Baby #3's Room

We've got just over 3 weeks to go before we meet our baby boy...no more time to dilly daly I had to get his room done stat! I've had most everything for a while but I finally got it all organized and where it needed to be! After using the same adorable bedding from Land of Nod with the first 2 babies I need to switch things up for baby #3. (to see Evangeline's nursery click here) I went with the new Cloud Island sheets etc from Target...I had known I was going to do black and white all along so when I saw these I was sold. Ben is hoping I add a pop of color but so far I haven't found anything I am wanting to add so it is a pretty simple black and white room.

Here are some photos...enjoy! xoxo

Love these fun Minneapolis/St.Paul prints I got when Evangeline was born...check out her nursery here!

The cute pendants are from my baby shower.

Since the other kids are using the dresser and 2 closets in this room baby boy will use these 
black cloth boxes for his things.

Love these prints I found on Etsy!

Making Room for Baby

Now that we are home from our summer travels and ready to have baby #3 I am starting to nest...only 4 more weeks!  First up was getting Evangeline and Emmerich settled into their new room. We moved them into the playroom so things aren't completely different design wise but we did swap out the futon for bunk beds! The thing I am most excited about in their room is the darkening shades we hung a few days ago...we have definitely gotten an extra 45 minutes of sleep each morning...mom win!

Here are some pics of the room and the link to the Ikea bunk beds we used. Baby room pics coming soon! xoxo

Our Valentine Breakfast

Happy Valentine's Day! I always look for an excuse to celebrate/decorate and Valentine's day is always a good day to do that. Here are a few photos of our morning. xoxo

The table ready for the kids when they wake up.

They were so excited to get presents!

I got these felt envelopes in the dollar spot and filled them with so many little trinkets...
pencils, chocolates, stickers, Band-Aids etc...they were all a hit with a 2 and (almost) 4 year old:)

Heart shaped pancakes, grapefruit juice and strawberries to eat.

Emmerich and I in our jams.

She was pretty excited about her Frozen Band-Aids!

Charleston....with toddlers

Last week we went to Charleston for 4 days while Ben was still on Christmas break...we were lucky to get warm weather! Especially after being in chilly Minnesota for Christmas. Here are some photos and explanations of what we did, ate and saw...enjoy! xoxo (this is not sponsored by any of the activities we did...just showing you what we did:)

DAY 1:

We stayed just over the bridge from Charleston in beautiful Mt. Pleasant.

The vintage coffee cafe was definitely a favorite...so adorable...

and a fun vintage truck turned playground for the kids.

next stop was the beach..Sullivan's Island public beach was just a few miles from our hotel. This was definitely a toddler approved activity.

Dinner at the Hominy Grill was delicious and a good taste of Low Country food.

DAY 2:

Walked along Waterfront Park...fountains and big swings make for a perfect activity with kids. 
We found this little gem...Tom's Toys was a big hit...spent almost an hour in here building things with these blocks.
So many fun places to shop on King St.

And tacos at  Basico. 

DAY 3:

This morning started with a tour at the historic Boone Hall Plantation.

The kids loved walking through the gardens.

We had lunch and walked the Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant before heading back to Charleston 
for treats and coffee!

Isn't this shop adorable! And filled with cupcakes etc:)

Found this fun toy store on our walk...the Magnifilous Toy Emporium!

Then a mocha for momma at Kudu...while the kids threw coins in the fountain.

Ended the day with dinner at Butcher & Bee...in their beautiful new location.

Whipped feta, hummus, pitas and bacon wrapped dates!!

DAY 4: 

Before the 4 hour drive home we stopped at the Memorial Waterfront Park in Mt. Pleasant
 for the views and...

Fun play ground!

But we couldn't leave Charleston without getting a few donuts...

and a Jasmine tea.

Such a fun trip to the Holy City!
