Fall Front Porch Inspiration

Source: The Teacher Diva (Ashley Robertson)  We are exactly 2 weeks until the official start of fall! Wow has the summer passed QUICK. But I am so excited for cooler temps and fall colors. I recently shared a post sharing Inspiration For Your Fall Table and it got me thinking about other parts of my house I want to decorate for fall. I have wanted to update my front porch since…

Inspiration For Your Fall Table

With fall just around the corner (yay for cooler temps!), I got inspired to create a fun and unique tablescape that’s inviting + cozy. My vision this year was inspired by organic and earth-toned looks. I love the idea of incorporating different textures like stone, ceramics, and woods to create visual interest.

Our Year One Stroller & Car Seat Situation

I’ve shared about our stroller and car seat over the last several months here and there, but I wanted to dedicate a spot for it on the blog since this is a question I get all the time. And I totally understand – there are a lot of options. I remember when I first entered the world of trying to figure out which travel system to get and it was…

6 Ways To Style Biker Shorts + My Favorites

Hi friends! Today I thought we’d talk biker shorts! First of all, what do y’all think about biker shorts? Are you into them? Still not sure? Either way, I get it. It’s kinda taken me a while to feel comfortable in them, and to be completely honest I still feel a bit weird styling them and wearing them as an actual outfit like to lunch or errands or something, but…

Dallas Date Night Spots

Since getting out of the newborn fog, Duncan and I have been making an effort to do an (almost) weekly date night. I wrote a post back in 2017 sharing some of my favorite spots for date night in Dallas, but I wanted to do an updated version since it’s been 4+ years! Funny enough, a lot of those spots are *still* top of my list but I have quite a few additions as well!

My 4 Favorite lululemon Shirts

It is absolutely no secret that I have an obsession with lululemon. Their stuff is just honestly THE BEST. If you haven’t tried it yet, do it!! And if you’re looking for an amazing top/shirt, well, you’re in the right place! I’ve been raving about lululemon’s Align leggings for forever, but in the last year or so I’ve also discovered the amazingness that is their shirts. Between the fits, the…

My Favorite Athletic Sneakers

I’m not sure when athletic sneakers became such a huge part of my shoe collection – probably in the last year or two? But looking at my closet these days, there is no doubt I love them and might even have a problem, lol. I always had a couple pairs but walking has become such a big part of my routine, and because of this I am always on the hunt for…

My Everyday Glasses + My Eye Story

Since I’m wearing glasses a lot of the time these days, one of the questions I get often is which ones I wear. I’ve only got a couple pairs right now and they’ve both in the same style. I wear the Percey Medium in color Violet Magnolia with shiny gold Endcaps and absolutely LOVE them! I wanted to dedicate a blog post to them since they’ve become my go-to and so…

Dallas Kitchen Photo Tour

Much like the photos of Four’s nursery, I have had these photos just sitting on my computer for months and have been meaning to sit down and write this post. My recent recommitment to getting consistent blog posts up has been just the inspiration I’ve needed to knock of a lot of the blog posts I’ve been sitting on. You might remember I shared the plans we had for our…

Recent lululemon Favorites

A couple weeks ago I made a pretty big lululemon order and shared a few of my purchases on a recent reel. And before you ask…yes I did get another pair of align leggings (my downfall). BUT, I also picked up a few new kinds of tanks that I have not tried before and some running shorts (walking in my case). And yes – lulu is a bit expensive but  their…

TV Shows We Have Recently Streamed And Liked

Who loves watching TV?! Lol. Watching TV together is one of D and I’s favorite things to do together. Give us a free afternoon, a TV, and some good snacks and we will be set for hours!! I don’t know if that’s something to be proud of but, nothing wrong with enjoying a new show or two (or three) every now and then. I kinda talk about this hobby of…

Four’s Nursery Photo Tour

I’ve been sitting on these photos for almost two months now, and I apologize I’m just now getting to sitting down and writing this post! But alas, I’m here and we’re doing it! We have been really enjoying his nursery over the last several months and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it turned out. I didn’t start working on it until I was about 6 months pregnant…

The 4 Summer Salads I Can’t Quit

Summer salads are a go-to lunch for me right now. They’re easy, refreshing and delicious. I love that I can throw them together in a matter of minutes then get right back to work (or let’s be honest pretending to work and staring at pictures of Four instead). And since its almost unbearably hot in Dallas right now, I am always craving something super refreshing.  So, over the past few…

Why I Love Going on My 30 Minute Walk Every Day

Something y’all hear me talk about (and see on Stories!) a lot is my daily 30-minute walking routine. This is a habit I started a handful of years ago – before Four and even before Duncan! Since it’s become such a big and important part of my daily routine, I thought I’d break down why I love it, what it does for me personally, how it’s become great family time…

8 Ways To Style Your Bed

Hi y’all! I’ve been hinting at this post for a while on my stories and it’s finally here. I bought a few new things and used some items I already had around the house to mix and match my bed into 8 different styles. I kept my white sheets on for all of the styles and mostly played around with pillows, duvet cover and throws. This was an extremely fun…

Our Trip to Palmetto Bluff

It’s been so long since I’ve done a blog post recapping a trip, but this one was too good not to dedicate a blog post to! We actually had a trip planned to Mexico for this same week but had some issues getting Four a passport so we had to cancel 3 weeks out. Duncan had always wanted to visit Palmetto Bluff since hearing about it from a few friends,…

Home Finds Under $100

Something I’ve really enjoyed and gotten more into in the last few years is home decor. I feel like I’m finally finding my own groove and the kind of style I actually like. And even though moving twice in two years has been a *major* pain, it’s also been fun to get to decorate and kind of make these homes our own. Which is the purpose for today’s post! I…

Favorite Newborn Products

Four just got to the three-month mark and I thought it might be helpful to share some of my favorite products I’ve used and loved thus far. I know how overwhelming it can feel to be a first-time mom, so I hope this post is helpful and insightful! There are *so* many products out there, it can feel daunting to pick which ones to get! I found it helpful to…
