30 Kids Books about Bunnies

30 Kids Books about Bunnies

If you know Lucy, you know how OBSESSED she is with bunnies. She sleeps with 10+ stuffed animal bunnies and loves reading books about bunnies! In the almost three years since she’s been born, we’ve acquired a LOT of books about rabbits and bunnies. I  believe it’s important to go “all-in” on whatever your kids love and are interested in, so if Lucy is into bunnies, so am I! We spend a lot of time reading about bunnies, so I  wanted to share a few books we own and love. Note: The ones italicized below we do not own YET, but they look awesome, too! […]

5 Loloi Rugs I Own and Love

Symbology Rug in Ivory & Slate by Justina Blakeney for Loloi It seems like everyone on Instagram has this rug! This rug is a hand-tufted wool rug with such fun texture.  We had it in our family room and while I  LOVED the way it looked, it wasn’t the most practical rug to have in the busiest room of our house. Since the rug has such gorgeous texture and fluff, it sometimes would shed, so felt it would work better in a lower trafficked area of our home. We moved it under our upstairs bed, and we love it in this spot. I’ll try to […]

some of my favorite rugs from rugs usa

One of my go-to spots for affordable rugs is Rugs USA. This post is not sponsored — I  just get asked a lot about rugs in our home, so thought I’d do a dedicated post about different rugs we have and others I love! Anyway, Rugs USA is my usual go-to because you really can’t beat the quality for the price. In the phase of life we’re in, I  don’t want to spend a ton of money on expensive rugs from overpriced places like West Elm or CB2 and worry about them getting ruined. With kids and a dog, we spend a lot of time […]
