Vintage Christmas Party

Oh how fun this Vintage Christmas party would have been.   Yes... I said, "Would have been." :( One of my kiddos came down with a fever a couple of days before our annual Santa Night Party this year.  Unfortunately, his little body can't handle fevers like some others can.  He's one of the not-so-lucky ones that suffer from febrile seizures.  The morning before our party date, he once again had a seizure, and once the craziness calmed down... I immediately sent out notifications to our friends, letting them know that we had to cancel the party for this year, so we...

Tips for Creating a Holiday Place Setting

This Holiday Place Setting post has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Coca-Cola. But... all opinions are mine alone, pinky promise! #SipsOfJoy #CollectiveBias Can you believe my husband and I have lived in our current home, OVER two years?  That's never happened.  If you've been on our home tour, then you know we move constantly.  We build, move-in, sell, repeat.  But for some reason we've hung on to this house a little longer than usual.  I have to think it's because of all the "thought," that we put in to the design of this one, so we can have the room...

Woodland Friends First Birthday Party

We had our sons, "Woodland Friends," first birthday party, and it was a real "hoot." {No pun intended.  Ok, maybe a little.} Considering this was my second kiddo's first birthday, I wanted to make sure that we did the same type of celebration for him, that we did for our oldest sons, first birthday.  {See that party here: Airplane First Birthday Party} So that meant inviting friends and family, extra sweets, and fun little "extras," to make it super special. {That you'll see below} Woodland Friends Party When I decided on the Woodland Friends party theme, I knew that I better start off contacting someone...

My Recent Trip to Target-Feeding the Addiction

My trips to Target are getting better.  Better?  Well by "better," I mean that I don't spend as much as I used to.  Possibly, it's because I go more often than I used to, rather than going twice a year, and feeling like I have to redecorate my entire house in that one trip.  :) {To my hubby: I promise I never do that.}  ;) You all seem to LOVE when I talk about my finds at Target, so I thought this time I'd just show you what my shopping bags coughed up when I got home. Yes, I love entertaining.  Didn't know...

Home Tour Part 9 – Baby Nursery

I'm SO excited that I'm finally getting around to continuing the home tour.  Life kinda happened, and I took a short pause in decorating the rooms.  The nursery however, REALLY didn't take up too much of my time.  I kept it very simple, (some may say "bare,") but that's ok with me.  Less is more, right?  Let's get started... I sinned. Yep.  Go ahead, roll your eyes at me... tell me I'm a horrible mommy... What did I do?  I re-used the nursery décor from my first baby to decorate my new baby's room.  Eeeeek!  Well heck, let me tell you why.  One, I...

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...
