Rocco’s modern/rustic hockey room: updates + more

I’m holding down the fort here with two kids in tow these days, so life has been a bit more busy to say the least! It’s all good though and we are loving every minute with our two little dudes. On that note, I happen to have a couple minutes here while both of them are napping and thought I would finally share the (mostly) finished product of my big boy’s modern/rustic hockey bedroom. A few of you have asked to see the progress from previous posts and in honor of the NHL playoffs right now the timing seems fitting. Plus, lets be honest, I don’t have as many opportunities to jump on here, so enjoy!

There are so many great hockey books out these days. Here are a few of our favs!

This 6-hook hockey stick wall coat rack is one of my favorite things in the room. My husband and I made it with one of his autographed sticks and a pack of black hooks from the local hardware store. We drilled the hooks a few inches apart and viola!

Oh the places he’ll go baby shower: travel + safari

My best friend, Eileen, from college is due with her first baby (bonus…just two months after me)! We dreamed about the timing of our babes happening like this and it just so happened to work out with her first and my second. And they are both boys! I cannot wait to share mama-hood with her and watch these little guys grow up together!

Here is a look at the travel and safari theme baby shower (to coordinate with her adorable nursery) that a few other ladies and myself hosted for her at my house this past weekend.

This shower was filled with so much baby love. We are beyond excited for Eileen to welcome baby Gavin into the world and for tons of sweet baby boy snuggles!

Luca Bump Maternity Session: snowy outdoor + snuggly indoor

Whoa! Where did time go? My little bambino and I are at the 9 month marker! Why does it seem like the first 8 weeks drag by and the last 4 weeks fly at mach 10 speed? Either way, I am so excited to meet this little guy! One more month of this belly growing even bigger.

This past weekend I was beyond blessed to experience an amazing maternity session with my bestie at Photography From Eileen.  She never ceases to amaze me and I cannot wait to share her work with you! Here are just a few of my favs from my snowy outdoor and snuggly indoor maternity shoot.

 

 

 

 

I love these simple black and white snuggly photos with ALL my boys! These were taken at Eileen’s studio.

Can’t thank my sweet sis at Photography from Eileen enough for capturing all these precious moments of my boys and I! So. Much. Love.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LordThe fruit of the womb is a reward.” – Psalm 127:3

Elijah newborn lifestyle session: sparkly eyes + sleepy snuggles

I recently had the privilege of experiencing my first newborn photo shoot. At almost two weeks old, baby Elijah was still in sleepy snuggle mode but wanted to peek around a bit at his new surroundings from time to time. However, I didn’t mind snapping some shots of his sweet little sparkly eyes! I’m honored to have captured these precious moments of Elijah’s first weeks in the world. What a blessing he is!
