Thrifty Thursday

Office style Welcome to Thrifty Thursday, where I bring you design ideas, mom-ing ideas, and more! We recently added some walls and redesigned the layout of our office. We did a little musical chairs, and almost everyone is in a new space! With this new space, I inherited a cheery, yellow wall! My previous office…

Thrifty Thursday

Welcome to my very first addition of Thrifty Thursday, where I bring you design ideas, mom-ing ideas, and more! Chisum and I dropped off donations at our favorite thrift store today. Of course, it just so happened to be sack sale! We walked away with a Stearns youth life jacket for $3, and tossed a…

How to survive a 4-year-old, with music!

I had the best of intentions. Relative easy morning, great workday, good energy, sunny afternoon plans with my kid. The stars have aligned! Yet, upon pickup, his first words were “I want Dad.” Cue crushed hopes for a lovely afternoon. Empathizing, “Awe, I’m sorry bud, dad’s at work.” (He got the afternoon off the day…

Thankfulness in Motherhood

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…
