  • Katie loves these splat mats to go under the space where kids eat. Aren't they super cute? They actually go with decor in your home! 
Splat Mat. Cute and keeps food from your little ones' trays from getting on the floor.



Before I get going, I wanted to take a second to thank all of you who stopped by with your prayers and well wishes for our family on Monday. I feel so blessed by this big, beautiful blogging community. Oh, and I realized that I forgot to say that we'll be expecting our little "Pat" sometime around 07 January 2013, or if my husband had his way, sometime before the end of 2012. We'll see, Husband, we'll see.

Anyway, without further ado....

When the girls were born we were given a $50 gift certificate to Pottery Barn Kids. It took me a really long time to decide how to spend it, I wanted to get something practical and useful, because if you've ever shopped Pottery Barn Kids----$50 doesn't go very far.

I decided on the Large Canvas Floor Tote. At the time, the girls' toys were being kept in the living room, so I was pleased that the brown polka dot design blended with our decor.

A bonus, if you're interested, I noticed that Pottery Barn Kids does have these totes on sale this week, so your $50 gift card will go a bit further than normal.

I have to tell you-----these things are HUGE! When we first got the tote, we didn't have that many toys, but now, it's full, and let me tell you----it holds a lot. The girls thought it was hilarious that their mama was making such a big mess. But it did serve a purpose. Here's a size comparison for you (the girls are about 37.5 inches tall:

Ah! I do love organizing the chaos just a little bit!

Can't wait to see what you're loving this week!

I was about to comment, "Wow! I JUST saw this on Pinterest!"

But then I realized it was you who pinned it. ;)

And that might be my signal it's time for bed. ;)

January 7th! That's awfully close to January 5th...which was a super good day to have a kiddo (or two). Of course I could be a little biased. :)

Continued prayers for you, Julia!!!

Oh my goodness, that is huge! I love it. I may need one of these. I do love something about containers to contain the chaos! Thanks for sharing this fabulous find!
