Swooning


It's obvious browsing this blog I have a special place in my heart for the color mint. I've never been much of a pink girl but that's changed quite a bit lately but mint is still my number one color I'm dying over. It's smooth and gorgeous and so airy. Just the right cross of green and blue and that tones give such a variety. I could go on and on about this color but here are some things that make me gasp, in mint!

Gorgeous, right?!

My Pint Sized Love

This past weekend we had Drake and it was one we spent a little more time as a family with Andrew not working as much. It was nice having some normalcy where Andrew and I were co-parenting and enjoying Drake together. A lot of the time I'm the one who takes off Fridays to get Drake Thursday nights. It's him and I all day Friday and we're both excited for daddy to get home after his long day. Then again, Saturday we start our morning hiking with Grandpa Eric and run errands, clean the house, get some TV time in and wait for pops to come home. Sunday is when the three of us can sleep in and make breakfast together and enjoy a normal day at church and an afternoon relaxing.

It's something Drake and I are so used to and it's our little routine. Andrew was a little taken back seeing how we've made this normal and was a bit out of place figuring out his own role. Funny how that works. Me, being the stepmom and Drake bonding and building a life together. I think it surprised Andrew when I had to run out and Drake jumped on the opportunity to come with me. So we left the old daddy at home and had some more mommy//son time.

He's been more and more vocal saying he loves me and bringing to my attention how he feels. I dropped him with Grandma and Grandpa Friday for part of the day and he had a hard time with me leaving. Normally not one to give hugs and whine but he gave 3 hugs and kept coming to me saying "huggggy". I can't tell you what that does to my heart.

It's magic.

I realized marrying Andrew I'd be coming into a family and it was something I wanted to embrace. I was fully prepared to take on the role Drake needed for building our home together. In no way was I prepared for God to work so deep in my heart to love this boy with all my soul. In no way was I prepared to consider waiting expanding our family just to have more one and one time with my Little Man.

Drake is the world to me. He has helped me become a mom and he's worked his little soul into the middle of my heart. That boy, is the light of my life.

I can't thank God enough.
& Andrew of course, for blessing me with a son.

Workout Playlist: Sassy!

Hi friends!

A couple months ago I made a workout playlist for y'all here and it's funny now hearing those songs while working out because I always think I need to make a new one for you. So here it is! This one is a little sassy for ya and I have in my mind ones that are a little rock and one that's country. Hopefully, I'll get those mocked up and out for you in the near future too!

+warning: explicit language 


Have a happy workout!

DIY: Pallet Ottoman


You've seen Casa Kinch here and you may notice the coffee table we had there matches our end tables as it was full set along with the couches and area rug we got for our wedding. Well, Drake has made it a thing of the norm to sit on the coffee table while watching TV after millions of times Andrew and I saying no. The table has been on it's last leg lately, literally, wobbling like crazy and cracking if you even put a cup on it, so it was time to upcycle an old pallet I had lying around and make something that's a little more cushy and more child proof.

I figured getting something that's more of an ottoman feel, it would be child proof for later years when we expand out family and it would let us bring in another pop of the green we have throughout our main living space. I chose to paint the legs of the ottoman white because I've been bringing in small touches to lighten up the space so all in all, I'm loving the new statement piece taking over our living room.

T H I S   I S   W H A T   Y O U ' L L   N E E D :

pallet
+ mine measured 40" x 48" and we had this from buying our laminate flooring so it was free

poly foam
hobby lobby $34.99 with 40% off coupon at $22.90
michael's $19.99 with 40% off coupon at $13.13
+ i used two inch poly foam making sure it measured an additional 4 inches on each side so when it's wrapped, there's a padding there as well. i didn't have enough from the pack i got at hobby lobby so i purchased a second 1" pack from michael's i doubled to match the height of the 2" foam

fabric
joann's $5.99/yd at $13.07
+ i purchased 2 yards of fabric measuring 45" in width; i recommend having at least 50" in width unless you want a battle with the padding

wooden legs
home depot $3.78 at $16.56 for four
+ make sure to purchase the 9" size | see frustrations below with other sizing

staple gun
+ i don't have a staple gun so i used nails but it would be much easier doing a staple gun!

hardware
home depot $2.48 at $9.92 for four
+ these are a must to screw the wooden legs into for stability















Simple as that! Okay, not really. Full disclosure, this project turned into a nightmare mainly because I had in my mind, everything would go smoothly and perfect and then I didn't measure and ended up going to Home Depot 6 times in two hours. SIX TIMES. Good, grief. You think a girl would learn after the second trip to measure but nope, I was all about wasting time on my Saturday. 

The first set of legs I purchased were 14" legs thinking it would be a good height for a foot rest but lawwwwd, it was taller than the previous coffee table. I then went back and got a set of 3" ones and those were too short. Then 4" and again, too short. And 6", but nope. See my dilemma? Finally on trip number 6, we ended with 9" legs that were perfection. Take it from me, get the 9" ones right off the bat or you'll be a frustrated little lady wandering through Home Depot over and over.

Also, the fabric I chose was one that only measured 45" across but it was a steal at $5.99/yd so I was convinced I could make it work. Well, it proved to be a pain in my toosh. I ended up standing on the inside of the pallet to push to padding down enough to build a small lip of fabric to secure. So again, take it from me and make sure you have at least 50" in width to play with.

Otherwise, this is a simple tutorial and you've now been able to learn from my mistakes!
Enjoy your new addition to your living space!

Friday Freebie!

Happy Friday friends!
If you couldn't tell, I'm obsessing over gold and pink still. It's anywhere and everywhere I am right now and I'm totally fine with that. Why not embrace the girly side sometimes even if it's a little extreme, yes? 

Don't answer that, we might disagree.

But today, it's a pink and gold freebie again; get to rockin' your initial pretties!
