• COLOR-LOVER

    If you know me at all, you know that I have always been a huge color-lover!! For a few years in my early twenties, I didn’t buy as many clothes with a bunch of different colors and patterns. I stuck to more neutrals… until I finally realized that neutral just doesn’t fit me! I am a color-lover through and through! Neutrals don’t give me any kind of sparkle, they don’t fire me up and make me happy like colorful patterns and different textures do! And yes, I still wear black and other neutral colors, but I definitely am drawn to colors way more! So, instead of trying to blend in and buy neutral clothing, I was like, “Who cares?! This is me and I’m fine with that!” It was so freeing when I made this choice to just go with what I love, instead of wearing what everyone else was wearing! You don’t know how many times, when I was in school I would try an outfit on before bed and lay it out for morning… and then in the morning I would chicken out to wear it. On went the jeans and t-shirt instead. Why?! Lack of confidence I suppose… but man does it feel GOOD when you are comfortable to wear whatever you like, and not worry about if someone else will like it or not!

    My love of color is not just in my clothing, it’s in everything in my life. I LOVE colorful home decor! So, I thought I would put up some pictures of some color that is peppered throughout my house! Every time I see a pretty spot in my house with a bunch of fun colors, it is sure to bring a smile to my face! I can’t wait to share some room reveals with you guys- the only thing is, I have a bunch of rooms in my house that are like 85% finished… So, with that being said, I have a question for you guys and I would absolutely LOVE it if you would help me out here! I am trying to figure out which room I should get done first! So the big question for you is:

    1. the kids bedroom (needs headboard for Vernon, trim touched up, windows painted, some shelving and decor)
    2. the upstairs bathroom (still needs a vanity, paint, trim and decor)
    3. the downstairs bathroom (mostly finished, have to touch up some paint and caulk)

    I have a bunch of things for these rooms already, just need to paint certain pieces or revamp them in some way. I do need to buy a few things too! So, what do you guys think? Tell me which room you would be MOST excited to see me post on here next! Thank you for your help! I’m excited to see what you guys pick, so I can get started on it!! Have a happy Monday everyone!

  • SNOWY THROWBACK

    We still have snow sooooo.. I had to post some snowy pics from a couple years ago! Hope it’s not too early for all these snow pics! Haha!

    The other day I was watching some Pentatonix Christmas music videos on Youtube and I forgot how talented they are!! Seriously- how do they make all that music with no instruments?! It blows my mind! I love their Christmas songs, they are so pretty I honestly get emotional listening to some of them because they are so beautiful!

    I went to the gym again this morning and it feels so, so good! I’m so excited to get back into the groove of working out again!

    Hope you all have a great day!

  • SEASHELL CHAIR

    Hello! I am so excited to share these pics of my favorite chair with you today!! I have always called it my seashell chair because of the channel back and the pink color of the fabric. I have had this chair for a very long time, and I always intended to reupholster it. Well… I never got around to it, so recently I had it done at an upholstery shop. I am so pumped with the way it turned out! Can you believe it’s the same chair?! It looks so pretty in my living room! Now I have the bug to have more of my furniture done, but I think I am going to attempt a couple pieces on my own and I’ll share them with you when they are finished!

    If you have ever had any cool furniture reupholstered I would love to see it! #oldfurnitureisbetterthannew

  • WINTER IS HERE!

    Happy winter!! When the snow started falling yesterday, Vernon (my 3 year old) said, “YAY! IT’S WINTER!!” I love our winters, although at times they can get long so I always hope for a really long and beautiful fall. We had an absolutely gorgeous fall this year, and now I feel like I’m ready for the snow.. although it’s probably not here to stay quite yet! All this snow makes me feel so cozy- think a mug of hot chocolate, wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket and listening to Christmas music! Yes, we have had the Christmas tunes on already! Vernon keeps asking if it’s Christmas yet?

    Vernon is pretty excited for Halloween, he loves to run around all day in his costume! We bought a little spider web with spiders the other day and we have some mini pumpkins on the table… that’s about the extent of our decor this year. I would love to go all out decorating for the holidays, but we have had a super busy fall so maybe next year! I have loved to decorate since I was really young. I was always the one making decorations out of construction paper and taping them to the windows.. I’m sure they looked beautiful! 😉 I always feel so excited with the holidays- must just be the inner-kid in me!

    Two days ago I signed up for a gym membership and have gone 3 days in a row! It feels so amazing to get back into it, and I am super sore! It was a cardio day for me today. I did an interval workout on the treadmill- I forgot how challenging those are!! I love them because I feel like the time goes by a lot faster than if you’re just running one pace the whole time! It’s good to mix it up too!

    Happy Saturday everyone!
