While we just finally shared the news about our second baby, I’ve been planning our nursery for a while. After having Bodhi and putting together his nursery, I have a very clear understanding of what is needed to function smoothly with a newborn. Organization and simplicity are key. And a soothing, warm and cozy space is helpful. While I still LOVE grey as a wall color (after all, it’s everywhere in our home), I am leaning towards a warmer neutral for Baby #2′s nursery.
We received this adorable handmade Short Horn stuffed animal from WE’VE Built. I think it perfectly captures the colors and textures I want to incorporate into our nursery. Think very organic and soft. If it’s a boy, we will likely skip the pink, but the general soft look and feel with natural textures is exactly what we’re going for. And I love decorating the nursery with just a few statement pieces. (more…)
Hi, it’s Tiffany stopping by with a merry and bright kids holiday party inspiration board. Currently I save my party planning budget for birthday parties, but I have to say these last few years the Christmas season in particular, has tempted me to forget that self-imposed limitation. With all the inspiration out there, I’d love to throw a Christmas themed kid friendly party. (more…)
Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments, well wishes and congratulations yesterday. We are feeling so blessed. I wanted to stop in today and share how we told our family we were expecting our second baby. (more…)
Hello lovely friends! I am so excited to finally share some personal news. We are expecting our second child in early June. (more…)

I love shopping on Black Friday and spent yesterday with my grandma. She is the best shopping companion. Patient, not irritable, organized and stays on track, exactly the traits I find important in a shopping buddy. I love shopping with her and we make it a tradition each year to grab a coffee and hit the shops. We typically get almost her entire list and at least half of mine done in one day. We both stay positive and cheerful no matter how long the lines are or how many people bump into us, cut in front of us or how tired and hungry we get. (more…)

We love hosting cocktail parties, dinner parties, casual kid-friendly build-your-own pizza dinners and more. There is nothing better (or easier) than a Saturday night with friends at someone’s home. The kids can run around, make noise, make messes and the adults can talk, eat and enjoy each other’s company. It’s the best.
But, I also love a good adults-only night. I put together this very simple table setting for the holidays. I envision doing something like this with just one other couple and no kids. How often do we get good quality time with our close friends? Not often enough. I like the idea of making time with friends special, but not too fussy. (more…)
I have been sick a lot lately and it makes everyday stuff like work, laundry, cooking, cleaning, playing with my sweet boy and everything just a bit harder. Tonight, my sweet husband is cleaning the kitchen and watching our son so I can finish some work for tomorrow. I spent all afternoon at Urgent Care getting diagnosed with an ear infection. I haven’t had one since I was a young child.
Being under the weather and being a mom while feeling ill is a good reminder of a lot of things, not all of them positive. Tonight it’s a reminder to slow down a bit. And tonight it’s a reminder to be thankful. (more…)

I have been sick so much since B started preschool and I know it’s only going to get worse as we head into the cough, cold and flu season. As a busy mom, since I can’t just lay in bed all day like I could before B came along, I focus on as many comfort measures for myself and my family as possible.
It starts with Kleenex. B’s skin is so sensitive, especially in the winter. If you use anything but Kleenex to wipe his nose, he has dry skin in one day. Kleenex tissues are the softest and are our go-to for the sick season.
I also love to incorporate tradition into sick days because I want B to remember sick days as a happy time when mom (and sometimes dad) took care of him, gave him comfort items and cuddled up on the couch. And I want his comfort items to be healthy ones. Here are a few ways I make sick days better. (more…)
I know it’s still “before Thanksgiving” and many people don’t like to talk about winter holidays until after Thursday, but I am definitely in the holiday spirit. Our tree is up and is so lovely in the evenings. I am shopping for holiday gifts for all and I am gathering all of the details and essentials for our fifth very merry cocktail party which is coming up on Dec. 14. I’m working with two really fun brands on this party which makes it a little extra special.
I thought I’d share a little planning board above and a few fun things. It’s nowhere near complete, but includes a several elements we are incorporating into our party. I’m most excited for our annual Bubbly Bar which features sparkling wine and some fun additions each year. I have some special things going on this year. And we are having a little gourmet candy party favor station which will feature these seriously fancy lollipops and other white treats. (more…)

I love my new Ariat York boots. This style is the perfect classic riding boot. You can wear these boots almost anywhere. You can dress them up or down. Today I’m sharing a look I LOVE for fall and winter for busy moms or anyone really. It’s all about layering and the boots make even the most casual elements chic.
Ariat York boots + black skinny jeans + buffalo check shirt + neutral sweater + black puffy vest + cozy infinity scarf + crossbody bag + blingy bracelet + neutral beanie=PERFECTION. (more…)
