Romy and Piper’s Nursery

Palms to Pines Nursery Reveal | Romy and Piper | Twin Girls Bohemian Tropical Nursery
We’ve actually had our nursery mostly done for a long time now. I got a good chunk of it done early on in my pregnancy, which turned out to be a good thing since I went on bedrest at 28 weeks. The babies came at 30 weeks, and then were in the hospital for three months. On the day I was discharged from the hospital, Blake printed a few pictures to put up by the…

Dad’s Choice | Bugaboo Donkey2

Twin Stroller and Car seats | Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30 | Bugaboo Donkey2
I keep getting questions about our stroller (we have the Bugaboo Donkey² ), both on the blog and in person. So I’m answering them once and for all on here! Q: Does it fit through doorways? (The question I get the very most!) A: YES! I have yet to find a doorway that I can’t fit through, which I was really surprised by since it’s a side-by-side. Q: How does it fit in your trunk? A. I drive a…

Valentine’s Day | Traditions & Tees

Valentine's Day Tee Shirts
What are some of your favorite Valentine’s Day traditions? I want to start thinking about some fun ones to start with our little family – both with Blake and with Romy and Piper. Growing up, I remember that my mom used to make these really amazing, huge, chewy oatmeal cookies on Valentine’s Day, and only Valentine’s Day. I think it might have started because my dad loves oatmeal cookies, so she made them for him…

Baby Stuff | Micuna Rocker + Bassinets

Micuna Chair | Twin Rocker + Bassinets | Palms to Pines
Of all of the fun twin/baby things we have in our house, this rocker/bassinet combo is definitely the one we get asked about the most. It’s a great conversation piece for sure ;). After being in the hospital for 3 long months, we walked in the front door with our girls for the first time and realized we had no idea where to set them down. The first thing we saw were these bassinets, so…

Hitting Milestones & the Lovevery Play Gym

Lovevery Play Gym | Best baby play mat | Palms to Pines
I’ve had lots of questions about the therapy the babies go to, so I figured I’d answer them all at once on here. When we were in the hospital, the babies received amazing physical and feeding therapy.  (Like, I’m still weirdly obsessed with our feeding specialist, maybe that’s a story for another day!) Upon discharge, they were still considered “fragile feeders” so we were anxious to continue their feeding therapy. Unfortunately the wait time to…

A Letter From an Instagram Husband (Re: the Anti-Bloggers)

There’s an interesting conversation going on in the blogger/influencer community. Many people are blaming these influencers for fueling a social media epidemic that is undermining our self worth. I wanted to speak up against what I feel is a misguided narrative toward hard working women and men in the blogging industry. There is some truth to the dialogue people are having about the negative influence social media has on our society. People imply these bloggers…

Our Pick for Stroller/Carseat Combo

Bugaboo Donkey2 | Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30 | Choosing a carseat and stroller combo
One of the questions I get the most is: “What stroller and car seat combo did you pick?” I totally get why so many people ask because it’s a big decision – one that I researched a ton while I was pregnant! Ultimately, I decided to first pick my stroller, then pick car seats that were compatible (more on that later!)

Things I Want to Remember about Blake (on his 34th birthday)

Today is Blake’s birthday – he’s 34! Today he said, “Man, I’m old.” My response was, “No, you’re just right.” And I honestly feel like all of the sudden everything is just right. Instead of writing something sappy and vague, I decided to share some things I wrote down while we were still in the hospital. They were just some things I wanted to remember about Blake in that time, and I’m glad I wrote…

New Year’s Thoughts and a few Easy Resolutions

Stillwater Morning Robe | How to wear a duster
I’ve never been more excited or more anxious to start a new year! The last 4 months of 2017 was spent in the hospital with the babies, and then when we brought them home the holidays were in full swing. Blake’s been either off of work or working from home since they came home. We’ve fallen into a routine together and managed, but this week Blake goes back to work and all bets are off.…

That Double Stroller Life | Bugaboo Donkey2

Bugaboo Donkey 2 | Palms to Pines
Before we had babies, I didn’t think a whole lot about the big picture of it all. But for some reason, there were just a few moments I envisioned in my head that I was so excited for. One of them was a vision of setting up the nursery with Blake. I pictured being in the nursery together, painting and setting up a crib (little did I know there would be two cribs!) and was…
