Church Nursery Redesign

BEFORE         AFTER *I don’t know why the before pictures are rotated vertically, sorry. When I edit the post they are correct but then show up different once published 🙁 Hi There!

Our church nursery needed some TLC especially since little Jacob would be going there during services lol. Yes, one of the main reason I took this on was […]

Cocoa Beach

Hi Friends! So we’ve been here in Orlando on a family vacation with my sister, her husband, my brother and his family and my parents. It’s been great but its soo funny how something ALWAYS happens to us (my family specifically) when we come, lol. Last year we came with Callie and she got an ear infection and the year before that we came again with the family and Joshio lost the van keys while we were at downtown Disney. We ended up calling a lock smith and had to pay $300 for a new key. Well this year we […]

Blondie

Hi Friends! So we all know I love to take pictures, right? 🙂 The top pictures in this post are actually from a Sunday we went to eat at Red Lobster (which I hate) after church. I saw the red wall and couldn’t resist-haha! They’re also good “before” pics of what my hair looked like since it had been months since touching it up. I love taking random pictures though mainly because I like documenting our day to day. A few memories from this day- Callie ordered a daiquiri (virgin of course), she saw how pretty and colorful it was and […]

Baby Jacob | 4 Months

  Hi There! Jacob turned four months last week and I wanted to document a few things before I forget! When he was born I kept thinking, what did we do with Callie? How was she sleeping at this stage? How much was she eating? It’s crazy how we forget all the small things that at the moment are so important. So here we go… Jacob is such a sweetheart! However, in the beginning he was a very complicated and a fussy baby…lol. He was a lot harder to figure out than Callie and was always fussing about something. He […]

Hello World! Jacob’s Birth Story

Well, it’s been a week since little man joined our little family and we couldn’t be happier. He truly is a special little boy 🙂 So to start off; let’s just say that I had somewhat of a “birth plan” that went flying out the door when the day came lol. I had a doctor’s appointment Thursday 3/23 and by that time my mucus plug had started to come out and I was dilated 1cm. I still didn’t think much of it and thought Jacob would arrive later but by that Saturday morning (3/25) at 6:30am I started with contractions. […]

Baby Boy Nursery Tour

Hi Everyone! So I’m keeping myself occupied while we wait for little man and I wanted to do a nursery tour 🙂 I really love how his room turned out. I mention where I got most of the items in the video. So about that wall- I had asked a contractor how much he would charge me to do something like this and his quote was for $700!!! Not that he overpriced because it is a lot of work but mainly because we didn’t want to spend that much. So I googled, pinterested and youtubed and finally came up with […]
