Also, a HUGE thanks to eBay for sponsoring today’s post and our fun bedroom makeover project!! 

Yay!! It’s FINALLY finished!!! We wrapped up E’s bedroom makeover today and he couldn’t be happier with the results!!!  (See my Instagram stories for his reaction 😂).  I have to say y’all, this was one of the EASIEST projects I’ve ever done!  Probably because there was very little paint or woodworking involved, lol.  The “hardest” part was the peel and stick wallpaper I added, but even that wasn’t hard…just sticky 😂😂.   Seriously though, this project now has me motivated to knock out my daughter’s bedroom next!

DIY PHOTO GALLERY WALL, CLEAN & SIMPLE

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!!)

The Best Goodies from the NEW FALL Hearth & Hand Line at Target

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.

Weekly Steals Include Fall Floral Sale at Michaels

Weekly Steals & Recap—July Week 4

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!

Home Design Selections for The New House

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

Affordable Spring Home Decor

Affordable Spring Refresh for Your Home {All Available at Wal-Mart!}

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!
