Loft Bed Room Makeover

We just celebrated Brady’s 6th birthday last week and decided to give him a “big kid” bed he’s been wanting. We have rapidly outgrown our townhome since having Catalina so we needed to free up some space in the kids’ room. His previous bed took up so much room and made the area feel cluttered and small. We designated a…

Freshly Picked Soft Sole Moccasin Dupes on Amazon

Who doesn’t love Freshly Picked soft sole moccasins?! I always thought they were adorable and couldn’t wait to put a pair on Catalina. But I honestly could not get myself to spend $60+ on a pair of shoes that she would grow out of quickly. I did some searching and found a ton of Freshly Picked dupes on Amazon! Babe…

Great Harvest Bread Co. Field Trip

One of my favorite things about North Carolina is how supportive everyone is of local businesses. Growing up in West Virginia I saw small businesses come and go within one month! People in my town did not support the people in their communities trying to build up new restaurants and stores. One of my former co-workers started a business with…

Family Photo Shoot at Renaissance Hotel

One of my favorite things about blogging is all of the fun experiences it has provided for me and my family!

The list could…

School Birthday Party Alternative

Brayden just started preschool this last fall and I am so glad that we chose the school that we did! He was so mad when I decided not to homeschool him, (mamma was not cut out for that)! He pouted about it for days. But after just one week at his school, he loved it! He loves his teachers, classmates,…

Breastfeeding Tips & Inspiration

I often hear so many stories about mothers getting discouraged when it comes to breastfeeding. There are also numerous articles talking about how difficult it is. As if there aren’t enough articles telling pregnant women and mothers to be afraid and unconfident. While breastfeeding isn’t exactly as Ali Wong described her expectations, “I thought it was supposed to be this…

Gift Ideas For Coffee Lovers

I’m admitting it, I’m one of those basic white chicks who act like loving coffee is a personality trait! But let’s be real, I don’t have a personality so let me pretend coffee is. Haha but in all seriousness, I’m obsessed with coffee, (in case you couldn’t tell by my blog name). It just makes me happy! A hot breakfast…

Fun Dishes For Kids & Babies

As an adult, it drives me crazy to have mismatching dishes! I like for all of my glasses to match, (Joel and I fight about him wanting to save every jar to drink out of). I also like for all of my plates and bowls to be the same color and shape. Kids dishes on the other hand are so…

Family Vlog | NC Museum of Natural Science

This past weekend, Joel and I took the kids out for a fun day in Raleigh North Carolina. We had a fun (and loud) family breakfast at ihop, or as Brayden calls it, “ihock“. I decided to make a short family vlog out of it! We went to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science in downtown Raleigh, then had…
