Very much a work in progress. The teddy bear and bowl of cheerios says it all.
I don’t think I’ve stopped smiling since we moved in. I am in love with this house. And the things that make me happiest are things I took totally for granted when I had them. It’s funny how luxurious the little things seem when you’ve lived without them for so long. I’ve noticed this holds true for Olive, as well as for me.
Case in point, every time I open the dishwasher I feel like I’ve won the motherf*cking lottery.
First of all – if you are one of Olive’s grandparents, STOP READING NOW unless you want to totally ruin your Christmas gift! Remember y’all…Santa is watching!
If you are not one of Olive’s grandparents, read on for a super cute, simple Christmas gift idea!
Even if you’re not a hippie like I am, shopping for secondhand clothing/furniture should be #1 on your priority list. Why? Well, because you can totally makeover your home (or your wardrobe) on a really small (or, *cough* virtually nonexistent) budget.
This is loooong overdue, and as it’s getting close to Christmas I thought it was high time I wrote about how I transformed an old nightstand into a compact play kitchen for Olive (grainy cell phone photos ahead!)
For months now I’ve had a hankering to do something with my hair. Initially in early spring, I wanted to go red – RED! Red like my all-time favourite girl-crush (and lookalike?) Emma Stone. Something like this:
Hot, right? But I thought about the decision a great deal – as I do about every decision, large and small – and I realised two things. One, the desire for red maaaay be a breakup hair decision. You know about those, right? When you get out of a relationship and all of a sudden you’re FREE and because you’re FREE you decide it’s time to debut that pixie cut you’ve always wanted? Yeah, I think this was one of those.
