Speak Wines LAUNCH!

September 30, 2016

Happy dance! Happy dance! Not only because it's Friday but because the Speak Wines collection 3 launch has taken place and I've been part of that happening! What an exciting thing to finally be able to share but I can't wait to blab your ears off about this awesome project I've been working on with them.

Showering Hollyn Grace

September 29, 2016

Here they are- the limited and few shots I was able to capture at my baby shower my mom threw but at least it's something to document the special day she planned for myself and baby Hollyn! She's always so prompt and on top of making any event memorable and enjoyable for all parties and the day didn't disappoint. From the sweet details of pictures of Andrew and I as babies to using a crib to collect cards and gifts, it was so lovely!

Party Prep

September 27, 2016

It is literally insane and so ironic to me we have our three kiddos birthdays all within weeks of each other. Drake and Emery are hard to combine with such an age gap but you better believe next year, the girls will be sharing a party and probably for the rest of their lives. Haha!

House 3 | Downstairs Bathroom

September 26, 2016

Happy Monday! How was everyone's weekend? We had my baby shower which turned out so beautifully! I wasn't super intent on taking pictures (shame on me) but I have some so I'll share it here on the blog this week sometime. My mama is one talented party thrower- let me tell ya! :)

Meet the Quinny X Rachel Zoe Collection

September 20, 2016

top- Pink Blush Maternity | leggings- BLANQI (code aubrey25 for 25% off until midnight!)

We got the most exciting package in the mail about a week ago and it's one Emery is all sorts of happy about! A new stroller and car seat! It was time to make the jump and get something for her so we have her current convertible for Hollyn and we went with the new Quinny x Rachel Zoe collection that just recently launched. Best decision ever. We've always had great reviews with Quinny and Maxi Cosi so it was brainless knowing we wanting to jump on board but the detailing on this collection is so beautiful and luxe! It really brings a whole element of chic to gear with babies and toddlers.

The Current Skin Break Down

September 14, 2016

Good morning! Do you ever just have the best night's sleep after not sleeping for a serious amount of time and wake up so refreshed?! It totally changes your mood and makes you feel like a million bucks. We've been sick here and there and I finally could breathe through my nose again so even though the night wasn't a long night of sleep, it was restful and for that, I'm appreciative.

Prepping for Baby

Talk about a list, yeah? I've been collecting my thoughts on a few things we've purchased and used the first time around as well as ones we haven't yet but are excited to try with Hollyn so compiling it all in a post has been on my to-do for quite some time.

What are some things you used and couldn't live without when a newborn joined the fam? Either for mama or baby...?

Dining Room + Rugs USA Giveaway!

September 12, 2016

The dining room at our old home was literally my favorite room in the old house simply because of the space it offered, the light, bright and casual yet comfortable feel it offered and mostly because the table was hand crafted by my dad. When looking for new homes (and food for thought when building custom) I knew we had to be smart about a space that would accommodate a 10 foot table... yet again, comfortably. This home does just that with about 2 feet of space on either side of the head chairs and plenty on the sides. It was a dream come true seeing it planted in the new space and dare I say, I love it even more!

House 3 | The Family Room

September 7, 2016

How's everyone's short work week going? It's taken me an extra day to get back in the office because we had a baby appointment yesterday and Emery has a runny nose so she's been extra clingy. We didn't do much for the holiday but a small BBQ with Andrew's family at our place. We did host draft night Saturday too so we've been good breaking in the new house with entertaining! ;)

Toddler Fights + Eating

September 2, 2016

Eating time in our house has taken a turn for gambling. I never know if she will want to eat and if she does, how much she will it. This is seriously foreign to me because she's been an eater from day one and never was picky until about 3-4 weeks ago. It's like a switch went off and I'm desperate to get her to maintain a healthy routine with fruits, veggies, grains, dairy.

5 Tips for Keeping Your Home "Clean"

September 1, 2016

I may not be the only one who's a little OCD when it comes to a clean home and that's A-okay! I always grew up with expectations of having my room picked up, things were in it's place if it wasn't being used and I was my mom's helper every Saturday cleaning the inside of the home and grocery shopping while my brother helped my dad outside with landscaping and maintenance. I think those expectations for our kids are great core values and teaches and molds them to be more responsible and clean adults.
