Keller Breakfast Casserole

My mom has been making this breakfast casserole for as long as I can remember. It’s one of my favorite parts of spending time and waking up at home. Since I can’t be home this year for Easter, I decided to make the casserole for me and Duncan and share it with all of you! It’s super easy and can be frozen for later too! I just made it this…

Ideas, Inspo and What to Wear for an Easter At Home

Outfit Details: Honeydew Intimates Pajamas  Hey friends! Today’s post gives me a mix of emotions because, on one hand, it’s fun to gather inspiration for you guys and get creative.

TV Shows Duncan and I Both Love

When it comes to TV shows, I’ll admit I’m pretty finicky. Probably not surprising to anybody that’s been hanging around BTD for awhile but I just can’t get there on the iconic comedy shows. Shows like Parks & Rec, The Office, etc. – just can’t get there. Needless to say, it’s been very trying on Duncan who adores the comedic characters of Jerry Seinfield, Liz Lemon, Ron Swonson etc. You’re…

Basement Closet

When we bought our Denver home, one area we weren’t sure how to utilize was the basement (especially coming from Texas!). It has a couple of rooms that work well as guest rooms, but there’s also a large hangout space and then a room that the builder intended on as a workout room… aka a big blank room with lots of plugs (ha!). At first we thought that might be…

5 Things That Might Help You Through This Difficult Time

Gosh, such a weird week, right? To be honest, I’ve been confused with exactly how to show up for y’all. Part of me thinks going about things *normally* might serve as a little escape/entertainment from what we’re dealing with. Then the other part of me feels very selfish and just WEIRD producing content about clothing or whatever during a pandemic and when so many people are suffering in serious ways!…

Home Decor that Guys & Girls Would Both Like

I had so much fun putting this week’s shopping collage together because I think it’s a cool topic! Duncan is the first guy I’ve lived with, other than my dad and brother, and it’s definitely the first time I’m having to keep a guy in mind while decorating. I pulled together some items that we currently have in our house – and some that I’m eyeing – that we both…

What to Purge BEFORE You Move

You see, when I moved from Dallas to Denver I was in the middle of planning our wedding and felt like I was completely maxed out on time.
