Use Your Clutter As Home Decor + A Little Home Tour.

Be honest right now. Are you watching "Tidying Up" on Netflix? I absolutely am! I love that show. I think a lot of people are intimidated by it, because they feel backed into a corner and like they need to immediately burn everything they own. That simply isn't true! I read the book back in 2015 or 2016, and found it very eye opening. It was really the start of a love of design for me! What I found during…

Visiting Chicago With Kids!

We loved visiting Chicago with our sons, we've gone several times. Soo, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite things to do there!1) Where to stay: I suggest instead of staying downtown, you stay at the new Great Wolf Lodge!

How To Unplug More In 2019!

I had a humbling experience recently when we first moved to our new house. We had incredibly limited cell phone reception and phone service, and it was VERY eye opening to see how I felt in that situation.

Actual Ways To Spend Less Money In The New Year.

I love being frugal, but I feel like last year we just got lazy in this area of our lives. Our second cross country move in two and half years took priority, and I slipped off the couponing wagon simply because I didn't want more things to move. So, as we head into the new year and your family starts thinking about ALL your goals, perhaps you really want to reign in your spending some.I think so many of us…

How To Use Toys In Your Home Design

I'm hardly a home designer! However, I am a mom to two wild & crazy little boys and I don't love clutter. It stresses me out. Chaos is just a stress trigger for me so when I can cut down on things triggering me, I always try to.Toys can be so hard to contain! My first piece of advice is always to purge, purge, purge.

Our Trip To Magnolia!

If you've followed me for any period of time, then you probably know I have a deep love for all things Fixer Upper! I've wanted to visit Magnolia Farms in Waco, Texas for years now. On our cross country trip, it worked out perfectly to stop in and spend two days with some friends we have in the area. They were so gracious hosts, and it was so NICE to have space to spread out after sleeping in hotels four…
