2021 Gift Guides

Here it is!! My first ever gift guide collage. I’ve never done these before so I didn’t want to start out by curating 20+ gift guides for everyone you know. Instead I decided to start with the things I’m confident in and my gift guides can grow from here. With the Black Friday and upcoming Cyber Monday sales, I wanted to get these published so they can be a resource you. If you’re shopping for your #1 guy, baby/toddler girl, or need some ideas for yourself – hopefully these links will provide some inspo. All items are things we have or are on our shopping list for this year. Xoxo Happy Shopping!

Aztec Jacket

This Aztec Jacket is from my latest Pink Lily haul – linked here (wearing a small)! I’ve already raved about how stylish it is. I love the colors and it will go with so many items in your closet! Have to mention the price point because this is a popular style but I haven’t seen it marked as low as $64! I styled it with a white Henley and now a tan bodysuit. The sleeves and fit are also roomy enough to wear over an orange/rust colored turtleneck sweater (at least in my head that’s a cute fit).

I absolutely love styling this western look. With so many statement pieces, I kept the colors (outside of the shacket) pretty muted. This high neck bodysuit is the best material! I love how it’s meant to contour your body. Comes in several different colors and I don’t know why i’m only sitting on this neutral color – NEED MORE (TTS wearing an XS). But as I was saying…The aztec/southwest print is perfect to wear with a wide brimmed hat. Then, as I was grabbing for my neutral Vince Camuto booties, I found my new white western booties (TTS). The gold studs are my favorite detail and they’re a good shade of white. Not stark white, not an off white, just right. If you’re looking to jump on the white western boot trend, check these out.

This weekend we’re heading to a Holiday parade. It’s not baby’s first christmas but it kind of feels like her first all over again now that she’s a little older and will be able to react to the christmas lights 🙂 The temps are dropping in Ohio and we’ve already had our FIRST SNOW. Stay warm! xoxo

DIY Halloween Costume (for Toddlers)

Officially that mom who makes their kids Halloween costumes, lol! By “make” I really mean glue a boa to a shirt (*wipes off hands*). This costume turned out so cute!!! It was her second Halloween, but the first time we went Trick-or-Treating.

One of her first words was Duck and even before she could say the word, she understood what a Duck was. She’d point it out, she got excited when she heard a “quack” sound and always wanted her rubber duckie to hold. So I’ve known for awhile that I wanted to do this specific costume. I was worried about the hat because she haaaates hats and always pulls them off. Even when we received this hat in the mail, she wouldn’t keep it on. But pair it with the rest of the costume and she kept it on all night long! Even asked for it when it fell off. Even though feathers were shedding everywhere, this was so much fun!! We got a lot of compliments while we were out. It all went by so fast 🙁 Our Trick-Or-Treat is from 5:30-7pm and by the time you get something to eat, dress the kid(s), take all of the pics, and race through the houses in your neighborhood, it’s over in a flash! Guess this takes practice…

Everything you need for a Duckie costume is linked below:

Amazon Prime these items for Halloween weekend:

The exact products used in Olivia’s Halloween costume:

I love the duck slippers because they do have a sole on the bottom so I didn’t have to worry about Olivia not being in shoes. Plus she loves wearing the slippers around the house, especially since we have hardwood floors. The fleece lining keeps her toes warm. Her pants and shirt were ordered from Primary Clothing. I’ve never heard of this company but I was so confident ordering through them because I knew I’d get the exact yellow and orange that I was looking for. The boa was ordered from Amazon and was the perfect yellow to the shirt. I thought that was going to be such a challenge to match! I’d highly recommend using this company if you’re ever in need of something in a particular color. Link to the shirt and pants found here.

So I need to know for next year…. Do you dress up with your kids for Halloween on Trick or Treat night?? I think it’s so cute but also involves extra work 🙂 Leave me some ideas below!!! xoxo

What I wore in Martha’s Vineyard

Our week long vacation to Martha’s Vineyard consists mostly of going to the beach and hanging out at the house. Max & I always do one date night and we’re able to continue that tradition again, even though our daughter was with us (grandparents make the best babysitters 🤣)

Outfits inspo included in this post: travel outfit, brunch date, beach day, mommy and me matching (a must whether you’re on vacation, or not), and date night.

