DIY Chalkboard Sign

DIY Chalkboard Sign

Confession...I love chalkboards. Or, I love creating cute little works of art on chalkboards. Weird, I know. I have created some fun chalkboard signs for my mom's business and thought it was time I have one in my home. I created a new photo gallery wall in our living room and took down the old [...]

Gallery Wall

You know the best way to wake up early on a Tuesday morning? To the sound of your dog getting sick. I mean, nothing gets you to jump out of bed and on your feet faster. And then try going back to sleep after that. Two things that I thought would be an issue having [...]

DIY Herb Garden

DIY Herb Garden

I've wanted to have a vegetable garden for quite some time now. Lack of time is what stopped me before. Now that I have some (little) time on my hands, I thought this might be a good time to give it a shot. I waited a bit it to long though to work out all the [...]

Spring Décor Favorites

Spring Décor Favorites

I've been shopping up a storm lately. Ok, that's not really something new. I guess the difference is, I'm being very particular about the things I buy for the house. Only making a purchase for an item I've really thought about, searched it out and have a specific spot for it. In the past, I would just [...]

Nursery Side Table

Nursery Side Table

Landon is officially moved into the nursery! He has slept in his own room the last 3 nights. I'd like to say it's going well but...not so much. His first night was amazing, slept 8pm to almost 7am, only waking up twice for his pacifier. The last 2 nights and now today, however, have been [...]

I am so excited to FINALLY share this project with you all! I have been working on it for what feels like forever. Wait...you mean...having a baby will drastically change the amount of time in the day you have to accomplish things?!?! Case in point, I've been trying to write this blog post for 3 [...]

Nursery Crib

Nursery Crib

Someone contacted me asking about some of the furniture details in Landon's nursery and I realized that I never shared the finished crib! No time like the present... I remember sharing a while back that I was having trouble finding a crib that I liked. I wanted white distressed wood. Everything I was finding in [...]

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 [...]

Maternity Photos

Maternity Photos

I thought it would be fitting to share our maternity photos the week baby is due 🙂 Only 2 more days until due date...not a whole lot of action so far...hopefully he starts making some moves soon because this mama is getting uncomfortable! Of course our photos were shot by my amazingly talented friend, Janine, [...]

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 [...]
