Luke gets a room

home / Luke Blane

Sweetest boy. I don’t know where the time has gone but I realized I started his nursery forever ago and never finished it so a couple of potato stamps later, it’s feeling complete! There is this beautiful wallpaper that I have been coveting, that if your baby is posh and perfectly styled every day, you most certainly will possess. I obviously have a hard time getting these kids completely dressed every day so such extravagance […]

Oh brother. I have at least six posts started that never got finished and are too late now to make any sense… and I did start writing this on her actual half birthday/day-we-actually-moved-into-our-house-anniversary but I’ll post it anyways because THIS IS A BIG DEAL! One whole year of His AMAZING provisions and one and a half years of having the biggest bundle of joy in our lives! So here ya go – late post and all, […]

A bathroom!

before & after / home

As much as I would love to say HOORAY! IT’S DONE! it’s not. But it’s close so that’s something. I figured I should take pictures now while it’s still newish because have you ever tried to keep a bathroom spotless with a toddler? And before things get all marked up and water-spotted, let’s remember the fresh new feeling that is right now and then plunge into using it how it should be used. Asking guests […]

Sooooo that wasn’t a weekend project like I thought it would be. Things sure do go slower with a baby… but it’s done! (sorta) And she has a room!! It didn’t turn out anything like what I was thinking – everything that could go wrong, did go wrong – but after many deep breaths and overwhelming prayers for patience, I think it turned out cute and best of all, she lights up in there and gets all giddy and […]

How far along? 26 weeks Weight Gained: This is less exciting and more embarrassing these days. 19.5 lbs Symptoms: Same ol same ol. Fall down sleepy all the time again… Movement: She seems to be slowing down a bit :/ Food cravings: Chocolate chocolate chocolate. And watery fruit. I found some m&m’s in a drawer at my parents house and man, they were ripped open and devoured before I even allowed myself to entertain the thought that they were not mine […]

The Places We Live : House Tour #2

home / that darn house

I’ve definitely been coming off a bit too eager in my feverish attempt to pack as quickly as possible, tricking myself into thinking it’ll make our move date come sooner. Greg keeps reminding me, “you know… we still have a month here” ..as we stare at the pile of clothes that have now made their home in a heap on the floor since I may have sold the dresser that previously housed them. There was […]

Oh my, where do I start? Hallelujah! This was the first weekend that my husband didn’t have to work ONE BIT in oh I don’t know, over a month! I miss that guy so much. We had the most relaxing Saturday morning with, did I mention? no work! We went to the camera shop to see if we could get my beloved camera and lens fixed but they said it would cost as much as […]

Last week was hard on me because I made the big decision to put away my paints for a while to focus on other things at this stage in our journey. It felt very much like I was losing a part of myself or had failed in some way since I never actually got to see it go anywhere, per say. Hopefully later on down the road, I’ll get to do it again but for now, I […]

Bump bump bump – yes this counts as a bump! Craziness that our little babe has got everything in place to grow grow grow! Gosh, I sound like the goose on Charlotte’s Web. Anyways let’s use this handy dandy questionnaire from every other maternity blog on the interwebs to keep track! How far along? 9 weeks! Last month of the first trimester! Please energy, please come back. Weight Gained: Imma go with 4 lbs still… the dreaded scale […]

Days of Love and Paintings

Valentine’s Day is the one magical day a year where the color gods came together and said pink and red shall be put side by side and actually make people happy, not angry. It seems like such a happy holiday, however subconsciously I think both Greg and I dread it a little. You see, our first Valentine’s together was a bad one and I think we both fear that it will happen again. That was […]
