Oh IKEA, I love you. You're affordable, try to make things sustainable, and you're conveniently right down the street from me. Well, it hasn't always been that way. I remember when IKEA was a distant thought. In high school, over 10 years ago, I had been into IKEA a couple times. Over in Germany and . . .
THIS. WAGON. IS. AWESOME. Just going to start this off with that bold statement. It has seriously changed our lives. We use it EVERYDAY. Whether we're at the zoo, or going to the grocery store... this bad boy takes care of business. Scroll to the end of this post for full video. You . . .
Okay you guys! I totally didn't have a toddler on my way to pick up our pups after getting back in town from the lake, so I stopped at Target to make a return (*cough cough*) and decided to browse around. I mean, who can go into Target and NOT find something they don't love? If you know someone, let . . .
YOUR LOVE HELPS US GROW. There is no more of a true statement than this, the love of family helps us grow. That expression we toss around a lot, it takes a village, really does hold true to all the mamas, grandmamas, and great grandmamas out there. When Mother's Day and Father's Day rolls . . .
So Edie has freaked out the last couple times I have tried to get her haircut... so one day on a whim, I trimmed her bangs and they came out okay! I did it by myself the first time (Justin was at work), but it is really helpful if I have Justin's extra hands to hold her still. Glimpse into life with . . .
We all make mistakes, and I have made my fair share of mistakes when it comes to choosing paint colors. You get this idea in your head that something is going to turn out awesome, then you finally finish it, and it's not. One of my first mistakes, I thought I was going to love this coral color. . . .
Let's start this off by saying I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING. Edie is my first kid. My first girl. My first everything. I use to joke that my dogs were my furbabies and were preparing me for actual motherhood, boy was I wrong. I will tell you, I am GOING TO START LEARNING. Very quickly. . . .
So last week, we officially handed over our keys to our home on Bell Street. As a family, we went through a wave of emotions; stress, sadness, relief, and exhaustion. As we were packing, and each room was becoming more and more bare, I just kept saying "thank you" to our home. With tears in . . .
So this try on got a little weird... I started in clothes, worked my way into some activewear, then ended the party in pajamas. As I am writing this post, I am in those said pajamas and I have no regrets! My first try on was this cute eyelet blouse, and camo pants. I’ve been slightly obsessed . . .
I write these words with a heavy heart, we sold our house last night. Officially, new owners will take the keys April 26th. Not going to lie, I ugly cried after signing that document. Just a couple signatures and our home, gone. This house, we could have lived in forever. Now, don’t get me . . .
