Weekly Favorites

Welcome to my new space!!

NO MORE WORDPRESS!!!  Parts of Wordpress were great.  I liked the SEO, stats and that I owned all my own content.  BUT it always needed to be updated, it didn't run smoothly a lot of times and it was just too fancy!  Plus, it wouldn't allow me to respond directly to your comments and I hated that.  I decided to do the opposite of what most people do and took on a Wordpress to Blogger conversion.  Luckily I hadn't been on the Wordpress platform for very long (6 months) and had been lacking in blogland due to all the planner work so I didn't have a ton to move over but it was still quite a bit of work.  Totally worth it though!

With all that said, Happy Friday!!  I'm so excited to see the weekend.  Jared worked almost an 80 something hour shift at the fire department last weekend and we spent about 3 hours together so I'm looking forward to actually having my husband home for a few days. We have a fun date night planned tonight, tomorrow we have some things to do and then a wedding to go celebrate and Sunday we have church and a sip and see to finally meet my cousin's sweet new baby!  I can't wait to hold her, snuggle her and finally meet her in person (they live in California).

Obviously my first favorite of the week is having this space complete.  Welcome!! Do you like the new look?  Check out all the new widgets!  I even added a shop my favorites scroll bar that I will keep updated with all my current favorites!

My grandmother & I went to see a local play last weekend and it was so good!  Our local theater company put on Arsenic & Old Lace.  We loved the movie, it's an old black & white Cary Grant one and the play did not disappoint. It was so funny!!

It's finally starting to feel somewhat like fall in Kentucky today & I love it!  It's definitely fall in our home.  You can see our fall home tour here!

If you haven't checked out our planners yet, be sure to do so!  We are currently running a Kickstarter where you can snag one for a great deal for yourself or stock up on a few for Christmas gifts!!  Check out our Kickstarter campaign here!

We currently have one unfinished room in our home and it has been driving me crazy!  I finally found a dose of inspiration last weekend and have started putting it together.  Here is a sneak peek into the space!  I can't wait to share a full reveal when it's finished.

I'm off to tackle a full day at work and counting down the hours until date night!  We're finally going to watch the premieres of some of our fall shows this weekend and I can't wait to watch those!  Designated Survivor and Chicago Fire are two I'm ready to watch because they ended on such cliffhangers!  Which shows are you loving this fall?


  1. I've felt the pressure that I should switch over to WordPress as well, but I wondered about the updates and upkeep, and wasn't sure that it was for me. This makes me think that I too would have regretted it. I think your site looks great! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I'm so glad I'm not alone in preferring blogger to wordpress! Also, I LOVE how you used a scarf as a decoration. It totally screams fall. Congrats on the planner launch!

  3. Cheers to having this space complete. :)

  4. Glad to know you prefer blogger over wordpress! I started to transfer over, but I think I am content. I love your space... still working on mine to make it what I want it to be! (Is anything ever really 'complete'? :))

    Also my husband works out of town a lot, so I totally feel you on that! Hope y'all have a great weekend together!

  5. I love your blog and glad you're back on blogger! I've been tempted in the past to change to wordpress, but I like the ease of blogger! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
