    Playroom Final Reveal

    Did you hear that?  That’s the sound of me letting out a big sigh that I can check this room off my list!  My original plan was to tackle this room right after the boys bedroom last summer – but truth be told I was pretty burned out and decided to change gears to the living room instead…..and it was actually a blessing in disguise!  My goal was to make this room a place where the boys could feel free to make it their own, but still make sure it fit in with the rest of the house because it’s right off the loft – not tucked into a basement…

    Happy 3rd Birthday GOB!

    Just last week I took GOB to his gymnastics and was sitting in the lobby working while he was in class.  A few minutes into class the woman in front of me asked “Who’s little boy is the one in the gray shirt?”  I knew she was talking about GOB and I honestly thought “Oh please tell me he still has his pants on”…..as I stood up to look the woman said “He is the happiest little guy!  He has had the biggest smile on his face since they started class!”   Those are the moments that make me feel so lucky to be his mom!Although we’ve definitely started to feel…

    Big Boy Bedroom – The Final Reveal!

    No more #SundaySneakPeak’s for this one – officially moving the boys room to the done pile!  I was on a tight deadline to get this room done before Blake’s bday week, and I finished right on time.  I decided just to share a blog of this room all at once instead of breaking it down, so check out the included links if you want to see the step-by-steps for all the projects or feel free to shoot me a msg and I’d be happy to share my method! I pushed myself building-wise with this one and am actually very proud because I think I was able to bring my skill…

    Look Who’s 2

    I think most people say “I can’t believe it’s already been x years” when their little one turns a year older, but for Jon and I we can’t believe that it’s ONLY been two years because it feels like our little GOB has been with us for much longer!!!  But it’s true – today my little man turns 2 years old. I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful little brother for Blake.   When you’re having a super stressed out day, 5 minutes of snuggle time with GOB can put happiness back into your soul and make you feel like there’s someone out there who just wants to make you…

    GOB’s Big Top Birthday

    The rain kinda washed out our plans of setting up a fun, sunny circus in our backyard….but Grayson’s first birthday still turned out being a lot of fun.  I cooked up a big batch of chili to keep everyone nice and warm and we moved the carnival games to the garage.  I didn’t capture as many pics of the day as I would have liked to but here’s a few of our Big Top touches, and of the cutest ring master to take the stage! Was really happy with the invites I whipped up for this one and for the teal/red color scheme All of those empty boxes that had…

    Happy 1st Birthday Grayson!!!

    A few days late, but wanted to make sure that I give my littlest man his very own Happy Birthday post. If you’ve never met this little man, please believe me when I say that he is the happiest baby ever! It’s hard to find a picture where he does not have a huge smile from ear to ear because his natural response to every situation is to be happy. I’ve gotten to spend almost every day of the last year with this little guy and he can make the sun shine on even the cloudiest day. I am incredibly lucky to have this teeny beany in my life and…

    A boy named G.O.B

    For anybody wondering, yes, we did make those his initials on purpose.  We were going to name him Oscar, but I was afraid kids would call him Oscar the Grouch or Oscar Meyer, so we changed that to his middle name and went with naming him after a failed “illusionist” instead.  But who could resist this face?? Even though he’s been here for 4 months already, I wanted to give a proper spotlight to our cuddle bug Grayson.  I can’t say enough times how wonderful he is!!  He is the sweetest, smiliest little boy I’ve ever known and I just want to cuddle him all day long.  To see his…
