Hi friend! Yesterday’s Tuesday kinda felt like a Monday since my kids just went back to school! And I’ve been loving getting outside and walking/jogging lately. Houston’s weather has been so good, lots of sunshine and not too humid. I know that’s coming so I’m mentally preparing!
JUST (THE BEST) SALES
Every Wednesday, I scour the internet to bring you great deals on things you might love, want, or need. Here’s what I found this week!
Hi friend! We’re almost to the weekend! Yay for that! Our weather can’t seem to make up its mind lately, it was sunny and warm last weekend, and now it’s rainy and super cold. Kinda just makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good book!
For the past few years, I’ve been working on minimizing and styling our home in a way that feels fresh and clean, yet still inviting and cozy. One thing I love incorporating into our home decor is coffee table books. I like the character and charm they add, while providing useful reading material.
Hi friend! I’m so happy to have the first home decor project of the new year done! This mudroom makeover is a project I’ve had on my mind for a long time now, and it was relatively painless to accomplish since I hired out most of the heavy lifting.
I’ll give you a quick look at the glorious ‘after’ here, then I’ll show you the before and walk you through the process of how we transformed the space from cluttered to calm.
New year, new home refresh! I love playing around with styling things in my home and also seeing what’s new in the stores. I like to get inspiration by browsing in the store and online and also thinking about how I can move existing things around in my house to create a fresh look.
In today’s post, I’m sharing how I’ve been restyling the spaces in my home. There’s some new shelf styling in the living room and kitchen, I changed out the decor on my coffee table and foyer, and switched up things in the sitting room.
Good morning friend! Happy Friday! I’m super excited to welcome you into our wintery, Christmas home this year!
I always start decorating early because it takes me a long time to settle in and call it done. I’m actually still not there yet, but I wanted to at least give you a peek at what I’ve done so far on the first floor.
Hopefully, this gives you some holiday decor inspiration for your own home and if there’s something you’d like to add to your home I tried my best to link everything for you so you could easily find it online.
Hi friend! Thanks for stopping by and spending part of your day with me! This week is already shaping up to be another busy one with 4 soccer games, a practice, a Gala event on Thursday, a trip to Dewberry Farms this weekend and a work event with Brian.
These next couple of months are always packed with fun things, but I always have to make sure I plan in rest time or I get exhausted. Are you like that too?
FALL HOME TOUR
I’m excited to welcome you into our home today for a Fall home tour!
Hi friend! Can you believe we’re nearly halfway through October already? I really love this time of year and the change of seasons is so welcomed after a brutally hot summer. Houston is supposed to be getting a cool front this weekend and we are so excited for it! Bring on the jeans, booties and sweaters!
I’ve been showing you bits of my Fall decor and today I’m inviting you into our dining room! I’ve decked the table out for Fall, and it may just stay this way for Thanksgiving.
Everything on my table is from Walmart and I had fun choosing pieces that are both beautiful and functional.
Hi friend! I’m loving this time of year when Spring starts turning to Fall. Although it’s still pretty hot here, I can feel that Fall is in the air with the familiar routine of back to school, sports starting again and the return of pumpkin spice everything. Last night it was downright pleasant outside!
Slowly but surely I’ve been adding some Fall decor touches to our home and I’m loving how it’s warming things up! Today, I’m partnering with Walmart and I can’t wait to share some new decor I added to my house recently.
Hi friend! Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be heading to the camp with Brian and several other couples this weekend. His company has a property in South Texas and it’s a wonderful, outdoor getaway with several private rooms, a small lake, game room, and swimming pool. We’ll go fishing while we’re there and one of the biggest perks is that there’s a chef that prepares all the meals. How dreamy is that?!
This week was a heavy one and I’m really looking forward to unplugging and spending time in nature.
Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I was a busy little bee doing lots of home cleaning, organizing and getting the backyard patio spruced up.
