• Boho Mermaid Bedroom Reveal & ORC Week 6

    For the last six weeks I have been working on putting together a boho mermaid bedroom for my daughter Arianna. I am so excited to share the big reveal of the room with you! I feel like this room is so unique because it combines both Bohemian and Mermaid/nautical themes together. This room transformation came together very smoothly and I am so happy with the way it turned out! My design plans for the room took a twist into a new direction when I fell in love with a boho style Rug. I thought that it would be fitting to change the name of the room design since it took a spin in…

  • Boho Curtain Tie backs & ORC week 5

    There is just one week left of this awesome One Room Challenge! I have loved seeing all of the different spaces come together each week! I can not wait for next week to see all of the rooms completed! I have another project to share with you this week and that is my Boho Curtain Tie backs, but first I want to share a few different room decor items! I have been having so much fun shopping for this room! There are so many adorable Mermaid items out in the stores right now, so it is a perfect time to buy decor! I do have to remind myself to but things that…

  • DIY Capiz Chandelier – ORC Week 4

    Welcome back! There are just two week left of this One Room Challenge can you believe it! I have been so busy that these weeks have been flying by. I will be cutting it a little close with getting things finished up, but fingers crossed that we get it all completed in time! I have been working on finding a light fixture for my Under the Sea Mermaid room. The light fixture that was already in the room was one of those “Boob Lights“, you know the ones I am talking about! I really love the look of the Capiz Chandeliers to go with my room. I think that they…

  • Under the Sea Mermaid Bedroom Paint Colors & ORC Week 3

    Hi Everyone! You may have noticed that there is no week two post for the One Room Challenge. I had the best intentions to post for week two and well I was so Easter focused that the week passed me by. Things are back on track now!  I did spend my time wisely this week by doing lots of shopping for Arianna’s room. I found some really great decor items for her room, but you are going to have to wait to see them because that is not this weeks topic. This week’s topic is all about paint! This is what Arianna’s room looked like when we bought our house. One wall was…

  • Under the Sea Table Makeover

    The planning and designing for my daughters room is finally underway. The theme for her room is going to be a mermaid, under the sea theme. She loves mermaids and is so excited to get her room all put together. When Deco Art approached me about trying out their Metallics line of paint I knew it was going to be just what I needed to get started on her room! You can now find the Metallics line of Deco Art paint at your nearest Hobby Lobby! Yet another reason to shop at Hobby Lobby! After looking through the different shades of metallic paint I decided on Pearl. I had a hard…

  • The Ultimate Guide of Toddler Must Haves

    Toddler hood can be rough and exhausting. I should know, I have one child leaving toddler hood and entering the preschool age and one child that is full-on toddler. I don’t know about you but my son seems to get into a whole lot more mischief then my daughter did! Often times it seems that we spend half of our days getting our toddlers out of things they are not suppose to be in or off of things they are not suppose to be on, or taking away things they are not suppose to be playing with. Toddler hood is a whole different world then Baby hood. So many things change, including the essential things for your child. I have…

  • 14 Fun Valentines books for Toddlers

    I love kids books and always enjoy finding new holiday themed books. I always stop at the seasonal kids book display in the store and look over each book. I do this of course, when I am not shopping with the kids, because they would give me about 30 seconds before declaring that they wanted to move on in the store. Luckily all of our thrift stores in the area put the kids books right next to the toys, so I can easily browse there while the kids search through the toys. Each season I rotate the books out with books for the new season. By rotating the books it feels like…

  • Peter Pan 1st Birthday

    We had a beautiful warm sunny day celebrating Ryder’s first birthday. Our family came up to our house and to stay for a long weekend. We had a lot of fun spending time together and celebrating Ryder turning one. Here is Ryder’s Peter Pan 1sts birthday.     To set the tone and let guest know the theme of the party I sent out these adorable postcards by White Rabbit Press on Etsy. She has several other adorable prints so you should go check out her shop. Tay was really great to work with.   Guests were welcomed at the door with a framed Peter Pan silhouette and a sign letting them know that…

  • 10 Gift Ideas For 1 Year Olds

    (This post contains affiliate links) We had a great time celebrating Ryder’s first birthday with our family. The birthday boy partied hard all day with no nap and finally crashed just before dinner. First Birthday’s are always exciting. It is great to have all your family come together and celebrate your little one. They are moving from baby to toddler and most are doing it as quickly as they can walk. Buying a one year old a gift that they are going to love and play with again and again can be challenging, Especially if they have older siblings that might already have “everything”.  I like to buy gifts that children can…

  • Peter Pan Birthday Party Preperation

      This little guy will be turning one in just a few short days. His first year went by quickly it seems. It felt as if it went by faster then his sisters, maybe it is because he did everything earlier then she did. He rolled over, walked, and got teeth earlier then Arianna. He is becoming less and less of a baby each day and more of a toddler.      Our family spent most of the weekend getting things ready for his Peter Pan themed party next weekend. Nothing can make you clean a house like having company over!     Ryder helped sweep the patio and the deck.  …
