Newborn and toddler life is a whirlwind of motion. My son is always in motion (up, down, spinning, climbing, falling, running, splashing, throwing– really he doesn’t stop unless it’s naptime.) The baby just likes to be in motion (swinging, bouncing, wearing, walking..) It’s kinda crazy, but there are moments of peace here and there. This time around I’ve found some practically cute baby products to help get us through the crazy! And not practically cute as in “almost cute,” rather super practical and super cute at the same time!
I’ve finally reached the end of pregnancy with baby number two! Any day now. I’m basically begging my body to go into labor, but so far no dice. I’m excited and not nervous this time around knowing what is in store. I’m definitely praying it goes faster than my previous 22.5 hour labor, but we’ll see what happens. I’m also ready because the tiny house girls nursery is done!
Hey friends! It’s summertime and we’re all running around outside in the heat and maaaaybe forgetting the plants inside that need water and other things (new soil? I don’t know..) to survive. I love plants buuut I have a hard time keeping them alive. So I love artwork of plants that don’t require anything but being ordered from the Costco Print Center and hung up on my wall! So I’ve created this free succulent artwork for anyone to print out and hang up! No watering can necessary!
I thought it would be neat to have two ombre sets of little cactus pots to print out for a collection and some simple watercolor succulent pots to use for a sweet neutral space. Just click on the images to be taken to their full size counterparts and save them to your desktop to be printed!
I know pineapples aren’t succulents. But they felt so summery festive that I wanted to include them in this bundle. Enjoy! Tag me @petitemodernlife in any Instagram pictures of your succulent prints in your home!
Baby girl will be here in another 4 weeks. Whenever we voice the time remaining to each other we usually start chuckling like crazy people because that’s what we feel like! Here we are, kind of homeless (**but really not and so so grateful for that**) in our little apartment space with a built in bedroom for our toddler and a moses basket in our bedroom/office/nursery and we’re bringing another baby into the world! I guess everything feels a little discombobulated, crazy, but exactly as it should be at the same time.
Well friends, let the Third Home category commence because we did it. We bought property in Lake Chelan to build our dream home on! The past couple years we’ve continually property hunted around Lake Chelan, gauging the prices, locations, and sizes of the different areas- oh – and the views. We agreed that if we ever bought property over there a view of the lake and mountains was a must, because how could we not in such a gorgeous place?!
We’ve said goodbye to our sweet second home where many adventures occurred in the short year and a half that we lived there. Mainly having our first baby! It was the first time I’ve been emotional moving out of a home. (And I was pregnant moving out of the last one too! :P ) Here’s our second home farewell tour.
I haven’t shared many pictures of the master bedroom because it never felt finished. What I think I mean by that is we never got around to putting together the second nightstand. Yes, it’s still in a box somewhere waiting to madeover like the one in the picture. But because the bedroom was clean and spotless for our listing/touring pictures I decided I’d just as well photograph it because I really do love this neutral calm master bedroom.
