Yesterday was the epitome of new motherhood. We spent Christmas weekend with family, traveling to and from different houses to celebrate. By the time Monday rolled around, I was exhausted and thought I was coming down with the flu. I think I was just very tired because it never turned into anything, thankfully. But I [...]

Changing Table Upcycle

Changing Table Upcycle

If you've learned anything from me over the last couple years, it's probably that I like white distressed furniture and it is extremely hard to find already finished. There is plenty of white furniture with no distressing and plenty of off white or cream with distressing and I even found a few bright white distressed [...]

We had our maternity photos done 2 weeks ago and I am beyond thrilled with how they turned out! Of course, they were shot by my good friend, Janine, of Janine Soltman Photography, and we shot them at Kruger's Farm on Sauvie Island. I will do a full post of all the gorgeous photos soon, [...]

DIY Spa Bathtub Tray

DIY Spa Bathtub Tray

I've been wanting to do this project for a while. Especially because I've been spending so much more time in the bathtub these last few months. I wanted the spa-like relaxation but, truth be told, I also wanted a place to set my laptop so I could get some blog work done while I'm unwinding. [...]

Nesting has officially set in...I'm feeling to pressure of the timeline and that this little munchkin is only 14 weeks away. Man...when I write it down like that, it seems even closer! I really haven't done much in the nursery yet other than getting the crib, a light fixture (which is currently sitting on the [...]

So it's been a month since I've posted 🙁 #1 I can't believe it has been that long! #2 That also means that this pregnancy is moving along insanely fast! In just 1 week I will already be 24 weeks!! I'm starting to panic about all the things I haven't even begun to tackle in [...]

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the amazing, hard-working mamas out there! I hope you all enjoyed a day of relaxation, pampering and spending quality time with your kiddos. I started this project as something completely different...I was searching for DIY floor lamp ideas and came across a flower pot stand idea on Pinterest instead. My goal [...]

I'm back!!! It has been SO long since I've posted! I'm so happy to be back and have all sorts of great content planned for the next few weeks. Since I've been gone, hubby and I went to Hawaii on a little getaway. The trip was absolutely INCREDIBLE and we fell in love with the [...]

DIY Holiday Gift Wrap

DIY Holiday Gift Wrap

I don't know what's happening this year. I have been in retail for 10 years and have always had a strong immune system, getting maybe 1 cold per year that was not severe and pretty easy to get over. This year, it's not even Christmas and I'm already on my second cold of the season! [...]

My first cold of the season...and I am not a happy camper. I hate being sick because it makes me feel so unproductive but I guess it is good for me to just slow down and rest for a while. I took it easy today and threw together this cute little faux planter centerpiece for [...]

As I type this, I am watching Fixer Upper re-runs and the episode where Joanna created a wall sign with the saying "today is a good day for a good day" is on! It's meant to be that I have this sign in my home and post it for you all. I've had this frame in my [...]

I finally bought a fiddle leaf fig tree!!!! I have been wanting one of these for SO long but have been nervous to pull the trigger because they are spendy and I have what you would call a black thumb as opposed to a green thumb. Now, I didn't re-pot the plant because as I [...]

I got to spend the day, Saturday, watching one of my good friends say "I do" to her best friend in the most beautiful backyard, DIY, setting. The look and feel of the ceremony and reception couldn't have been more perfect for Jessie & Kyle. This was also the wedding I was making the DIY [...]
