After completing the kitchen renovation and loving on nearly every square inch of our Mississippi home, we figured we couldn’t just leave the laundry room untouched. At the same time though we knew we were approaching our move and the Mississippi house would soon be listed for rent. With that in mind, we kept the […]

Acrylic Calendar DIY (Save Hundreds of Dollars!)

As we’ve been adding more kids to our Tupta crew, Stephen and I agreed that it would be beneficial for us to have a family calendar to stay more organized. We thought it would be most useful if it was located in the main hub of our home where we’ll see it daily and where […]

The Kitchen Reveal in our Mississippi Home

As soon as we saw photos of the Mississippi house we knew that if we purchased it, we could have a really fun kitchen renovation on our hands. I don’t say that sarcastically! We really believed it could be a fun challenge to potentially completely gut and then build a new kitchen from the ground […]

I’m going to start off this post by unapologetically admitting that our backyard isn’t anything to write home about in terms of looks. It has, however, provided thousands of hours of entertainment for our girls, a good bit of produce in our garden despite its lack of sunlight, an ample amount of space for our […]

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Our Crew of FIVE!

About nine months ago if you had told me that I would be writing this Merry Christmas post to you with a baby soundly sleeping on my chest I would’ve been quite shocked. Yet here we are! Baby Jackson John (YES, OUR GIRLS HAVE A BROTHER!!!!) made his way into the world on December 11. […]

The Girl’s/Guest Bathroom Reveal in Our Mississippi Home

Of all the rooms in our Mississippi home, the girl’s/guest bathroom needed the most love. Ironically, it was the only bathroom we used the entire first year we lived in this house before we completed the primary bathroom remodel because it made the most sense for us logistically. It was adorned with wood paneling and […]

Over the summer we found out that we are getting stationed at Langley AFB, our first pick for where we were desiring for the Air Force to send us next. As much as we adore our community and home here in Mississippi, we really really craved being closer than 12-17 hours away from family. Especially […]

(Way) Better than Before Kitchen – My New Recommended Method to Paint Cabinets

About a year ago one of my best friends, Emilee, started talking to me about making some updates to her kitchen. Her biggest frustration with the space was that the entire thing was all “paper bag” brown – the walls, cabinets, counters, backsplash. All of it. The area was in dire need of some contrast. […]

Maternity Clothing Staples + Fall Maternity Capsule Wardrobe

As the temperatures are starting to drop (PRAISSSSSSSE THE LORD!) here in Mississippi, I have been starting to reach for fall clothes. I quickly realized though as I was stuffing myself like a sausage into non-maternity casings pieces that I was hoping I’d still be able to use for a while, that just wasn’t going […]
