Real Life Ramblings & A Giveaway!

Baby Dedication

Hi friends! I know things have been a little quiet over here on the project side of things, but I promise I’ve got lots of exciting stuff in store for you! I’m just popping in today to give you a quick update on life lately and help a good friend celebrate her FIVE year blogiversary!

I hope you enjoyed the house tour I shared last week in all it’s hot mess glory. Things are pretty much still looking exactly the same ha. But I did get a new rug for the nursery which I feel like anchors the whole room so now I can finish hanging everything else on the walls, then I just need a new light fixture and that room will be done! Our master is coming along too. I’ve been playing around with the decor on a daily basis to figure out what I like and don’t like. It’s definitely a work in progress but I’m making progress!

I’ll be sharing more details about the One Room Challenge and our laundry room soon, which I’m SO excited for. And slightly terrified because we’ve never done a renovation like this before. It’s definitely going to push us outside of our comfort zone, but if it turns out anything like the vision I have in my head, it will all be worth it.

This past weekend was Eloise’s baby dedication and we had family and friends in town to help us celebrate. The service was absolutely perfect and they gave us a video copy of it so we’ll always be able to look back and remember the day, which I thought was pretty special.

Eloise stole the spotlight of course.
