Life According to my Phone

I have hit the 30 week mark and am doing my best to try and document more of my pregnancy.  It just hit me I only have a short time left. I want to remember this. I never thought I would take pictures of my growing belly, but now I am starting to really wish I would have embraced it more.

My friends sent out the most adorable shower invites I have ever seen.
My pregnancy uniform. I have lived in this Storq dress.

We are finishing up a  couple of houses at work. This one is going on the market in the next month or so. I really want to just put carrara marble everywhere. It is becoming a problem.
I am obsessed with penny rounds. Ignore my swollen feet.

I still have this 17''  federal mirror for sale. Email me if you are interested

My master bedroom is getting a makeover...

We got a king bed. My life is complete. I ended up ordering linens from Zara Home. I am still on the hunt for a headboard. Recommendations for upholstered headboards are welcome.
Did you know we have a Waterworks distributor in Raleigh? Bird Hardware has an awesome selection of plumbing and hardware.

Tilton Fenwick for Target

It is a little bit country and a little bit granny. The price point is incredible. All in all, this is probably the most exciting Target collab I have seen. If you are not familiar with the duo that is Tilton Fenwick, I  highly suggest you check out their portfolio.
We are in the process of redoing our master so I am particularly infatuated with the headboards. Doug vetoed pink floral already.

If crazy patterns are not your thing, they have some great solid options

I have some major chair obsessions.

I have a thing for federal mirrors. I think it is the Southerner in me. They are classic and versitile. I think they look best over a mantle, where they can get the attention they deserve.
They can take your book shelf the next level.
They are perfect for a formal dining room.
I love them so much I have two. They can add a traditional element to a modern gallery wall.

The actual mirror is 17" (great size)
It does have some wear on it- THIS THING IS NO SPRING CHICKEN.
Email me at if you are interested, no holds.

For the Chic Mama

I have been lucky enough to make it through the summer wearing old maxi dresses. I discovered early on, I have a really strong aversion to anything maternity. One day while hunting "non-maternity" maternity clothes I came across STORQ. It has been a game changer. Basically, they offer a bundle of basics to get you through your pregnancy. Just layer with pieces you already own and you are good to go.

Layer with classics that you will wear long after the baby comes...
