Adri’s ah-freaking-mazing nursery makeover [Guest Post]

I have a treat for you guys this weekend! Dream Book Design is here to share her ah-freaking-mazing nursery makeover with y'all. And I know reading "guest posts" on blogs is kinda annoying, but trust me, this reveal is worth it. I have been a fan of Adri's since the very first time I ever clicked over to her blog. She won me over with her card catalog makeover that seriously rocked it hard core around blogland: Adri and I have since become friends and I just really want to share how freaking fabulous and talented she is. Enough of me blathering on... let's hear it from her. Hello … [Read more...]

Sorting all those LEGO instruction booklets

Are you a Lego mama? I am. My son has tons of Legos. Like, bucket-loads. I've spent time setting up a pretty sweet containment system for all the chaos, but those instruction booklets? Aye yai yai. I swear, my friends, Legos will be the death of me! So, for like 8 years I have saved the Lego instruction books from the grips of a little boy who would otherwise completely destroy them. He is finally old enough that I have relinquished my iron grip on these very expensive little books and allowed him to keep them. The booklets have been stored in a plastic container with a lid. They have … [Read more...]

Hookin Up with HoH #140

Hi my friends!! I am packing like a mad woman trying to get ready for my little weekend getaway with some of my favorite blogger friends at the Blissdom Conference. If you want to get in on the conference action, just follow along with me on instagram. I'll be posting fun photos all weekend. I leave tomorrow morning to carpool mini-van style with Jessica, and Jamie. I cannot wait for the road trip to Dallas - about 3 hours north of where I live in Austin. I think I'm even more excited about the road trip than the conference. haha. I love me a good road trip; especially if it's a carload of … [Read more...]

Totally awesome HUGE mirror made from shims (DIY mirror project)

How many projects have you pinned and actually followed through and finished? I can probably count on one hand how many projects on my Pinterest to-do list I've actually done. Well I'm here to report I actually followed through and made a project I pinned on pinterest. I am as shocked as you. My friend Kristi from Addicted 2 Decorating made the most awesome mirror almost TWO years ago. And almost two years ago I pinned that sucker so quick. I just had to make one. It only took almost two years, but I've made the mirror and I'm thrilled to bits about it. Here's my HUGE 4-foot in diameter … [Read more...]

Cleanup on isle 1 (the fence and side yard post)

Last week I shared how we replaced our fence on the side of our house. As you can see from the before and after photo, we did a little bit of yard cleanup in front of the fence. We took out a box hedge and smoothed all the dirt out flat in preparation for some new sod. Well, that yard cleanup is only a small amont of cleanup that we actually did over here. Behind the fence was an absolute nightmare. Here is the side yard behind the fence when we moved in over two and a half years ago: It wasn't that bad, but there was a huge pile of random rocks and a bunch of metal … [Read more...]
