    I am that Martha of our family… wioth my in-laws anyway. Hosted two back to back brunches this weekend and even though it was very simple stuff, my guests were impressed!

  4. Camila- I was a guest, too. But since I was STAYING at my sister’s house I did go Martha by making homemade rolls and brownie bites with homemade marshmallow fondant flowers in the morning before I handed the kitchen over to her.

    Then I just played with my nephews till the guests arrived!

    Happy Easter to your family!

    I guess I’m the Martha. We hosted Easter, and I went all out with the decorations and food. My SIL is equally crafty, but doesn’t bake or cook. It’s nice to take a breather every now and again, though. Glad you could abdicate the Martha duties. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Good for you! I typically do the party planning, but this year my sister-in-law did it all! It was great and everyone had a wonderful time.

    Good to hear you took a moment for yourself. Sometimes doing nothing is the best reward.

  7. I’m definitely the Martha of our family, but I think we all have our own Martha tendencies. πŸ™‚
    This year, we met a weekend early for Easter. This was the first holiday that my husband and I have ever spent alone, not traveling to family’s house. It was surprisingly nice and relaxing. πŸ™‚ Glad you got to take it easy too!

  8. Megan says:

    I totally know what you mean. My parents hosted Easter and I promised to decorate, set up a basketball hoop, and bring an appetizer & dessert (I made mac n cheese cupcakes and cake pops). I cant seem to take the easy route and just make a boxed cake or brownies. Needless to say my husband and I were overwhelmed and ready to kill each other. I may have to relinquish Martha duties in upcoming years.

  9. Coco says:

    Super cute table setting! I hosted a spring party on a budget. Super fun! Happy Spring to you!

  10. How nice to take a break! My Mom is usually the “Martha” in the family, and I am the assistant πŸ™‚

  11. kayce hughes says:

    Sounds like yours. Had people over for lunch. we grabbed pizza from whole foods and everyone grabbed plates from the shelves. It can be fun to be Martha or Mary.

  12. kelley says:

    you did nothing–that is crazy talk. truly i am the same way. was unhappy that i did not have a super cute Easter table this weekend. told my husband that i need to get better at my tablescape skills!

  13. JEN RAMOS says:

    The weekend was so nice ….the weather was perfect. Attended church and saw a couple of my friends as well :))) Glad you had a nice Easter!

  14. I do all the holidays. Yes, every one. But it is time for that to change. I love it, but it is getting to be too much. Still we had a lovely weekend.

  15. Anne-Marie says:

    Yes, I’m the Martha! I made 34 linen napkins for our family dinner this weekend, then hosted πŸ™‚ Taking next year off πŸ™‚ Glad you took the needed break.

  16. Kathysue says:

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
