Christmastime

It’s here, it’s here! We are smack dab in the middle of the season and the countdown is ON! It’s the first Christmas at our new home, so it was fun unpacking all of our Christmas bins and sprucing up our home for the first time. It actually inspired me to finally hang things on the walls and I turned the built-in bar (that we don’t use) into a hot coco bar (which Madelyn now uses daily). It’s been a process, though. My kids were sick after Thanksgiving and so I could only do things here and there, but it got done and we even did some gingerbread house building, orange drying and marshmallow making in the last few weeks. Decorating for Christmas has been one of my favorite things since I was a little girl and I’m constantly looking for inspiration on Pinterest. It’s so fun! I also finally got my little tree in a basket this year. I was so giddy about that! This season creeps up on us so quickly and I’m trying to savor every moment! Merry, merry Christmas!

 

 

beddy’s zipper bedding + the girls’ new room

We moved to our new house a little over two months ago and I’ve been working hard on getting this and that into its place at our new place. The first rooms I really had “done” are the kids’ rooms. I always like having their space put together, I think it makes our daily routine much easier, so I focused there first. When I was getting the girls’ new space ready for them, I was really, really excited to use Beddy’s for their bedding. First and foremost – the bedding zips, so there are no fitted sheets, flat sheets, comforters, duvets, or blankets to fold or adjust or tuck, etc. – you get the idea. It’s all-in-one, similar to a sleeping bag, but it fits over your mattress and it’s so soft and cozy on the inside. It’s pretty much the most genius idea when it comes to bedding, especially for children! My six year old AND my two year old can literally make their beds now. Sign me up, right?!? I’m always excited for anything that makes tidying up a bit easier!
