One Room Challenge Week 5: A Peek Before the Final Living Room Reveal!

I’m keeping this One Room Challenge week 5 update super short and sweet! I don’t want to ruin the reveal surprise for next week, but also because my Dad actually snapped these photos for me while we’re on vacation. Ha!

Seriously, I have no idea what we would have done during these renovations without his help! He’s been staying there during renovations to keep an eye on everything, make sure deliveries are tracked, and general overseeing. He’s the best!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Gifts & DIY’s For Plant Lovers

Raise your hand if you’re like me and obsessed with all things plants! Our first decor purchase for the new home was a giant fiddle fig tree. I also made sure to incorporate plants into our design plans for the new living room and dining room.

My love for plants even landed me in the Urgent Care a few weeks ago. Side note: If you missed my Instagram stories, my hand swelled up when I was pulling weeds!

We’re all for taking a weekend getaway to ease the stress when life gets insane, even if it doesn’t always feel like a good idea at the time. —Austin and Waco, certainly got us to relax! — But a semi-overseas trip? Ha! We’ll let you know if that was a good idea once we’re back from Turks & Caicos.

Traveling out of the country for a week during the midst of construction was never our intention.

One Room Challenge Week 4: A Very Expensive Construction Hurdle for Our Living Room

Happy week 4 of the One Room Challenge! Since we’ve been renovating for quite a while now, I have some VERY interesting updates on our constructions hurdle.

First off, let me just say that no one here is more excited about revealing this completed room than I am! Trust me! Or well, maybe the construction team at Genesis. Technically I’m only hurting emotionally and financially, and they’re hurting simply by hearing all of my woes and dealing with me.

A Peek Inside My New Studio & Craft Closet

A ton of you have been asking what my new workspace is going to be like now that we no longer have our downtown studio since we’re moving everything into the new house.

We’re not quite there yet on being completely finished, but I wanted to give you peek inside my new studio and craft closet for now! I’m finally starting to get to the fun design portion of the project, which is super exciting. Unloading the storage Pod full of jam-packed boxes from the studio was NOT my idea of a good time though.

Whole30 Avocado Salad Chicken Wraps Recipe

It’s a common misconception that eating healthy means making sacrifices. Trust me, these Avocado Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps prove otherwise!

They’re creamy, flavorful and completely Whole30, paleo and keto approved. All of the healthy fats (hello, avocado!) keep you satisfied and full. Even after an hour of eating, you still won’t have to worry about hangry setting in.

Besides being healthy, the chicken salad filling is meal-prep friendly. You can make it for dinner one night and have it for lunch for the next several days since the lemon juice in the filling keeps the avocados from turning brown.

On The Move + The Weekly Edit

The day has finally come! Well sort of. We’re officially all packed up but still in our current townhouse! I realized toward the middle of the week that it wasn’t worth our losing our sanity to try and move into a major work in progress renovation (we’re still behind on some things!) on top of a week that consisted of Urgent Care, deadlines, and a teething toddler.

Plus we’re headed to Turks & Caicos for a friends/family vacation this coming Thursday,
