favorite parts about being a Mom is cooking for my little ladies, I love to see what foods they love and how each of them have their own "tastes!" When it comes to little Isla, she is all about being independent! She loves to feed herself and I love using tools that help her successfully eat all the foods she loves. 

(Sponsored) This time around, our meal time essentials come from the Parent's Choice brand at Walmart. The no-slip silicone sectioned plate fits perfectly on her high chair, or if she insists on sitting at the table in a big girl chair,  it works great on our dining room table too! Sectioned plates have always been a favorite of mine, I love that it helps me keep meal time simple- a protein, a fruit/veggie and a grain, done and done! The little silverware is the perfect size for toddler hands, Isla LOVES scooping up her yogurt or mac and cheese and I love that they are just the right size for her to feed herself. 

Now, when it comes to cups... we have tried them ALL! Parent's Choice has cups for every single stage, ranging from bottles all the way to "big kid" cups. The 360 no spill cup teaches the girls how to drink without a sippy cup or straw and the best part is, they are spill proof!

Take a look at some of our other favorite feeding must-haves from Walmart and share some of your feeding must-haves with me!

Holiday: Christmas Tree Inspiration

Sunday, October 13, 2019

Did you know it's less then 75 days until Christmas... yep, the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner and I can't wait! Decorating our home for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do and this year I am so excited to be working with King of Christmas to make our home feel extra festive.

We can't wait to put up the Prince Flocked tree in our living room this year. I have narrowed it down to three different possible ways to decorate our tree, but I still can't decide. I'm leaning towards the Farmhouse Inspired Tree, but there is just something so sophisticated about a more glamours tree for the living room and something joyful about the vintage look. Tell me your thoughts, which look should we go for this year?

I'll be sure to share the final looks, along with a step by step tutorial on how to make your tree look like it was decorated by a professional!

Photo Journal: Family Photos 2019

Monday, September 16, 2019

I am so excited to share our new family photos with you, taken by Krissy from Bella Nicole Photography. This was our first time working with Krissy and we can not sing her praises enough! Not only was she wonderful with the girls, totally patient with our circus and easy to work with, but is clearly extremely talented! We are so very thankful to have photos like this to remember a time in our life that can often feel like a total blur. Before sharing more of our beautiful photos, I thought I would share a tip or two about taking family photos that I have gathered throughout the years.
