Holiday Home Tour

Merry Christmas everybody! Today is the big day and I don't think I could be more excited. This is our first Christmas in our new house, which meant I got to start fresh with all of my holiday decor. Every room brought new challenges, different themes and, of course, more glitter. I've never done a home tour before, mainly because we just bought our house nine months ago so it has never felt complete enough to show you. Today is the day though, let's take a peek inside...

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas {Under $20}

Can you believe Christmas is here already? I'm blown away at how fast this year went by. It seems like Thanksgiving was just last week. Are you done shopping yet?

Pottery Barn Townsend Coffee Table

I'm so happy to report that we finally have a coffee table in our living room. I haven't really talked about this on the blog yet, but our formal living room has been coffee table-less for about 8 months. It never quite looked complete in there. It was a real issue that stressed me out on the daily.

2013 Thanksgiving Recap

We spent the week of Thanksgiving in San Luis Obispo this year. My dad's whole family gathers at his parent's house to enjoy the holiday together. It is a big deal in my family and we usually have between 20-25 people around the table. 

Christmas Craft Fair

One of my goals for this year was to sign up for a craft fair. It was something I knew would take a lot of time, effort, and guts. {What if no one buys anything!}
