If you have followed me for a while, you know I have twin girls and that their room is…;well…;super girly. You can check out their “;big girl”; room reveal here. But those that know me well know that I have a LOVE for boy room decor. I love the bold color palettes that lend themselves naturally to masculinity–;orange and navy, lime green and navy, brown and light blue, red and mustard yellow, etc. So when my good friend Raquel asked me to help her design her adorable son's “;big boy”; roompillow covers solid, I was thrilled to oblige! I initially put together two mood boards for her, and we both favored one of the boards, so we went with it, making some tweaks as we went along.

In the end, here is the mood board that I came up with. Isn't it fabulous?! This post contains some affiliate links. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

I am so, so excited that Raquel loved the navy and orange color scheme AND that she loved that bookcase. Ahhhh, that bookcase {which is now sold out–;sorry!} is so, so stunning. And now that I have seen it in person, I am even more impressed with it. And how beautiful is that nailhead trim bed? The bed was recently delivered to Raquel and I am dying to see a photo of it once it is assembled.

Once the room is all put together and finished, Raquel, fabulous friend {and photographer} that she is is going to allow me to put photos of it up on the blog! I can't wait to show you how the mood board comes to life :)

I told you all my wedding was going to be DIY heavy!? And rightfully so because I watched my little budget explode over the past week, so I have very little room to spare.? Next on our planning agenda is to start looking for bakeries to make the cake.? I went into wedding planning dead set on using our local grocery store, but my idea was quickly crushed when I talked to the bakery manager and learned how much a simple cake was going to cost.? After I heard this price, I sort of put my cake planning on hold.

Hey! I am so happy that you’ve stopped by this morning so that I could share my love of front porch decorating with you. Can you believe the first day of fall is this Friday? Let’s welcome it in with some fall inspired decor this week! ?I mean, Jordan doesn’t quite get it and well– the kids, they just want to know how soon they can water the flowers again. I suppose this might be the first year my mums don’t die to due to my neglect. Aubrey is already on top of it!?

The biggest concern with baby walkers is falling, says Dr. Hoffman. “The most severe injuries tend to result from falls down stairs and off of desks, but there is still a significant risk even on flat surfaces, just with tip-overs,” he says. Both Dr. Smith and the AAP, as an organization, are calling for a nationwide ban on the sale and manufacture of infant walkers. “The take-home message is if you’ve got one, get rid of it. Take the wheels off and dispose of it,” Dr. Smith says, and Dr. Hoffman wholeheartedly agrees. But taking away your kid’s infant walker doesn’t mean you have to take away your kid’s ability to bounce up and down. “Kids like that kind of motion, so something like a stationary activity center, which looks like a walker but doesn’t have wheels, is a great alternative,” says Dr. Smith. In a paper from 2001, the AAP also recommended stationary activity centers as a safer alternative to infant walkers, though it stopped short of endorsing specific products.
