room makeover!

December 11th, 2012 · 4 Comments

Every time that people come over to our house, I feel the need to explain that it’s a work in progress! We’ve been working on the downstairs almost since we moved in, but up until two weeks ago, the upstairs had this pretty, open landing at the top of our stairs… that was completely empty.

But I had a feeling that we could get a lot of use out of this space if it could just be cozy and comfortable! It’s basically a family room — centrally located in our house, and perfect for watching TV, lounging, or editing photos on my laptop!

So when I was picking furniture, comfort was key! I wanted a couch that would really fit our lifestyle over the next few years — comfortable, durable, and, of course, stylish! This La-Z-Boy sofa and ottoman were completely perfect — I fell in love the moment I saw them!

I broke up the caramel color of the couch with some turquoise and white accents — a little bit of color and texture make any room more fun! We’ve spent so much time in here since this room makeover — definitely 100% a success!

PS: Don’t worry — coco loves the couch too, she was just sleepy in my photo!

living sweetly (and a giveaway!)

So, this has to be one of the coolest packages I’ve ever received. 

A few weeks ago, I got an email from the lovely Jorie of WhoopTee, asking if I’d be interested in creating a Sugarlaws tee shirt!  Obviously, I was all, “that sounds like the best idea EVER, but you know what would make it even cooler?”

Doggie hoodies!

Seriously.  Way to up the ante, WhoopTee.  So Calvin and Coco got these awesome little outfits, and basically, the Sugarlaws family is nearly as well-branded as the Kardashians at this point.  Gotta have a goal, people.

And you guys can get into the action too!  WhoopTee has offered three Sugarlaws tank tops to my readers — so just leave a comment below to enter!  And then wear them everywhere, preferably in places that are as public as possible!  And send me pictures!  Hey, a girl can dream, right?!

On me: WhoopTee custom t-shirt (find them on Facebook and Twitter too!), Hudson jeans, Zara wedges.  On Calvin and Coco: WhoopTee dog hoodies.

This is our backyard!

First one we’ve ever had.  Calvin and Coco, being total city dogs, are sort of terrified of the grass. 

But from the moment we saw the house, all I could think about was stringing Christmas lights all along our backyard fence.  And thanks to some genius engineering from my father in law, it’s now a reality!  Just heavenly.
