A nature inspired nursery features our “Build a Tree” wall decal and some other adorable items that Mom Samantha found on Etsy. I love the white furniture against the light blue walls. The greens and blues are working so very well. My favorite accessory is the little Train Name covered on a leaves and birds pattern. The custom change pad cover from Raspberry Kisses has a very soft design that works really well with the Robin Motif crib bedding from Dwell Studio. The wall that features the Trendy Peas fabric decal has a cute white book shelve with owl bookends by April Foss. Thank you so much Samantha for sending me these pictures. I love that Trendy Peas is a part of this modern nature-theme room. 1- Crib bedding is the Robin Motif By Dwell Studio 2- Name Train by Sweety Baby 3- Custom Change Pad Cover from Raspberry Kisses 4- Baby Blocks by Hello Baby Store 5- Owl Book Ends by April Foss 6- Fabric wall decal by Trendy Peas

While searching for some furniture for Bela’s room I came across some great kids' seating. There are tons of modern options out there. Here are some of my favorites. 1- P'kolino little one's table & chair set. I think I might get this one. It sells for $139 here. 2- By Boom Group, this modern chair in the color “poppy” is adorable. 3- eThe Monte Cubino chair, a very stylish soft and cushy seating. 4- This fun and creative little stool made from recycled skateboard is a great find from the etsy store Board Games. 5- Kid friendly foam chairs by OFFI. Available in many colors and also as little stools.

Being miles, and miles, and miles away from my mom is so hard. Sometimes, it is not fun at all. There is always so much to share, so much to thank her for, and so much to learn from her. This past weekend my sisters and I went to Corolla, NC with our families. It was a total of 9 adults and 7 screaming, happy, healthy kids. If my mom were there this past weekend, she would have gone to the beach with us to collect seashells and play in the sand. She would have flown dinosaur kites with the kids and help them untangled the kites to stop the crying. She would have watched them run on the beach only on their underwear while chasing little crabs. If my mom were there, she would have heard the laughter when we played in the pool and appreciated the silent when everyone was taking a nap. She would have enjoyed watching the grandchildren having the time of their life with delicious chocolate ice cream. There were so many precious moments this past weekend that I really wished that my mom and dad could have enjoyed with my family and I. They will read this post and look at the pictures and then, they too, will wish they had been with us this past weekend. Mom, I hope you had a blessed Mother's Day. We love you and miss you dearly. I wish a special blessed day for all the moms out there that could not spend Mother's Day with their daughters and sons.

For some reason my kids decided that they don’t need to listen to me this week. They don’t want to eat dinner, or brush their teeth, or take a bath. I think May is trying to tell me that it is going to be a challenging month. Or maybe they think we are still at Busch Gardens. We did have a lot of fun at Busch Gardens last Sunday, but now we are back to our routine. Well, at least I am. They are still running wild, searching for Elmo, asking for cotton candy, and looking for new rides to go to. Why do we get old so quick? Why do we stress constantly about big and small things? So, while I am stressing out because Marcus is running naked around the house holding a broom while I try to put his diapers on him, he is having a blast running from the “Monster Mom” with his sword. Bela then decides to run out the front door to play with a stray dog that appeared in our front yard. She says to me then, that the dog she just met is her best friend. Maybe she thought it was Elmo. Who knows? They are kids. They are having fun. Leave the stress to mom, right? Oh Bela and Marcus, don't ever slow down for me, I am nuts about you two!
