Nursery & Toddler Room Progress + A DIY

If you've been following along with me on Instagram & my Insta stories, you may know that we've been knee deep painting the upstairs of our new home (finally!). I'm happy to report that the upstairs (minus our bedroom) is done! We have to do a few touch ups here and there, but overall it's painted and it's made such a huge difference.

One room in particular that is a big improvement is E's room, which she will eventually share with her baby brother.

Our New House (Part II)

I thought it was about time to share the remainder of the upstairs in our new home. If you missed part 1 of the house tour you can catch up here. The last post contained the entryway, living room & kitchen/dining area. 

Next up, on the upper level are the bedrooms, hall & bath. Again, we've done nothing to these rooms in these photos except move our stuff in. I thought it would be fun to show the progression of transformation as we go. So here's the just moved in semi-unpacked state.

At the top of the stairs if you go to the right (down the hall) you'll find the bathroom & two bedrooms.

What I Look For at Yard Sales

This summer the yard sale bug has bit me. I guess I should say "us", because husband is totally in on it too. He'll tell you. Maybe it's because we're needing some things for our new place? Whatever it is, right now, I'm totally game for them. I mean, even our 2 year old is loving it. We'll stop at one and before we get back to the car she'll be saying "more, mama".


I'll be the first to admit that you definitely have to be in the mood to yard sale and yard sales can, without a doubt, be hit or miss. But if you have the patience, and are persistent, you can end up finding some really great things.

Pregnancy & Baby Update

This isn't a usual post around here but, I thought today it'd be fun to share a little bit of a pregnancy & baby update with you all. Over the weekend we entered week 29. We are in THIRD trimester, people! I seriously don't know where the time has gone. Not long now and baby will be joining us. I'm kind of freaking out a little. That's OK to say, right???
