CURRENTLY: September Edition



While welcoming the month of September (one of my favorites!) , I am joining In Residence for her monthly CURRENTLY link up. 


READING | Smoke by Catherine McKenzie. She is one of my favorite authors and this book has been on my reading list since it came out. Luckily, my sweet sister gave it to me as a birthday gift. 

TRYING | To contain my excitement for decorating Baby M's nursery for at least a little bit longer. I have so many ideas in my head and I want to just jump on it and have all my ideas come to life. However, I am reminding myself that it's still early and I really want to take my time to create the perfect space.

HOPING | For some cooler fall weather! It is September, but temperatures in Michigan today ate still hanging out in the 90's today. I am so ready for sweater weather, warm beverages, and curling up with a blanket to watch football.

DECORATING | For FALL! While I spend most of my time searching for nursery inspiration, I am most definitely tackling the fall home decor this weekend.

TO-DO LISTING | I currently have a "Before Baby To-Do's" List. This list includes many baby projects, as well as painting the guest room, painting our trim white throughout the house, and possibly getting new carpet. And as we get farther along, the list just keeps on getting longer. 

What are you currently up to? I would love to hear from you in the comment section below!

WE'RE HAVING A....

BABY!!



We are beyond excited to announce Baby M is expected to arrive January 2017!

I hope this helps to explain my prolonged absence, my first trimester was spent sleeping my evening away. Now that I am well into my second trimester, I am feeling MUCH better and am hoping to pick back up where this little blog of mine left off.

Master Bathroom Reveal


After a couple months of keeping it a secret, I am finally sharing our Master Bathroom Reveal! This winter, we decided to tackle another room in our home... the master bathroom. Anticipating that this would simply mean a fresh coat of paint and some new decor, we should have known that like any project, it would turn into so much more than that.

Our painting project quickly turned into staining the cabinets, getting a new mirror, putting in all new hardware, changing out the light fixtures, building shelves, and installing a new toilet. YIKES!














We love the way it all came together, and happily traded in all the purple for some pretty blues. My favorite part? Those shelves! I love them just as much as the ones in my living room :)


Happy Friday Eve!

Friday Five

One- Two Months. 
It has been exactly two months since I have even thought about this blog. I am not going to lie, it felt nice to take an unplanned break from it all, but I am really starting to miss it. The good news? I'M BACK! I have a few projects up my sleeve that I've been working on and I am planning to return to this little space of mine to share them with you! Take my word for it... I'm here to stay (at least for a little while anyway)

Two- First Camping Trip.
Memorial Day Weekend, we went on our first camping trip of the season in our new pop-up camper! The weather was beautiful, and so was sleeping in a real bed on a thin mattress covering a wood board. One of my newest projects has been redecorating the pop-up. Here is a sneak peak of the progress so far, but trust me it's no where near finished ;)



Three- Weddings Galore. 
We have THREE weddings in the month of June... yes, three! Last weekend was the first wedding of the season, our good friends got married on the west side of the state at Lewis Farm Market, and it was absolutely beautiful! Two more to go!



Four- Relaxing Weekend.
This is our one free weekend in June, and I am so incredibly excited to be staying home! The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I am hoping for a boating trip, but let's face it... I am perfectly content laying in my hammock all weekend long. Confession: I got all my flowers planted a few weeks ago, but I still have garden decorations that have yet to leave my basement and enter the great outdoors.

Five- Pay Day.
Today is PAY DAY! Anyone else get really excited for pay day only to have every penny disappear the second you pay all your bills? Yup, that's me!


What have you been up to? I feel like I need to play major catch up with all my favorite bloggers!

April from Uncookie Cutter shared this amazing Mixed Wood Wall last week and I'm in love! I especially love the shelves/bar area with it. All of the different stain colors look great as well. I wish I had a wall like this in my home.

A Spring Vignette



This year, I decided to bypass the St. Patrick's Day decorating and head straight for the Springtime decor. Although there is a whole lot of green, so that counts right?
I love creating new vignettes... it is my JAM! I love playing around with the pieces I have and rearranging them until everything is just so. In case you haven't noticed, things in my home don't stay in one place for long.

This vignette was pretty simple because I left a few things in place from Valentine's Day. I just swapped out the pinks and reds for some greens and wah lah... a whole new look!
