A Mom’s Baby Crib Decor Perfection

Well, that baby bump is a little more than a baby bump now, so I think it is probably a good time to start getting the baby room set up :p I have been putting it off for so long because I didn’t want to jinx anything! I don’t know if it was all of my friends and family telling me that I needed to get started on it, or the realization that I am actually due pretty soon… or both that got me actually going on getting that baby crib decor and nursery, baby ready.

I like to think that I have a bit of a different style. I tend to stray away from the fashion trends that are going around. I like to take some of the trends and turn it my own way, or just completely go another rout… without looking completely insane! For my baby’s room, I wanted to do something really special of course. This is where my baby is going to be growing up, so I want it to be a place he or she will love, have fun in, and feel absolutely comfortable in. Because of this, I didn’t want to go over board with the colors, and maybe do something a little more with the patterns and prints.

My sister some of her kids clothes from Naartjie Kids, and I totally love them because they are a little different and not your typical kids clothes. When I found out they had bedding, I was pretty excited that I could stop stressing and putting off the nursery and actually have fun getting all of the room together.

We wanted to wait until the day of the birth to find out the sex of the baby. This does add a bit of a stress on what color we are going to chose for the baby room. When I saw that Naartjie had a gray chevron print bedding set I couldn’t have asked for a better option. Chevron is trending right now, but it isn’t something you see done for babies’ rooms. How perfect for me, right? chevron baby bedding

I bought all of the baby crib decor because I just loved it all together as is, and then I bought a couple of the extra pieces to go along with the room and tie it all together. After I had the room painted, furniture in, baby crib decor and other accessories, I was able to find a couple of my own pieces that just added a little bit of me and his or her family into the room. I totally love the combination of the chevron print next to the zoo print. They really compliment each other and really give this baby’s room a look like no other.

I am seriously way too excited to bring home the baby to his or her new nursery to grow up in! Please tell me about your nursery designing experiences! I would love to hear them!

These AR-15 Tactical Accessories Are Top of the Line

arMy dad has a serious hobby and he’s been into ever since I can remember. He loves guns, is a great shooter, and has quite the collection. I must say that I wasn’t always fond of this hobby while growing up because I think it scared a lot of boyfriends that I had in high school away. Now, I can say that in hindsight this was probably a good thing! I am older now and have taken this hobby up with him. Once or twice a month, we’ll go out to lunch together and pack up our favorite guns and head to the shooting range to do some target practice.

For Father’s Day, I’m planning on ordering him some AR-15 tactical accessories that he’s been eyeing up online. He’s going to be so excited and I have to admit that I can’t wait to use them as well!

The Ultimate Product for Wine Lovers

wine air seal


I’m a wine lover. I have a wine-themed kitchen, regularly throw wine tasting parties, and love going to the local vineyards around the area. I’ve learned so much over time about how wine is made and essentially how it “works”.

I’m always looking for the latest and greatest products to purchase for myself and for my friends as gifts. I found this this air cork wine sealer and instantly knew that I had to get it. Once a bottle of wine is opened, it begins to oxidize. This changes the flavor as well as the components of the wine. With this product, you pump up the grapes and it creates an airtight seal to prevent the oxidation. Even better is that it’s less than $8! This would make a fantastic gift for the wine lovers in your life…including yourself!

Feminine Touches With Bridesmaid Luncheon Invitations

If you are married or have been part of someone else’s wedding then I’m sure you have been to a bachelorette party before. Sure they are fun, but they can cost a lot of money and aren’t for every bride. I’m in an upcoming wedding this Summer so as the made of honor it’s my duty to set up the bachelorette. The bride, my best friend, isn’t much of a party girl so I don’t think throwing her a bachelorette would be her favorite thing. Instead, I’m throwing a Bridesmaid luncheon. I haven’t heard of anyone personally doing this but I know that it is the next “big” thing.

Not only will this luncheon be limited to only bridesmaids but all girls within our circle of friends and family. It will be “girly” themed with pretty cupcakes, flowers, and believe it or not I found bridesmaid luncheon invitations to help tie the whole theme together. The reason I’m super excited about this is because the bride has NO idea that I am planning this. I’m not gonna lie it will be really tough considering we are besties but I really want to give her this special day. Are you doing the traditional bachelorette party or are you trying something new out?
