The sisters are growing up to be sassy little opinionated ladies. They say please and thank you, but not without an eye roll… no joke. They love to ‘help’ with everything. I’m happy to hand over the laundry to them. They sort all our clothes into darks, lights, and brights. They fill the washer, and let me know when it’s ready for soap. Then when the wash cycle is done, the switch all the laundry to the dryer and repeat. It’s glorious.
Their other favorite thing is painting… I wonder where they get that from? At least once a day, I spread out the vinyl table cloth, roll up their sleeves and hand them some chip brushes, washable paint, and paper. They could sit for hours and paint.
They’re getting more compliant when it comes to obeying, and we haven’t had anymore 4-hour time-outs recently. However this hilarious flowchart rings so true for this lovely age of 2 1/2.
It occurred to me that’s it’s been awhile since we’ve done a camera-dump of the girls!
We just love these little girls to pieces, and are soaking up this adorable stage they’re in.
Hey buddy! Good morning! Soooo OK. This month, the good people of Lowe’s challenged us (and all the other Lowes Creators) to make something awesome using the Pantone Color of the year... which happens to be Radiant Orchid. Let me begin by saying I LOVE ORCHIDS. But come now. Purple? Well imagine my surprise when I found out that ‘Radiant Orchid’ actually translates to this very enthusiastic shade of pink. Silly SILLY me! Obviously they were talking about the little flourish-y thing … [Read More...]
Hey everybody! It’s Meghan from Cupcakes with Sprinkles! Its March and with my kids I feel like I need to celebrate every holiday. We never really celebrated St. Patrick's Day when I was young other than my brothers pinching us if we didn't wear green. So we are having green foods all month cause how often do you get to eat green food. I mean really, it sounds gross. But this isn't! This popcorn is sweet, tangy, and I mean, my kids will eat anything that looks like candy. Here we go! These … [Read More...]
We’ve been getting a lot of emails lately requesting a round-up post of our must-have DIY tools. You know... what we use, what we like. I’ve been putting off writing it for awhile, because it’s so daunting thinking about putting together a list... we use SO MANY tools and products. How do I just choose a handful? source Nick and I sat down together and made a list of things we deem essential to our day-to-day DIY adventures. We have a LOT more items that we use fairly regularly... so if you … [Read More...]
Remember how we tore out our stand-up shower with plans to make our giant downstairs bathroom into a dreamy laundry room? This project has been frustrating for me, because there’s not a lot I can do to help... and it seems like nothing is getting done. But the truth is that A LOT is getting done. It’s just not the pretty stuff. Check out all this wiring and plumbing. WOOF. My husband's bag-o-skillz never fail to surprise me. It turns out that a LOT goes into moving a washer and … [Read More...]
I definitely think there’s a connection between a creative personalities and hoarding tendencies. I mean, obviously there are different levels of hoarding, and some are downright unhealthy. I’m not collecting empty pizza boxes, all I’m trying to say is that... I SAVE STUFF for one of two reasons: It’s sentimental I’m going to use it someday. For SOMETHING And I’m here to tell you that I always end up using things that I save. It just may take a few years for me to find the … [Read More...]
If the topics that I blogged about were what was actually pressing on my heart, I’d be talking a lot more about the baby-fever I’ve been experiencing. I’m careful not to go into it too often, because I try not to get too deep on you with any frequency. And I want to be sensitive to my ‘fertility friends’. We’ve been keeping our readers up to date on the status of our ‘baby fund’ on Facebook and Instagram, but I’m realizing that many of our readers are new enough that they aren’t familiar with … [Read More...]
Our blind date was scheduled for a Wednesday. The thing is, I had to study for a big test the next day for one of my design classes... and I was super responsible back in those days. So I decided to reschedule for the next day. After all, we were only going to grab a cup of coffee and have awkward conversation. He agreed to reschedule, not even bothering to mention that the ‘next day’ was Valentine’s day. He really thought I was manipulating him into having a Valentine’s date! So he … [Read More...]
Good Tuesday to you! How’s your eternal winter treating you? Did you catch that Frozen reference? I think when I posted about our epic comforter fail in our bedroom, it reminded me how neglected that room has been since then... and I’ve found myself adding little things to warm it up! We had this foam-core print of the girls from their newborn photoshoot with the fabulous Molly Long, and have had intentions of framing it and putting it in our bedroom for quite some time now. So last … [Read More...]
A lovely reader asked a very valid question recently, and we decided to answer... and bare it all. Here’s her inquiry. What do you do to stay motivated in the the middle of a project? I have begun and I am nearly at the end of redoing these book shelves and have not completed it! It drives me nuts! Any advice on getting started again? I think picking the final paint color is mentally blocking me! ~Gina K first of all... I think it’s just human nature to get in the middle of … [Read More...]
