The Little Pink Dresser

The girls room is definitely one of my favorite rooms in the house, it gets amazing light & feels so cozy with the low ceilings. Lately the big girls have been wanting to play in here by themselves more often, mostly to escape from Claire destroying whatever they are trying to do (third child problems) so we wanted to find a way to add a little more storage to their room for their dolls & some art supplies. Harper has been asking for a pink dresser since the first day we moved in, and a few weekends ago at a local flea market we found the perfect mini dresser to make her dreams come true. It was black when we found it, so we sanded it down, gave it a few coats of primer & then finished it up with a pale pink/coral called Little Piggy by Benjamin Moore. We added some new knobs & I have some leftover wallpaper from the old house that I want to add inside the drawers, but for now, it’s the perfect addition to their room.

Eloise has also been dropping her afternoon nap, so the big girls love to play in here during quiet time (and by play, I mean destroy) so getting some photos of this room with the beds made & the floor clean was not easy. I think by the time Claire transitions to a big kid bed, we are either going to have to scoot these over and add another, or at least add a trundle so she can bunk with her sisters! Or maybe by then Harper will insist on having her own room. Stay little, my darlings.

You can see before & after photos of the dresser over on my Instagram stories (@jlgarvin), I tried to cover all of the sources for the room but let me know if I missed something! Hope you all are having a great week!!! XO

Rainbow Inspired Mini Favorites

This week is St. Patrick’s Day, which means it’s the one time of year that we have Lucky Charms in the house & it is a marshmallow world! Lately I am loving all of the rainbow inspired clothes for kids, Eloise is obsessed with everything blue which is hard to find for girls sometimes, so whenever she spots something with rainbow colors on it, she immediately wants it. I thought this year instead of going all green, we would round up some of our favorite rainbow inspired styles.

How fun is that rainbow stacker toy?! The girls have a smaller version, but I love the colors in this one! It might make it’s way into an Easter Basket at our house next month! Now we just need this winter weather to disappear. And some green beer! What are your St. Patty’s Day plans?!

Snack Time with Wonderful Halos

As moms, I think we can all agree that the most commonly spoken phrase from toddlers is “can we have a snack?” and in our house, with three girls, it’s basically a chorus all day long. When Wonderful Halos reached out about sending us some samples, we had to fill them in on a little secret, we already had an entire drawer full in our fridge.

Snack time for us is after school & after nap time, and there are a number of reasons why we choose Wonderful Halos mandarins. We of course love that they are healthy! Unlike empty calories in crackers or all of the sugar found in most kids’ snacks, we feel good about giving the girls fruit and can always say YES when they ask for seconds. Because they always do. I love that they are easy enough for the girls to peel & they don’t have seeds. There’s nothing worse than giving kids a snack and they’re finished with it before you can even open one for the next kid, the girls take their time meticulously peeling their Halos, pulling all of the pieces apart and usually lining them up before eating them. Five minutes of peace and quiet? Yes please!

And last, they’re deliciously addicting!!! I love when I can snack on what they’re having, you know as a mom you better not dare try to eat something else unless you are hiding in the pantry! 😉 Hope you will give them a go, if you don’t have a fridge full of them already!
