Was anyone else obsessed with Winnie the Pooh as a kid?! It was by far my favorite cartoon and with the release of the movie, Christoper Robin this summer, I knew a group costume with all our favorite characters from the 100 acre woods would be perfect for this Halloween! Last year I partnered with Primary to create two dessert inspired DIY costumes that you can see here. I have to say this is one of my favorite projects of the year. How adorable are my friends babies?!
When we remodeled our house last summer the dining room was the only space we didn't touch. It's the first room you see when you walk in the front door and I wanted to give it more of a wow factor but was stumped on what to do. Any ideas I had were shot down because we had so many other projects going on with the kitchen, bathrooms, and closets - not to mention a baby on the way! Here we are about a year after wrapping up the big projects and I have the itch to finally give our dining room a much needed face lift
There might be record breaking temps all across the country but summertime screams outdoor dinner parties. We're heading to Colorado in a couple weeks and I'm so excited to sit out on the back deck for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I pulled together no fuss dinner party inspiration using items from Bed, Bath & Beyond just in case you have the itch to dine al fresco like me.
I've never met a theme I didn't like especially when it comes to summer entertaining! With Memorial Day this weekend, you might be tempted to decorate with traditional flag decor but I challenge you to think outside the box a little bit!
We came really close to tearing this porch down but I’m so glad we didn’t! Instead we gave it a much needed facelift and updated some furniture with the help of Tuesday Morning! I knew these blue chairs had to come home with me the minute I saw them in store. I’m so excited about the space and I know we’ll use it a ton this spring and summer!
This room is the definition of a labor of love! Between the Otomi stencil wall my mom and I painted or the countless yarn poms and tassels I made while counting down the final days of my pregnancy, this room was my favorite project yet!
I'm so excited to finally share the before and after of our kitchen remodel! This was our first time renovating and let me tell ya, watching HGTV does NOT mentally prepare you for a project like this haha! We learned a few lessons the hard way and today I'm sharing our biggest takeaways from the process.
On December 17th my life forever changed when my daughter, Piper June was born! The only thing I'm more grateful for than the epidural was having Ailee there capturing the first moment Trent and I met her. Cue the waterworks!
Before Piper was born I had high hopes to scheduling out a bunch of content but between the normal December craze and my lack of motivation, it didn't happen. But you can't win 'em all right?! So this is my first post back and I can't think of a better way to kick off 2018 than an interview with Joy Cho of Oh Joy!
The first couple years of our relationship, Trent and I only did experiential gifts for Valentine’s Day. We used to always get each other a fun card with the date night description or tickets tucked inside. To be honest, Christmas JUST happened. It probably doesn’t help that our tree and decorations stay up embarrassingly long. But I digress, back to the gift giving.
Both Trent and I come from a long line of football fans, so there’s always either a college football bowl game or professional playoff game on TV this time of year! I’m down to watch football if my favorite teams are playing but other than that, I’m just in it for the snacks. Anyone else?! The perfect snack for this football season are crunchy, hearty Cape Cod Waves™. It's the best chip to pair with your favorite dips!
In September after seeing one of my favorite bloggers share about FASTer Way to Fat Loss, I immediately bought in. I’m pretty sure I pulled the trigger halfway through her stories! I had just tried Keto and after a month (without wine or sugar) my clothes still fit the same. I was so bummed! So when Liz Adams shared about still having wine and sugar during FASTer Way, I was completely on board.
My Grandma Junie always makes the most amazing lemon pound cake for special occasions and holidays we spend together. Some of my favorite memories growing up involved staying at her house and eating a slice of pound cake for breakfast. This cake is the definition of comfort food for our family and since my grandparents are coming to town tomorrow for Christmas, I figure this is the perfect time to share the recipe.
The next couple weeks are a complete whirlwind of parties and gatherings till the New Year. Not only will we have Christmas happy hours, parties with friends and family gatherings, but Piper’s first birthday was earlier this week and I am a Christmas baby. All the cookies and cocktails will add up, so I thought it would help by not “drinking” too many calories.
