Baby Cluff No. 2 Due March 2019!


Baby Cluff number two is due March 18th and I am 14 weeks pregnant. We know we're a little crazy and we're totally gonna have two under two for one month (haha, River's birthday is at the end of April), but we could not be more stoked to add another babe to our family and for River to have a sibling!! He has no idea what's in store but he's gonna love it and will be the best big brother ever. I've definitely been more nauseous this time around but that has finally gone away this past week. So I've had a tough time getting myself to walk or workout very much but hoping to start that up this week since I've been feeling better! I've also had more acne and more specific cravings... like acidic things (lemonade, orange juice, salsa, pickles) not sure if that means it'll be a girl but I definitely feel a little different than I did when I was pregnant with River! We're super impatient so we're going to a 3D ultrasound appointment to find out the gender of the baby SOON and can't wait to share! 

We really just feel super grateful for this new addition and huge blessing for our family. :)

And a HUGE thank you to Liz Erban for taking such fun and gorgeous photos of our family!! Not only are her pics amazzzing but she is such a rad human being. Follow Liz on Instagram here: @lizerban and check out her work here:! Book her for your next family sesh if you want some pretty dang magical photos.

Lily Jade Beach Day

Hey Babes!
I just got my black leather Lily Jade diaper bag a couple months ago, and I've been loving it! It is a bit smaller than my brown one, so I use it for quicker outings where I don't need as many diapers and snacks. I also took it on a recent weekend getaway without the babies cause it's the perfect traveling backpack for me too. Here's a link to this specific bag, CLICK HERE! It also has the removable organizer inside that helps me keep organized. This bag is so durable and high quality, I don't feel like I have to stress about it getting ruined! 
I shared all the reasons why I love the Lily Jade company a few post back! CLICK HERE if you want to read it! I love a mama owned company that gives back!

Sage & Nova's Bedroom Makeover

I'm FINALLY done re-doing the girl's bedroom! I never really "did" it in the first place so this is really exciting for me. When my water broke at 26 weeks, we hadn't gotten a single thing for the babies besides the dresser. And once I made it out of the hospital, it was the last thing I had time for! I totally missed the nesting phase, so we settled for the bare minimum and it was fine by me. We knew it was time for an upgrade when the girls were touching the ends of their mini cribs with their heads and toes. So, I thought since we were going to make the switch to toddler beds, I should have some fun and re-do the whole thing. I've spent the last few months putting this together and now it's easily the cutest room in our house! I'll give you the details of where I got everything!

I am in love with their beds! They are probably my favorite part of the room! The bed frames were so easy to put together and really affordable! I got the bed frames and mattresses from Delta Children. 

Here is the link for the Frames: ABBY TODDLER BED
Here is the link for the mattresses: SERTAPEDIC MATTRESS

The bedding is from Carousel Designs ! They offer really cute colors, I had such a hard time choosing. They also have an option to customize a comforter with different patterns and you can embroider your kid's name on it. 
Here are the peach sheets I got: SHEETS
Here is the Comforter I got: COMFORTER

keep scrolling for more links!

Let's talk about the throw pillows!!!
The cutest handmade Cactus pillows are made by a boss mama! They are really great quality, I was so impressed! 
Check out her Etsy shop here! CACTUS PILLOW

I knew I wanted a round velvet pillow but most out there are really pricey! I never would have thought that Forever 21 would have them and for cheap! Here is the link, they have a few different colors. VELVET PILLOW 

okay the thing I'm most proud about is those macrame wall hangings! That was my big DIY project for their room. It was my first time working with macrame and it took me many hours (pulling a few all nighters so I could work uninterrupted)  to get these finished! I really had so much fun though, I think I'm in love with knotting macrame now. 

That plant in the corner, is FAKE. I was shocked a fake plant could look so good. 
I got it off amazon here: FAKE FLOOR PLANT
The plant is in a basket from HomeGoods.

Those adorable hand-knitted lamb dolls are from Cuddle + Kind !
I love this company. For every doll sold, they donate 10 meals to children in need. The girls LOVE their dolls. Here's the link to the ones they have: LAMB DOLL

The bookshelf and baskets are from IKEA. Here's a link to the shelf: IKEA SHELF

You guys know I'm always down for second hand items! This Velvet Lazy boy chair is from Craigslist. The leather footstool is from a thrift store.
 This painting is also something I made a while ago to hang in their room one day. I'm excited I finally framed it and got it up there! 

The sign says "Not to spoil the ending, but everything is going to be OK." This was a gift from a sweet friend of mine. She sent it to me when I was in the hospital, pregnant with the girls. Being told from the beginning of my pregnancy that Nova would either pass away in utero or die right after birth I was having a really hard time. This cute sign was a sweet reminder that no matter what happened, it would be okay.  And boy, did it end up being more than okay! I wanted this up in their room as a reminder of that time, their story, and all the miracles that brought them home to me. 