Travel outfit: This was our first long road trip with a baby. In fact, our one year old has never been in the car longer than a 1.5 hour stretch! We expected the worst, packed enough snacks, activities, and coco melon songs to make it straight through! I knew I’d be splitting my time in the passenger seat but also crammed in the back with Olivia to keep her busy. I needed comfort but was struggling to look cute once we reached Woods Hole and would be grabbing dinner/drinks at The Lookout Restaurant. This chambray jumpsuit was the answer! It is a jumpsuit and there are buttons, which cuts into your time at a rest stop. But, it’s functional and adorable! Paired with a white bralette for comfort and a headband turban for fashion.

Brunch outfit: another tradition I’ve made on the island, is to grab an açaí bowl from Blissed Out MV. I’ve been stopping here for years and more recently, they’ve added the cutest patio. Bright and colorful and tables are pretty available since we hit the towns on the “rainy” days. This white shirt dress from Petal and Pup has been sold out for awhile. As soon as it restocked, I jumped on the opportunity. Three quarter length sleeves, ruffle hem, and v neck make this the perfect style for summer! I loved pairing it with a straw hat from a local island hat boutique and fun sandals. You can also peep my straw purse! It’s been the best summer purse and it’s such a statement piece that it always gets a compliment!

Beach Day: This polka dot one piece is the Pink Lily x Caitlin Covington collection. This is my first one piece but the print and style is so feminine, I want to purchase more!! The straps are removable and so is the belt. Luckily, the material of the belt is made to last in water so you don’t have to worry about removing it. I love that it cinches your waist and gives you shape while wearing a one piece.

Mommy & Me matching: who doesn’t love a good matching set? To be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer. While the designs are cute, the print is a little too colorful and loud for my style. There’s a Lilly Pulitzer boutique on the island so when I saw this matching set, I knew I had to pack it for the vineyard. I love the bright top and pairing it with white pants to keep it neutral. The cowl neck is very flattering and the straps are adjustable. I love this bubble dress with matching bloomers for baby. We wore our matching outfits around edgartown and I noticed a few other moms matching their daughters. It will never get old for me!

Date Night: another loud and colorful dress. But I love the tie dye look! Sunset on the vineyard is one of my favorite memories. And this dress definitely reminds me of the sky after sunset – naturally, I had to take a pic! It’s already cinched at the waist so the tie belt isn’t really functional but I love the texture it adds to the dress. It gets chilly at nights (at least in June) so having long sleeves to wear during the evening was perfect. The dress is also a really good length. I was worried about it being too mini but I was able to wear it with heels (I’m 5’3” for reference). I purchased from a small boutique based in Charlotte. They’re not yet on LTK, but an exact link to the dress can be found here.

We tried out a new restaurant to us for dinner – Garde East. The location sits right on the harbor in vineyard Haven. The wine selection is impressive! They also have a beautiful bar area so I can see us grabbing drinks here on the water on our next visit!

That wraps up my Martha’s Vineyard vacation posts! It’s a really casual trip but it’s so fun to pack some dressier items too! Next up will be some posts about our trip to Portland, OR… Stay tuned! Xoxo

Father’s Day Celebration

Is it just me or is it tough to buy for the Dad in your life?? Six months ago was Christmas, three months ago was this guy’s birthday, and now we’re celebrating and thanking him for being a great Daddy! But, man! You can only gift him so many bottles of whiskey….

When a local butcher shop opened up in my town I thought it would be fun to order something my dad can’t get at his local grocery store. That’s one of my dad’s favorite things to do when he tries a new restaurant, travels, etc. “What is exclusive here, what are you known for, what can’t I get anywhere else…” These tomahawk steaks I picked up were dry aged for 45 days. We heated the grill for about 15 minutes and then grilled the steaks for a few minutes each side. Perfection! I made the Mexican street corn from my last post, potato wedges, and asparagus. Had so have something healthy in here! I know my dad has been thinking about the steaks all week! It was a great dinner to honor my Dad. I would definitely gift something like this again and I’d absolutely recommend checking out Macellaria If you’re local!

We celebrated with my dad a week early because we will be on vacation over Father’s Day weekend with my in-laws. This weekend, we will celebrate my Father-in-law and my husband! We will arrive to the beach on Saturday night. Sunday being Father’s Day, the plan is to spend the day at the beach and hit up a brewery later on.

