We have had the keys to our house for ALMOST a whole year! I guess that means it’s about time I get our living room up on the blog! This space feels so cozy and perfect for our family. It is where we spend most of our time when we are home, and I can’t believe we get to countinue to make memories here! So let’s get right on down to the main reason you’re all here…LINKS! I have linked all that I am able to! Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about anything!
It’s my most favorite time of the year EVER!!! I love to get started early on wrapping all my gifts so I can take my time and actually enjoy it instead of feeling crazy and rushed! I say NO to gift bags during Christmas time and love to use greenery, fun ribbons, and craft paper!
Here is a super easy and fun way to wrap your Christmas presents this season!
This is such an easy tutorial! It is even a fun one to let the kiddos jump in and help with! Bexley loves helping me stamp the wrapping paper.
Step 1: measure your craft paper for the specific gift you are wrapping, and cut it. Step 2: lay your cut piece on a flat/hard surface and use your stamp to randomly stamp all around the paper. You can get creative with this step!
Step 3: Let your stamp dry and then wrap your present! Step 4: Layer up some fun ribbons and wrap your present up!
Step 5: Cut off a few small pieces of the greenery and slip them under the ribbon! Step 6: Add a gift tag! You can stamp your gift tag, write on it yourself, use a sticker, or even let your kiddos draw a picture on it! Such an easy way to make your gifts look stunning this year! Remember the key is to have fun and be creative!

It’s that time of the year again when you have no idea what to buy anyone! Hooray! In honor of Jovie babes first Christmas, I have put together a baby gift guide for all those cute little babies in your life!
Fill and Spill Beaver: This is adorable and perfect for any baby who loves to take stuff out and put it back in all day long!
Ball Popper: The snail was just too adorable to pass up, and I was completely sold when I saw that it lights up too!
Roly Poly Owl: Another adorable toy that I couldn’t pass up. This toy is perfect for when baby is just starting to sit up (and beyond) It also lights up!
Silver Lining Cloud Baby’s View Activity Center: This is Jovie’s “large” gift this year from Santa! I wanted to think of something she actually needed and when I saw this activity center I totally loved the clouds and rainbow! SO cute and practical!
Looky-Looky Crawl Along Mirror: This is so cute when baby is learning to crawl! Non-Toys! (Because sometimes it is nice to buy some things that baby actually needs, they don’t know either way!)
Skip Hop Zoo Tuck-Away Bib: This is perfect for the baby bag or to keep in the back of the high chair, and comes in SO MANY adorable animals!
Skip Hop Zoo Silicone Bib: This is another great bib! I love these because they have a pouch to catch food AND they are so easy to wipe or wash clean.
Accordion Zebra: Squishy and cuddly, and all around CUTE! It squeaks, crinkles and lets your baby make their own music!
Skip Hop Bandana Buddies Activity Toy: These come in so many different cute animals to pick from and have several different activities on them for baby. These are great to hook to the carseat or stroller!
