Home Tour Part 17 – The Garage

This post brought to you by Chamberlain. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Fantabulosity. 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...

Front Porch Living: Our Craftsman Home

Front Porch Craftsman Home: It only took us two years to get our front porch ready for company, and now I'm ready to share it all with you! Grab a glass of sweet tea, and join us... I've been keeping you all posted on Facebook and Instagram, about our patio furniture updates.  I've shopped and shopped for the perfect furniture, (all while being cost-conscious, which is why it probably took me so stinking long), and I'm finally ready to share the front porch with you all.  (Still waiting on the back patio furniture to arrive, but I hear it will arrive in...

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,"...

The Guest Bedroom Tour So I'm not completely sure what you'd call this theme.  To be honest, I've been holding out for a white duvet cover, and looking for different decor for the desk. But...

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...

I'll Admit: My husband and I have been considering putting this house up for sale, and building on another lot that we own.  (For no other reason than... it's just what we do.  We have moved 5 times in the last 3 years, living in this house for 2 of those... and that's the longest we've ever lived in one.  So we are starting...

Home Tour Part 12: The NEW Nursery

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...

I'm all about good finds.  Ok ok... fantabulous finds.  There's nothing better than finding something that you can no longer live without, and being able to share it with the world.  Besides... what would be fun about keeping it to yourself? It all started when I was scrolling through my Facebook Newsfeed, and I saw a post from a photographer that I follow... showing GORGEOUS gals, with "flawless," looks.  I was immediately on a mission.  I had to find out how to make myself that beautiful, like... right. now.  It didn't take long until I got my answer, and I...

I sinned. Yep.  Go ahead, roll your eyes at me... tell me I'm a horrible mommy...
