Delivery Driver Porch Snacks {Free Printable}

It's that time of year again! At approximately 5:59 pm tomorrow night, let the holiday shopping season commence. If the thought of battling it out with the Black Friday crowds makes you want to curl up in a ball and cry, then you're probably an online shopper like me. That means one thing-- tons of cardboard boxes are headed our way very soon, delivered not by reindeer, but actual hard-working people in big box trucks or folks with steering wheels on the wrong side of their cars. Last year … [Read more...]

The Basement Man-Office is Complete

Remember our ugly basement makeover? Well, I'm finally getting around to sharing the basement decor with you today. This room has been completed for a long while now, but I'm a bad blogger who doesn't get around to posting things in a timely manner. Forgive me? This is the room we created for my husband's office space on the days he works from home. We found this awesome Ralph Lauren desk on sale at Homegoods a while back while searching for a new dining room table. I bought it … [Read more...]

How to refinish an old wooden deck

Our back deck had seen better days. The wood was not rotting, but it was SO weathered and cracked that Caroline couldn't walk across it without getting splinters all in her sweet little feet.  This was a big issue for my anti-shoe-wearing, barefoot-loving little girl. She loves running around outside barefoot and playing in the hose, so we had to do something about all the splintered wood ASAP. It's been on the never-ending to-do list to try to refinish the back porch for a while now, … [Read more...]

Tales of Painted Basement Ceilings and Pole Dancing Woes

When we sold our old house, one of the things we were most sad to leave behind was our finished basement.  We put in so much work to make that basement beautiful, so it really hurt to give it up. The movie room with all that amazing molding and those gorgeous cabinets?? I was sad to leave them behind. Click here to tour the basement in the old house. BUT... our new house had a large unfinished basement space that we knew we could make functional for our family. We knew going into this … [Read more...]

Like a Room without a Roof {Spring Home Tour}

Welcome to the middle of March! Can y'all even believe we are already 3 months into 2017?  The flowers are blooming, clocks have sprung forward and there's like three feet of snow on the ground in New England right now.  Here in Alabama, though, all signs point to SPRING up in hurrr, which is just fine by me. My bones need some sunshine and warmth again. Today I'm joining a few of my most talented blog friends along with our co-hosts Homegoods and Country … [Read more...]

The Attic Book Nook

When I was a little girl I was a voracious reader. I read every book that I could get my hands on, staying up late into the night curled up under the covers with a flashlight shining between the pages.  These days I still curl up under the covers with a book, but the light shines out from the Kindle app on my iPhone screen, much to my husband's dismay. I'm happy to say that my love of books has been handed down to the next generation.  My 9 year old, Garrett, devours books as much as I ever … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by Hobby Lobby. All opinions, as usual, are my own.  Hey guys!   Did you hear that really loud squeal this past weekend?
