So I just looked at the date that I originally started this blog post. April 19th, 2019. Ha. 🤦🏻♀️ Guess I got busy, ya know, with school wrapping up, vacationing in Italy, all while planning and preparing for a move across country! 🤯🤯🤯 (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, or that I even moved, lol, I share all about it in this previous post. ) . Needless to say, lol, life has been a little crazy the last few months. I’m sorry that it’s taken me soooooo long to share the details of our super simple DIY photo gallery wall! I updated this wall not too long before we had to move and I absolutely fell in love with it!! I’m going to recreate this exact same look in our new home! Which we officially move into NEXT WEEK!!!! (Champagne waterfalls everywhere!!)
Yay!!!! It’s finally here!!! The new Fall Hearth and Hand line officially launched at Target today!!! There are so many beautiful items you guys! I mean duh, would we expect anything less from Queen Joanna?! I wouldn’t necessarily call today Christmas Morning…but it’s a close runner up! Haha!
Seriously though, I love the warm neutrals she used with the subtle pops of traditional fall color! I’m probably loving it so much because it’s exactly what I envisioned when I started thinking through my plans for this year’s fall decor. That must mean me and JoJo are spirit animals. #nootherwaytoseeit Haha okay I’m kidding! I swear I’m not creepy!
Well I guess we better jump into the goodies here before things get weird.
Hey hey Friends!! It’s here! Your Weekly Steals for August Week 3!
It’s the last Monday before school starts for this crazy crew. My kids are so excited!! I’m dreading it! I don’t really know why exactly. It may be because both my kids get incredibly anxious and cry anytime they have to be somewhere new without out us. There are so many new things they’re going to be exposed to: new schools, new buses, a new house, new teachers, new new new new. I think I’m nervous about how they’re going to adjust, how they’ll be treated, if they’ll be happy…you know, all the “mom” things. That, plus I hate setting my alarm. Haha. That’s the selfish part. Anyway!! I know many of you have started this week or will be starting soon, so good luck to all of you and your littles!!
Okay I did it! I put together a Back to School Sales roundup for those of you who still have shopping to do before our favorite little people (or our once little but now big people) head back out to learn some things. I decided not to include actual school supplies (pencils, pens, markers, etc.) because I think most of that is pretty self explanatory. Instead, I tried to focus more on clothing, shoes, larger supplies (backpacks, lunchboxes, etc.), and dorm goodies.
Please note that a lot of these Back To School Sales have expiration dates so you better snag what you need before time runs out!
Howdy ho y’all! Your Weekly Steals for the second week of August have arrived!! (If you wanna go back and take a peek at Week 1, HERE it is!) I just can’t believe we’re cruising into Week 2 already!!🤯🤯🤯 I am NOT ready for the school year to start! I mean, it feels like summer just started! 😭😭😭 My daughter is going into 1st Grade in just a few days and we haven’t even moved into the new house yet! Because of that, we’re going to have to commute for the first 2 weeks, and y’all….I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be downright painful. Waking up a 6 year old and a 4 year old at 5:30am EVERY. DAY!!!! Send prayers. And coffee. And lots of wine.
We made it y’all!! Week 2 of Weekly Steals and I’m still on schedule!! Haha! I’m feelin’ pretty accomplished right about now. Yes I know it’s only week 2, but still!
Alright, gonna keep the intro short and sweet today because I haven’t slept in over 2 days, I’m a little delirious, and who knows what I’ll say if I keep typin’ away here.
Mornin’ y’all! Okay, so I’ve been thinking about starting this Weekly Steals series for a while now and today I decided to go ahead and take the plunge! Every week I get inundated with marketing emails of all kinds. Most of the time I just delete and ignore because it just gets to be soooooo much information. I have no doubt that many of you feel (and delete) the same way I do! That said, I thought it would be helpful to start taking those emails, filtering through, and rounding up what I think are the best deals for that week (every week). I’ll then link them here (so you can have them all in one place), share my favorite picks from each retailer, and lastly, do a brief recap of the things I shared on my Instagram stories so you can find them once they disappear.
What do y’all think? Would you find a Weekly Steals & Recap series helpful? Most of the items will be home and home decor related, but I will include any fashion/beauty/lifestyle items I shared throughout the week in my recap portion.
**Also to note, this will be the only time I do a long winded intro for this series. 😂😂 . Just wanted to preface what the plan was here.
Alright. Let’s do this!
Amazon fans unite! It’s our favorite day (or days) of the year!! Today and tomorrow (July 15th and 16th) are Amazon Prime Days!! WOOHOO!!! It’s finally here!! What is that you ask? Well, only Amazon’s two best shopping days of the year! For these two days only, Amazon has some AMAZING deals!!! So many great items are deeply discounted making it a great time to snag those splurges you’ve been eyeing, stock up on the necessities, or even begin the dreaded (and often expensive) Christmas shopping!
A few things to note: Continue reading
If you’ve ever built or designed a new home, you know there’s a TON of decision making that goes into it! Like, a ton!! If you’re indecisive like me, it can get to be a little overwhelming. The funny thing is, I always know what I DON’T like, but sometimes it’s hard for me to decide between things that I DO like. That said, the more options I have, the harder it is to nail down my final selection. Soooo….it’ll probably make sense to you when I say that I spent a total of 12 HOURS at the Drees Design Center finalizing all our color and design options for the new home we’re building. If it wasn’t for their super helpful designers I’d probably still be there right now 😂😂.
The other day I asked you guys on Instagram to submit any questions you have about the house or the build process, and as promised, I’m going to answer them here for y’all. So here it goes! Continue reading
Wow, you guys! Wal-Mart has SERIOUSLY stepped up their game in the Home Decor department over the last couple years. Every season I’m more and more impressed with the fun goodies they come out with!! So, of course they were my go-to when I started shopping around for affordable spring decor!!
If you remember, I did a Wal-Mart Holiday Round-Up a few months back. Well, y’all loved that one so much I thought I’d do another one for Spring!! Pluuuuusss….I may have mentioned this already, (if you follow me on Insta, you know I haven’t stopped mentioning it 😂) but I’m so sick of Winter at this point that I’m literally trying to bury myself in all things Spring! I’m trying to will it here with ALL my might!!
So, because I’m already working on Springifying my home, (and bc tomorrow officially kicks of the start of my second favorite season) I thought I’d share some of the inspiration I’ve pulled from, and give y’all some ideas for refreshing yours!
