While subscription boxes may have taken over my blog (and my life?!), my “2 Little Rosebuds” are still the best damn delivery I’ve ever received. 😉 Happy third birthday, my loves. xoxoxo
Happy Holidays to you all from these messy-haired little rosebuds!
Once again, the forecast on Halloween night called for rain showers and high temps in the 40’s. (Every. Freakin’. Year.) Thankfully, we had a back-up plan: Mall-o-Ween!
Yay! It’s finally October, which means it’s also… PUMPKIN TIME!! Last weekend (technically still September, but what-evs) we took the girls and drove down to The Great Pumpkin Farm. It was nearly 80 degrees, cloudless, and FAR from the ideal crisp autumn day that I had hoped for. (I even managed to get a flippin’ sunburn. Ugh.) Non-traditional weather aside, we had a pretty good day — or as close to a good day as you can get with 2 hyperactive, meltdown-prone two-year old twins. Hayrides were ridden, fried dough was eaten, ducks were quacked at, and one out of two […]
Yep, today my two little rosebuds turned TWO! — Where did the last 12 months go?! When people tell you how time goes by fast when you have kiddos, they’re not kidding. Zooooom! We had a little party yesterday with close family and plenty of “Yo Gabba Gabba” decorations. I made vegan cupcakes with orange frosting (to match DJ Lance’s hat, duh!) and star-shaped sprinkles. The girls got an insane amount of gifts and I made a big mommy “oopsie” by deciding to open the cards after the party… Meaning I had no way of knowing who bought which gift. Uggghh. I didn’t […]
The majority of our holiday was spent at my parent’s house, but before we headed to the festivities, I decided to try my luck at a quick photo shoot. (Not the best idea.) Everly was in a mood and flat out refused to sit next to her sister… While Chloe flipped the eff out at my attempt to cover her crazy mop of hair with a headband. Ah well, I tried… Evie managed to sit still long enough to get a few shots and almost looked mildly happy. Until… …Chloe joined her. (The NERVE!) Ev was NOT pleased. Nope. Not pleased at all. […]
Mother’s Day #2 turned out pretty nice, despite having absolutely nothing planned for the day. Hurray for spontaneity! I had received two adorable outfits from Feltman Brothers a couple weeks ago and decided that Mother’s Day would be the perfect day to try them on and do a little photo shoot on the porch. (You can read more about Feltman Brothers here). Grumpy faces aside, the girls looked stinkin’ adorable in their little vintage-inspired, hand embroidered bubble rompers. Love them! After taking roughly five gazillion photos, we had dinner and my husband gave me a Mother’s Day coupon book that featured […]
Time to celebrate Spring and the coming warmer weather with a little peek at the latest collection from Matilda Jane Clothing! Woohoo! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you already know that Matilda Jane makes some seriously adorable children’s clothes. (You can see my past reviews here.) For those who aren’t as familiar, Matilda Jane Clothing is a mom-owned company that specializes in uniquely designed girl’s clothing and accessories. Their collections are fun, whimsical, and sized to fit everyone from babies to mommas. Matilda Jane kindly offered to send me two outfits from their Spring Collection, “It’s a Wonderful Parade”.
Easter #2 with the Rosebuds! If these dresses look familiar, they might be the same ones they wore for their first birthday back in August. (Shhh… Don’t tell ’em!) This year was a little more exciting, since the girls are into actually playing with things now. It also helps that they can sit up on their own and no longer spit up all over themselves. Woohoo! Progress!
I See Me! is a retail site that offers children’s books that are not only beautifully illustrated, but are also personalized with your child’s name, birthday, and more! How cool is that? In addition to books, I See Me! also offers a wide range of fun, gift-worthy items — growth charts, coloring books, placemats, stickers, lunchboxes — all personalized for your little one! Confession time! When I named my “2 little rosebuds”, I (kinda guiltily) knew I was giving one of them a bit of a disadvantage, name-wise. Now, Chloe is a pretty common name, so she’ll be alright… But Everly? […]
Yep, I still have twins. 😉 Sadly, when the girls hit the 1-year mark and my monthly “photoshoots” came to an end, I pretty much stopped regularly sharing photos of them on here. (Pretty crummy of me since the blog is named after them and all.) In all honesty, I’m not sure how many of my current readers really give a flip about my kiddos. Or how much I should even share in a public space. What started as a personal blog about my twin pregnancy has evolved into something completely different and I’m fine with that. But the truth […]
Another year, another “Year in Review” post… (How is 2013 already over?! Slow down, time!! Slow. Down.)
Another year, another attempt at capturing “the perfect holiday photo”… and failing miserably.
…It’s gonna be a looong day. Merry Christmas!
*As of December 2015, Citrus Lane is no longer in business. If you’re looking for an alternative, bluum is a great choice. — You can see my reviews of them here. With bluum, you can choose your own products and build your own box. They feature the same great brands, plus you can save $10 on your first month with coupon code “MRVA286CCE“.* My Citrus Lane box never showed the right tracking info this month, so I had no idea when (or if) I would receive it. After seeing box after box being reviewed by other bloggers, I finally discovered my […]
I hope they’re not permanently traumatized… (Sorry girls. We’ll pay for your therapy sessions.) This is definitely the last year we’re gonna fork over $30+ to see a mall santa. I mean, c’mon… How can they charge so much without even giving us a real, legit beard? Pfft. Though in this guy’s defense, he was pretty friendly. Super creepy looking, but friendly nonetheless. Ho. Ho. Ho.
