Creating the Perfect Nursery

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Creating a nursery is so much fun, but no matter how prepared you feel, it’s hard knowing where to start. When I was creating Brady’s nursery, I had no idea where to start. There are so many things that you are supposed to buy, so many things that you are supposed to do, and it can be very overwhelming. If you are in the same boat when it comes to creating a nursery for your bundle of joy that is on the way, keep reading. Here are a few ways that you can create a special and perfect nursery for your bundle:

Consider Your Space

First of all, you absolutely need to consider your space. What do you have room for? When it comes to creating a nursery (especially if it is your first one), it is very important to crawl before you can walk, no pun intended. Make sure you are not getting too carried away with all of the crazy things that you see on Pinterest and instead, focus on what is practical and what you can fit in your space.

The first thing you need to consider, like I mentioned, is the amount of available space that you have. You do not want the room to look too cluttered, so you might have to cut back on some of the non-essentials and only choose essential items, such as a crib, a recliner or rocker, and a dresser/changing table.

My favorite way to help yourself out with this process is by creating a tentative floor plan. Draw a rough outline of the room and then pencil in each piece of furniture. Of course, sizing will probably be off, but this gives you a great start before you actually take the time to measure.

However, you do not have to consider your space if you are moving, which a lot of couples choose to do when finding out that they are having a baby. If this sounds like your situation, make sure that you are making sure that the home works for you now and in the future, as well. So, look at the nursery size, consider the number of bathrooms and what is in the bathrooms (is the tub safe, etc.), will the home have a playroom, etc. Tell your real estate agent that you are expecting and need a home that is safe for your baby-to-be. The reason why you need to be so specific with your wants and needs is because “purchasing a property is most likely the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are an experienced buyer, this decision must be made carefully,” according to Erin King with Jax Historic Realty. “Erin, who previously worked in financial services and holds an MBA with an economics focus, brings a deep understanding of buying and selling historic homes. He enjoys sharing that knowledge with clients, from how to fit a 21st century lifestyle into a historic home and where to seek financing for renovation with a home purchase, to accurately pricing homes in Historic Districts such as Riverside, Avondale, Ortega, Springfield, Murray Hill, and San Marco. Erin, who prides himself on close attention to detail and quick response to clients, has put together a support team of contractors and other professionals who help transactions go smoothly.” So, no matter if you are looking for old homes for sale in San Marco, or a new build, talk with Erin, or your personal real estate agent to make sure that you are getting what you need for your growing family.

Choose A Color Palette

Next up: choose a color palette! This is a really fun part. Do you know that you are having a girl? Maybe you will go with a blush pink color, or periwinkle blue with a hint of purple in it. If you are having a boy, consider a gorgeous light blue color, or maybe an emerald green accent wall. There are so many colors to choose from and this just makes the process very real and fun. When you do choose a color palette, consider the nursery furniture, your flooring, and any ‘unchangeable’ items first. Then, you can choose all of the colors for the walls and decor options. My friend, Alex, chose to go with all neutrals: white, cream, and light beige, with just a few pops of light blush. I think that is a beautiful color palette for her first baby girl. Plus, it is simple enough to last a while.

Know Your Needs vs. Wants

Any new mom or dad is going to go a little crazy and that is okay, but definitely take the time to consider what is a need and what is a want, or you will end up with a very cluttered room, which is not so great or practical and it will only make your life harder in the long run. Diapers? Obviously that is a need. Wipes? Same. A cute unicorn jumpy house? Uhhh… maybe that is not so practical, especially not for a newborn. You get the point! What is a need vs. a want is somewhat similar for everyone, but it is also based on what will make your life easier as a parent. There is no right or wrong way to parent and you just need to see what works best for you! 

