Maternity Photos for Baby #3

Hi friends! So we decided {rather last minute in fact} to get some maternity photos taken for our sweet baby #3. I love maternity photos! But life with two kiddos and being pregnant just doesn't allow for a lot of extra time... so I was on the fence about getting photos taken. Mostly because I wasn't sure we could fit it into our crazy fall schedules, needless to say, I'm SO happy we had these sweet moments captured! If there's one thing that stands true:: always take the pictures! You can never get these precious moments back. As always, our family loves Tara Long Photography here in Springfield, IL. Tara is just the sweetest human being. She's so wonderful to work with! She has truly been

The Kiddos Playroom: Basement Edition with Orian Rugs

Hi friends! I have been meaning to share an update on our basement {most importantly the kiddos playroom} since we started the process of finishing it, but my goodness has time gotten away from me! These last few months of pregnancy mixed with the end of summer/back to school fun has been a whirlwind... but nonetheless, I wanted to share a little bit about the kids' space in our basement. It's not completely finished, but the kids love this cozy corner and I'm loving how it's coming together. I still have SO much to do when it comes to organizing, hanging pictures, and adding all of the final touches to this space. I have so many ideas for this cozy little space in our basement, but life wit

Spooky Treats for the Littles

Hi friends! Happy Monday! I've been trying to squeeze in some fun little Halloween activities with the kiddos before our sweet baby arrives {oh so soon!}. I wanted to share these really easy and simple spooky treats with you. My kiddos loved this activity, and it was a major win because I already had everything sitting in my pantry for me to grab! My littles always wake up from nap time requesting a snack... Do yours do that too?! So today I thought would be the perfect fall day to decorate some spooky little treats after naps... We made Oreo cookie spiders and peanut butter apple teeth. Nothing crazy or fancy, just so fun and adorable! Snacks:: I cut up a few apples, got out the peanut butt

Easy Fall Apple + Cheese Board

Hi friends! If there's one thing you should know about me, then you should know that I'm all about a tasty little cheese board... What's not to love about mixing your favorite cheeses with some tasty treats?! I'm all about snacks, especially festive ones! I love putting together simple and easy apple and cheese boards for my family... my kiddos and husband have been LOVING these festive fall ones as of lately! It's the perfect go-to snack/treat because everyone loves something on the board... I mostly enjoy making these types of snacks because they are pretty effortless to put together, yet they look like you've spent all of the time in the world on them. Major win in my book, especially for

Fall Activities for Little Ones

Hi friends! Happy October! I love everythingggg about this sweet season of fall... The pumpkins, the weather, {it also happens to be my birthday month}, plus we will be adding another little pumpkin to our patch this month {baby #3!}... I just LOVE October. So naturally, my little ones are becoming obsessed with the fun and festive fall spirit {just like their mama}... I thought it would be fun to compile a little list of some ideas I've seen floating around online, plus a few fun activities my husband and I like to do with our kiddos come this time of year. There's so many different fall activities and crafts for little ones that are simple and very inexpensive. I'll try and add to this lis
