My Baby Shower

Brittany's Baby Shower

I feel like the luckiest lady in all the land! A couple of weeks ago, the ladies here at the office threw me a baby shower with all the bells and whistles. It was so sweet. No literally, it was VERY sweet. We had delicious sweet waffles along with all the treats a pregnant girl could want. There wasn’t one savory dish on the menu. Ha! It was right up my alley. It was so wonderful to celebrate our baby boy amongst the company of those I get to work with who I love so much. It’s always so overwhelming to have people spend time and efforts on you. Like, how do you thank them? In a blog post, of course! 😉 Thank you so much to the ladies I love for all the love that went into this shower. This baby (and mama!) feel so loved!

Check out all the details of the baby shower (along with my huge bump!)!

Where to find cute baby boy clothes and giveaway

Lars Baby Shower

As you might recall, I was a skeptical of finding adorable baby boy clothes (you know, stuff that doesn’t have “Little Slugger” plastered on it)  but as we’ve been preparing for the arrival of Baby Boy (due in January!), I’ve been overwhelmed at the number of options. There are way more than I thought! I’ve been lucky to work with some of my favorite brands to create this post and I’m featuring them here so all of you in a similar predicament can have a go-to resource as well. Of course, they’re good for both boy AND girl. If you have more to add, I’m all ears! I’m keeping a very active spreadsheet 😉  Just email or dm me on Instagram.

And…AND! As we previously mentioned, for the rest of the year we are doing a series of giveaways where we recognize the many women around us who teach, lead, serve, work, struggle, love, and support. I’m sure there are a lot of mamas, soon-to-be-mamas, or people who love mamas, who are in need of a treat and and this is your chance. We’ve teamed up with 8 of our favorite brands on a massive giveaway.

Our France itinerary

It’s been a few weeks since our trip to France and as we’ve been cooking on all 4 cylinders since, what with the One Room Challenge and all of our holiday content, not to mention some upcoming big projects (stay tuned!), but I’ve now hunkered down to share our itinerary because if you ever get to the chance to plan a trip to France I’d highly recommend so many things that we did. They took my breath away. I mean, look at my face here! That’s the look of pure joy (and it’s all staged because we’re pulled off to the side of the road 😉 )  Because we were there for a wedding, it took us to a part of the country that I’ve always wanted to go to but hadn’t prioritized yet. It was a life-long dream really.

Instead of creating a comprehensive Paris guide, I’m just noting a few bucket list items that may or may not be the Eiffel Tower. You can find those in all tour books. These are worth it, but not mentioned as often. Here we go!

One Room Challenge Week 7: Final Reveal!

One Room Challenge The House That Lars builtYou guys! Can you even believe we made it to week 7, the final reveal (click here if you’re just joining in)? I’m pretty surprised myself! This One Room Challenge was a TON of work and it’s all thanks to so many generous people who made it possible as well as my awesome team, particularly our business director Mary, who put in so much time and enormous effort into making every detail perfect. In addition to running the business side of Lars, she plays an amazing contractor/DIY role. I mean, the detail work of that floor is nothing short of a miracle. Every single point lines up perfectly! I’m absolutely floored at the work that she did along with some awesome volunteers (victims???). We are so grateful for the countless hours, the late nights, and the sore muscles people sacrificed to help us make this office truly magical. Because it is! I’m so pleased with how this vision came to life. From top to bottom this office has been completely transformed with the help of some amazing companies we were privileged to work with. We’re going to take you through all the elements and little details that brought the entire look together, so buckle up and get ready!
