My husband and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Unico 20º 87º resort in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. We have been planning this getaway for a couple of years now. Well, we didn’t have a resort in mind, but we knew that we wanted to celebrate our five year wedding anniversary by going somewhere just the two of us. Kid free, stress free, and full of absolute relaxation.
Life & Style
I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally share with you Brielle’s nursery reveal. It’s been a few months in the making, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Some of you may be wondering why I decided to “transform” Brielle’s bedroom now…I mean, she is already 18 months old. Well, Brielle was affected by Second Child Syndrome, meaning…I didn’t dedicate the time and energy into creating a beautiful space for her before she was born. Yes, I hung some pictures. Yes, I bought her a new dresser and side table.
I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I get the “itch” to switch up my home decor often. We bought this dresser and night stand for Brielle before she was born. We were in a little bit of a rush to find something (second child problems), and we didn’t know whether we were having a boy or a girl, so dark brown was a safe bet. The dark brown furniture worked – there’s nothing wrong with it. But, let’s be honest – it’s not very eye catching, and there is absolutely nothing unique or pretty about it.
I often share what I’m cooking up at home through my Instagram stories. As a result, I’ve received a TON of recipe requests from my followers – it’s about time I share my favourites here on the blog! As most of you already know, we are pretty healthy eaters over here in the Rodi household. My hubby and I both love to cook; we have our household staples but we also like to mix it up and try new recipes as often as possible.
Anyone else in full holiday mode right now? We have already had our tree up for two weeks, and I think we’ve watched The Grinch four times. We love the Christmas season in this house, and I LOVE decorating. I’m always looking for different ways to add in some festive decor, but on a budget. It can get quite expensive and for most of us, it’s unrealistic to change up your holiday theme yearly. I was thrilled when Dear Lily Mae offered to provide this beautiful printable to my followers at no cost.
