Buying a home and expecting a baby have certainly changed things for Aaron and I. We’ve traded happy hours and evenings out with friends for home improvement projects and dinners at home. It may not be glamorous, but I don’t think I’ve ever been happier. We’ve really been enjoying the little things – like cooking out on our new grill and attempting some new recipes.
Over the weekend, we had a couple friends over for a low-key dinner at home. But of course, I couldn’t help but throw on a cute outfit and pull out all of my favorite home goods to make it feel a little more festive!
My favorite store, Marshalls, helped me make it extra special. With gourmet snacks, home decor, and the perfect outfit, I was set for our company!
I could not be more smitten with our new home goods and can’t wait for the next opportunity to entertain!
