At Home | Master Bedroom

Last but not least, our bedroom! This is the first time I’ve shared photos of our master bedroom. It was always a work in progress, never quite perfect. We finally finished it up in December and it’s been great for us. The beautiful photos are thanks to Sarah Sweeney. Miss a post? Catch up with our Living Room and Kitchen.

I’m thrilled that it’s already March! Spring can’t get here soon enough. Off to Nashville this weekend for a much needed trip with my gal pals.

All for now!

At Home | The Kitchen

When Nick and I started our apartment search a couple years ago, we liked two different apartment layouts in our building. The kitchens were both huge which I LOVED. The one we chose had what I call a ‘nook’, which is basically a ‘U’ shape enclave adjacent from the kitchen. The other layout had a built in desk and was a little bigger. I loved the nook, I knew it was intended for a small round dining table but I had other plans. Those plans were a hammock chair. After a few too many umbrella drinks in Key West,  I decided to go for it and purchase one. I was so excited. After returning, hammock in hand, we tried to hang it. Long story short, the building structure wasn’t what we anticipated and there was no way to hang the hammock securely. Now the hammock sits in our spare closet. Know anyone with a need for a hammock chair?

After our third failed attempt at drilling into the ceiling, I shifted my expectations and moved on to other things.. like bar carts, record players, and shoe storage. The result looks great and is also practical for us.

At Home | The Living Room

This past weekend we got photos taken of our apartment. We wanted to remember this stage of our life and all the work we’ve put in to making our apartment into our first home. Sarah Sweeney is one talented gal, we love how they turned out! I’ve decided to post one room at a time since there are so many great photos! Keep checking back for our kitchen and master bedroom.

The Latest

Hey guys, long time no talk. I admit it’s been a minute since I’ve posted and there have been a lot of life updates since.

First and foremost, Nick and I got engaged while we were traveling in Portland! I could spend an entire post on that city because it’s simply amazing. IMG_1014 copy

Since Portland, we’ve gone through a lot of variations on how to celebrate this awesome time in our lives. We knew what we didn’t want, but it was hard to figure out exactly what we did want.

After much deliberation, we’re getting married in San Sebastian, Spain. Now, usually after we say that, everyone asks, why Spain?? We don’t have an answer for that. We looked at a world map for a long time. There were lots of excel spreadsheets. It really came down to the villa. Our parents, brothers and sisters, plus a couple extra family members are joining us and we really wanted everyone to be in one house. This dramatically narrowed down our search. We also wanted to be close to a city. A lot of times, these villas are so far from downtown or city centre. San Sebastian is also f-ing beautiful so it worked out splendidly. So, June 07, 2016 in San Sebastian it is! We’re absolutely thrilled about it and the months are flying by!

From Spain, we plan on traveling onward to Italy and ending in the Netherlands. Through this entire process, we wanted to put all our time, money, and energy towards creating a trip we’ll remember forever. Although, we still had to actually get married so we thought, might as well do it over there! I can honestly say that we’ve put more energy into planning our trip than our ‘wedding’. We don’t know where we’re going to say our vows, we’re going to grab some market flowers the day of, and we have a reservation at a restaurant that we know nothing about (it’s got great reviews on trip advisor…). The great thing about just having the people closest to us there, is that we don’t feel like we need to impress anyone. We’re just wingin it, I’ll let you know how that pans out.

In addition to Spain, we’re having a very intimate party at CaVa, a champagne bar in Westport, Kansas City. We decided to do this so that we could celebrate with our close friends and family that won’t be in Spain with us. It’s been so fun putting it together. People should really have weddings/receptions at restaurants more often, thats my 2 cents.

Below are a few of our favorite pics from Portland. When I have more deets on the wedding I’ll update!

And I’ll leave you with a little arm candy…

This beauty still catches my eye everyday and reminds me how lucky we are to have each other. This trip started a new chapter for us, and we’re so excited to celebrate in a way that means the most to us, with the people that mean the most to us.

Cheers!!

Pillow Talk

Pillow-Talk-2015_0629

 

Sometimes the hardest part about designing your perfect living room is knowing where to go. I’ve rallied up a few pillows I’ve been eyeing from some of my go-to stores because lets be honest, pillows make a living room.

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6

All for now,
