Life Happenings

Whenever I see something that I own on TV or a celebrity has, I too feel like a celeb. Although it rarely ever happens it's fun to see that you have the same taste as people who have 20x's what's in your wallet. Case in point:

I am a huge fan of Jessie James Decker & her husband Eric Decker. They are such a hot couple and I love the way they love one another. So when she instagramed her family on Mother's Day I was pretty excited to see we chose matching carseat canopies :)
Like so excited I texted my friends I was excited haha!

And then just yesterday Hazel Krasinski makes her very own Instagram debut in none other than the outfit I plan on bringing Presley home in!
Ralph Lauren Baby Coverall
What can I say? We're fancy! Anyone else get excited about silly stuff like that?

In other news I have two awesome makeovers coming up. One is this highchair that I found someone had placed on the curb in our neighborhood. David was laughing at the thought of me pregnant cramming this into my two door car. All I can envision is the sweet little paint makeover this baby is going to get. Can't be beat for $0!
Secondly I was starting to stress about the dresser for the nursery. I needed something short as the room is small but was having a hard time finding anything on Craigslist. I have said it so many times on my blog but I honestly rather have my husband refinish something than purchase something new. He does such an amazing job as seen here & here. So when I inquiring about a dresser this woman was selling she emailed me saying it was sold. However she had another piece of furniture she was planning on painting and putting on CL next week. Enter this beauty.
Honestly it is perfection and exactly what I was looking for. I told her hold off on the paint and we picked it up last night. Those hepplewhite drawers pulls are to.die.for! I am so excited to have David touch it up and currently I am deciding between a white or a very light gray paint. Thoughts?

  9. You should do both white and light grey on the dresser! (That is what I am planning on doing if I can find a dresser that is) I am going to the the drawers in a very, very light grey and the rest in white.

    And I looooove that dresser! I can't decide what color you should paint it though...either one would look great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  14. Your finds are awesome. I love an older high chair!!! You can paint it and repaint and repaint it with each kid or theme or kitchen decor! And shutup because Jessie can not be your BFF, shes mine. Wait, she can't be mine, so you can have her, because I would take her husband from her if he were willing JK!

  18. Yes! I love when I happen to see something I have on a celeb or celeb baby! Silly, but fun! Because seriously, they have like 100xs more in their wallets I'm sure! lol! And that high chair is an incredible find! I scoured my CL and thrift shops for months to find one under $100! So $0 - hell yeah!
