Henry’s Nursery Inspiration

Before we found out the gender of the baby a few weeks ago, Jeff was absolutely certain we were having a girl. I’m not gonna lie, all his girl talk had me dreaming of a nursery full of pretty florals. Now that I know I’m decorating for a boy, I’ve honestly been kind of stumped…

Makeover Monday – Our Kitchen Progress

Now that school is back in session, I’m not going to have much time to focus on projects around the house. I still have a few things I want to finish, like painting all our interior doors, decorating Jack’s room, and setting up a nursery for the new baby. For the most part, though, any…

Jack is TWO!

I normally don’t share two posts in one day, but we just got pictures back from our photo shoot for Jack’s two year old pictures and they are so adorable that I had to share! We have used Heather Griffin from New Creations Photography for all our family pictures since we got married and she…

Back to School – New School Year Resolutions

Happy Wednesday, friends! Some of you might not know that I am a teacher by trade. I teach high school English, and tomorrow is my first day back at work after a wonderful summer off. It’s always hard to get back into the grove of work after so much time off and it can be…

Jack’s Mickey Mouse Birthday Bash

Last week, I shared Jack’s dinosaur birthday party and realized that I never shared what we did for his first birthday party last year. When he turned one, he loved Mickey Mouse (he still does), so we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed party. I ordered a few decorations from Amazon, but Jack’s cousin had…

Jack’s Big Boy Room Inspiration (and our parenting fail)

My little guy is officially two years old! The time has flown by since he was born and it has been so fun to watch him grow and develop his own little personality. I have loved every stage, from infant (which actually surprised me, because I’ve never been much of a baby person) to now,…

Dinosaur Birthday Bash – Jack’s 2nd Birthday

This weekend, we had a joint birthday party for Jack (turning 2) and his first cousin, Zachary (turning 4). We decided on a dinosaur theme, and for the most part we kept the planning pretty simple. I found these adorable invitations on Etsy and had them printed at Office Depot. I decided to use the…

Summer Adventures: A Day in Pawhuska, Oklahoma

Last week, we went on a family vacation with my parents to Lake Fort Smith in Northwest Arkansas. Since we were so close to Oklahoma, we decided to take a day and travel to Pawhuska, the home of the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. My mom and I have been fans of hers since before she…
