Gingerbread house 

How cute is my gingerbread house? Haha no I didn’t decorate it, and no, neither did Romy. My mom bought it for us from Gelsons. I had no idea they offered this, but doesn’t it make such a cute hostess gift? You can totally customize them however you would like. I’ll definitely keep this in mind from now on when I get invited to holiday parties. 


A little bit of Romy

I would never be one of those moms I said. My house will always be decorated how I please. Just because I have a kid doesn’t mean my style has to go out the window: 

Add that to the list of 101 things I said before I actually had a child and went back on. ( Gosh I sounded so stupid) 

So here my friends are the pictures I probably wouldn’t post on Instagram because that’s where you are supposed to only post the pretty. Here is a little bit of Romy’s decor sprinkled into our holiday home.

Tootsie floats from place to place all around our home while Romy sleeps. If she’s into it, we are into it
Guys, if you have a child it is all about the lights. Seriously, and her playhouse was no exception.
This little tree has been decorated and redecorated daily by Romy. The Minnie Mouse on top really sets it off.
When we bought this house I envisioned a traditional Christmas with lots of green wreaths and white lights. I know it’s hard to see, but that is Olaf in the right corner and Ana with snowflakes on the balcony. How did this happen??

Nesting: Family Room

If there was an award for craziest nester, I think I would get it.  We kind of got out of control the last few months before Romy was born. It was a good excuse to get everything done.  The biggest changes made to our family room was the flooring and window coverings.

As much as I loved my all white floors, they began to change colors near our windows. Our once white floors were now all shades of blue, white, and gray.  With that being said I decided to go with a tile that is made to look like wood. I went with a mid tone that had more of an ashy gray undertone than brown or tan.  I have to say I think I like this much more!

I love the open feeling I have downstairs especially with the giant bifold door, so I knew I didn’t want anything heavy on the windows. If I could I would have left them naked I would have.  These blinds from Blinds Galore ended up being the perfect solution.
