    Outdoor Inspiration

    As of right now we only have a back deck but one day we want to extend the deck out and down another level and then add a patio off of that. This will take awhile for us to actually do so for now I’m just dreaming and going to share with you what would be my ideal outdoor items! This outdoor table is everything!!

    Juice Cleanse Review

    Bikini season is quickly approaching and I have never felt more unprepared for it! Being in the real world and not having a spring break didn’t help because that usually was my motivation to get rid of that winter fluff. (Who else thinks that the corporate world needs a dedicated week of spring break?!) To get my butt back into gear I decided to increase the intensity of my workouts and switch things up. I haven’t been eating well lately so I decided it was time to get that back on track because we’ve all heard it…..”abs are made in the kitchen” and “you can’t out train a bad diet”.…

    Weekend Projects

    Who else LOVES home projects!? Don’t get me wrong, I love relaxing weekends but I also love tackling things. Plus our project list grows everyday so we kind of have lots we want to get done. We finally had a free weekend to complete one of our projects so we headed to Lowe’s. At first we were going just for paint but we all know you usually never leave with JUST what you went in for…. We ended up leaving with paint for the laundry room, yard stuff, and tiki torches for the back porch. I finally put out the chairs we got for Christmas around our outdoor table and…

    Deck the Halls with Lots of Shiplap

    If you’re a Fixer Upper fan then you probably have some sort of obsession with shiplap. I have dreamed of having shiplap in my house since before we even started looking at houses and if you’re anything like me you love DIY projects and doing things for half the price. Our house has the perfect brick fireplace. It was the first thing I painted white when we moved in. I was obsessed with how the fireplace turned out but I also knew I wanted to put shiplap on the sides to brighten up the room even more. Our house is kind of dark because of the wood trim, dark floors,…

    My Fall Decor

    It’s one of my favorite times of year, behind Christmas of course. But I LOVE fall! Especially decorating for it. I’ve had so much fun buying new fall decor especially now that they are making fall decor in neutral colors and my favorite color: teal/blue! Almost everything in our house is neutral with pops of blue/green and teal things. I was so excited when I found these $1 velvet pumpkins at Target that were in my colors because I’m just not digging the traditional orange pumpkins with my other decor. If you haven’t gotten your hands on some of these pumpkins you need to RUN….not walk to Target! I cleared…
