What is This Made Of?!

We are currently in the process of remodeling our living room . . . .

 I LOVE this style fireplace, but feel like it would get rather dirty since we still have a wood stove and not a gas fireplace.

Anybody know what material the white mantel is made of?

Also, would love to hear about any websites to go to for design inspiration!! :)


Bryce & Bowen's Birthday Party!

My niece, Bryce, and my nephew, Bowen, celebrated their 3rd and 1st birthdays (respectively) in August.

I really can't believe they are that old already! Time sure flies when you are having fun!

Bryce was a princess!

And Bowen was a prince!

These two have made my life better in so many ways! Bryce is starting to interact so much more and say the cutest, most funny things! And Bowen is starting to interact more too and actually ran to give me a hug! Melted my heart! I really don't know how they can get any cuter, but it always seems to happen! I can't wait to watch them grow and learn even more!
