Hello there! I’m SO excited to tell you about a fun event I have going this evening. Well, not me personally – I mean, I’d love to have you all over but that would get a little crazy.
I was thrilled when Joss & Main asked me to curate a collection on their site:
Have you shopped Joss & Main? They are a members only online shop...

Hello everybody! How was your weekend? We celebrated my Bub’s 7th birthday yesterday – SEVEN! I still can hardly believe it, he was just my sweet baby the other day. (I guess he’ll always be, whether he likes that or not.)
Anyway, we have a big Christmas decor tour starting today – my friend Chris at Just a Girl is coordinating a...

Hello everybody! Sorry for the late post today – we had a two hour delay and things are…well, a couple hours behind. :) We’re supposed to get a ton more snow today and I’m ready – we are stocked up on good food and ready to cuddle in for the night.
Today I’m recapping the month of November and sharing a few of my favorite things (did you w...
Decorating the mantel
- Published on Wednesday, 04 December 2013
Hello everyone! How your week going? We’re supposed to get some nasty weather this weekend – ice and snow I think? And of course today it’s supposed to get up to 60. Such is the life of a Hoosier.
I haven’t started decorating our fireplace mantel just yet for the holiday, but I’m planning on keeping it fairly simple this year. Simple for m...
A quick and easy holiday project!

OK, I feel SO behind this year with the Christmas decor! I mean we lose a week anyway, right? (Between Thanksgiving and Christmas?) And I usually have a decent start going before Thanksgiving. We got a couple trees up before our trip last week but not much else.
I’m determined to get it done this week – I’m just going to enjoy it and take...

Hey there everyone! Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I’m excited to sleep in, stay in my pajama pants all day and eat with family. :) I hope yours is wonderful!
So remember last week when I showed you the massive clean out in the garage? I’m SO happy with it. There was one last project I wanted to complete in there and it was actually f...
Chevron, take two

Hey everybody! Happy Thanksgiving week! I won’t be posting much this week, and today’s post is short and sweet. I’m taking most of the week off and hope you’ll get plenty of family and rest time in too!
So here it is – my second attempt at chevron. If you remember I tried it a few months ago with my chevron Frogtape:
WELL. Funny story....

Hey folks! I’m going to keep this one quick because I have a cold and can’t focus on one thing too long. I looked for my keys for 30 minutes last night and looked for my phone for 20 minutes this morning. My brain is MUSH.
So earlier this week I took a break and went into TJMaxx for a bit. I found this lovely lady:
I put her on Instagram a...
Give yourself a break
- Published on Wednesday, 20 November 2013
So a couple weeks ago, I had one of those moments. I honestly don’t remember what got me so upset, but my husband had been out of town for days, I had forgotten something for the Bub’s school, I had overextended myself blog-wise and I was just feeling like a bad mom and wife in general. Just one of those days.
I was talking to myself (I...
Put a wheel on it
- Published on Tuesday, 19 November 2013
Hey there! I’m back today with a super easy update that I seem to like…a lot. I started thinking about all the times I’ve made this little change to an item and they added up fast.
I think it’s a fun detail that also adds some functionality to a piece you already have. If it needs a little something -- just do what I do…put a wheel on it....
