Weekend Rewind – Memorial Day Memories

This weekend was a breath of fresh air. After a rough week of Will being sick while I struggled to meet work deadlines, I was ready for a little break. Not to mention, it’s been raining for weeks and weeks, which gave me a serious case of spring fever. We were able to spend time […]

Bedroom Style Shopping with Kirkland’s

A few weeks ago, Kirkland’s reached out to us to see if we wanted to do some style “window shopping.” Because I like to shop, and because I’ve been feeling totally stuck on finishing off our master bedroom, I was excited to spend a few minutes browsing their website for ideas. I wanted something that […]

Shakespeare Love – WEE Rascals Sponsored Post + Giveaway

Time for a little mid-week quiz…who here knows what I majored in in college? Did you say Communications? That would be correct! But if you said English, that would also be correct! It’s no secret I’m a reader, and when it comes to the classics, I’m a fangirl for Twain, Jane Austen, and Shakespeare for sure. And, […]

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, […]

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 […]

If you missed it, I shared the full reveal of our nursery, here. Now it’s time to share our cost details! One thing that’s always important to us when redoing a room is to focus on keeping costs as low as possible. This time, we were just finishing a huge kitchen renovation, trying to build […]

Rock-A-Bye Baby

You guys, we have a rocking chair for the nursery now. It’s starting to feel like a room that we could actually use. To back up a bit, I have been shopping for a rocking chair for awhile now. I think I started seriously looking when I was about 10 weeks pregnant, pinning possibilities to […]

Crib Notes

Well, guys, we officially have a crib for Beanie to sleep in…sorta. Well, it’s true we have a crib, and the crib is even put together, but we still need to get a mattress. To back up a little bit, let me just talk about out crib shopping experience a little bit. I started looking […]

Treats and Tricks: The Guestroom Window Update

One more post about guest room updates before the big bed reveal..this time to talk about the window treatments we went with for this room. For starters, we put the window blinds back up.

Meet Rhonda 2.0

Ok, we haven’t officially settled on a name, but I wanted to go ahead and share how we spent last night… Yep, we said goodbye to good old Rhonda the Honda and replaced her with the same car…only 19 years newer. We didn’t get a brand new one. It’s a 2009 Accord, but it’s quite […]

A New Home for Stevie…the TV

One of our home goals for the year was to find a new TV stand. You already know we didn’t be crossing every item off our list this year because the kitchen project really took up a lot more time than we had planned. You can read that recap here. But, after several online searches, […]
