An Update on our Stenciled Bathroom Floor

An update on our stenciled bathroom floor: How it’s holding up + why I wouldn’t recommend doing this project in your own home (without reading this post first) Alright guys, several of you have asked for an update on our stenciled bathroom floor and how it is holding up, so you’re getting one today! I know it hasn’t even been that long since I finished the project, but when people ask “would you do it again?”….I say no. Or maybe…

Sunday Instagram Roundup

Sunday Instagram Roundup via Life on Shady Lane blog

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all been having a fun and relaxing weekend. I’ve decided to start a new series called “Sunday Instagram Roundup” here on the blog since I know that not all of you who read my blog follow me on Instagram, and vice versa. I thought it would be a great way to start the week and share some of my favorite photos that I shared from the previous week here on my blog. If you do want…

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…

Please Bear With Me…

- Etc.

You may have noticed that it has been a little bit quiet around here lately. I just wanted to write a quick post to let you know that I’m still here, and although this blog may not have gotten much attention the past two (or so) weeks, our home has been anything but quiet. Baby Henry is almost 4 months old, and has recently decided that he wants to wake up every three hours at night, and not take naps…

A Walk Down Memory Lane: Our First Valentine’s Day

- Behind the Scenes, Etc.

Valentine’s Day is in a couple of days, and as it approaches I’m finding myself thinking about the day that Brandon asked me out on our first date. We met at work. Well, actually, when he first noticed me we worked for two different companies, but were both attending the same event. He didn’t introduce himself then, but then somehow I came to work at the same company. We chatted in the office for about a month and then, on Valentine’s Day (a…

A Year in Review

- Behind the Scenes, Etc.

A little over one year ago, Brandon and I packed up everything we owned and moved across the country to Las Vegas. It was a big adventure, and the year was better than we could have ever asked for. We’re moving back home to Missouri in just three short days, so I decided that this was a great time to do a “year in review” in photos – they’re so fun to look back on and remind me of all of the…

Life Lately

- Behind the Scenes, Etc.

I feel like the past few weeks have just been a whirlwind – we have been so busy going back and forth to Kansas City,  doctors appointments, a surprise trip to Labor & Delivery, and a childbirth education class. Plus, we have been trying to fit in a little fun as well. To top it all off, we are SO EXCITED to finally say that we are moving back to our home state in t-minus TWO weeks. So, we have also…

Moving Weekend, in Pictures

- Behind the Scenes, Etc., Home

First things first: WE FINALLY HAVE KEYS TO OUR NEW HOME! Also, let me just say as a sidenote that being pregnant is the best thing you can ever do while moving. I carried two (very small) boxes and otherwise just directed where things should go – everyone kept telling me to “go inside and sit down.” I guess that’s a good thing, though, seeing as how these days a trip up a flight of stairs makes me feel like I’ve…

Life Lately

- Behind the Scenes, Kansas City, Las Vegas

“It’s been a while” would be putting it lightly – I haven’t posted anything for about FIVE months. Here’s what has been happening lately, according to my iPhone’s Camera Roll: Visited the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens Saw the Hoover Dam. Ate a lot of ice cream. Top photo:  Glace in Kansas City – our favorite ice cream spot back home. Mine was coffee/lemon curd and sour cream/brown sugar. Brandon’s was chocolate/orange/chipotle and Boulevard 80 Acre. This place is REALLY good and has…
