Progress and Our Weekend

Lots of progress has been happening over here at the Zottola Zoo. First of all, Sadie has been doing well with eating different foods. I saw corn on the cob at the grocery store for the first time since last summer, so we made some together!

This picture reminded me of when she was seven months old and was super interested in corn on the cob. A girl after my corn-loving heart!

Also, she ate turkey last night. For a child who is basically a vegetarian, that was huge progress!! She has her follow-up appointment with the gastroenterologist today 🙏 (more…)

Living Room Refresh Inspiration

It’s currently Friday evening as I type up this post and I’m so excited for tomorrow. My mom, Hannah’s sister-in-law, and I planned a little baby shower for my sister and I can’t wait! I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures and maybe even squeeze in a vlog to remember the day! 

Okay, onto the topic of this post. Jimmy has been diligently working on a new fireplace and mantle for our living room (it was our Christmas gift to each other!) in his free time and I’ve been dreaming of sitting by the fire with my little family 😊 

Since we’re doing a little makeover of the fireplace, I think it’s the perfect opportunity to do a little refresh throughout the whole living room. I made a little inspiration graphic below of some of the ideas I have in mind. 

Navy blue and coral living room decor

Basically, I’m really liking navy blue and coral together. Our walls and couches are gray, which I think is a nice neutral background for coral and navy. I’m thinking lots of texture and pops of color. I haven’t told Jimmy my ideas yet, so I’ll see what he thinks 😉  

I definitely don’t want to go crazy with this little project because I’m sure new curtains/pillows/decor will be ruined well-used within a few years (living the toddler + dog + cat with claws life over here) so I’m wondering if you have any budget-friendly decor stores you recommend?! 

Do you have any favorite color combinations?

Are you working on any home projects at the moment?
