I took a pause from all things Christmas this past weekend to surprise my husband for his birthday! We spent a fun, relaxing weekend in downtown Nashville surrounded by some of our closest friends and family; he was very surprised, and we felt so blessed (and completely spoiled!) for three days. It was wonderful. I'm … Continue reading 12 Days of Blogmas: Dinner Party Inspiration
This past weekend, I hosted a little get together for the girls in my Sunday School class! When choosing the theme, I knew I wanted to do something girly... but that also felt like a treat. I had the idea to put together a brunch / flower arranging party! Just like the invite says, the … Continue reading Brunch n’ Blooms
Hey guys! Wanted to share a quick and easy project I tackled this past weekend... DIY Shelving! I am using them for plants (because #therearemany), but you could use these anywhere.

For example, our dining room used to be a formal living room... with no … Continue reading Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall.
Silly Truth: I've been waiting to blog this post because it's been cloudy outside, and I wanted good, sunny pictures of what we've done. Second Truth: You guys don't care about sunshine and just want to see the progress. So let's get to it! As of last week, we basically had a piano, one couch, … Continue reading Décor Extravaganza 2018
The hardwood installer comes next Monday, so we are movin' and shakin' to get the old floor demo'ed! My Hulk of a Husband ripped up the old floating floor in the dining room and office first. Then came the hard part: the foyer. We had that brick-like tile on top of a three inch mortar … Continue reading Demolition Derby
It's the start of a new year, and the start of a whole new (BIG) to-do list for the house! 2018 is going to bring some exciting and dramatic changes to our home, and I could not be more thrilled.
