With very few exceptions, I'm done shopping for winter clothes after December. And let's call a spade a spade - January 1 to Easter is just a black hole of waiting on the warmer weather to appear, which is plenty of time to stock your spring and summer wardrobe. I wanted to let you in … Continue reading What I’m Thrifting: Spring 2018
I think one of the reasons I love Christmas is that the entire month is a party. Ya girl loves a party. Ya girl also loves getting dressed up for a party (or for a Tuesday, but that's neither here nor there). Ready to see some THRIFTED outfit and party looks that will get you through … Continue reading FIVE Looks For Any & Every Holiday Event
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.
Goodness, life gets busy... especially this time of year! My theory is that it's partly because everyone is throwing festivals and football parties like it's a blissful 68 degrees outside. We go because "Fall!" and that's what you're supposed to do, yet we all stand in the heat and melt because it still feels like the inside … Continue reading Updates!
I am not one of those people who can get away with regular clothes disguised as maternity wear. I say this with all sincerity..."that must be so nice". Not this girl. My hips and booty start speaking Kardashian the minute I see two blue lines. The best is when people try to put a positive spin on this aspect … Continue reading Maternity Outfit Ideas for the Transition to Fall
We have rooms done. Like, I can walk in and not immediately think "I need to do X, Y, and Z". The best (unexpected) part about this is that our house is starting to feel like home. Up until now, I have felt like we were working on someone else's building. Now, when I walk in and … Continue reading Before & After: THREE Room Reveals!
It's been awhile since I took the time look through things other than housewares at a thrift store. Partly because we need "house things", but also because normal clothes won't fit/aren't fitting this bump for much longer. However, Mac and I had some time to kill before lunch Friday so we poked around most of Goodwill. Take a … Continue reading Thrift Haul!
I headed out to the Gas Lamp Antique Mall yesterday to kick off the week! I keep a running list of "always looking for" and antique markets are a great place to find unique pieces. Several of the things I am always keeping my eyes peeled for: Trays: Big, small, wicker, glass, wood, you name it... I love … Continue reading Mondays are for Antiquing!
This week has been full of progress! When I look at the grand scheme, it's easy to get discouraged because sometimes it seems likes 1 step forward and 3 steps back. Most of my reno time is limited to when our son naps or after he goes to bed at night, so some days it feels like it's moving … Continue reading Baby Steps!
I am a list person. Always have been. My mom says she quit giving me a verbal schedule of our plans for the day when I was about 5 because if it didn't go exactly as planned, I was destined for a come-apart. I'm a bit more flexible these days, but it is rare that I don't … Continue reading Downstairs To-Do’s.
