Happy FRIDAYYYYY!

A BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mama’s out there. I hope you get to rest + relax at some point this weekend. I hope you get the day off from wiping butts. Maybe even brunch withOUT the rugrats. Or breakfast in bed? Preferably take-out so your kitchen isn’t f’ed up. A special handmade card from school. Oh and how about one of those macaroni noodle necklaces? Yes, I hope you get one of those too! And maybe a homemade coupon book? Filled with “leave me alone” vouchers. Ha! Whatever you do, have a good one! Cheers!

Weekend plans? You guys, I’m a free woman. Well, kinda. More like my calendar is free AF! Meeting some of my girlfriends for happy hour tonight. A little shopping tomorrow. Followed with a Mother’s Day spa date at Cache Creek Casino. Sunday we’re doing the Capay Garden Tour. Never done it before, but I keep hearing great things. I’m looking forward to a weekend of family + friends + cheers!

Now let’s chat about steps….baby steps. We’ve slowly been making an effort to be less wasteful and reduce our plastic waste. Today I’m sharing some of the simple changes we’ve made in our home. I know that even the small part I play can actually make a difference

{how to make a grazing board}

Serving Platter | Bunny Bowl 

The grazing board. AKA Charcuterie Platter. Incase you haven’t noticed, they’re kinda my thang. Today I’m sharing my Easter candy board along with two other boards I created. A Char-Kid-Erie Board and an Adult cheese board. But this Easter board just might be one of my faves so far. All the things kids love….which keep their grubby little fingers of the fancy cheese (which we all know they don’t even like anyway) lol!

Scroll down and I’ve shared each item that I used on this Easter Board. You can add to your Target order and pick-up within 1 hour. All the goodies (minus the platter + bunny bowl) rang in under $10.

{bay’s bedroom makeover}

IMG_3807

It’s Friday.  Halle-fuckin-lujah!  I ALWAYS share 5 things on my mind, but today I’m just flat-out too damn tired.  I couldn’t even fake it if I tried.  Did this week kick anyone else’s ass, like it did mine?

So, let’s just chat about this pretty room my Mom, Cory and I spruced up for the birthday girl instead……

I have to apologize in advance for the terrible pictures.  We have really bad lighting and it’s pretty much impossible to get a good shot morning, noon or night.  I did my best with the help of lots of filters.

Before:

This headboard is actually Bay’s baby crib.  That was then converted to a toddler bed.  And now a full size bed.  We did remove the foot board in order to free up more room.  I didn’t realize how much room it took up before.  Then I did the unthinkable.  I thew it away…..the foot board.  I’ve been packing around all the pieces for the crib + toddler bed conversion for….12 years!  Remember this time last year when we moved?  My moto – just throw it away.  So that’s exactly what we did.  The thought gave be massive anxiety, to be completely honest.  The real question – why in the hell was I packing it around anyway?  I guess because it came from Goore’s Baby store.  And I saw the price tag.  That shit wasn’t cheap.  And that, my friends, is why it’s still around.  I don’t foresee ever buying different bedroom furniture for Bay.

Oh, and she reminded me that she’ll be moving out in 6 years anyway.   Thanks for the friendly reminder boo!!!
