Back to School Essentials

We started back to school 3 weeks ago and it’s been a whirlwind. Getting everyone up and moving in the mornings, hurrying home to get in some play time with mommy, cooking dinner, then getting ready for bed, and some adult time each night is exhausting! But I love my job, the kids love their […]

Laundry/Mudroom Makeover

About a year and a half ago, we built in a mudroom storage bench area. We use it daily and love having a place to put our shoes on and toss our bags as we walk in the door. I recently gave it a fresh coat of paint as it’s been showing some wear and […]

Wallpapering our Half Bathroom

Hi everyone! I’ve had a long blog break and am back with lots of great projects to share! With the addition of our sweet Bennett in November, maternity leave, the business of the end of the school year and adjusting our evening routines to sneak in workouts had left little time to blog.

We love the size and wanted some contrast from the white cabinets when we originally designed it but the color of the stock Ikea cabinets wasn’t ideal and we wanted to add a little more character to it. […]

Christmas House Tour

I absolutely love decorating for Christmas. It’s been especially fun since we’ve been in our new house and I start thinking about it as Thanksgiving nears. We decorated the day after Thanksgiving but with our newest family member here, it’s been a bit of a challenge getting pictures taken of a clean house to share […]

Neutral Baby Boy Nursery

With the arrival of our little man happening any day now {woohoo!}, it’s time I share his sweet nursery. It’s been finished for about a month now but my lack of energy/time has prevented me from sharing it until now. We kept it very soft and neutral, as is the rest of our house, and […]

Antique Hutch

On one of Mike’s days off in July we decided to take a family antiquing trip. Molly actually loves to go to antique shops, funny enough. She loves digging through all that old stuff and actually pulls out some good finds. The shop owners all love her because she will find something and say, “Mommy, […]
