Flower Arranging Day

Wish me luck and say a prayer for me today. I love fresh flowers so much but these shoots are intimidating. I have buckets and buckets just waiting to be arranged and placed. They are so beautiful but we left home on Monday and we are shooting on Wednesday. Oh PLEASE still look fresh. Heck, just please still be alive! eek


(Thank you Pinterest for the lovely images of what the back of my van looked like)

Trending, Painted Stairs

One of the many things trending at the moment is painted stairs. The styles are numerous and they keep popping up on my feeds.

I really like this crisp blue. It feels like it’s leading you right into the ocean. It also feels very “Mykonos.”

The subtle tones of greige works also.

Centsasional Girl got very ambitious with a striped runner. She did a great job. It somehow looks like it would have the course texture of the real thing.

Not feeling quite that accomplished? You could use removable wallpaper like this designer did. The paper is by Hygg & West.

Back stairs are a fun play to hide some reminders that we all need as we go through life. I think my favorite is “we give second chances” but the one that applies to our littles at the moment is

“we do really loud”….. like reeeeeally loud. Really. :) Love them so much.



Feel like stepping up to the plate? Oh, that was bad. Sorry.

Photoshoots And Move Ins

I am up to my eyeballs right now in another photoshoot (you should see the van!) but wanted to share with you a peek at what’s to come with a future move in.

We have been shopping, shopping, shopping and after months of dreaming and scheming have finally filled in the blanks on many of the rooms for our scheduled March move-in. The following is a snippet of what was ordered last week. I will be writing more and more about this in the following 8 weeks.
