So you got invited to a diaper shower huh? If you’re not a female over the age of 25 you probably don’t know what the heck a diaper shower is. And that’s ok! My husband finally just kept calling it, “that thing you’re going to.” So let me explain. Not to make you feel stupid but diaper showers are pretty much exactly what they sound like; you shower a person with diapers. The reason it’s not a baby shower is most likely because someone else is already throwing one of those for the mom-to-be so they’re diversifying or it’s not their first child and have the baby necessities. So, there goes the element of surprise with, “what could this gift be!?” If we can’t have that, why not have, “OMG! How cute!” Yes, that can be the reaction with diapers and wipes, I assure you 🙂
If you ever stop by our house, no matter the occasion, my husband will most likely give you a big hug, drag the puppies to the backyard so they don’t trample you, fix you a drink and then do his favorite thing – take you on a tour. It’s so sweet to hear him explain all the details of what I’ve done and fun to hear the pride beaming in his voice as he says, “we found this at an antique store.” – Oh ya, best husband ever. He loves the great finds almost as much as I do! – So, I’ve taken a cue from my hubby the past couple weeks and have been leading my Instagram family on a tour of my home (sorry, no drinks!). This was never meant to be a blog post but as I took these pictures day after day and told the stories of whats created this house I realized there was so much more to share than what I was able to post in fleeting Instagram moments. So, here are my favorite Instagram moments including all the details. Hope you enjoy this house we have made into our home – we sure do!
It didn’t hit me right away that I would have a picturewall in my house. It happened because it drove me nuts that we had this long hallway that just sat there empty & felt somewhat like The Shining. So, my wheels began to turn: Chair rail? No. Big pieces of artwork? No. Then it hit me – it’s going to be a picturewall!! I had one in my house growing up and I thought it was so fun to see pictures of my family from all different times in our lives. Plus, it will give my husband and I an easy way to embarrass the kids when they’re older. Yes, I plan ahead.
Happiness, tears, stress, sleepless nights, fun, planning, lots of love – obviously a wedding is in play right? I was one of those brides that truly loved planning my wedding right down to the goodie bags. Now looking back, the things I cherish most are the unique “moments” we put together to make our day personal and meaningful. Even though these were done for my wedding, I wanted to share them as they can be done exactly as they are or adapted for any wedding. So, here are my top five (and yes, it was hard to choose!) unique and beautiful wedding moments.