Add Personalized Touches

Last but not least, add personalized touches. Have you picked out a name yet? Maybe consider adding it above her or his crib. Do you have a special blanket picked out? Maybe embroider his or her name on the blanket. This is not only a cute touch, but also a great keepsake to have in the future. There are so many ways to add personalized touches to a nursery and in my opinion, it is the best part, so have fun with it.

Get $50 to Spend at Stitch Fix!

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Have you been wanting to give Stitch Fix a try? I have some exciting news! Right now when you sign up through the link HERE you will get $50 to spend at Stitch Fix! Typically you only receive $25 to sign up, so this is such a great offer! There really is nothing to lose with this awesome offer!

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix is a personalized shopping service that provides you with clothing and accessories all without leaving your house. You fill out an online profile with your detailed information. You are then provided with a stylist who will handpick 5 clothing/accessory items for you based on your profile. This will include budget, style, etc…. I love how each fix includes a detailed paper with your items and ways that you can style them. This really takes the guess work out of styling if you are not sure now to wear the items. Stitch Fix is for Women (including Maternity), Men and now Kids!

How Much is Stitch Fix?

The initial Styling Fee for Stitch Fix is $20. BUT, this $20 fee can be applied as a credit towards any items that you decide to keep in your shipment. If you decide to keep nothing, then you will lose the $20. The overall amount that you spend will depend on the items in your fix. The prices can vary on items as you can set a budget when you take your Style Profile. IF you decide to keep all 5 items in your shipment, you will save 25% off your entire order! I always set my budget to a low amount and the pieces that I have gotten have been amazing!

Pros & Cons of Stitch Fix:

I think that Stitch Fix would be a great idea for a busy working professional or mom that doesn’t have time to shop for herself. I also love that you can customize when you want to receive your fix. You don’t have to receive each month, but rather you can delay shipments if you choose to do so.

Stitch Fix currently carries women’s, men’s and kids sizes so there is something for every member of your family!

You have 3 days to return the items that you don’t want. You are sent a Pre paid mailer with your order so that you can just drop your items into the mail. Easy peasy!

One of the most important things to remember with Stitch Fix is to really show your stylist your personality and style. Filling out that Style Profie is crucial! One of my friends told me to share my Fashion Pinterest boards with my styist as that can help! Tell your stylist what you like, don’t like. I need to be even more detailed on my Style Profile for this next shipment! 

GO HERE to give Stitch Fix a try! Please leave a comment if you already use Stitch Fix and let me know your thoughts!

Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Valentine’s Day is almost here! I love this day as it is such a fun time to share our love for all of our family and friends. Who can resist sharing their love and affection with sweet treats and baked goods? You will especially be loved after you serve these adorable Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls! They are not only super easy to make, but you will be a rockstar with your kiddos if you serve these on Valentine’s Day morning!

Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients: 

2 Cans Cinnamon Rolls. (Be sure to buy the ones that can be rolled out. Most store brands and the large Pillsbury Grands should work)

​Valentine Sprinkles (there are some great options HERE)

Additional colored icings- this is optional

Instructions: 

Pre-Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Unroll the Cinnamon Rolls.

Take both corners of the Cinnamon Rolls and start rolling them to the middle. Once you reach the middle, pinch the bottom to make a point. Make sure to pinch together really good so that the dough will stay together when baking. 

Cook for 8-10 minutes. The Cinnamon Rolls cook rather quickly when rolled like a heart, so keep an eye out for them!

Once the Cinnamon Rolls have finished baking and have fully cooled, you can start frosting and decorating. Use various kinds of sprinkles and other colored frosting if wanted to decorate as you wish. 

Serve and Enjoy!

Help Pursue Your Child’s Dreams with a Florida Prepaid College Plan + 2020 Promo Code!

This post is sponsored by Florida Prepaid College Plans. Use Florida Prepaid College Plans promo code SWEET1920 to save on your application fee. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy.

