It was a short week, but somehow it went by kind of slow. And there was even a snow day in there, so I don’t know what kind of strange time warp is happening this week. But yay Friday! As per the usual, here are my weekend DIYs to try.
Still working on organization in January and shelving can play a big part in getting organized, especially when you don’t have a lot of floor space for bulky storage pieces, credenzas, etc. So, I rounded up a whole bunch of my favorite shelves for any space – all $50 or less!
In my mind, you can never have too many cutting and serving boards. Especially if you like entertaining. And I’ve been wanting to add a few circular boards to my collection recently, so I thought I might as well DIY instead of buy. And as it turns out, these leather-handle DIY serving boards are really, really, really easy to make! So there’s no excuse not to give it a try. Click through for the tutorial. Read More →
It’s been sooo cold here lately (and everywhere across the country, it seems). So, I’m doing my best to stay warm with today’s cozy winter project.
I upgraded a $20 knit throw with a little yarn and the end result is a uniquely textured blanket with a pop of color. And there’s even not a single pom pom in sight. Not that I don’t love a good pom pom DIY. It’s a DIY tassel blanket!
This week I’ve been doing a lot of planning for the future, shared my #1 biz goal for the year, posted something long and personal on a touchy subject (SO many of you chimed in already – THANK YOU), and got into some new routines. This weekend though, I have no idea what my plans are. We were thinking about driving to Charleston for the weekend again? Or maybe we’ll just stay home and I can work on some of my random projects. Clearly, have no clue over here.
What about you? Any fun plans? If you have time for a little DIY or two, click through for my weekend picks. Here are 6 DIYs you should totally try this weekend…
The beginning of the year is when most people attempt to put on those running clothes and get back into the exercise game. And I must admit, that I’m in that boat too. I realize that it can be hard to get motivated to work on moving your body again after a month of crazy holiday sweets and mashed potatoes.
Luckily, I have a little trick to get myself motivated right away and while it may not work for everyone, it does for me, so I wanted to share. It’s this…
I wrote this about eight months ago, but never published it, when I was still in the ‘should we or shouldn’t we’ state of mind and even though I’m out of that questioning chapter now (story for another time, but nope, I’m not pregnant), I felt it was worth posting. So here’s what I wrote more than half a year ago and never published, until today. I updated a couple of things and added a few more thoughts before posting…
At least once a week for the last year, the subject of having kids has come up like clockwork, in normal discussions with Jeff. I felt so plagued by not knowing the ‘right’ answer that I’d often bring it up to try to figure out what I really wanted. ESPECIALLY since I didn’t have that thing that I hear so many people talk about. The ‘I just always knew I wanted to have kids’ thing or the ‘I held a baby and realized I wanted that for my life’ thing. That didn’t happen to me.
I haven’t seen many people talking about the whole ‘maybe baby’ thing and trust me, I’ve looked. Trying to figure out if this is something that I can 1) handle without completely fucking up a human beings life 2) if I want to make all those sacrifices that I know Jeff and I will face with having a kid.
So, that’s what I’m talking about today! Maybe baby! Any thoughts?
