Staycation Phase 3

I know, it’s a little late! Better late than never! Getting back into routine has been challenging this week! For our remaining few staycation days, we focused on family and relaxation. Thursday we spent some time outdoors, Chisum and I even played in the water on the trampoline. We worked on a new habitat for…

Staycation Phase 2

Quality family time! It has been so nice to just not have to follow a schedule this week! That in itself can be so relaxing! It wasn’t as challenging as I thought it would be to find free and cheap ways for us to have fun! This may be easier with young children but I…

Staycation Phase 1

And so it began with a surprise visit from Antsy! Chisum immediately fell asleep in her arms, it was the sweetest! We love when Antsy comes to stay and brings all the craziness with her! We ate some delicious food and also shopped till we dropped! And finally got out to see Hotel Transylvania 3,…

Summer Fun Ideas: Book Binge

Hey y’all! How is your summer going? Can you believe it’s almost over? I’m learning as my son gets older to be more intentional about our summer break because it flies by in a flash! Now that we have just about 3 more weeks before school starts, I really want to make the most of…

Nook Restyle Revealing

A Momma workspace. Hey y’all! We finally got that nook restyled! Remember the ugly? Well it’s been greatly improved! I’ve been wanting to do a matte black shiplap wall and this seemed like the ideal spot to use it! I shared some ideas and polled my friends as you may recall from the Nook Restyle…

Classic Masculine Design Board

Remember that ugly bathroom I showed you guys about a month ago? The one that’s got a lot of bulky wood and peeling wall texture? Well I finally got a vision! This is our front, also guest, bathroom, but mainly, the one my husband and son use. So I wanted to use classic pieces and…

Nook Restyle

Currently I’m in the process of restyling a little nook in our family room! There is an end goal for this space, to become the home of some beautiful stairs leading to a finished attic space! But for now, I just want it to be functional, and of course beautiful! The dream: As always, when…

$111 Bathroom Restyle

Our office bathroom has been the same since we moved in 7+ years ago! The same old dingy, yellowish walls left behind by whatever officed here prior to us! And no matter how clean it actually was, it always still felt dirty. So my boss gave me a $100 allowance to work my magic! I…

Big Boy Alert

I’ve heard people say that one day they were holding their newborn infant with one hand and the next they were shaking their grown son’s hand and sending him off to college. I know that time is like watching water evaporate: when you’re watching intently, it slowly dissipates, but if you glance away for a…

Glamour, Putting it in its Place.

I recently heard this simple, yet life-altering phrase: “Glamourizing the messy, and not the message.” And it stopped me dead in my tracks. In lieu of music while I’m working, I’ve been listening to podcasts and my current fave is Allie Casazza. She is passionate about sharing her motherhood and decluttering wisdom. Her ideas and…
