Give me all the pink accessories, cheesy screen print t-shirts referring to #momlife + #allthecoffee, and comfy skirts. I will take them. Please also actually deliver all of the coffee to me! Side note: You don’t have to be a Mom to enjoy these things. I was definitely this nerdy long before I became one.

I can totally believe that. As we’re approaching Landon’s 2nd Birthday, less than a month away, I am reflecting a lot on the past year with him. It has been a crazy two years full of so many wonderful days. Nate and I have felt every emotion imaginable as the parents of this perfect little boy. We are so blessed to have him and call him ours.

Or at the very least, I can order the letters to make the one I have say “TWO” and update the photos. Haha! This one is hanging up in Landon’s room right now and I just love how it looks in there! Their decorations made our party, along with the cake that my super talented Sister-in-law made and the delicious Super Why! cookies that Baked By The Dozen whipped up for us! The custom banner, table runner, cupcake toppers, and wrapping paper all came from Minted.com. Again – ONE was a big deal to me! We even painted our kitchen turquoise to match!!! …. Just kidding! 😉 That was just an ‘oops’ and a bonus when we realized!…

There is so much I want to do in that space but I am trying to pace myself because, you know, that little thing called a budget! I decided that the easiest and first things I wanted to update were bedding and paint. Well, I came across this beautiful VCNY Monica Turquoise Comforter Set and I just had to have it. We had our previous comforter set for around 5 years and it was time for an update! Naturally, I gravitated toward turquoise….

The nonstick surface has been peeling off and we all know that it’s not exactly healthy to eat pieces of your pan along with your food! When I found these GreenLife pots and pans, I knew I had to have them! They had great reviews, they match my turquoise house and kitchen decor perfectly, AND they were the right price at only $79 for the whole set. See my unboxing video …..
