coffee cart + lattes at home

for a long time i've wanted to create a little coffee cart for in my home. i finally made my dream coffee cart into a reality a couple years ago & don't know why i never really shared it. it's super adorable and can be moved around to any part of the house since it has wheels (which is nice because i like to rearrange and sometimes have to for babyproofing reasons).

desk space

something i've been wanting for our home for a little while now is a desk. recently i've been even more anxious to get one in hopes that it will boost my productivity and allow me to give my best effort at blogging again. i had my eye on a west elm desk and we were purging our garage, so what better way to add some moolah to our desk fund than to sell our crap on facebook marketplace?

Milo's Nursery

Ta da! Milo's nursery is finally 99.99% finished! (Yeah, I couldn't wait for the finishing touches to show you guys, I'm just waaaay too excited!) At long last the sweet baby room is done, with less than a week til my due date! We worked pretty hard on it and it's taken a little while to bring all my visions to life, but it was well worth it. I'm so in love with this room. It's definitely my new favorite place in the house. I actually go in there at least once a day and stare at everything. I'm legit the heart eyes emoji, just standing there, gazing at the adorable-ness.

guest room tour

For the past year I've been absolutely dying to create a cozy space for guests to stay when they come to visit us. When I get my mind set on something, it's really difficult for me to let it go. When we got our tax returns this year, we decided to get a rug and do some things for our spare room. We had pretty much nothing for guests, so I was on a mission to find a cheap bed for the room. Last year, when we went to Ikea to buy our new couch, I purchased a duvet cover for our nonexistent guest room. I had a vision in my head, including the adorable springy bedding I bought and the gorgeous white metal bed frame also from Ikea.

30 minute chicken pesto pasta

'm always looking for things to blog about and I'm always looking for new recipes. So I thought, why not combine the two? I was thinking I could try a new recipe every month and then share it with you guys! I found a couple different recipes on pinterest and combined them for this one. I've been wanting to try making pesto, so this chicken pesto pasta was perfect!

Our 5th Valentine's Day

Mack and I celebrated our 5th Valentine's Day together this year and I have to say - it was the best one yet!! In past years we've gone on dates, Mack has skipped class to bring me flowers & a poem, we've eaten lots of sushi, and Mack even cooked for me one year! We don't generally do presents on Valentine's Day, which I'm fine with, but we didn't really have much of a plan this year. We stayed in bed for a looooonggg time and finally decided that we were going to stay in for dinner and cook ourselves something "fancy".

DIY Chocolate Covered Spoons

I've been thinking about doing this project since December! I was originally going to do these for little gifts around the holidays, but I got really caught up with doing other things (like neverending Christmas cookies & wrapping presents) so it didn't happen. But with Valentine's Day coming up, I knew I could do something adorable with this idea. I had been inspired by some other spoons I saw on pinterest, and thought getting some interesting pieces from thrift stores would take these to the next level!
