Last fall we took our first trip as a family to Disney World and it was my dream come true. I had gone to Disney World many times as a child and it has a special place in my heart. When Mike’s parents gave us the opportunity to take our own children, I was ecstatic. I was also inspired to bring a little Disney magic home with us.
I cant believe we are already in week 2 of the $100 Room Challenge! I have been busy getting ideas together for our master bedroom, then scratching those plans, starting again, going on Pinterest and then scrapping the new plans. I have had so many ideas swirling in my head that I needed to just get something done. Something to help set the tone for the room.
Ok. We are officially Glampers!
After a couple of years of saving and dreaming we got our first RV!! A 25 foot travel trailer with a slide-out. To say I am excited is a major understatement. Our search has been going on for years researching online but until this year we never actively looked. This week we found the right unit for us.
And boy do I have a couple good ones!
We are embarking on finally decorating and adding personal touches to our home after a few years of doing larger updates and upgrades. That doesn’t mean along the way we (that means me) didn’t make a few big decor mistakes. The following are my top 5 home design and decor mistakes and how I plan to fix them.
This month I am participating in a fun link up with Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry. I am going to complete my first $100 Room Challenge! The challenge is to makeover one room, in one month with only $100 dollars. I am really excited to take the plunge not only in this fun decorating challenge but in this new blogging experience!
My daughter’s Junior Kindergarten class is taking on the sweet task of taking one thing they own that they no longer use, wear or read, to give to kids in need over the 40 days of Lent. This task isn’t going to be an easy one for our Penny. I think like many 4 year olds, giving something of theirs away is a tough request. My kids tend to get attached to anything we are about to get rid of. Regardless if they haven’t touched it in months. However we felt this is a great lesson in compassion and empathy for other people in need and we want to instill those values in our kids, so 40 Things in 40 Days it is!
I normally don’t mind winter. We find lots of great activities to keep us busy and moving all season long. There is just something about THIS winter that makes it feel like it’s dragging on and on AND ON. Maybe it’s the constant state of freeze and thaw with double digit temps, but I feel like spring should have been here weeks ago.
I wasn’t planning on making a spring wreath attachment until we wrapped up St Patrick’s Day, but I need some spring in my life. So here we go!
I am so excited, and slightly nervous that our family is growing!
We have adopted a rescue puppy named Minnie and were so excited to bring her home this week. Mike and I have always had dogs in our homes as kids and as adults. After a couple of years with no pup to call our own and a 4 year old daughter who is obsessed with dogs, we finally took the plunge and added a dog to our family.
After 5 years of updating our house and raising babies, I have finally started to decorate and make our house feel like a home. I don’t know what look I am going for or what my decorating style is just yet so this has been a steep learning curve for me. I am drawn to more traditional looks but I do like some touches of modern here and there.
My mom who also has more traditional tastes has many pieces packed up in my family home that she no longer uses and from time to time I like to help myself and turn something old, new again.
I love Skip Hop products. I think they are well made and stand up to the wear and tear of the average child. Penny got this Skip Hop backpack almost 2 years go and it is still in such great shape. After a full year of preschool, half of junior kindergarten and countless trips to visit grandparents, the vinyl zipper pull tore making it difficult for her to open and close her backpack independently.
