Safari theme nursery

When we found out we were having a baby boy we were quick to get his nursery ready for his arrival. We decided on a Safari theme for the nursery.. It was a fun process getting it all together and decorated!

Our daughters room has all white furniture so I was all about the dark espresso in his room.

Easter Brunch

Easter came at a perfect time for my family this year. It fell just a few weeks after our kitchen remodel was complete, so we decided we needed to have a special celebration for our first holiday in the new kitchen. We had a beautiful brunch and here is a little peak at its success:



I made ribbon topiary trees for centerpieces on one of our tables. They are the perfect mix of colors for spring and summer so I am able to use them for more than just the Easter holiday. But these are such a fun way to bring a lot of color to a decorative piece. I would love to make these for every holiday in that particular holidays color scheme but they do take a lot of time and work, although I do think they are worth it...



Our Daughter had her very own Easter place setting





You can't forget the candy on Easter..




Our new baby Hudson who is due in September even got his own Easter basket with a little surprise card...

We decided to announce Hudson's name on Easter to the family to make the day special. We didn't tell anyone the name until that day and it was a fun way to make the announcement special. My Dad, Scott read the card out loud to the family once we all sat down to eat.

It's a boy!!!

It's a boy!! We found out just last week that we are going to be having a baby boy this September. His name is.... Hudson Scott Rivas!! We couldn't be any happier!

Now on to decorating his nursery and figuring a design. I am already set on a Safari/jungle theme, it must have Giraffes!

Baby Bump

Thats RIGHT baby #2 is on its way!!!


Lonnie and I are very excited to announce that our second baby is on its way... we are about 10 weeks along and due in September. It is very exciting to be pregnant again and have life growing inside me.
Hhhmmm I wonder what it is??? We have about 2 months until we find out....
We cannot wait to find out the sex so that we can start in on the nursery. I had a blast decorating our daughters nursery before she was born and I am already looking into both boy and girl nursery themes to get myself ready. I love looking at etsy.com at all of the nursery items people make, they are beautiful!

Hailey's 1st Birthday

Hailey's Minnie Mouse 1st Birthday


It took months to plan our babies first birthday but I had the greatest time learning so many new ways to design and decorate her party. I am not too sure how I came across the Minnie Mouse theme but it was perfect in the end. Here are some pictures to enjoy:
