Hey! Have you guys heard of a command center? It’s usually a small area of the home that contains all the important things (ie. Calendar, menu, schedules…etc.) for your daily lives and home. When we moved into our new apartment I knew right away that I wanted to create a command center somewhere. In our prior apartment, we never had one and we never really had a home for all the things we needed to keep our lives and home running smoothly.READ MORE
I love throwing a good party! Last year when my son turned one, I began planning his birthday party when he turned six months old. I was really excited at the thought of being able to throw my child a birthday party especially since he is my first baby. So I began the planning process very early. I searched on Pinterest for the perfect theme and then once I found that, I began looking at different DIY décor ideas and planning the menu, games, and party favors.
It was all going well until about a month before he turned one. I began realizing that I didn’t have much time left for all the projects I wanted to complete.READ MORE
What do you think of when you hear the words “living room”? For me, I picture our family gathered together playing on the floor with my son’s cars or dinosaurs. I picture pizza and movie night eating on the floor in front of the TV. I picture quiet mornings sipping coffee and holding hands with my husband. I picture no couch space and balloons scattered across the floor as family gathers together to celebrate a birthday. I picture laughing at my husband’s corny joke as we enjoy an at home date night. For me, the living room is the central hub of the house. That is where we spend probably 75% of our day. READ MORE
We have been talking about changing up the style of our living room for a while now. When we got married, our entire house theme was the colors black, gray, and red. I loved it, but after now 5 1/2 years later….I’m ready for an update 😉
So, I did what any girl would do these days and began checking out Pinterest for something that I liked. READ MORE

Good Morning! Can you believe that the New Year is almost here!? I am still shocked by how quickly this year went by. Every year, in this in between Christmas and New Years Day, I like to take the time to reflect on the past year, plan and dream about the New Year, and try to declutter my life and mind a little.
So many of my family and friends mention that they are sad when Christmas is over and they have to take their Christmas decorations down.READ MORE
Can you believe that Christmas is almost here?! This year seemed to just fly right by! This is my son’s second Christmas, so I am doing my best to be more intentional about creating new traditions to do with him. He helped me decorate the Christmas tree, we strung popcorn and cranberries while watching a Christmas movie, we have been baking everything, and last week we made a dried orange garland to hang in our dining area.READ MORE
Hey guys, so I ended up taking last week off from blogging. I had full intentions of posting something, but never got to it with so much going on lately. Plus, it was my birthday on Sunday!
I told my husband that all I wanted this year was to get PROFESSIONAL family photos taken. So on Saturday, we drove an hour and a half (I wanted to get far away from where we are living, haha!) and met with our photographer who did an AMAZING job! I am so excited to see the photos!READ MORE
One of the most frustrating things for my husband and I is that we live in an apartment. Apartment living does have its benefits (as I’m typing this, I can hear the lawn being mowed. We love that our landlord does that and many other things around our apartment complex to keep it looking nice.)
However, every. single. time. we go to Home Depot, my husband and I leave wishing we did own a home so we could do whatever we wanted with it.
Recently, however, we figured out a fun way to add space in the kitchen and to improve on the look of the kitchen! READ MORE
At the beginning of the month, we celebrated my son’s birthday. You can read the letter that I wrote him on his birthday, here.
I can’t believe that it has already been a month since we celebrated my son turning one! We were so blessed to have many friends and family come out and celebrate with us! It was so nice to be surrounded by so many people who were there to support us in our first year of parenthood.READ MORE
You know all those super cute and girly welcome mats you see at Target and all over Instagram? I love those! I especially like the one that says “Home” with a heart in place of the “o”. Every time we are at the store and walk by them, I’ll point them out to my husband who immediately says that there is no way! (He’s not a fan of super girly things, I’ve noticed 😉 )
