Our Play Room

After living in this home for almost a year and a half now, we FINALLY got to putting together the extra room off the kitchen and living room. When we first moved in, we thought maybe we would make it a mud room, a man cave, or an office. But when it came to the craziness of moving and getting pregnant, that room soon became our storage area for packages, baby shower gifts, shoes, and extra things we couldn’t find space for just yet. It was kind of just our dropping grounds and a MESS to be honest…

My Minted Art Prints

When Al and I moved into our home, our first priority when it came to ‘home purchases’ was the main furniture. I’m actually laughing as I type this because we had complications with our dining table and still don’t have one…and that seems like it should be a piece of ‘main furniture’ haha! But as we filled our kitchen and living room, it didn’t feel quite complete without filling up some of the empty wall space…

Tips For Styling Your Bar Cart

I FINALLY got myself a bar cart and this is an item I have been searching for for about 2 years! I haven’t been able to find one that matches our style AND is in our budget – it’s been quite the struggle. We wanted black, (or close to black), and every one we found was $400+…until I stumbled across this one on eBay!

What I love about the bar cart trend in homes is that you can really style your cart HOWEVER you’d like. They serve so many purposes…

Where I’m Shopping For Furniture and What We’ve …

Exactly a week ago today was our first night in our new house! We have been here a week and although I do absolutely love our new house – we feel like we spent the first week ‘glamping’ out here haha. We sold mostly all our furniture with our old house, so we moved in with maybe 3-4 things and luckily our new mattress got delivered the day before we moved in so we’ve had a mattress on the floor to sleep on. But our appliances got delayed, we actually just got them a day ago, so we spent basically the first week with no fridge, freezer, washer or dryer and kept a cooler in the garage with my coffee creamer in it so I could still have my morning coffee. Dedication. I also have spent the past 24 hours…

Moving Update Plus Some Tips

Al and I decided to move super last minute as most of you here know. We weren’t seeking a new house or building, the opportunity just came our way. All that said, these past few weeks have been absolutely INSANE prepping our house for a move. Our current house has no garage but has a basement, so our basement has become a hoarder’s paradise…stuff everywhere haha. We rarely go down there and anytime I want to ‘hide’ something…down it goes. For those of you who know me personally, you know I’m very ‘type b’ aka not organized, not a planner, etc.  Every year of being a wifey I’m trying to improve in these categories  All that said, when we decided we were moving…I made a vow to myself that I would be a lot more organized in our new house. (I’m actually going slightly crazy and have all these fun organization ideas haha we will see how many of them I actually do). I know that as we bring everything we own over to a new house, things will get super messy and be all over the place, so I started some simple tasks in our current house that will make our move a little easier…
