Baby Nook Nursery “Room” Tour (small space living)


Hello Hello fellow readers!
Where did the time go?! My due date is less than a week away!!! Time has really flown by and gotten away from me with this pregnancy. We have been busy bees in the Quarles household, birth class, doctors appointments, three baby showers (I know, we’re lucky!), work, squeezing in dates and sleep, PLUS just prepping and organizing for baby.
Phew! It’s a ton going on.
And though I haven’t had time to put as many blog posts together as I initially wanted…I’m still here and haven’t forgotten about you guys and hope you haven’t forgotten about me πŸ˜‰

DIY Project: Large Art Print Frame for $20! Works for any size!

Hello Hello!
Happy last day of February! Spring is just around the corner! And although I cannot wait for the change in weather, I do have to say I’ll miss winter just a little bit. February is one of my favorite times (NO not because of Valentine’s), but because it my favorite person’s birthday, Kevin!
It’s always cold out during around his birthday, but we make a point to go out and do fun things or have relaxing cuddly or game filled nights together during this month. Everyone is a little sick of winter and snow and cold by this time so we make an attempt to spend time together and an effort to make those times fun!

Stuffed Loaf: The Perfect Picnic Food

Hello wonderful readers!
The end of summer is here and the weather is getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean picnic season is over. In fact, autumn fall weather is the best time for picnics, in my opinion! You guys know I love picnics, as I talked about it a little on my Summer Bucket List last week. Β In summer I want cookouts and grilled food, refreshing beverages and watermelon; but in the fall I want picnics, watching the leaves change color, and getting cozy sharing a flannel blanket! The temperature dips is the perfect time to get close and comfy with your loved one πŸ˜‰

Summer Bucket List 2017: REVISITED

Hello Hello!
“The time has come.” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things”
Guuuuuyyyys….one more day and August is over. September is right around the corner! Literally.
Where did summer go??
I know, technically, it’s summer until September 21st, but with school back in session and temperatures cooling down, it does feel like the unofficial end of summer. Summers are always a little busy for us, family, travel, friends, activities, weddings. It’s great living in a city where there’s a lot going on, and family and friends who are willing to hang out or do fun things! Speaking of fun things, let’s reflect back on my Summer Bucket List, I wrote at the beginning of summer (June 7th) and see how much I was able to cross off this year!
