Winter Baby Clothes


Texas is finally cooling off and I for one am so stinking happy about it! No more sweating as soon as you walk outside. Layers are my favorite and I'm ready for it!


Along with starting to dress differently for myself comes dressing my kids differently too. Can't just throw a short sleeve onesie on and be good for the day anymore.


I started searching for what I could start dressing Hudson in that wouldn't take forever to put on, was cute, warm, and didn't break the bank.

Then I found Finn and Emma. See Hudson is just as excited!

Garment snaps are lead/nickel free and feature real coconut inserts. Their garments have a generous fit—allowing them to be worn for longer—and accommodate cloth as well as disposable diapers.

They carry boys and girls outfits that are made with buttery soft, G.O.T.S. certified organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. As well as muslin blankets in bright beautiful colors, wooden play gyms and corresponding play mats.
Can't wait to add more to his wardrobe. They will be on rotation a lot!
Thank you to Finn and Emma for sponsoring this post.

Powder Bath

Happy Thanksgiving friends!

We are about 5-6 weeks out from moving into our newly renovated home! I've been sparing with the pictures I've shared of the reno because I want it to be a huge surprise once it's all done and decorated, but I wanted to share our powder bath because I'm so stinking excited about it.

I found this picture on Pinterest and knew it was exactly what we needed for our house. So I began my hunt.
Wayfair is always my starting point for searching for house items. They have everything and at a great price. You can't beat that!

Here's what the powder bath looks like right now. It has so much potential and I love that I get to design it from the ground up. I get to do the same with our master bath, but that's for another post.
I literally found EVERY part of this bathroom at Wayfair and I can't wait to put it all together. Now we do plan to install wood shiplap, but I still linked some shiplap wallpaper you can put up if you don't want to spend the time to install real wood shiplap.
Vessel Sink Ceramic Rectangular Vessel Bathroom Sink
I love the simplicity of this sink. The rounded edges make it soft and the size is just perfect to sit on top of a vanity. Now the vanity I chose already has a sink, but if you had an old dresser, you could redo it and add a vessel sink.
Ceramic Tile Medina 8" x 8" Cement Tile in Black and White
I fell in love with this tile long ago and I'm still in love with it now. It has just enough "busyness" to give the powder bath that "it" factor. It's simple and not too over the top. Perfection!
Vanity Toby 37" Single Bathroom Vanity Set with Integrated Sink
The reclaimed wood is to die for! If you are looking for a farmhouse vanity this is the one! Easy to set a sink on top of and still have space below for some baskets to hold all your powder bath needs!
Faucet Purist Widespread Bathroom Sink Faucet Gold is definitely still in and this piece proves it! Don't shy away from mixing finishes. Bronze and gold look great together and it allows the powder bath to not be too heavy. The sleekness of this faucet is beautiful as well. Mirror Kenitra Arch Wall Mirror
I love the scalloped top of this mirror. It allows you bring in a fun shape, but not take away from the rest of the powder bath.
Wallpaper White Washed Boards Ship-lap 2' x 20.5" Wood Wallpaper
Who doesn't love ship lap? Now you can have ship lap without the time! These amazing wallpaper planks are easy to install and brighten up any room. What a great DIY project!
Sconce Concord Double Handle Wall Mount Sink Faucet
I love the exposed glass shades on these wall sconces. The Edison bulbs give it that old, rustic feel that everyone is looking for in their farmhouse decor and the bronze color goes along with the rustic wood of the vanity and mixes well with the gold faucet and mirror. Also, the price can't be beat!
Ladder 4 ft Barn Wood Reclaimed Decorative Ladder
Just take off the last few legs of this ladder, and voila! Place it over the toilet, and you have yourself some fun, different shelves for your powder bath. It allows you to use the space you have in a small powder bath. Have I mentioned Wayfair's prices?! Amazing! This better be in your cart when you're done reading this!
Basket Storage Basket
These baskets are perfect for the farmhouse powder bath. They come in multiple sizes and different colors! They could easily be used in a playroom too. They won't get dirty and are sturdy. That's a plus in this mama's of toddlers book.

