“This is my beloved and this is my friend” Pallet Sign

Today I have a simple tutorial for y’all, the pallet sign that was in my master bedroom makeover last week. First thing you will need is a pallet, obviously. I know pallet projects have been all the rage lately, but I haven’t ever really used them ....more

Quick and Easy Master Bedroom Makeover

Many of you know that I’m part of the Better Homes and Gardens Live Better Network, and every other month I am challenged to use BHG products in a different way. Well this last month has been pretty busy for us, and the last thing on my mind was blog deadlines. So a few weeks ago (when I was about a week overdue) I finally remembered to look up the next challenge theme and deadline ....more

Nightstand makeover in six easy steps!

Step one – buy a set nightstands off of Craigslist for $30. Use them for about two years without ever getting around to giving them the intended makeover. Step two – One day, when you’re 41.5 weeks pregnant with your third child, decide you are tired of just sitting around waiting to have a baby ....more

Party of Five

Well, I think I’ve kept y’all waiting long enough. Who wants to hear about the new addition? (insert drumroll) It’s a… ....more

Ten home improvement projects I would do again

Well, I didn’t really expect to be sitting around my house writing posts this week, but alas, here I am…41 weeks pregnant. According to the doctor there are no signs that I will go into labor in the next week, so he scheduled me for an induction on Wednesday if nothing happens before then. I’m praying it doesn’t come to that though, because I...more

Ten home improvement projects I won’t be repeating

So today is my official due date. This baby is fully cooked, I’m horribly uncomfortable, and the doctor said at my appointment on Tuesday that it doesn’t look like this kid is planning to come anytime soon. Darn my comfortable uterus! ...more

Top Ten Must-Haves for the Next House

We’re nearing the final stages of designing our new house (almost to the blueprints stage!) and I’ve spent the last couple months reflecting on this house, thinking about what we’ve messed up, what we love, and what we would change. I have a couple of posts coming up relating to all that, and today is the first. My list is actually much, MUCH longer than this (I’m such a pain), but for the sake of time and everyone’s sanity I’m going to keep all my lists down to top ten lists ....more

Rustic Glam Wall Clock

For years now Adam and I have had this ridiculous bedtime routine. We put the kids to bed, and after that we pretty much just veg on the couch, snack, talk, and binge watching whatever we are currently binge watching on Netflix. Then comes that time where it’s starting to get late, and Adam asks me “what time is it?” He’s super responsible at bedtime and goes to sleep at a completely reasonable time….me not he other hand, not so much ....more

We bought land!

Back in October I wrote a post about how we have been land hunting. Our current house was never intended to be our forever home, it was always a place we planned to live in for five or six years, fix up (and make all our DIY mistakes on, if that’s possible), sell, and move on. We’ve owned this house for almost seven years now, and we are ready for the next adventure ....more

Kids Room Toy Shelf (an organized masterpiece)

Two things before I dive into all the DIY goodness… 1) Thank you for all the love and support on my last post about Adam’s accident. He is doing well, a little better every day. He is up and around the house now, and even getting out a bit ....more
