It’s hot. I know it’s not just hot here in NC…but our air conditioner decided to check out. Womp womp. I spent the day last Friday stuck at home while ‘Mike the repair man’ tried to figure out the issue. (Bonus-he took care of two wasps that snuck into our house. Cool air and a [...]

How is it already the end of June?!?

IMG_0016-001

This is what happens, you see.  When you try to run a business with tiny children, time flies.  Everything else  becomes…impossible to keep up with.  One minute ago I was pregnant with Georgia and carrying Briggs around.  Now, G has one tiny tooth popping through and B is picking out his backpack for preschool and [...]

The ReStore ReStyle 2014 event is done and I had so much fun.  I am still so worn out from the chaos of the past two weeks.  I have done so many projects my head is spinning.  And now I want to break it all down for ya.  First off, here is the final product.  [...]

A Bigger Reason

A Bigger Reason

For two weeks now, my hands have been covered in paint and glue.  I have small cuts all over my hands from yanking frames apart.  Yesterday my mother-in-law asked me where the huge bruise on my arm came from and I hadn’t even noticed it.  And frankly, if someone even brings one white plate within 50 [...]

What the heck is SweetHoney?

Just when I thought I had shopping all figured out, I had a little girl. There is the endless ‘problem’ of seeing too many cute things and then trying to resist the urge to buy another ruffle-covered-butt-bubble. Pretty simple, right? Then I discovered this little Facebook page called SweetHoney.  (I use the term ‘little’ loosely.)  [...]

When I love something, I tend to obsess over it.  Here is an (extremely random) list of my “of-the-moment” favorites: Sequin Wine I am a red wine kinda gal.  I love it and rarely ever order white…until I discovered this little gem.  I’m not going to lie, I bought it because the bottle was cute.  But when [...]

IMG_6822

A friend of mine (thanks Aliesha!) shared her recipe for fool-proof peel and eat shrimp. I truly never knew how easy it was…for some reason, I always found it so intimidating. After making it once, it has become our favorite meal to make when the weather warms up. There’s something about a cold glass of [...]

For any party, it’s important to give attention to the small things. I truly believe the little details make a party go from good to great. The best part is that it’s so easy to do without spending a ton of money. Candles bring a certain amount of “sparkle” to a party…they are a necessity. I [...]

Southern Nest Silhouettes The silhouette.  It’s classic, elegant, and has an air of vintage sophistication.  Suddenly, I am obsessed.  After browsing different options for having a silhouette made of little B (for myself and as Christmas presents for the grandparents) I knew I wanted an updated spin on the traditional silhouette portrait. It all started [...]
