Jewelry Smewelry, Organization Smorganization

I like my baubles. I guess when your pregnant, not pregnant, nursing, not nursing, up a size, down a size accessories kind of become your best friend. You feel me? A totally plain shirt and jeans looks like you tried if you throw on a necklace or some statement earrings. It can even disguise the […]


Our “Master” Bedroom

Master is most definitely in quotes, because short of it being our room, it isn’t very master-y. That’s a word folks. If master bedroom brings up images of ample square footage, walk in closets and attached master baths, you are not thinking of our room. It is cozy, with a decent closet for a house […]


Puffy Paint Glow Pumpkin

I can’t believe it is possible that I am a craft blogger and this is my first pumpkin blog post. What? Crazy, right? I found this pumpkins at Target’s Dollar Spot. The name is a tad misleading since the pumpkin was in fact, $2.50. Either way, cheapest pumpkins I’ve seen. I was fortunate to be […]


A Day In The Life

Ask and you shall receive. Some of y’all said you wanted to see a day in the life post. Be prepared to be wowed. Or not. Probably more not. Turns out I am super bad at this. I tried snapping pictures with my iPhone throughout the day. Turns out I got a lot of dark […]


Dollar Store Tray to Chalkboard Decor

I have an obsession with chalkboard paint. We have it on the closet doors in the kid’s rooms and in the kitchen. When I got some Martha Stewart Chalkboard paint (courtesy of Plaid Crafts) I was just itching to turn something into a chalkboard. Over the weekend I was at the Dollar Store trying to […]


Fun Kid Bookmark

Lately Quinn has been obsessed with reading big books. We have tried some chapter books and he loves reading these big story collections. Enter: Ghetto fabulous bookmarks, Star Wars Fruit snack wrapper and scrap of fabric. I wish I was kidding. The funny thing is: Quinn became obsessed with these bookmarks. He HAD to open […]


This Mom’s Back To School’s Musings

This week Quinn started preschool. It is only two days a week for 2.5 hours. Even though his time away isn’t long, it is monumental. It is the start of his school career and his experiences without me. The start of him meeting people I don’t know. It is hard to wrap my head around […]


Am I Ready To Have Children?

Today I saw a blog post about knowing if you are ready to have kids. The blogger talked about people being in love with the idea of a wedding and not really thinking about the long haul. She wondered if she was in love with the idea of having a baby. You know the shower, […]


Fall Mantle & Printable

The fall mantle is done-zo! I think. I have been known to fiddle, create and tweak, but for now I am calling it DONE :). If you have been following along you know all about how I created that burlap and fabric flower fall wreath,  the rope vase and the tractor and hay photography. Remember […]


August In Review

August seemed to be about three things: 1. Crossing things off of our summer to do list. 2. Back to School. 3. Prepping for fall. It is absolutely crazy to me that summer is over, that Quinn will start preschool and turn 4 this fall and that my husband is going to be 30. Seems […]
