EASTER BASKET EDIT | BOYS & GIRLS

Can you believe Easter is almost here? I’m finding that the kids are getting tougher and tougher to find cute things for their Easter Basket as they’re getting older but I did manage to find a bit for both to make this year’s Easter just as great as years before… I’m trying to hang on to these holidays because I’m sure my years of playing Easter bunny and Santa are numbered. 
I typically select a theme and run with it,…

SHADES OF GREEN

I’ve found myself reaching for greens this spring and today only further inspired my shopping habits. In honor of St. Patty’s day and the newest green trends I’ve been seeing, I rounded up some of my favorite shades of green. 
I’ll keep this post short and sweet so without further ado…

MARCH EDIT

MARCH EDIT

Can y’all believe it’s March? I can’t… this month is going to be a great month for our family. We get to celebrate an intimate family wedding, right here on Coronado, and many more exciting things to come this month!

I’ve seen a few trends I’m really into this…

MEET MILLIE | BRINGING HOME PUPPY

I’m so excited to introduce y’all to our newest family member… Millie Mays! If you follow me on Instagram, you know we picked her up in Utah almost a month ago but I thought she needed a formal introduction on the blog and I wanted to share all the puppy must haves that we’ve been using and loving!
Millie is an F1B Sheepadoodle. She is 75% poodle and 25% Old English Sheepdog which makes her very hypoallergenic and a minimal…

BEDROOM REVEAL

Y’all, this bedroom has been a labor of slllloooowwww pandemic love and I am finally ready to share all the sources and details! I wouldn’t say it’s totally complete, I’m still searching for the perfect rug to go all the way under the bed and still on the hunt for hat hooks to hang my hats on but for the most part, she is all finished! Oh and I’m still waiting on our hardware for the dressers but those…

GETTING IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

Surely I can’t be alone in this but I am having the hardest time getting in to the holiday spirit this year… usually by December 1st our home looks like the north pole but I have yet to set up one single decoration. If I had to guess, it’s likely due to the pandemic blues, the distance learning schedule, and a few other personal things going on.
All of this has me feeling rather Grinch like so today I decided…
