One Room Challenge Week 3: The Dining Room Design Plan

Hellooooo to week 3 of the One Room Challenge! Last week I shared the run-down on visual design plans for our living room portion of our open floorplan. This week it’s all about our dining room design plan.

Since we have quite a bit of color happening in our living room design, I wanted to keep the dining space more neutral, especially since we’ll be using it for entertaining content around here!

The featured photo is the general idea of the room placement and the below round-up graphic gives you a better idea of the specific elements by themselves.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Dip Recipe & Dessert Board

Have you seen the gorgeous dessert boards popping up on Instagram? They’re basically a charcuterie board but instead of cheese, olives, and meats, you have cookies, chocolate and fruit piled high. Not a bad trade off, right?!

This Raspberry Cream Cheese Dip is a great way to take your dessert board to the next level. It’s creamy (with just a hint of tartness), lightly sweet and compliments pretty much anything you want to dip with it. It’s also so,

Good Ol’ Days Are Still To Come + House Timeline + The Weekly Edit

The good ol’ days are still to come! This signage caught our eyes during our Magnolia Market trip. It perfectly summed up how we were feeling. We’ve faced so many move-in setbacks and crazy life hurdles, but now we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for sure!

We’re in crazy packing mode to get everything from our old house (aside from the big pieces of furniture!) packed up to move to the new house this coming THURSDAY!

One Room Challenge Week 2: The Living Room Design Plan + Pain Points

I’m very excited to get to the fun stuff with our living room design plan for this week’s One Room Challenge update! If you missed week 1, you can find all of the VERY underwhelming before photos of our new living room right here.

We’re technically redesigning our open concept living room + dining room, but my photoshop skills aren’t sharp enough for squeezing both into one visual. So, we’re settling for breaking them into two updates.

Sugar & Cloth Casa: Before & After of Installing Skylights in The New House

I seriously cannot tell you how much I am freaking out over these before and afters! When we finally closed on the new house, the VERY first thing I wanted to do was rip down all of the old curtains and pray for better natural light. The entire front side of the house had no windows so the interior hallway and bedrooms upstairs were horribly dark. We started looking into installing skylights and finally landed on Velux skylights and sun tunnels.

Happenings + A Little Too Honest + The Weekly Edit

Never believe everything on the internet. Our lives may look Pinterest perfect, but we hope you don’t think so! Our goal has always been to document the good, bad, and the sort of ugly. Let’s be real, no one wants the REAL ugly. I’m looking at you diaper incidents…According to some, I’m honest to a fault.

I just don’t feel right not giving you the full picture. Parenting, home renovating, full-time blogging,

15 Healthy Easter Candy Ideas

Easter would probably be more pleasant without dealing with the sugar high’s and low’s. However, we’re not saying to completely ditch the candy. What would Easter be without the chocolate bunnies and Peeps?!? As you know, we are all about the unconventional Easter basket and the same goes for our candy stuffers.

We’re swapping out a lot of the traditional holiday candy because Gwen is THAT kid who goes bananas with a little taste of sugar.
