I’ve been a frantic hot mess all day today. Why? Because I’ve been waiting on a very important phone call that I’ve been anticipating for the past 6 weeks. I can’t even tell you how I felt when that phone rang at 4:30pm this afternoon. I jumped up and screamed “The phone is ringing! This could be the call!” and my husband looked at me like I was a maniac and said “Then answer it!!”. I looked down at the phone, and swiped right.Continue Reading
We’ve lived here for over 5 years and it’s embarrassingly sad how bare our walls still are. Neither of us had much wall art when we moved in, so our walls remained quite empty for a long time. Recently, I’ve been adding some homey touches to our walls to incorporate some color and life. I’ve done quite a bit DIY wall decor, but I’ve been looking for some really nice quality art pieces for awhile. Something we can keep for years and years, something timeless, but trendy, something that’s “us”. And I think I finally found it on Minted.com.

We’ve got 2 bathrooms in our house. The one in the master bedroom, that no one sees, and the one that is “the girls” bathroom, in the hallway that everyone (including guests!) uses. Because it’s the main bathroom in the house and 2 kids under 10 use it daily, it gets messy really fast. There is hair everywhere, toothpaste in the sink, and wet towels and clothes on the floor – it’s a nightmare. Since Summer is coming up and we’re gonna be having some guests over soon, I decided to do a quick little “Bathroom Makeover” using just a few upcycled items around the house to make the bathroom look it’s best, with minimal effort!Continue Reading
I am not really one for wreaths. It makes me think of ugly, dusty grandma decor from the 90’s, or Christmas. Not that I am against either of those things, I just think they have their places.
Lately around Pinterest I have been seeing wreath madness! Madness I tell you! I don’t know where these people live that they have storage for 37 different kinds of wreaths. My garage already looks like an episode of Hoarders Junior. I now currently own
3 4 wreaths. One is an everyday wreath that I hang inside and just change out the decor on (maybe I should post about that too…) and 2 are Christmas wreaths, an indoor one made with sparkles and ornaments and holiday kitsch, and an outdoor one that Charlie’s grandma made him YEARS before we were married. It’s sort of falling apart, and I have to hot glue it back together every Christmas, but it’s sort of lovely that he cherishes it, so I let it slide.
