Our DIY Kitchen Renovation

Happy Tuesday friends! I get a lot of questions about our kitchen updates we made shortly after moving into our house. I wanted to share a few before and afters of our kitchen and our experience painting kitchen cabinets for the first time.

Our Journey to Parenthood

Since I was just a little girl, I dreamed of marrying my Prince Charming and having lots of kids. Particularly, five. I’ve always had this picture in my head of Christmas morning breakfast with cheerful little faces gathered around a breakfast table in their pajamas.

Graham and Harrison’s Shared Toddler Room

Hey friends, it has been a while since I’ve posted. A new school year brings a busy schedule and we are slowly getting in the groove and remembering how to balance everything. Graham and Harrison’s shared toddler room is finally at a point where it is nearly finished and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. This project was one we have taken our sweet little time on over several months. Our hope was to create a space that we can add to over time as the boys grow. We are so thankful for extra space in our home that allowed Graham to stay in his room until we got this one close to complete. Graham transitioned from his crib to this room at the beginning of this past summer and we plan to switch Harrison over when he’s ready.

Laundry Room Makeover

Happy Wednesday friends, we have had a busy week over here. We had a sick kiddo over the weekend and have spent the past few days working on a fireplace project and installing a new (actually very old) back door. Can’t wait to share with you guys after we finish up.

Today, I wanted to share our laundry room with y’all. Like most other families, we go through way too much laundry each week. Like seriously, are there people living here I don’t know about? Laundry can so easily end up piled high on furniture, left in stacks somewhere or hanging out in the washer only to be washed 5 times before you remember to dry it. When we bought our house, I was a little sad that our laundry room was half the size as our previous house and determined to figure out how to make it functional for our family. We do so many loads of laundry each week and keeping laundry clean and preventing it from piling up helps save my sanity in life’s daily chaos. One of my biggest complaints about our space was not having a designated area to fold clothes and not having a spot to hang wet clothes that don’t go in the dryer.

Documentary Style Family Photos

I’m so excited to share a documentary style photo session we had recently with a dear friend and talented photographer. I’ve know Amanda from Amanda Raylee Photography since 7th grade. We spent our middle school years having countless sleepovers and have been dear friends ever since. Amanda blessed us with maternity pictures just days before the early arrival of our second son, Harrison, two and a half years ago. We look back at those photos often and cherish the sweet moments they captured for us. You can imagine the excitement I felt when Amanda asked about doing a documentary style photo shoot at our home earlier this summer. Continue reading “Documentary Style Family Photos”

White Modern Farmhouse Playset Hack

I’m thrilled to share our latest project we wrapped up just in time for summer fun with the boys. Graham and Harrison have turned into little explorers and have started to really enjoy playing outside and going to the park in recent months. We live in a wonderful community filled with kid friendly spaces, but we had our hearts set on creating a fun space of our own where the boys could run free, play and explore. After checking out several stores and websites, Sean and I both agreed that the Cedar Summit Lookout Lodge Playset from Costco was the most budget friendly option and also the best fit for our little guys.
