Procrastination

Everyone gets overwhelmed. But how do you come out of it? I usually crawl into a hole for a few days. Then I come out of it, but only a little. It usually then takes on the form of inspiration boards, sourcing product + ideas and making lists. (OH, and driving my hubs crazy hee hee). Truth is, we've had such a world-wind few months and now that our lives are in more order it has been quite tough getting back on our regular schedule! I've been feeling a bit un-motivated myself and needed a rest, then a push. Does this happen to you? This weekend I made a big push in piecing together

NYC with Kids

We’ve received lots of asks about things to do in NYC with the little munchkins. Whether it be a day visit or a whole weekend, we head into the City all the time with Lucy + Greer. One of my favorite trips to NYC throughout the year is my birthday trip in April/May. Every time we start planning a jaunt in I set our family up with a simple plan: Find a fun | different activity, a fun place to eat + an…

Dining Room Reno

We’ve been working hard to get each room in our farmhouse renovation checked off of the list. Its been challenging since Mike and I have been doing a lot of the work for the reno ourselves and to-dos in different rooms hit the priority list that inhibit us from completing one actual room. For instance, our music cabinet in our family room is still not built. Truthfully, we thought that would have been the first thing Mike completed! Holidays, events and life have kept our list on its own track, despite

Communion Shoes

I’ve recently received a lot of questions about First Holy Communion dresses and shoes. Lucy makes her Communion on April 27th, so we’re on the “Communion scene” for sure 😜! I’ve been on the hunt for a while. Lu decided to wear my sister, Meredith’s dress. She loves mine, but my sister’s dress suits her perfectly. It fits her perfectly and is so Lucy’s little style. I can’t wait for you to see it! She decided she wants to wear

Pancakes with Daddy

Cleaning up from the Pop Up Shop, getting our girls back on a normal schedule, finishing up house projects and getting ready for our vaca in a week. Its raining in CT today and I am secretly okay with it. We are looking so very forward to a weekend with no plans - just piecing ourselves back together after a month-long rush and spending some good family time together. Today Im sharing our family’s pancake recipe

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...PETITE LUCETTE (children + women!)!

Petite Lucette is a brand we’ve been following for a long time. Its a brand we’ve been buying for our girls for a long time. Its a brand we stand behind and have loved watching for a long time. They’ve just launched their first-ever women’s line and we have been so thrilled to share it with you! It is THE BEST and the most well done “Mommy and Me” line we’ve seen (and we’ve been around!) I snagged a few pieces for myself (I went for the Francine skirt in honey, the Georgette Overall in celadon green, the Rimbaud blouse in black thin squares and

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...Paper Cape!

A few months back I came across a fabulous little brand named Paper Cape. Their jammies stole my heart, but as I poked through their website I fell in love on every corner. I am a visual person - I love touching and feeling fabrics. I have been doing it for so long that it has become so much a part of who I am. There are those few times, however, when I am online shopping (personally or for Bitsy) when I know (without being able to touch a product) that it is just the right quality fabric and beautifully crafted. Visiting Paper Cape’s website was one of those times. They’ve generously offered Bitsy’s readers a 20% discount so keep reading to learn more…

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...PETIT PEONY!

We’ve been following Petit Peony for a while and always love their creations. Every season we feel like they move the bar higher - on cuteness, on quality and on common sense clothing for children. PP reminds us of clothing our moms used to put us in. Clothing that will last in bins for generations to come. Silhouettes, fabrics and patterns we will never regret and that can transition from a family photo shoot to a playground. Well, their spring/summer 2019 collection is definitely one worth sharing, so if you haven’t peaked at it yet now is your chance….

Bitsy x The Realistic Organizer

Motivation Monday at its finest….
Oh boy do we have something FUN to motivate you on this SNOW DAY Monday! We recently paired up with Stefanie Jones of The Realistic Organizer for some home organization projects. Today, we’re sharing all about Stefanie and her amazing company as well as how she transformed a tricky space in our new Living Room built-ins into a tip-top establishment. Before and afters that will leave you saying HALLELUJAH!

It is a known thing that I like to organize. I get such a high off of sorting, purging and re-organizing. Lately, however, we have been so overwhelmed with our renovations that those fun, little projects have become a burden. Enter Stefanie, THE Realistic Organizer.

Greer's Dress Obsession

We were recently asked to collaborate with a brand we didn’t know. After scrolling through the brand’s website - Baby18World - I decided it was worth a shot and their prices were right. I am not one to take on a collaboration unless I believe in the product and would use/put it on my own children. So, as I shopped and picked out what I liked I stuck with a dress theme since that is all Greer wants to wear to school everyday. I figured I would make this collaboration functional and truly wearable and see if Baby18World’s brand could handle it. Not going to lie, their site definitely didn’t speak volumes to me. There are a lot of sites these days that are being advertised on Instagram and

Namaste + Little Yogis

We recently came across a show on the Amazon Prime app called Cosmic Kids Yoga. Our girls are obsessed with it. Like, ask to do yoga before breakfast obsessed. So since they’ve been consistent with this show and really enjoy doing yoga together along with Jaime, the host, we decided to gift them their own yoga mats. Lucy is obsessed with owls and Greer loves anything with birds, so we chose these mats for them…

Mudroom Confessions

I feel like everything has been coming back to our recent farmhouse renovation! Truth be told, the reno really gave us a chance to re-think our processes as a family and get our day-to-day routine back on track. When we lived in our old house we had very limited space, especially downstairs. As Lucy started Kindergarten, the paperwork coming home and her backpack/lunch box/coats/hats/gloves/STUFF just overwhelmed our space and really took over our downstairs. A friend had given me the tip to purchase this Magnetic Wall Folder. It was a place we kept the important papers Lucy and I would need to access frequently (like the letter day rotation schedule, lunch menus,
