Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Transitioning from Nursery to Big Girl Room

Hi friends! Long time no talk.  I hope everyone who is reading this has had a relaxing, enjoyable summer!  Our family has been working hard on not overscheduling and having plenty of downtime, which is a real treat compared to my norm of packing as much into a day as possible.  Wilson is absolutely thriving–...

Family Update

At long last, the nightmare our family has been going through is over. You’ve probably noticed that we haven’t been blogging at all lately, and might be wondering why.  Or if you know us more personally, you are privy to more of the story– that our sweet baby boy Wilson has been going through a lot,...
Completed Kids' Bathroom!!!!

Completed Kids’ Bathroom!!!!

Well, it’s been 2.5 months since Wilson was born and I feel like I’m slowly coming out of that newborn foggy haziness phase… there’s a light at the end of the tunnel that one day I’ll sleep again, and maybe one day we’ll even do more work on the farmhouse.  Maybe.  Right now that seems...
Welcome, Wilson!

Welcome, Wilson!

A little over a week ago now, our family of three became a family of four when little Wilson was born! I had been having contractions for about a month before his arrival but they always stopped… needless to say, mentally I was worn out from thinking “this could be it!” every day for weeks...
Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Painting a Kohler Brockway Sink

Hi friends!  Sorry for the long pause between blog posts.  Baby #2 has yet to make his or her arrival, so David, Evie and I are filling the waiting period with as much family quality time as possible.  We’ve had a lot of fun exploring local attractions (like the Richmond Zoo, cute!) and restaurants (bring on...
Kids Bathroom Update :)

Kids Bathroom Update :)

We are in preparation for Baby #2 (although let’s be honest, poor second babies don’t get nearly the attention of first babies, even in utero) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share how the kids’ bathroom is coming along! First of all– we have a cool new heated floor installed.  Just like...
Rock Wall in Front Yard

Rock Wall in Front Yard

We’ve done some more landscaping in the front yard! Just a reminder of what the front walkway started looking out like when we bought the house in 2013: We have done a LOT of ripping overgrown things out of the front yard (a lot of which has happened to be poison ivy/ poison oak/ poison...
Mural in the Bathroom!

Mural in the Bathroom!

I. found. the. cutest. wallpaper. It’s from Anthropologie and it’s crazy expensive ($548!) but it’s a lot cheaper than getting a real mural done.  And I absolutely love the garden design. Yes, it’s feminine, but it’s not uber-girly.  And since we didn’t find out Evie’s gender before she was born and decorated the nursery in...

Inspiration for the Kids’ Bathroom

So now that the Master Bathroom is done (YIPPEE!), I will focus our attention on the kids’ bathroom, which was carved out of the old laundry room area.  The contractors convinced us to do both bathrooms at once because it would be cheaper that way, except for the tub I ordered for the kids’ bathroom got...
Another New Addition...

Another New Addition…

Two years ago today, God gave us the gift of our sweet daughter and made us parents.  These past two years have made the rest of my life to this point feel insignificant… there’s just no way to describe how my heart has grown since becoming a momma. Happy Birthday, Evie Bee! As if having our now-2-year-old weren’t...
Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

Riesling of the Pyrenees Variety

On Friday, we added a new family member to our home!!! Everyone please meet our beautiful new Great Pyrenees, “Riesling.”  She is about 3-4 years old and from a rescue in Georgia, and we’re in love with her already. She was surrendered to a shelter after hours so we know nothing about her first few...
Almost Done in the Hallway

Almost Done in the Hallway

I have some updates to the hallway to share!  It’s practically done except for the little finishing touches (hardware, paint, etc.) now! First of all, we installed lighting underneath the cupboards.  This way we can 1) fold laundry in the dark, and 2) have a sort of ‘night light’ effect if we need to light...
