Thanksgiving is tomorrow!
Some of you may be racing around getting ready for guests
or cooking up a storm 
I'll be honest Thanksgiving has slipped my mind a lot this season!
I've been so focused on getting Christmas gifts ready and decorations out in preparation for the little one. 
But there is so much to be thankful for and this day is the perfect opportunity to stop and reflect on all that there is. 
For family, friends, opportunities, or whatever it may be. 
Through good times and bad, we all have things that we can be thankful for.
Black Friday, Shop Small Saturday and Cyber Monday...the craziest shopping time of all!
I will be sharing our special code Friday on my blog and Instagram for you to receive a discount Friday morning through Monday night!
So if you are looking for the perfect hostess gift or a unique pack of cards, check it out. 
Wherever you are or whatever you are doing, I hope you all have a great one!

Recovering Chairs
It's amazing how something so simple can change the look and feel of a room.
We were fortunate to be able to buy the dining room table, chairs and buffet from the previous owners.
It's a beautiful set but I wasn't in love with the chair cushions.
{I really wish I had a better before picture...but this was the previous fabric...}
I was wanting something that was more new, fresh, and light.
All it took was some strength to get the old fabric off and pull those staples out (by far the hardest part...but it really wasn't all that bad)...
Picking a new pretty fabric...
And going to town with the staple gone to put the new fabric on!
It's a light grayish upholstery linen from Calico Corners that-believe it or not-is pretty darn spill resistant.
They actually tested this fabric with pen, bbq sauce and all sorts of other things and it was all able to come out just fine!
I am so pleased with how they turned out. 
I truly believe that if you don't like the way something looks, change it.
With new paint or new fabric it is so easy to transform the same piece into something beautiful and something you love.
Happy Friday!

Baby Boy Nursery
It's hard to believe in less than a month (hopefully!) our little guy will be here!
Our bags are almost all packed and the nursery is pretty set to go.
It's been so fun picking little pieces out and seeing his room come together.
And of course all the sweet additions from friends and family.  
I sometimes just go sit in there and think about how soon it will be that A LOT of my time will be spent in the rocking chair and in that room.
I think Brandi knows something is up...though I'm no dog whisperer so who knows!
I thought I would share some photos of the nursery all set up! 
I wanted to go with blues, grays and natural elements.
I love this Property Boundary sign.
 My dad "found" it while hunting and wrote on the back of it for his future grandson. 
Our prayer we would say every night before going to bed.
Brian built it 5 or 6 years ago...
so I painted it gray and am so happy with how functional it is!
I'm in love with our rocking chair and the beautiful quilt Brian's mom made. 
So so cozy and soft!
Now all we need is a baby in this room to make it complete :)
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
