Peel and Stick Wallpaper, Love Vs. Design

When we first moved to our new house, I knew the downstairs fireplace was going to be special. It just needed a refresh. I’m happy to report that four panels of @lovevsdesign’s Custom color peel and stick removable wallpaper in the Magnolia Tree print did just the trick!

Holiday Cards, Basic Invite

I’d like to go on record that for the first time in the history of ever, our holiday cards were some of the very first on our friends’ fridges this year. We went with @basicinvite on the design and they rocked it!

Our Experience With Bright by Text

Who’s at the point in quarantine where they’re over scouring the internet for kid activities and reassurance right now? I mean, can someone just send it to us already?  Like, maybe directly to our phones? Please and thank you. Well, luckily now someone has. That’s why I’m happy to share our experience with Bright by Text, a free nonprofit program that hands out tools and tips to families with kiddos prenatal to age 8 via text messaging. We’ve been using the service for about a week, and we wanted to share our experience with it to help more people during social distancing and the Covid-19 crisis.

A Mother’s Day Gift Roundup That’s Fun For Any Mom

It’s time to pamper, relax and sip – because here’s our Mother’s Day Gift Roundup from our friends at BabbleBoxx. In fact, they’re encouraging families to celebrate Mother’s Day all month long (no complaints here!).
Either way, it’s time to pamper, relax and sip – because here’s our Mother’s Day Gift Roundup!

Lowes #BuildThanks for Frontline Heroes Project

Lowes invited us to show some LOVE for the frontline this weekend by staying home and taking part in the nationwide Lowes #BuildThanks for Frontline Heroes Project. The idea is to craft homemade thank-you signs for your windows, doors and yards so essential workers can see them from the street to make their commute to and from work a little brighter.

Home-based Learning With The Wisdom Wonder Project

We got out of the house today for a nature walk (solo, around the neighborhood) in a new collab with the SLO-based The Wisdom Wonder Project. This company offers easy to follow, home-based learning curriculums for kiddos. (And to think I had partnered with them before all this Covid-19 quarantine crazy went down.) Read on to learn how we incorporated a simple story in Aesop’s Fables into a nature walk. And how you can, too.

SocialMama: Making Mom Friends During Covid-19

COVID-19. Quarantine. Being stuck inside your house with kids. Worry. Sickness. That on top of all the other mom stuff. It’s been a hard week, friends.

It’s times like these that we can use all the friends we can get.

Enter: SocialMama, an app that launched last year for moms looking for mom friends in their city and beyond.
