PREGNANT | 13 weeks

Where to begin. I guess a good place to start is to announce that we’re expecting a new addition to our family May 2018! And by addition I mean baby. We’re expecting a baby! (; It’s been a whirlwind of emotions, but using this blog as my pregnancy journal has been really nice to remember it all. Moving forward I want to do weekly updates, but for now I’m going to do a quick 4-13 week update! How I found out: I  ...

Shiplap Split Level Entryway

I did not put in shiplap because it’s what’s popular. I repeat: I did not put in shiplap because it’s what’s popular 😉 With Fixer Upper farmhouse style continually on the rise (anyone check out Joanna Gaines’ new Target line yet?), I can pretty much sum up a Fixer Upper episode into taking down a wall, adding hardwood floors, installing beams, and putting shiplap somewhere.

Coffee Cart Reveal

I was really excited to get my coffee cart up and running because my current coffee situation was taking up most of my countertop space and it was looking very messy! It took a while to find the right cart because I had pretty specific dimensions I was working with.

DIY Microwave Cart Update | Microwave Cart to Entertainment Center Storage

Hopefully I’m not the only one, but I’d like to say that everyone has those areas in their house where the junk just seems to accumulate. For most people it’s a junk drawer, for me it was a junk cart! Yikes. I bought this pretty outdated microwave cart at Goodwill when we first got married as a coffee cart for our tiny, yet cozy apartment. It did its job and I carried it over to our house as a sort of entertainment storage  ...

Home Update: New Floors

The time has finally come! We knew that our plywood floors were just a fix until we were going to spend big money on actual floors. It’s not regretted, because it truly was a better option than the carpet that was there previously. Here’s just a glimpse of what the carpet looked like throughout the top floor: The carpet got torn out immediately (can you blame me?), then we lived with the stained plywood for almost two years: It  ...
