Free Printable: Neutral Baby Shower Invite

It was exactly a year ago yesterday that “Baby Moran” and I were showered with love and gifts from friends and family. It was such a memorable day… a realization of the journey into the motherhood lay before me in the form of diapers, wipes, bottles and diapers. Diapers. Lots of diapers which I was […]

DIY Baby Basket Changing Pad

Holy grandmother’s spatula it’s already Thursday!!! I learned this expression earlier this week and thought it was worth repeating. Haha! I just laughed for you in case you don’t appreciate my corny humor!  Anywho, today I wanted to share another quick DIY I used in Ren’s nursery. It’s so simple but I thought it warranted […]

DIY Hidden Tab Curtains Using Cafe Rings

I can’t remember the last time I bought curtains. I’m not really sure I’ve ever bought curtains for that matter. My grandma taught me to sew before I ever stepped foot in a classroom. I learned quickly that if I couldn’t afford the look I wanted from pictures in my favorite magazines, then I would […]

Ren’s Room Reveal

Ren’s Room Reveal

It’s time for the BIG reveal! Ren’s room was originally our bedroom, then became bedroom/storage room during our house renovations last summer. I’m happy to say it is finally in order! With all the craziness I didn’t bother painting his room even though I was tempted! I like that it’s neutral and this room can […]

Ren’s Nursery Room Inspiration

This post has been a long time coming… now that Ren is EIGHT MONTHS OLD!!! If you have been following my blog for awhile now you know that Ren’s gender was kept a surprise and we didn’t have a nursery prepared for him beforehand due to extensive home renovations last summer. Although it took us […]

I turn around for one second…

I turn around for one second…

And I have a 6-month-old! If the first six months can go by that quickly with cuddles and frequent nap times, I can’t imagine how fast it will fly now that I’m beginning to chase his every move! “No-no don’t touch that” “Ouch, that is mommy’s hair” “Time for a baby gate” “Is that baby […]

Ren’s Baptism

Ren’s Baptism

About 10 days ago, on a Saturday evening, we baptized our sweet little boy. It was a special day for us and of course a special day for Ren! We gathered our families for the occasion. Grandma Eye (my mom, Carla) helped Ren put on his baptismal gown. This gown was handmade by Grandma Moran […]

Mama Monday: DIY Winter Car Seat Cover

Ren is three months now! I’m loving this stage right now! He’s making all sorts of noises, smiling so big and giggling! It’s my new purpose in life to see how big I can get him to smile or how much I can make him giggle. I’m afraid I won’t get anything else done during […]

It’s A Boy!

It’s A Boy!

Hi. It’s me. I’m still here… Some of you may have been wondering if I was ever coming back! I don’t really know where to jump back into this blogging thing but it only seems right to go back to where we left off… Exactly six weeks ago today, we welcomed a new baby BOY […]

Waiting To Meet You

Waiting To Meet You

Waiting… Seems like all we do these days is wait. Wait on contractors. Wait on a house. Wait on a baby. Wait. Wait. Wait. I’m feeling as if time is moving so quickly yet I’m stuck… like a hamster on a wheel… just waiting for everything to change. Because any day now, EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE. […]
