Blogging can be an isolated business. Michelle, Robin, and I are lucky to have each other to work with, but many other sites are one-woman operations. One of the strongest tools a blogger can have in her arsenal is a strong community to work with. This weekend, I got to tap into that community at a Cleveland blogger meetup.Keep Reading
Turns out all of us had a very murder-y week. Read on to find out what we’re talking about and the rest of this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.
I just got back from a week in Belgium and Amsterdam and as per usual, I overpacked. It was pretty warm in Cleveland when I left so I completely forgot how to dress for the fall weather, let alone rainy fall weather. Keep Reading
Movies have a way of setting the tone and I always like to kick off the fall season with movies that get me ready for chilly mornings, changing leaves, and sweaters. Over the years I’ve compiled quite the list of movies that feel particularly like fall. Here’s what’s on my fall movie list.Keep Reading
Michelle is bopping around Belgium this week, Hannah is hooked on a new show, and Robin can’t get enough color. This is this week’s edition of And Then We Tried Obsessions.
Disclaimer: Prior to this project I knew nothing about installing a vent hood. All of this was DIY and we were learning as we went, so if you aren’t comfortable making these kinds of decisions I would suggest hiring a professional.
A vent hood or exhaust fan is one of those things that you don’t really notice until you don’t have one. I never thought about it being a crucial part of a kitchen until Zac was making bacon one day and the entire first floor of our house was filled with smoke and the smell of bacon. Now, I was fine with the house smelling like bacon when we were about to eat some, but when the smell was still lingering three days later I was officially over it. Much to Zac’s delight, I decided that we had lived without a kitchen exhaust long enough and it was time to start installing a vent hood.Keep Reading
Even though it may not be pumpkin-everything quite yet, we’re already starting our lists and thinking of cool, crisp days. Here’s our Fall Fashion Wishlist and what we’re daydreaming of wearing once the temperatures start dropping.
Before we dive into this week’s obsessions, we want to take a minute to address the devastation that has hit Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. While there are plenty of ways to help, we suggest donating to make sure that the displaced pets in the Houston area are taken care of. If you can, please consider donating to the SPCA of Texas, who is working to provide disaster relief to affected pets. Even better? Donate through Momma’s Gone City, who is matching all donations to the SPCA of Texas made through her Facebook page. She also has a great list of other places to donate.
And now onto our regularly scheduled And Then We Tried obsessions.
What a tongue twister of a title, right? While I was snapping pics of those amazing Piece by Paz candles last week, I decided that I hate my current end table lamp so now I’m on the hunt for a replacement! It needs to be pretty tall to fit proportionately with the ceiling height, so here are my favorite tall table lamps that are in the running for my living room.Keep Reading
If you’ve been following us on Instagram, then you know that I got engaged recently! Even though I thought I would know it was coming, I was totally surprised and kind of in shock after it happened. So, if sappy stuff isn’t for you then keep scrolling because this is the story of our Torch Lake engagement:Keep Reading
