Baby Shower Decoration Ideas

As you can tell from the blog I love to entertain as often as I can. So when we first found out we were pregnant being involved with a baby shower was one of the things I was looking forward to. I know this is something you aren't supposed to be too involved with if you are the one pregnant, but I wanted to have at least one of my showers at our house with close loved ones to show off the nursery and really have any excuse to get people together to eat and pull out a lot of my decor and dining items (ha so I can justify to Amos why I need to have so much). 

I created a baby shower Pinterest board right away and I definitely wanted to stick with the bohemian/eclectic theme that I somewhat did for the nursery. Both of which haven't been too gender specific. Even though we know we are having a boy I didn't want to feel to tied down to your stereotypically boy colors or themes. If I have pinks at the baby shower and a softer feel, I think that is okay and if I didn't add a lot of blues to the nursery I felt that was okay as well. I want something honestly that represents our styles and can grow with us and our baby. 

So enough of this chit chat and here are some of the inspiration photos I absolutely love for a baby shower to be hosted at our house. Oh and if you missed the photos from the beautiful baby shower hosted by one of my friend's you can see them here

Our Honeymoon: Mediterranean Cruise - Days 13, 14, & 15 In Barcelona

Alright y'all here is the last post and stop of our honeymoon travels, which ended in our favorite city on the tour Barcelona, Spain. The hotel we stayed in was so posh and as soon as Amos and I checked in we were given champagne and I honestly felt like a celebrity...oh how the other half lives. I kept telling Amos we should move here, their attention to detail from the buildings and furniture all the way to the light fixtures blew me away. Every corner and turn had me literally gasping.

A Baby Shower Hosted By My Dear Friend Laney!

When one of my closest and dearest friends found out we were expecting she immediately expressed her overwhelming joy for us and said right away she wanted to throw Amos and I a baby shower. I of course was so touched that she wanted to do this and said yes right away. As the date got closer she has some stress and of course wanted everything to be perfect and she certainly did not disappoint the day of the shower. She stuck with the bohemian theme I am so in love with and even down to the smallest details everything was perfect. There were lot of laughs, games, and of course drinks (except for mommy-to-be). It will definitely go down in the books and I couldn't have asked for more. Just being surrounded by friends and all the outpour of love was so wonderful. So the biggest hugs and kisses go out to all the ladies from Amos, me, and baby Harrison. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for y'alls time and love during this special time for us.

Magnolia Store in Waco Texas

This past weekend was filled with a family baby shower for my cousin and a small trip my mother and I took up to Waco, Texas to see the Magnolia storefront that has become ever so popular from the the television show Fixer Upper

I started to follow Joanna Gaines blog before she had her amazing show and was sharing with her readers the process of her own fixer upper at Magnolia farms. Her attention to detail and lighter color schemes pretty much made me a fan of her style right away. So it was such an honor to finally get to see her store in person and all the amazing progress she has made the last few years. 

It is always extremely flattering when people compare my style with Joanna's and mention how similar they two are. When my mother and I entered her store it definitely did not disappointment and I was surprised how much of a likeness there were between the items she was selling and my very own house decor. I couldn't leave though without a few purchased items, I had my eye on this carved wooden pedestal from her online shop for a while now, so I left with one of those. I also got this vintage barn painting. If you can't make the trip all the way out to Waco to see her store in person I would recommend going to her online shop where you can purchase the majority of the items that she sells in her shop. 

Enjoy some of the pictures from our trip at Magnolia in Waco, Texas.

New Shop Tab!

Check out the new Shop Tab!

Welcome to my shop where I will be adding items regularly that I will be selling through Ebay and larger items locally through Craigslist. Majority of the items I plan to sell will be dining/entertaining or household decorations/furniture. As you can see from my home tours I have accrued a lot of stuff and now it is time to declutter and sale items that I just don't use or frankly have never used before. 

Any feedback would be appreciated and if you live locally in the Houston area and are interested in any of the items listed shipping is waived and you can contact me at ourhouseisyallshouse@gmail.com. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

XOXO,

Ashley

Our Honeymoon: Mediterranean Cruise - Day 12 In Toulon

Our second to last stop of our honeymoon was in a small quaint town off the coast of France in Toulon. It was a pretty and quiet day where we strolled the city and ate and drank. I decided to give my DSLR camera a break and just took pictures with my phone so the pictures are not as sharp and clear as the previous locations, but regardless there was still beautiful scenes to be captured. In all it was a nice and relaxing day that was much needed after the last few jammed packed days.

House Life Lately...

Well with Halloween out of the way we are gearing up for the remaining holidays over here while trying to plan for additional events coming up like, baby showers, dinner parties, etc. 
Our next few months are rather busy so I am going to have to remind myself to take it easy and enjoy these last few months of pregnancy. 

Speaking of baby showers I plan to share some inspiration ideas in a post later on the blog of one of my shower's that will be hosted at our house in December. In the mean time I will be spending time enjoying the house as it is before all the holiday decor starts to go up, which will probably be later than earlier as I don't want to mix decor with the upcoming baby shower.  Here are little moments of our house life lately...