Can you believe that February is here? This is an exciting time on so many levels, but I am particularly thrilled because this means that it is time for Open Enrollment with Florida Prepaid College Plans. We have a prepaid plan for our son Brady, and it thrills me as I stop to think about how this is going to impact his life one day. Even though he is only 8 years old, planning ahead is vital! We are excited to be a part of the more than one million families that Florida Prepaid has helped to save for college! This has been one of the best decisions that we have ever made!

If you have not yet taken the opportunity to sign up your child for a Florida Prepaid College Plan, this is the year to do so as plans are at the lowest prices that they have been in 5 years! Florida Prepaid is committed to making college savings affordable for Floridians. In fact, a recent announcement was made that impacts many Florida families to offer them a huge rollback in Florida Prepaid Plans pricing! Price reductions are due to successive years of lower than anticipated tuition and fee increases. (These price reductions impact plans purchased in 2008 and later) This price reduction has impacted families of over 224,000 students, and nearly half of the customers have refunds totaling $500 million dollars! My family and I personally were a part of this impact and our monthly plan was significantly lowered. Because of this price reduction, we hope to pay off our plan much sooner than anticipated!

I am extremely passionate about Florida Prepaid College Plans and the affect that they are having on my son Brady’s future education. It gives my husband and I such joy and peace of mind to know that Brady is going to have a bright and successful future ahead of him thanks to help from our Florida Prepaid College Plan.

Can I encourage you to start 2020 off in the right direction? It’s not too late to make another resolution for the year! In fact, why not make your child’s future education a top priority this year? You can make this happen! For a limited time, you can get special reduced pricing on all 529 Prepaid Plans! In addition, through February 29, Florida Prepaid College Plans is waiving the $50 enrollment fee! That is right, when you use Florida Prepaid College Plans Promo Code SWEET1920 your application fee is 100% waived! There is no reason to not take advantage of this amazing offer!

How does Florida Prepaid College Plans make saving for college simple and secure?

  1. Affordable pricing

Florida Prepaid College Plans offers plans that fit into any budget. Plans start at just $44 per month. I suggest that you start a plan for your child as soon as they are born. Don’t wait until the last minute to set aside money for college. The time to start saving is now! If you received a Christmas bonus or have a tax refund in your future why not put that money to good use and start saving for your children’s future education?

  1. Peace of mind

Don’t lay awake at night worrying about how you are going to pay for your child’s college education. With Florida Prepaid College Plans, you have a guaranteed investment into your child’s future and there is nothing to lose. Decide which plan is the most convenient for your family and sign up! You will lock in future college costs and worry less about how you are going to pay for college. As a mom who tends to worry about my boys’ and their future when it comes to college, this helps me sleep so much better at night! Also, with Florida Prepaid College Plans, you will never lose your investment. It is a win-win for sure!

  1. Flexible Plan Options

You may not be aware of this, but there are actually 5 different Florida Prepaid Plans that are available to choose from! I would suggest that you look at each plan carefully and then decide which one is best for your child. As a parent, I also appreciate that these plans can be used at technical and vocational school.

When you stop to think about how this decision is going to impact your child for the rest of their life, it really puts things into perspective!

*2-Year Florida College Plan- This is the most affordable way to earn an AA degree from a Florida College and guaranteed admission to one of Florida’s State Universities.  

*4-Year Florida College Plan- This is the most convenient and affordable way to earn a bachelor’s degree from a Florida College in high-demand fields.

*2 + 2 Florida Plan- Best of both worlds…save money on lower-level courses while receiving a bachelor’s degree from one of Florida’s State Universities.

*1-Year Florida University Plan–Most flexible plan allows you or other family members to buy one year of State University at a time as your budget allows, up to four years.

 *4-Year Florida University Plan- This is the most popular plan and offers the widest variety of bachelor’s degree options from one of Florida’s 12 State Universities.

How is it possible that my Brady is 8 years old? It really does seem like just yesterday that I was holding him in my arms after his quick entrance into this world. How can he be so independent and not require my help for as many things as he used to?
