Yoga Studio at Home


Hello, friends!

Our front room has already been designed in my head with a grand French gold leaner mirror, a blush pink velvet sofa with English turned legs, handwoven high pile rug, round coffee table, & accent chairs that will make any guest want to stay a little longer. It'll be 6-9 months before we can start on this space. We've got a big exterior project coming up this spring & our powder room renovation starts on Monday! Very excited to share those projects with you soon.

A Pink Valentine's Day


Magnolia thinks Valentine's Day is all about her puppy, Valentine Lollipop. To see the way she has made Valentine's Day into a special holiday all about her dog is just the cutest thing ever. And with a dog named after love day we had to go all out this year. We finally had the groomer make her cotton candy pink & every time I look at her I giggle inside. Magnolia thinks it's the coolest thing of all time & I'm certain she will remember this Valentine's Day for the rest of her life. I'm thinking we will keep her pink until Easter & then switch it up this summer and make her baby blue for the Kansas City Royals! We used Opawz color shampoo & it turned out exactly as I had hoped --- the perfect cotton candy pink!!!

Three Fun & Easy Valentine's Day Ideas in the Kitchen


The last weekend before Valentine's Day is here & I thought it'd be fun to share a few of the ways we celebrate love day in the kitchen.

Make your loved ones feel spoiled by throwing together a little fruit & sweets board. I made this one for Magnolia's birthday party & I may throw together another one like it with more heart shaped cookies & candies. Trader Joe's is the place to go for flowers, fruit, and all the holiday inspired desserts & treats.


Teddy Bears hugging hearts, is there anything sweeter!?! This is hands down the easiest little treat to make & perfect for all age groups! And by all ages, I mean toddler all the way up to grandmas and grandpas. I can imagine myself doing this in the kitchen with my grandma if she were still here. You'll only need to pick up three things from the store: teddy grahams, icing & conversation hearts.


Show your babes how much you love them with a surprise breakfast of homemade pop-tarts overloaded with pink, red & heart shaped sprinkles!

You can find the ingredients & recipe over here.


Celebrate them xo

Magnolia's Third Birthday


Who knew a trip to the shopping mall would be so much fun!?!

Ryan took the day of Magnolia's birthday off work so that we could take her out to do something special on her actual birthday. We had plans to take her to lunch & to a children's museum & on the way I realized they are closed on Mondays. As we were driving I was trying to think of a new & equally fun idea. It was another gorgeous sunny 60 degree day so I said let's head to the farmstead. From the backseat our little birthday girl got so excited to see all the animals. And then I found that they are not open for the season yet. We needed a new idea fast because we were driving aimlessly and Ryan had a flight out to California that put us on a time schedule. SKY ZONE, that'll be perfect, she can jump around on the trampolines. I could not even believe it, they were closed too!!!

Magnolia's Magical Princess Unicorn Third Birthday Party


February 3rd, 2017 at 8:14 pm a little 6 pound 12 ounces baby girl came into our lives & changed our world forever. The gift of Magnolia Caroline is never lost on us. Even when days are hard & we are tested, we have this bright-eyed girl to remind us of God's promises to us. As I trusted in God's perfect timing, as I prayed with all my heart & soul for a baby, I knew when our baby arrived I would always give all the glory to God. Every single day, every single moment of being her mother I am flooded with the deepest feeling of gratitude. My veins run with "thank you God" always! It's hard to think I would ever say I'm thankful for the fight to have her, but looking back, I know it changed me into a mother that knows & deeply remembers the ache, the fear, the heartache of life before her. Her beautiful soul is the greatest gift of our lives.

Music, Snow & Cousin Sleepover


Happy Monday, dear friends! One week to go until our Kansas City Chiefs are in the Super Bowl & even more exciting (for the mommy in me) Magnolia's third unicorn princess birthday party!!! I cannot believe my baby is almost three years old. She picked her birthday theme & calls it "ono-corn!" and it melts me. We have two big gifts planned for her & I cannot wait to see the surprise in her eyes. She's getting a dollhouse from us & my sisters + parents went in on a group gift for her. A car!!! A ride-on remote control car, all my mom's idea, and she is going to flip out when she opens it. We are doing a treasure hunt + face painting & jewels and I'm making a layered chocolate chip cookie cake + cupcakes. And balloons, tons and tons of balloons! The weather is going to be gorgeous & I really want to rent a unicorn, but we've already got so much planned I don't think we will have time.

Loss & Hope


When we moved into our new home a few months ago, I boldly said this room would be the nursery. The place that holds all of our cherished baby items. It's the room I peek into every day & wonder when we'll have another baby. This room represents faith, faith that one day our family will grow & that Magnolia will have a baby brother or sister.

Magnolia's Playroom & Our Current Favorite Books


Magnolia's playroom is one of our favorite rooms in the house. The bay windows make it feel sunshiny and bright all day long. I love watching her play & create & I snapped some photos of her room in its natural element this weekend while she was singing her heart out to Frozen II. Seeing her baby dolls, glitter shoes, iced cupcakes and just all of her toys thrown all over the place is something that always makes me smile. And then with a smile I clean it up during her naps, because I like it to be tidy, and honestly I find it therapeutic in some odd way. Maybe because cleaning her sweet little pink kitchen is way more fun than cleaning mine!

Christmas 2019


Happy New Year friends, 2020 it's kind of a fun year to say, or maybe it's because Magnolia says it in the most adorable way! The Christmas season was a magical one & especially so because we got to spend it in our new home. I'm so grateful that the holiday season was the first season in our home. All the festive first memories we made here were the warm & fuzzy kind. And all but two boxes were unpacked by Christmas!
