I am so doing this with baby #2!

Every week this savvy couple takes a picture of their adorable daughter on a new background and photoshops in how old she is. This is a truly clever idea and I love that you can literally see baby Clara growing from week-to-week. :) I highly recommend clicking over to their blog to check out the larger photos.

Check it out! These two are seriously clever DIYers and I just love their pictures and hilarious step by step remodeling stories... Young House Love Blog

I may be the only one dreaming of Fall dresses but...

I can admit it! I am really loving lace right now and this dress from Nordstrom is so beautiful!

Seriously, though. After reading J Crew's Fall Inspriation Campaign and scouring the Fall Lines at Nordstrom online,  I am so excited for Animal Print and Lace together!

Update on the house!

We have made some serious headway in the past weeks! I cannot believe it has been six weeks since we took possession though...

{Schoolhouse Electric lights go up in the hallway (they will have clear glass shades and Edison bulbs!)}

Off to take measurements for the new Baldwin knobs and locks we are ordering for the doors! My mom has been such an incredible help painting. I cannot believe how straight she can cut-in! I am so lucky to have all of this help.

I also need to take pictures of my husband's amazing handywork with the Family Room recessed lighting! Looking so much better!

This weekend we will be painting a whole lot of doors and trim! :) Happy Friday to all of you!
