Trendy Tot Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I am joining MeganKelly and Lindsey for Trendy Tot Tuesday! I have been meaning to join up with this link up for awhile but all the cute Valentine's Day fashion has really inspired me! I posted Patrick's Valentine's Day outfit yesterday from our playdate but thought I would post again because it's so darn cute! I also added a few fashion picks for little misters and misses! Dressing little ones for holidays is so fun!

Patricks shirt is from the Oh Sew Cute shop on Etsy here's a link. I have been so into the embroidered shirts lately I have an order for a St. Patricks Day as well as Easter (posts on those to come!)

Valentine's Day Playdate !

Happy Monday!

I am currently surrounded by tissues, medicine and ginger ale as the cold that swept our house finally caught up with me! I've said it once and I'll say it again being sick with a toddler is no joke. So there has been lots of movies and not so healthly lunches! 

But we had a super fun day Friday before the cold hit me ! I am so lucky to have had Patrick at the same time that lots of my other girlfriends also had children. These built in playgroups are the best! And I love that we get to watch the kids all grow up together (I'll do a little throw back photo comparison at the end of the post!)

We did a toddler friendly art project, literally could not have been easier. I cut out white hearts that the kids painted with water colors and then glued them to red construction paper! Came out cuter than expected!

Then we needed a little snack, found the cups at Target I just love them!

And like I said I have to do a comparison from last year to this year (We are missing one his mom is about to have another baby anyway!)

These two are the best Patrick and Miss Piper (isn't she a doll?!?!), her mom Kristin has been my best friend since early high school. I was lucky enough to be her maid of honor and she was one of my bridesmaids. The fact that we are now having playdates still blows my mind and makes me teary at the same time!

Also I finally got my chalkboard up on our kitchen wall in time for some Valentine's Day art! I'm already brainstorming designs for St. Patricks Day and Easter!

Five On Friday

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday!I’m linking up with DarciChristinaNatasha, and April for Five on Friday!

Pottery Barn Kids Valentine's Day gear is on sale! I am purchasing the mailbox and plates for next year. I have never been such an early shopper but we have been on a major budget crunch since buying the new house so I figure if I want to still be able to do all the cute, festive things I enjoy I have to find a way to make them much more budget friendly!

Baby Shower Planning!
Chris and I are expecting our niece in early April! Like how I say we're expecting lol I couldn't be more excited to meet this little girl and spoil her silly starting with her shower! It is Little Golden Book themed and I love how it is all coming together! My mother in law is one of the best party planners so I know it's going to be an amazing day. Here are some of my favorite details so far!

Patrick's Reading Nook
Now that downstairs is finally almost finished I am really starting to work on Patricks room. Part of me is so sad but I want it to be more of a big boy room. He has an amazing open closet area which I plan on turning into a reading/quiet area for him! I am going for an outdoorsy camper theme! Here are some of my ideas!

Playdates at the aquarium! One of my closest friends has been home on maternity leave with her second child. We have had so much fun spending time with her and her daughter, Patricks best buddy! We especially have been loving our local aquarium. The membership is basically two visit costs so we have been going a ton! Patrick can't get enough of the touch tank!

DIY of the weekend

This is my project for the weekend! Planning on using this Rifle Paper Co. paper and adding the project to my side bar/bar project!

Happy Friday Everyone!
