mommy outfit::take 1

I bought this all-stretch jersey dress for my changing "mommy" body! I ordered it last week & it came in yesterday! Yeah!

I know it looks big...I'm not happy about that either but that's where I'm headed!

DIY-moss terrarium!

So sorry this is a day late! I just finished the terrarium today so it doesn't looked "settled" yet!

With the excess amount of rain we had been receiving I thought it only appropriate to put all the new sprung moss to use!
Here's how I made my terrarium:

::choose your glass vessel, something with a top or lid
::fill the bottom with sand, less than 1"
::add a layer of Spanish moss
::add your soil, as high as you want your moss
~plant your moss on top [you should be able to either buy a variety or find some in the yard like I did!]

I would also suggest you add some rock[s] for the moss to grow on & maybe even some miniature people of plants for decoration!
I only had this decorative piece of rock that functions as both...

With a lid you should only need to water/mist your terrarium every couple weeks and give it some indirect sunlight.

Good luck!

Happy Monday! I'm off to work for now.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for a DIY post!


1st baby purchase...

I excitedly bought these a couple days ago, for the soon-to-be baby room. I can't wait!

Find more here...


I heart this onesie from Milalu!
A boy or girl could wear it, don't you think?


a VERY Merry Mishap...

[I actually took 3 of these!]

I really hesitated when I considered whether or not I should post this, but the truth is I'll want to start blogging baby gear and show the progress of our nursery, so here it is...


We found out about 3 weeks ago, very much to our surprise, since we were thinking we'd wait 2-3 more years! I'm headed to the doctor's today to get my 1st ultrasound...


home tour...

I tried desperately to find the home tour from the Feb. issue of Living online but it was nowhere! I had to share so I photographed pages from the magazine myself!

I just love the natural, organic elements like the mix of stained wood present in every room, soft neutral colors that work effortlessly with each other and eye-catching contrasts of shiny, smooth glass accents!

I also like how the entire house doesn't feel "feminized", it could work for a man or woman!

Keep checking the site to see if they upload this tour & hopefully include few bonus shots!
