^LOL. I’m THAT mom. Creepily put my baby’s face as my latte art while in LA in August & then printed the photo and framed it.. yep. Probably won’t be the last time I do it either!
And yes, that’s last year’s LEAVES candle! If you follow me on Snapchat – you’ve seen that I hoard candles every season and have an entire cabinet dedicated to them! I buy them when they are on sale so I am still using last years Leaves stock that I built up! 🙂
Fitzy made sure to follow me around and get in front of the camera in just about every photo I took, lol! He hates pix but loooveeees to nonchalantly get in each photos. He has a little bed next to the kitchen/living room that he only uses when we are in there – it’s from Home Goods. But the tortoise dog toy box is HERE & this ‘FITZ’ blanket is from our friend, Jennifer Ann Style. His StarBARKS (:)) cup is from a local shop & most of his toys are from different countries & states we visit. We always bring him one home! ^And yes I did sweep before shooting this but Cray-Cray went in and out as he pleased and brought in more grass! I tried!!
If you’ve followed me for long at all, you know this little coffee bar section of my home is probably the most utilized place! I drink a lot of coffee and John doesn’t drink it at all! My mom & dad are both huge coffee drinkers & my sister & brother are not – but both of their spouses are — weird right?! Anyway, during residency John couldn’t get off for Holidays so a lot of times we do holidays at my house so that John can celebrate after work w/us. Having an entire portion of my kitchen dedicated to coffee is pretty nice when everyone is here. I try to keep everyones favorite K-Cup flavor in the little gold wire baskets via Target. John & all of my nieces & nephews love Hot Chocolate (& the kids like using the Keurig) so I always keep those K-Cups in stock too. We all use Stevia for our coffee so I store those in little decorative sugar bowls.
I typically don’t do many home posts & in all reality – home decor is not my ‘thing’ if you know what I mean. I love fashion posts, beauty content & travel updates – but I have less experience with home content. Don’t get me wrong, I love love it all but I just have less experience. Over the past few months I’ve done some polls & studied analytics & it was pretty clear that you all are wanting more ‘home’ posts. I am excited to include home content more & more! I will say that since buying our home a 1.5 years ago, I have learned SO much more about the best places to get furniture, home decor, & also about materials such as types of countertops, flooring, etc. It’s funny how becoming a homeowner teaches you a LOT lol – it is stressful but the end result is worth it. We love our home and really loved remodeling our kitchen & master bathroom. It was fun to see it go from one extreme to another! (To see the before & after posts of our MASTER BATHROOM click here.) My web designer is working to create a tab because after several requests for a home tab, I asked him to create one – which means I’ll have to post more home content. 🙂 Oh and the only reason I got the opportunity to shoot this was because Coco [my mom!] took Luke to Starbucks and I had a 10 minute window to move the baby gear & quickly snap photos haha. My living room now has like 3 different play gym things & 2 carseats in it.. 😉

ROUND UP OF POPULAR HOME POSTS
FALL DECOR 2017
My furniture & decor all come from TONS of different places so it is pretty hard to link everything accurately – especially since some of it is a year or two old and no longer available or not available online. I made sure to add exact products or very similar products to widgets so you can shop as you scroll through. My favorite places to purchase fall decor are Target, Home Goods, Nordstrom, Hobby Lobby, At Home, TJ Maxx, Waiting on Martha & the other places are local shops that don’t do e-commerce. My sister & mom are also very helpful and know what I like so they are always looking out for things as well – my sis is in Northwest AR and has soo many great stores to shop at for holiday decor.
*Having some technical difficulties w/the widgets so they are a bit spaced out but I linked as much as I could in the one below this sentence & the one above!* ALSO! If you use the previous posts linked above – most of them have light fixtures, furniture, rugs, & more linked within the posts!