The salt lamp is something I have used since they were babies and I needed a soft light in their room to nurse and check on them. It is such a good nightlight and it purifies the air! I got it off amazon here: SALT LAMP

I got the plant from home depot and planted it in a candle holder from HomeGoods !

Those cute plush lamb chairs in the corner were the girl's Christmas gift from grandma & grandpa last year. They love reading books in them. You can find them here: LAMB CHAIR

The sun mirrors were another score from a local thrift store!

The white lamp is from Target! You can grab it here: TABLE LAMP

Here's another fake plant! Had to go fake since the girls are professional mess makers.  I love this one from Hobby Lobby, and the best part is you can get 40% off with their everyday coupon. You can get it here! FAKE CACTUS
The Basket is also from Hobby Lobby!  I use it to store their diapers and wipes in a convenient place!

The rug is from craiglist! The papier-mache steer head is from a thrift store as well! The teepee is from amazon, a gift from auntie Mia and uncle Casey for Christmas last year. The leaf garland I hung from the top & the white faux fur rug are from Hobby Lobby !

 Overall, Nova and Sage give their new room a big thumbs up! 
They have done so well with the transition from their cribs. They are really independent and love doing things on their own, I don't know why I worried. They love feeling like big girls.
That concludes the tour! Thanks for reading guys! I had so much fun doing this.  Now the challenge of keeping it THIS clean begins!


Special thanks to Delta Children, Carousel Designs, LBC Shoppe, and Cuddle + Kind!

Lily Jade Giveaway x Savloop

Hi friends!
I'm popping in this week to share with you guys this amazing leather bag from an amazing company, Lily Jade !  First of all, these genuine leather bags are SO beautiful and high quality. Yes, this is a diaper bag! Although, honestly I'd wear it even if I didn't have kids! I have been on the hunt for a genuine brown leather diaper bag for a while, and this one not only fulfilled but surpassed my expectation. There are pockets everywhere AND removable inner organizer (loaded with a matching changing pad).  Getting this inner organizer for me was a game changer! I take it out, load it up, slide it back in, and run out the door. The game changing part though, is that it stays organized! My other diaper bag always ends up complete chaos inside. Oh, and did I mention the jade beaded tassel? I love that detail!  Second of all, I love supporting and sharing companies that give back. Lily Jade gives back to adoptive mamas and foster mamas through charitable contributions, giveaways and community support. Lily Jade is owned by a mama, designed for mamas, and supports other mamas. Sounds like a win win win to me! P.S. Their Mother's Day sale is happening now, so go check it out!
Go to this link and enter the Giveaway for a Lily Jade bag! The giveaway ends May 31, 2018

Freebird x Babe Locals

Hey babes, Mia here! A couple weekends ago Sav and I explored historic downtown San Juan Capistrano. The old-town, southwestern vibes fit our style perfectly and seriously give me life. There were cactus' on almost every corner so us plant ladies were in heaven. Naturally, we thought this city and the Mission San Juan Capistrano would be the perfect place to shoot our newest Freebird by Steven boots! We felt right at home with all the southwestern, bohemian vibes. We 100% recommend visiting this gorgeous city for all of it's culture, history and beauty. But if you plan on visiting the Mission, be prepared to pay a huge freakin fee (that we did not pay because #rebels) if you're "all dressed up" and "have a nice camera". LOL. 

So, if you guys know anything about us, you should know that shoes are pretty much our thang. Like seriously. A great pair of shoes MAKES an outfit. That and shoes always fit, ya feel me? And if you know us really reeeeally well, you know how much we love boots (even in the summertime) and even more specifically, Freebird by Steven boots! We've been obsessing over Freebird for years and we both own a couple pairs. And let me tell you this my friends, these boots were definitely made for walkin' - comfiest ever! They'll also for sure turn a couple heads and heck they'll even make you feel like the coolest chick in the west. ;) Freebird shoes are definitely pricey, but I would honestly rather spend the money for a higher quality shoe that's 1. gorgeous duh, 2. will literally last years and years and years and 3. be so comfortable you could sleep in them. 

ANYWAYS. We had so much fun exploring this city and shooting these boots and hope you love the photos!

Sav's shoes go perfect with basically everythingggg. She even claims you can rock em with a muumuu. ;)
Shop Sav's boots here.

My shoes definitely have more of a specific look, but when you find that perfect outfit, it's fire. FIRE.

Thanks to Zoe and Freebird Stores for gifting our boots! xo.
