How we are caring for our outdoor rug

How we are caring for our outdoor rug

I love how a lot of you are loving our outdoor rug as much as we do! I thought it was only appropriate to share how we are caring for it so it remains in tip-top condition.

When I first spotted this rug, I did not think about how we would take care of it. Honestly, I just assumed we would sweep it and move on with our lives. All I focused on was finding a pretty, ivory (or off-white), boho, chic rug. And if you watch my Instagram stories, you know how beautiful and perfect it was when it first arrived.

Fresh Friday Finds: Crate & Barrel Wall Art Pieces

Fresh Friday Finds: Crate & Barrel Wall Art Pieces

As soon as we became homeowners, we started exploring a little area in Houston known as Highland Village. It was basically where I lived before the pandemic. Seriously, I would spend so much time in that area exploring all the stores. I quickly found out which stores contained most of my style, Crate and Barrel (C&B) being one of them.

Tips for Hanging Heavy Items in the Home

Happy, happy Tuesday! Hope you had a wonderful day! I am loving this week because we (the company I work for) have officially completed our fiscal year (meaning it’s like Dec. 31st) – and tomorrow is my Friday! (Thursday AND Friday are company holidays for the 4th of July!!!) So happy we cleaned our patio last weekend so we can actually kick back and enjoy it this weekend.

Our Home Buying Experience

Our Home Buying Experience

It has been a little over eight months since we purchased the home. Eight months. And we are still working on the house, lol. The process has been a loooooong one. I told Jose the other day, my goal is to be 90% complete by the one year mark. (I want some things to be incomplete on purpose so I can continue to shop for the home whenever traveling is allowed again. I’ve always dreamt of purchasing home decor in Paris or Mexico.)

House Paint Apps

If you follow along on Instagram, you know we are in the process of customizing our office with new cabinetry, shelving, bookcase, and built-in desk. We didn’t know how to marry two different styles (mine and Jose’s) without the office looking like hodgepodge. It was not a pretty sight and felt incredibly uninspired.

Anyway, I was scrolling through IG stories one day and one of my favorite bloggers was sharing her office. I quickly turned to Jose and asked, “What if we customize it to something like this?!?” I was excited. He quickly shot down the idea without a real explanation. I knew I was reaching for the stars but it was worth a shot, haha!

A few days later go by, and lo and behold, the idea that I once thought was far beyond my reach turned out to be a possibility. He was actually considering it. I was stoked. We took the time to browse the web to see if we both had the same idea in mind. After realizing we were both in love with having a customized office space, we pulled the trigger, and designed it.

Day 26: Kitchen Drawer Organizers

Day 26: Kitchen Drawer Organizers

Ok, ok, last blog post on this organizing tangent I’m apparently on, lol! (At least for a while…sooooo….yeah….I hope you’re loving these organizing tips because there’s more coming later, haha!)

When I discovered these bamboo drawer organizers, I was shook. Seriously amazed at how perfectly they fit and how well they blended with the drawers in our home. (I mean, I guess it’s their job to satisfy us crazies in this manner, right?!?)
