Nursery Plans

March 6, 2017

As soon as word was out that I was pregnant, people have been asking what the nursery is going to look like. And don’t get me wrong, I’ve been thinking about it for a while now. We always planned on the office becoming a nursery. We purposefully didn’t do too much in there and just got some simple Ikea desks to tide us over until the day came that the room would be transformed for a new tiny human. Here’s our plans for making the room worthy for the new babe: Continue Reading…

Wayyy back in September we had our house photographed to be featured on Design*Sponge. It forced us to finally add the finishing touches we never got around to doing, like adding pillows, hanging up some artwork, and just trying to make the house look Design*Sponge worthy.

the great curb appeal checklist

Outside Projects

And just like that, a month goes by and the blog is silent. I promised that we weren’t done with the house renovations yet! Oh, this poor front yard. I’ve definitely given it some love in the past. But that love, my friends, was merely renter love. I weeded a little, painted the door, even planted about 4 plants that soon died after I planted them because my renter love quickly faded. But now this is homeowner love. I’m serious now. We need to kick the curb appeal up majorly and really put some effort into getting this front yard up to par with the inside. So here’s the game plan: Continue Reading…
