WHW: Lately

Hey y'all and happy Wednesday! We've had so much going on lately so I feel like I need a big ole' photo dump. St. Pattys weekend we had friends in town and had so much fun. Our town does one of those turn the river green days and the kiddos absolutely loved it. We actually ended up finding a secluded boat ramp on the river and watched the green wash down right in front of us! That way we were up close and personal and were able to beat the crowds. We took the kiddos out to my parents where they romped around the country, rode tractors and played with the chickens. Our friends are city folks so they love a good country excursion! Ha! We even squeezed in a visit with the Easter bunny y'all - on St. Patty's day. We ate so much good food all weekend that definitely wasn't 21 day fix approved so Monday's workout hit me like a brick wall. 

This week we were getting prepared for Andi's open house at her school but they already canceled it due to weather so it will be next Wednesday. Can y'all even believe that she has an open house already for pre-k?! She's SO excited to meet her teacher and see her classroom though so I'd be lying if I said I wasn't super excited for next week! I also have my very first Garden Club meeting tomorrow and I'm so pumped. We're having a segment on cooking with herbs at a house only 4 doors down from mine! 
cue the backpack & lunchbox shopping! *wipes tear*

On the new fixer upper news - we're gearing up for closing which if all goes well, should take place around April 13th or so. (right around Andi's 3rd birthday!) We've visited the house probably every day since I shared the news and we are SO nervous to start this new venture but also SO excited to get back into the reno game. Since its been vacant and run down for so long, the entire community is backing us and everyone is so eager and excited to see what we do with it. I cannot wait to share our entire vision and floor plan with y'all! Although, if you are itching for a sneak peek, here's Miss Andi sharing her vision for the new house and her new room. Gah I love her!

WHW: Wish/Lovelist

Hey y'all and welcome to another What's Hap-Pinning Wednesday! Today I'm rounding up some of the things that make me swoon lately. Wishlist or lovelist - those terms are interchangeable to me today so I'm combining them. I'm trying to distract myself today to be honest because we have some major decisions to make in our household and not much time to do it...just to give you a hint....we may have a new fixer upper venture in the making...I us crazy! I don't want to reveal too much right this second because honestly I'm not sure what direction we're going to take and I need to keep praying on it. However, whichever way this plays out - the story will be a neat one so I'll most definitely fill y'all in later or next week when things settle. So, without further ado, here are some things that have been on my radar lately

1. My usual blue & white decor scheme but with the pops of green I've been adding! I've been attracted to green lately with my scheme whether its throw pillows or actual house plants and faux flowers. Love it!

2. Wild and funky wallpaper! I've always loved wallpaper (my hubby? not so much...) but next go round I want to take it far out. I adore the options below all equally:

3. These ginger jars that hubs got me for my birthday! I was over the moon and this matching pair literally makes me see all the hearts when I walk through my dining room. I cannot wait to put some flowers in these babies with Spring on the horizon.

4. Ok y'all so since I brought it up and all - here is what I was referencing in the opening of this post. I think this beauty is calling out to us to bring her to her former glory! Fingers crossed y'all!

WHW: Loves

Hey y'all and welcome to another WHW link up! Sorry its been quiet around here lately but I've been so busy it seems and now we're on Spring Break at work so I'm just trying to catch up. My birthday weekend was fantastic though and I am SO excited to share a few photos that have popped up from the big Gala we attended. I mean, is there anything better than getting all dolled up and going out on the town?! Thanks for all of the well wishes y'all - cheers to 31 years!

Now I need to go catch up on this Bachelor mess and I"m not even sure I want to commit to it. This is the first season in like 15 that I haven't watched live and I'm started to feel glad about that! Also on my radar - planning Andi's 3rd birthday (Princess and Prince themed with a guest appearance from Belle) which is less than a month away and also my friend's upcoming fiesta themed bridal shower. Can't wait to share more details about both and get y'alls ideas as well!

Link up with Jenn and I below and join in on the fun!

WHW: Spotlight

Hey y'all and welcome to another What's Hap-'Pinning' Wednesday! Link up with us below and share whats currently going on with YOU! Today I want to do a little vendor spotlight so to speak on my newest favorite shop (and shop owner!) If you haven't visited South of Libbie yet ... DO IT! (seriously...) Christine is literally the most talented gal and she's also super sweet! Once I got to know her, I realized we had SO much in common from our hometowns, bay house locations, decor style and even our home reno interests! I'm so glad we connected through social media and the blogging community and I'm so happy to follow along with her business! (Did I mention she's in Charleston y'all? Swoon!)

Her shop specializes in classic Southern goods for your entire home and also offers the latest trends and styles on accessories and more! I think the best part though is her talent when it comes to heirloom quality monograms! We all know I love a good monogram on just about everything (cue that famous Reese Witherspoon quote - y'all know the one) I love the monogram styles she offers and I'm WAY overdue for a major order (Those Pagoda monograms give me ALL the heart eyes!) Anyway, check out her instagram and follow along for your daily dose of Southern charm!

You're welcome!

Monday, February 26, 2018


Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I'm coming at ya from a rainy morning but still experiencing super warm temps here in VA for February! We had such a fun weekend. The local tasting cellar here had a girl scout cookie and wine pairing evening and it was literally ah-mazing. We also had a girls night that night to celebrate my unanimous vote into Garden Club! I'm overly pumped and my first meeting is next month! (more to come on that) Then we headed down to the bay house this weekend to pick up a new vehicle for me (yay!) and decided to stay down there Saturday night since we had already made the trip. Its the same make of vehicle I had before because I seriously love that car. This one has better features and a V6 engine but color and everything else is the same. (GMC Terrain) This SUV is on the smaller side which I love, is extremely safe and drives like a dream. I'm so happy to have it again!

We went on the beach Sunday morning believe it or not and had a good hour of almost 75 degree weather - Andi had her leggings rolled up and ran around in her bare feet and I enjoyed coffee in a beach chair y'all! It was lovely! (then the clouds rolled in and February came back to hit us in the face!) We headed home Sunday evening just in time for the Walking Dead premiere and then headed to bed to start the week. This week is my BIRTHDAY week so I'm looking forward to next weekend already. My friends are coming into town to celebrate and we have a big Gala to attend on the night of actual birthday!

Happy Monday and have a great day! Linking up with Biana & Lindsay!
