5 Months, 20 Weeks, 150 Days

No matter how you count it down, the result is the same: it's our 5th Monthiversary! It's also Halloween (Happy Halloween!) AND my boyfriend's birthday (Happy Birthday Love!) so there's lots to celebrate today!

First things first, what did you dress up as for Halloween? Planning on handing any candy out tonight? We didn't dress up this year and since our new neighborhood is still being built, I don't know if we'll be getting any Trick-Or-Treaters so I need to live vicariously through you haha

Anyway, back to our monthiversary! In the past 30 days, I've done the following:

• Told you where I got all of the items on my DIY $15 chunky floating shelves

Painted our powder room

• Thought about upgrading our powder room's pedestal sink to a vanity sink

DIY'd a faux pumpkin topiary

• Added some Halloween flair to our gate

• Added even more Halloween flair to our front porch

• Stumbled upon another look for less find

Styled our staircase landing

DIY'd an $18 console table for said staircase landing

Met one of my idols, visited some animals, and took a trip to IKEA

• Finally got a dining room table

Scored at Saver's

• Made an unexpected dresser purchase

Told you the sad/hilarious story of how one of our DIY string globe pendants bit the big one :(

Whew! I just got tired haha I'm not very good at sticking to the lists I plan out in advance for future monthiversaries so this time around, I think I'm just going to play things by ear and see what happens.

What was your favorite fifth monthiversary project? Any suggestions on what I should do in the next 30 days?

Looking for past Monthiversaries?

  1. So much to celebrate! Happy all of the above!

    I dig your house. I want to come sit in it some time.

  2. Thanks Amy! If you're ever in my neck of the woods, feel free to swing by! :)

  3. Happy Halloween and Birthday! Is it really that time again! I seriously hadn't realized it was month end until I read that it was your monthiversary post! We aren't dressing up but Archer's going to be a penguin and Ruby was suppose to be an Elizabethean queen but she likes her purple princessy dress more so she's wearing that. We'll be trick or treating next week (postponed because of Hurricane) and going to a friend's house afterwards no candy dispensing for us!

  4. Thanks! I didn't realize it was so close to the end of the year until Christmas stuff started popping up all over the stores haha

    Archer and Ruby's costumes sound adorable! Hope you guys are staying safe and as dry as possible! :)

  5. I forgot to check and tell you that my aries horn thing does kind of lean to the left a bit (if you're looking at the front of it). It definitely isn't a perfect lean/shape but maybe it is suppose to be like that??

  6. Good stuff :) My favorite is without a doubt your DIY console table! And you forgot to mention that centsational girl pinned the table ;)

  7. Crystal - Oh good! Glad to know mine isn't the only one that leans!

    Julia - I know! I'm still pinching myself haha
