Ellie's Favorites
4/27/21

Guava Travel Crib – A friend of ours got this for us because she said it’s the best and she was SO RIGHT (thank you, Laura!!)! Not only does it fold up into a case that makes it easy to travel with but it also makes a great little play pen if we need to […]

Small Updates to Ellie’s Closet + How we Organize her Clothes

One of the great parts about Ellie Joy’s bedroom is that her closet is massive! As we were working on her bedroom makeover, I knew that I wanted to make her closet more functional, organized, and overall better than before (if I was able to) as my friend Brooke (@nestingwithgrace) says. Someday I hope to […]

Introducing Solids to Ellie Joy Pt. 1

Hi hi hi! Since showing snippets of Ellie eating, I have gotten so many questions from friends and readers about what we have done so far. I love that you guys are asking questions and that you’re trying to determine what is best to do with your child! Please keep doing that! I’m not an […]

Essential Oil Shelf
3/23/21

The first thing that I did as soon as the walls were painted (and dry) in the office was get this little corner set up. I had been imagining it for months now so to watch it come to life was exciting for me. It might be pretty simple but it houses a few of […]

Nursing-Friendly Capsule + A New Unexpected Brand that I Love

Something I didn’t expect to battle with postpartum is having such a hard time getting dressed. It’s such a minor thing in the grand scheme of life, I know, but it’s just one more thing to add onto the rest of the giant list that I’ve experienced and thought, “Well shoot. Mamahood is hard!” I […]

The Office is Painted! How We’ve Cut Down Painting Time

Something that I want to do better at is sharing progress of our work on the house on here. I try my best to remember to share all of the steps on my Instagram with you but I will admit, sometimes we get on a roll and I forget to pick my phone up. It’s […]

Textured Ceiling Removal
3/08/21

Even before we bought our 1980’s home in Mississippi, we talked about and researched how we could remove the textured ceilings, or more specifically stomped ceilings. There is nothing wrong with textured ceilings, we just love the look of flat ceilings and thought it would make the home feel refreshed. It’s totally a personal preference! […]

These Chocolate Walls have GOT TO GO! Office Plan + Before Photos

Of all the rooms in the house, this is one of the ones we’re most excited to get our hands on (tied with the bathrooms) simply because of the wall color. We have some really big trees around our house which we love. An upside of that is that it creates a lot of shade […]

2021 Project Plans

Stephen and I sat down together at the beginning of the year and came up with a plan for the order we want to tackle projects on the house. It’s not necessarily “set in stone” but it helps us be on the same page and is helpful when budgeting. Speaking of budgeting, if you haven’t […]
