    Leslie’s Mid Century Modern Remodel

    Hi friends! It’s almost been a FULL YEAR that we’ve owned our own home. Ikerrumba I miss the action of remaking a house into a home of my own personal taste! I love sizing up a room, using our daily walk to scheme up the perfect new look, and tackling it with my own hands and a careful budget. So in the meantime, I’m going to share some friend’s remodels that make my heart pitter patter. Today is Leslie’s Mid Century Modern Remodel.

    Let’s look at the befores….

    The rambler was centered around a giant two sided fire place. There was a breakfast nook by the back door and a separate formal dining room leading into the living room.

    Leslie decided to open up the floor plan by getting rid of the fire place and the entire central wall the separated the spaces. This allowed her to reconfigure the kitchen entirely and make space for the most gorgeous island ever!

    The cruised on this remodel and I went down to take these pictures to share with you!

    This first batch of photos will lead you from the front door…

    Love You to the Moon Birthday

    My little tot turned two! I’d like to say “I can’t believe it,” but that would be untrue with all the two year old shenanigans he’s been getting into! Loud noises, trucks, driving his food around, boots, hands, and toys in puddles (or any water source), dumping things out, watching construction sites– he’s one busy dude! Among his favorite things are the moon and stars! So throwing a “love you to the moon” birthday was a no brainer! Continue reading…

    Date Night In!

    Happy New Year to you! I’m teaming up with Wayfair.com to share my ideal date night in! We’re big fans of date night in, even if it is a little tricky in the small living space. To start our date night in, we feed the kiddos their dinner, holding off on our own and get them down at 7pm. (Yes, it’s glorious.) Reuben goes down in his little closet room and Ava goes down in our bed. Then it’s go time!ย  Continue reading…

    Practically Cute Baby Products

    Newborn and toddler life is a whirlwind of motion. My son is always in motion (up, down, spinning, climbing, falling, running, splashing, throwing– really he doesn’t stop unless it’s naptime.) The baby just likes to be in motion (swinging, bouncing, wearing, walking..) It’s kinda crazy, but there are moments of peace here and there. This time around I’ve found some practically cute baby products to help get us through the crazy! And not practically cute as in “almost cute,” rather super practical and super cute at the same time!
