Gold & Watercolor Geometric Bunny Art

With springtime and our big move right around the corner, one of the top items on my to-do list was to create a piece that can perform double duty - Easter decor at our current house and woodland nursery decor at the Fixer Upper. I'm pretty sure this Gold & Watercolor Geometric Bunny fits the bill perfectly.


I'm a sucker for watercolor, and with the addition of gold leaf, this is easily one of my new favorite projects.

Pinteresting Solution #2 - Toilet Brush Drip Dry

Having been home for the last 16 weeks, I willingly assumed the majority of the cleaning responsibilities. Without a doubt, there are some chores I like more than others. I don't mind laundry or the dishes but  really really do not enjoy cleaning the bathrooms, especially the toilet. I go in there suited up for a hazmat disaster. Okay, maybe not really but it's pretty gross. I can't even consider using the same gloves afterwards.

And then there is that pesky toilet brush.

Cloth Diaper Wash Routine + Free Laundry Printables

It's been two months since we started using cloth diapers and I'm hooked. Having used disposables for the first few weeks (and for years before as a nanny), I can honestly say that I prefer cloth to sposies. The benefits surely outweigh the minimal inconvenience of extra laundry.

Sure it's only been a couple months but our diapers look and smell as good as new. I credit that to the awesome wash routine I'm sharing with you today.

Our Top 3 Cloth Diaper Picks

Convincing my hubby to use cloth diapers was pretty darn easy. Who would have guessed that three months later we would both be fluff fanatics in our house.


Every family has their preferences but we're obsessed with the one-size options from the BumGenius and Flip brands. Only the best on our baby's bum!

How I Got Cloth Diapers "Hubby Approved"

While I was pregnant I came up with this *crazy* idea that I wanted our little baby to be diapered in cloth. The only factor I still had to consider was my generally sane husband's reaction. How do I convince him that cloth diapering was not outdated or wacky, and would actually be the best decision for our new family?

I researched. I read. I reviewed all the options. When I finally felt confident that I had all the info I needed, I sprung the idea on Joe.
