Renovation is underway!

Over the weekend the renovation got going in full force. Luke had some man power down to stay for Friday and Saturday and got almost all the demolition done. Our new door is busted into our bedroom and new door into bathroom is done too and the wall is moved for the new bathroom. I really can't believe it! 
 New hallway to be flanked by closets in our master... kinda like this look (just the center closed closet).
 Can't find the source for this...
And I have no wall into our bathroom... ahhhhhh.
 Remind me why I thought this was a good idea for us to tackle this while I'm pregnant?? Ahhhh... but I can't wait have a second bathroom by the time the twins are born and Luke is handling everything so really all I have to do is stay out of the way. Good luck with that.

Last week was great.

Last week was a big week for us with our big announcement about the twins and also our home depot post going live. That's a lot of good going on in one week and I just want to say thanks for all the love you have sent our way! Every comment and email meant the world to me and made me so grateful for this online community.  So thanks for being awesome.
We still can't believe we are having twins and SO excited to meet them. After being super sick for 8 weeks I'm so happy to be feeling more like myself again. (I guess you see the real reason I took a little blogging break a couple of weeks ago now!) We went to church for Easter yesterday and I hadn't been in 6 weeks or so and I started crying in my seat at how happy I was to be there and not feel sick. Hormones :-)  I'm in full force thinking about the nursery and just waiting to finalize our renovation plans before pulling the trigger and ordering. 
I'm grateful to have this place to share as we go along, so stay tuned for all the renovation fun (and disasters) that I'm sure will follow!

Home Depot post is live!

Our Home Depot post is live! We’ve been working like crazy to get this done and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it. If you remember, this is what we started with.

Eeek. We worked hard and added the deck and the pea gravel patio (well actually Luke worked hard, this was about the time I found out I was pregnant with the twins so manual labor wasn’t really in my future. I directed very well.) I did paint the trim (with a ventilator haha) and that made the biggest difference! So glad to have the stark white gone.

Such a huge difference! I was 14 weeks pregnant in this picture and definitely showing so I was trying to suck it in ha! The backyard is a place we love to hang out in now and I'm so grateful to have been part of this process.

Check out the home depot post for how we made this fun DIY herb garden, we love having it next to the grill!
The firepit area has already seen so much use, especially by this preggo lady who has been craving smores a lot.
Let me know what you think of the transformation after you read the home depot post, it has lots more photos and details!

We are having TWINS!

TWINS! We are so over the moon and can't wait to meet our little ones. I'm almost 17 weeks now and starting to feel very pregnant. I had a really rough time our first trimester, even up to 15 weeks. Struggled with nausea all day and passed out at work one time from dehydration, which was a low point. I am so grateful to be getting out of that stage and feeling more and more excited every day. Luke has been such a rockstar and my rock throughout all this, working and then coming home and cooking and cleaning and still making me feel special even though I hadn't showered in 3 days. I really can't wait to see him as a dad. We are officially going to be a family of 4 :-)

maxi refresh

Its no secret that I over-wear my maxi skirts every summer. I have one in more colors than I can count and finally being able to pull out my spring clothes made me even more excited for this 80 degree weather. 
The how to wear: the maxi skirt post I did last year is one of my most pinned posts from last year and I still go to it a lot for inspiration. 
 Rachel Bilson is my favorite, major girl crush.
