Last minute grad gift

It’s that time of year again, end of school is already here! I know, I can’t believe it either! It goes by faster and faster every year! And it’s grad week! If you’re like me, you probably have multiple grads in your life. We had four this year! And all over the state! We’ve already…

Pops of Personality

I love color! I also love clean! So how do I marry the two, without regretting a decorating choice two years from now? I think many of us face this struggle when we move into a new home! I would love to be that woman that knows exactly what she likes and will like for…

Thinking Caps On

Hey y’all! How’s your week going? It’s hump day, already! So this week I’m just searching for inspiration! I need a little break from decluttering (reading Declutter: The Japanese Art of Minimalism for motivation) because it’s just so emotionally stressful! For now, I’m wanting to do a quick-style in the boys bathroom! I say boys,…

Work Hard, Play Hard

Chisum and I decided we deserved a little reward after all of our decluttering & donating! Knowing that I don’t want to bring more stuff back into the house, we hit Goodwill after school with a very specific shopping mission! I told C he was allowed as many books as he wanted and one toy….

Wednesday, A Day of Rest

It’s 46° and rainy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining! Chisum and I need the snuggles just as much as we need the rain in West Texas! However, it feels much more like a dreary Fall day instead of April 25th! But I love a good excuse to sit down, be lazy and enjoy…

Function over Beauty

Don’t you love those times when you receive the same message from several different sources? I do! Some people call them confirmations. I call it a sign! I can’t even remember all the places I heard/read this mantra over the past week, likely in a book and on a couple of blogs. The phrase is…

Donate Day

When I started decluttering, it didn’t seem like I was making much headway. It was a daunting, emotional process! I’m still wondering what I have begun! But I hope this is the beginning of some healthy, new habits! I’m still a little surprised at how much stuff I just gave away! 7 boxes plus some…

A Momma Porch Spot

Update! I got these gorgeous stadium chairs recently and wasn’t sure where I was going to use them! What better porch spot than under my wall garden! I may move them yet, but for now, this is my new favorite spot! My sweet little camera guy insisted on taking my picture! Here’s one of him!

Porch Moments

We have this glorious porch on three sides of our house! It’s one of the reasons we fell in love with this property. So I’ve been working on the porch in small sections. I wanted to create seating areas all around and an outdoor dining experience! The sun rises on the back and sets on…

Taking Inventory

Does a girl really need three sets of mixing bowls in three different materials? The answer is NO! Unless she’s an avid baker that is, or using her personal kitchen for a baking business!! Using Remodelista’s Kitchen Inventory List, and being inspired by Cait’s Year of Less where she got rid of more than 40%…
