Boys Bedroom Makeover & Refresh


Before we jump in, as always, I just wanna say real quick, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for any and all affiliate links that you may use throughout this post.  I appreciate MORE THAN YOU know when you support the brands that help to support this little blog & our little fam!!
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!

The Best Educational Games for Kids

 

It’s #Quarantine2020 y’all and I think ALL of us are doing anything and everything we can to try and keep our minds and bodies as busy as possible.  I know at least for me, when I’m keeping occupied and the kids are kept entertained, it makes this prison-like-sitch a little easier on all of us.

Now if y’all’s households are anything like mine, you have one (or multiple) kids who love school and one (or multiple) kids who do NOT.  That said, I’m always looking for ways to incorporating learning for the kiddos that doesn’t feel forced or overly structured.  Basically, less like school and more like fun.

Playroom Organization and Makeover

Kids Playroom Makeover & Organization Ideas

Y’all this kids playroom organization and makeover project was looooong overdue in the Cantu household.  Imma be reaaaaaal honest with y’all and let you know that my breaking point was when I realized I was doing waaaaay more yelling at the kids to clean up their mess than I was actually making the mess WITH them!  I was fed up with spending my time cleaning (or begging them to clean) instead of being there, present, in the moment playing with them.  I’ve heard it, felt it, and know it, but sometimes I still need to remind myself….these little years are fleeting and I want nothing more than to enjoy these few years where they actually WANT me around! (I know those teenage years are just around the corner.)  I don’t want to look back and regret the time spent worrying about the mess instead of enjoying it!

Hang Family Photo From Art & Canvas Hangers

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!!)

Hearth and Hand with Magnolia new fall line

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 — August Week 3

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!!

Back To School Sales For The Whole Fam!

Hi Friends!

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!
