February DIY Roundup

February has come and gone. And even though this month was short, there was enough time spent indoors that I was able to complete a few new DIY projects. Here’s a round up of some of them:

This month was a brutal one for me in more ways than one. Not only was this horribly cold weather less than desirable but with February came the realization that my due date had come and gone but without the baby that we lost last July.  And now, nine months later, still no baby. Like the fool that I am, I never deleted the due date from my google calendar after the miscarriage. So we knew it was coming up. I don’t think I’ll ever get the date February 15th out of my mind. It was our little glitter of hope. Even if it was only there for 9 weeks or so. But now its March and we can all forget about February for another 11 months. And as I am typing this sentence, I see that the bright sun is setting. So here’s to a brighter and more positive month ahead. And with that I’ll leave you with some pictures of the times this month that made me smile 🙂

I spent a week with some nasty flu like symptoms which provided me with a sick day to lounge in bed all day and this stylish blue accessory when I was at work.
One of the days I was feeling sick, Will hung up a new peg board for my sewing supplies. I love it!
Our baby pup Charlie Brown entered his first ever dock dogs competition…
… and jumped 13.4 feet on his second try!
Scarfs and hats were a must this month. And naturally we wore our matching Best Friends beanies from Rag and Bone as much as we could.
Oysters and sunsets with friends on Folly Beach are the best.
All dressed up for the 1st annual Hands to Hearts casino night where over $140,000 was raised for Children’s Congenital Heart disease. Pretty bad ass if you ask me.

  1. Adorable projects as always!

    I just wanted to say that I’m sorry for your loss. We had one too before having Gabe and what gave me the most closure was getting past my due date. Then I wasn’t thinking anymore about what I should look like or what I should be doing to prepare. That date passing was what it really took for me to move forward and I hope the same is true for you!


    1. thanks Kim! It was definitely one of those things that we were upset about but hopeful that since I got pregnant once it would happen again real soon but then the due date came and went I realized man its been awhile and still nothing. But we are staying positive and we will see what next month and then the next month brings.


  2. It was the same for us. I got pregnant the first time we tried, but it took much longer the second time. I think that even though you feel ok (physically) the body still needs time to heal after going through that. That was the most frustrating part for me, knowing I COULD get pregnant but I wasn’t. Fingers crossed and prayers lifted for you!
