The big girls room is probably my favorite in our home, kids rooms are always the most fun for me to decorate and it also was the shape + charm of this room that sold me on our house when we walked into it three years ago!  It reminds of a dollhouse, with really high sloped ceilings + stairs to walk into it, it also is by far the biggest bedroom of our home since it is the room over the garage.  The perfect space for two sisters to share!

First, a little background on this room.  It was the only space in our house without hardwoods when we bought it, so we had them put in to match the other floors in the house which were being refinished at the same time. There were built-in shelves along the side of the wall of the room, which I LOVED for the charm they brought, but we ended up pulling them out + replacing them because of the quality.  We went with the same drawers we got in our kitchen, white shaker, and had someone install them to fit along the wall.  This is one of my favorite parts of their room, the drawer space is theeeee best, especially with two little girls!  I also love their little school desks, we found them at a garage sale years ago + refinished them, I now need to find one for Remerie’s room because they love to sit in these and color/do school work so much.

For December, I added some festive sheets to their beds, fun reindeer pillows, lights, + a couple little houses along with a little pink tree that no longer has any ornaments left on it because Remie Rue has pulled them down 468 times. 😉  Also we love their big tree we got a few years back and the cutest festive sign from Opal + Olive, our go-to for signs in the girls rooms throughout the year.  I have linked everything still available at the bottom of this post and plan to share some more photos of their built-in shelving and other spaces in their room in the new year, I am still on the hunt for a second rug to put under their beds + the perfect curtains!

I cannot even wrap my head around the fact that we are less than two weeks before Christmas, this holiday season has FLOWN by + I am so not ready for it to be over.  Both Avalon + Remerie have been battling being sick, so we have been fitting in as much festive fun as we can while also trying to keep it easy for them, it has been sad to see them not feeling well but hoping that means we will get through it and all be healthy for the big day!

Sharing some photos from our trip to the Christmas tree farm today, one of my favorite traditions of the year!!  We took a couple years off from a real tree but now are back + it really is so worth the thousands of pine needles that you will find on the floor, you cannot fake that smell! 🙂  The girls honestly could care less about the tree we pick but they love running around endlessly, Waverly and Avalon played hide + seek and Remerie picked up rocks, all while I took photos.  Their little muddy boots by the end of the trip are my favorite part!

Last year’s trip can be found here + the year before (when Remie was a tiniest little seed in my belly!) can be found here!  Hope you are having the most merry December ever!!!!! XO

Happy December, we hope you had the most wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones!  Before I go all out festive from here until Christmas, I wanted to share some pictures from our holiday weekend, it was such a good one.  I know I have said this before, but Thanksgiving Eve is always one of my favorite days of the year.  The excitement + anticipation for the holidays ahead is just the best and this year was extra special because Avalon had the cutest performance at preschool that day.  She was so proud singing her turkey songs, preschool performances will forever be some of my most cherished memories from this stage of life!

Thanksgiving day, we had our usual turkey cinnamon rolls + the Macy’s Day parade.  The girls also colored thankful placemats and made tee-pees, even Remerie got to join in on this and LOVED IT!!!  Waverly’s favorite part was coloring + writing what she was thankful for, and Avalon loved making the tee-pees and eating the sweets (so true to both of them).  We got to have dinner with my family, including my brother + sister-in-law from Colorado, but sadly had to miss dessert with my husband’s side of the family since our nephew wasn’t feeling well.  Looking forward to lots more family time over the holidays, bring on the most WONDERFUL time of the year!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love to you + yours! XO

I hope you had the best Thanksgiving holiday and are officially ready for shopping season!!!  I honestly get a little bit overwhelmed with all the sales this time of year, but have narrowed down some favorites, a few things I plan to get for my girls to stash away for the holiday + a few things for the home.  Enjoy!

Serena + Lily – One of my favorite stores is currently running their thank you event, which is their biggest sale of the year, everything is currently 25% off!  My all-time favorite stools (pictured above, I have both in my big girls room + in our living room) are part of the sale as well as the chair I have been drooling over FOR YEARS!  We have the knock-off version and it is one of my most beloved pieces in the house, I could think of a reason to put it in every single room.

Gap – I just got the girls new jammies from there for so cheap + I love them so much, especially that they have them in every size so I could get matching for all three.  I also love these for boys and this llama set.

Anthropologie – 30% off everything from my all-time favorite store!!!!!!  I could seriously buy it all, but am linking some favorites we already have, including the quilt we have for both the master + the big girls beds (found here).  I am obsessed with our stockings from there, these ornaments that can be used for decorating anywhere, and our runner in the kitchen (a definite splurge but so freaking worth it!).  I also am picking up my go-to bowls in holiday colors and the sweetest stocking ever for Remie’s room.

Maisonette – So many sweet gifts for your babes from here + so many of them currently on sale!  I love this neutral bike for a little boy or girl and looooove this wooden doll bed, would love to get for one of my girls!  I plan to pick up this baking utensil kit, the girls will be getting a new kitchen this year and these will be adorable to go with it.

Crate + Kids – Another one of my favorite shops for kids, currently 20% off sitewide.  I am getting this doll furniture for the girls dollhouse + love this unicorn ride-on toy for Remie’s age (we have one for the older girl’s and they still love it!).  Some favorites we already have from there include this easel we got a few Christmas’s back + the sheets sets we have on all three girls beds.

And lastly, a present for mama, our Robot died a few months back + it was the saddest thing ever.  I LIVE FOR THAT THING and have been desperate for another one ever since.  This one is $100 off for Black Friday + for the most part has great reviews, cannot wait to have another one again.  Happy shopping friends, and happy weekend! XO

We are right upon the season for giving, fa-la-laaaaaa!!!!  This time of year is just the best for so many reasons, and for me, one of those is being able to search + find special gifts for each of my girls and seeing their faces light up when they open them.  But I am also the first to admit that I have struggled with finding the right balance when it comes to gifts.  I really want our kids to see the beauty in Christmas for reasons way beyond presents, including our traditions and family time, and have found that it’s hard to do that when they have so much “stuff”.  I also want them to value + appreciate the gifts they do get, and truly believe that it is so much easier to do that when they have less.  

I was especially feeling this way at the end of last year’s holiday season and vowed to have a better plan heading into Christmas 2019.  So when Kippsy contacted me about a month back I was SO EXCITED to work with them on this, I so strongly believe in their mission + love it so much!  Kippsy is a modern children’s gift registry that believes in providing kids with experiences, such as funds towards trips to the museum or dance classes.  Through their site, parents can also link items kids really need, such as books or school supplies, and there is even an opportunity to collect donations instead of gifts at all.  We are so excited to use this with our families for the girls during the holidays, and I love the idea to incorporate it year-round, for birthdays or other special events during the year.

We got the cutest little box from Kippsy, it had greeting cards that guests could use (straight from their website!) to bring to the party if they would like to.

To set up your own registry, head to the Kippsy site.  You can use the promo code F-6237 to create your registry and will recieve $15 after you accumulate $150 towards cash funds (through experience based gifts or charity donations!).  Enjoy! XO
