Are You SUN-Ready? | Splash Pad Essentials

Now that Arizona has hit the triple digits, splash pad season is upon us.  With the amount of time we spend outside and as an Arizona mama of two fair skinned girls, that means we need to take sun protection seriously.  One way I do so is always being prepared, and since we are always on the go, I like to keep a splash pad essential bag in my car at all times.  This keeps us ready for any adventure that comes our way!  I have found that there are a few essential items to have in your bag to keep you SUN-ready, but there is one that you can’t leave home without… Blue Lizard® Australian Sunscreen Baby!

Boxwood Wreath Tutorial | DIY Home Decor

I love having greenery in my home, there is something so refreshing about greenery.  I will admit that I do not have much of a green thumb so I am always on the lookout for authentic looking plants and decor without the hassle of keeping a real plant alive.  One greenery item that I absolutely adore is the preserved boxwood leaves, especially as wreaths.  They look good all the time and they are fun to use as statement decor pieces.

This DIY project came to life when I fell in love with the 11″ Smith & Hawken™ preserved boxwood leaves wreath at Target because it is fabulous!  The color is a rich green, it comes with a woven hanger and it looks so real!  It inspired me to get creative and do a little DIYing!

I have been wanting to add a fun wreath to my eat-in breakfast nook in my kitchen and this wreath was perfect to work with.  So I picked up my wreath and ran over to Michaels to select a roll of ribbon… and got crafty.

She’s Two Fancy | 2nd Birthday Party

My baby is two so you know what that means – PARTY time!

Since we did the big first birthday party, we decided to scale back this year and just celebrate with a few close family members.  But, just because it is a small party doesn’t mean it doesn’t need a festive theme and cute decorative touches! I decided to hit up Target (one of my favorite spots) for all of the birthday decor and as usual I found more than enough goodies.

Let’s Stay Home | Sincerely Us – Shop Feature

The perfect print can give new life to any space. We have this large wall above our buffet in our kitchen and I have been looking for the right piece to fill the space for quite some time.  As you know, picking the perfect statement piece is not that simple; it must be the right size for the wall, must combine all of the styles in the room and since it is the focal point it must be eye catching.  After months of searching I fell in love with the Sincerely Us SHOP on Instagram and once I saw this print, I knew it was the perfect addition for our room.  It is simple, yet striking and exactly what I was looking for.  It displays a saying that speaks us as a family.
