    Kitchen Tour Updated 

    In the beginning of my blogging journey, I wrote a post about our kitchen. Since that time, a few updates have happened in the space. The original kitchen post. That post has more construction pictures and our original fixtures.  The updates aren’t anything crazy, I updated the pendants ( farmhouse basket shade DIY tutorial) and we have switched the barstools twice. Ironically these small-ish changes have made a huge difference.  Our original upholstered barstools were sure to be destroyed by my kids. I mistakenly thought upholstered barstools could survive children. Wrong. Before total destruction, we decided to move them to the lake house mainly because they had backs. Our barstools…

    Old Navy 

    The Old Navy 30% off sale ends today! I did a quick try on of some of my fall favorites. These are all pieces that are not maternity but still work.  This jacket comes in eight colors! They are so cute, and each color is so good it’s hard to choose! This is the Creme Caramel. Excuse my hot mess hair I couldn’t get it to chill out as I tried stuff on.  This dress will look great not pregnant too. I do like having pieces that function as both. Dresses that don’t define your waist like a shift dress are great to try while pregnant.  I didn’t have a…

    Fall Home Tour 

    Welcome to my fall home tour!  Fall is by far my favorite season. I love the trend in recent years of using different colors in fall decor than just the traditional organge, red, and yellow. I have been absolutely loving contrasting cooler tones; blue, purple, and teal are my go to right now.  Our porch is the tone setter for the house. I am trying to keep all our holiday decor within limits this year since I’m preggos and tired. Easy to put out and easy to pack away.  I usually like making garlands and adding lots of natural elements. I always kill mums, and fast.  This year, I decided…

    Fall Maternity Staples

Now in the third pregnancy, I have some ability to…

    Fall Console Table

    The fall is starting to creep in, here in Georgia. Don’t get me wrong, the cool mornings melt way to blistering hot afternoons, but, it’s that morning preview that justifies dusting off pumpkins and cardigans.  This post is sponsored by Christmas Tree Shops And That.

It was a fun project and I absolutely loved the line. See that post here. Flash to now, I have teamed up for a second time to show y’all just how awesome The Grainhouse line still…

    Office Organiztion Challenge 

    At any given moment our home office may look like a mail truck crashed and exploded all its contents into it. So. Much. Mail.  We moved out of our last office at the end of a lease with plans to begin building a new one right away. Unfortunately, all sorts of wrenches kept popping up. Here we still sit, office-less.  This post is sponsored by Christmas Tree Shops And That. Post may contain affiliate links.   If you’ve been following my stories, we are in the process of fixing this, but, in the meantime, work still has to happen. I set up a temporary at-home office, quickly and without much…

    Playroom Update: Herringbone Planks & Faux Brick Wall 

    Wallpaper has become my favorite way to update a space. I used these wood wallpaper planks for a project in our dining room and was in love with how it turned out. You can see the dining room built in update here.  Our playroom started very pink. You can see my first post on our playroom here. I wanted to update for the baby boy we’ll be welcoming in January. Less pink, more neutral was my goal.  I decided to use the remaining material I had leftover to do a little accent area in our playroom. I got these PLAY letters from Hobby Lobby to finish it out.  To start…
