Gender Neutral Modern Bohemian Nursery

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Teeny and Tiny's nursery is 95% done and I really do love how it turned out. I went with a modern bohemian theme for their gender neutral nursery. Since I wanted a lot of texture I incorporated natural wood, cement, agate stones, cacti, succulents and a woven rug. I kept the walls and curtains neutral so it can grow with them (and ultimately baby girl twin).

For the first several weeks of designing the nursery I thought both babies were boys. I wasn't starting over once we found out baby A was actually a girl so I included some more feminine colors in the sheets. I think it's the perfect balance.

Remember my original mood board? And the finished product below...

I still need to swap out the chandelier and am waiting for an agate night light to arrive. Other than that I'm done! The pictures really don't do it justice but overall I'm really happy with their space. I just can't wait to cuddle those babies in their sweet room.

Lily Jade Diaper Bag

Friday, May 27, 2016

I've never been this excited about a diaper bag before. Probably because it's only a diaper bag for when you need it to be and then *poof* it morphs into a chic purse! The Lily Jade diaper bag is magic I tell you. It was a tough choice but I ended up choosing the "Elizabeth" bag in brandy with gold hardware.

Lily Jade meets all my  basic requirements for a diaper bag:
-stylish and NOT babyish
-can be worn as a backpack

Then there's more!
The Lily Jade diaper bag is 100% genuine leather. Um hello chicest diaper bag ever! After the twins are through with needing a diaper bag I can remove the inner shell and use it as purse. I love that it can be worn as a cross body. Hands free is always a necessity, especially with kiddos.

This diaper bag is ridiculously spacious (wait till you see everything I fit in mine!) which I will be needing with double the stuff. It has over 14 pockets so my OCD self can organize like a boss. It also comes with a changing pad that is easy to get in and out.

Removable inner shell

All these items fit into the shell alone!
And all of this was in the entire diaper bag!

Here's a break down of what I have inside:
2 muslin blankets
2 nursing/car seat covers
2 knotted gowns
2 onesies
2 hats
2 drooling bibs
1 burp cloth
2 binkies
2 teething toys
1 nipple shield (in case)
1 bottle
2 diapers
1 wet bag (for soiled cloth diapers)

If you aren't impressed I don't know what to say. I just realized I'll need to throw some wipes in there but I'm sure they will fit. ;) Lily Jade has seriously got this chic diaper bag thing down. And while this is silly, even some celebrities have one and that makes me feel a little more special. :) If it is good enough for them then it is certainly good enough for me (and then some!).

A huge thank you to Lily Jade for sending us this fabulous bag. I've got it all packed and ready to go to the hospital. Let's hope that isn't any time soon though!

Tiny Prints Invitations for a Modern Geometric Shower

Thursday, May 26, 2016

I loved the modern geometric vibe of my baby shower and the invitations we used from Tiny Prints gave guests a sneak peek at what was in store! We came thisclose to having a snafu with the invitations saying "twin boys" but luckily they worked with us to change it to say "twins" in the nick of time. Tiny Prints always accommodates my needs and has such a great selection of stationary. They were also gracious enough to let us choose some favor stickers and thank you cards as well! Check them out below...

I love the simplicity of the design; it really complemented the shower decor well!

Guests went away with home made sugar cookies in geometric shapes and were reminded to use the hashtag #teenyandtiny. :)

Writing thank you cards is more fun with cute stationary! Don't you agree?
I'm always so impressed with the quality of Tiny Prints. Thank you again for making my shower so special and memorable! To check out the rest of the shower go HERE.

Teeny and Tiny's Baby Shower

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

I was completely overwhelmed this weekend by the beautiful shower my friends threw for me. It was so surreal to be at my baby shower. And of course I would have been thrilled with any type of low key gathering to celebrate these little lives but they pulled out all the stops!

The girls went with a modern geometric theme and incorporated a lot of natural elements such as moss, cement, succulents, and wood. It was seriously SO creative and well done. I'm still daydreaming over all the details and scrolling through the pictures in my camera roll!

The girls dyed all the table runners themselves! They were each unique and beautiful.

The garlands were sewn cute!

Don't miss the amazing geometric shapes hanging above the food...they were created from straws!

Probably my favorite part of the whole shower...the amazing geometric back drop behind the dessert table.

So thankful for these dear friends and the gorgeous shower they threw!

Sweet little E & C! I can't wait to meet you! But please not for a while. ;)
A big thank you to my Mom for the delicious food. Cafe Rio never disappoints! Every day I wake up and can't believe the blessings that God has given me. I have to pinch myself all the time. To go from so much pain to so much beauty makes me so grateful. Of course I cried at the shower but all tears of joy! God's plan was so much better than what I could have imagined.
