Oliver's 2nd Birthday!

So we actually just celebrated a first birthday for Wes, but before I post about his party I figured I should back track a bit and share Oliver's 2nd birthday party!

A few months back I ordered this adorable shirt from Trilogy Design and was inspired to have a 2 Legit 2 Quit theme!
*Side note* I have also since discovered this shirt from Hello Little Black Bird and it also would have worked quite nicely. (PS this is totally on my wish list right now!)

Because we had just moved, I sent out evites on Paperless Post for his party. I found this cute cassette tape clip art from Erin Bradley Designs for the invites and edited them using Picasa.


For food I tried to use 90's staples such as bagel bites and hot pockets (except we made our own), dunkaroos and of course, chips and dip!








I found the Peace Sign Cookie Cutter and cupcake toppers on Etsy and the Boom Box Pinata at Target. Also the mini disco balls and Ginger Ray Birthday Confetti were on Amazon! Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of the leftover neon plates!

Doin' the Burbs

At the end of the year, the husband and I jumped the gun and made the move out to the suburbs. While there are things we miss about being closer to the city, we definitely love having the space! That's why I'm super excited to share what we've done with the new house so far. It was nice to have a fresh start with the help of some Pinterest Inspiration!







I especially love having our breakfast nook! It was one of the "must have's" on my list when we were house hunting. What are your favorite rooms in your house? How did anyone decorate their house before Pinterest?

Oh My God Becky, Look At Her Blog!

Soooooo total cliche there I know but.... how long has it been? Yikes! I must admit I am quite embarrassed at how long it's been. BUT I do have a few posts up my sleeve so we'll see if we can keep it up.

The first thing I've been wanting to post about is how we shopped small businesses this Christmas.... ha ha yes, Christmas! (I told you it has been awhile). Although, Mother's Day IS coming up so these would also make excellent gifts for any moms out there!

Isn't this just adorable? And you can't go wrong with Tea Tree & Almond, two of my favorite smells! The best part is you can mix and match your soap sets and they are totally reasonably priced.

The second items are from a seller right here in Houston from the Bueno Bueno Shop! I had been wanting these for a very long time and I finally got my hands on them this year. It worked out just as well because I was able to get the custom key necklace and have Oliver and Wes's names put on it. And of course my look was not complete without this Mama Ring!


Which businesses do you like to support? How do you shop small? I will definitely be needing some more ideas! And thanks for sticking by all this time. I promise to be back with some updates on our new house and Oliver's 2nd Birthday party so be sure to stay tuned!

Back In Action

Oh my! It has been awhile hasn't it? I've been a bit busy chasing after not one, but two busy little boys so please pardon my absence! I figure I need to start with the most current update: We have a new baby boy! Meet Wes Jameson! He is almost 6 months old, so that tells you how long it's been!
Oliver is enjoying being a big brother and we were even able to have some family photos taken when Wes was about 3 months old by the lovely Erika Rae.




Also I found it funny that my last post was about California because we ended up planning a last minute trip to do Disney for my husband's birthday! I don't know what we were thinking but we all survived and had a great time!




Sorry to keep it so brief but life is very busy as a mom of 2! I can't wait to see what the rest of you have been up to after all this time!

California Dreamin

You. Guys.

It must be time for me to hit the beach because these prints have been calling to me! Have you heard of the artist Gray Malin? I'm obsessed these Aerial Photography Prints. Can't you just picture them in your home?



If you haven't heard of him, his art seems to be popping up everywhere!

From these Sperry's

to these delicious chocolates

In the meantime, I just bought this print for my bedroom from Ocean Ave.


But I'm loving this one as well

(Which means I guess I need to add Hawaii on to my list of places to go back and visit!)

And speaking of all my current Wanderlusting... how cute is this coffee shop in L.A.?





Let's go! Where have you been dreaming about lately?

Happy 2015!

***DISCLAIMER: This is a post that was meant to go up at the beginning of the year- whoops! Things have been hectic and crazy and busy but by all means--- I am finally posting on my blog!***

Well another year has flown by. They sure manage to do that, don't they?

We had a pretty great Christmas break, complete with a trip to Dallas and a girl's trip to Vegas!

Not only was it nice to have a break, but it was also nice to take the time to appreciate the things I have in my life. Instead of a Goal or Resolution this year, I'm going to try to focus on being more grateful for what I have and savoring the moments with my little one(s). Think of it like I'm embracing the Less is More concept.

Also with all the traveling, I was reminded of some of my favorite songs from old CD's and I wanted to share my Top 5 Go To songs for the year 2015. I know these songs by heart and they really get me amped up for new beginnings.
What are your Go To songs for 2015?
;

Now, several of these songs are full of choice explicatives and may not fit everyone's taste, so consider yourself warned!

I also made some "art" of my favorite lyrics for your enjoyment.



And can I just say... I was beyond elated when Missy came out for the Super Bowl. Where has she been all my life?!?!?!

And so there you have it. I leave you with a few photos of what I've been up to this year so far, but also feel free to come follow me on Instagram if you aren't already!

Valley of Fire/Vegas trip with my sisters!

Oliver's First Birthday!

Beach Day

32 Weeks ya'll!

Yikes!

Well it's that time of year again.... school madness! I swear it feels like we never had a Summer Break at all... but I digress. Work plus baby has totally taken over my life (which, these things happen) but I've still been wanting to update the old blog about life happenings!

First.... we just had Oliver's first Halloween! I debated on whether or not to even get him a costume, but in the long run I couldn't resist this shark costume!



And even then, I had the last minute idea of going as Forrest Gump, Jenny and Lieutenant Dan... it was perfect because we already had the clothes... I guess you could say we already dress like Forrest and Jinn-ay.... #whoops

I am also super excited about planning our trip to New Orleans for Thanksgiving! Do you have any tips (especially on things to do for Thanksgiving?) Of course I already found where to get the donuts....

Before (or after, who really knows) there was the cronut... there was the do'sant.... oh my! We will definitely be hunting one down at Manhattan Jacks!

And of course we can't pass these up either... we'll also be making a stop at District Donuts!

Somehow we will have to still make room for beignets... oh yeah and turkey (or possibly some turducken!)

And lastly, if you follow me on Instagram you've already heard the news but just in case....
