5 Tips & Tricks For Camping With A Baby Or Toddler + Packing List!

Camping with a baby for the first time can be intimidating to say the least. Our son was 4 months old the first time we took him camping. We are usually tent campers, however the first year we took him, we rented a camper to make things a bit easier.

The second time we took him camping, he was 16 months old and we camped in a tent at Parlee Beach Campground. He is 4 years old now, and we've gone camping every year. I feel like I've learned a lot along the way, and wanted to share 5 tips & tricks + a printable camping with a baby checklist with you!

The Future Of "Adventures At Home" And The Pressure Of Bright White Houses

For a while now I've had the feeling like something is shifting. I have about 6 other blog posts sitting in drafts right now that I still plan on publishing soon, but I wanted to talk about some changes that are coming to Adventures At Home.

For so long I've felt the pressure to fit into this perfect blogger bubble of white houses, perfectly posed flat lays, and beautifully curated content. The truth is, I'm bored with bright white everything, and it's not realistic for me to try to keep up with it. My countertops aren't granite, and my life isn't filtered in a millennial pink haze. I know it's all in my head, but I've been feeling like less of a blogger because I don't have a perfectly curated instagram feed.

I'm messy, creative and my life is wonderfully colourful

5 Last Minute & Budget Friendly Mother's Day Gift Ideas!

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and if you're anything like my husband (or myself), you may not know what to get that special mama in your life.

In my house, we are awful at giving gifts, and I'll be the first to admit it. For Mother's Day this year, I told my husband what to get me and he got it. We aren't big on surprises around here because if we want something, we usually just discuss it and buy it. We prefer more practical and budget friendly items, which inspired me to create this list of items I personally love and won't break the bank!

Townhouse Makever Series- Phase One!

It's begun! We are starting the first phase of our little townhouse makeover by covering up all of the nail holes and cracks, and figuring out what color to paint. My mom happened to have a big pail of crack fill and a putty knife that she lent us for this project.

I've decided to paint almost every room white because of the weird lighting situation we're dealing with. All of the bedrooms and the living room have no lights on the ceiling, and nowhere to install one. Painting the rooms white will brighten things up a lot. This photo below is our living room. It used to have two huge bookcases in that corner, but I just sold them because they were taking up much needed room, which was closing the room in even more.
