Keeping Cool And Staying Dry

Lila’s Clip // Lila’s Dress // Rug // Pom Pom Bin // Stuffed Animals // Popsicles

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you one of Lila’s new favorite snacks… popsicles! I found these super natural and super delicious Squeaky Pops that are only 50 calories and perfect for kids. Even the packaging is fun and Lila yells out a big “Yay!” each time the freezer opens. It’s been the perfect afternoon treat for playing in the backyard or playing inside. Plus I am pretty sure I could never eat enough popsicles so I enjoy them with her.

Since it has been raining off and on this week we have playing indoors a lot. These stuffed animals from Mary Meyer have been a favorite of Lila’s lately. They are so soft and so small, making them easy to tote around. I let her pick one to take with us out and about because they are a good size to carry around. I love running them against her cheek and tickling her with them while I’m holding her. She thinks it’s hilarious!

I can’t wait for the rain to stop and for spring to finally be in full effect. I see a lot of water play and beach days in our future! Thanks for reading.

Tea Time for Two

Sunset Side Chairs in White from Apt2B

Hi Everyone!

 

Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite pieces in the whole house! These Sunset Side Chairs in White from Apt2B are so versatile and the design is flawless. They have so many purposes in our home ranging from dining chairs, additional living room seating for guests, and also the perfect tea party chairs.

Lila has these exact chairs in kid size, but she always prefers the adult ones. I think she likes how high off the ground she is and how much additional space her booty gets. So often for playtime I use her kid table and pair it with the bigger adult chairs. Plus all three of her knit doll besties fit in one chair so she doesn’t have to pick just one to have a tea party with.

The chairs from Apt2B are amazing quality which my husband and I will both comment to each other. All in all we absolutely love these chairs and how they are so functional for a variety of reasons while still keeping the modern feel in our living room. I often will chose to sit in these chairs over the couch when getting some work done on my laptop.

What piece of furniture can you not live without? Thanks for reading.

Mornings Like This

Lila’s Romper* // Lila’s Shoes // Lila’s Bunny // My Hat // My Dress

This morning we got dressed expecting to walk outside into sunshine but instead it was sprinkling rain. We got in the car as quick as we could by the time we got to our stop the rain had stopped. It was a lot colder than normal so Lila wanted to be carried. I used my ring sling to keep her close and she loved it!

When we got to our usual coffee shop Lila asked for a coffee cake so of course I said yes. It was so cute watching her eat this brick of cake and she was singing her favorite songs in between taking nibbles. Afterwards we let her explore a little bit, which she loves to do.

I also can’t get over the pink blooms all over the city. There was the biggest tree right by our car where we parked but the whole street was lined them. It was such a pretty sight! I’m happy about the rain because Lila loves to jump in puddles so I think you will be seeing some of that soon…

Thanks for reading!

Twinning In Yellow

Itty Bitty Diaper Bag // Diaper Bag

Hi everyone!

Okay, let’s cut right to the chase and talk about our matching outfits. I was getting ready and put on my new dress from Kingdom and State, when Lila walked in the room and asked for her yellow dress on too! At first I thought it was funny so I put it on and she was so happy we matched! Then she asked for a “same jacket” so I looked in her closet and funny enough she had a jean jacket. She looked so cute all matchy matchy so I said to heck with it and grabbed our matching Jujube bags out of the closet. It was so funny but so cute because it made her so happy to look like mommy. I guess there’s more to this twinning thing than I thought.
When we left the house we went to one of our favorite gelato shops and had a blast. Everyone was so sweet commenting they liked our matching dresses and Lila would smile so big every time. I guess I officially am into “mommy and me” and will start looking for some new coordinating outfits for us. Haahaa.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!

