Five Things Friday

1. Whole30 Update This is my “studio” where I recorded my thoughts on Whole30 for a segment running on Dr. Oz. Who would have thunk? After finishing Whole30, I didn’t know where to go so I figured I would just do another round. After more reading and research, I realized that I had to trust […]


Porch Makeover Details

Yesterday I shared how we made and hung our very cool number sign as part of our porch makeover. Today, I want to share the details of this project. When we first looked at our house 7 years ago all I saw was wrought iron vines and grapes. I almost didn’t even set foot inside […]


The Kitchen & A Printable

You don’t have to compromise on clean to be green. Today I’m sharing my kitchen, some cleaning and organizational tips and a printable. I have to tell you guys that I am a big fan of Clorox Greenworks. I first bought the all-purpose spray last spring for a campaign and have become a big fan. […]

I just love tissue paper tassel garland. It is fun and festive and has just the right touch of whimsy. Don’t ya think? I used some in a game day post that you can find here. There are lots of fun football printables in that post plus I have every single letter in the alphabet […]


Bathroom Updates, Organization & Printable

You don’t have to compromise on clean to be green. This weekend we tackled our bathroom. Remember a week before my scheduled c-section with baby #3 when we gutted the bathroom? We finished it just in time and there it sat. This weekend it got a good cleaning, some reorganization and some style, because let’s […]


A DIY Shirt With a Special Touch

I am so excited about this project. As soon as I finished I texted a picture to my mom and my friend and anyone who would listen. Now let me start by saying how blessed I was to invited out to Utah to meet the fine people at Cricut and get a sneak peek at […]

How to Paint Stripes & Our Dining Room Wall Update

It happened. The shelf has come down. As much fun as that shelf was, it was time for a change. Kind of like when you just decide to chop off your hair–randomly, one day. Or am I the only one who does that? We are kind of in love with stripes around here. We painted […]

Because Who Really Wants to Vacuum the Stairs

This post brought to you by BISSELL Homecare, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine. Confession: Our stairs have been vacuumed once in a year–give or take. I’m pretty sure just once, during my all out nesting session prior to having Hudson. The kids’ rooms upstairs–not that much better. First you would have to be able […]


Silver and Gold Fillable Lamp

I know it is August so it is a bit crazy to be thinking about winter or Christmas, but Lamps Plus and Hometalk are hosting a Holiday Design Challenge and yours truly is participating. I am really crushing on metallics lately. Mixing metals is where it is at and I’m falling back in love with […]
