Under the Sea Birthday Party

Hiiii! Here I am almost 3 months post-birthday, FINALLY sharing details from our Under the Sea party, haha. Better late than never? We were  so  unsure  what we wanted the theme of Gio & Gabi’s joint birthday party to be this year. (And by we, I mean me. Haha.) We considered a few different themes, but I fell […]

DIY Baby Gate

You guys. I got a chop saw! It was my Valentine’s Day present (ha!), & I LOVE IT. I used to saw my wood by hand (not fun) or go to Lowe’s with my meticulous cut list, hoping I wouldn’t need to make any adjustments along the way. Now that I have my own way to cut […]

Snow Days in March

Soooo. Apparently Mother Nature decided to grace us with some snow. In March. Mid March, actually. Can you sense my excitement? Haha. Now, I’m not one for mom shaming but come on lady, get it TOGETHER! You guys know I’m a Florida girl, so I’m just over here wishing for summer– but  it’s pretty much a life rule […]

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Mason Jar Gift Ideas

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again! It snowed for the first time here in North Chicago & it’s officially feeling like Christmas time. It inspired me to put together a post with some holiday gift ideas– this time it’s in the form of Mason Jar Gifts. How CUTE are these?!? Seriously, you guys. […]

Gabriella’s Baptism!

This past weekend we celebrated Gabriella’s baptism! We had an intimate ceremony at the same church that Giovanni was baptized, & where Tom & I also got married. As a Catholic parent, it’s so special to watch your child officially become “a child of God” & part of the church. This poor girl fussed & cried basically […]

Balsamic-Dijon Glazed Salmon Recipe

This has become a regular in our dinner rotation– it’s a quick, easy & healthy meal. You can’t go wrong with that! I found the original recipe from Well Plated on Pinterest (where else?!) & we’ve tried a few others, but none are as good as this one! I mentioned on Snapchat (@thelovenotes) that I’d share […]

Our Experience with Potty Training

At Gio’s 18 month check-up back in August, the pediatrician recommended we start talking about going on the potty & really familiarizing him with the concept. I did have a potty book, so we started reading that along with our usual bedtime books. Even though we were talking about it & showing him how we use the potty, he […]
