Flashcards Are Fun

 

123 LEARNING BOOK | ABC FLASH CARDS | KID’S TABLE AND CHAIRS

Hi Everyone!
Everyday for about 20-30 minutes I attempt an educational activity with Lila. Her favorite activity hands down is flashcards. She has a few different sets but I am always looking for something new for her. I found these cute ones from Stuck On You and was sold when I saw that you could personalize them. I customized her name on the cards/card carrier and picked out the pink option. She loves them so much and they are the perfect size to throw in the diaper bag. I will be taking these everywhere from now on.
Since I was already getting the flashcards I also added to my cart a learning book. I thought it would be a good thing to have to take a restaurant or have saved for a rainy day. The book is super cute and it has already gotten a lot of love from Lila. Stuck On You also has other activities, personalized books, bags, lunch boxes, drink bottles, stationery, bag tags and tons of other options.
I hope you enjoyed my latest find!
Warmly,
Celeste Wright

Lila’s Montessori Floor Bed / House Bed

 

Housebed from: Sweet Home From Wood

Mattress + Sheets + Drapes from: Tomorrow

Lila’s Tutu from: Plum NYC

Hi Everyone!

A few weeks ago I shared with you that we decided to add a bed to Lila’s room and it has been working out great. She absolutely loves her bed and tells me thank you everyday. It’s one of the sweetest things hearing her run into her room in the mornings and yell, “Mom! Mom, I just love my bed!” (my heart melts.)

This AMAZING house bed is from Sweet Home From Wood and I cannot say enough good things about it! She is basically a house bed fairy and has something for everyone. The photos on her site are so darling. I wish I could visit every room featured!

We just got it in the mail yesterday afternoon. I built it by myself and it took about thirty minutes. It was super easy to build, but I also had a tiny cheerleader that wanted it built immediately. The decor shown isn’t permanent. It’s just what I already had in her room. I will be decorating a bit over the next week or so and then giving a grand tour.

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions be sure to leave them in the comments below so I can answer. XO

 

Warmly,

Celeste

Hey Friends!

Today I wanted to share with you an update on Lila’s Montessori closet. Since October is creeping up on us I decided to swap out some of her blush pieces for a few pieces that are a bit more, fall. I love pumpkin colors on Lila!  I wanted to get a few key pieces that would work paired with pieces she already has in her closet as well as on their own.

Since it probably won’t get cold here in Los Angeles until later this year, I decided to get her a few rompers and dresses that she could wear on a warm day but could easily pair with tights and a sweater if it gets cold. The amber skirt leotard with long sleeves is Lila’s favorite piece on her rack and she wants to wear it everyday. We also got these Mini Melissa shoes that I am really excited about! What are some of your fall favorites?

 

Warmly,

Celeste Wright

Tonight with dinner I made an easy summer salad that I have been making on repeat all summer. You can whip up a big plate and enjoy it as a meal or you can make small bowl and have it a side dish. I like to make it in bulk and keep it in the fridge for anytime I am feeling snacky. Ingredients for An Easy Summer Salad are from Milk And Eggs. You can get 40% your entire purchase at Milk & Eggs when you click here for the code.

Sunday Funday

 

Lila’s Outfit: DRESS // SHOES // BACKPACK

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a good weekend. I love the weekend because it means Hubs is home and we usually use of those days to wander around town. Yesterday we ended up in South Pasadena where they host their weekly farmer’s market. We got there pretty early so we had the place to ourselves. We got pastries at a local bakery, walked around a bit, and waited/cheered when a train came by. Lila always runs straight to these rocks whenever she sees them so we let her play with them for a bit. She is getting pretty good at throwing them and Hubs loves making it their little activity.

We brought along our alphabet Chatbook which has 26 photos from my Instagram page and 26 letters. It’s a fun way to read the alphabet but also look back on a memory. One of our favorite artists, Dallas Clayton, designed it making it even more special. We let Lila keep it in her backpack which she has been obsessed with carrying around lately. I’ll link below the book template so you can check it out. It is one of the most special books in Lila’s library right now. And really who can say no to a book?

Today me and Lila are doing a craft so check back in a few days and I’ll share how it turned out. Until next time…<3

Hey There Little Mama


Triokid Deluxe Baby Doll Stroller // Lila’s Shoes

Good Morning Friends!

On our coffee run this morning Lila insisted on bringing her new -adorable- baby doll stroller. We normally wouldn’t let her bring something this big on a walk, but she looks so dang cute pushing it that I caved. You can’t tell from the photos (because she sinks to the bottom) but she puts her little baby Anna from Frozen in it. The whole walk she would say “How ya doin’ Anna? You okay?” It was seriously cute.

Jake and I sipped our cold brew and let her push it around for a bit. We parked the car nearby so we thought it was perfect to let her get some energy out before we packed her back in the carseat. She means serious business with that stroller. And I seriously -can’t even- with how much I love seeing her push it.

I’d be lying if I said seeing her with this little stroller hasn’t given me a feeling or two of wanting a newborn around. Then I remember that when she was that little she wouldn’t sit in the stroller for more than a few minutes without crying for me to hold her. -And the feeling fades.- Haha. Maybe if we get her a baby carrier to practice being a big sister because then it would be way more accurate.

Seriously though, if you are pregnant and need a little help teaching your babe the responsibilities of being a big sister this stroller is perfect for that. OR if your little mama loves babies and needs an excuse to look super cute walking around town, this works great for that too. 😉

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday!

 

Treat your little mama to the cutest baby doll stroller, like ever.

Our Favorite Snack From Picnics To Parties

 

Hi Everyone!

I have still been at home recovering, so one of my favorite things to do with Lila is picnic in the front yard. She loves it because she loves to be outside and I love it because I feel like we are doing something without having to leave home. She gets so excited for our picnics and will choose random things that she wants to bring outside. I always let her fill a basket with fruit from the fridge because what’s the harm in that, right? She will usually eat the apple out of all the fruit she brings out because cantaloupe, mango, and orange all require preparation. My favorite guilt free afternoon snack that makes it to our picnic has to be Harvest Snaps.

If you haven’t tried Harvest Snaps you are seriously missing out. Harvest Snaps are made from real, all-natural peas. They have tons of protein and low fat and sodium. I have been eating them for years and my favorite part is that I have no guilt about snacking on them. Lila and my husband love them almost as much as me, so I always have a snack bag full of them in my diaper bag. They are perfect to take on the go and easy to eat in the car for long drives.

There are also eight different flavors, each better than the last. So you can still switch things up with a new flavor here and there. My favorite flavor is the light salted, because I think they are perfect. I’ll switch things up with tomato basil or mango chile lime. They are also gluten free and dairy free, so that’s a win!

I hope everyone had a great long weekend with family. If you are looking for a delicious, healthy snack for at home or on the go, you can find Harvest Snaps near the produce section almost anywhere. Happy Snacking!

 

*Thank you to Harvest Snaps for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

My Dress // My Shoes // My Tote // Lila’s Dress // Lila’s Shoes // Lila’s Backpack

Hi Everyone!

After a long week at home recovering surgery it felt so good to get dressed in something other than pajamas and hit the town. The second Jake got home from work we went to our local mall so that Lila could run around freely and I could get some fresh air. I wore my new dress from Olive Ave and it instantly became my new favorite. I seriously want my closet to have 20 of these dresses in different colors and patterns. It is comfortable and perfect for adventures.

Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments, messages, and emails with well wishes. Every single one of them lifted my spirit! I can’t wait to feel 100% again. My family has been a huge help this week, whether it was entertaining Lila or keeping me company. I have the best parents and siblings and it’s times like these that make me love them 100x’s more.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
