New Year, New Decor

I don't know about y'all, but once January hits I feel the need to change something up! Whether it be my hairstyle, my diet, my work out routine, or a room in our house.

Now I have changed up my work out routine (well more like started one because Lord knows I haven't worked out since before the kids), but that's for another post.

Today's post is about sprucing up a room in our house. We have 2 bathrooms upstairs that don't really get used, but have DESPERATELY needed a make over and since I'm a sucker for a rustic, farmhouse look, that's what I stuck with for one of the upstairs bathrooms.

We've been in our house for 2 years and I am slowly working my way through it and putting my touch of farmhouse flare to it. And I have to say, it's turning out exactly like I had hoped. All items are linked below!

Pregnancy Fashion

I won't lie. I miss my preggo belly. I'm one of those weird ones that LOVES being pregnant! Except maybe the last month, I love it, and am sad that we only plan to do it 1 more time, but goodness am I excited to not have to the newborn phase again after this last one. Hallelujah, praise the Lord!

Even though I don't have my preggo belly right now, I can still count on my sister to be my model so I can still touch on maternity fashion even when I'm not and boy did she rock this. This plaid blouse was perfect for fall and winter.

 Of course Pinkblush is my go to for maternity clothes hands down! They have the cutest and most fashion forward options around and I was thrilled to work with them again!
 What I also love about Pinkblush is that the pieces transition from maternity to postpartum. This sweatshirt will be perfect for right after he's born. Flowy and forgiving!

 Even though her baby bump is tiny now, this dress is going to fit her now through the end of the pregnancy and will be perfect for her maternity session photos. Love me some stretch!

Can't wait to hold that sweet nephew of mine!! May can't get here soon enough!

Marshmallow Madness

This summer we went on vacation to the river and the kids got to experience roasting marshmallows. Their minds were blown and have been begging me to do it again. So when we got our fire pit from Wayfair, we had to break it in with some good ole s'mores.

S'mores are so stinking messy, but the kids loves them. So I put my OCD aside and let them at it! Besides, they are so stinking good. What's a little chocolate and marshmallow all over your face?
Rae is always my one to dive head first and try anything! She was so excited. She kept sneaking pieces of chocolate.

Hudson takes time to warm up. Needs Daddy within arms reach.

After getting the kids their s'mores Kyle had to grab one for himself too.
We can't forget the littlest. He got the fire started!
Just kidding! ;)

Summer Time Snacks

I can't believe that summer is here and oh boy this heat! I love the laid back feel and the days on end at the pool. The sun doesn't set until 9pm and it just feels so much more relaxed. Vacations are so much fun to take and celebrating 4th of July is coming up and my kids can't wait for our neighborhood parade and festival. It's definitely the highlight of the summer. I always love to make some festive snacks for the occasion and I love these easy fruit kabobs! Not only are they easy, but delicious and healthy! The kids loves helping make them too.

As you can tell Raegan loved helping. Hudson was more about inhaling all of the fruit before we could make any of the kabobs. No joke, we started out with a whole container of raspberries and we ended up with enough to make 3 kabobs. This kid and his love for fruit. So I may have planned to make a bunch and take really pretty pictures, but alas, life happened and my toddler ate all the fruit. So 3 kabobs is it!

Now if you want to include a yummy (but not as healthy) fruit dip, here is my favorite! I received it from a dear friend's mom at my wedding shower and I make it all the time!

Mama Stratton's Fruit Dip

8 oz cream cheese
4 oz sour cream
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar 
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp vanilla

Mix it all up in a mixer and dip fruit in it! So easy and so yummy!

What do you have planned for the holidays?
