For those of you who caught my insta story last night, you might have noticed a family dance party 💃🏻💃🏻(nothing abnormal about that) but you also might have noticed some boxes 📦 📦😳😳 Yupp! We’re moving! I won’t get into too many details just yet, but the plan is to build a home out closer to our family. We look forward to weekly gatherings with the grandparents, sleepovers with the cousins and many more (much-needed) date nights for the two of us. 😘😘 This home has been SO good to us and we will miss it dearly. We poured our heart and soul into this renovation and we’re excited for the amazing family that will give it the same love that we did. Cheers to exciting changes and big moves! 🥂 photo cred: 📸 @reveriephotoco 📸
Confession: My living room DOES NOT look like this right now 😳 The last few days I’ve been prepping for a garage sale and getting organized. And as we all know, that can get messy! Yearning for my clean house right now — 😩 Maybe one day it will look like this again. Wait. Who am I kidding? I have two kids. My house is never this clean! 👉🏻Triple tap for sources👈🏻
So blessed! Today we celebrated Hudson and Harper’s 1st and 2nd birthday 🎉🎂 Our two rascals are the best thing that has ever happened to us and we are so thankful for their little hearts and minds. Parenthood is a daily challenge, but it’s worth every second. Especially when you get to share it with your one and only - @chadhorany 💙 #thankful #happybirthdaykiddos
My dearest Hudson - 2 years ago today you made me a mama 💙 I didn’t know what to expect when it came to motherhood, but when you came into this world, you wiped all of my fears away. Every time I look at you, I always say “Hudson - there’s no way mommy and daddy could have made you ANY more perfect than you already are!” I literally say that nearly every day 😊😊 I love you so much my sweet baby boy. How are you already TWO!?? 👶🏻👶🏻💙💙
You guys - why is it that I always forget to share photos of my kitchen? It’s one of my favorite rooms in our house and took the longest to renovate in our year-long renovation. It’s truly the “heart of the home” ☺️☺️ What’s your favorite thing about this space? Mine is the oversized island and quartzite countertop 😍😍
Happy first birthday to the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever laid eyes on! Harper Grace - you’re the best daughter and little sister that we ever could have asked for. Your smile is contagious and your big brown eyes get me every time. You have an appetite of a linebacker and the laugh of an angel. I love you baby girl. You are our beauty queen 👑💕👑💕 photo cred: @reveriephotoco
Today in Texas, the high is 105 degrees... WHAT?!? 😳😳😳 How is that even possible? Thankfully the evenings have been pretty manageable and we’ve still been able to enjoy our back patio, which will probably be our plan for tonight. Anyone else already planning for the weekend on this Friday morning? #friyay #texas #summer
This little guy isn’t even 2 years old yet, and he’s already showing an interest in potty training! So - naturally I decided it would be a good idea to go to @target to get his first “big boy” potty, but instead bought the entire store... 😳 Let’s be honest, I just really wanted to go to Target. Who else is with me? #addictedtotarget #itsaproblem #sorrynotsorry 👉🏻Triple tap for sources 👈🏻
Despite the #Texas heat (and a few pesky mosquitoes) we’ve still managed to enjoy our front porch this week. With both kiddos now walking, they so badly want to roam outside, and this has been a perfect hang out for us. Thank you @fouroakbedswings for giving us so many beautiful memories!
