Farmstead

I am such a sucker for Fall. The hot apple cider, pumpkin flavored everything, sweaters, and crisp air- I love it all.  Last Fall, Chase and I were so busy with things, life in general, that we didn’t really get to experience the season or the festive activities it has to offer. So this year we are starting early! Yesterday the three of us made a little trip to The Farmstead, a corn maze and pumpkin patch, near our home.  They just opened last weekend and we have already got  ...

Spirit of Boise Balloon Festival

For the past four years, Chase and I have attempted to watch the hot air balloons during the Spirit of Boise festival. One way or another, every attempt was failed!  Either we would wake up to the alarm to go and hit snooze one too many times, or the balloons would weather cancel.  This year, I planned to meet my friend Megan and her little guy so I knew I wouldn’t have an excuse to just curl back up in bed and go back to sleep.  And the weather seemed decent, so I  ...

Western Idaho Fair

Fair time is always bittersweet to me.  It is such a classic summer time event, yet it also signifies the closing of my favorite season.  But it is always so fun to walk around and see the exhibits, animals, and do some good ole’ people watching!  This year, it was fun to walk around and introduce Lucy to the fair.  She mostly snoozed in her stroller but when she was awake she had this wide eyed look of bewilderment on her face!  And of course we had to get a little family photoshoot  ...

38 Weeks + Food Trucks

Today marks 39 weeks of pregnancy.  How has it gone so fast?   We are getting a little anxious around here, knowing that d-day could be tomorrow or it could be 3+ weeks from now.  I wish there was a set time when labor started for every mother- that would be so nice, right? Tonight we went to a Food Truck Rally at City Hall in Meridian.  I love how the Boise area is getting such a food truck scene!  It was a great time- I tried Mad Mac’s for some good old  ...

Weekly Review: 29 Weeks, early Valentine’s Day, and Shopping

this week I have enjoyed: + celebrating Valentine’s a week early with Chase at The Melting Pot.  Since we aren’t huge football fans, instead of watching the Super Bowl Sunday evening, we took advantage of the lack of people going to romantic restaurants!      + shopping around Boise at some local stores- the spots I went were Bun in the Oven and Second Chance, a recycled building supply store, since I wanted to see their knob selection for the dresser.    ...

A Morning in Nampa

 This morning we made a quick trip over to Nampa to… (drumroll please) pick up the dresser for the nursery!!  I found one on Craigslist that I loved but it needed to be refinished and who has time for that?  I brought it to Mustard Seed Home Decor and they did all the work for us.  And it only took them a few days- I was amazed!  I still have a few final touches to make before showing the final product (mainly the knobs) so stay tuned. Before picking up the  ...
