Turning a Formal Living into a BOARD GAME ROOM!

The most anticipated post of the year! Ha ha just kidding. But it's an exciting day none the less. Today I'm FINALLY, after months of alluding to, sharing our Board Game Room renovation. We turned our Formal Living Room into a designated Board Game Room where we come together with friends and family, multiple times a week, to play board games. Yes, we are huge board game nerds. We've always loved playing games so a designated room seemed appropriate for our family. Ben loves board games so much he even has a board game youtube channel (which is pretty great in my opinion!). It's called … [Read more...]

One of the craziest things I’ve ever done – I pierced my nose!

I just did one of the craziest things I've ever done - I pierced my nose! I still can't believe I actually went through with it. I've wanted to pierce my nose for years. I've talked about it for so many years that I'm pretty much the girl who cried wolf. In fact, way back in 2015 I posted on Instagram and Facebook that I wanted to pierce my nose. I found a temporary sticky stud, put it on my nose, and asked you guys what you thought: Instagram post // Facebook post Almost everyone was incredibly supportive and told me to go do it. Well, I chickened out. It took me almost 3 more … [Read more...]

My trip to Magnolia Market at The Silos

I am finally home from our road trip to Austin, Texas! We are originally from Austin, so we go back occasionally to see family and friends. During this trip back "home" I finally made the trek to Waco to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos. Yes, it was amazing. No, I didn't meet Chip and Joanna. I went with my sister and one of my besties, Beth. She used to blog at Free Stylin' so if you've been reading House of Hepworths for a long time, you might remember her. Here's my sister Lindsey and me: And here's Beth and me: You can see the silos for several blocks as you pull … [Read more...]

Our friends PRANKED our house while we were on vacation || best prank ever!

We were recently pranked so good by some of our friends that I am still laughing about it. Seriously, this is the prank to end all pranks. We have some pretty awesome friends. Our family went on a quick getaway to San Francisco a few weeks ago and when we got home at almost 1am we walked into this: I'm sure you are thinking, "What in the heck am I looking at? What on earth is that?" Let me start from the beginning... Our son is in Percussion at high school. He is part of an Indoor Drumline. That's him on the far left with a tan beanie on. … [Read more...]

How I lost 35 lbs eating keto / low carb (and how you can too!)

The past year I've been eating a low carb diet. I loosely follow a specific diet called the Ketogenic Diet, or Keto diet. I've managed to lose around 35 pounds so far! I went from my high weight of 194 lbs and a size 14 to about 160 lbs and a size 6/8. I've been in maintenance mode for about 5 months now. I fluctuate between 157 and 164. I've posted about this a few times on Instagram and I get so much engagement from those posts with you guys begging me to give you more details.    via/via I will try to give you a good overview of my diet and how it has worked for … [Read more...]

Life-sized STAR WARS balloons! Coolest balloons ever!

Happy Birthday, Ben! Ben celebrated the big 4-0 on May 4th! Yup, Star Wars day. May the forth be with you. hehe When I went to party city to purchase some fun decorations for a party for him, I stumbled upon the BEST decorations ever - JUMBO STAR WARS BALLOONS. I seriously squealed out loud. I mean, I've literally never seen jumbo balloons like this before. Maybe I live in under a rock, but seeing these balloons made me so excited. They are huge! I couldn't decide between the Stormtrooper or R2D2 so I splurged and bought both. They were a huge hit! We had these balloons hanging … [Read more...]

How to remove stickers the easy way

You guys. This is such a simple tip, but not many people know about it. But before I get down to business and share this super simple tip with you, I have to give a shout out to Wal-mart of all places for stocking the CUTEST galvanized containers. Seriously, they have tons of different bins, trays, containers, etc and they are all the oh-so-hot galvanized metal. Rumor has it (I haven't verified with my own eyeballs) that this stuff is now on CLEARANCE. I better get up there and buy some more before they're all gone. You can use these containers in virtually every room in your house for … [Read more...]
