  34. BeColorful says:

    Congrats… big time. So excited for the two of you. I have been following your blog for probably two years. I admit I don’t always read every word. I’m bad, but love the images and if I want to know more I read every word.
    Mike and I went down a similar conception path and I remember the sadness every time another friend would announce their pregnancy. I was happy for them but wanted the same for us. All I can say now is be careful. It was like once my body figured out how the whole pregnancy thing worked I was a baby making machine. πŸ™‚
    Thrilled for you

    Congratulations!! I’m also so sorry for all that you struggled with to get to this point. We had a misscarriage this past April with what would have been our second child, should have been 9 weeks and the baby stopped developing at 6 weeks. I know how rough it is but what blessing this child is and will be in your lives. I pray for a safe and healthy pregnacy for you and baby! Enjoy every moment, the good and bad, during your pregnancy, it’s a beautiful journey.

    I rarely comment on all the [amazing!] blogs I read…it’s a time and too-busy-brain thing. But this warrants the time and brain work! Congratulations to you both! or – to all three of you! We lost our first and third children through miscarriage, so your apprehension to announce this pregnancy is completely understood (as is the heartache, to be sure).It sounds trite to hear how fast time flies. But it does! Next thing you know, your first daughter will be in grad school. Oh, wait – that’s me. !! God bless. Enjoy!

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, […]

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 […]
