home decor

Happy Wednesday 🙂 I totally feel like I’m “on a roll” with 2 blog posts this week – although I realize not truly impressive since I used to post 5 days a week.  However,  I’m patting myself on the back for making the blog a priority this week!

For those that follow along on Instagram (@hillarykweidner) you know that we moved a few months ago.  We bought an old horse barn built in the 1800’s and redid a LOT of the inside.  With all that work came fresh, new decor and I want to share with you some of my absolute FAVORITE pieces we bought from Serena & Lily.

***S&L is having their friends & family so everything is 20% off!  Definitely a perfect time to pull the trigger on some items you have been eyeing***

Counter Stools.  Find them HERE.

[Okay, so you may have seen these a lot and in several different finishes but I have to tell you how obsessed I am with these counter stools.  Not only are they the perfect height for our kitchen island, but they are SO comfortable and probably THE MOST kid-friendly furniture we have in our house.  Yes, Poppy loves yogurt and makes a giant mess while eating it but as soon as she’s finished, I pop her on the ground and take my scrub brush to the seat.  Looks brand new.]


Cubby Bins.  Find them HERE.  

[Before you get too excited about these bins, they are only avail in gray right now.  The navy were discontinued and I legit called every single store across the country to see if they had any and I literally got the last 8 (I wanted nine).  HOWEVER, the gray is beautiful and they are the perfect size for a cubby or anywhere else you need a bin. ]




White Mirror.  Find it HERE.

[I don’t have a specific picture of this white mirror in my home, but this was one of the first things I bought thinking I would put it in my guest bathroom.  I decided to put in a recessed medicine cabinet instead but couldn’t find it in me to return this incredible mirror from Serena & Lily.  I currently have it in the area where I get dressed in the morning and love the simplistic but sophisticated design.  Would also be great in a nursery or guest bedroom]

Bed Side Table.  Find them HERE.

[So the bed side tables I have in the picture below are from One Kings Lane but S&L look very similar.  I am obsessed with their version and the color is perfect.  We pulled up all of the carpet in the house and painted every square inch of the interior and exterior.  I wish I had good pictures of our bedroom before but I am just so happy with how it turned out.  Bright, cheery, and FRESH.  Although not completely finished, I have especially loved my bedside tables in a beautiful navy.]


Step Stool.  Find it HERE.

[One of the things I was very conscious of when decorating certain areas of the house was that it was kid friendly and kid accessible.  With that, I was adamant about incorporating a lot of step stools throughout the house (I think we have 6) to reach countertops, sinks, and beds.  I wanted something that looked good with the rest of the decor – and I found just that with this kid-friendly stool.]

Hurricane Vases.  Find HERE.

[I absolutely adore most things scalloped so when I saw these, I thought they would be the perfect accent pieces for our kitchen table.  The gold/brass matches our kitchen hardware and adds a little fun to our room!]



[I could go on and on about what I love about S&L but check out their items yourself – you wont be disappointed  And like I mentioned earlier, use code HOMELOVE for 20% off your purchase!]




weekly wears


I am doing my best to get back into the swing of things!  So with that, check out my weekly wears below 🙂

[One of my best friends, Teddy, got tickets for our other best friend Meggie, her daughter, Bea and I to this princess tea downtown at the carousel.   It was THE cutest and the girls were totally starstruck by their favorite princesses!]


[We then took them to see Superman put on by the Children’s Theatre in Cincinnati.  If you live in Cincinnati and want something fun to do with your kids, get season tickets.  It is so fun to get dressed up and take them to something special.  And, surprisingly, Poppy (who is not quite two) even sat through the whole thing.  Every time the stage went black for scene changes she would yell “WHAT’S HAPPENING” – it was cute and we had a great time as a family!]


[Hyde Park Country Club doesn’t the cutest thing – a family campout.  You bring your tent, sleeping bags, etc and set up on the golf course.  They have dinner, games, fire pit, and even breakfast in the morning.  Instead of camping out for the Weidners, we visited our sweet nephew/cousin who was jazzed about the night ahead!]


[I also HAVE to share the sweetest school photos.  You guys.  I screamed when I saw these because they are just so funny and so…them! I’m so excited to get our copies!]


[My favorite Fall obsession in my closet right now!  Find them HERE]


[Can’t believe my littlest pumpkin is almost two!]


[And we finally hung up some wall decor in our family room and I am LOVING it!  Thanks to a friend for the inspo!]


[And this is so so important I need to share.  Please consider getting the flu shot.  No, you won’t get the flu by getting the shot, and yes – it may sting.  But it will keep you safe, your family safe, and those around you who may have a fragile immune system safe.]






So as the weather has changed and fall is finally here, I wanted to share with you a recent boot purchase I made.

I have WORN OUT my black pair and dark tan pair of boots from several years ago and finally bit the bullet to replace.  These are boots that I will wear to work so I didn’t want to get super nice ones but still nice enough to be comfortable and cute throughout the week.

The wedge is super comfortable for me and is something I can wear all day long without feeling like I want to take them off.  Find the wedge booties below and a few more pairs I love 🙂
