Rain, Ikea & Life...

We had our first rainy day here in Texas the other day.  It was almost unreal, even with a cold front!  We had to wear sweaters!!!  It was much needed.  Violet did not even want to come inside, she enjoyed it as well!

We went to Ikea with James parents to get a sewing table.  Gosh I could spend a fortune their if I could.  LOVE THAT PLACE!  His parents had never been and they loved it too!

James got up and put my new shelf/desk together for me the next morning.  He is such a good help!

I put some random stuff on it just for now... my sewing room still needs to be put together.  But this is going to be the biggest help ever!  A real sewing desk with storage!!!

Im currently working on new orders for Ruche, which is keeping me very busy behind the scenes.

And eating Nutella while I do so :)

Im super excited to have my family up to our house for the first time for mother's day this weekend.  Ive never ever had my family up for a holiday before where I live, it really makes me happy to be able to do so.  I only wish James parents didnt have to work so they could be here too.  But luckily, they have been a huge part of helping us, and come over often.

The next few days I will really be trying to get my house all together, so I may be able to do a home tour very soon!  We have been here just over two weeks, and it feels so much like home, like we have been here forever.



  1. I love your new sewing table! I am also an Ikea lover too!!!

    Have a great time next weekend with your family!

    After seeing you with a Nutella Jar now I have to go and get one! I love that stuff! Did you know that Nutella is originally from Italy? Ferrero invented it! I basically grew up with that chocolate! xox

  2. thank you so much! the first time i ate nutella was in france! i love that you can find it in most american grocery stores now! the best stuff ever! xoxo.

  3. Those shelves! *want, want*

    My eldest daughter discovered the deliciousness of Nutella recently; those jars don't stay full for long!

  10. Nice sewing table! I'm using a small desk and it is not nearly big enough. Lol.

  11. My sewing cabinet is big, bulky, and not very practical anymore. I LOVE IKEA too, and have had my eye on that exact desk-bookcase combo for a while. Maybe one day...
