Our Cozy Living Space

You sent lots of love my way when I shared my home office space, so I thought I would share a little more of our cozy home. You can see the full office space reveal here. We keep a simple, cozy and slightly eclectic style to our home. It fits our personalities perfectly. It’s so important to style your home in a natural manner. Never force a style, just let it flow and you’ll always be happy with the end result.

Pillows and throws are two items I can never seem to get enough of. A couch filled with pillows and multiple throws keeps our space cozy yet stylish. See more of our living room space and grab a Wayfair discount code below!  Continue reading

Mini Blueberry Pie Filling Cornbread Muffins

During the holiday season we get reacquainted with leftovers. Sometimes the leftovers are odds and ends, such as pie filling. I recently made a small pie and had a decent amount of blueberry pie filling remaining that I didn’t want to simply toss. Insert mini blueberry pie filling cornbread muffins!

These cornbread muffins are different, but in a totally good way. If you prefer a not-so-sweet breakfast treat you’re going to love these littles! The husband and I enjoyed trying these this past weekend. This holiday season take those odd leftover ingredients and try something new! Grab the full recipe details below.

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year. There’s so much cheer all around and it’s impossible to not be filled with joy. Lucky for me, Christmas in Florida tends to present with ample sunshine and perfect weather. I must admit that I LOVE seeing snow on Christmas and we’re blessed to spend the holidays in the mountains every other year. Regardless of weather conditions a Bluetooth ready Christmas playlist is all that is required to create a cheerful Holiday atmosphere.

I’ve teamed up with JBL to share my favorite Christmas playlist, a must-buy gift for music lovers, a giveaway and more!

Pumpkin Sweets Dessert Table and Bread Pudding Recipe

Happy Monday, friends! We are just 10 days away from Thanksgiving. Whoa. In gearing up for one of my favorite holidays I created a simple yet fancy dessert table display for my guests to enjoy. An all things pumpkin desserts display, of course. As the delicious holiday approaches I find myself sampling pie with cool whip multiple times before Thanksgiving day actually arrives. You totally do the same thing, I know it.

Creating a dessert table or food display doesn’t have to be a stressful fete. Setting up a themed dessert station for your guests to enjoy should be simple, fun and have a touch of fancy to it. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at bread pudding (one of my most favorite desserts) for awhile and Thanksgiving presents the best time to do so! Plus, I get to showcase my new recipe creation on a unique dessert table display. Win win. Grab the pumpkin pie bread pudding recipe along with my go-to holiday food table set up tips below!  Continue reading

Oh Baby / Our Disney Babymoon

Babymoon at Disney

Last weekend we took a mini getaway aka our babymoon. I was shocked by how many people haven’t heard of this celebration. Some friends thought I made it up to get a free trip. I can not take credit for babymoons. These genius getaways were created by someone else and I’ll forever appreciate they exist. So what’s a babymoon? It’s a time set aside for the soon to be parents to enjoy before baby’s arrival. The physician highly recommends these trips in the second trimester, early third trimester at the latest. In just a few short months our little guy will be here and we wanted to soak up some time together before.

We debated for weeks on where to go. It was a tough call between staying local or making a trip to Savannah. I get tired often so after much debate we decided a local getaway to a relaxing Disney resort would be best. A great decision!  Continue reading
