Fall Dining Room Decor

Here's to a fresh, new week! This weekend, we went to a fun pumpkin patch with pony rides, a haunted trail, petting zoo and face painting and even managed to get a family photo with everyone in it!  That never happens!  It's been challenging to get stuff done around here with having to watch our baby so closely.  She's everywhere and at that stage where she has no fear and can easily get hurt.   I'm always on high alert and her energy seriously wears me out! That's life with a baby for ya! At home, I did manage to put the finishing touches on our Fall dining room and even got it photographed for ya!   

If you follow me on InstaStories or Snapchat (@honeywerehome), you've seen that we're incorporating more blue into our living room and that spilled over into the dining room this Fall with our blue and white vases and large chevron patterned bins.  I was lucky to find such a large, natural wreath at Homegoods and we'll be able to store it for use again in the future.  It makes a nice focal point for our dining room and really says Fall.  

The two bigger vases I also scored at Homegoods and the smaller one is from West Elm.  I used a combo of grocery store leaves and flowers to fill them and the good news is, they last forever.

Our console table has held up really well and you can't beat the price!  We added the drawer pulls (similar here) and I love the way it looks with them and it also makes it easier to open the drawers.

This vintage wood and silver nibble tray from Etsy is an old favorite.  This year, it's filled with mini pinecones, acorns and walnuts, but I change it up throughout the seasons.  It holds Hershey Kisses particularly well! #darkchocolateplease

On the table, I went with a 'neutral glam' style with gold accents.

And continued the blue in the Homegoods vase.

Again, grocery store flowers to the rescue!  I always use white hydrangeas, but changed it up this year for something different.

These look so pretty, even when they dry.

For the place setting, I fell in love with the leaf placemat and 'thankful' napkin at Crate & Barrel when I popped in there looking for a playroom sofa.  For a minute, I contemplated cutting out our own leaf placemats from butcher paper, but then thought, I barely have time to set the table, let alone make placemats!  But, if you have have time, it would even be a fun project for the kids.  These placemats are nice and thick though (and currently on sale).

I'm also reminded to use our wedding china and not just save it for special occasions!  That's the plate underneath the gold dot plate from Homegoods.

We're all ready for guests now!

White Jeans After Labor Day | Weekend Steals

Now it's legit!  Temps in the 50s this morning! Woo-hoo! I'm not sure how long this will last- but we're sure soaking it in today!  I've got lots on my to-do list and some home decor posts to share with you soon!  We've made big progress on the nursery bathroom, our living room (see InstaStories) and also our Fall dining room.  I'm going to photograph that this weekend and share it with you Monday! You can see last year's here.

Today, I've got lots of Weekend Steals to share with you! First up, if you're not quite ready to give up your white jeans, I have a great neutral look for you! You can (and I do!) wear white jeans year round.  That old rule 'no white after Labor Day' is out the window.  My favorite white jeans are by AG but they're pricey and rarely go on sale.  I love them because they fit like a real jean (98% cotton) and not a jegging like so many white jeans, so they fit really nice and smooth.

I searched and found two more pairs of white jeans with 99% cotton and 1% spandex that are great for the budget this pair for $69 and this pair for $79.

Faux Leather Spanx Leggings

Oh hallelujah!  Houston got the memo and now is just showing off with temps getting in the 50s tonight!  And perfect timing because I have a fun post for you today- something a little out of my comfort zone, but worth giving a try - faux leather leggings.  But not just any faux leather leggings, these are by Spanx and we all know how I'm a fan of those

How To Dress for Fall When it's Hot Outside

Oh man, this is so our dilemma here in Houston and maybe yours too if you live in a climate that inconveniently forgets to realize that it's FALL already!! Hello! We're in late October, Houston - did you miss the memo?!?! #rude We want to wear boots and sweaters and scarves and all.things.fall while drinking our pumpkin spice lattes!!!! Actually, make mine a white mocha. ;)

We'll show you, weather!  We're not gonna let a little thing like 80 degree temperatures stop us from wearing the clothes we've been politely and patiently waiting to wear since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July! #somuchgoodness

BH&G Stylemaker Recap

How was your weekend friends?  Ours have been packed lately with sports but we did have a nice relaxing Sunday and I got lots done around the house.  On Saturday, in between soccer and baseball games, my girlfriend and I took a quick trip down to Galveston for my trainer's bodybuilding show. As luck would have it, we arrived while the show was at a break, but we took advantage of being at the beach and had lunch on the patio at The Spot, dug our feet into the sand, and browsed some local shops before heading home.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.  It felt like a mini-vacation with my best girlfriend.

Sweater Weather

We are certainly glad it's the weekend!  This dang stomach bug wiped out our whole family this week.  First it got Jordan, then me and my hubby, and finally James.  Thankfully, everyone is better now, but we just want to relax this weekend!  You have no idea how happy us Houstonians are that we are finally seeing a dip in our temperatures. It just puts everyone in such a good mood to have cooler weather and we're so over sweating our butts off after a long, hot summer.  Makes us want to pull out all our warmer clothes and celebrate with a sweater party! 

Today, I'm share two lighter weight sweaters I'm smitten with right now.  We'll still have to save our heavier sweaters for a little later.  First up is this cozy v-neck sweater that comes in 4 colors and is loose fitting, I'm wearing size XS.

The Best Coffee Shops in Houston

I've been wanting to write this post for a long time, and after such a positive response from the NYC Food Tour post, it prompted me to finally get it done! My hubby and I aren't big drinkers, but we love a good cup of coffee and Houston hosts a number of great coffee shops to sit back, relax and enjoy the brew.  We'll go as a family or as a quickie day date when it's been too inconvenient or hard to line up a sitter for an evening out.
