Well JUST as I said it was starting to feel like spring, the east coast got dumped on with TWO storms in the past week. It was a crazy one! But even though it’s still winter outside, I’m thinking about all things SPRING inside!
This light goes out of stock VERY quickly every time it comes back in. It’s a really substantial size, and it would look so great over a dining table. Shop it here.

Favorite design tip:
Love a gallery wall, but it feels a little too permanent or restrictive? We made these DIY picture frame ledges and they’re a GREAT way to display pictures and prints in frames, but still have the flexibility to switch them out frequently. It’s a very inexpensive way to add interest to a narrow hallway, and add loads of interest and texture. Click here to see the very simple tutorial!
It’s been a longgg week of staying home, losing power, shoveling snow and doing all the inside activities. We’re ready to get back to “real life” around here!
Let me tell you – this stage of having two kids ages 2 & 4 (almost 3 & 5) is a crazy one. The kids are so fun, they love each other SO much but they’re also fighting like CRAZY. Nora’s not so quick to let things go anymore, and she’s discovering how to verbally fight back. Yikes. I mean, I’m happy to raise a little lady who’s got a strong backbone, but it doesn’t make our daily lives any easier – ha! I constantly pray that I can parent these two strong personalities and shape them to do big things for other people someday.
We’re planning out our next “Crafting for a Cause” weekends for the spring – can’t wait to share the projects I have planned for this spring! I’m planning on doing 3 more before the baby comes in June!
Speaking of the baby…he/she is growing rapidly and I’m somehow 25 weeks along already! Everything with the pregnancy has been great, but we’re just dealing with the gestational diabetes (PS – managing this is like a full. time. job.)
What we’re eating:
I took a break from posting recipes on my Instagram and people kept asking for me to bring them back…so glad to know people have been able to find good recipes through me! Here’s our healthy, easy, family friendly recipes we’ve been eating this week:
Slow cooker steak fajitas: super easy weeknight recipe that we all loved! We put them in crunchy taco shells and topped with cheddar cheese, black beans, tomatoes and avocado. We’ll definitely make this again!
Creamy mushroom bacon chicken thighs: we’ve made this Whole 30/Paleo recipe a few times now, and it’s really good! We made it on a snowed-in day and it’s a great comfort food thats still healthy. We had sweet potatoes & cauliflower “rice” as sides.
Keto cashew chicken: This recipe is super simple and really delicious. The roasted cashews are my favorite! I think it’s a little sparse by itself, but it’s a really good recipe to add whatever leftover veggies you have in your fridge. We added broccoli, mushrooms and an extra bell pepper to ours, and topped with riced cauliflower.
Lemon butter chicken: This recipe was a new one for us this week and it was really good! We used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts because that’s what we had on hand, but otherwise didn’t modify the recipe. We had cauliflower and broccoli as sides and it was delicious!
I’ve been dealing with increasing my insulin as my hormones increase and my pregnancy progresses – and now just started on Metformin as well. I was discouraged about this (I’m doing everything I possibly can to control it through diet) and I found great wisdom and comfort in the book I’ve been reading lately. If you’re dealing with gestational diabetes or know someone else who is…this is a book I would recommend 200%!
Our affordable sources for bathroom tiles has been trending the past few weeks – must be the time of year for people to brainstorm bathroom renovations! I searched high & low for the best tiles at the best price and I share all of it in this post:
