It's Holiday Card time!

Can't believe we are 50 Days away from Christmas- my favorite Holiday of the Year! One of the hundreds of reasons it is my favorite? The cards we get in the mail with our family and friends beautiful faces on them. Displaying the cards is always so much fun!

For last year's cards we had the talented Shan Cait Photography take our photos up North and I love the way they turned out! She was so lovely to work with and put our entire family at ease - we all know trying to get a family photo is one of the most stressful experiences! Below are a some of my favorites. The cards we ended up ordering are at the end of the post - as always we went through Minted for their quality cards and how easy they are to use. Their platform is very intuitive - and their self addressed/stamped envelope process is a piece of cake!

Here is the card we ordered through Minted

Amazon Prime Day Favorites - July 10 @ 6 PM

Amazon Prime Day is a great opportunity to pick up items that have been in your cart but you haven't made the move on! The best tip I have is to be ready with a full cart so that you can purchase easily should your items go on sale and take advantage of the "watch this deal" button - Amazon will let you know when the deal has gone live:

(the Thermos above is awesome- Sloan has the silver one - it doesn't leak and has a pop up straw)

Here are some of my favorite purchases from past prime days, and a few other items that may end up on the list again (and although not exciting, there always seems to be a screamin' deal on diapers).

This playmat went on sale last year for Prime Day and I snagged it up -  it might go on sale again! We used this forever in our house - it is the Skip Hop Geo Grey-Cream Playspot Foam Floor Tile Playmat.

This is by far my most used appliance- the Instant Pot. You can make an entire chicken in 20 minutes! Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Marker and Warmer all in one - and it's easy to use.

We own multiple of these white noise machines. Sloan has been using it for almost 2 years and it still works perfectly! It mimics the sound of a fan really well and blocks out almost all noises. 


Hello!  It has probably been 41 weeks since I last posted!  Crazy to think it's been that long... If you follow along on social media, you may know that we are expecting any moment now.  Our baby is almost officially a full week late.  I thought it would be a great time to share a couple of pics of the nursery since I'm on Maternity Leave (without baby yet) and I actually have a moment to get a post up!

Below is right when you walk into the nursery.  The camel art is one of the first pieces that we purchased and where a lot of the inspiration came from in the room.  The piece is very playful with lots of bright colors- I thought it would be perfect for a nursery.  I was going to reupholster the glider but it was going to be really expensive to get it to the upholster, fabric, etc. so decided to keep it as is. I might throw a thick navy grosgrain ribbon on the bottom of the slipcover...still undecided!

The changing table (vintage dresser) is directly across from this wall: 

Last wall is where the crib resides: 

I want to take a few more detail shots and post on sources later, but one item that is very special to this quilt made by our very talented friend, Misha.  Such a gorgeous blanket!

Also a close up of the flamingo mobile.  Isn't it fun? 

Hoping to be back soon to add sources, some of the organization, etc. but also hoping not to be back and busy with baby!
