Decorate and redecorate because it’s always a work in progress and never really done!

 

 

Bedroom Refresh – New Bedding & The Softest Sheets

Bedroom Refresh – New Bedding & The Softest Sheets

You’ve seen Jordan’s nursery all decked out for Spring and we’re sloooowly but surely working our way through our master bedroom refresh.  You might recall that, before starting on this makeover, our room looked like this.  Since then, I hired my friend Aryn of Oyster Creek Studios to help with the design and finishing touches.

Last week, you saw the wallpaper go up and the dressers being installed and now we have some of the bedding!  The wallpaper was so hard for me to choose on my own because obviously there are a million options,

A Pretty Spring Nursery

A Pretty Spring Nursery

Hello friends! We arrived home late last night from our Spring Break trip to Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  The vacation was with 3 other families and it was great to make those fun memories with the (9!) kids! We owe our friends’ Dad big time for generously offering to let us stay at his quaint log cabin! 17 people under one roof!! It definitely takes a lot of energy and effort to travel with young kids, but it’s worth it! I’ll do a full trip recap with some helpful family travel tips soon!

Today, we’re celebrating Spring with a look at Jordan’s nursery.

Bedroom Makeover (The Before & Design Plan)

Bedroom Makeover (The Before & Design Plan)

I hope your week is off to a great start! I had a super productive Monday, kicked off with a killer workout, which always feels amazing.  But then, at 8:30 last night I realized we hadn’t gotten Valentine’s cards for the class exchange which is happening this morning, so off to Walgreens!  As much as I like to be on top of things, there are still days when I run around feeling like a chicken that lost its head!  It’s especially at those times that we have to give ourselves GRACE! Am I right? I’m really loving the positive feedback on yesterday’s Daily Affirmations post

Playroom Seating Dilemma Solved!

Playroom Seating Dilemma Solved!

Thanks to Best Fiends for sponsoring today’s post and keeping these boys happily entertained!

Hi there and Happy Memorial Weekend!  I hope you are relaxing and enjoying it with your family and friends!  We’re especially fond of this holiday because both my Dad and Grandpa served in the military, and we are so proud of them.  My Grandpa retired as a naval Commander after serving over 30 years in the Navy.  He loved his service and we love hearing all about his travels and adventures.

We’re taking it easy at home this weekend,

New Marble Dining Table

New Marble Dining Table

Hi! How was your weekend?!  I started mine with hot yoga again and let me tell you, this time it was HOT!!  The first session we were in a huge room and it took it much longer to heat up and even then, it didn’t feel that hot.  But this time, it was a small room and immediately when I walked in, the thermostat said 96!  I was sweating so much the entire time, I couldn’t even keep my face wiped dry! But, the class seemed to go by faster and before I knew it, the hour was up!  I really enjoy this new way of working my body,

Office Updates

Office Updates

It’s only been a couple months since my home office makeover was finished, but even at the time of the final reveal, there was still one thing missing – the chairs for my table, which hadn’t arrived yet. In the final reveal post, I just kept the black chairs I had originally, and they actually went pretty well with the space, tying in with the black mirror over the chest.  

Even though my desk is pretty large, it’s still great to have another flat surface to spread out on and work from.

Stylish Decor Finds at an Unexpected Place

Stylish Decor Finds at an Unexpected Place

Now that my office redesign is wrapped up and fully functional and Jordan has a gorgeous room to call her own, it’s time to give James a room he loves too with his personal touch and fun personality.   He moved into the guest room to make room for Jordan and it’s been kind of a hodge podge since then.  He told me recently that he wants a “Star Wars” room, and he was very specific about how the decor should look, from the ceilings to the walls.  He even drew me a design plan of how it should look!

One Room Challenge Week 1 – My Home Office Makeover …

One Room Challenge Week 1 – My Home Office Makeover Begins

Hello!!  It’s the day I’ve been anxiously waiting for!  I finally get to announce that we’ll be redecorating my home office for this Spring’s One Room Challenge!  If you’re new to Honey We’re Home, thanks so much for stopping by!  I’m Megan, a possibly crazy woman that wanted to take on this challenge even though I just had a baby!  Our 7-week old Jordan is the sweetest thing.  She’s keeping me busy with those round-the-clock feedings, but I didn’t want to turn down the opportunity to redecorate this room, especially after last time!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE

Last Fall I was honored to participate in the ORC and it was a terrific experience.

