Hi, I'm Jessica. I'm 25, newly wed, and raising the queen of our house, Aubrey. She's two years old. We live in the SF Bay Area with our #1 guy, Bobby Valentine. Our time is spent styling/spoiling Aubs, making our new house a home, and traveling. Aubrey is the center of our universe, and my blog will reflect that accordingly.
Aubrey attended the 2nd birthday party of her best friend Lincoln. She had a blast. The last picture was taken right before we left, true exhaustion.
— Aubs. Working on it, kid.
Aubrey is sick. Like…the worst kind of sick. Throwing up…from both ends. Every diaper we’ve changed literally has sh!t pouring out of the sides. What does this have to do with clothes? Well when I’m having a rough day, I buy myself pretty things. So Aubrey got two new dresses and a new leotard for gymnastics, all on sale at Target. Not pictured: cake batter ice cream.
Random shots of Aubs from our cruise. All nautical errything.
Bon Voyage, we’re on a boat! Aubrey is on her 2nd ice cream cone of the day and loving life.
Is it possible for a 2.5yr old to be a legit stud at gymnastics? Because I’m pretty sure that’s what happened last weekend. She rocked it, completely loved everything about it. Plus I guess 45mins of non-stop play time will knock a toddler out, immediate nap time.
We also got to spend some time with Monique (not pictured, moms are usually behind the camera), and her beauty Haley. Raising your own kids right along side your best friends babies is truly the best.
We will be gone for the next week on a kick-ass cruise to Mexico. My entire family is going + my brother in law Jeff…psyched would be an understatement. Bon voyage lover faces=)
We DIYed terrariums today! Super easy and a fun way to get your hands a little dirty. Here’s what you need:
Any kind of glass container, open or closed.
Soil (they make special soil for cacti and succulents)
Plants (cacti and succulents work well since they don’t need much maintenance)
Little figurines to add to your scene.
1. Pour 1-2 inches of activated charcoal as your base.
2. Mix in soil 1/4-1/3 of the way to the top with some activated charcoal mixed in.
3. Place plants on top of soil and press down firmly to eliminate air pockets. Space plants apart so you can easily add more soil.
4. Decorate! Place your moss and decorative rocks around the plants in anyway you’d like. I like this step the most because I get to make my own little Ferngully-esque world.
Maintenance depends on the type of plants you used. Closed terrariums tend to be self sustaining requiring very little water. I’d advise feeling the soil to see if it needs watering.
Happy crafting =)
