{Master Bedroom Reveal} » - […] Our original bed frame was a purchase I made on a whim from good ol’ Ikea when our traditional metal mattress frame had scratched the floor and nearly broke my foot one too many times. It has done the trick but we can all agree that it certainly doesn’t scream luxury and comfort. The new headboard is from Bouclair Home and because it’s just a wall-mount headboard I opted to use our existing Ikea bed frame instead of having to revert back to the metal kind. So that brings me to this Ikea hack where we sawed off the headboard on the old frame to make room for the new headboard. It was a quick and painless hack that made such a difference and saved us from having to go out and buy a new frame or sacrifice the height of our bed which neither of us wanted – so check it out here!

{Second Trimester Field Notes}

30 Weeks! Holy cheese pizza, we’re in the third trimester, people!! Second Trimester Field Notes: Nausea + exhaustion: Yeup. I’m tired. This isn’t pregnancy related, but I feel like I don’t sit down much anymore, so that’s probably why =/ This girl is just like her sister and is already sitting just under my ribs. […]

{Baby Shower Gift Guide}

Before becoming a mom and determining what my favorite baby products were throughout the first year, I used to gift pretty standard items at baby showers. Things like clothes, a plush animal, blankets, diapers – all GREAT gift ideas! But since joining the mom club I’ve wanted to gift my friends the things that I […]
