<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/11484691/?claim=zh235bm3n7x”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> I found this post on Pinterest and I thought about how great it would be to start a new family tradition this year. Basically you start with an empty jar on January 1st and throughout the year you write down memorable moments on little pieces of paper.  On December 31st you sit and go through all of the different memories that were documented throughout the year via this little jar. Here is my take… Read more »

If you’re pregnant and still planning to put on a party dress for New Year’s Eve here are some ideas from ASOS Maternity that I love!  There are tons of dresses on their website so definitely check it out!

I am always looking for new craft ideas and the holidays give me an excuse to experiment!  I usually start out by wandering around Michael’s and I know I am in trouble when I grab a wagon instead of a basket to shop! This is what I came home with after my shopping trip…   So I started making some of my usual labels…   I was a little bored until I came across this great post on one of… Read more »

If you’re looking for something pretty to give someone special I recommend these Voluspa candles… A candle that looks this chic on the outside and smells amazing is a no brainer! I purchased a couple of them from Nordstrom.  There are plenty of different scents and colors to choose from.  My mom is having her bathroom redone so I decided to get her one of these, some soaps, and monogrammed towels.  Happy gift giving!

Registering for a baby shower is exciting and a little overwhelming at the same time.  A friend gave me this book and it was really useful when it came to deciding on items that we needed for our registry. We read through it and marked off the items that we decided on before going to the store.  The reviews are useful and really great for first time parents that have no clue what they’re doing!

I knew when we bought this house that I wanted gray siding with a pretty blue front door.  It was easy to pick out the siding and the front door. The tricky part was finding the perfect shade of blue!  Here is what I was looking for – something that stands out enough to make a statement but not the kind of blue that looks like it belongs on a door in the Caribbean. Does that make sense? Okay good…. Read more »

It’s a boy!!!! We can’t wait to meet this little man in March! This was such a great day and it was really cool to celebrate it with our families.  Here are some details from our little celebration! The bow at the top was so that we wouldn’t have to use scissors when we wanted to open the box.  I felt like the scissors might ruin the photos and the bow was a nice touch! Another thing to consider if… Read more »

I’m just going to start by saying…better late than never! Can’t believe I wrote my first Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint post almost two months ago and I am just getting around to posting part II now! Part II is all about the wax!  I mentioned in my first post that I am pregnant so my husband took care of this part for me.  All of the materials that were used in this post can be found at Suite Pieces in… Read more »
