Marley’s Room

I love when others share the inspiration behind their children’s rooms. Creating a special space for your little one can be hard, but is so worth it! To be honest, if I could get a job exclusively designing nurseries, that’d be ideal 😂

1. Wall Decals (similar)       2. White Book Ledge       3. Glider

I love finding unique pieces or making something old new again. I also spend a lot of time just browsing small shops for different items (much to my husband’s dismay).

Marley’s room is one of my favorite spots in our home. When she was just a babe in my belly I knew I wanted her nursery to be a dreamy little girl room but not TOO girly. I incorporated greys, metals, dark purples and pinks to complete the look. I wanted a lot of these items to be able to transition to a “big girl” room and I think they will!

Marley is almost 17 months old so I know before long we will be updating this space to a “big girl” room. I’m not sure what the plan will be when that time comes but I know a lot of these items are transitional.

1. Every Little Thing Print 2. Metal Letter M 

I splurged on items I felt made the space complete but also saved on larger items such as the dresser and nightstand. We also reused the babyletto crib that was Kellan’s. Some items I splurged on were the West Elm wire wall rack (similar), Bla Bla knit doll and the the giraffe print.

Active Family

Do you stick to your new years resolutions? This year I decided to give it a try. . .

I was sick of feeling uncomfortable and self conscious. I felt unhealthy and wanted to make a change and commit to living a healthier lifestyle. I can honestly say this past year has been a challenge but I feel more confident and happier than ever.

Because I chose to make this change, it obviously directly affected my family. Whenever possible, I try to get my whole family active! This doesn’t mean going to a gym, we love taking outdoor walks through our community trails, playing hide and seek outside, or exploring local playgrounds. In the winter we visit indoor gyms and bounce houses with the kids and not only is it a great activity for them it also tires them out!

This past summer Kellan turned 3 and I  knew I wanted to sign him up for soccer. This has been so great for him! He gets to run around one night a week and also gets a chance to interact with other kids his age. We are keeping it going and have him signed him up for the fall and winter leagues. As soon as Marley turns 2, I would love to enroll her in dance classes!

One product that is awesome for active families or even families that are often on the go, is the Nuby Snack N’ Sip cup. We love to take this cup with us on walks or to soccer practice. I stuff the cup with goldfish, puffs or raisins for the kids and it doubles as a sippy cup! I love that it is BPA free and spill proof.

How do you and your family stay active and what are your must have products for active lifestyles? I’d love to read any suggestions in the comments!

Friday Favorite’s Featuring Nuby…

In our house we go through different style cups and sippy’s pretty frequently. We have two very different children who are at different “phases” of cup needs.

I’ve used Nuby products for my children for a few years now and I know their products are made to withstand two very active toddlers.

Marley has just transitioned from a bottle and has strictly been using a straw “sippy” cup. I was excited to introduce her to the Nuby 360 Wonder cup. I couldn’t believe how fast she started using it! This cup is BPA free, durable and comes in so many adorable designs for boys or girls. We obviously went with #pink. You can find these cups at Babies R’ Us!

Kellan has also used many different style cups throughout the years. He has recently started his fall soccer league and I really wanted to upgrade him to, what I liked to call, his “big boy” sippy cup. In truth, this is Nuby’s flip-it cup and it’s awesome! He loved the shark design and the flip-it lid. I love how durable it is and also how it really feels like the “next step” up in his cup game.  I mean, who does this kid think he is looking like a 13 year old?!
