I’ve been waiting until the light was just right to take a picture of our entryway fall deco. I LOVE this little nook and the chance to decorate a little something extra that people can see when they first walk into our home. I also forgot to take a quick pic of the little bit

Jon and I got just a little stir crazy while we were hunkered down for Hurricane Harvey. We decided to clean and decorate for fall while we were waiting around. (Jon was so, so excited for this fun chore.) I’ll let the pictures do the talkin’ here. My sister-in-law sent me some great links for

Chicken + Dumplings & A Little Life Lately

chicken and dumplings

If you’re like me, when you hear Chicken + Dumplings, you think of the elementary cafeteria and the ‘mystery’ that would be slopped onto your plate and called Chicken + Dumplings. I had some friends who LIVED for Chicken + Dumpling Day. I was NOT one of those people. I dreaded that day. The soggy

Life Lately + A New Book Rec

Whew! What a week we’ve had so far. Corey’s getting over some bad allergies + rotavirus (grossest freaking thing ever), so we’ve been in the house A LOT this week. I’ve been trying to contain the germs and clean as much as I can. I’ve also been trying not to go insane because I’ve been

I’m suuuuuper pumped because we are another step closer to being [finally] moved into our new home! Yes, we may have moved in a mere 11 months ago. Yes, we still have a lot left to do somehow. BUT I am enjoying staring at these lovely new ladies that are in our living room. They’re

A Fabulous Fourth + Some Fun New Deco

fourth of july

Well I can finally say that I’ve been to a block party. I’m 30, so I’d say it’s about time! Growing up, we’d have a few neighbors who we’d hang out with, but this Fourth of July was like nothing I’d experienced before! We were invited by some very sweet neighbors to hang at their

Scenes from the Weekend

Scenes from the Weekend

We had a very low key weekend since we’re all still recovering from being sick. It started with a very chill Friday morning, as you can see by Penny’s and Corey’s relaxed attitudes… We finalized decorating the little awning in our living room. I wanted something that was a little “natural” and still went with

A Family Trip + New Deco

a family trip

This past weekend, my mom and I went to New Mexico to celebrate my sweet cousin’s high school graduation. It was so great to see family and spend time at one of our favorite places in the world – the Hyatt Tamaya resort. The flight in was so surreal for me. I can’t remember the

PTL for Curtains and Ducks

home deco

Wooooooooowwwiiiiieeeee!!!! We’ve finally got curtains! Just a mere seven months after moving in, but we’ve got ’em. It was really tough to find curtains that were the right length, texture, color, fabric (better be machine washable, man), and price. We finally settled on these bad boys at good ole Target. For our very tall part
