A Peek at My Plants

It’s been warm out recently, which has me dreaming of flowers and garden goodies…but I know it’s too early, so I had to satisfy myself with some indoor gardening. If you recall, one of my goals for the year was to add more house plants to our house…and keep them alive. A couple weekends ago, […]

Short And Sweet – A Glimpse at Our Valentine’s Day Decor

Just stopping in to share a few quick photos of our Valentine’s mantle decor. I have to say that switching out the chalkboard and such is something I enjoy doing, even if I don’t have much time for other projects these days. This is what it looked like before. I bet you can’t guess why […]

Sweet Treats! Free Foodie Valentine Printable Cards

I know it’s not Freebie FriYAY….but it is the week before Valentine’s Day…which means it’s time to stand in a crowded aisle of the grocery store searching for the perfect card (that doesn’t exist) wishing there was an easier way to tell your special someone just how much you care about them. We’re not big […]

Freebie FriYAY – Do Stuff Today

Today marks the first of a fun series I’ve been wanting to start for awhile – Freebie FriYAY! In non-excited “girl speak,” that means you get something free on Fridays. Woot woot! (Sorry, I relapsed into excited girl speak again. Oops. #SorryNotSorry? Ok, enough with the silliness and on to the details! I’m not a […]

New Clipboard Prints for Winter

Last week I shared our simple winter mantle with the new chalkboard quote. (If you missed it, click here.) Today, I’m FINALLY getting around to sharing the prints I picked for the clipboard wall this month. I don’t switch these out every month, but I try to do it every now and then, just for […]

Bright Thoughts For Bleak Days

I know the gray, dreary days tend to drag on for me. Luckily I now have a little bundle of sunshine around the house every day. I also finally got around to switching up our chalkboard on the mantle for something kind of fun for winter. After I took down all the Christmas stuff, it’s […]

Weekend Rewind: Snow Surprise Edition

Well, it’s cold. I shouldn’t be surprised, but last week, I was taking Will for a walk/jog in the stroller and now it’s 2 degrees outside. Literally.  And, we woke up yesterday morning to a snow surprise. This weekend was a good one. We ran some errands Friday night and I finished up returning a […]

How We Did on Our 2015 Goals

It’s time to go through our list of goals for last year and take a final inventory of how well we did. I’m pretty pleased, overall, and excited to start on some new things in 2016! 1. Develop a weekly cleaning routine. I have a scheduled set, but I usually miss at least one day […]

Outtakes from Will’s First Christmas

It seems like the last month was a whirlwind of people, parties and presents. Also, unfortunately, tissues, coughing, stuffy noses. In keeping with his mother’s notorious ability to be sick on Christmas, Will got RSV a week before the bulk of our holiday events. Thankfully he didn’t have to be admitted to the hospital for […]

Cozy For Christmas

I know we’ve been a little MIA, but we’ve been getting ready for Christmas in our little corner of the world over here. And…we’ve been sick. Why are we always sick? Will and I are still struggling to get well before we get into the biggest of the celebrations, but we’re hopeful we’ll feel better […]

FREE–FRIENDS Trifle Thanksgiving Printable

Because it’s soon going to be Thanksgiving, and because we’re friends, and because Wyatt and I are rewatching all the FRIENDS Thanksgiving episodes in preparation for this wonderful holiday, I created the following Thanksgiving printable for you all: In case you’re in need of a laugh, or haven’t seen this episode (the horror!), here’s the […]

Up! Up! And Away! – DIY Nursery Mobile

A post about the nursery mobile! Super late, but it still turned out super sweet and it’s worth sharing with you all. I knew I wanted a cloud mobile because I liked the idea of looking up and dreaming about the sky, so I pinned a bunch for inspiration. I found the ones with balloons even […]

The Dining Room Chairs Are Done—Finally!

