Hello there! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. It makes me really happy that you want to learn more about myself and my blogging adventures. My name is Hilary, I'm a born and raised Texan and my family and I recently moved to Houston, TX.

I love all things crafty, and have the tendency to start a million projects all at once :) I love my family and you will hear tons about them. Jeff and I did not plan William but despite his bad timing, he is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. Being a young mom is tough, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Fun Facts about Myself and my Little Family:
  • We love to go to Disney World. 
  • I taught myself how to sew in 8th grade.
  • I love Mexican food and could eat it everyday. 
  • I have a double major from Texas A&M in English Literature & History. 
  • We are dog people :) 
  • William loves blankets and teddy bears :) 
  • My granny Smith inspired me to start quilting.
  • Jeff can fix anything electronic.
  • I love the smell of antique stores.


  1. Hello Hilary!
    I found your blog today and fell in love with it. When I read that you love the smell of antique stores I had to laugh out loud because I thought I was the only person who felt that way. It makes me really happy that i'm not the only one! Ha! Anyways, I just wanted to say keep up the awesome blogging.

    ~with much love, Rebekah

  2. Hi from your newest follower :)

    Your little boy is too cute! I stumbled upon your blog today and I love it! I blog over at http://a-long-distance-love.blogspot.com/ and I'd love it if you'd come say hi! :)

  3. Hi Hilary!
    I was looking up how to clean a washing machine since the one we have in our townhome smells like fabric softener combined with cigarettes from the previous tenants. Your blog is very nice and I think it is great you can sew! I have an Aunt who really enjoys knitting and quilting. Maybe I will try knitting or embroidery when time allows. I always love to see such pretty creations from talented women like yourself. Take care and best wishes to you and yours in 2014. :-)

  4. Hello Hilary, Your blog is great and very well done! Will be visiting often. Your quilting is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
