Living Room Before and After

// Alright, I’m callin’ it. After several years of trial and error, the living room area is finished! Ready for a little reveal tour?

DIY Felt iPad or Tablet Case

// Two posts in one weekend?! It must be the warm weather because I’ve been all kinds of productive. During B’s nap today, I made this smart lookin’ iPad sleeve in about an hour (including snapping photos).

Wild About You – Free Printable Valentine

For example, instead of bringing cupcakes for his birthday treat, we put together individual bags of Boom Chicka Pop kettle corn. I know, I’m that mom. Just one step away from handing out toothbrushes on Halloween! For Valentine’s day Last year,Continue reading “Wild About You – Free Printable Valentine”

Making Room for Holiday Guests

// Every year, Jesse and I host a big Holiday party for “grown-ups” (B has a sleepover at Grandma’s). It’s a fun tradition, and a great opportunity to stay up late and drink a little too much wine! We usually have everyone pile their coats and bags in our bedroom, but this year I wantedContinue reading “Making Room for Holiday Guests”
