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
As I sit on my birth ball and type this, I am 26 weeks and four days pregnant. I have the most compassionate and caring husband that a wife could possibly have. It recently occurred to me that though he is quite possibly the most understanding human in existence, he is helpless when it comes to the impossible task of deciphering the intricate, delicate workings of his pregnant wife’s brain and emotions. I know there must be others out there in same predicament, so I thought I’d cut through the crap and tell you precious husbands straight up exactly what your pregnant wife needs from you.
Today I just had to share a quickie DIY that we did weekend before last because it’s just too good. We got a king size bed (*angels singing*) two weeks ago and what we had hanging on the wall over our old bed wasn’t working. Because every penny we have is going towards saving for the baby, the budget for this wall art project was essentially zero dollars. I think I ended up and spent $3.00. #BigSpender So here’s how we made this gorgeous faux tin panel wall art DIY on the cheap!
Hi my Peeps! If we’re friends on Instagram and Facebook you’ve already seen some sneaks of our laundry room makeover. (And if we’re not friends on Instagram and Facebook, why not?! Let’s fix that shall we?! I’ll wait.) K welcome back! When we first looked at this house, this space was dark and dysfunctional. It had a utility sink hiding behind a door, cabinets with plastic handles, and those swirly blue-ish lightbulbs that I just can’t cope with. We made a few changes and it feels like a brand new space. Bonus that these changes also make the want-to-claw-my-eyeballs-out task of laundry a bit more bearable. Here’s the “after” of our Farmhouse Laundry Room makeover. (And spoiler alert! I love the end result… but I still don’t love laundry.)
