Lets Talk // A little Update

Hey friends! WOW this month has flown by. Hazel will be 5 weeks tomorrow! There really isn't a whole lot more going on in my life these days other than this girl, so naturally I'm filling my Sunday update all about her. Being a mom is wonderful, exhausting, fulfilling, and...exhausting, but my heart is so full. It's funny, because I'm really not doing a lot, but it's freaking tiring, and the lack of sleep doesn't help ;) I'm learning to take naps, I've never been a nap person, but that's quickly changing. 

I made this little video from our first 2 weeks with Haze, Dan had the two weeks off, so this time was so special. I'm trying my best to film little every day snippets with her because I really want to keep making little videos to capture her early days, I mean, home videos can't become a thing of the past! This song is extra special because it was played during the ceremony at our wedding as I walked down the aisle!

I recently updated my personal blog as well, it's not finished, and probably won't be for a while because free time is precious these days, but I'm going to be posting lots of daily snippets over there >> theklennersblog.com

I hope you're having an amazing Summer!

A Month of Beaches // Ikea Hack Beach Bag

We picked up this pretty seagrass bag at Ikea last month for $5! I've been on the look out for a big bag like this, they're perfect for loading up with blankets, snacks & drinks, and taking to the beach or park! I love this yarn I picked up at Michaels, it reminds me of sorbet, perfect for a beach bag! This DIY is also perfect for a beach day. Lindsay and I took it down to Blaine and sat on a blanket in the sun for a few hours, it was so relaxing. 

Check out the Ikea hack blanket (shown below) post on the Minnetonka blog as well! (link here).

You'll only need 4 things, it's so simple, a straw bag, we used the Nipprig Beach Bag from Ikea, yarn, an embroidery needle, and scissors! you can really go anywhere with this, if you want to do a big pattern, on one side of it, or little triangles, hearts, or X's all over! 

When you get to the handle part, go through the handle with the needle, instead of around the top.

Yay! All ready for a Summer of beaching <3
