Thanksgiving Menu


With Thanksgiving less than a week, away I hope your menu is in order along with what I'm sure is a hefty grocery list if you are doing all the cooking. Our family keeps a very traditional menu that we don't often vere from.

Via 1 2 3 4 5 6

Turkey/Dressing
Garlic Mashed Potatoes with gravy
Candied Sweet potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Hot Buttery Rolls

Via 1 2 3

I must confess that my favorite part might just be the desserts!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Baby Harper


Our sweet baby Harper arrived on November 5, 2013. We are loving every minute with her and adjusting to life with 2 girls now! 




I just love how our newborn pictures turned out!! They captured how excited big sister Ava is to have a little sister now! 

Hopefully I can get back to somewhat of a normal blogging routine soon! Thanks for your patience! If you're a new mom then you know exactly how time consuming newborns are!!

Lighting that will Surprise You


We all love a good bargain so I had to share a few chandeliers that I found that look amazing in person but won't break the bank! 


Totally loving this beaded chandelier from World Market! Plus, it's only $199! Such a bargain! It also comes in a larger size here which is still a score!

and how about this one...


This gray vintage chandelier has major design appeal! And....only $149!


If farmhouse is your style, then this is your light at $249.99.  It's such a striking centerpiece! 

Remember, lighting can make such a huge impact in a space but not a huge dent in your wallet with one of these finds! 


Do any of these fit your style?

A Classy Kid's Bath




A kid's bathroom doesn't have to be colorful and juvenile or decked out in Disney characters! You can achieve a whimsical look that's classy and elegant all at the same time. I used a simple striped shower curtain from West Elm and paired it with an animal print rug to add pattern and an unexpected element. 

The artwork is Sugarboo which is a favorite of mine! It adds a playful touch to any space! 

A few elegant accessories and classy lighting makes this bathroom fit for just about anyone!

Nursery Reveal


Last week I teased you with a shot from our little girl's nursery I've been working on for the last 6 months! Most of it was complete, except for the chandelier which was just installed a few weeks ago delaying the big reveal. I just couldn't make up my mind on the light, and then I found the perfect one that spoke to me! 

So, without further or do I give you Baby Harper's nursery! 













I started out with a vision of corals and aquas in mind and it turned out that what I really envisioned was a soft palette of neutrals, grays, and hints of color! 

I'm so happy with how the room slowly evolved over time into a space I love! I hope Baby Harper enjoys it too!
