Day 01: Moving In

There was a point when we were scared of Hurricane Florence–that point where the hurricane was forecast to be category 5 making landfall directly on our house. In the end, she came onshore as a massive storm that caused major flooding and annoyance for all of us — food shortages, traffic, logistical nightmares, and going […]

Our Nursery (finally)

Last year, I posted about how I was going to decorate the nursery, but i never got around to posting the finished room. The room is ALMOST finished, but it’s definitely time to show it off. (Still left to do — new floors below the carpet, a couple of pieces of artwork, and crown molding.) […]

Guest Room Revisited

The first step to our nursery renovation was moving the guest room. We’re keeping most of the guest room furniture in the nursery (the two dressers anyway), but there just wasn’t room for the full-sized bed component of the bedroom suite. I’ve also been rearranging a lot of the books on the bookcases in our […]

I made her some onesies for her little guy featuring iron-ons from two games. (Rob, my husband, helped me pick out good […]

I have a confession to make. Way before we were even trying to get pregnant, I started buying things for our future nursery. I knew I always wanted to make a beautiful space for a baby that was gender neutral in terms of color and elements after seeing Jeong Mee Yoon’s Pink and Blue Project […]

Wardrobe Challenge

I have a huge closet of clothes that I never wear. I’ve also filled at least two other closets with clothes in my house that are either 1) out of season or 2) have been pre-purged into a sort of clothing purgatory between my main closet and the eBay/charity pile. It’s going to take some […]

Putting the Hard-Earned Medals on Display!

After running in three 5Ks, a 10K, two 15Ks, and two half marathons, it was time to make a display for all of our race paraphernalia. I checked out Pinterest and Etsy for precedents, and finally made these two boards for us. The total cost was pretty cheap! We bought the two wood plaques at […]
