Raised Upper Kitchen Cabinets

- Projects + Inspiration
How to paint kitchen cabinets

When we moved into our home, our kitchen looked a whole lot different than it does now. I knew I wanted to paint the oak cabinets…and as soon as we finished that, I knew I wanted to raise the upper cabinets up. We finally got around to doing that this weekend – I was really nervous beforehand about what it would look like, but now that it’s done, I am so excited about it! We still need to replace the trim…

Life Lately: Road Trip to San Antonio

- Etc., Texas

Last week, my parents, Henry and I road tripped to San Antonio, Texas for Spring Break.  I was a little nervous about how Henry would do since he is only 4 1/2 months, but he did really well. He’s such a good little traveler! Our first stop on our way to San Antonio was to visit the Oklahoma City National Museum (where the bombing took place). If you’re ever in Oklahoma, I would definitely recommend checking this place out. The museum is…

Italian Roasted Veggies

- Food + Drink, Side Dishes

A big, huge, thank you to BRIANNAS for sponsoring this post! There is something about warm weather that makes me want to roast or grill a bunch of veggies for dinner almost every night. It’s so easy to do, super healthy, pairs well with anything, and, obviously, is delicious. I have been a huge fan of BRIANNAS salad dressing for several years – their Blush Wine Vinaigrette was my first favorite (so good on a fresh green salad tossed with strawberries). I’m not even kidding,…
