We are obsessed with the new Izzy & Ferd spring + summer 17 collection that hitches up and takes you out to the old southwest with Pecos Bill, the greatest cowboy that ever rode. Raised by coyotes, Pecos does everything from lassoing tornadoes, to riding them all across Texas. His favorite horse has so much kick it eats dynamite for breakfast! Along the way, he’ll wrestle rattlesnakes, lasso the moon, and ride shooting stars into the sunset.Suspend all disbelief and get ready for some whoppers. This season, it’s time to pursue adventures larger than life. Check out our favorite looks below from this collection available now!
Modern + minimal is just the way we like it but that doesn’t mean that this room is lacking in detail and playfulness! The sleek modern furniture designs paired with different textures and colors is the perfect way to get that contemporary clean look while still making it feel relatable to little peanuts. We love the pop of color that the green rug lends to this room design along with the fun textured throw pillows. Bunk beds + loft beds are super hot right now and we especially love the loft bed style that allows for a play place underneath the bed. If you are working with a smaller room and limited space this is the perfect style bed that doesn’t take up much needed play space on the ground. Room design + photography by Becky Kimball!
In the words of Beyonce, “It is the most powerful creation to have life growing inside you. There is no bigger gift.” There truly is nothing like it in this world and nothing more beautiful then a women carrying life inside her. Today we are sharing some beautiful images by Jacque Lynn Photography of Anna and her sweet baby bump.

Happy Fashion Friday Friends! We don’t know about you but we are still struggling a little bit to get back into a schedule and be productive since the holidays. Why is January the hardest month to be a mom?! We sure are ready to say goodbye to winter and are already dreaming up our summer family trips… but the truth is that we still have a lot of winter/cold weather a head of us. Lucky for you all we are sharing more of our favorite winter looks for little peanuts today! Sources below!
We all know the saying “less is more” meaning that a minimalist approach to artistic or aesthetic matters is more effective. When it comes to interior design we are totally on the minimalist train and love to see how others use this philosophy in their design approach. Robin with Twenty/Venti is sharing her daughter, Ramona’s, nursery with us. Robin is a twenty-something daydreamer, wife, mother and preschool teacher living in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada.
“I drew most of the inspiration for our daughter’s nursery from Waldorf and Montessori educational philosophies. The idea that everything has a place, is easily accessible to encourage independence, and to be surrounded by natural materials. We kept things white and minimal to make the small space not look to busy or crowded. It’s my favourite room in our home because we’ve put the most intention and care into it.”
TGIF! We don’t know about you but we for one are really excited for the weekend! It’s still been a struggle for us to get back into reality after our holiday break and with all the snow we’ve got going on here we’ve been cooped up inside. We are ready to get out for a couple of days + take a little road trip in search for a little warmer weather. But before we leave we wanted to share part one of our winter fashion editorial featured in our current issue. These are a few of our favorite winter looks this season for little peanuts. We are loving all kinds of plaids, over-sized sweaters and even textures of velvet! Happy weekend friends!
We know many of you are on a healthy kick right now (along with the rest of the country) and we for one are all for making healthier choice in our lives and what we eat. For us we are just trying to take things slow and make lifestyle changes that we can actually do and can become apart of how we live. And let’s not fool anyone here… we still need to have some carbs in our life! Lately we’ve become obsessed with gnocchi and pretty much crave it all the time. Now it’s not the healthiest of meals but it can be pretty healthy and a good alternative to pasta since it’s made from potatoes + eggs and contains a good amount of vitamin A. The other good news is we found a great gnocchi brand that is already pre-made to make things easier at our local Trader Joe’s! Get the recipe for this brown butter gnocchi with pancetta + sage below. Enjoy!
– 1 package of gnocchi, our favorite is Trader Joe’s
– 2 sticks of butter
– 1/2 cup diced pancetta
– 20 fresh sage leaves
– salt + pepper
DIRECTIONS: 1. Boil gnocchi in a large pot of salted water, they are done once they float up to the surface
2. Melt butter in a pan + stir until it gets nice + golden brown
3. Fry sage leaves in butter + set aside
4. Cook the pancetta in pan until golden
5. Mix gnocchi, brown butter, sage + pancetta in a large bowl + season with salt + pepper
6. Top with fresh grated parmesan if desired
