An Olive and Acacia Wood Men’s Watch

- Shop

*This post is sponsored by JORD Watches Happy FRIDAY! Does anyone else feel like shopping for men is so much more difficult than shopping for women? I’m not exactly sure why I feel that way – maybe it’s because the guys in my life tend to just go out and buy something if they really want it, whereas women don’t seem to do the same thing. Or maybe it’s just because I’m a girl, so I know what other girls…

My Favorite Magnolia Items

The Best Items from Magnolia Market

Happy Friday & Happy Cinco de Mayo! Last Spring, Henry and I roadtripped to Texas with my parents. Brandon stayed home to work (poor guy) but he was probably glad he wasn’t able to make it. About three days into our trip, I came down with the flu while we were in San Antonio. The real flu, ya’ll. As in Influenza A. It’s not something I’d wish on anyone! But luckily my parents were there to help with Henry, and…

A Mother's Day Gift Guide for any special mom in your life

It’s MAY! That means warm weather is on its way right, right? ;) It has been raining non-stop here, but somebody once told me that “April Showers Bring May Flowers” sooo…I’m hoping for sunshine and flowers very soon. I hope you had a great May Day yesterday. Does anyone else remember celebrating May Day by leaving flowers on peoples porches as a kid? It’s a tradition that I’d like to continue with Henry when he gets older – I always loved…

Affordable (and Pretty!) Bathroom Faucets

Affordable and Pretty Bathroom Faucets via Life on Shady Lane blog

You know how sometimes you go into a store with something specific in mind and realize there’s only one option that is somewhat similar to what you pictured in your head? That’s been my experience when looking for bathroom faucets so far, although I have a few different ideas of what I like. I just know I want something different. And the stores I’ve been in either had nothing different, or there was like one faucet that I kind of, sort of…

Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Toddlers via Life on Shady Lane blog

I’ve been thinking about what I want to put in Henry’s Easter basket this year. We didn’t make one for him last year because, well, he wouldn’t have been excited about it anyway. He was only 6 months old! He’s got such a big personality now though and I know he would be excited to get some fun new things. When I think of an Easter basket, though, I always think of candy (jelly beans, chocolate bunnies). I don’t give…

How to create a Modern Farmhouse Bathroom via Life on Shady Lane blog

When I think back on the past year, it absolutely amazes me how much work we have been able to do on our fixer upper. It was in rough shape when we bought it and now it really does feel like our home. A little fun fact: we bought the house without ever having stepped foot in it. I’m not kidding – we Facetimed (from our apartment in Las Vegas) with our parents as our realtor walked them through it, and I literally said…

Gift Guide: for the Home Lover via Life on Shady Lane blog

If you’re anything like me, you’re lucky if you’ve purchased even one Christmas gift by this time. It’s so difficult to choose gifts that are meaningful, and not just “stuff”! In an attempt to make gift-giving easier, I’ve put together a roundup of gifts for the home lover: people who love home decor, getting cozy during the cold winter months, or just hanging out at home. I’ll put together additional gift guides between now and Christmas, but wanted to start…

Affordable Farmhouse Christmas Decor

If you know me, you know that I like to switch things up when it comes to decor…a lot. Since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with rearranging. I’d rearrange my bedroom without even asking my mom or dad, excited to surprise them with the outcome when I was finished. Luckily for me, they didn’t ever stop me from doing it, and I think my creativity blossomed because of it. Now, my husband doesn’t even mind when I…

The best indoor/outdoor area rugs - via Life on Shady Lane blog

Since we began screening in our porch, I have been on the hunt for an area rug that would hold up well in the elements. For a brief time we considered putting in some indoor/outdoor carpeting, but we have decided to leave the decking alone and just pick out a rug instead. I hadn’t done much shopping for outdoor rugs in the past, but oh my goodness guys…there is some pretty ugly stuff out there. I’m not quite sure why…

My Favorite IKEA Items

I will admit, I was a little (ok, a lot) behind when it came to jumping on the IKEA train. But that’s only because we didn’t have one in my city for a looong time. Then, when they finally built one I was living in Las Vegas. So when we moved back to the midwest, I made a trip as soon as I could. The place is overwhelming. They sell so much STUFF and the way they set everything up makes…

Nursery Inspiration

While we’re not exactly not at all settled in one place just yet, I’ve been thinking about this baby’s nursery for quite some time and can’t wait to get it all put together. I only have 8 weeks to go, so I’m not very confident that it will be put together before he gets here, but the good news is that he can sleep in our room in a bassinet for a while. Plus, all of this time to plan has…
