Items to save for
2/28/20

Hi! I hope you all have had a great week. I figured I’d close it out by sharing things that I’m/we’re currently saving for. Stephen and I stick to a budget and refuse to have any debt other than our mortgage (which we also are trying to pay off as quickly as we possibly can) […]

My Dream Scenario for our Next Move + a Bedroom Design Board

About a month ago we found out that we’re headed to Columbus, Mississippi for Stephen’s next assignment. Now that it has set in, we’re excited! There are so many things I’m going to miss about South Carolina, especially our friends but I do have to say… I’m ready to get this show on the road! […]

Easy to make bread
2/13/20

Do you guys own a bread machine? Growing up my Mom made bread in hers all the time. I loved coming home to the smell of fresh baked bread… There’s nothing quite like it. A machine is by no means a necessity. However, just like a Crock Pot it makes life so much easier. You […]

My First Trimester Essentials

Hi! Now that I’ve shared my recap of the first trimester with you all, I figured I’d put together a post that includes all of my first trimester essentials. Just a reminder, everyone’s pregnancy is different! These are just things that helped me so much in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy or made it […]

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

In the past I haven’t typically done posts like this but the other day I was ordering Stephen a set of workout clothes from Fabletics and thought, “Oohhh! This would be really cute in a basket for Valentine’s Day with a few other fun things for him!” then one thing led to another and well… […]

First Trimester Recap
2/08/20

At the start of the week we shared that we have been keeping a big secret! If you haven’t read that post, you can check that one out first HERE. Not only was it surreal to write and share but I’m also incredibly grateful to be sitting here writing this one. As I was in […]

Ridiculously Simple DIY Chalkboard

Since we know that we’ll be moving sometime this year, I want to make sure anything we “DIYed” in this house is documented on here for you guys (and for us in case we want to do something similar in the next house)! A really simple project that I shared on Instagram stories was the […]

We Have Some Big News to Share…

It feels a bit surreal sitting down to write this post. It’s something I’ve thought through in my head and desired to do for nearly three years but if you know our journey (you can watch a video on that HERE or read about it HERE, HERE, or HERE), you know that wasn’t part of […]
