This past weekend celebrating our sweet baby boy was an absolute dream! Due to covid we kept a small and intimate gathering at our new home and it was perfect! I had the most amazing group of ladies host my one and only baby shower and they brought my entire vision to life. Wanted to send a quick thank you to them all – Taylor, Stephanie, Erin, Sara Ann, Mary Beth, Cathy, Sheri, Bridget and Mom – you guys always go above and beyond to love and support me!
Now on to the good stuff. We tried to take as many photos as we could before everyone started to arrive so that I could share all of the fun details with you guys! I know I have a lot of expecting moms on here but even if you’re not and you’re just throwing a birthday or bridal party I hope this is helpful to you all.
Leave a comment below with your favorite part of the shower!
Let’s start with the invitations!
The main question I received on Instagram was about our balloon arch! It is a DIY balloon garland kit from Lushra and you can use my code ASHLEY10 for 10% off your order. I chose the colors Blush, White, Eucalyptus, Pastel Matte Blue and Pastel Matte Green. Shop both of our outfits below.
Hey babes! I’ve been getting a lot of questions from you all for some baby shower dress options since a lot of you are also mamas to be. I can’t believe our baby shower is next weekend! It has been such a strange and crazy time to be pregnant during the pandemic but I am just glad that we are able to have an intimate baby shower at our home with close friends and family. I’m not exactly sure what I will be wearing yet but right now I think it will be this dress from Petal + Pup. (You can use my code: ASHLEYBEARY for a discount) Another website that I love to shop for special events from is Vici and you can use my code: Ashley20 for 20% off of their site. Or you can shop some of my favorite options below.
Happy Monday babes! I have received so many questions about our new front door decor so I figured I would do a quick little blog post recap. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of our front door before we gave it a nice new facelift… I know total #bloggerfail! Let’s just say it was a dingy old navy with paint all in the windows and an old dingy brass handle – which I did manage to take a picture of (as seen above). If you’ve been following me for a little while then you know that I love thrift shopping and T.J Maxx & Homegoods, which is where I bought a lot of my decor from and unfortunately can’t link. But I have rounded up a bunch of similar items for you all to shop to match my front porch! First and foremost, let’s get my outfit out of the way. My favorite little white dress is from Petal + Pup and you can use my code: ASHLEYBEARY for a discount on their entire website.

First and foremost, Robert and I want to give a huge thank you to Toyota for sending us to the 2020 Taxslayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, FL. You all know I drive a Jeep and Robert drives a Chevy but after this past week driving the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 has completely won us over! Aside from the gorgeous exterior this car had all of the bells and whistles you could possibly need and was so spacious inside! A few of my favorite features about this car was the huge moon roof, the remote keyless entry system with the push to start, and the day and night rear view mirror/camera. We were absolutely spoiled for a week with this car and it was a very sad day when we had to turn it back in!
During the #ToyotaTailgate experience we were able to look at the new Tacoma and Tundra trucks and Robert was super torn. He is definitely going to be in the market for a new truck soon and has had his eye on both of these options so it was perfect timing. We could not have had a better tailgate experience – we had the cutest set up, best barbecue in town, and our seats were so close to the field!! We were ultimately pulling for the underdogs (Indiana University) to win and they were up until the last quarter of the game which was so tough to watch! Meeting all of the Toyota employees was such a pleasure and they made sure everything was such a fun and easy breeze for us that weekend. I am so thankful to be a part of the Toyota family and I couldn’t recommend a better car brand to keep you safe on the roads!
I hope you enjoyed this review and definitely leave a comment with any questions you have about the car or experience!
