Whiskey and Wine

First of all Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! 

If it's one thing that MK do well together it's home renovation. When we bought our house we sure did know that this basement of ours was not going to stay oh so patriotic. It's split into two sections and we knew we wanted to make one side a bar (the other a movie theater, plans have since changed to a play area, ha!). 

We started this project in early March and down came the massive amounts of wallpaper. We also thought that maybe the bright red floor didn't quite match our style. 

From the start, we knew we didn't want a "sports themed bar" so we took our two passions Whiskey and Wine and decided to use that as our inspiration. The first step was stoning the walls which gave it a wine cellar feel. A fun fact about this stone and plaster paint is that we took it from our old house. We loved both so much we used them again. 

These are photos we took from our trip on the Bourbon Trail. Also this is the first photo of me pregnant, we had no idea! 

As you can see MK is quite the collector of Bourbon. He created a custom shelf to house all of his unique whiskeys. We also came up with the idea to do a cork wall. MK glued every cork by hand, it was quite the project. We will be adding a 400 bottle wine rack in front of it soon. You know, since I'll be able to have a glass or two in the near future.

How about this bathroom! That star spangled sink is custom done and while we appreciate the effort it wasn't for us. So we freshened it up with paint, a new light, sink and mirror. Even the soap dispenser is bourbon themed. 

Yes it's true I have yet to have a drink in my own bar. This was supposed to be our "Summer Project" but when we found out the news about Baby K this got expedited so we could move on to the nursery. Photos of that renovation to follow after our sweet boy is here.

Have a great day everyone! I hope it finds you with a drink in your hand!



Party Like Gatsby

First, Mike and I would like to thank our closest family and friends for joining in on the celebration of Baby Boy Kilgore. From Texas to Florida we had guests from all over. We are so lucky and blessed to have all of you in our lives.


When MK and I planned this "Baby Shower" we knew exactly what we wanted and that didn't include Baby Bingo or a three hour gift opening. We also felt strongly that the amazing men in our lives needed to be included as well. So we decided on a fun Gatsby theme and made it a fun Friday date night for everyone. 


It was the perfect way to celebrate a new baby with great friends, food, and drinks (for everyone but me of course.) 

Thank you again to all of you who came! We love you!


Finally Fall!

It's not a secret blogging as taken a backseat during my pregnancy as I've seriously been too tired to even think. But I do have a few things coming up (like nursery design!) and wanted to of course acknowledge FALL!

Happy Fall Everyone!!!


Has this been the longest September like ever? Yes I believe it has been. How is it not October yet?!?! Even though I've been pretending that it's been Fall since like September 1st I can officially enjoy the décor and thought I would share some with you. 

Last year I made this wreath and this year just added some to it. Also, MK and I picked up these lanterns this year and it's so fun to dress them up according to season. 


The beauty of a pendant light is being able to throw Fall all over it! Ha!


Ok so since being pregnant getting dressed is basically my least favorite thing. Especially being almost 30 weeks. But I will say putting on a cute outfit and red lips is an immediate mood booster. This Target Kimono from their new collection "A New Day" is a perfect Fall transition piece (link at the bottom).  I'll be honest I'm ready for this boy to be here!



I hope that all of you have the best Fall ever! I know I plan to! Now go get yourself a delicious PSL and a new pair of over the knee boots!
