5 Things

Nella's 2 for 2 Fund

Blogger, Photographer, Writer & Mama- Kelle Hampton has launched the 2 for 2 campaign in honor of her daughter Nella who was born with Down Syndrome. All of the money raised goes towards raising awareness of Down Syndrome and provides opportunities for those with Down Syndrome and their families. Kelle is about $20,000 away from her goal of raising $200,000 by Nella's second birthday on January 22nd.

Hearts in Chicken Noodle Soup

I saw this on Pinterest and I think it is an adorable idea, especially with Valentine's Day right around the corner. I also think that it would be cool to cut the carrots in all kinds of shapes and use it as a learning tool.

New Cell Phone Cover

I got a cover for my new phone the other day and I absolutely love it! Mallorie turned me on to Society6 and they have so many great designs to choose from.

Kitchen Closet Re-do

We have this huge closet in our kitchen that just gets piled up with junk. This picture is my inspiration for what I would like to do with that closet. Our closet is about twice the length of this one so we would do half like this(but a little less fancy) and the other half with shelving for storage. We have a contractor coming by in a couple of weeks to help us get started.

Paper Roll

I've had my eye on a paper roll for Aubs for awhile down. The ones that I found online were $30 plus except for the one from Ikea. The only catch is that it wasn't available online from Ikea. So I finally drove my butt down there last Friday and picked one up. It was only $6.99 and $4.99 for the paper. Such a steal! It was super easy to put together too. We love it, my only regret is not getting it sooner.

Last put certainly not least-
The winner of the 200 follower giveaway is Jaime M. and she actually just started blogging so head on over and say hi!


  1. 2 for 2 fund is amazing! I really hope she reaches her goal by sunday.

    Your phone case is gorgeous! I love the pops of red.

    The closet space for the kitchen is such a great way to to convert an empty space and use it for something more function-able. I can't wait to see yours when its all done. Make sure you take pics of the progress! :)

    Aubrey looks like she is having a great time relaxing and coloring. I think I need to hit up an IKEA now! :) thanks for the great find!

  2. I love those 5 things! And I love IKEA. We actually JUST bought Baby T a loft bed from there. (Which he is not sleeping in... but I digress). And that kitchen closet. OMG. Amazing. I wish I could do beautiful and functional things like that with my whole house!

  3. Thanks for sharing all of this! The 2 for 2 Fund is especially moving.

    And the kitchen nook! I'm DYING. I can't wait to see what the finished product looks like!