I mentioned earlier this week that I have some exciting home decor news to share with you and I’m finally allowed to spill the beans!  Or at least part of them. 😉  The good news is that I’ll be participating in the One Room Challenge again, which kicks off next Wednesday!  If you’re not familiar with the challenge, it’s an opportunity to decorate a room from top to bottom in just 6 weeks. The final reveal this time will be May 11th.

Y’all know I’ve been consumed with baby, baby, baby lately, and rightfully so, since she’s just 6 weeks old!

Nursery Bathroom | The Before & Open Shelving Ideas

My friends and family truly spoiled us this weekend with the sweetest baby sprinkle (no registry, just diapers and girlie things since this is our second), and I’m all choked up over the adorable, tiny baby girl things we brought home.  You could tell everyone choose everything with love and we really felt it.  I’ll do a recap post of the party as soon as I get my pictures in order, I’d love to get to share it with you since you couldn’t be there in person.  

It’s funny how with your second you don’t buy nearly as much, partly because you still have things you can use and also because you know that you don’t really need that much anyway.

It’s that time of year again, where we get to look back at where we’ve been this year and look forward to where we’re heading in the future.  These times of reflection are one of the best parts of having a blog because it allows a record of what’s happened over the years.  The older I get, the more thankful I am that I have this digital memory keeper!

Thank you so much for letting me share our heart and home with you.  This year was full of the highest high (you may have heard we’re having a baby!

Lucite & Gold Cabinet Hardware

Lucite & Gold Cabinet Hardware

Finally, the last little thing that needed to be checked off my To Do list has been completed in the nursery – the lucite and gold cabinet hardware is installed!  I searched high and low for these babies and found them on Lux Holdups Etsy shop.  And now they are doing their job, making our built-in cabinet doors and drawers both functional and gorgeous!

When I first shared our nursery with you, everything was complete, but the gorgeous hardware had yet to be installed.  Those kinds of things happen when you’re trying to make a 6-week deadline for the One Room Challenge.

I’m giddy with excitement, ready to show you the nursery we designed and completed in six weeks for the One Room Challenge!  I wish I could just invite you over into the room so you can see for yourselves, but I know that’s impossible, so photos will have to do!  You can find the full source list here!

When I last left you, the room had undergone quite a transformation with the addition of the custom built bookshelves and bench seat, fresh paint on the beadboard, walls, and stripes on the ceiling, and we had furniture.  Now,

You can tell summer is in full swing over here as my posts are getting later and later.  My typical posting time has always been 6:00 a.m., and I’m sitting here finishing up this post at 3:45 p.m.  Morning workouts and evenings where I take time off from the computer are partially to blame, but today, a swimming date with cousins won out.  It’s so worth it and we’re taking advantage of the time to get together.I’m happy to report that James is doing so much better with his swimming (three weeks of lessons down, one to go), but he did wear his floaties for a bit when they were running and jumping in the pool,

Less is definitely more around here lately and if you find yourself in the same boat, where energy is at a premium, you choose carefully where to spend it.  I mentioned yesterday I’ve been itching to get back to more home decor and DIY projects, so our master sitting room was a perfect place to bring in a few summer touches.  I lightened up the space with a touch of paint that we had on hand and changed out the accessories for the summery variety.   It’s not a dramatic DIY, but it’s perfect for a fresh change with minimal effort.

I almost started this post with Happy Hump Day! then I realized it’s actually Thursday, which tells me that I’m getting a case of summer brain where all the days are starting to run together.  That might actually be a good thing!  I’m just starting feel the stress of a rigid schedule beginning to loose it’s grip.  Today, my son and I overslept for camp, but I realized, we don’t have to be there on the dot.  And since I didn’t have a morning training session scheduled, we were able to linger this morning.  Nice for a change!  We do still have our typical summer morning and evening routines,

I think we’re finally starting to dry out over here!  All those days of tragic weather and storms had our city reeling for awhile, but we’re getting back to normal now.  And tomorrow is the last day of school!  My son came home with the big workbook he’s been practicing his handwriting in all year and declared triumphantly, “I’ve worked so hard Mom, I’m ready for kindergarten!”  Man, what a cutie!  

I’m having so much fun with this HWH Loves Bloggers series (#HWHlovesbloggers) and I plan to continue it for a while longer!  There’s so much decor inspiration to share and I hope you are finding new bloggers and instagrammers to follow.