Black Friday 411

Ever since having kids having the chance to go out and Christmas shop has become... well... impossible. Online shopping has become my new best friend.

I know some people LOVE the hype of waiting in lines for Black Friday.

And I'm over here like "I'm good sitting here on my computer enjoying Black Friday and Cyber Monday from the comfort of my couch."

Know what I'm saying?

So here's my top 3 round up of the Black Friday sales that I will be partaking in. And the great thing is that most of them have already started. Time to get a jump start on shopping!

First up, Old Navy. It is my go to for buying clothes for pretty much the whole family for Christmas. Right now all pajamas are 50% off and the whole store is 40% off. I can't even imagine what the Black Friday sale will be when the prices are already so great!

 Next up is Nordstrom. I love hitting up their Black Friday Sale for jewelry. Especially Kendra Scott. During last year's sale I scored jewelry for $25-30. Such a good deal! Right now they have already started their sale with some items up to 40% off. Can't wait to see the rest of the deals.

And last up is Amazon. I bought most of my presents for my family here last year. From toys for Raegan to workout clothes for my dad. They had it all! And let's be real. Amazon's prices are always amazing, but the Black Friday deals are going to be sweet.
On top of scoring amazing deals I also learned about an amazing way to save even more money while online shopping.

Ebates. It's seriously the coolest thing since sliced bread.

You shop at your favorite online stores, earn cash back for your purchases, and receive a big fat check straight to your Paypal account.

In one year I've earned over $250 just by using Ebates. Honest!

You just go to ebates.com

Search the store you are looking for and it'll tell you the cash back they are offering at that time. Then click the store.

Once you are on that page, click "shop now" and you are set to go! You can even shop from your smart phone by using the app.
Now at the beginning I kept forgetting to use Ebates when I would shop online, but they have this nifty gadget you can add to your web browser to help remind you.

 So when I open up Old navy's website to go shopping this amazing little button pops up in the top right hand corner to help remind me to use Ebates. And if the website doesn't use Ebates it'll tell you that too.

And if you want to earn cash back while shopping in the stores, just link your cards and voila! Making cash back no matter how you shop.
Also right now as part of Ebates black friday sale (only through today), they are doing double cash back at pretty much all their stores so you can earn more money!

It's seriously the best ever. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Toddler Adventures Part Deux

These little feet go so many places during the day and lately the only shoes she wants to wear are her "pink sooos".


 I'm just amazed at her. Recently I downloaded some fun educational games on the ipad and she is all about them right now. She knows exactly where they are on the screen and knows what folder to find them in. She shocks me with how much she knows! I just love watching her mind grow.


 Not only is her mind growing, but so are those little feet. Are those foot prints not to die for? My favorite part about her moccs are the bottoms. Those sweet footprints that make me want to scoop her up and tell her to stop growing this instant. But with growing comes so many more fun things to learn and see.


Want to snag a pair of these adorable moccs on sale? Head over to Freshly Picked at 10am MST to snag a pair at 25% off. This only happens TWICE a year so you do not want to miss this opportunity!

And let's make this even BETTER!

Couchgating Done Right

Football season is my favorite. The weather is getting cooler and there's just something about getting together with your friends who are just as obsessed with our team as we are.

Kyle and I went to Texas A&M and we love our Aggies. The kind of love that if we are down in the 4th quarter with 2 minutes to go you better not be talking to me love.

This was 10 years ago during our sophomore year of college. Wow has time has flown!
And if our Aggies lose you pretty much can't talk to Kyle for a few hours. I learned that while we were in college. We would walk back to our apartment in silence if we lost. I knew better than to say anything!

Unfortunately now that we've had kids we haven't been able to make it back for a game. I'm hoping Rae will enjoy a game in a few years, but right now, no thank you. So all the games are watched from the comfort of our couch.

Game day has to be perfect. The perfect food, the perfect drinks, the perfect environment to bring home a win. I actually had Kyle sit down with me and help me put together my list of everything we would need to watch our Aggies. He is very particular with his game day needs.