Out exploring some exciting opportunities on this beautiful Friday night for our family's future 🌻🌻🌻Stumbled upon this adorable coffee shop (@farmhousecoffeetx) at @harvesttexas and I'm officially obsessed 😍😍 Anyone else having an exploratory weekend? #friyay #oldhouselove #harvestbettertogether
Happy 4th of July! Blessed with a day full of friends, family, food and sunshine ☀️☀️ - couldn't ask for more! Hope you guys are having a beautiful Independence Day 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #4thofjuly #independanceday #summertime
To say it's been a long month is an understatement. Hudson had 2 weeks worth of a tummy bug and so did Harper. Our daycare has shut down for 2 weeks (due to them moving to an awesome new location - yay!), but of course it's right in the middle of Chad and I launching multiple client websites. And to top it off, this week we found out Hudson has pneumonia in one of his lungs 😪😪 The good news is, sweet Hudson got a shot yesterday and is now on medicine, so we hope for a quick recovery! We also got to spend a fun week with the cousins and grandparents, so I think that's a win 👌🏻👌🏻 Needless to say though, I'm on minimal sleep, there's not enough coffee in the world to wake me up, and I somehow I just injured myself with a pressure washer (how that happened... I'm still not sure, but I'm missing a good chunk of skin on my hand 🙄) I have no clue what time it is right now (yes - I'm quite delirious at this point) but I'm pretty positive it's time for a pedicure, a glass of wine (or 3 🍷🍷🍷) and a nap 😴. Anyone else get kicked in the butt this month like I did? Here's to hoping July is a little more tame and a little more friendly 😬😬
Holy heat!!! It's going to be a hot one today ☀️😳☀️ I've lived in #Texas my entire life and I'm just not sure I'll ever get used to the heat. Are the summer temps hitting you guys today too? #texasheat #summertime #pooldesign
Finally! This little guy is starting to feel better after 2 rounds of a tummy bug. 😢 Soaking up his sweet cuddles and thankful he's slowly getting back to his normal self. #lovehim #babyboy #feelbetter
Happy Father's Day to the best Dad I could have ever imagined for my kiddos. You're their super hero! And mine too 😉😘 Love you babe! #happyfathersday 📷@reveriephotoco
Loving this design board I created for a recent client of mine's front porch. It's really got me feelin' summer this morning ☀️😎☀️😎
Firing up this bad boy this evening to enjoy a night with friends, eat pizza and just relax 😎😎 What are your Friday night plans? Anyone else enjoying a laid back night at home? #friyay #homesweethome
YOU GUYS. We just got back our family photos from @reveriephotoco and I'm OBSESSED. I seriously can't stop drooling over them. I'll be sharing the full session on the blog soon, so stay tuned! Until then, I'll probably be spamming you guys here on insta... #justkidding #justserious 🙄
New brand, but the same ole me 😘😘 Guess who’s been up to a new look? Yup, that’s me! I’ve been up to a lot lately, in fact. A new brand is just one of many exciting things happening over here. I won’t get too far into the details just yet, but what I will say is I’m LOVING the new brand that I’ve created for myself. For a long time, I’ve wanted to streamline the many creative adventures I’ve launched over the years. Not only do I run The Blissful Bee, but I also write a lifestyle blog, Harp & Hud, and run my interior design business, Five 12 Main, on the side. And if you can’t tell, I’m also a graphic designer and web developer. I design all of my branding as well as my websites. So it got me thinking. I need a new look. A new brand. One that makes sense for… ME! So for all of you who have followed me over the years, don’t worry, nothing is changing “content-wise”. The only thing changing is how you might see me on social media – and yes, even my blog (see that new super cool header? Yeah, I kinda love it!) Sure, it might be a gradual change, and it might not happen all at once, but eventually I plan on using my real name, Amy Horany, on my social media channels. That way, you can really get to know the PERSON behind the blog, and not see just another “brand.” Because, yes! I’m a person, not just a brand! And if you’re wondering how my last name is pronounced, let me help ya out a bit! It sounds like this : Hooray-Knee. Simple, right? 😉
Happy birthday to the most incredible husband and father @chadhorany! Everyone and anyone who meets you instantly loves you because of the genuine person that you are. I love you so much babe! And I promise I won't tell anyone that you're turning the big 4-0 today 😘😘 (photo cred 📸 @reveriephotoco )
Momma finally got her mommy makeover in the form of some new hair extensions 😍😍😍(done by the amazing @mermaidhairxo 😘) and I think little Harper likes the new look 💕💕Sad my baby girl is home sick again today (just a minor tummy bug), but also secretly happy we get to hang out all day 😊😊Already off to a great #mothersday weekend and it's only Thursday!
Just presented a super fun design to an awesome client of mine! I love it when I get to have fun with color 😍 Can't wait to see it all come together! For more of my design services, visit my new website 👉🏻👉🏻five12main.com 👈🏻👈🏻
I must admit, this ain't a bad view 💕💕🏡🏡 Happy Saturday everyone!
They're both sick, yet somehow still both smiling!! 😀😀😀 These kiddos are the toughest and cutest things ever! #lovethem
