Our master bedroom is 90% completly redecorated.  Finishing touches are left, such as wall hangings and possibly a beautiful canopy.  Promise to post pictures as soon as I feel it is photo worthy!
I am loving the weather!  Life is good, I am smiling, and have a healthy and happy little family.  What more could I ask for?

normal day...

Lately I feel like I have been doing a lot of running.  Not the running I would like to be doing, but running around our farm making sure my husband is fed in the fields, chasing my daughter, and leaving little time to sit and relax.  That is until this very moment in which I have found myself relaxing on my bed with my laptop watching dancing with the stars.  Go Jennifer Gray!

In the gray...

Who would have thought gray could be so gorgeous and make such a statement?

Welcoming Fall...




Bring on the jackets, chilly weather, the smell of leaves, football games, and parades.
Is that too much to ask?

Nursery Inspiration

Plain white crib bedding with adorable printed sheets give a nursery just enough color
without overwhelming the room.  Added bonus: white is gender neutral, which means a reusable
bumper and skirt for baby #2.  Just switch out the sheets! 
 Exactly what we will be doing in our next nursery!!

I dream...

I dream of opening my own bakery...
Downtown in an old renovated building with an amazing store front...
The inside would look similar to this one from the adorable movie "It's Complicated"
She had very simply named her bakery "The Bakery"

When I was little I would sell lemonade and famous amos cookies on State Street in front of our old house with my neighbor Lydia.  My stand consisted of a work bench that my mom painted "State Street Sweets" on in hot pink.
I am trying to bake more and the more I do, the more I enjoy.  I think for me the decorating with icing, fondant, and other fun things are the best part.  I just made the most delicious carrot baby cupcakes for Finley last week with butter cream icing and we devoured them!  Now it's no wonder I have put on weight so quickly with this pregnancy!

My Obsession...

Right now there is absolutely nothing more that I am obsessed with than my daughter.

Finley's piggy costume for Halloween!  Although she has begun coloring on walls and furniture such as my living room ottoman, I just can't get enough of her!  That's what slipcovers are for, right?

For Like Ever....

Loving this print... 
For Like Ever Poster by Tracy Jenkins.
I especially love the second photo with the darling baby.
I am thinking my house could use a copy.

home sweet home....

I felt like this sign should be waiting in my backyard after the LONG weekend away with Finley.  She is getting her molars, which left her mama and daddy a little sleep deprived.  Now we are home relaxing and she is back to her old self.  It is amazing how what a weekend away can do to your sleep! On the positive side, the sales were great and Finley got a large amount of fall clothes!  Below is my AWESOME find of the weekend!

J.crew's leggy denim
$88.00
I found these at the outlet in Osage Beach for $32.00 
The perfect leggings for a pregnant mama.  They are so rediculously comfortable and stretchy!  I have had them on every day since purchased!

Thursday pretties...


Pretty images for a pretty Thursday.  So ready for a weekend away to the lake!  This will be our last weekend together as a family before Harvest starts!  I'll be on a mission to find bedding for the master bedroom as well as two bedside tables, a fall wardrobe for Miss Finley as well as one for a pregnant momma!

House Rules


Love these house rules.  All homes need a set of these as a gentle reminder of what is expected.  I'm gonna get my chalkboard paint out and get to work on our set!
