Let me just start by saying I love blogging. It's my outlet as I feel sometimes I lose myself getting sippy cups, wiping noses, cooking dinners (plural) every night, finding blankets, wiping bums, organizing playdates etc. Blogging is about me, Ruth as a person aside from being a mom. Lately with Amelia's eye episodes and getting into the routine of Sophia in preschool a few days a week I find myself busy. Millie is growing into a toddler and needs attention much more in the day and so my blogging is left until the girls are in bed. From their bed time until mine I am up working on my posts. This leaves no real time for me and the hubs to communicate and spend much needed time together. I have been struggling to get good posts up and I've realized that I just don't have the time and energy I need to do that. With the Holidays coming up and family coming in from out of town I am realizing I just need to take a break. I want to focus on my family and enjoy the end of 2015 and start the beginning of the year being present with my family.
I definitely want to come back onto my little internet corner, but taking a break will let me re group and see if I want to change things here or what next year will bring with my blogging. During my break you can follow me on Instagram at @ruthyannie. I'll be posting our happenings, outfits and Holiday fun with my family! I'll be back sometime early next year so until then have a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year!
I normally would have my Friday Fashion post up here, but Millies eyes are having a terrible episode and I don't have the time or energy to do a Fashion post. So here's to real life and real mom hood. We took her up to a special eye Dr. at Seattle Childrens so they can see what her corneas look like when she is having an episode. In the mean time are dealing with a stuffy nose and congestion with Sophia at the same time. Never before have I been more grateful for two hands although three and four hands would mean I can actually cook dinner and clean the house while helping both of my littles. So, here's a few pictures I found of the girls and I'll hopefully be back next week with one or two Fashion posts! Here's to keeping it real.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Thank you for reading!
I LOVE Thanksgiving. Having everyone gather around a decorative table to celebrate what we've been blessed with throughout the year is just my favorite. That and also watching football. Football is kind of my favorite too. Anyways my husbands parents are going to be in town for Thanksgiving and everyone is so excited! My mom and I have been looking at different table decorations and I thought I would share some of my favorites! Links to the sources are below.
1. White and gold with copper/tan accents. I love this because it's so simple! Found here
2. Green, white and tan in a rustic box with candles. I love all the green in this centerpiece. Different than the typical Fall colors!
3. Gold pine cones as name tags. Having this be the focal point on the table would add a pop and not cost a lot.
4. Rich tones on this table are beautiful! I love the orange, green and purple together.
5. Chestnuts and candles. This is a really beautiful and simple yet serene center piece.
6. Orange pumpkins with branches. I love this idea and would also love using this as a thankful tree. You can see the
thankful tree idea here and the center piece here.
7. White, gray and green colors are beautiful together. I love this table and think it would be beautiful on a long table.
8. The most dramatic and different piece with using beautiful feathers.
9. Gold. Nothing says decadence more than gpld and using spray paint to cover pumpkins in gold is a huge statement.
So many beautiful table scapes out there! These are some of my favorites and I'm just loving rich dark colors with a pop of white.
Do you decorate your Thanksgiving table? Do you have colors that your loving for Fall?
Thanks for reading!
Halloween was well an experience. With kids it revolves more around getting snacks, preparing costumes, gathering sippy cups and then you throwing an outfit together and running out the door as your kiddos squeal with glee their pumpkin candy buckets bouncing around. Then wait potty break! before we even step of the patio. Most of that is true. We managed to NOT have to stop for a bathroom break and that is what we call winning during Halloween.
Some pictures of our shenanigans with our two mini shenanigans.
Pumpkin pancakes for to start out our day!
Our cupcake was not happy with a hat. She ended up settling for a bow headband that she wore as a necklace. #pickyourbattles
And this one looked like this the whole night. I mean what girly girl doesn't want to be a princess for a night?
So much excitement these two would not stop moving for a picture.
I don't think it could get any cuter than Cinderella and a cupcake!
Glitter is a little girls best friend!
My parents and my girls! They just love each other!
We had a great Halloween and seeing the kiddos so excited and smiley while they run from house to house gathering my I mean their candy is really the cutest. Seeing the memories they make and how happy they are in life is one of the best things to witness as a mama.
Happy Monday and I'm off to enjoy one of those tootsie rolls that you know your kid will not miss! Thanks for reading!