We love spending time out here, but it requires some cleaning and maintenance to keep it enjoyable. I started adding a weekly wipe down of the patio furniture and my 11-year-old son helps with that. We went a step further and power washed the furniture this weekend and that was so satisfying!
Hi friends! Welcome back to my blog and here’s to a fresh, new week! We just got back from Florida yesterday and I’m exhausted in the best way. It was such a great getaway and I can’t remember the last time I saw such clear water and white, sandy beaches. Our weather started out rainy, but ended up gloriously sunny and warm. I’ll be working on a trip recap to share with you soon. In the meantime, I did share some pics on my Instagram. 🙂
But first, it’s all those after-vacay things that need to be done like grocery shopping and meal prep.
Hi friends! Happy Monday! I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! I kicked off the weekend with a fun couples date night with Ali-Shaun and Rhonda and their husband’s. We’ve been trying to get this date on the books for what feels like forever, and we finally made it happen! When you’re jugging work, kids, sports and school, sometimes you gotta just book things in advance and wait for the date to get here!
Also, we wanted to get the girls together for lunch recently, but decided to order in and eat at my house. That made it much more convenient since we all live close and didn’t have to drive to a restaurant.
Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and even better Mother’s Day. We spent the day in Galveston at the beach with my family (and Brian!) and it was so fun to have everyone together. We are a small, but super tight group and I love watching the kids grow up together. ♥
James loves hanging out with his two girl cousins that are his age and Jordan’s little BFF is her cousin CJ, who’s 6 months younger. They are two peas in a pod and I can’t get enough of their cuteness!
Hi friends! How is your week going? Are you still in vacay mode or getting things done? I’m a mix of both. I’m getting things done, but in a relaxed, non-frazzled way if that makes sense. I’ve started taking down my decor and Brian helped me get the big tree down last night.
Part of what has really helped me slow down more is continuing to get rid of things in our home so that we have empty spaces, clear counters and surfaces, and less ‘inventory’ to maintain and take care of.
I’m on a minimizing journey and have made great strides in the last six months especially.
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Yesterday, I had an early 6am workout, which made for a very productive Monday! I also shared my October Loves, so be sure you’re subscribed to my blog for a chance to win everything!
We’re officially in Fall mode, and I’m looking forward to baking, trying new recipes, family gatherings, and Fall decor.
It’s beginning to look like Fall on my front porch! I hung my Fall wreaths on the front door and added pumpkins in all sizes and colors.
Hi friends! Happy almost Friday! How’s your week going? Today is a fun day – two of my favorite people were born today!
Brian and my longtime (25 years and counting) friend Maggie! So funny that they share the same birthday! I guess I like Virgos -my Mom is one too.:) We’re taking Maggie out to lunch at Perry’s Steakhouse today, and then we’re having a special dinner for Brian with his sister and her husband. It’ll be my first time meeting them, so fingers crossed it goes well! What should I wear?!
I’ve started sprinkling Fall decor around my house and it’s gotten me so in the mood for all things Fall and cozy!
Good morning Monday! Welcome back to my blog! I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! Ours was nice and slow with lots of rain.
On Sunday, Jordan and I surprised James with breakfast in bed- just pancakes and strawberries, but it felt special all spread out on a tray and delivered to the bedroom. Jordan loves to help me in the kitchen. She put on her little apron and uses her kids safety knives to cut the tops off the strawberries. I think it makes her feel so good to be helpful and it’s something we can do together while she learns.
Good morning friends and welcome back to my blog! I’m so glad you’re here! I’ve mentioned here and there how I’ve been working on sprucing up the landscape around my house and now it’s complete! It’s nothing fancy, but it looks so much better than before.
Today, I’ll share the before with you and walk you through what we’ve done. My landscaper, Jose Hoyos, has become someone I really enjoy talking with and we have great conversations about life and families every time he visits. I love supporting his small business and I’d happily recommend him if you’re in the Houston area.
