Scenes from my weekend…

  1. Jessica says:

    I feel your pain on the house hunt. I really want to move into a center hall Colonial next, and I’ve been looking for literally years. There’s maybe three in the town we live in now, all of them over our price range even if they were for sale (they’re not and haven’t been), and even if I expand the search to nearby cities the few I see are either way over budget or in bad neighborhoods/bad school districts.

    House #2 is cute, but if you don’t feel it, you don’t feel it. I can’t remember, have you guys decided not to build?

      Thanks! We are going on 2 years now looking! I’m exhausted. We like old houses so we really weren’t thinking about doing a new build. I started considering it a couple of weeks ago, but it would be way too expensive. Even land is going for $400k-$500k and then we would need to build so it starts adding up quickly!

    Hang in there girl! ????????????

    • effortless says:

      Thanks, love! I feel like such a baby complaining about it, but I’m just so spent and it’s really starting to stress me out.

    Rent in your ideal school district. Just take the stress off your shoulders and your sons will still be in a great school. You’ll have plenty of time to find the house in the right neighborhood. And since you’re a designer, you can make whatever house you end up in, look the way you want. There is no need to rush it. Buying is an emotional, exhausting process. Best of luck!

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 […]
