Pink and Gray Nursery

This is Grace's very first bedroom. Painstakingly painted in two colors (Sherwin William Impatiens Petal for the pink and Uncertain Gray) by her loving parent's to be (well, that's what we were at the time) and decorated with tender loving care. See that faint bird cage in the back corner? That was our first ever decal experience. Take a look at the framed Grace over the crib - fabric, wooden letters and glue guns at 38 weeks pregnant. The adorable pink checkered rug? An Ikea find that we found about a week before Grace arrived. 
Now that we've sold our house, we're so happy that we have plenty of pictures to show Grace her old room. I have a feeling her new room when we find a house will be even more spectacular. Her Auntie is an Interior Designer after all (ok ok Interior Architect).

A few stretches here because after a year and a half I couldn't still find everything!

Lasting Summer Memories

Where did summer go! Personally, we had so much fun seeing summer through the eyes of our toddler. It was a summer of firsts for Grace and luckily we have the photos to remember them by!






The folks at Gymboree want you to join them in celebrating and sharing cherished moments in childhood. Gymboree has created an amazing new video to help kick off this campaign and I am thrilled to share it with you. This video is truly touching and must be watched by all parents. So watch and enjoy, then share your favorite cherished childhood moments in the comments! Be sure to use the hashtag #cherishchildhood when commenting or if you share this video with friends! Without further ado, I present to you "Today we've got to play!" sponsored by Gymboree:

Fall Shopping Bug: Start with Leggings

Now that we've settled into our new (temporary) home, I must admit. I have the Fall Shopping Bug.

Until now, temps have been swinging wildly from one extreme to the other but it just might be time to switch Grace to more crisp weather attire. (yay!) Also exciting? Her baby Uggs from the winter still fit!



My first fashion focus? Leggings. Grace's little legs are much longer than they were in the Spring so I need to stock up. Right now, Crazy 8 is even having a $10 sale!

Guest Post: Grace's New Home

Since we're right in the middle of moving madness, I've asked Grace's Auntie J to tackle another guest post for us!
Photo: After selling our house in 3 quick days and closing in 30 HECTIC days we are officially back in Rhode Island! And to preemptively answer your questions, 1.) no we haven't found another house yet. 2.) Yes, we'll be looking in South County starting in October with the help of our super agent Matthew Patty. 3.) Yes, thanks to the awesomeness of my family there are now 4 generations under one roof. 4.) And finally, you'll probably find Matthew Carrier at the Mews to escape this insanity :) Wish us luck!

Here it is! Please take a look and tell me what you think of her picks for Grace's new home :)