I ordered this hilarious mug for Max. I found a company on Etsy that can turn your face into a simpsons character! Ever since Olivia was a newborn, Max has watched the simpsons with her! Just here and there – I think the show is nostalgic for him. But, now that she’s one, she’s recognizing the show and laughs when she hears the theme song.

This is a stock photo on their website
This is the proof they sent me from the photos I submitted

It’s really cool that you can choose how many faces you want on your mug (including pets!) And you can submit multiple photos for the faces on the mug. Believe it or not, we didn’t have a recent family photo. Okay, don’t believe that because we DID take a photo on Easter but it was outdoors and Max was wearing sunglasses. So instead, I submitted a recent photo of Max and I all dressed up at a friends wedding and then a recent and new favorite picture of Olivia. This shop combined my two photos to create this mug! I ordered the mug a little early because I didn’t know how long processing would take. The shop is located in NY which is fairly fast shipping to Ohio. The shop owner got back to me the very next day with my proof! Incredible turn around time! My plan is to surprise him on vacation with the mug. I’ll offer to pour him a cup of coffee in the morning and will test to see how long it takes for him to recognize he’s not drinking from a random mug at the rental property, haha!

Happy Father’s Day to your families!! Hope you can all spend quality time together – would love to hear your plans in the comments <3 xoxo

Closet Reno

Our house was built in 1923 and I actually think we lucked out with closet storage! We don’t have an owner’s suite, but we do have TWO closets of the same size on either side of our bedroom. It might not be large enough to hold allll of my clothes, shoes, accessories, but I’m so happy I don’t have to share a closet. I used to have space for clothes in the spare bedroom – and then we had a baby and she needed a closet for all of her clothes (future fashionistaaaa). I crammed everything from the spare bedroom closet into my closet and lately, I’ve been dreaming about how to make my closet more efficient. The obvious would be to clean out my closet – sell/donate/discard old clothes but what can I do to skirt around that? 😉

Thanks to our old house, my closet has slanted ceilings. There’s a hanging bar at the top of the slant and a hanging bar at the bottom of the slant (covered by the top bar). The bottom bar was good for hanging pieces I didn’t want to pack up in storage but it just wasn’t very accessible. The three-drawer plastic bin has been with me since college – moved from Ohio to Minnesota, back to Ohio, through multiple apartments and, to be honest, I’m cleaning it up and keeping it in baby’s closet for storage, lol. I found this closetmaid wood closet kit in an Ad and started to kick off the closet Reno. The closet kit came with a wood tower and three rods. Unfortunately, I was only able to use one bar, but it’s about the same size as the previous hanging bar and the shelving gave me more room for storage so it’s a win win. I’m not able to link the closet tower in the below widget, but here’s the exact link

I found this leopard wallpaper at Target. I wanted something neutral but with a fun girly print and it had to match our current dark gray walls in the bedroom. The wallpaper is a little more blue than it photographed online but it’s the perfect mix of everything I was looking for! I originally ordered one roll and went through that pretty quickly. I ordered a second roll and thank goodness Target has two day shipping so I didn’t have to wait long for the second roll. The wallpaper was the easiest way to cover all of the cracks and peeling paint in my closet. I ended up doing most of the ceiling and walls in my closet. I may still do the back wall because I have leftover wallpaper. TBD…

I’ve been finished with my closet for over a week and I can already see the clutter, lol! But that’s my reality and my closet looks 100% better than it did. I’ve also never color coded my clothes before. I’ve always paired like items with like items – long sleeve shirts, short sleeve shirts, dresses, skirts, etc. We’ll also see how long this color coding lasts. I see the appeal for aesthetics but I can’t say that it works for me.

Another home project done! We’ve also re-purposed our wedding seating chart for a stand up mirror, added window treatments, I hung my floppy hats on the wall, a faux olive tree, and next I’d like to replace our ceiling fan :). Linking my new bedroom items below! Next week I’ll be covering some wedding guest dress ideas for anyone who has Spring events upcoming.

Sephora spring event 2021

Ahhh one of my favorite sales of the year! It only happens twice a year and by the Spring, I’m ready to stock up on bronzers, tanning drops, and foundation in a darker shade! I love ordering new products on my wish list to try at a discounted rate too.

The sale is open to all Insider, VIP, and Rogue members! Use code OMGSPRING to get your discount on these items! If you’re not a rewards member at Sephora, it’s free to sign up & make sure to add your birthday so you can redeem a birthday gift too, yay!

