Hello! Today I am doing a different type of post “A day in the Life”. I personally love taking a peek into others schedules and see how they get things done (especially with kids, because I have some of my own!). I partnered with the creators of “Goodnight Moon” a favorite book to share Finn’s schedule and mine. You can also ENTER to WIN two books! (Great gift if you don’t have young kids). Hop over to the blog and let me know if I didn’t address something you were interested in knowing!
YOU GUYS! FRIENDS! No really LISTEN up! I am so excited to share this home tour with you today I have to yell at you! I creeped my way into this coastal home in our neighborhood and took a million pictures to share with you today. I don’t know if I can pick one spot I love the most, it is all so good. I really love how original and unique it is. Such an eclectic mix of wallpaper and unique pieces. I can’t wait for you to see it. Please leave a comment on my post. Tell me what is your favorite part and if you like to see these type of posts on my blog!
I feel like I took a lot of pictures this past week. But haven’t shared them yet- until today! I joined another Fall Blog Tour. I really like doing these because it pushes me to clean-up and take pictures of areas I maybe wouldn’t be sharing or talking about on the blog for who knows when. I shared my girls bedroom- hung new curtains and was able to squeeze another chair in their room! Also a picture of our new front door and back door painted black. And my favorite new thing in our home- the cushions on our banquette!
Pop over and see it all today and see the other bloggers featured on todays home tour!
This post might not be for all of you. I almost didn’t share it, but I thought all of my blog posts aren’t for everyone.
I wrote this post because we have had many tears in the morning. And when I look back I can typically relate it back to the fact that we were not prepared.
If you have kids heading back to school or have been there done that we all need your tips! Pop over and leave a comment on your back-to-school hacks! I would love to read them.
I didn’t share this pic on my blog today- thought I would share it with just you. Because I do get asked often to see the inside of our closets and where we keep everything. This is the girls bedroom closet. The top row is Ella’s clothes and the bottom is Lola’s. I bought a cheap plastic laundry basket because it can squeeze the best in their closet…exactly where I like to hide it! And a little step stool so they can get to the top shelves.
Hello from the crazy wallpaper lady! Am I that girl? Well I don’t really care, I like it and that is all that matters. Am I Right?! I know you all agree- do what you love in your home. I have to say that adding a wallpaper accent wall is a really good idea and Domino Magazine agrees with me! Come read why and see what the new wallpaper I just hung in my girls bedroom looks like.
But as promised I will share just with you the “the mess” and it actually isn’t too and looking at these pics. If I could have zoomed in on all the dust bunnies under the beds when I slid them away from the wall, that would have been the real deal.
If you follow me over on Instagram you might have seen my long winded explanation of the day I had when I snapped the below pic. Basically it involved a stove that was too dirty and created a bunch of smoke while baking cookies. Flies everywhere from having the doors open…trying to clear the smoke out. And not being able to walk in this room all while friends from church were over for a visit.
I like to be real with you guys, my home doesn’t always look like the pictures you are going to see on today’s blog post- but hopefully it still feels lived-in and loved.
And you walk away inspired and do not feel less-than when you see our home.
I am not answering an “Ask Nesting with Grace” Design question today. I will be answering a couple of them tomorrow via this email and also on my Friday Favorites Blog Post. So stay tuned. If you haven’t sent me a design question yet- what are you waiting for?! It could also be a blogging question, anything really! Love to hear from you.
P.S.- If you are wanting to try Temporary Wallpaper and want a little sample of one that I have in my home let me know and I can send you one or ask one of contacts for one. Just reply to this email.
Hello! I have a fun Friday Favorites for you today. An easy healthy recipe, a new favorite dress I bought yesterday from Old Navy, a Home Tour I loved, how we saved $1400 a year and a few other favorite things from the past week!
It has almost been a year since we set up this nursery for our baby boy. I shared what has worked and a few changes we have made- including a new side table. I gave tips on how we painted the furniture in our babies room- the safest way with low VOC- great tips for painting any furniture.
We did it- we finished painting the piano. Really it only took maybe two hours. Come see what the soft pink looks like on our piano and how I changed up a few things around the piano. Warning- It might give you spring fever and make you want to eat a Cadbury Egg!
Ella, my oldest just turned 9. We had a fun birthday party for her that actually would be fun for any party. I was surprised to find canvas’s are pretty inexpensive when bought in bulk and acrylic paints are so fun to use. Come see how they turned out and a great way to mix in kids art into your home.
We have been enjoying the little changes we made to the girls shared bedroom in and sitting in their new hanging chair every night since we got it and reading. Such a cozy little spot. I wanted to follow up on that post. I get a lot of questions on how I keep my girls room clean and organized and where we keep it ALL in a small house. So I thought I would share our little tips and some behind the scenes pics that help keep us organized and functioning in tighter quarters.
Happy Friday! I have to share how much I love our new hanging chair. I sing whenever I talk about it. Who knew something like a hanging chair could make me so happy! Actually I knew. I have been wanting one ever since birth…not really but close. Come see how the chair looks in the girls bedroom and the Christmas gift my husband had them make for me in their refreshed bedroom.
