Toddler Lake Bedroom | Storyboard

We are truckin' along on the small renovations and styling of our "lake" house. My goal was to have both kid's rooms complete, by fall, and the kitchen well under way. Well, it has been hard to get the rooms painted with little fingers everywhere, so we are making more progress on our kitchen than anything right now. First up on the blog chopping block is Abram's room. I had started transforming his room into a toddler room at our first house, and decided to go a bit...

Our First House | A look back

The house in Houston was our first house together. I graduated with my master's, we got married, and had two children while living in that house. I thought it would be a lot harder to leave it, but after months and months of moving delays we were ready to get the show on the road. Still, it is awesome to look back on that house and see everything we did to it with a VERY small budget.   Before: the view of the house was completely blocked with overgrown oak trees...

Thoughts on 30

I turned 30, on Wednesday. I had thought about that day since I turned 21 (the last big milestone birthday). Life is not what I thought it would be at this age. I am no where near where I thought I would be, yet I have everything I wanted. Last year when I was pregnant, swollen, and hot during my birthday I planned on a festive party for the big 3-0 where I could rock a cute outfit with the same body I had post baby #1. It would be...

My Son’s Leash Arrived Today

I have all of these topics jotted down to write about, but have been feeling like I just can't wrap my head around them. Then, Abram's leash arrived and it hit me, this is my life right now. So here I am to try and lift the stigma of putting your kid on a leash; something I swore I would never do. I have always told Matt that I...

Cook

Unless I have found a fantastic smoothie recipe or something gluten-free, you will probably never see me post about cooking. I would rather paint an entire room than try and figure out what to do for dinner. My creativity definitely did not transfer to the kitchen. I try my hardest and have fun with it when I am in the mood, but Matt is typically the cook in our family. His family grew up cooking together and would center many of their activities around food. He has such great...

The Ginger Mule Progress

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me post about The Ginger Mule. Late last year a friend, Robert, who owns Rogue Design Build contacted me about helping him with some of the interior of The Ginger Mule, a new whiskey bar and restaurant opening up in Sugar Land, Texas. Knowing this friend well from design school; I knew he would bring amazing creativity and craftsmanship to the project so I jumped at the opportunity to help, even if it only meant lending a creative ear...
