A room for our big girl

Kate has been settled in her new big girl room for a couple months now and it's finally close to being complete! I went for a super simple shabby chic look all while making it a perfect place for a little girl to play and let her imagination go wild.

A trundle bed complete with the Shabby Chic bedding by Rachel Ashwell from Target
and of course her family of pigs.

Kate's reading area. The kid is a book worm. 
I especially love the bookcase. It was my grandpa Marshall's moms.
We painted it white, can't believe how perfect it is in her room. 
I still need to fill all the frames and add a couple more touches but we're getting there.

Her little couch pulls out into a bed which Kate thinks is super cool!

The other side of the room has a toy box that is filled with all her favorite toys along with her rocking pig.

The Details

We had a custom window shade made for her room which has a built in black out shade.
Very simple and girly.

A sweet piece I found at Home Goods

Bought an extra pillow sham that goes with her bedding, cut it up, assembled and added glass knobs to match the ones on her closet doors.

Ordered these from this Etsy shop

I'm looking for something to go over her bed and a TV for the wall and then it will be complete! 
One of my favorite things is snuggling in her bed and reading stories together. It's so peaceful.
I also love that as I look around her room I am reminded of so many loved ones from things they either gave her or have passed down to us.
The best part of all is how much she loves it and will sit and play in there for hours. 

This is what her room looked like before when it was our office.

Our little house is complete!!!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
