Making the Switch: From Cribs to Toddler Beds

Switching from Cribs to Toddler Beds
We FINALLY made the switch from cribs to toddler beds last month, and I’m here to tell you all about it! First of all, I have no regrets about how long I kept Romy and Piper in their cribs. They turned three in September, and I suddenly felt so much pressure to transition them to beds. While I’m glad I went ahead and did it, I do think I could have kept them in cribs…

Romy & Piper’s 3rd Birthday Party, Toy Story Style

Twins 3rd birthday - Toy Story party theme
I remember our friends having to cancel their twins’ birthday party back in March, and thinking “Thank goodness Romy and Piper’s birthday is so far away, this will all be over by then.” Uh, nope! Here we are in September, and having a really big kid birthday party still sounds like a dumb idea. When I realized we couldn’t do our usual big party (we did a big breakfast/cowgirl bash at Zoomars for their first…

The Pool Fence

Pool Safety Fence - Katchakid
Since the day we moved in to the new house, the pool (and lack of pool fence) has been a hot topic of conversation both within my family and in my DMS ;). I always intended on getting one, but it actually took a little longer than I expected to research, gather bids, and schedule an installation. Those first few weeks living here without a pool fence were stressful! The girls can’t swim yet, so…

Morning Routines

Yoga Morning Routine
As I’ve settled in to the new house, I’ve also settled in to a new morning routine. Without childcare out here (ugh, I miss our babysitter so much!), my mornings are more valuable than ever! Waking up Earlier I’m getting up earlier, which is easier because I’m sleeping SO much better our here. It’s SO quiet (except for the crickets, frogs, and occasional owl hooting) and so dark without the street lights. Guys – we…

Closet System

IKEA Pax Closet System - Custom - Palms to Pines
I never did post the details about my closet from our old house, and it was honestly because I never finished organizing/styling it the way I wanted to before we had to move. But I did LOVE the system I used and have received so many questions about it, which I have mostly left unanswered thinking I would eventually post about it. Now we are in the new house, and the room I originally thought…

The New Place

We moved to the Bonsall/Fallbrook/Vista area. It’s about an hour south and inland from where we were living in Costa Mesa, just inland from Oceanside.

Moving On

I haven’t felt like getting personal on here for a while…a long time in fact! But I do want to update you that yes, we moved. When I found out I was pregnant, we were living in a little two-bedroom apartment. We’d been wanting to buy, so I thought we could casually look while I was pregnant in case we could make something work, but otherwise we’d be fine in our apartment. However, once I…

The Playhouse Remodel

The grandparents bought this playhouse for the girls’ birthday last year, and I finally got around to re-painting it! When I was picking paint colors, a reader sent me this post by Almost Makes Perfect. At first I didn’t want to copy her colors, but then I decided I loved what she picked and why re-invent the wheel? 😉 So if you want the paint color info, she details it all out in her post!…
