I always loved having a Christmas tree in my room as a kid. There’s just something about falling asleep to the glow of a Christmas tree. So, I knew I wanted to put one up in CB’s room this year! Even though she doesn’t sleep in her nursery, ha! But we’re working on it and she’s started napping in there at least. And, of course for my girl’s nursery Christmas decor I just had to go with a pink and red theme with a nod to Santa’s reindeer and toys!
So I have to admit, this is probably one of my more genius ideas. And I’m just so glad it worked! I love, I mean really love a good wood framed sign. Every good farmhouse has one and they make me feel like I’m channeling my inner Joanna Gaines. My main problem with them? Well maybe it’s no so much my problem with the sign as it is my own problem, but I don’t like that you can’t change them up with out replacing the sign entirely and well they typically run around $50. Not overly expensive but not super cheap either. Luckily in my stroke of genius I figured out a way to change up all of our wood framed signs and the best part is it’ll cost you about $5 (maybe even a little less)!
Is anyone else in denial that it’s already time to start buying Christmas gifts?! No, just me? And of course buying gifts leads to wrapping gifts. But I have a gift to you today that doesn’t require wrapping but will help you with wrapping your own presents. Some adorable buffalo check Christmas gift tags! See how to access them in the Free Printables Library at the end of the post!
I’m still a little bit in denial that my baby girl has turned a year old! The weekend before Thanksgiving we had her first birthday party at my parent’s house! My mom is amazing at throwing parties and should seriously be a party planner. I’m so thankful she and my sister helped out! We threw CB a super cute pink and gold birthday party for her first birthday! We threw in some flowers because I’m a sucker for florals! And a few pumpkins to make it a little more fall. I couldn’t be happier with how gorgeous her party turned out!
This past year has been a hard one. And I hate to write these words out but I’ve felt so far from the Lord. A part of me has been frustrated with Him because of deployment, and and even after my husband’s return his job still keeps him away more days than not. Becoming a mom has a learning curve and I was at point of just surviving. No thriving was happening on my part. I was having a hard time getting in the Word myself let alone including Jesus in my baby’s routine.
As we’re moving away from Halloween the most wonderful time of the year is upon us! I know we still have to get to Thanksgiving but my personal motto is it’s never to early to start thinking about Christmas! This of course coming from the girl who listens to Christmas music starting in August! And what better place to find gifts than Amazon? Turns out Amazon some amazing farmhouse Christmas decor as well and I’ve rounded up some of the best for you!
When I was pregnant I put a baby carrier on my on my registry but I didn’t put much thought into whether I’d be a baby wearing mama or not. I figured it might be an easier way to tote her around in public but never really considered that I might wear her at home. Baby wearing is sort of a trendy thing to do, and so I think most mama-to-be’s add them to their list just as I did.
I have to admit I have a love affair. With wreaths. Boxwood, Magnolia, Eucalyptus. I’ll take one of each please! I don’t actually have all of them in my home but that’s mostly because for a normal size you’re looking at spending $40 or more (usually more). Even the smaller sizes are around $20. But when I came across these olive branches on sale I couldn’t pass them up for an easy DIY olive branch wreath! And good news it cost me less than a premade one!
My husband and I recently celebrated 10 years together. 5 years dating, 2 years engaged, 3 years married. I can’t believe the two 16-year-olds we once were, now have a house, a daughter, and a dog. And it feels as though it happened in the blink of an eye! And even though 10 years is quite the accomplishment, there honestly wasn’t much celebration had because life got in the way. Life seems to do that a lot for a military family like us. But you don’t need much for a thriving relationship, nothing fancy just love… and flowers.