Not pictured Drybar Detoc Shampoo because I need to restock my supply lol

I wanted to share my TOP PICKS for the sale. It was extremely hard to narrow it down because I use these products all of the time that I’m even restocking some (dry shampoo, tanning drops, tanning mist).

This isn’t my whole skincare/makeup routine, but it’s definitely the items that I rarely switch out so to my it’s important to keep them all in my picks.

Huda Beauty Nude Eyeshadow Palette – I absolutely love the shimmer in this palette. It’s great for Spring because it adds pops of pinks and purples to your eyes. I’d recommend applying an eyeshadow primer first so that the shimmer really sticks to your lid and doesn’t crease. I love how the palette has a brow highlighter, a light shimmery shade for my lid, and then a darker matte shade to buff at the outer corner of my eye.

St Tropez Facial Tanning Mist Spray – This is a new product I stumbled upon during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steals event (another one of my favorite sales!). I don’t like to use tanning products on my face because I don’t know if I should skip my skincare routine on days I apply or whether my skin will react and break out. I used this product for the first time last week and my husband even noticed how tan I looked (he’s not the most observant so when I heard that I knew the product was going to be used on repeat). I sprayed this mist after my skincare routine in the morning (even after the moisturizer! I would normally moisturize my body before using the tanning drops so I didn’t think this should be any different). Added bonus: This smells amazing!

D-Bronzi Anti Pollution Sunshine Drops I’ve been using this for over a year now. Remember how I said I didn’t use tanning products on my face? This has been a great alternative (before finding the tanning mist). I apply this either mixed with my foundation or before foundation (preference) and it gives you a nice glow plus adds color to your face!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I recently included this item in a blog post. It’s another new product I discovered this year but I absolutely love it. It’s a lavender scent and I like to use it on Friday nights so I feel calm and refreshed going into my weekend. The directions say use 1-2 times a week so I’ll typically apply it once during the week too. I wake up feeling really hydrated.

Huda Beauty Bomb Brows – I’ve already mentioned this brands eyeshadow palette above. I also have another double ended eyeshadow pencil from them that’s great in the summer because of the bronzed and shimmery color. I’m also obsessed with their eyebrow pencils. One side is a spooly and the other is a very delicate pencil. I have this in two colors because I like to line my brow and fill in sparse spots with the dark color, and then fill in other areas of my brow with the lighter color to add dimension. I’ve kind of always been afraid of eyebrows because I don’t want them to look too unnatural. This eyebrow pencil gives my brows a very natural and normal look.

Tartiest Lip Paint – This is a great option for a lip stain that isn’t going to transfer to your mask! I actually stocked up on Kylie Jenner lip kits at Ulta last Fall but I’ve also had this lip paint for a while and it’s really lasted me. I was always in the habit of applying lipstick and then putting on my mask and wondering why I bothered with makeup anyway! But this lip paint is the perfect solution. The color is a beautiful light/nude pink but they have two darker colors, as well.

Moroccan Oil Color Depositing Mask – I discovered this at the Sephora Spring event in 2020. The salons were all closed and I was ready for a color refresh (my grays were showing yikes). The cocoa color is very similar to my hair color. I’ve never used a box dye but I guess this is kind of similar. Apply to your hair, let it sit, and then wash out. I went overboard applying this to my roots to mask those dang gray strands. It didn’t meet my expectation masking the gray but my hair looked so vibrant and fresh! So as long as you understand the expectation, I would absolutely recommend this product because I feel like I can stretch out my salon visits. Plus, it’s only $7 even when there’s not a sale!

Inkey List Hyalauronic Acid – This item was also in a recent blog post. I’ve been really working on my skincare routine and have heard amazing thing about hyaluronic acid. It’s a serum that plumps and hydrates skin. Especially in these winter months, who doesn’t want plump skin? I hate battling dry skin in the winter and I can say that I didn’t have that issue this year. This product is smaller than I anticipated when I received it, but it’s under $10 and all you need is a pea size that you pat into your skin. I use this morning and night.

It Cosmetics CC Cream – This is my absolute favorite foundation for summer. It includes 50SPF and it’s a full coverage cream so a little goes a long way! Look at how well loved my CC Cream is! I reach for it all of the time – summer, going to the pool, running an errand, days I have a conference call but don’t want to do a full face of makeup, etc. My shade is Neutral Tan but I need a lighter shade for the winter when I’m more pale lol

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush – This blush is extremely buildable. It’s a color that I can use year round and I love the subtle shimmer to it too! My shade is Dazzled.

Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops – These are the best tanning drops! I first discovered them last year when I realized my beach vacations were cancelled and, I mean, how else was I going to get tan all summer with a newborn?? They smell really good and I mix with my moisturizer so they’re very hydrating! I use the Dark shade and you can apply as many drops as you want to control your tan. Just make sure to keep the drops even on both sides of your body 😉

Thanks for sticking with my post! I hope you can find some new products to try!! Let me know if you use, have tried, or want to try any of these in the comments 🙂

The Best Transitional Midi Dress

It was a beautiful sunny day with temps in the mid 60’s and some windy conditions. We were taking our one year old to the zoo on her birthday so I knew I’d be on my feet a ton! With this being one of the first (and rare) occasions leaving the house, I couldn’t wait to “dress up” aka get out of sweatpants! But, it was just a trip to the zoo – I couldn’t wear heels and a babydoll dress (or could I?). I knew these Nike Court Side Sneakers would be ideal for comfort and style. They’re still bright white since I never had many opportunities to wear them in 2020, ha!

This midi dress was the best choice because of the comfortable and lightweight material. The neutral color toned down the fact that I was wearing a dress to the zoo 🙂 Keep scrolling because this dress is ON SALE for $32 dollars!!

I love the versatility of this dress. It can be worn with sneaks and a Jean jacket – how I styled it for the occasion or can be dressed up with booties (like the web image) or heels and a leather jacket. You can add a felt hat. It’s all so cute!

The dress comes in three other colors and was part of the BFF Wayfair x Nordstrom launch between Dede (Dress Up Buttercup) and Emily (Champagne and Chanel). The Jean jacket I styled with the dress is also a launch from Dede’s “Detre” line in 2020.

Pantry organization

Yesterday, my baby girl turned ONE! Thanks to covid, and staying home, she’s seen approximately 10 humans, two dogs, some duckies, and a cat. Even though she didn’t really register what she was looking at and was more distracted by other kids, it was so much fun to be out as a family and watch her little expressions as she took in the new scenery.

Recently, I’ve been working on tidying up/spring cleaning/home organization. I’d love to reorganize my closet this Spring – and by reorganize I mean, re-arrange my shelving, add some fun wallpaper, and switch out my fall clothes to my spring/summer clothes. Ugh, I’m not ready for this project! Instead, I started with our pantry. When we moved in, we actually didn’t have a pantry. My parents renovated their entire kitchen – changed the layout, expanded their island, switched their cabinets, floors, backspash, etc. They gave their old pantry cabinets to us and the cabinets miraculously fit in our kitchen! I painted them to match our cabinets and they have given us so much more room! I’ve been annoyed with all of the packaging taking up space in our pantry. No matter how many times I’ve re-arranged our pantry, there’s someone in this house who can’t return the bag the way they found it 🙂

I ordered these air tight containers that came in a 12 pack to help with organization. I also had some dissolvable food labels to write the product and expiration date on the containers. I thought the I only had a few plastic bags but as I started pulling them from the pantry, they were never ending! I didn’t have a problem filling the 12 pack containers and I probably need more, eventually, but for now, it’s a start! The containers are stackable and have created a lot more space. It’s also easier for said person in this house to take out a container and return it how it was found 🙂

This weekend, the birthday celebrations continue! We’ll have one day with my parents and one day with my in-laws. I’m looking forward to sharing her party, and, naturally, our outfits 🙂

Olivia’s birth story

How can it be??? In 6 days, my sweet baby girl is turning ONE. I’ve held her in my arms for an entire year and I can’t help but feel emotional. I recently saw a poem by a.r.asher that read, “There is my heart, and there is you, and I’m not sure there is a difference.”

My due date was estimated to be March 11, 2020. Two of my favorite people, my grandparents, are no longer with us. The bright spot here is that my grandpa’s birthday is March 3rd (Happy Heavenly Birthday, Bumpy (IYKYK!)) and my grandma’s birthday is March 12th! I saw my due date being somewhere between their birthday’s as a sign. I love that my baby is going to share their zodiac sign and I’d love for her to inherit some of their traits. It’s so special to me that she was born on March 9th.