The Spirit Of Spring

Matching Blouse + Dress from Ele Story
Hi Everyone!
Spring is here and what a better way to celebrate than floral everything! My house is covered in fresh flowers because I can’t go to the market without picking out a bundle. What is it about flowers that make you so happy??
To into the spirit of spring we got these matching floral pieces from Ele Story. They have the sweetest dresses for your darlings and matching tops for the mamas. I love this print because it reminds of everything I love about spring! Judy the owner is also one of the sweetest mamas. It’s easy to love a business when the mastermind behind it is a total babe.
We also got Lila’s Easter dress from Ele Story which I can’t wait to show you. I am hiding it from Lila and I can’t wait to see her face when I show it to her. She’s gonna love it!
I get so excited for Easter every year. It’s one of my favorite holidays and it’s even better celebrating with my Lila girl. We have an awesome weekend of festivities planned that I am really looking forward to.
Thanks so much for reading and I can’t wait to share more soon!

Because Bath Time Is Always A Good Idea

Bubble Bath / Conditioner / Shampoo and Body Wash

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my new favorite bath time essentials. I love that magical time of day when I get to turn the water on and pour bubble bath into the tub. The whole room smells amazing and Lila is usually is so happy in the bath that it’s a really positive activity. We recently upgraded our bath accessories and I am very excited to share them with you!

The item I was most excited to get was the bath toy draining bin I loved the design of it and I loved that the base catches all the water that you can easily dump later. It’s a really nice quality bin and fits the toys inside just perfect. It replaced our old toy bin immediately and it’s been a lovely transition.

Lila has been really enjoying the bath toy organizer that sits across the tub. It keeps all the toys organized and it keeps her entertained moving them from the organizer to the bath, and back to the organizer. To my surprise her favorite of the toys are the shark pour cups. She loves to fill them with water and dump it. It’s so sweet and simple to watch. These toys have been keeping her busy in the bath since they are still “new and exciting.” Something about seeing a new toy having fun is just the best feeling for me. Sometimes while she is distracted I will squirt her with a squeeze bath toy and she will giggle uncontrollably. If it were up to me we would have ten baths a day!

I hope everyone has a great week!

Mom Win On Monday

Magnetic Wooden Blocks // Basket // Rug

Hi everyone!

Today is Monday and I always feel like it brings a fresh start to a new week. I like to do the most cleaning I can on Mondays’ so that way the rest of week it’s not too cluttered (hopefully). Our laundry has been piling up to the point where I have been wearing only leggings- and not just because I want to. Lila normally likes to ‘help’ me with the laundry but today she was so distracted playing with her new toys from Rose and Rex.

It’s really hard to get her distracted with toys, she normally wants to do whatever I am doing with me. When I looked over and saw her totally in the zone I knew that was my chance to get some folding and hanging done. First I snapped a few pics, and as you can tell by her expressions I don’t think she noticed. Then I folded and hung up two loads of laundry and came back to find her still playing with these blocks. If that’s not a mom win then I don’t know what its!

I hope everyone has a great week. Thanks for reading!

What’s Pink, Mint, And Cute All Over?

Chair // Wipes Dispenser // Diaper Caddy // Diaper Pail

Hi Everyone!

Today was Jake’s day off for this week so we had a nice morning at home and he even made us all lunch trying a new recipe. While Lila and I were playing in the living room the mail man rang the doorbell and he had all sorts of goodies for us. We opened our first package it was Chelsea the Cat from Cuddle and Kind. Lila squealed with joy she was so excited. She loves all of her knit animals from them so much so she was so excited when she saw a new one. Right way she ran to put it with the others.

Next we got some suppler exciting things from our friends at Ubbi. I can’t wait to show you their new bath line! Everything is perfect and I couldn’t have even dreamed it better. We also got a few new things for Lila’s room like a pretty pink diaper caddy and a darling mint diaper pail. I think they match the tassels in her room perfectly.

We are about to leave and go do some fun things in town. First the park and the farmer’s market later tonight. It’s been raining lately so I am excited for the warm weather we are about to walk out into.
