baby a : nursery reveal

this is a way overdue post!
AUSTIN’S NURSERY REVEAL!

i wanted to stay neutral with a’s nursery just in case our next babe is a girl. i also stayed away from the typical “boy” theme that has cars, dinosaurs. trucks, etc. i really hate those things, ESPECIALLY on baby clothes!

so here you go! the sweetest nursery for the sweetest baby boy!

{ all items will be linked at the bottom of the post! }

 


we realized after putting everything up that we were going to need much longer shelves. eek!

i have heard so much about micellar water from some of my favorite beauty bloggers, so i thought i’d jump on the bandwagon and give it a go! have y’all tried this stuff yet? what did you think?

IMG_1628
after running a lot of errands during the day, jaz and i watched this sweet girl for a little while. i forgot how hilarious toddlers are…”yep…i go poopies everywhere all the time”
so fun! jaz just loved having little miss eleanor over, she is going to be such a great big sister! {not pregnant, lol}

sunday

seahawks vs. panthers
because kickoff was at 10am again we decided to have a pancake party and had our friends, britt & ludwig, over.

IMG_1641
UGHHHHHH!
this was my heartbeat during that game! what the hell was that first half???? grrrr…such a tough loss.
we’ll be back next year!

IMG_1632
after the game we went over to cale’s brother to see his relatives from out of town and jaz loves when she can see her cousins! it’s always a good time.

monday

IMG_1636
jaz and i got to stay home from work and school so you know what that means…cleaning!!
you guys should have seen this bathroom {jaz’s} it was disgusting. chunks of toothpaste everywhere…like on the toilet! don’t ask because i have no idea how she does it. so my greatest feat of my day off was cleaning this. let’s just see how long it takes her to destroy it again. ew.

IMG_1634
have y’all seen these adorable snapchat filters?
love this one!
follow me!! // {@jaevas}

IMG_1643
i have been shopping, for what seems like forever, for something to go under our new shelf and i finally found some that i love! thanks target!

it was a great 3-day weekend for us and we got so much done!
did you do anything fun or exciting this weekend?

always,
jess♥ 

welcome to our home. pt. 2

welcome to the second part of our home!
the majority of the upstairs.

you can find part 1 of “welcome to our home” {here}

master bedroom continued…

i forgot to share our dresser when i shared our master bedroom, so here it is.

homegoods, y’all. i’m telling ya!

jazmyne’s princess room.

IMG_4990
i’m obsessed with this canvas. hobby lobby is the winner here.

IMG_4994IMG_5003 IMG_5004
i know that these letter’s don’t really go with her color scheme but they were a gift that neither one of us can part with. jaz loves them!

IMG_4998
what’s a princess room without a chandelier??

IMG_5006
now this is the most special thing in jaz’s bedroom. cale’s granny gave jaz this adorable rocking chair. it was actually cale’s & his siblings when they were younger, so it means a great deal to him.
and sitting on that adorable rocking chair is mr. monk {aka monkey}. jaz has had this stuffed animal since the day she was born. he’s quite tattered now as he took a little tumble in a burning candle, it’s okay we performed emergency surgery and got him a cast.
IMG_5008
and there you have it! a very…very, pink princess room.

the infamous man cave

now remember, this is the gathering room of all things that were hung up or “around” the house when i first moved in…

IMG_5036

the epitome of a man cave, right? i wasn’t allowed to touch this room…at all. i gave some placement pointers but he wanted every piece up on the wall. what’s he going to do if we have a baby before we move?

well folks, there’s our little home!
if we do any renovations or any type of home diys i will, of course, update y’all.
have you done a home tour before? if so comment with a ping back and i will be sure to check it out! i love seeing other blogger’s homes!

welcome to our home. pt. 1

**i’ve been getting a lot of questions about where my comment button is and it’s ↑↑ actually on top of my posts in the right hand corner. it looks like a little thought bubble. super confusing, i know but i can’t change it. meh.**

happy sunday!
i know most of america is undergoing a horrible cold weather freakout, BUT seattle is stepping up it’s game and giving us so much sun! it hit 60° yesterday! it was awesome! sooo sorry for those of you that are neck deep in snow. yikes!

on to the post!
i know i promised this a lonnnng time ago and i honestly thought i would get to it sooner but we’ve been crazy busy y’all! i also didn’t know how i wanted to do it. either one huge post or maybe 2 or 3 little posts. i decided to do 2 parts.

here’s a little back story on our casa. technically, it belongs to cale & cale only. he had already had his house for 3 years before jaz and i moved up here. his own little bachelor pad! and that’s exactly what it was! cale is completely modern where as i am more traditional and like to make my house pretty with lots of decor. needless to say things changed when i moved in {sorry honey} i mean seriously y’all, he had his nintendo games framed and that’s what was on the walls in the living room. haha BACHELOR PAD!

the only thing we bought that he didn’t have {or that i didn’t like haha} was a living room set {coffee table, end tables and a buffet} we aren’t going to buy all new furniture until we move into a new house that we will be buying a couple years after the wedding. i can’t wait! it’ll be a clean slate for me to have fun with!

alright friends, welcome to our humble abode!

where all the magic happens… the kitchen. 

1524591_10202260625988498_126818102_nthis is the before. do you see what i mean about modern stuff? yep, that’s a knife man, a buddha butter thing, gnome salt & pepper shakers and a rock statue pepper grinder. the wine glass holder wasn’t there when i moved in either but that was one of the first projects we did.

IMG_3054

and after.

 IMG_3049

i got everything {minus the wine glasses & wine} pictured here from homegoods. that place is my jam! 

IMG_4151

we usually don’t have that many flowers up there but it was valentine’s day when i snapped these. there is however, always a fresh bouquet up there.

IMG_4157

we don’t have a dining room, we have a very small house. but we do have an extended bar that we put three stools under and that serves as our dining room.
i am not an open floor plan kind of girl. and this is an open floor plan house. so i had to separate the kitchen and the living room somehow and these were the perfect way to do that! before, we just hand some simple pendants that were very small.

where i spend my sundays… the laundry room.

sorry for the awful grainy picture, this is a cropped pic-stitch of an instagram picture. eep! so bare right? also, who the hell puts up those top shelves? unless you’re an amazon woman there is no way any woman is reaching up there. i once put my foot through the hood of the kitty’s littler box because i was climbing on top of the washer & dryer to reach my detergent. not cool.

thanks to good ol pinterest, i came up with this! my man is such a handy man and i love it!

on to the master

IMG_3055 IMG_3057

nothing special but it’s ridiculously comfy. going to sleep is by far my favorite thing to do.

in part 2 i’ll share the living room, jazmyne’s room, and cale’s man-cave.
hope y’all enjoyed a little look into our seattle suburb home.
i love house tours so let me know if you’ve posted home tours before! i would love to hop on over to your blog and check them out!
