Home Tour Part 2 – Master Bedroom

  Yesterday I shared "Part 1 of our Home Tour" with the photos of the exterior of our house. {See that post here: Home Tour Part 1: The Exterior} Well welcome to "Part 2, Our Master Bedroom." I knew when we built the new house, I wanted to keep the duvet cover that we were already using {because I LOVE it so, but also because I'm a tightwad and didn't want to spend money on a new one.} ;) I did however, want to add some "mmff" to the bedding by adding some pillows. I knew I wanted to keep it pretty...

Home Tour Part 1- The Exterior

I shared our "construction process" with you all when we were just finishing up our house {see that post here: "Wrapping up Our New Home Construction."} Well, I promised you all a tour when it was completed, and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll EVER feel like it's completed enough to show. So... I thought, "Why not go ahead! I can always add more later." So here we go: Exterior Update: We've finally added shutters to our house! We are still planning to stain the shutters {stain color TBD}, but I couldn't wait to share with you the new look! Only two years...

Our Holiday Home Tour

Ahhhh Christmas time! I'll be honest... I'm not a Grinch, but in years past when Christmas time would roll around, I'd get my fill of seeing Christmas decorations up at everyone else's home. I had no desire to decorate, only because I would stare at it for a month and think about how I had to take it all down in 30 days. Anyone with me? Well, this year it was a little different. We moved in to a new home, and my husband was asked by a friend if we would participate in a local charity benefit that involved opening...

Fireplace Christmas Mantel Decorations

If you saw my 2013 Christmas Home tour, you may have already seen my fireplace mantel Christmas decorations. They are by FAR my most favorite thing to put up when Christmas time comes around. I had always admired everyone's mantels, and couldn't wait to have one of my own to decorate one day for Christmas. Why Christmas time, rather than all year long? Totally because I get to hang stockings on the mantel! In case Pinterest brought you here, and you want to see the details of my fireplace mantel Christmas decorations, let me explain the goods: Far left picture frame: IKEA...

Car Organization Ideas

I can't BEGIN to tell you how many times this little car organization project has come to my rescue. While browsing Pinterest one day, I ran across a lady who did something like this in her minivan, and I fell in LOVE with the idea. I have to admit, I'm EXTREMELY jealous of her space that she has in her minivan, and what she had to work with. Although I do drive the longest SUV they make, a minivan tends to just have more car organization capabilities and cooler features. Anyhoo, I...

Wrapping Up Our New Home Construction {Part 1}

I'm so fortunate to be married to someone that is so talented in new home construction. We've been married for 5 years {together for 15}, and we've never built a home to call "ours." We've always built a spec home, moved in, and moved out as soon as someone bought it. So to move in to a home that doesn't have a "For Sale," sign in the yard... well... I just don't know what that will feel like! Baby #2 is due any day, and we are down to the wire on this house. Normally, I wouldn't care so much...
