Well, we finally got around to finishing Emma’s nursery now that she’s 6 months old! This room is definitely one of our favorites, probably because it’s usually the cleanest. I still remember unpacking(or watching Aaron unpack) all of the boxes of furniture like it was yesterday and I’ll never forget the huge hormone induced meltdown I had over ordering the wrong size shag rug for this room(pregnancy brain?). Aaron was such a champ helping me lug it out into the living room to see if it would look good there and then helping me lug it back to this room and lay it back down under the big furniture pieces. Poor guy. Needless to say, I’m glad this room is finished and I love how it turned out! We went with all white furniture(I’m sure I’ll regret that later) and added grey and muted pinks throughout. It helped that the room was already a pretty grey color and we did a cute lamb theme with her mobile and toys. I was pretty specific with colors here, I have never been overly girly so I wanted to keep this as close to neutral as I could while still being feminine. I also wanted to be able to reuse pieces for our next kiddo.

One of my favorite pieces in this room are these little art prints from The Animal Print Shop. Aaron and I had so much fun picking out the different baby animals for her room and it was hard to keep it down to 6 for this grid!

At my baby shower we asked everyone to bring a book in lieu of a card and it was so awesome being able to fill all of her bookshelves up with books from our friends and family. I love that.

I love this rainbow print from my friend Katie’s shop, Odd Daughter Paper. It’s perfect for this room! All of her illustrations are my favorite.

One benefit of being pregnant over the holidays was all of the deals we scored during Black Friday. Almost all of our purchased furniture pieces we got at a huge discount which was amazing. Definitely recommend doing it that way if you can!

Emma is 5 months old tomorrow and I’m wondering where the heck the time has gone. I say this every week but it’s insane just how fast time is going with her. She’s been babbling so much, getting super SUPER excited when she sees Riot walk by(it’s hilarious), grabbing at her feet nonstop and drooling so much you’d think she had a waterfall coming out of her mouth. It’s such a crazy and amazing time in life right now and I’m trying to capture every moment so I don’t forget them. I’m obsessed with her.

This True & Co true body scoop neck bra – Feels kind of weird for me to talk about bras on here but this bra is pretty amazing. I love how light weight and fitted to your body it is plus it’s so buttery smooth! It’s not a nursing bra by any means but it’s pretty easy to nurse in which is a huge bonus. I feel like I’ve had the hardest time finding cute nursing friendly bras/dresses but this bra is a favorite of mine for sure. You can also use my link here to get $15 off your first purchase which is a pretty good deal!

Just Add Water tumbler – I talked about this in another post but this cup is finally available for pre order! Snag it quick because they sell out pretty fast. I love mine and I really feel like it helps me stay hydrated during the day. Plus it’s pretty cute!

Coffee + Crumbs podcast – I’ve been obsessed with this podcast lately. Specifically this episode where they talk birth stories. I love being able to relate to other mamas and hear their stories. This episode is another good one!

Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel seasoning – Obsessed. I’ve been on a kick of eating avocado toast with slices of boiled egg, tapatio and this seasoning on top every morning. The ingredients are pretty simple and I’m a huge fan of garlic and onion so this adds just the right taste to my morning breakfast.

Molly’s guest bathroom reveal – Molly has such great taste I love all of the updates her and her husband have been making to their home. Their backyard has been a huge inspiration for Aaron and I as we update ours. I love what they did with their guest bathroom and that she shared how she saved on costs for it.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – I’ve seen a lot of posts about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale so in lieu of doing my own post I thought I’d quickly share some of my favorites that I’m seeing on their site! I’m going to run down there this weekend in hopes that they still have a lot of good finds. Will report back but in the meantime here are some favorites that caught my eye:

FOR HER:
These zella leggings are an all time fave of mine, this color is cute too / These Good American jeans / Denim shirt dress / This Free People top / Madewell leather tote! / This face mask is amazing

HOME:
This rug / This two tone basket / This grey accent pillow / This herringbone rug is super cute / This throw blanket / This marble and wood serving board

BABY:
This carseat cover and swaddling blankets and in this white + grey duo too / Baby food maker / Nursing scarf / Skip Hop activity gym / This looks so comfortable can they please make this for adults??? / These bows

Over the weekend we ventured out to Coronado Island for a walk along the beach to watch the sunset. I love living so close to the beach. Coronado is one of our favorite beaches here in San Diego because of how clean and quiet it is. There’s a dog beach on one end that we used to take Molli to all the time and on the other end is Hotel Del Coronado, they usually have an event going on over there or some really cool sand castles. It’s a prime people watching location. ;)

We just got this muslin carseat cover from Bebe au Lait as part of their collab with Sofie la Girafe and I love using it to cover Emma up when we’re out and about. I really like how easy it is to zip up and close and the simple snap-on install!


I am dying over these sunglasses we got for Emma. I was so surprised she actually kept them on for most of the trip out, too!

Also, how cute is this jumpsuit? I’m obsessed. I bought it last year from Madewell right before I got pregnant so I couldn’t wear it that long and now I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe because I can fit into my old clothes again! Super last minute I threw this shirt on from Lou and Grey under it and I think it goes pretty well. Definitely not ideal for breastfeeding so I had to pump before we went out but I’m that much closer to feeling like my normal self again.

I’m so excited to start a new series here on the blog showcasing outfits for my little mini. Now that it’s starting to warm up I’ve been picking through all of Emma’s clothes and storing away everything that she’s outgrown or that it’s too hot for. We don’t really have a lot of clothes for her outside of a handful of basic onesies and some dresses so here are some outfits I’m eyeing for our little lady for the summertime! I get so excited shopping for her, I can’t help myself. Also, I’m totally a sucker for stripes and polka dots for myself and clearly for my daughter ;)

Aren’t those swims suits freaking adorable? I love the ice cream cone haha I wish they made that in adult sizes!
