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 […]

easy diy gold wording cheese board

This little project was dreamed up out of necessity. I have loved all of those cheese boards with pretty glided greetings for a while now. I had my eye on You are my favorite and Hello Lovely cheese plates from Anthropologie, but they were a bit too pricey for a whim. So, I knew there […]

1st birthday flamingo party

Due to this blog of mine I was able to meet one of my closest friends, Melissa. A couple of years ago she stopped at a parenting center where I was taking a class with Hudson. I was surprised that someone recognized me from the blog. I think she actually recognized Hudson first! We grabbed […]

Peonies season is in full swing and I’m obsessed! It’s such a short season that I really like to get as many peonies as I can while they are available! Trader Joe’s happens to sell then for $6.99 a bunch so, it’s always easy to pick some up while I’m shopping. I’ve been reading up […]


How to care for your cut peonies


This Friday I’m sharing how I decorated our backyard deck for the summer. I left all of the main players intact so, no new furniture pieces. Just a little bit of fun with new accessories! Can’t wait to share! I did want to give a little spoiler and share one of the fun floral arrangements […]


Easy DIY Fresh Pineapple Vase

get inspired with our own home tour


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.
