Disclosure: This post is in partnership with True Value.  On August 25 my grandparents will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. Yes, you read that right.

Summer Drink Recipes in DIY Glasses


Disclosure: this post is in partnership with Sandra Lee Cocktail Time.  Is anyone else experiencing a heat wave where they live? This has to be the hottest spring/summer on record in the Seattle area. Yesterday was 95 degrees and all I can think about is how thankful I am that we put AC in this […]

DDD Turns 4!


It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since I officially launched this little ole blog, Design, Dining and Diapers! I had no idea what I was really getting into.

DIY Rustic Curtain Rods

A few weeks ago I revealed some big updates I made to our master bedroom! I love seeing it all come together and take shape. I still have a ways to go, but the few changes I made in the last few months have really softened the space and made it feel more like ‘home’. […]

Modern rustic console display

It’s hard to believe this year is almost half way over! Where did 2015 go? While it seems to be going by faster than ever and has been full of fun, my to-do list doesn’t seem to be getting checked off quickly enough. Last year, I did a check in at the 6 month mark and […]

DDD The Shop!

Looking down on Bridge_WATERMARK

Hey all! I mentioned yesterday I’ve been working on a special project which has taken up most my time this week and I’m so glad it is finally done! During the last four years of blogging, I’ve gotten pretty close with my DSLR and I’ve loved learning more about photography (and I still have a lot […]
