A Look Inside Our Master Bathroom Design

Hi! I am back with another post this week to show you guys our master bathroom. As with most rooms in this house, I created a design board. Building a custom home is awesome but can be scary since there isn’t an actual home to walk through to see what it will look like. So this was the template I used for what I had in mind.

Hi Guys! So, I want to apologize for my absence, but I’m a working momma and to say I have been busy this past month is an understatement. I know many bloggers work full time, have kids, and are still consistent with posting and I envy their dedication….but I like sleep. 🙂

All About Our Countertops: Quartzite, Quartz and Marble

Why I Take Our Christmas Tree Down On Christmas Day

Why I Take Our Christmas Tree Down On Christmas Day

I love Christmas, it’s my favorite holiday. Every year I resist the urge to put up the Christmas tree sometime in November because I get so excited. I love everything about it from the music to the twinkling lights and beautifully wrapped presents. But as soon as those beautifully wrapped presents are ripped to shreds…I’m over it. Pack it up, I’m done.

Holiday Gift Guides (For Him & Her)

Happy Holidays! I seriously love this time of year and actually love buying gifts for others. Last year I kept bragging to my family how much thought I put into all their presents and they were like, “Yea, Kate. We all did.” I kept telling them, “No seriously! How perfect is this for you!!? I am sooo good!” I then stand there like an idiot as they open their gifts because I’m so excited. My daughter gets gifts early because I can hardly wait. Ok, so maybe we all really like to think we are awesome at giving gifts, so let me just pretend here, ok? I have gathered up some of my favorite items as a gift guide for him or her.  In a few days, I will post another gift guide for toddler girls/boys. If there are specifics you guys are wanting, please let me know!

All About Playrooms: 2 Rooms and 2 Styles

All About Playrooms: 2 Rooms and 2 Styles

Today, we are talking about playrooms! I didn’t have a dedicated playroom growing up (did any of us?!) but they have become more common in today’s households and to be honest, we love having one. I need everything to have a “space” to go and her playroom is a space in our house specifically for her toys. Of course, we do have a large wicker basket in our living room for toy storage for her to play if we are downstairs, but this playroom definitely serves its purpose. My aunt Brooke has an adorable playroom for her two girls and I asked her if I could include it in this post to show two different styles. We live just 2 blocks away from each other and our girls are the best of friends.

Playset Makeover!

Playset Makeover!

I am super excited to share our daughter’s playset makeover with you guys, but I need to be honest: an hour after I started this project, I regretted it. My feelings eventually changed once I got over a few hurdles, but the first day was a bit rough. OMG. It was 98 degrees outside and I was convinced this would be a quick weekend project. Um…no. However, I did love choosing the paint colors, the exterior “lights” and the decor. My husband had his own plans for landscaping the front of it and I just knew this would be such a cute playset once complete. I do have some tips that will hopefully save you some time should you dare try this project. Lol
