Living debt free
- Published on Monday, 22 December 2014
This time of year I’m especially…incredibly grateful that we are one of the weird ones. Well, I’m always weird but weird meaning debt free. :)
If you’ve read along with me for awhile you know our story – we were $125,000 in debt. It was a combination of everything – I took out a ton of credit to get through college and had a pretty decent s...
Christmas Tree Party, 2014
- Published on Thursday, 18 December 2014
Well hello! It’s that time again! I’ve hosted this little shindig for six years now – crazy! It’s time to gather together and show off your beautiful Christmas trees and decor:
But first, mine! :)
We usually have four trees in our home – it sounds crazy but one I’ve never even decorated till this year:
And it was so easy and cheap – check i...
Photo tree and a holiday bedroom
- Published on Tuesday, 16 December 2014
Hello my friends! I’m starting to freak out a little bit…Christmas is next week right?? I’ve been ignoring this fact for awhile now. The funny thing is that I’m still decorating. It will only stay out for a couple of weeks but I’m really enjoying it so I continue to fluff. :)
I’ve tackled some little projects in our bedroom over the past f...
A few of my favorites!

Hello there! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Some friends and I had what we think was our 8th annual Christmas exchange – we’ve done it so long we’ve lost track. We also celebrated our grandson’s FIRST birthday, can you believe it? I’ve mentioned before that this month is unusually busy for our family -- that’s because so many people tha...

Hello my friends! Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you!
I’ll be sharing more of our Christmas decor next week but I had to laugh as I talked with fellow blogging friends earlier this week. We all shared photos of our houses “behind the scenes” and it always makes me feel so good to know I’m not the only one who doesn't have it al...
The perfect Christmas cookie
- Published on Thursday, 11 December 2014
I’m in the kitchen again…I know, don’t pass out. It happens occasionally. ;) I’m hosting a Christmas party for girlfriends tonight (we had to do it on a weeknight because this time of year is so crazy!) and we’re doing a cookie exchange as well.
I begged my sister to come over to help make some with me (she’s the baker). She was too busy b...
Christmas home tour, part 1!

Hello my friends! It’s that time of year again – I’m joining 19 other bloggers for another series of beautiful holiday home tours:
My friend Just a Girl is our host and if you’re visiting from Decor Chick’s Christmas kitchen, welcome!
So here’s the thing…I had every intention of this being a whole house tour. Then I realized there was NO WA...
I’m so blue
- Published on Monday, 08 December 2014
First of all, I need to shout out to the world a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our not-so-little man! Can you believe he is eight today? I know some of you have been following along with me for years (thank you for that) and I simply cannot believe that he was only 18 months old when I started this blog. We are truly the luckiest parents ever – h...
Board and batten tutorial

Happy Friday! Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned -- even if that means laying on the couch watching Christmas movies, cause that sounds amazing. I’ll be doing the same for at least a little bit. :)
I’m back today with a quick tutorial on a project I’ve shared a few times here on the old blog…but I don’t know that I’ve really shared t...
Quick, easy and under $20 gifts!
- Published on Tuesday, 02 December 2014
Hello my friends!! Now that December is upon us it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Some of you totally-on-it people have already finished your shopping and I bow down to you. This one is for those of us (uhhhh…me) who still need some ideas.
As a part of the Better Homes and Gardens bloggers I’m sharing a couple ideas I came up with –...
