Thirty-nine weeks + one day pregnant as I write this and I don’t even know what I’m going to say. Sitting here ready to crawl out of my own skin, I just had to do something before I fidget myself into a mental breakdown, and I thought “random thought-vomit BLOG POST!” So here you go my friends… the unfiltered thoughts of a nearly insane, ridiculously pregnant woman, who is BEYOND over it. A.k.a. My thoughts before baby number two.

I do not play when it comes to sleep. It’s important, we all need it, most of us don’t get enough of it. When I got pregnant this time around, I knew we needed to upgrade out of our queen bed to accommodate my growing belly and the mountain of supportive pillows it would require. Thus began our journey for the perfect mattress. Thankfully, we fumbled our way into the most comfortable king size mattress ever.
This E-Design was done a few weeks ago for a fun family needing a few changes in their kitchen. Her style was described as “minimalist farmhouse”, and this design plan fit the bill because we’re starting on their renovation next month! Here are some of the renderings, as well as links to the products pictured!
Lane Jones – It would appear that I missed years 2014, 2015, and 2016 of my birthday “To The One” post to you on your birthday… such shame! Though in fairness we’ve lived in and renovated five houses and had a baby over those few years, so maybe you didn’t even miss this silly post that I try to pawn off as a “gift”? Either way, I’m back!
Friends, I had a hard time with this one. Not only because it’s a great feat of physics to appropriately dress a pregnant body, but also because I’m fashionably challenged (that phrase is TM by me) even with a “normal” body. I looked at Pinterest for weeks trying to find something that I thought might be half photo-worthy. After searching for basically all of my second trimester, I’d resolved that I’d have to spend over $100 to get the flowy, comfy, goddessy style dress that my heart desired. Turns out I was wrong! Here is the dress that got my vote for what to wear for maternity photos, as well as a peek at some of our pics because I just couldn’t resist!
Exhaustion has been taken to new levels around here folks. I am now solidly 8.5 months pregnant and the struggle to sit, stand, and/or sleep comfortably is epic. In addition to that, being the parenting GENIUS that I am, I decided that now (40 days away from newborn) was the time to transition our two year old to her “big girl bed.” Turned out to be a big girl mistake.
In light of the bajillions (that’s an approximate number) of Portuguese Man-O-Wars that have washed ashore here on the east coast of Florida of the last few days, I thought I would share my personal experience with this devil creature from back in 2011. Here, is how to treat a Portuguese Man-O-War Sting, and exactly what it feels like!
This gorgeous flower wall installation is my favorite project for baby girl’s nursery so far! It was so easy that I kinda feel bad even calling it a DIY that is worthy of a tutorial, but nevertheless, here it is! If you have $50 and one hour, you can create this DIY Flower Wall Installation too!
If you have kids, you know what a struggle it can be to keep all of their stuff organized and put away. There are plenty of toy organizers and brightly colored plastic thingamajigs to corral of all of the kiddie gear, but what if you want your storage options to be a little less Mickey Mouse and a little more Joanna Gaines? I got your back and it can be done. Here are six pretty ways to organize your kid’s stuff!
Four moves in five years. That is our reality. Four moves in five years means you’re a pro at packing, you’re probably nuts, and that you’ve mastered repurposing your home décor. I don’t like the heavy lifting, but once all the big stuff is in place, my wheels start turning about what goes where when it comes to our décor, and how I can repurpose, reuse, and make items we’ve had for years seem new and fresh. I love the creativity of this process, and I love the challenge. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite repurposed décor items that I used in my office at our new house.VIEW POST
