Downlite Bedding Pillows

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Nothing is better than a good night's sleep... am I right?! Where are all my caffeinated parents at? ;) Downlite Bedding sent us some amazingly comfortable Tommy Bahama pillows and M and I slept like babies on them... until the babies woke us up. ;)

The Tommy Bahama pillows we received were made from a down alternative with aqualoft liquid-like gel fibers. The pillow case itself is made of supersoft quilted microfibers and *bonus* it is machine washable!

Blair highly approves of the pillows too and claims they are perfect for pillow fighting! ;)

If you want to take a step forward to improve your night sleep use code LBGEN15 for 15% off on pillows of your choice at Downlite Bedding!

Modern Farmhouse Laundry Room Remodel

Monday, February 19, 2018

I've been allllll over the Pinterest boards lately pinning laundry room after laundry room. We're finally taking our laundry room up a notch and I've been having a lot of fun checking out the trends.

I'll be doing my best to keep you guys posted on the progress (because everyone loves a good before and after, right?!). Here is our befores... faux granite formica counter tops and all! Haha. The only thing that isn't being redone yet is the flooring... once we get a money tree we can get new floors throughout our house! ;)
Also, the walls are grey... not sure why they look pink?!

I'm in love with all the marble counters that are going on right now. Unfortunately I hear that marble is super high maintenance and I've already got Cal for that so no thanks. Luckily quartz has some great look-alike options that I really liked. I picked out a slab that didn't have too much movement since I don't want to tire of it quickly.

Last weekend M an I headed to hell IKEA and grabbed their square farmhouse style sink (such a deal!) along with a few other trinkets I liked. Tomorrow I call to get "demo day" on the calendar and yay we are on our way!

Here are some of my favorite laundry rooms below. Check out my Pinterest Board to see the rest!

Are you guys digging the brass hardware trend? I LOVE it but I'm scared it will go out soon. I also really like all the matte black I've been seeing and that seems a bit safer. Thoughts?

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you are celebrating with your significant other, kiddos, or girlfriends I hope that your day is full of treats (because duh!) and lots of love!

Poor Cal napped through the girls' afternoon treats but they were celebrating "Galentines" Day anyway so that would have been awkward for him. ;)

Beddy's: Zippable bedding!

Sunday, February 11, 2018

Blair is a crafty one let me tell you. One of her chores is to make her bed in the morning. She's decided this is too much work so instead of sleeping in her bed she sleeps on her bed with a throw blanket over herself. This makes "making her bed" pretty painless but her nights can be a little chilly.

I recently discovered Beddy's on Instagram and *poof* problem solved! Beddy's is seriously one of the most genius inventions in bedding out there. The sides of the comforter zip up! There are no sheets to pull up either because a fitted sheet is sewn inside along with a super soft minky material. When I showed it to Blair she was literally squeeling with delight haha. Blair's Beddy's is pink but they come in an array of colors for girls and boys. I was excited that her set not only came with the zipping comforter but two pillow cases and matching shams...score! No more having to buy sheets!

I definitely recommend Beddy's... cute and functional combine to make a mom (and kid) win! This post is sponsored by Beddy's but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I've been working on Blair's "surprise" party recently... you know... the one that she told me to throw for her? The one where she gave me three themes to choose from? She kills me.

Anyway, it inspired me to post some of my all time favorite parties that I've thrown. Take a look! I've got everything from donuts to Peppa Pig. :)
