Pool Season ☺️

We’ve been soaking up as much sun as we can this summer in our little pool.  Our new fence was recently completed so our backyard is officially child-ready!  ❤️ Read more »

Turtle Crossing

Every year, the turtles living in our river cross the street to lay their eggs.  And every year, Rob ends up having to escort at least one turtle out of our driveway or out of the street.  Look at the size of this one! Read more »

My Hats Are A Hit!

Our friend’s baby Jonathan modeled one of my first wearable baby hats.  I still need to put the seam on the inside & turn the fabric right side up lol but we’re getting there! Read more »

New Project Underway

I was finally able to start my latest project this week!  If all goes well, I should be able to finish our new playroom cabinets by the end of the month.  I was fortunate to find somebody willing to laser cut my veneer diamonds, so that saved me a lot of time.  Now I just need to assemble seven more of these Read more »

Costa Rica

We just came back from a week in Costa Rica.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather or better company.  We went snorkeling, jet skiing, and exploring.  Rob had an especially fun time snorkeling.  He is definitely a child at heart. Read more »

Learning to Sew Clothes

Learning to Meal Prep

For the past couple of weeks we’ve been trying some new ideas for easy healthy lunches.  This week is grilled chicken salad jars.  We can’t wait to teach a little one the benefits of eating a healthy & balanced meal! Read more »

Stay Warm!

Rob has been doing his best to keep our cars uncovered!  In the meantime I’m working on some learning modules for work & some crock pot hot chocolate. -Corinne Read more »

Learning to Sew

I bought a sewing machine this winter & finally had a chance to try it out.  These are my first few attempted burp cloths.  So far so good! - Corinne Read more »

A Mini Wardrobe

Recently we’ve started to build a little collection of outfits & blankets for our future baby.  Can you tell we are animal lovers?  The groundhog print is our favorite- we have one just like him wandering around our backyard every summer. Read more »

Homemade Gifts

For the past few years, we’ve been crafting some of our Christmas gifts for friends & family members.  This year, Rob thought it would be fun if we tried our hand at candle making.  After a little bit of trial & error, we managed to be pretty successful!  The hardest parts were trying to melt the Read more »

It’s Definitely Snowing

The weather has really been ramping up since this afternoon.  We can barely see the water across the street!  We stocked up on snacks & Christmas movies to keep us busy for the night.  The cats are napping under the tree & occasionally waking up to stretch in front of the heater.  All in all, not Read more »

Another Project Complete

We finished up our dividing screen for the playroom today.  There are some safety hooks screwed into the back to keep it standing upright.  That’s one more project checked off of our list.  Next up- game/toy shelves! Read more »

Christmas Decorations !

We went ahead and put our Christmas decorations up a little early this year.  They have been up since the week after Thanksgiving & we’ve definitely been enjoying the festive holiday mood of our living room.  Our regular Christmas tree is set up in Rob’s office.  This year we opted for a more cat-proof Read more »


Rob bought a new game recently.  It made for a nice Saturday night after a long day of working in the yard (Rob) & staining wood (me).  Weekends at home have become some of our favorite times lately.  We each have our own ways of prepping our house for a family.  Since we moved in, Rob has changed Read more »

Project Complete

Today I finished one of my longest running projects ever: refinishing & reupholstering a pair of beat up Danish chairs from Facebook market. I really enjoy projects that involve a lot of learning & trying new things.  I would love the opportunity to encourage a child to try something they’re interested Read more »

Our Friends Have A New Baby!

So many of our good friends became parents this year!  Today we had the opportunity to meet this sweet little boy for the very first time.  We cooked some dinner for mom & dad and took care of some chores while we were there to give them a little bit of a break.  We even got to hold the baby!

Pie Season is Here!

Since we’ve both been home so much more than expected lately, Rob & are thinking of getting a head start on our holiday preparations.  For me, step 1 involves finding & perfecting a solid pie recipe for Thanksgiving.  I had my heart set on making a strawberry-rhubarb filling for months, not realizing that Read more »

Gus Goes to the Vet

Our littlest cat Gus had to take a couple of trips to the vet recently.  It turns out he has some new food allergies that needed sorting out.  It was so sad having to pack him up in the car!  He was not happy about it.  On the bright side, he’s definitely looking & feeling much healthier now. Our Read more »

A Trip to Upstate NY

This past weekend we took a trip upstate to do some apple picking & check out some of the Halloween festivities in the Hudson Valley.  Our accommodations came complete with a cat, a dog, & a pen full of chickens!  For the past couple of years we’ve opted to stay in Airbnb’s rather than hotels.  It Read more »

Our Nursery Progress

Since we’ve been home so much in the last few months, we’ve had a lot of time to prepare our nursery.  Our goal is to build an environment with plenty of older pieces that have a lot of history to them.  I love the idea of having a story for every odd little addition to our home.  It creates a lot of room Read more »