March 8, 2020: I started my Sunday like normal. Probably slept in, probably made waffles for breakfast. I remember it was a gorgeous day and we planned on taking a lot of walks and grilling spicy chicken sandwiches for dinner (even though I had a manageable pregnancy, we were anxious to meet our girl and were to the point of trying all of the old wives tales). I remember during one of our walks feeling a big cramp but it didn’t last very long and I didn’t feel anything else for several hours later. I had a nail appt (my last one since the pandemic began – RIP almond shaped nails – and I felt a couple more cramps, but still felt fine. I came home and we ate spicy chicken sandwiches outside on our patio and finally around 7pm, I started to feel more constant cramping. It was starting to feel stronger to the point that I text my mom and told her to keep her phone on her. I started to track the cramps I was feeling using my Ovia app. By 10pm I was feeling pretty uncomfortable and I got ready for bed and tried to lay down. My cramps were about 20 mins apart and it was impossible to get comfortable. I think I tossed and turned until midnight. Then there is no tracking on my app until 2AM so I think I did get a quick nap in, but by 2AM I came downstairs to the living room and watched Bridesmaids on HBO.

March 9, 2020: I kept tracking contractions and trying to keep calm and distracted. By 5:30AM, I knew my husband would be waking up for work soon and would see that I wasn’t in bed. I made him a pot of coffee while I waited for him to come downstairs. I logged onto my work computer and sent some of my usual Monday morning reports and emailed my boss/teammates that I wasn’t going to make it to work.

My contractions were really close to 5 mins apart and lasting a minute or longer. I was starting to get scared and worried that if we went to the hospital now they’d tell me it wasn’t time and we’d have to go back home and keep waiting. Finally, my husband came down stairs and told me to get in the car, we were going to the hospital! The worst thing they could say was ‘no’. It was about a 20-25 minute drive and we arrived around 7AM! That was pretty close to 12 hours of laboring at home.

In Triage, there were two other couples also coming in around the same time as us and a family already in the waiting room! We hadn’t told our family we were at the hospital because we weren’t sure what they were going to tell us. Finally, we were called back, I got hooked up to the contraction monitor and was told I was 4cm dilated. We were getting checked into L&D and were going to expect a baby today, ahhh! My parents live a little more than an hour away and my in-laws are 45 mins away. I have no idea what time everyone got to the hospital, but my parents, my in laws, brother in law, and sister in law all made it to the waiting room. It’s so crazy and sad to think that just 6 days later, only one support person could be in the hospital with you :(. My mama and husband were in the L&D room with me for this journey.

I did get an epidural and they had to take it out and start the process again because it was too high in my vertebrae and was causing my heart rate to spike. I remember not being able to control my breathing and felt very cold. I thought it was all normal and although I hated getting the epidural, it also numbed me so I could rest a little bit through these contractions.

The rest of the day is such a blur. They broke my water and gave me a peanut ball to speed up my dilation. My OB doctor wasn’t the on call doctor so I met the nurses and doctor not knowing if I’d deliver during their shift or get new nurses/doctors. Finally by 4:30pm it was go time. It all happened so fast and by 5:04pm I had a crying baby in my arms. <3

I was so hungry and so glad I had time to eat a bowl of oatmeal before we left for the hospital. But no sleep and no food all day, plus having a baby, I was exhausted! I remember getting the food menu and asking what I couldn’t have. The nurses told me there were no restrictions so I ordered the turkey burger, French fries, and brownie for dessert.

Sleeping in the hospital is so uncomfortable. They asked that we keep a specific light on which shined on my bed, there’s always someone checking on you or the baby so no matter how tired I was or how loud our noise machine was, I could barely get sleep. First night, Olivia didn’t eat very much. By the second night, she was cluster feeding and I was so exhausted, I contemplated asking if she could go to the nursery for a little bit, but the mom guilt was already kicking in!

Somehow, we’ve survived the newborn phase, we’ve conquered leaving the house with a baby and all of her things, and now we’re 6 days away from having a one year old under our roof. Even though 2020 kept us inside and at home, there’s no place I’d rather be than with my husband and our baby girl.

If you made it this far, hi! Our next baby challenge will be a long car ride and a vacation with a 15 month old (this June). Drop your travel tips below! No advice is too small, I’ll try anything to make our travels smooth sailing 🙂

Next week’s post is going to feature some home organization and/or home project while I plan and organize Olivia’s birthday party. In two weeks, my post will feature her decor, dress, etc! Check back soon <3
