A Room for A

If you dig before and after’s, home tours, free stuff and DIY projects, you might want to sign up to get the occasional non-annoying email from Making a House a Home (your email is safe with us, no spumy stuff here. Top priority once we finally found a home in Nashville, was to get Atlas set up first. We had been so rushed off our feet with trying to choose our next move that the nursery had to take a back seat. Choosing between our dream home in Connecticut that we found on and our dream home in Nashville […]

Nashville House Tour / Atlas' Room

There really are not words to express the level of happy I am to be unpacking and putting things in their place. While moving, running two businesses, and getting use to our new surroundings, lots has slacked. I don’t remember the last time I cooked, or got a hair cut. But, what I do know is my house is 90% less boxes, and rooms are starting to look like rooms. Who needs food and good hair when you can actually walk around your own home? The challenge with our new home is that it’s a whopping 4,000 square feet less […]

My baby doesn't have a red face!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies®. We have been using Huggies Natural Care® Wipes with Triple Clean to keep boogers at bay while Atlas is sick, and loved the results. If we didn’t love it, we wouldn’t post it. Here are the details! It’s been 16 weeks today since Atlas was born. For 10 of those days I have been sick. For 5 of them he has been sick. For two of them Joey has been sick. It’s amazing how fast time is going. He weighs over 17 lbs and eats like a champ, which […]

Boom Bastic!

Hello loves! Joey is convinced no one will get my Shaggy reference. Help me prove him wrong, We have kind of put the nursery on the back burner for a bit because Atlas has been coexisting with us in the master bedroom since we got home from the hospital. We know we have at least another six months of this so we kind of started to work on other projects instead of prioritizing the nursery. We also know we have/had a few more pieces to get, like a 1. ) rug, 2.) fan – and 3.) we want to wallpaper […]

One-a-Week / 7

Good morning lovlies! Did you get a chance to check out some nursery progress a la Joey yesterday? I am wildly in love with the campaign dressers he refinished! Today’s one-a-week is super easy and fun. I am obsessed with super big pom poms. Actually, I really like all pom poms. Our Christmas gifts are looking a little something like this: I love the hot pink and kelly green thing for Christmas. Pom pom’s just make everything happy, so why not pop some on a pillow (and gift wrap, and to just play with)? The pom pom above is your average size run […]
