As someone who joined the mom club this year, I really enjoyed putting this together and tried to think about not only the products that served me really well during that newborn timeframe like my favorite pajamas and a temperature-controlled mug but also things that made me feel human again!!

Fall Bedding Update

I love switching up our bedding and playing with different color combos. I’ve updated it a few times since moving in – here’s how it was a few months ago if you missed it.

Black, White & Taupe Fall Table

I’m getting really into all things tables lately. And truthfully, I’ve never really put together a table before this one. My mom has always been really into china and has a massive collection, so I’m surprised it’s just peaking my interest. But whatever the case, I’m excited about it and am marking 2021 as the year I start my “table” collection. Did you catch the blog post last month where…

My Bedding Details

Hi friends! Every time I do a Q&A on Instagram I get flooded with questions about my bed/bedding details. Currently, I have an all-white look broken up with a waffle textured blanket and some tan linen pillows. It’s perfect for spring/summer. During the fall/winter seasons, I replace the white blanket with a tan one and add rust-colored accent pillows to warm things up a bit. There are many ways you…

Our Year One Stroller & Car Seat Situation

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 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…
