The Studio Coffee Bar
(Featuring Mandy from Waiting On Martha!)
I’m so excited to have Mandy on the blog today because not only is she a really great friend of mine, but she is CRAZY STUPID TALENTED! Seriously. She blows Martha Stewart out of the water! Her styling skills are unlike anything you’ve ever seen and to top it off, she’s a wiz in the kitchen! I love this girl, and am thrilled to have her taking over ABD today! Click on over to read more…
The Rolling Coffee Party
(Featuring Courtney from Pizzazzerie!)
Friends, I am so excited to introduce you to our 3rd feature in our new series called “My ABD” today. We are going to be interviewing a few of our favorite gal pals to see how they are using their ABD! And today we have Courtney from Pizzazzerie!
Courtney is not only a good friend of mine, but she is INCREDIBLY talented! I’m going to be real with you, I think Pinterest was invented just so it could house Courtney’s work. Her food/party styling is just magical… and not to mention the tiny tea parties she throws for her little girl, Blakely!
Courtney is like Martha Stewart on crack and today, she’s taking over ABD! Read on, friends!
I’m super excited to share with you a little living room update! As you know, we are in the middle of a home make over project… we are working on pretty much every room (including the back yard!), but our main focus right now is the living room. Our first BIG piece came in about 2 weeks ago and I have been dying to show you. Back in December, Roxy, from Society Social, and I started dreaming up our living room and this DROP DEAD GORGEOUS velvet couch is what we landed on first. I’m going to be real with you, it is what our entire living room is based upon.
Roxy is amazing for so many reasons, but her design skills and expertise on this project have been SO helpful! Honestly, when it’s your own home, sometimes it seems a bit overwhelming to tackle a makeover like this, so having Roxy’s there has been invaluable! We have so many other pieces coming in and Ryan and I are working on hopefully what will be a DIY built in situation for the wall opposite of the couch…. but I’ll fill you all in when we get there, in the mean time, you should pray for us… DIY anything terrifies me.
Since this has and is a large project, we’ve been taking it really slow and finding pieces we actually love, and not just throwing things together fast because “I needed something to sit on” like I’ve done in the past. So our project for the next couple of weeks is pillows! Finding the perfect pillows that will pop in the room but also accent our new rug and furniture is intense! I haven’t landed on any yet, but below are a few options that I love. To honest with you the top two pillows are my FAVE.
What do you think? What kind of pillows do you have on your couch?! Spill it, I’m dying to know!

Let’s See If We Can Fancy it Up! A few months ago we started a bit of a Master Bedroom makeover of sorts. To be completely honest with you, we were kind of forced into it after…
