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...

Christmas Chalkboard Art

Having a chalkboard in your home is FABULOUS way to incorporate each holiday and season that comes around. From the minute we moved in to our house, I knew I wanted a large chalkboard in our foyer. Visions of little rabbits for Easter, hearts for Valentine's Day, and snowflakes for winter, were all in my head, and I couldn't wait to get "drawing." This year, my friend Kate came over, and while helping me prepare for my Favorite Things party, I looked at her and ever so gently asked, got down on my knees and BEGGED, her to create something beautiful...

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...

Fall Dining Room Table Decor

Fall is here. If you've been on my home tour, you know I'm a sucker for decorating, and snagging each new and upcoming design that Target has. Fall Dining Room Table Decor This Fall season, Target came out with a plaid line of plates, serve ware & linens. I'm not kidding when I say... I immediately got in my car, the moment I saw a snapshot of plaid plates and linens on TargetStyle's Instagram. A little black, a little white, and a little gold... paired together with a plaid design, and I was in hog heaven.  It was just the right about of "class,"...

Airbnb: Our New Way of Traveling

Oh goodness we love to travel. Although, back in 1999 when my husband and I started dating, I had barely left the state of Missouri. Now... you can't keep me home.  Well, I guess that's a lie.  I do love being a home body, but you can always bet that I'm at least planning our next trip. Within the last year, we've found a new way to travel & after a few test-runs, I feel safe recommending it to all of my fellow travel lovers out there.

The Before: “Business Home”

My husband and I recently closed on a second home with a couple of our business partners, and I couldn't WAIT to show you the "Before." Often times, the majority of business meetings are held within minutes of this location, and it became a no-brainer when the talk of possibly purchasing a "business home," in the area, came up. You see, the home will be occupied by men most of the time, with occasional meetings and small business client "get-togethers." {But there IS a Nordstrom Rack next door, so keeping the wives out of the home from time to time, may be a...

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. If you're new here, and you want to see the home tour from the beginning: START HERE! If you saw the first tour of his nursery, I admitted that I just reused his older brothers nursery decor.  And not that it's not ok... I was kind of getting sick of the old decor, and wanted to mix it up a little. When I was shopping at Hobby Lobby one day, I came across a section that had this "wilderness, native,...

Yeah, I'm a bit embarrassed to say this, but I'm finally adding another room to our home tour, after about a year of no home tour updates at all. I'm one of those, "perfectionist's," you know... that never feels like something is ready to reveal, because there's always something else I could add?  So I wait & wait, until I think it's ok to finally take photos, only to realize that it will NEVER be "done." When we moved in to our new home, I was due to have baby #2 in 2 weeks.  {Yes, we are crazy people.} I had struggled...

The “No Shower,” 10 Minute Beauty Routine & out the door

Perfect world?  That each and every day is planned out, on a pretty little schedule that makes my phone ding an hour before something is getting ready to happen. Put "real life," in to the mix, and a husband that is super crazy busy, running his own business... and you have, MY life. The other day, my hubby calls and says, "Hey, what do you think about meeting Mr. X this afternoon?" "Sure! Sounds great." "Ok babe, on my way, see you in 10 minutes." WHAAAAAAT!!!?  I had no idea that he meant like, RIGHT now!  I hadn't even showered yet.  This left me scramblin'. Let...