Because it’s been a week since I teased about our dining room chairs being done and I still don’t have our last DIY post on that ready (Will and I have been sick all week so not much has been accomplished (other than lots of snuggling and sniffling, and some crying on his part), I […]

11 Years Ago…

Lately I’ve been amazed by life. (If mushy-gushy stuff isn’t your thing, you might want to skip this post. However, there are some gems of old photos at the bottom…) How amazing is it that 11 years ago today, sixteen-year-old-Wyatt asked fifteen-year-old-me to be his girlfriend while we were huddled up together on a school […]

Babies Don’t Keep ~ FREE PRINTABLE

Hi guys, sorry we’ve been totally MIA. We’re soaking up the time and enjoying our little one as much as we can, and he’s keeping us busy, too. Now that Wyatt is back at work, I’m on full time momma duty at home, not to mention I’m starting back to work myself as I try […]

Will’s Birth Story – Part 2

For Part 1 of this story, see this post. We had arrived at the hospital  at 4:30 pm and spent an hour or so getting checked in and set up with the monitors before being admitted. My doctor was out of town, which I knew ahead of time, but was relieved that the on-call doctor was my […]

New Clipboard Prints – A Fun Roundup of My Summer Favorites!

Another fun little update to share today – new prints for our living room clipboard wall! Since I didn’t design any of these myself, I figured I’d just go ahead and refer to the awesome designers where you can print these yourself for free. I don’t own any rights to these, nor am I going […]

Beanie’s Nursery – Reveal Post

I think we’ve now shared all the projects we completed for the nursery…at least the ones we completed before Beanie’s arrival. So, that means it’s time for a full reveal post full of photos! If you remember, we started from here: Of course, before that, it looked like this: And don’t forget the purple and […]

Baby Talk on the Chalkboard

*Guess what? We have a son! Posts are likely to be fewer and far between in the coming days and weeks, but we have a few stored up to share from before our little addition to the family arrived. Can’t wait to share more details with you soon!) Since Beanie didn’t come before, or even […]

26 Years Young

On Tuesday, Wyatt and I celebrated my birthday, which was wonderful. I wondered if I’d be sharing my birthday from this year forward (my due date was Wednesday) but Beanie decided to keep hanging out in there, so I guess not. I even had Wyatt take a couple photos so I can remember how big […]

Wonderful Walls + Free “Hello Sunshine” Nursery Printable

I finally got around to adding artwork to the walls in the nursery. I have to say, I wasn’t sure that would happen before Beanie arrives, but three cheers for a few final pushes, right? Over the crib, I wanted to create a little gallery of some of my favorite prints. Some, I had been […]

Four Years Later

Yesterday, Wyatt and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. It wasn’t all that fancy of a celebration, especially considering the “party” started with me having a doctor’s appointment to check on Beanie and then having to run errands, which made me late getting back home. We talked about going to Hereford House for dinner, a […]

A Welcoming Wreath

One of the craft projects I did this weekend was making a new wreath for our front door for the summer. Because, last year, my spring wreath stayed up until Thanksgiving. Oops.   Instead of doing a summer-themed wreath, I went with a “Welcome Baby” design. No worries, baby isn’t actually here yet, I’m just […]

Weekend Update: 4th of July Fun

Well, like the rest of the country, we spend the weekend celebrating Independence Day. Wyatt had Friday off of work, which is always really nice, even though I had to work most of the day. I’m trying to finish up a bunch of assignments before Beanie’s arrival into the world and I need all the […]

Weekend Rewind: Fresh and Frozen Food Edition

This weekend, we harvested a bunch more blueberries from our garden. I can’t even tell you guys how excited I am. Also, I can tell you that I’m super pregnant. 🙂 We got to enjoy fresh garden goodies on our plates, too. Also, on Saturday, we had some friends come up and we tackled a […]

Halfway Hopes for Our 2015 Goals

Well, June is nearing July, and that means we’re due to report on how we’re doing at the halfway point for the year on our resolutions and goals for 2015. 1. Develop a weekly cleaning routine. I decided to wait and try and start this after the baby arrives, as it will be a lot […]

Weekend Rewind: Babymoon Edition

Okay, so this weekend wasn’t really a big vacation like most people classify as babymoons, but we did sneak away for a few days to relax. We spent some time in our home away from home (AKA: Branson) and did a whole lot of nothing. For those of you not familiar with the term, a “babymoon” […]

Our Guestroom Headboard Reveal

Ok, we’ve been teasing long enough, it’s time to show you our handiwork in transforming our guest room from something that was basically just a storage area for hand-me-down furniture, to a room I considered sleeping in myself the first night it was finished. For a refresher on how we built and upholstered the headboard […]
