Pantry Organization

Our pantry was literally eating the food I put into it. I couldn't find a dang thing when I needed to, and I knew something had to change. I am an Amazon Assocaite, and I make a small commission off links you click on my blog and this post. I started putting ALL dry foods [...]

Happy Hardware

For those of us who like to do the things ourselves, there is nothing more frustrating than hiccups due to an inferior product. Ever have a screw head break off while screwing? A hinge bend so much it's not salvageable? If it requires a trip to the store to remedy the problem, consider frustration to [...]

Affordable Wall Sconces

Affordable Wall Sconces

Add a sconce or two to your design and it's immediately illuminated, pun intended. Especially, after I found the trick for the battery powered LED lights attached to a sconce that is NOT attached to power. Now it doesn't feel so strange having a random light fixture that isn't actually working. I just love how [...]

Outdoor String Lights

Outdoor String Lights

If you are considering adding ambiance lighting to your outdoor space, do it! Lighting can evoke a variety of feelings, usually consisting of warm and fuzzies. I have always had a sense of calm and tranquility from glowing lights at night. While the ones we chose are bigger than a firefly, they remind me of [...]

Girly Pink Bathroom

Girly Pink Bathroom

This project taught me a few things about myself, I am bad at underestimating time, and I have a tendencies to do the "if you give a mouse a cookie ...." spiral on most things. Below is how this space started! Presley's room was not the right color, so I changed that last fall by [...]

Guest Room Reveal

Guest Room Reveal

I am so excited to reveal our guest room! It's a very cozy space in the basement. It doesn't have any windows so it's kinda like a little guest cave. Definitely could get some good, dark shut eye in there! This post may contain affiliate links and is sponsored by JCPenney. Thank you to the [...]

Should you Build or Buy?

Should you Build or Buy?

My first home was lovely. It was charming, quaint, spacious. It had all the things and more I could ever ask for in a home. Our family was started there, and there too, our family grew. To the point we outgrew the house. Considerations taken when buying a home pre-family, vs. post family, are drastically [...]

Holiday Mood Boards

Holiday Mood Boards

Yesterday was such a fun day! I intended to go shopping with my kids and then everything went wrong and it was nap time so I ditched them at home and ventured out alone. It was awesome to spend some getting inspo for the season, rather than just yelling at my kids to stop touching [...]

Halloween Treats

It was so fun to make these spooky treats with my kids. They were so easy and quick and make an adorable table addition. I got the idea for these treats from Pinterest. Here is the article which has some helpful hints if you plan to use a Skelton for the display. I had baking [...]
