How to Create The Perfect Gingerbread House Vignette

The holiday season is here and it’s time to craft! Today I’m sharing my own take on creating a gingerbread house. Rather than creating just a single house, I wanted to build an entire village. You can do so by crafting multiple houses, or just one house paired with other Christmas decor. With some help from JoAnn’s,…

Back Porch Makeover

Living in Texas, you just never know what the weather will look like from day to day. Over the summer, the temperatures rise above 100 degrees, while in the winter we’re known to get snow and ice one week, and 80 degrees the next. With warm and sunny days throughout the year, a beautiful pool view, and…

Fall Home Tour with Shaw Floors

It’s fall y’all! I have to admit — fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Although I have to put up with hours and hours of annoying football (and the pre-game on ESPN – sigh), the cooler weather and pumpkins cascading from the front porch totally make up for it! 

Z Gallerie Opens in Fort Worth

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of Fort Worth’s very first Z Gallerie location. The store is one of many high-end retail spots located at the Shops at Clearfork development and is something many Fort Worthians have been highly anticipating.

So much has happened in a year. Hudson just turned 11 months old and I’m somehow just now posting about his nursery! We moved into our “new-to-us” house last January and have been renovating every square foot since July of 2016.

Today is the DAY! I’ve been so excited to announce this giveaway and today it’s actually happening. A few weeks ago I posted about my front porch makeover. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can read all about it here.

Reviewing my Frigidaire Refrigerator

If you’ve been keeping up with our kitchen renovation, then you know by now that there’s been a LOT going on. Since last fall we’ve demoed the entire kitchen and rebuilt it from the ground up. We’re so close to being finished and (believe it or not) we’re actually starting to see the light at…

Poolside Makeover: The Reveal

It’s been a long time coming. Last summer we met with our pool company (Pulliam Pools) to design our pool. Construction began in the fall (you can see the entire process here) and the pool was finally complete by November. We installed our much-loved turf grass shortly after and since then we’ve been SO in…

Poolside Makeover: The Design

If you’ve been following along with our backyard makeover, you’ve seen the entire pool building process as well as the installation of our artificial turf grass. In just a matter of months, our backyard has completely transformed.

My Front Porch Makeover: The Reveal

Earlier this week I shared my vision for my front porch. I wanted the porch to feel traditional, but fresh at the same time. The most important part of this makeover was to take my front porch from a dark and empty space to a bright and airy staycation spot.

My Front Porch Makeover: The Design

If you read my last post (here), showing the before photos (and even some of the progress shots) then you know we’ve already come a long way in this makeover. The dark brick has now been painted a bright creamy white and the porch is ready for decor.
