Summer Dinner Ideas

Hi there! Sorry it’s been a while – we just got back from the beach and adjusting to real life again;) I’ve missed you and this little blog space where we connect. Those of you who’ve followed me for a while know I like to mix things up from time to time. Whether it be […]

June 2017 Roundup!

Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Turn An Everyday Kitchen Stool Into a Farmhouse Style Nightstand…and Some Other Stuff…

Do you have a tiny bedroom? How about a tiny budget? A fan of the whole farmhouse-y/old-looking/rustic thing? If so, I have a solution for you! I know, not *exactly* what you had in mind, huh? Hear me out. If you give it a layer of your favorite blue flat finish paint (chalk paint/chalky finish […]

Chalkboard Fridge Update

I finally tackled something that has been on the To-Do List forever. Like, we’re talking YEARS. It wasn’t an expensive project, and didn’t take long, so once I saw what a huge improvement it made, I could KICK MYSELF! One of the very first posts I ever wrote was on our Chalkboard Fridge: Back when […]

A Sweet Little Space for The Dollhouse Room

As you probably know by now, I’ve been refreshing my kids’ rooms lately. My son’s room got a little update, my oldest daughter’s bold colors turned more subdued, and my middle baby’s room turned into a dollhouse feel with that scalloped wall – which I honestly didn’t even think about when I started creating that […]

I Got Three More….An Update on the Gallery Wall

Remember that post I did – with the awesome Walmart frames I fell in love with? I bought six, loved them, and wrote in the post that I might just go snag three more? Well I did. I wasn’t sure if nine would be too many, but oh my word, NOPE! I mean, these faces. […]

Six Year Blogiversary!

Thanks to good ol’ Facebook, I was informed this morning that today is my blogiversary! Yes, six years ago, sitting on my laptop on my giant navy sectional, in a family room that looked oh-so- different than it does today, I sat down and began typing my first post. Never did I EVER imagine I’d […]

Another Chapter Begins…

middle school

I caught a glimpse of you this morning. You were standing outside, waiting for the bus a few minutes early. Just like me, you woke up early with anticipation for today and had time to spare. It’s what we do. You had a bag with your sweater – in case you get chilly – and […]

Fiddling Around The Family Room

One of my very favorite things to do is fiddle around my house.  I just go around, moving some things from this room to that, looking at things in storage for inspiration…it doesn’t cost a dime, and yet I feel like everything is suddenly new and fresh when I’m done. It always brings me joy. If […]
