Nesting Story Blog 4 Easy Zero Waste Lifestyle Changes – Parenting Twins Article

It’s been over a month since Plastic Free July has ended and I am still trying to make simple and easy changes in my lifestyle to be as zero waste as possible. A lot of awareness has been made towards the zero waste movement and I am especially happy with the new Starbucks lids for their cold drinks (no more straws!). I have been trying to make easy zero waste swaps in my life lately and today I will be…

Rug Roundup – Parenting Twins Article

This post contains affiliate links. Rugs can really help ground a room and set the tone for the whole space, and I’ve rounded up several of my favorites below! A good rule to remember when choosing the size of your rug is: the bigger the better! A king-sized bed looks best with at least an 8×10 rug underneath; however, I personally prefer 9×12 if your room is big enough to allow it! Here’s a great graphic from www.nwrugs.com which can…

Yes, moving is a huge undertaking, but it’s also the day I found out I was pregnant with my first (and only to date) child.When I bought the house I had many grand ambitions for design and renovations for this square white box of a cookie cutter home. I now look back at those ambitions and…

Spring Cleaning My Home In 2019 – Parenting Twins Article

It’s that time of year again… time to start spring cleaning my home. Actually, I did a poll on Instagram recently and am realizing that I am one of the minority of people who actually leave these “extra” cleaning chores until the spring. But, it works for our family.

I love spring because it brings new life to my family and our home as I finally step outside after a Canadian winter hibernation. All of a sudden everywhere I look there are new home projects that I want to take on, but I have limited time and budget to do them all. The other problem is we are not certain that this is our forever home (we have some soul searching to do before the mortgage renewal is up).…

A Stunning Yet Simple Porch Makeover – Parenting Twins Article

I’m not sure what I love more, my outdoor or indoor living spaces. We’ve spent the last few years pouring ourselves into our backyard space, while the front of our house was left in the dust. Recently as I was sitting on the bench of our front porch, (the one purchase we had made for that space), watching our kids play on our driveway, and I looked around at the sparse, uninviting porch, I knew that it needed a makeover.…

The Great Pet Moms Controversy – Parents Article

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed a bit of a controversy last week, just before Mother’s Day. I posted a meme that generated some passionate responses, and for once it wasn’t about Trump or gun control or vaccinating your kids. This was about pet moms – more specifically, why they’re not actually moms. I know, I know, calm down. I heard all the comments, and this week on the podcast, I responded as best…
