WHW: Ladies Gifts

Hey y'all! Welcome to another What's Hap-'Pinning' Wednesday - I'm going to also collaborate with the three fabulous ladies I joined last week for another gift guide. Tis' the season! Today is all about the ladies and of course I'm going to be channeling some of the items on my very own wishlist but also great ideas for any woman in your life!

I keep seeing everyone post their holiday decorated home pictures and I am LITERALLY scratching like an addict to join in on that fun....however, our sectional still hasn't arrived and for some reason I cannot put up our tree up until the living room is complete. I did get an updated shipping notification though - on or before the 17th! Hopefully my new pillows will be here shortly after and then - THE TREE! I'm just doing one tree this year, maybe two (but definitely not 5..womp womp)

We ordered a different color for the sectional (Hilo Flax) The white/cream is great but I love wine and have a toddler! I also added a green monogram to the blue leopard pillows to match the green ikat ones! Check out Wheaton Whaley Designs on Etsy if you're in the market for new pillows or super cute home decor! Y'all, here stuff is too dang cute! 

Ok so shifting gears to what we're really here - this week's gift guide! Here are some of the things I've been swooning over lately and also some other good finds for any leading lady in your life! Link up with us as I link up with them! Happy Wednesday y'all!

Gift Guide for Kiddos

eeeek! Its officially the holiday season - yea I know, I'm TOTALLY shocked its here too! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't OVERLY excited though. The week before Thanksgiving is fair game for my decorating to begin and being in a new house makes it kind of exciting to figure out where everything is going to go from the tree to the tinsel. However, one thing I am not excited about is shopping (only because I haven't started whatsoever and I feel a tad overwhelmed) cue - researching gift guides from the best people in the biz - the blogging community! I'm so thrilled that these 3 fabulous ladies are hosting the ultimate gift guides each week from now through the beginning of December and today its all about the kiddos. So, without further ado, here is what I think is on Miss A's radar this year. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else lists!

WHW: Lately in Pics

Hey y'all and welcome to another What's Hap-'Pinning' Wednesday link up! Link up with us below to share what's going on with you! Today I'm recapping some fun stuff that has been going on lately via a picture dump. We've had friends in town including my niece for the weekend (unpacking) 25th anniversary homecoming at my high school (more unpacking) birthday parties (still unpacking) and just overall trying to get settled! Yesterday my office shut down early because the town closes off main street here for the littles on Halloween afternoon to go trick-or-treating. Miss A sported her absolutely precious (and hysterical) pineapple costume. I mean, totally fitting huh? Anyway have I mentioned how exhausting moving is? I think I need more wine! With that said, happy Wednesday y'all and oh my goodness happy November!

New Home Tour 'Before'

Hey y'all and happy Reno Update Monday! We had a big weekend since it was homecoming and I'm going to switch things up and recap that on Wednesday. So now we've almost been in the home for a week (not that long saying overnight but in it nonetheless) and I want to go ahead and give a complete home tour with how it looked when we bought it (because of course we're knee-deep in putting on mark on this place) We've finished all the painting - go Hubs and Father-in-law - and now we're going to dive into the kitchen. Definitely pay attention to the kitchen because that room will be totally different. We're going to be painting the cabinets white, putting in all new lighter Quartz countertops, laying down new light gray tile and installing new stainless appliances. The walls will be a pale gray so goodbye to the yellow it is currently. But anyway, here is the complete before tour:
