We had such a fun day. It was the birthday of one of my dear friends, so we headed over to Birkdale Village for lunch at Zoe’s….kids in tow.  B, Gigi, and I went to Nothing Bundt Cakes to get the birthday girl a cake. Y’all, this place is ridiculously amazing. I cannot believe how [...]

D had two work trips this month. He is also advancing his degree (so proud of him!!!) and attends class two nights a week after work.  And let me tell y’all…that makes for one heck of a long day with the kids.  We decided we needed a little refresher and escaped to Savannah for a [...]

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

I found the best wine cabinet at ReStore in Cornelius. A solid piece of furniture, all it needed was a facelift. Of course, I cannot find the before picture. I am adding photo organization to my “to do” list. Anyway, the old finish was a stain that had a lot of red undertones to it. [...]

An Entryway Table: A Little Unwanted Table Goes a Long Way

An Entryway Table: A Little Unwanted Table Goes a Long Way

Everyone has that funky room.  The room that just needs something, but you don’t quite know what it needs.  For me, that room was my foyer.  Being the very first room anyone saw, I HATED that I didn’t so much as even ”like” it.  It felt bare…cold…sparse.  The room’s shape didn’t necessarily allow for a ton of furniture, but [...]

The Reality of Launching a Product

My house is covered in patterns.  I have been styling photos and making and applying decals nonstop.  This is my reality this week.  It’s fun, but so exhausting.  At least I get to share with y’all some of the fun walls I have styled!   Here’s the reality of doing this with kids! Little B wanted to [...]

Something amazing happens in the moment that an imaginative thought becomes a reality.  That happened to me this week. I started thinking about how I wanted to wallpaper a bathroom wall in a “punchy” and bold white and navy whale pattern.  One thought led to an other (as the ADD mind so often does) and [...]

I’m on a kick. I major kick. I love leopard. Or cheetah….or whatever you want to call it. Either way, I love it. It’s cropping up in everything I have been purchasing lately. I love this new leopard print bracelet that I got from Stacy Brown Designs…and it’s monogrammed, of course. You can find the [...]

Good Lord, it’s been cold outside! We have been stuck in our house. Poor little B begged so long to go outside the other evening…I finally broke down. He was allowed to play in the freezing weather as long as he wore a coat, hat, etc. The child hates to wear a hat…and this was [...]

Well, it happened.  My baby girl turned one.  Doesn’t that make her technically a toddler now?  That word alone makes me want to cry.  I cannot believe how fast this year went.  I was digging through old photos of her the other day and stumbled on this photo I took of her and B on [...]
