Our new Colorado house picture tour!

We bought a house! We officially live in Colorado now. Now more hotel nights for us. We have been swamped with moving in, buying furniture, doing some urgent DIY projects, and still trying to find time to actually eat and sleep, so today's post will be quick. Here are all the MLS pictures of our house when it was on the market. Keep in mind the furniture is all the previous owners and we've already started updating it. Front of house: Family room: Kitchen: Foyer: Formal Living: Dining: Master Bedroom: Master Bathroom: Daughter's … [Read more...]

The final walk through of our Texas country home

As I mentioned yesterday, we moved a few days ago to Boulder, Colorado. I know, pinch me. I'm still trying to process this. Is this real life? Our cute little Austin, TX house in the county is now owned by a new family. Sniff. As I'm sure any long time reader remembers, this was supposed to be our forever home. We were NEVER moving. Never, ever, ever, ever getting back together moving. Like, ever. (Sorry 'bout that. I swear, Taylor just gets stuck in your head at the most inopportune times.) But you know what happens when you say you are NEVER doing something? The universe laughs at … [Read more...]

Huge News: We moved from Texas to Colorado. We are as shocked as you.

Oh man it’s been a long time since I updated here. We’ve had a very busy and eventful summer to say the least. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin so I’m just going to put it bluntly… we sold our home and moved to Colorado. Yup, we are now in Colorado. Mind. Blown. Trust me, we are just as shocked as you are. It's been a long and overwhelming summer to say the least. So, where do I even begin? Well, in about May Ben got a job transfer to the North West Denver area (and I'm not talking about Kanye and Kim's daughter here). We were surprised at this turn of events, but a … [Read more...]

Come hang out with me! Video walk-through house tour + meet our new pet Lily

Hey guys! My entire house is actually clean, so I made a video tour! Have you ever wanted to walk through my house with me? Well now is your big chance. :) It's kinda long (13 min) but not only will you see my whole house, you will be video bombed by my kids a few times (they are super adorbs so it's worth it) and will also meet our newest pet, little kitty Lily (also super adorbs). If you can't see the video, you can click here to watch it.) … [Read more...]

Kirkland’s Grand Opening recap + a $100 gift card giveaway!

When I talk about my blog in relation to my life, I always say something is in my "blog life" versus my "real life". I don't do this intentionally, it's just that it isn't very often that these two worlds cross paths. Last Saturday I had the rare opportunity to have these two worlds come together and it was weird. Fun, and awesome, and weird. As I mentioned Friday, I was asked (along with Beth from Free Stylin') to help celebrate the Grand Opening of the Kirkland's store in the Austin area. It was so fun to get to be a part of an event! They had a preview party the night before and several … [Read more...]
