Project List for 2021
3/01/21

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 […]

Ellie Joy’s Nursery Reveal

Six months since Ellie’s birth and it’s finally time to reveal her nursery! It has taken us a good chunk of time because we decided against it in the South Carolina house since we knew that we’d be moving six weeks after she was born. That didn’t stop me from dreaming up plans for when […]

Our Baby Feeding Essentials + Adaptable Routine

Ellie Joy is officially six months old which means that we’ve put food in her precious little belly for six months. Woof, baby feeding can be tough journey. Ours has been all over the place (and is still changing from time to time) so I’m going to do my best to break it into chunks […]

Entryway Makeover

We’ve lived in the Mississippi house for almost five months now! Time is flying. We have a lot of work to do on this 1980’s home to freshen it up a bit. We started in the guest bedroom (I’ll share more on that later!) and moved onto the entryway. Removing the textured ceilings in the […]

Easy & Budget-Friendly Black Board and Batten Tutorial

In our South Carolina home, one of the first projects we completed was the board and batten in the entryway. Even though the house was brand spankin’ new and really didn’t need anything, we wanted to add some charm and character to it. Board and batten is an easy way to do that! By the […]

Cloth Diapering Our Newborn

While I was pregnant with Eleanor (even before then actually) I did a lot of research on baby essentials. Despite what the baby industry will make you think, babies need very little: milk and diapers are the two most basic necessities. We’ll discuss baby feeding in a separate post. As for the diapers, I knew […]

A good friend of mine and I were talking a week or so before Christmas and got on the topic of the 75 Hard Challenge. If you don’t know what it is, it’s a mental toughness challenge (that got pretty famous on Tik Tok apparently) developed by Andy Frisella in which you have to do […]

Creating Joyful Spaces – Mississippi Christmas Tour 2020

We moved into our 1980’s home in Mississippi three months ago. Time has flown by! We’re excited for all that is to come in this house and what we have planned to do with it. We love making over spaces! This one will be even more fun because of how much work it needs. Stephen […]
