Baby Boy Ritt Nursery Inspiration

Baby Boy Nursery Inspiration

We had our anatomy scan this week and were so incredibly happy to learn that Baby Ritt #2 is growing well and looking very healthy! We were also convinced it was another girl so when the tech told us it was a boy, we were shocked (in the best way). I came home and caught up on work after traveling for the second week in a row but couldn’t resist putting together my first moodboard for his new room.

We’re converting our guest room to baby brother’s room as we like to tell Ainsley, and while this doesn’t have all of the little details, I love how it’s coming together. My friend sent me a photo with car prints and then I fell in love with this campaign dresser from Crate & Kids so it came together pretty quickly. I remember spending months on Ainsley’s nursery moodboard so I’m surprised I’m feeling so sure of a design direction this time around. It helps that I’m not Googling every single baby product known to mankind to figure out what I need although I do have a list going of items we need/want for the second. I’m excited to share more these next few months!

I also couldn’t help buy our little guy two new outfits and a few onesies. I thought this linen button down, shorts and boat shoes were perfect for a summer outing with our family of four.

    Love the campaign style dresser! We got one for my daughter’s room and ended up with this one (for a fraction of the price and very happy with the quality) : https://www.target.com/p/baby-relax-miles-campaign-dresser-white/-/A-50909121

    Comes in blue as well!

  • I’ve never talked about cookie dough so much, but in the last two weeks, it has been a hot topic in my DMs. And honestly, the chats with you have been a welcome distraction ☺️ Thank you for supporting my frozen cookie dough consumption especially when it’s before 10 a.m.  You guys are the best. I figured I’d post the details here so it’s easier to find when you’re ready to do some baking! I use the @nestletollhouse recipe (because it’s the best, obviously). I swap the 2 eggs for 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and recently learned about toasting the flour for 5 minutes at 350°. I mix everything as usual, chill for a bit and use my cookie dough scooper to put them in a glass container before they go straight to the freezer. I made it 30 years without swapping ingredients or toasting the flour, so zero judgement here if you just follow the regular recipe. There’s kind of a lot more going on in the world to worry about, so you do you. Some FAQs: I don’t think the applesauce changes the taste, and I have not baked these to know how they turn out. I’m on a strict frozen cookie dough diet over here 🤰🏼 Enjoy!

  • I’ve gotten a few questions about if I’m getting dressed every day while working from home. I’m not sure about you, but we’re doing a lot of video chats for our meetings which I actually love - it keeps people more engaged and productive plus it’s fun to see your colleagues. The short answer is it’s a mix - some days I just switch to a comfy yet presentable top but don’t throw on any makeup and some days I put on a fun outfit and even throw on some mascara. It depends on what my work calendar looks like and if I’m presenting during a meeting. But just to be very clear, slippers are a required part of my WFH wardrobe. I’ve also thrown the seasons out the window and am wearing whatever I want from my closet. http://liketk.it/2Mizd #liketkit @liketoknow.it #27weeks
  • Staying home this weekend and slowly getting ready for baby brother’s summer arrival. I haven’t quite been able to articulate my thoughts lately because they’re all over the place. There aren’t enough thank yous for our essential workers and my heart aches for those whose big plans have changed - from weddings to families working through IVF and so, so much more. 
I don’t take it for granted that my job right now is to stay home and do the best I can to work from home and take care of Ainsley. That doesn’t mean that’s not hard in very different ways. I’m trying my best to recharge on the weekends but also want to work on my children’s book, blog and spend quality time with my family as opposed to counting down to the next nap or bedtime. Not to mention catch up on work that I didn’t get to during the week. While we have more time at home, it’s certainly different time. 
All this to say, we’re all just trying our best right now and feeling a lot of feels. If working out makes you feel better, great! If a new show on Netflix brings you joy, also great. Same with tackling a list of house projects because it gives you a sense of control (hello, purging all of our closets again) or tackling new recipes in the kitchen. Do what you need to do. For me that’s enjoying some chocolate chip pancakes with my family this morning and making a fresh batch of cookie dough to freeze for the week. What are you most looking forward to today?
