    Christmas in July with The Mulberry Tree

    This post was sponsored by The Mulberry Tree. All opinions are my own based on my experience with the company, service, and products.

    Every Fourth of July week, my family heads up to our mountain home in North Carolina for some time together and a break from the Florida heat. This year was no different, and we were actually able to get nine days away to relax, play in the woods, shop some of our favorite boutiques, and celebrate the fourth as a family.

    Every year we consider participating in the Country Club’s golf cart parade, where everyone decorates their golf cart and parades through the neighborhood throwing candy and necklaces, but we just never seem to get our act together. However, we did manage to celebrate the holiday with our matching pjs from The Mulberry Tree.

    From the time Juliet was born, pjs have been one of my favorite things to buy. Baby and toddler pjs are just too cute. And if you follow my Instagram, you also know that I like to match with my girls on occasion a lot. So matching my girls, in our pjs, is just the best of both worlds.

    We had so much fun playing and lounging around the house in our pjs, and I just loved that each set was unique in it’s fabric and monogram.

    The Mulberry Tree also specializes in party decor, garland, and banners, and the girls loved playing with their Fourth of July garland all over the house!

    We order matching Christmas pjs every year, and last year we ordered from a different company that had sent us a catalogue in the mail. When we received the pajamas, I was sent the correct sizes in the tops, but two size 2t bottoms. Anniston was only 9 months old and there was absolutely no way we could make them work. I was so disappointed with the error the company had made, and because it was so close to Christmas, there was nothing we could do.

    This year, I will not let that happen again. The customer service at The Mulberry Tree is amazing, and they were even willing to make Juliet’s pants to her exact leg length to make sure they fit her! I look forward to getting our matching Christmas pjs this year! I know it is only July, but is it really ever too soon to start shopping for Christmas?

    5 Beach Must-Haves with a Toddler

    Okay. If you follow me on Instagram, or have seen any of my Instagram stories, you know that I live at either the beach or the splash pad. We are there at least a couple of times a week, and I’ve pretty much got the whole beach-with-toddlers-thing down to a science.

    The more we go, the more I perfect my packing list for the already heavy bag that I am going to have to carry along with my two girls. So, as we prepare for summer, and for two week-long beach vacations we have planned, I have picked up a few new favorite things to make those beach days a little easier.

    A Baby Shower for Flynn and My Favorite Go-To Shower Gifts

    Last Sunday we celebrated my sister, and the baby girl she is going to have in the next few weeks. As one of four girls, with two girls of my own, I could not be more excited to welcome another a little girl into the family. I honestly don’t know what we all would do if one of us had a boy. Girls are our thing.

    However, party planning is not my thing. I wish I was good at it, and sometimes I try really hard, but I just wasn’t born with that gene. Read more…


    A Day at the Park and PinkBlush Giveaway

    Another day, another showing.

    It has been over a month now of at least 3 or 4 showings a week. If you add that up, that is over 16 times that I have had to grab the girls, leave the house, and come up with some sort of fun activity for us to do for an hour. We’ve tried Barnes and Noble, Chick-fil-a, Starbucks, Target, Best Buy… so this time, we went to the park.

    The weather has finally cooled down a little, so we all grabbed our sweaters and spent the next hour rolling around in the grass.


    I have been waiting too long for sweater weather and I was so excited to finally wear this cowl neck sweater from PinkBlush. It was also the first time the girls got to wear their matching cardigans, and a good monogram can cure all my house has not sold yet blues.

    Juliet had such a great time looking for leaves and rocks, and she got so excited every time the wind picked up. We even spent a little time watching a man doing yoga, and Juliet has now mastered her downward dog.

    So, while I continue making lists of different things to do with the girls for an hour, you should take a minute to enter this awesome giveaway.

    I have partnered with PinkBlush to give one lucky reader a $75 gift card to ShopPinkBlush! All you have to do is follow both myself and PinkBlush on Instagram, like the current post, and tag two friends that would be interested in the gift card as well! For an extra entry, comment below with a place I can take the girls for our next showing tomorrow – please.

    PinkBlush has great basics and such cute maternity clothes, so tag all of those mommas-to-be you know!

    I will announce the winner Thursday on here and Instagram!
