Being a new homeowner is really exciting, yet incredibly exhausting (especially if you're pregnant like me). When you're buying housewarming gifts for new homeowners, it's important that you really think about the recipients. Don't give them something only you would like, but something they would find useful for their new
A newlywed, new homeowner, and mom-to-be: that would make for a great reality TV show, but instead – it's my life right now! Here's my quick story on my husband & I becoming new homeowners only months after getting married (while 8 months pregnant), with an exciting new blog series

Hello my pretties! I hope you've had a successful journey thus far. Decluttering your life isn't easy. We all struggle with different areas. This week, my mental declutter has been the most successful. I've reached a good mental state in regards to my career path. Owning your own business can be very
I'm sure you've never heard cleaning and fun in the same sentence before. At least not in my house. I don't mind admitting that I hate to clean. I love being in a clean home, but cleaning isn't my strong suit. I guess my hate for cleaning makes me a little more creative while doing these dreaded tasks. I do whatever I can to trick myself into thinking it's fun. I know it sounds silly, but I swear it works. Especially with a new device I'm come across.
We're pet parents. That means we've adopted a furry little creature (or a few) and made our home – their home. If you're anything like me, you let them get away with just about anything. You definitely allow them to get away with more than your children do. I let my
I'm sure we've all wished for an effective DIY love potion in our lifetime. This year – I'm no longer wishing for it. I am making it happen! Every year, I try to come up with an easy handmade Valentine's Day gift for my boyfriend. This time around, I wanted something more
The smell of pine always awakens my happiest memories. I think of the years that I went searching for the perfect Christmas tree. I still remember when I decided that an artificial tree would replace the real thing. It's much easier in Florida, when all of the real trees are overpriced
I am the ultimate bargain shopper. I don't commit to a purchase until I've researched, shopped around, and researched some more. This is something that's instilled into you when you live paycheck-to-paycheck as a child. The reason that I live comfortably now is because I use sites, like Bootler, to find the best deals.
I'm kinda of obsessed with pineapples. Not only are they sweet and delicious, they are super cute. There's something about pineapple decor and patterns that I'm obsessed with. Maybe I like to pretend I'm living in a tropical paradise with all this pineapple decor. Don't judge me – after you see these fun items, you'll be searching for pineapples too.
My favorite season is here. My only wish is that the Florida actually knew it was Autumn. Some cool weather and colorful leaves would be nice. We don't have actual season here in Florida, but as soon as September hits I begin to celebrate Autumn within my home. I mean, it's crazy how a few changes in your home can change the way you feel. Basically, we don't know it's fall until the I change a few things in my home. I figured that I can't be the only one, so I'm sharing my ideas with you. Enjoy!
My idea of a perfect reading nook revolves around comfort. I wanted big pillows, soft blankets, and of course, really good books. I don't exactly have a location in my home that's free. So I decided to build my reading nook in a corner of a bed and a wall in our guest room. It's in a location that doesn't have much traffic, but can be removed quickly when we need the space.
Have you ever walked into your bedroom and thought, "This room is a mess" only to make the bed and realize that's all it took to make your entire room look different? My point is that sometimes all it takes is the simplest touch to completely change the look of a room – a chandelier, an accent table, a fresh coat of paint, even a picture on the wall. Transforming a room doesn't have to be difficult and it doesn't have to be expensive. Let me explain.
I'm always gawking over different ways to display my photos. I have picture frames, canvases, digital frames, and even a metal photo canvas. This is the first time I've ever come across glass photos - yes, real glass.
Have you watched The Choice? It's one of the most romantic movies that I've watched in quite awhile. It's no surprise, though. I mean, it was written by Nicholas Sparks, the biggest hopeless romantic in the world. The movie takes place in the country, by a big beautiful lake. The homes in the movie have a very country feel to them. You'll notice a beautiful wind chime in the movie. It's made of sea shells and compliments the home well. As inspired by the film, I have a super fun wind chime tutorial for you. This one is made with sea glass, as you may have seen Travis fiddling with at some point in the film. I hope that you enjoy making your windchime just as much as I did.
What comes to mind when you think of Precious Moments? I automatically think of their trademark teardrop eyes. Maybe you'd look at this birdbath and wonder how it fits into the Precious Moments brand. It's definitely a non-traditional figurine. Well, if you look very closely, you will see the sweet tear-shaped eyes on each little bird. It's the little things that make Precious Moments a reliable and fun brand.

I've decided to completely redo my guest room. I want our guests to feel comfortable and excited when they stay at our house. I also want the experience to be memorable. If they don't walk away thinking, "Wow! That room was like no other," then we aren't doing something right. I've always loved bright colors, but I've always settled for neutrals in my home. With my guest room, I decided to experiment with colors and I love how it turned out. Hopefully, I can give you some ideas!
Have you started the dreadful task of spring cleaning? I've started, but it still feels like I haven't made any sort of impact. The most frustrating part of tackling my spring cleaning is working with products that don't actually... work. I'm sure that we've all been there before. You get sucked into an infomercial, spend more than you'd like to admit, and then end of with a product that doesn't magically make the mess disappear. It's embarrassing, discouraging, and frankly, a waste of time.
