In July we hopped on the trend train and had a gender reveal party! Some people think they’re over done now but I think they’re fun! We also had a dual purpose with ours as it was also an opportunity for family and friends to give their well wishes to my husband before he left to serve our country, which is how our patriotic gender reveal got its theme!

I thought it might be fun to share how we told our families we were pregnant as well as how I told my husband! Since this is our first pregnancy I wanted to do it in a fun way without just blurting it out which is also a more difficult way since you have to keep it a secret at least for a little bit!
How I told my husband:
When I noticed my period wasn’t arriving on time (which should’ve been on a Sunday) we agreed I’d wait until that Friday to take a test. However, I’m way too impatient and ended up taking the test on Wednesday while he was at work!
Hey there friends! Today’s the day I finally share the office makeover reveal with you and it’s a little bittersweet. After sharing our news with you the office will now have to be a guestroom/office to make room for baby Cushman! In fact the transformation is already underway! So the pictures you see here won’t last sadly but I’m so excited to be planning a nursery!
Hey there friends! Finally I can share the reason I’ve been MIA! That’s right! We’re expecting a little one in December! And one word describes my lack of blogging, EXHAUSTION! Goodness I never understood tired until now.
Have you ever really wanted to take on a project but you’re kind of afraid so you just read about 5,376 tutorials on Pinterest and try to give yourself a pep talk? And then you finally go for it and you pull it off and you do a little happy dance every time you see said project? That’s exactly how I feel after I completed this painted and stained kitchen table makeover! Continue reading
I have a love for quotes. I also have a love for displaying them in my house. And while I love to make printables I just don’t always have the time or energy to make one for every quote I happen to love. It’s just not practical. The solution to my problem? A diy faux framed chalkboard. I can easily swap out quotes as my heart pleases or tailor it to fit the current season or holiday!
Welcome to part three of an unintentional series, I’ve just gone a bit chalk paint crazy! Today is a dining chair I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market… in July. If you’re doing the math then yes it did sit in my garage for more than 6 months. I’m pretty well known for that. But I finally got around to sprucing this bad boy up!
To be honest I don’t feel like I’m old enough to be an adult. And while I’m still pretty new at adulting at the age of 24 I still feel like I’m somewhere around age 17. Like I feel as though I shouldn’t have my own home or go grocery shopping every week or get to stay out as late as I want. But that’s the other funny thing, I’m also a really old soul in that a good time on Friday night to me is getting a full 8 hours of sleep.
