Instagram DIY Project

My apartment is finally coming together. This weekend I gave it what it needed: a little TLC. My Pinterest projects have been piling up and I had the time to do them this weekend. At Michael’s this gold frame was half-off so I couldn’t resist picking it up. It goes so great with my mini-prints from SocialPrint.com.

After trying to figure out exactly how to secure the hemp string to the frame – I used a staple gun- which probably wasn’t the most logical solution. But it came out beautiful. If you are like me and have a ton of Instagram prints- print them out via SocialPrint.com. They come in quickly and are so cute.

hello fall!

The weather is so perfect in Florida right now! Every time I open up my Pinterest page it is filled with pictures of boots + scarves. I’m dreaming of the day when I can pull out my boots. 🙂 Apple sent the death email last night giving me the heads up that the good ol’ 2008 Mac Book had seen its last day. A part of me wants to throw a tantrum on the floor and beat myself up for not backing up the last few months of my life..but then again what would that accomplish? Exactly. Lessons learned.

Baby M (my little four-month old I nanny for) is having awful acid-reflux and colic symptoms. They have continued throughout the past couple weeks without any signs of improvement. He was put on Zantac, Nutramigen, and rice cereal. It has been a constant battle for him. Whether he will nap or not is the never-ending question. The good thing about all of this is that he will grow out of it..right? I was talking to a mom yesterday who had a son six-months old with the same symptoms as Mason and they have yet to let up. Two-more months!? Yikes!

To all the moms + nanny’s out there dealing with reflux babies- good luck!

Coffee Talk

I love Saturdays. I’ve been extremely lazy and drinking my coffee with a Reese Witherspoon chick flick. What could be better?Image

I’m also trying to pretend that when I go outside I can wear boots and a scarf. I’m so ready for cooler weather. I should have moved to another state..considering Florida doesn’t have a fall! 

This week has been hectic! My new little baby that I nanny for has tummy issues. He was born two months premature- I’m not sure how much that has to do with his little digestive system. He is on Alimentum and also takes a prescription for acid reflux. This week the mom started using Colic Calm. It is a natural form of gripe water to help relieve the symptoms of colic and reflux. Maybe it is something he will grow out of. If you ever have the chance to use Colic Calm- beware! It is a black liquid and stains most fabrics. He spits up the dose usually and it goes everywhere! Poor little guy 😦

Happy Saturday! Go Gators! 

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Sister!

It’s my sister’s birthday! Eek! I love Birthday’s. I’m huge on celebrations- and love making it special. The next few months are full of birthdays and I’m excited. But..the pressure is on to make them great. And to get the perfect presents. My sister is mother of two toddlers and working professional- she is a busy mom. I wanted to get her something that fit her lifestyle..Pinterest really helped me out.

Molly is life of the party. She keeps the crowd laughing and loves to tell stories. So I stumbled upon this book, My Quotable Kid, and it is absolutely a great fit for Molly. My niece and nephew are almost at the age where they are spatting out those priceless sayings. Now she’ll have a place to jot down the stories about those two. I hope she likes it!! Happy Birthday big sis! ❤

new places + faces

It’s almost the end of summer- well at least for some of you. Here in Florida, not so much. We have at least a couple more months of hot weather. Boo!

A lot has changed in the last couple of months. Moving to a new city. New job. New Apartment. Moved in with my boyfriend. It all happened so fast and blogging has been put on the back burner in the midst of all this madness. Good madness, but really it has been an adjustment. I’m a nanny for a new family and miss my niece and nephew so much. But who wouldn’t? I had a pretty good life nannying for those two! My new family has a lot to live up to. 🙂

But..change is always good!
