Why I Decided to Try Stitch Fix…Again

Hey friends, I’m back with a little update on my Stitch Fix experiment. For the first post I wrote on the mail styling service, click HERE. As a refresher, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the service, Stitch Fix charges you a $20 styling fee and then sends five pieces in each box for you […]

A Cool Key – Wyatt’s Awesome Wooden 5th Anniversary Gift to Me

I wanted to share an awesome little project Wyatt and I sort of tag-teamed a couple of weeks ago that all started with his awesome wooden 5th anniversary gift to me. As a little backstory, when we were dating, Wyatt gave me an antique key after I mentioned I thought they were really cool. He picked […]

My First Stitch Fix – Is Stitch Fix For You?

Guys, I know I’m super behind the times when it comes to blogger trends so I wasn’t planning to blog about this, but I just got my first Stitch Fix box (and posted about it on Instagram) and I got so many questions, I figured it was worth a blog post. So, if you’re here just […]

A Day in the Life

Hi friends, happy weekend! I thought it would be fun to share a little glimpse into our day-to-day routine since we haven’t been doing any big projects lately. Plus, we use this little corner of the internet as a sort of journal of our lives, chronicling projects and trips and life milestones. So, I’m sharing photos […]

Feebie FriYAY – Loved & Lovely

Today’s #FreebieFriYAY is a reminder I need to hear daily. Or hourly.  Because I often don’t feel loved. Or lovely. Motherhood isn’t exactly the most glamorous job out there. I mean, unless you think yoga pants covered in baby drool and smeared vegetable puree, stained nursing tanks, old stretched out t-shirts, and three-day old hair […]

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 […]

Sweet Seats – ReDoing Our Dining Room Chairs

Our dining table chairs are finished! We already discussed the process of fixing up and painting the chairs, in this post, so you can go there to see all the steps up to this point. We finally got to Joann’s to buy fabric and we ended up going with a single option in a neutral color, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Will’s Birth Story – Part 1

You guys, it was hard. To be fair, I knew it would be hard. The labor part, that is. I had read the books and articles. I researched. We had taken classes. I knew labor would be hard. And it was. Still, I wasn’t at all prepared for the emotional turmoil I felt in the hours […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Fresh is Best: Painting the Basement Guestroom

A few weeks ago, I talked about painting the nursery a fresh, light gray. Similarly, we finally got the new basement guestroom painted. We used the exact same color because we got the paint for free (BOGO) and I figured it would be a nice, fresh, blank slate for the guest room. And, since it’s […]

A Quickie Scarf Solution

Not that we’ve had almost a week of spring weather, I’m starting to get the urge to clean everything in our house. One thing that’s been driving me particularly crazy is the back of our closet door. I’ve been using it to store both hoodies and scarves all winter and it’s getting a little, or […]

Our Pregnancy Story

We had our 20 week ultrasound today and are ecstatic to know Beanie is growing normally and is perfectly healthy. We know anything could still happen at any time but were super happy to get a little glimpse of our little one. And no, we didn’t find out if Beanie is a boy or girl. […]

Weekend Update: Valentine’s Edition

Well, our first Valentine’s weekend as a family of three (to be!) has come and gone. I didn’t feel wonderful, but we still enjoyed the time together. I even updated our chalkboard to help set the mood a bit for this lovey-dovey day. We had some friends come stay with us and took a day […]

It’s Time to Register – Sponsored Post

This post is #Sponsored by #TargetWedding, but the words and opinions are all our own.  It’s almost time for Valentine’s Day, which means everyone has roses and chocolates and fancy dates on the brain. Now that we have a baby on the way and several remodeling projects to finish up, date nights are hard to […]

Resolution Rewind 2014

Well, I know even before writing this post that we haven’t accomplished everything that was on our list for the year. But we did accomplish a few things that weren’t on the list, so I have to have some grace with ourselves as we weigh all the things we’ve done this year with all the […]

And now that we all know I have no patience…

Here we are, blogging failures lately. Sorry, guys. Not only has it taken us a LONG time to get this Q&A video filmed for you guys, we’ve been seriously slacking in the writing department lately with no new house or remodel updates to share. And as you’ll see in the video below, I’m not very […]

Adding Some Spice with Target for Thanksgiving – Sponsored Post

Congrats to our winner! Comment number 10! Winner has been notified and prize will be fulfilled by Target. This post is #Sponsored by #TargetWedding, but the words and opinions are all our own.  Even though we REALLY wanted to have our kitchen project totally done by Thanksgiving, which isn’t going to happen, I’m still excited […]

To-Do or Not To-Do: Free Printables for You!

Before, I shared my personal daily to-do list with you guys, HERE. Since then, I’ve revamped my design and had more printed up into little notebooks to help keep track of my daily tasks. I use these everyday and have found them to be really helpful for focusing my time on the most important tasks I have to do […]

Weekend Rewind: Leaf Peeping Edition

This weekend, Wyatt and I snuck off for a long weekend of glorious fall fun away from home. We had gorgeous fall weather the entire time, and despite Wyatt ending up with a cold, we had a great time just relaxing and not working on the kitchen.  And taking couch selfies using a new setting […]

10 Years Strong

Yesterday marked a fun milestone for Wyatt and I. We’ve now been together for 10 years total (dating and marriage years). Wowza. That’s over a third of my life! And just for fun, this photo was taken the day he asked me to be his girlfriend. 10 Years ago yesterday.   Since we had been […]

Weekend Rewind – Time Apart, Tulips, and Walktober Edition

I know we’ve been boring you with all our talk about tile, and I hate to say this, but there are still a couple posts coming on the subject, but one of them will be our reveal post (with all the grout and glory), but I wanted to take a break out of that and […]

Winding Down to the Last of the Summer Bucket List

Well guys, after the amazing fall weather we had this weekend, and the COLD! weather we had on Thursday and Friday of last week, it’s time to admit that fall is, most definitely, around the corner. Which means it’s time for a little check up on our Summer Bucket List and for one last push […]

Kitchen Gardening 101: It’s Going to Make a Mess

I tend to make a mess at most things I do. Kitchen gardening is no exception. Because of that, I tend to avoid this activity. (What? Never heard of kitchen gardening? It’s the way all the cool kids garden when it’s 100 degrees outside. You should look into it.) First up, I needed to replant […]

Savoring Summer: Cherry Tomato Tart Recipe

Guys, I’m going crazy over here…posting more recipes in the past couple of weeks than I had for the entire six months before this. (Like these cucumber chips and some spiked raspberry limeade.) I know I’m not a chef, nor is this a cooking blog, but I can’t help it. I’m just so stinkin’ excited […]

Seeing Savings

This post is sponsored by Firmoo Eyewear. I received a free pair of glasses in exchange for my review. All words and opinions are my own.  Hi all, just a quick announcement.  I got new glasses and I’m super enamored with them. A couple weeks ago, I was given the chance to try out *Firmoo, […]
