Costumes, Costumes, Costumes!

                         Happy Halloween 

Even though I'm a little bit of a debbie downer this Halloween and do not plan on dressing up, I thought I would share some cute and creative costumes with you to keep in line with the festivities! Maybe I'll steal (I mean... borrow) some of these ideas next Halloween!

The Reveal!

Welcome to the little picture tour of 'La Casa de la Pearson's'!!  I mostly am posting these so my parents can see what our new house looks like (since they're 500 miles away in DC), but I figured you all might enjoy a little tour as well!   So, welcome to our home!  (Keep in mind that these pictures are before we did any work on the house or moved any of our belongings in!  So, no, those lovely golden light fixtures will NOT be staying... sorry grandma.)

There you go!  We are totally in love with this house (it also helps that we got a pretty great deal on it too!).  We have a laundry list of things that we plan to do in the house so it's time to get down and dirty!  Bring on the long days of moving furniture, working on the flooring, changing light fixtures, fixing water leaks or plumbing issues etc.  We're ready.  We've been waiting for this day and we're ready to tackle these projects like a pair of 300 pound linebackers.  If you're in the area, feel free to join in on all of the wonderful festivities we have planned!

Bye for now,

Little Lovelies.

I've been really sticking with the whole holiday/fall theme when making onesies lately, so here's another one to add to the books.  I love the way this one turned out!  It's so festive and gets me pumped for some Thanksgiving action!


More designs coming soon!  Put your orders in for your cute little ones (or for cute little ones that you know) ASAP and I can try my best to get them to you before the holidays!  Custom orders also available! 

Happy Friday!!

Reading Nook Essentials

Let the countdown begin!

In t-minus 2 DAYS we should be receiving the keys to our NEW HOUSE! So excited for this process to finally come to an end and to finally get into our house to paint, possibly put in wood floors, and move all of our stuff in. It has been a long, drawn out process and we have been anticipating this day for about a month now! In the new place, as you walk into the front door, the living room is on your left and then there's this little room (that was previously used as a formal dining area, which we have no intention of using as so) to the right. I have decided that it would be nice to have a nice reading nook with a little extra seating for guest to hang out or for us to have a nice warm cup of coffee in the morning. Here's the plan (or something like it)...
Reading Nook Essentials

Obviously a trip to IKEA is a must. That is where I plan to pick up the bookcase, chair, and baskets to put in a few of the slots on the bookcase. Add a nice southwestern-style rug and a few cute accent pieces and you're set!

Stay tuned for more crafts and room designs (I'm sure a few more rooms will need planning out before we actually move everything into them)!

Much love,

Punkin' lovin'.

Seeing how Halloween is just around the corner, I figured I'd show off the cutest little pumpkin I think I've ever seen (I may be a little biased, but I'll leave the judging up to you all!).

{tell me your heart didn't just melt a little. : )}

Adorable.  Simply Adorable.

Happy Tuesday Friends!

Pinterest Picks.

Happy Friday!!

Adam and I have been given some promising news!  If all goes according to planned (which I'm slowly learning that nothing does when a foreclosed home is in the picture), we should be closing on our NEW HOUSE sometime next week!  Yea, that's right... NEXT WEEK!  (can you tell I'm excited?!?)

In light of our news, I've decided to leave you with a few projects that I plan on tackling for the new place.  Hopefully these ideas will inspire you to do something creative/crafty this weekend too.  (all of the links and tutorials to these projects can be found on my pinterest account HERE)

 {Chalkboards made from old trays, Lamp revamp}

 {DIY photo canvases, Hemp lamp shades}

 {House number wreath, Scrabble letter pillows}

Hopefully I'll be able to post pictures of the final projects once they are complete!  Have a great weekend!  (I plan on making my way to a few garage sales this weekend to find some goodies for our house... wish me luck!)

Much love,

Stephanie P.

Get the look.

Chevron fall. 

Chevron fall

I don't know about you, but I am falling in love with this shirt from Quicksilver more and more every time I see it!  I just love the mixture of earth-tone, fall colors... so me!  Pair it (or any other patterned shirt) with cute boots, a cardi, and a neutral scarf and you're good to go.  

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Much love,

Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps

{Crispy Southwestern Chicken Wraps}
My first attempt at a dinner inspired by Pinterest was a complete success! I got off work around 5:15 on Friday evening and realized I was going to have a very hungry husband coming home (in about an hour and a half).  So, I turned to pinterest.  I stumbled upon this recipe from mels kitchen cafe and had to try it because it sounded pretty simple, didn't use too many ingredients that I didn't already have, and I knew it could be made in a timely manor (3 pluses for any recipe!).  

I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone in a little bit of a time crunch or if you're simply looking for another recipe to add to your repertoire.  Head on over to mels kitchen cafe for the recipe for these delicious Crispy Southwestern Chicken Wraps (and many more delicious recipes that I might have to try soon).


Much love,

Holiday Additions

I'm so excited to show you all a preview of some seasonal onesies I've been working excited that I haven't even sewn them onto the onesies yet!  As always, these onesies can be ordered in any size and can also be made into a t-shirt for toddlers.  Hope you like them!

 {Pumpkin 1}

 {Pumpkin 2}


{Friendly Ghost}

 {Christmas Tree}


Please contact me via email at to inquire about purchasing a onesie!  (I am willing to work with you to customize any of these designs that you may be interested in... how cute would that pumpkin one be with a little initial in the middle?!?)

Stay tuned for some more seasonal/holiday ones (possibly a gingerbread man, reindeer, and snowflakes!!), that would also be great gifts for the special someones in your life.
Much love,

Stephanie P.
