As you know, I’m doing the Fall in Love challenge with some besties which means that my daughter will finally have a big girl room. Ramona is a nearly 5 year old girl in 2014, so obviously her room is going to decorated with woven textures, gold, wicker, neon…the usual. Right now we are thinking that we will leave the walls white and decorate around that before we commit to any painting.
You should know Nick and I are the worst procrastinators ever. Any time there’s the threat of public humiliation in the form of a deadline, things magically get done. Cassie, being the dreamer she is, wanted to pull off a giant fall series where a ton of really awesome blogger (I mean just look at that list up there) complete an entire room makeover in 6 weeks. She asked. I accepted, so now it’s time to fall in love with…
Our 9th anniversary brought these guys into our lives – Mr. & Mrs. Ceramic Head Vase. They arrived in the middle of the build, so straight to storage they went awaiting some greenery approximately 10 months later. As much as I love the idea of having fresh flowers in these guys all the days, I know it will never happen. I decided to plant something in them instead.
It’s the post you’ve all been waiting for – the big reveal of our wallpaper. We gave you some sneak peeks over a month ago on instagram, but today you get to see it in its finished glory and
hear read all about how to install wallpaper using paste.
Sometimes I just want to share things. Things that I obsess about/have/want/need/etc. Enter this post aptly named Weekend Wants. Not that this is a thing around here, but it’s today because these were on my mind last night. I think they need to be on your mind too. (No one is paying me to brainwash you today. I just felt like it.)
Creepy oil paintings of random people are a thing y’all. We have an Indian man (or Pilgrim? I can’t decide. Also how does one tell?), but we hit the mother load of creepy art a few months back.
Nick was day tripping in Austin. I was scouring craigslist down there for a night stand for the nursery. I had these day dreams that I’d find the perfect Ron Swanson-esque piece for insanely cheap. Then Nick would swoop in and bring that baby back to complete the room.
I casually mentioned this idea to Nick. Then he sent me a listing for these guys…

Guess what you guys? I am officially a Realtor in North Texas! I worked my butt off this summer between all the traveling and got my license! Now all of you need to buy/sell a home via me. Yes, I am talking to you.
If you’re looking for a real estate agent in DFW, I’m your girl. What’s in it for you? (Besides the obvious fun we will have skipping from house to house.)
So, as you probably have figured out by now, we are obsessed with Nashville Hot Chicken around here.
This summer during our 3 trips to Nashville, I was determined to eat as much of it as possible and come home and subsequently be able to recreate it.
Nashville has always held a special place in our hearts. My family has an annual BBQ (58 years strong) there, so Nick and I have gone basically every year since we’ve been together which is *gulp* 13 years. This summer was blessed with not 1, not 2, but 3 trips to Nashville. Definitely calls for an official Wills Casa Guide to Music City.
Just FYI this is Ramona and Beckett in front of the house their great-great grandfather built where their great-grandma grew up.
