New Baby

When a family member or friend have a new baby it is sometimes tricky to come up with the right care package to bring them to let them know how excited you are! Food + nourishment, something for the little one to wear or use and a hug. When that meal-train email comes through you can hop on it without stress. Through the years, I have honed in on my go-to care package - what peeps need (+ want!), a package that is not too expensive that is also easy to put together. Let’s face it - when I make others dinner normally my own family suffers and eats eggs that night! Today Im sharing my “new baby care package” jam with you. My gig is tried and true and easy…

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

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.

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….
