Jennifer Green

I blog at Life In The Green House, Green because it's our last name, not because of a reduced carbon footprint. I started blogging to keep everyone up-to-date once my daughter arrived and it has since become much more. In essence the blog is a snapshot of our life, an extension of my need to talk all day long. I'm saved by His grace, a wife and mother, incurably southern, blonder than nature intended and a lover of all things caffeinated. 

5 on Friday

I’m linking up with the 5 on Friday crew today! I’m looking forward to a very special Easter weekend with my family. I love the reminder Easter weekend brings, and I am thankful for the ultimate sacrifice each and every day, but it’s nice to take a weekend to celebrate the resurrection ....more

Changing Table Organization

I haven’t quite finished the nursery. Allen painted the monogram for above the changing table last night, I ordered a rug yesterday (nothing like waiting until the last minute), and I’ll still need to order a canvas for a big blank spot above the chest once we have newborn photos taken.

spring style with riffraff

I’m back with another Riffraff post, to share a few of my favorite tops I’ve recently acquired from my favorite clothing site. They’re here just in time for spring and just in time for me to transition from maternity to non-maternity wear. But, let’s be honest, I’ve been wearing non-maternity from Riffraff nearly this entire time ....more

wednesday thoughts

I’m up a few hours later than normal writing this post and having a cup of decaf (why do I even bother?) coffee. I have a doctors appointment this morning, so I have a sub for the first half of the day. I’m thinking I could get used to this leisurely morning thing ....more

Showering Baby Boy

I had a beautiful baby shower this past Saturday to celebrate our sweet baby boy. The countdown is on around here, and we’re less than three weeks away from his scheduled arrival date. It seems like a million years in some ways, but I know I’ll blink and be getting my things ready to check into the hospital ....more
