carriage house ideas







Someday we want to build a new garage/carriage house.  Large enough for two vehicles, work space for me, as well as an area for entertaining!  Maybe even accommodating for overnight guests visiting?
I don't know when that someday will happen but until then I keep gathering ideas.
The more ideas I have the larger this carriage house seems to get! 
However I will require carriage style doors and magnificent outdoor sconces!

be cool






My children woke me at 4:45 this morning.  Do they not understand how crucial sleep is in order to be an awesome mommy?  Someday they will wish they had taken the opportunity to sleep in because to me sleeping in is a very rare luxury.
Either way, I don't know who these little girls are above but I kind of want to be them...

dinner tonight!








I made this chicken pot pie tonight and it was delicious!  
I probably could have just eaten all of the cheddar, bacon, chive biscuits but then I would have been really mad at myself tomorrow when I go for my run.  It was really yummy and I suggest y'all try it out.


and then Finley and I also made these...
I could have just died.
They were way too good and way to full of cream cheese oreo goodness to have just one.
Try them, they are too good to pass up!

baby and child








If you haven't looked at restoration hardware baby and child, well then you should.  I have been oohing and ahhing over every room on here.  
Adorable rooms and they have given me lots of good ideas as they are out of my kiddos bedroom project price range by far!
Check it out!

I am such a color girl but lately there has been something about a palette of pretty neutrals that has caught my attention.  They are simply pretty.

Kiddos are messy!

If you were in my kitchen you would know instantly that I have toddlers.
Simply by seeing this...

I know, it is disgusting!
It is past time to recover the chairs at my kitchen island.  But you see I kept putting it off because I know that they are only to get filthy again.  

My kiddos are quite the messy eaters.  Especially my little man.  He smears, throws, and shoves it all in as best as he can!  So I guess I kept thinking whats the point? 
But now I am at the point of I can't stand to look at these anymore so I recovered them today.


I had this great fabric on hand and it kind of just worked out perfectly.

Recovering a chair seat is quite simple.  It requires scissors, a screw driver, a staple gun, and staples.
This is one of those things you really can't mess up.


And now I love them.  I think they look quite good!

Happy Friday Everyone!  Looking forward to a weekend here filled with my college homecoming and my family's annual fall fish fry.  Also a chance of rain so the littles will be thrilled if daddy gets a break out of the fields and gets to join us!! I will too of course!

top knots and red lips










I love the top knot, if only I could perfect my own!
And a pair of matte red lips to go along with it.  
And then of course this mama needs a place to take my top knot and red lips.
Sadly my favorite looks only seem to see the aisles of target and walgreens these days!
