Nashville, Atlanta + Charleston

Oh my!

The bird and I are taking a road trip next week. I am dying for all of your recommendations! What are your favorite restaurants, must-sees and local activities?

I know some of you are in the area too and would even love a meet up for coffee or drinks if you're interested!

Can't wait for all your tips. Thanks in advance! Xo

I miss this fabulous place

I have missed you. This blog. My followers. And blogger friends. It's been wayyy too long!

Getting back into the swing of things after moving back from Dublin, Ireland has been a serious transition. Moving back into our home, finding a job or two and getting back into a schedule and everyday routine. But it is all starting to fall into place.
I hate that I have neglected this fabulous space I love so much. I miss creating posts and reading yours.

And today is my blog anniversary of 4 years and I couldn't not touch base. It's also officially spring and my birthday month!
So, cheers!

I don't know where this little blog will go, but I'm not ready to call it quits. I love it too much.

Until I get it all figured out, I am currently a stylist at Stitch Fix. If you are a client, I would love to be your stylist if you want to request me (Jessica Pigeon)! :)

Fun filled weekend

It was such a fabulous weekend over here. Every bit of it.

It started with an early Friday... which always kicks off the weekend right. We had fun dressing up and greeting all the trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood.
"Cat Burglar"
We also made our own treats: homemade nachos and margaritas. Recipes to come soon!
On Saturday, we went on a long bike ride through town.

It was such a beautiful day and 15 miles later (!!!) we returned from an amazing ride, a picnic lunch and some champagne tasting.
On Sunday, we went to a huge antique faire. If you ever happen to be up here on the first Sunday of the month or are a local... this is not to be missed. They have so much good stuff, old and refurbished. We ended up purchasing our dining room table (custom made!). So exciting getting our house in order, slowly but surely.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!

Happy Halloween!

I did my best to add a little decor to our home for Halloween. I have to admit, I had a good time sprucing up our entryway.
Plus, I can keep our minimal decor up for the fall (at least until Thanksgiving).
Our front porch is pretty bare... but we did get into some pumpkin carving last night. Here's an action shot of the bird and my brother:
Hope you have a fun- and candy-filled Halloween! I put off buying candy until today because I know my will power is not strong enough against my sweet tooth. But calories don't count on Halloween, right?

Gold mini pumpkins diy

I purchased a few mini pumpkins in orange and white to decorate with. I opted to turn the orange ones gold. I think it was a perfect excuse to get a little crafting done!
Sometimes a diy project is the perfect therapy. :)
What you need:
- Pumpkins
- Spray paint (I used)
- Tape (if you want to keep the stems natural)
- Gloves

And here is sneak peek of our Halloween decor:
Full post to come on Friday.

Here is a fun post for more ways to decorate your pumpkins. Love the ombre pink ones!

Hope you're having a great week!

Weekend recap at the Pumpkin Patch

We finally got into the Halloween spirit and went to the pumpkin patch this weekend.

I have to say, I was smitten by the assortment of pumpkins and gourds this year.
We ended up picking up a couple small ones and a 'his + hers:'
Big orange one with a stem for the bird and pink for me.

I also picked up a couple minis in white and orange that I was hoping to spray paint gold. Hopefully I'll get to this diy before Friday!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Festive links for Friday

Happy Friday!

Halloween is right around the corner... and I haven't planned a thing. We don't have costumes, pumpkins or plans. That's what this weekend is for, right?

Here are 5 festive links to get into Halloween mode:
Doughnut pumpkins // Pumpkin pull apart bread // Caramel apple bar // Tablescape + garland diy // Halloween candy bark

I love the idea of leftover halloween candy bark. Such an easy recipe and a crowd pleaser the next week in the office! Here's a past recipe and guide for peppermint bark. So good. So easy.

To be honest, it isn't my favorite holiday. But I am looking forward to staying in with the bird and handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. I always love seeing the fun costumes.
