Beaufort Trip

Our trip to Beaufort was just what we needed. The Inn was beautiful, quiet, and served the best breakfast and pecan pie I have ever  tasted! 

(Note most pictures were taken with my phone so excuse the quality)

We did a lot of this
With the view of this

We had some knock your socks off dinners!

We also did a little shopping in Hilton Head. Todd let me a get a few things.... possibly a new huge round mirror for the living room??? And maybe from Lily Pulitzer, because you know a girl can never have too much Lily ;)

Thanks so much Todd for a wonderful anniversary getaway, it's always so much fun hanging out with you!

For the Love of a Stencil

So get ready ladies I am about to take on another project! Does it ever stop?? I am guessing not but, my husband would love to hear you say it does ha!  I am going to stencil our half bath :) I have always loved the stenciled look, and have always wanted to try it out, so what the hay I am going to give it a shot. If I totally screw it up and it looks like shit at least it's the crapper :)

So here are some inspiration photos I love

Now for your help, which do you love best??




Keep in mind the background will be a very light tan, almost white. And the stencil will be in the color I choose.

PS  Tomorrow I will share pictures of our fabulous trip to Beaufort!

Happy Anniversary Todd! Thank for making these past four years better than I could have ever imagined!

Hoping for a couple of delicious dinners, a few nice glasses of wine, and sleeping really late, and if he is a lucky man maybe working on expanding the family hehe! I know that was way too much info, but I am a way too much info kinda girl :)

Much Better!

I am loving the "new" dining room much better, how about you??

Because we all love a good before and after



A few of you asked where the painting and chairs are from so I thought I would share. The painting is from GDC here in Charleston and, the chairs are from Celadon!

Cowhide Rugs........

I want one real bad! I just think it would look perfect over my jute rug! Here are some inspiration rooms that I just adore!

 My living room as of right now. I totally think it needs a Cowhide, do you agree???

Lawn and Garden

This past weekend we celebrated our dear friends Emily and Tom with a lawn a and garden party! The party was held at my bffs new gorgeous home! Seriously I should have taken more pictures, they did a lot of work and it looks amazing ;) She has a salt water pool in the back, and we may have jumped in and had a little late night swim?? The party was awesome, and it was so fun to catch up with the girls! Cant wait for the bachelorette  party in a few weeks!!

Fun at the Lake......

This past weekend we enjoyed a much needed family lake trip! My brothers in-laws have a gorgeous vacation home on lake Murray. They were nice enough to let my family stay for the weekend!! I can not explain how fun it was to spend some time with my entire family! We are all so busy and never get the time to all be together, so it was extra special!

Note: Picture Overload

 That's my dad, not a bad jump for an old guy ;)

 My sweet parents even let the 4 of us have a little dinner date, while they watched all 4 babies!

It really was a great weekend, I love these people!

New Chairs!!

Well I found some chairs today!!!! And I love them! So here is a little peek to tie you over until I get my curtains! The rug is the Dash and Albert rug we had in our Master, and I am thinking I really like it in here?? Thoughts on the rug, do you think it's the right size??

Decision Made!

Thanks so much for all your help ladies! As majority voted I will be doing slipcovers but only on the two end chairs! To give you an idea of what I am going for here are my three inspiration photos for the room! OK off to Mt Pleasant to find two new chairs!
