Our half bathroom downstairs, which is the main guest bathroom of the house, has gone through a lot of changes since we first purchased our home in December 2015. You can see some of the renovations on our Update Bathroom Faucet with Spray Paint post from last March. From changing the paint on the walls and the faucet—you’ve got to click that link to know what I’m talking about—to adding fresh hardware from other projects, changing switch plates and the whole works, this bathroom just needed one more thing to kick it into full farmhouse gear. The key to completing the half bath remodel venture was our Copper Mason Jar Bathroom Light Fixture, revamped right here at home in our own backyard. Read More
This summer it’s all about pineapples, luaus, flamingos and the whole nine yards. Lucky for you, eHealed teamed up with Afloral to bring you the most beautiful Summer Luau Tablescape you’ve ever seen. Using our some of our favorite metals copper & gold, we incorporated incredible pops of color to really transport ourselves to a tropical island destination. Read More
You already know my house is covered in red, white and blue because the season is true…and upon us. Insert our beautifully spectacular Memorial Day Mantle Décor here! HA.
Soon enough I will change it back up to some bright, fun, festive and colorful summer decor before July 4th takes over again. Stay tuned for some awesome collaborations with Afloral.com this month and the next! Read More
As much as we want to go to New Orleans this year for Mardi Gras, we have to face the music. We cannot make it happen. We have lots of work to do around the house and so much to save up for in order to have an awesome backpacking trip in Europe, come April. Next year, we vow to try harder. Forget trying, we will make it happen. Read More
We love shopping at Trader Joe’s. It feels like our second home. The smiling, familiar faces. The reusable bags. The Trader Joesian culture. Ahhh, the love!
Well, yesterday, we went grocery shopping to fill up the fridge and pantry. Of course, we stopped by the fresh flowers at the entrance to see if anything tickled our fancy. As always, they popped me with a surprise. I love when they have holiday bouquets. We picked up a super sweet Mardi Gras Floral Arrangement for $3.99. What a freaking steal! Read More
Yay! The day is getting closer and closer: Valentine’s Day. I love it. All the hearts. All the love. All the pink. Weeee. Conversation hearts for some Valentine’s Day Mantle Décor madness and we’re off!
After we contemplated on using conversation hearts for our Valentine’s Day Mantle Décor for so long, we finally did it! Little sweet, sugary hearts everywhere. Read More
Dollar Tree is stocked up for Valentine’s Day, guys! You need to hurry and grab what they’ve got before it’s all gone. And, I am not paranoid. I am so serious. If you want to make this Silent Sweetheart Wind Chime, you’re going to have to RUN to grab a pack of the cute conversation heart foam stickers we used for this project.
Every holiday, they stock up on all the goodies a month or two in advance. About a week or two before the big day, everything good is absolutely gone. No joke, I make several trips to make sure I didn’t miss what was available. One more trip for us this week so we can rally up a few more things. Read More
This year, we are digging into a new list of home renovations but we refuse to leave the sweetness of red, pink & white behind. We’re set to make up for our beloved, lost valentine of 2016. Read More
We have such an amazing weekend! We had family over, which is our absolute favorite. My mother and father-in-law, my brother and sister in law, and our niece and nephew all came over for a double birthday celebration. It was Kalex’s birthday on Cinco de Mayo and Lynn’s birthday on the 12th. We planned and planned and finally decided what we wanted to do.
Thank God for AAA and their amazing discounts. We decided we would go to Busch Gardens and Aquatica. All we had to do was log into the AAA website and look up theme park tickets. We got the greatest deal! Three day pass valid for six months after the first entry for use in any three of four different parks: Busch Gardens, Sea World, Discovery Cove and Aquatica. Can you guess how much we paid per person?! I won’t wait all day for you to get it right so I’ll just tell you. $98.99! Yes, you read that right. We got tickets for three different visits all for less than $100 each. What a bargain! That’s what I call a steal. Read More
A long time ago I saw the cutest pin on Pinterest. It was a chair or a side table made up of a piece of tree bark and metal legs. I pondered on how to make this for quite a long time but I also didn’t find it fitting to our home or lifestyle. It was just one of those pins you throw up onto one of your boards in that Pinterest cloud somewhere. And there it stayed for months on end. Plus, it was one of the ones that have a dead link so I’d never know who, what, when, where, how or why.
After the purchase of our first home, our taste in design changed quite a bit. Surprising, huh? Especially considering how stubborn I am. We were moving into a house that had all wood floors on all three levels. Wood floors were not something that I ever liked. Too much wood made me feel a little bit funky. I had to marry them though so I had to find a way to love them because I don’t have the type of money to uproot the floors of the entire house. Read More
