A Little House to Your Home Update

Hi everyone!!!  I hope you all are having an amazing summer and hopefully staying cool!  We’re having a great summer at the Jones’ household and are as busy as ever.  (Volleyball camps, cheerleading practice, trips to Lake Michigan and lots of home projects!)


(Hint:  We’re going old school and buying a Jenny Lind crib for Baby Bean)


I’m just about 6 months pregnant and it seems like the pregnancy is flying by.  I will admit the first 4 1/2 months were brutally rough.  Lots of morning sickness and literally no energy to even shower somedays, my bed was my best friend.  Being so sick was a bit overwhelming because I’m not one to sit around and luckily I rarely get sick so mentally it wasn’t good for me but I kept reminding myself that the more pregnancy symptoms I had the better the baby was doing!



(Working on my new (extremely small) office space, baby bean is taking my old one, so this photo from Made by Girl is in my inspiration file.)


I’m feeling alot more comfortable about this pregnancy too, we lost our girls Harper and Nora 2 years ago on July 30th when I was 22 weeks so to pass that 22 week point made me breath a little easier.  I also have lots of energy and feel amazing and am throughly enjoying that little baby kick (never stops!)!!


(I love this repurposed light sconce from Eddie Ross, it was originally brass and he dyed the shades with Rit and applied trim, he’s my hero!)

As far as my blog is going it’s still going to be a bit longer before my new site is up and running.  I had decided on a website developer awhile back but recently found someone local who I wanted to work with, so we’re working together now.  The site has a new logo and will have a new and fun look that I hope everyone likes.  I also have decided to expand a bit on the blog and talk about raising a 13 year old, raising a newborn and being a mother in her 40’s (yikes!), all while trying to balance this fairly new career and trying to keep life organized both family and home.  Design will still be the main focus of House to your Home.



(Sloan wants her bedroom tweaked and is loving the striped wall.)

Since the new site is not running yet I have decided to sporadically post from time to time just to keep you intrigued so I hope you’ll stop back!!  Enjoy your summer!!

    I LOVE the red desk! Makes me want a desk but no room for that and I didn’t use the desk I had so I clearly don’t deserve one.
    Believing for a healthy full-term pregnancy for your and Baby.

  2. Glad to hear you’re doing well! Look forward to your new blog and hearing about whatever life brings you!

    Is your baby a girl? Or do you know?

    • Thanks for the kind words!!! I’ll be posting a moldboard of the baby’s room soon and I’m sure that will answer your question!!!
