Switch Switch

Happy New Year friends! We have no news to share about our move back to NYC and it’s making us stir crazy! We can’t help but do small things here and there around the house until we head back. In fact we aren’t even 100% sure if we are going to sell both houses yet, so no harm in the beautification progress. If you have been hanging out a while, you know we dressed our house with some high end light switched through the year in Atlas’ bathroom, the living room, and the dining room. The obsession started with the

The three least boring ways to gift a gift card

Freedom. It’s a good thing. We get to practice it daily without second thought. We like what we like and sometimes we are the only one’s who can make sure we get the right meal, our coffee made just the right way, or pick out clothes that fit perfectly and that’s totally OK. I think it’s why we love getting gift cards so much. We are free to decide what we want without the awkward “Thanks” when getting handed that triplicate sweater everyone knew was “so you”, or the CD you have no use for because you have your perfectly

#sparechangeproject / 1

We spent the weekend doing the furniture-shifting-dance between our new Nashville cottage and our new and needed storage facility, yet again. It’s such a hard thing to wave bye-bye to furniture just so it can sit in a “box” unused. I can’t wait until we get an extension on this house/find another house and let those stored pieces out to play. In the meantime, we have been working with what we got. If you are keeping track, we had to put the dining room table, coffee table, pillars, the awesome table Joey built, and various tid bits to storage. We sold

Silver vs Gold

I am into gold. I am also into silver. Before we knew what color walls we were going to commit to I bought a ton of silver frames from Ikea, and as we have been making this house our home those silver frames kind of disappeared into the paint choices we have made. Not to mention, I am kind of over looking at wedding pictures of me and Joey after four years. Instead of ditching the old frames, I decided to give spraying them gold a shot – and it was a great idea! Joey got me this amazing signed

Officially Announcing Atlas

It’s been over eight weeks since we had our little bean. Tomorrow will officially mark two whole months! Time is just whizzing by at an unbelievable speed. We had a minor mix up with our birth announcements, but they are finally here and we LOVE them! We got the idea from a pin we saw on pinterest and edited it to our specifications. Joey and I are pretty bad with photoshop, but after the try-fail method a million times – we finally wond up with something we loved and it only cost us $15 for 50! We used overnight prints with a coupon, but pretty much

It's a Spring Thing

I am SO OVER WINTER! I have been over it before it even started! I have been dreaming of planting in the raised bed Joey built for months now! Also, I can’t wait to get out of the house and into the sunshine with Rocket, Porkchop and Joey and Atlas. Spring, you are so close. In anticipation and celebration of sweet Spring, I joined forces with some of the most lovely ladies online to host a link party and blog hop dedicated to Spring! Please check out Emily from MerryPad‘s blog tomorrow where she is kicking things off!   Emily

Tiny Tree Ornament Project

Happy happy Monday friends! We are 33 and 1/2 weeks down and have a little more than 6 weeks to go before little “A” gets here! Isn’t is crazy hou you can feel so ready, yet so not ready at the same time about something? We are working our butts off to get the nursery in order, while preparing for hosting Christmas at our house and Joey’s grandfather’s 90th birthday! A lot is going on to say the least! We still keep squeezing in little Holiday Projects, and this one is super cute. These super cute tiny trees I found

One-A-Week-Wednesday with Pinterest

Hello! Happy mid week! How’s it flowin’? I decided to get a little adventurous and try something I never would have. We turned bar soap into liquid soap, and it was fun! The lovely pick (as well as photo above) comes from a blog I just found out about via the magic of pinterest! The Farmer’s Nest gave pretty great instructions, so I won’t be repetitive and break down the deets, but I will tell you what I learned. We used a bar of soap we had hanging around. I think it had glycerine in it. We followed the instructions
