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!!)
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!
I’ve been promising y’all forever that I was going to start a blog series on parties, events, and cake decorating! Well, finally, here it is!! Part 1!! If you guys follow me on Instagram, then you probably already know that we (my mom, MIL and me) just made my daughter THE COOLEST two-tiered unicorn cake for her 6th birthday. The amazing response I got after sharing that cake is what finally made me sit down & start this series!! So THANK Y’ALL!!!
I’m so excited to share with you guys over the next few weeks, some of the parties me, my mom, and my sister have hosted together and/or for each other, and for our littles over the last 5+ years! I hope y’all enjoy!!
Any of you guys already planning (or trying to plan) your holiday outfits?? 🙋🏻🙋🏻 My excuse is that I’m traveling for the holidays so I’ll have to plan & pack in advance. 😆
But even if that weren’t the case, I’m sure I’d still be franticly searching Pinterest for ideas. Lol. I do it every year!
I noticed, while exercising my thumbs on the Pinterest search page, however, that most of what I was finding was a little too dressy for what I’m going for. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good sequins skirt as much as the next girl, but for our family Christmas, I thought that might be a bit much.
So…I thought some of you might be in that same pickle; looking for some holiday outfit inspo that’s a little more casual, still cute, and can be dressed up or down depending on your choice of accessories. So, if that’s you, then read on Sister! Continue reading
So, as I’m sure you know, over the past few weeks I’ve shared a few holiday round ups from some of our FAVE budget friendly places to shop. Well, as much as I LOVE those retailers, I also wanted to put something together for y’all that might be a little more “gift giving friendly”. Not that giving (or getting) gifts from Target isn’t fabulous, BECAUSE IT IS!!! But I know sometimes, for Christmas we try & step up our game a little bit for certain people in our lives (Moms, Mother in Laws, Best Friends, Sisters, Grandmothers, Favorite Aunts, etc.)
Ask & you shall receive!!
You guys wanted me to do a quick round-up while Old Navy was having their HUGE 50% off sale! So I’ve gathered my faves here in this post for y’all! I’ve even included mens & kids items too! Happy Shopping Friends!!
Ask and you shall receive!! So many of you guys shared some AWESOME ideas with me through Instagram on how to get creative with stuffing Easter eggs! Way to go you out-of-the-box thinkers!!
The ideas were so good that I just had to do a blog post so all of y’all could read them too! I’m also gonna give you guys some fun & unique ways to do the hunt itself! Oh, AND some cool ways to make the hunt more challenging for the older kids! So let’s HOP to it! (Get it? 😉)
Can I tell you guys a little secret….?
I’m in total awe & admiration of my Instagram pals, bloggers, etc. who have done a flawless job of not just sharing their beautiful homes with us, but also their beautiful ( and not so flawless) lives. I can’t explain what it is, but there is something so real and raw about it.
I think so many of us started off just sharing our home as a way to inspire creativity and provide encouragement for others. The reality is, though, “home” is one of the most personal & emotional places we’ll ever go.
