T-2 Days

In 2 days we will be holding the keys to our new house. In the meantime, my current house looks like THIS:

And that's actually a somewhat clean corner. Can I admit that the mess is sort of killing me inside? I generally keep a decently clean house because I feel nonfunctional in a mess. And our house has been a total mess for WEEKS. I'm not handling it well.

I asked Aaron yesterday if he was excited to close this weekend and he said, "...yes?" and I know what he means. The new house is very liveable in its current state but everything is total builder basic. We have SO much work ahead of us to get it updated and looking how we want. It's going to take years (and monies. Sigh).  We're painting the main living areas this weekend before we move in, so at least we'll have a start but it's still rather intimidating! Still so much to be done.

I'll be taking the month of March off Babble so I can unpack, paint, get settled, etc. In the meantime, here's what I wrote for Babble in February!

What to Wear on V-day, How to Wear Vintage Dresses, and 1 Stylish Mama | Merrick

Pretty florals for Spring, a personal style post featuring the denim vest, and comfy sneakers for moms on the go

Comfy day dresses (my favorite thing!), a DIY budget flower crown, and maternity skirts for allllll you pregos out there

Constellation inspired accessories and a quick naptime craft


  1. Solidarity sister. We close on our home tomorrow. We were supposed to close in January, but the close date got pushed back THREE times and it's been a total nightmare but I am SO excited to get those keys tomorrow! Friday date night will be spent painting :)

  2. We are also moving, except we're heading 2,000 miles away to Texas. I've got half the house boxed, half the house staged and am figuring out how to get it all down there! Moving is so stressful but it will feel so good when your unpacked and moved it! Congrats on the new house and good luck with the move!

  3. Good luck with the move! and oh man, I rushed over to your babble article to see that floral skirt in the spring florals post because I WANT IT but am sad to find out it's from H&M because I hate buying online from them, and it's an online only item. Oh well! :(


Thanks for your comment!
