• Mile A Day December

    I have learned something about myself this year: I do not exercise on my own unless I have a race I paid for, a gym membership I am paying for, or a tangible goal that I have told a lot of people about. Basically, if my money or my pride are involved, I workout. After

  • DIY Thanksgiving Banner

    This past Saturday we hosted a Friendsgiving with five couples and at the last minute decided to make a Thanksgiving banner. I really should have made this weeks ago because it took me just a half hour and it looks so cute on my mantle I almost don’t want to take it down in three

    Five things to share this Friday: 1. I am really close to finishing a granny square blanket. I started it last Thanksgiving so it’s been in the works for waaaay too long. 2.

  • The Tale of Two Console Tables

    I’m not sure why, but console tables are a little intimidating to shop for and scream I’m an adult! more than any other piece of furniture. (Okay, maybe buying nursery furniture says that too, but I’m not there yet). I’ve never had a console or entryway table before because I have never lived in a space big

  • One Year With Leia

    I realized the other day it’s been over a year since we got Leia. I can’t believe I forgot the anniversary! I thought I would recap what this year has been like so I can remember later when she’s older. This is one of those posts for my own benefit, no one else is probably

  • My Christmas Budget

    I find it humorous how every year I am surprised when the holidays roll around. Once the stores start decorating for Christmas we’re all like What?? Christmas ALREADY?? as if it isn’t the exact same day year after year. It’s so easy to get out of control and spend more than you intend to at
