These houseplants will help you be more healthy.

So I have this thing with houseplants. When I go to Home Depot or local nurseries and load up a cart full of plants, I am sure things are getting a little out of hand, partially because I see no one else with near as many plants in their cart and partially because when I…

How to organize your pantry to eat better.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever set a goal to eat better. 🙋‍♀️  Raise your hand if after 3 days of making this goal you slammed what was left of the girl scout cookies sitting in your pantry. 🙋‍♀️ (#thosecarameldelitestho) Ah yes — a personal favorite of mine: the aspirational “I probably won’t meet this, but…

Conquering the Dinner Party

I’ve learned that I very much view “hosting” as a skill. I was definitely not born knowing how to throw a killer dinner party, and I’m sure there’s a ton I could improve on, but let me tell you what — I freakin’ love it. I was talking to my friend Emily about it one…

Faster than Fast Food (seriously): Baked Salmon

So let’s talk about dinner. When you’re working 8-5 and sometimes longer than you’d like to admit, the worst thing in the world seems like cooking. Cooking for parties, sure. Cooking for a date, great. But cooking for yourself can be a major bummer, mostly because you’re tired AF and when it comes to prioritizing…

Before & After: Kitchen Renovation

Our home renovation has come a long way. I don’t think I’ll ever feel as though it’s finished because of what I like to call “Golden Platter Syndrome” AKA the fear of serving something up on anything less than a golden platter (also known by its street name “Perfectionism“). In my own mind and for my…

The unicorn of wood floors.

I know I have given plenty of illustrations of how renovating a house feels, and I’m sure some of them are so great you probably feel like you’re right there with us. Unless you are Zach’s parents reading this (pic below — aren’t they so cute), then I’m happy that this isn’t your reality because it has…

More work, less house.

**This post was drafted April 28th, so I’m just posting it now. I’ll post an additional update of what’s happened between now and then. (: It has been a hot minute since we last posted. Mostly because we decided to go to Big Bend State Park. And then Zach went fishing. And then I ran around like a chicken…

All the feels (and all the smells).

Happy #TBT! (We don’t post baby pics here though, even if Zach and I were both pretty dang cute). Instead, I’m going to remind everyone of those amazing SkyDancer toys that every little girl wanted in the 90s even though their wings doubled as blades and you would have to explain to the school nurse that…

BATHROOM RENOVATION DECISIONS. 150 150 Indoorsy // @fortheindoorsy


If you know me, you know I like to understand all of my options before making a decision. It’s actually pretty unhealthy. How many wedding dresses did I try on? Probably around 20 (but at least I was efficient at it). I am full of ideas and am absolutely the worst at executing. So when…
