After moving in to our home three years ago, the garage is finally in a place that I'm excited enough to share as part of our home tour!  The garage can tend to be a "drop zone," for just about anything in our life, which can result in a DISASTER when it comes to organization and leaving room to park our cars.  But when we my husband became motivated to get our garage under control, there was no stopping him, and the garage finally...

Part 16 Home Tour: Office Makeover Reveal

It's almost as if there's a feeling of "Now what?" as I reveal my home office makeover.  Why?  Because I've been teasing promising you for so long, that I'd have it done soon, and it seemed as if I kept finding ONE more thing that would just look PERFECT for the office, so I needed to wait one more week before the photo shoot.I'm happy to say, I finally found that "ahhhh," moment, and decided it was time to reveal.  (You know, the day after my new white Keurig came in the mail.  I had to wait for that...

No... I'm not pregnant.  I just called this post the "New," Nursery Home Tour because I finally, finally, finally... redecorated my son's nursery.
