The last 9 months have been some of the most exciting for our family. In October we found out we were expecting and ever since, we have be preparing for little one’s arrival.
From the start we knew we wanted the gender to be a surprise. We felt that because so few things are kept secret anymore — we knew that waiting until the birth would be so special (we also kept our pregnancy off of social media). Although I found it very easy not knowing the gender of the baby, it did make planning for the baby and decorating for the nursery a little more difficult.
Our little baby GIRL, nicknamed “McFly”, arrived on May 27th and is more sweet and beautiful than I ever could have imagined.
Her nursery is a perfect fit for her. I’m so excited to share her room with you.Most of our home has a very bohemian look and feel and I wanted to carry that same theme into the nursery. I wanted plants, baskets, rugs, and natural fibers. Continue reading →
I’m gaining another sister in May and I’m so very excited. My brother-in-law is getting married to the most amazing young lady and I couldn’t be more excited. The moment they got engaged I knew I wanted to throw her a bridal shower.
I, along with a few other of her bridesmaids, threw her a shower recently and I like to think it was a success. It was deinifely a DIY affair but went off without a single issue.
The first step was getting the invitiation together. Yes, there are tons of places where you can buy bridal shower invites, but I opted to design Kat’s on my own. I started by figuring out the lettering style I wanted and what I wanted it to say. We settled on “Brunch with the Bride”. Once I had a look I liked, I scanned the lettering to my computer and used a design software to come up with the final look.
My sister hosted a Christmas cookie swap this weekend and it was such a success. All of the guests brought such a great assortment of cookies and my husband was ecstatic when I walked in the house with a perfect mix of holiday cookies.
This past week was an unexpectedly stressful week for us filled with Christmas parties, unplanned get togethers, and an EXTREMELY sick dog. When it came time to start baking for the cookie swap I was wiped out. I wanted to make something home made and delicious but I didn’t really have time or energy to whip up some complex, cookie cutter, frosted masterpiece.
