Nursery Corner Vision Board With Wayfair

Hi Friends!

I can't believe I am 30 weeks pregnant with baby Sadie! I feel like right when I hit 30 weeks time starts flying! But then the week before my due date seems to be the slowest time ever, haha!

We have finally started to get her little nursery corner ready and I can't wait to share it with you when I am done. Before I do that though I wanted to share a little vision board that I put together with my friends from Wayfair.

This vibe is totally different than anything I have done before and I LOVE it. I love how calm and clean everything is. It is perfect for our shared space with baby girl. I hope this gives you some fun ideas if you are planning your own babes nursery!

In love, Rachel

Best Of Personalized Gifts

Hi friends!

Christmas will be here before we know it! I am so excited for this year! Avery and Ryder are at such fun ages these next few days are going to be a blast.

This year I was looking into a bunch of different personalized gift options that would be PERFECT for any holliday and I want to share the best ones!

  1. Thirty One Crossbody: These bags are so neat! You can pick your style, color, flap, fabric for the flap and strap. The coolest part? You can personalize the flap! There are so many options too! In mine I can fit 2 diapers, wipes, my wallet, sunglasses, and a few other little things. It's a great bag and I love that I can switch it up.

2. Shutterfly Ornament: These are inexpensive but durable! They will definitely last for many years on your tree. Perfect as a gift or as something you get every year with your family's picture on it. 

3. Origami Owl Locket: If you have been around for a bit you know I love Origami Owl! I first fell in love with them in 2013 and still love all their stuff. One thing I love about giving people lockets is the fact I can always gift them new charms, or chains! There are so many charms available now for these lockets you can find something for everyone

4.  Mountain Feather Designs Jewelry: I felt so lucky when I stumbled upon this company! A fellow mama, Kayla owns the company and creates the pieces herself. There are tons of amazing options and one my favorites were the stacking rings.

So pretty and subtle but hold a huge meaning. I asked Kayla to share a bit about her shop:

"I'm a mama to 4 that created Mountain Feather Designs as a way to give back to Nationwide Childrens Hopsital where my third child,  Aiden, has spent most of his life. We wanted a way to bless families who are hospitalized with their children and we also make memorial pieces to honor the children who have passed away. Everything is made with so much love in my hand studio which also allows me to work from home while I care for Aiden! We are so grateful for the love and support of our family business that allows us to give back to our local hospital. "

If you go and see what she has you will fall in love with so many of her pieces!

I hope you enjoyed this post and found your new go to for a personalized gift! 

Merry Christmas!

In love, Rachel

Quality Time Before Baby Sister

Hello again!

Can you believe that Christmas is in 7 days! Oh my goodness, sorry to be that person but, TIME IS FLYING.

I am officially 22 weeks pregnant now which means we are more than halfway to meeting miss Sadie Jane. I am so so excited!

This month has been really hard for our family and I don't want to be vague but for right now I can't give details. When I can share I will, because God gets all the glory! I could tell that with everything going on Avery was definitely in need of some one on one time. Her love language is quality time for sure! You could get the kid everything in the world but all she really wants is just your undivided attention and to play together! She has the sweetest heart, and when she gets a little sour I can tell she needs a to go on a date with me or Blake and I.

So we went out in our Matilda Jane outfits and had a blast! So many people complimented Avery on her dress, she loves to wear it! Twirling in it makes everything more fun!

Our first stop was the ice cream shop! We both got chocolate and said "cheers" with our cones.

Next stop was this park right by the lake, it is a smaller park but had a ton of kiddos to play with. Something monumental happened here people! Avery finally mastered the "fireman's pole" (that is what its called right.... haha!) And she was SO EXCITED. It was really cool to be able to see her do something for the first time and be so happy she did it by practicing. 

We brought along her new favorite Annika doll, Matilda Jane carries doll clothes that match the girls line and it is so amazing! The quality of everything is unreal. 

The bump was out and peeking through this tank! Which works great for pregnancy, but is such a cute cut it is going to be awesome for postpartum! And my olive leggings feel like heaven and they have details on them that make them look like pants. So comfy! Also going to be perfect for after baby. 

The biggest thing I have learned about having a kiddo who thrives with regular quality time is that it doesn't have to be fancy. 

We have done everything from taking her to Disneyland to just taking her brother to grandmas so we could play dolls. 

And while these outings are fun depending on the season I might not be able to make them happen.  We regularly use Ryder's nap time to draw together or play outside. I know it is going to be a huge adjustment adding another sweet baby to our family but I am hopeful that we will still get our little opportunities to connect. 

We had such a special time and I am so thankful we got the chance to get out of the house together. I hope these little moments turn in to big memories for this little girl! Before I go I want to give a huge thank you to Matilda Jane for sending us our sweet outfits that were just perfect for our date! Please go read what they are all about here I promise you be just obsessed as I am after reading about their company!
