New Home Tour – 2015

new home front of the house

I mentioned last month, when I made the announcement that we sold our home that i would share with you pictures of our new home once it was officially purchased. We closed a few weeks ago and are currently chin-deep in renovations. This weekend coming up is a big weekend for us since we have a lot on the agenda and depending if we get it all done will depend if we get to move in next weekend. I'm trying to be optimistic but I think moving will happen the week before Labor Day if not actually … [Read more...]

{Old House} Home Tour

side view of house

It's closing week on our new house. And in an effort to hold all the excitement a little more I figured I would share photos of our old home. In all the years we've been blogging we've never done a home tour! Ever! Well we did a home story with Homes.com but never shared the full home. I can't believe it. So I'll share our old home and then next week (once we've closed on our new home) I'll share our new home and then each year I'll try to share our home as we update and renovate. Because we … [Read more...]

Whale Nursery

gorgeous whale nursery

It's been two weeks since we sold our home and it still doesn't feel real. I've been all out of whack and in a blog funk. Since we are currently in between homes I figured the best thing to do right now is to finally reveal the full whale nursery in all its glory. I'm a little sad we had to say bye to it. We are going to keep most of the same elements the same but add in a few new ones to work with the new space we have. Plus we will be converting Ryder's once nursery into a big boy room sooner … [Read more...]

How To Apply Vinyl To A Coffee Table + $100 Giveaway

Because Every Picture Has A Story Vinyl on Coffee Table

This post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own. I recently had the chance to give our formal living room an update thanks to my friends at Snapfish! Our formal living and dining room has always been the "last" room to be decorated. The first few years it was kind of a dumping ground for everything we had but couldn't find a place for. Our formal living area also consisted of all sorts of random free furniture we received from friends and family including a … [Read more...]

Free Downloadable Father's Day Believe Printable

Ever since getting my subscription to GraphicStock and getting Photoshop back in my life I finally started to make some fun printables. I found this quote while searching the web and felt like it was the perfect Father's Day quote. I wanted to make a printable to display in our house to remind Jon just how important he is in Ryder's life. Just the other day Jon mentioned that Father's Day is a holiday made only to make dad's feel good about themselves. Mother's Day is a legit holiday. I beg to … [Read more...]

How To Grow Green Onions

Learn how easy it is to grow green onions

We love to garden in our house. Since I cook morning, noon, and night we go through a lot of fresh produce and herbs. One trick I learned a long time ago was ways to replant and get more life out of my green onions. Say what?!? Yes, DO NOT throw the root ends from green onions away. You can actually plant them and regenerate a few rounds of green onions before they are no longer good. … [Read more...]

Master Bedroom Refresh – Spring 2015

Whim Bedding Collection  6

I'm so excited to share a little refresh we recently did to our master bedroom. Our bedding is a few years old now and thanks to our adorable dog she had ripped parts of our comforter. She's tiny and likes to "fluff" before she lays down... resulting in her tearing it with her razor sharp teeth! So we knew it was time to retire our old comforter set and come up with a new look. At the same time we decided this my friends at Martha Stewart Living contacted me and asked me if I would like to try … [Read more...]

Yogabed™ – The Luxury Foam Mattress

Yogabed 1

A big thanks to Yogabed for sponsoring todays post. As always all opinions are our own.  Jon and I have been married for going on 7 years and have been together for 12.5 years. In the 7.5 years we've lived together we have never ever had a brand new mattress. The first few years of our marriage we slept on Jon's mattress from high school. Then a family friend was selling the mattress they bought just a few month's prior so we bought it (and upgraded to a king size bed). So when Yogabed … [Read more...]
