Y’all. Some days… Mama said there’d be days like this. Ready for some vulnerability? Right now my kitchen is half-tiled and my clothes don’t fit. I’m washing bottles in a powder bathroom because I can’t walk to the sink, and the dishwasher is in the office. I am wearing black leggings in 90 degree weather because… Continue reading Days Like This.
In spite of having a newborn, we have been able to complete a few small projects around the house. Natalie is a very easy newborn (as far as newborns go), and my husband gets antsy without a to-do list! Last fall I found the top of a hutch at the thrift store for $10.

Someone recently said “I feel like I’m waiting for something that isn’t going to happen.” Sheesh. You and me both, sister. It’s hard to believe that in 4 more days (if not sooner), we will have another person in our family. In all of my free time, I managed to overestimate my Walmart grocery pick-up and… Continue reading Muffins, Outfits, and The Wait.

But, I have managed to come up with a few festive vignettes in each… Continue reading The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
When we started renovating in July, we knew we wanted to start with the master bedroom. There was/is SO much to be done in the house that waking up in a fresh space was important to us (as opposed to opening your eyes and just seeing “more work.”) Here is a reminder of what our bedroom… Continue reading Master Bedroom
I blogged here a few months ago about the nursery for Baby Girl (we are sooooo close to a name!). I have been wanting to make a floral mobile to go above her crib, and this week I found the time to start! Actually, that’s not entirely true. I was procrastinating and decided that playing with… Continue reading A Happy Friday, Indeed.
