I just got my maternity photos back and couldn't be more in LOVE!
P was not having it this day, but the ever so talented Stephanie Ryan worked her magic and captured some priceless moments.
I will cherish these photos forever, as this has been such a tender time going from one baby to two.
I am an introvert through and through and have really struggled with having people over. I jump all over the idea when people invite us into their homes, but have not been so gracious to return the favor. Tyson has really pushed me to get over my insecurities and have some friends over. After being cooped up in the house all last week, due to P being sick, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and have some friends over. We had two play dates! This is HUGE in my book. Sounds so simple, but really it's true. I am so happy that my friends came by and brought their darling kids. P had so much fun and even shared.... a little. It was so refreshing to be able to have an adult conversation, all while enjoying the babes playing together.
^^^ These two were obsessed with the basket. It's the little things, I tell ya. ^^^

Since the lovely world of Pinterest has been around, I have been daydreaming of having a white kitchen. The past two homes we have lived in have had dark cabinets and dark granite. I was ready for something new and crisp, bright and aery. The white subway tile sealed the deal for me.
Here is a peek into our kitchen. As the rest of the house comes along, I will be sure to post pics.
^^^ Can I just tell you how obsessed I have become with anything and everything Rifle Paper Co. ^^^
^^^ Made good use of my DIY chalkboard.^^^
^^^ This little girl has a thing for telephones. ^^^
^^^ My favorite drying rack for bottles and sippy cups. ^^^
^^^ Gotta have a stash of candy available at all times. As well as the yummiest candle that was a house warming gift from my sister-in-law. ^^^
^^^ My favorite owl cookie jar, from my mother-in-law. ^^^
^^^ Our itty bitty mudroom, with my mom's old deacons bench. It was a joy to paint, let me tell you what. ^^^
^^^ I love the light fixtures we added for a little flare. ^^^
^^^ Gigi modeling our floor. Whoever invented tile that looks like wood is genius, less expensive and less upkeep. Win/win in my book! ^^^
^^^ Daddy came home from work mid photo shoot. ^^^
