A new room for the boys….moving upstairs

A new room for the boys….moving upstairs

We moved the boys upstairs right after Christmas. It's funny...all Mia wanted was a room of her own when we moved in, so the girls each had their own room upstairs, and Wit was downstairs in an office converted into a room. A few months later, Mia moved herself right on into her sister's room. So once Wit could go up and down the stairs by himself, I knew it was time to make the move the move upstairs for him. His room is now our family office - craft room - Knox's room. Until Knox is sleeping through the ... Read More...

6 months of yummy!!!

6 months of yummy!!!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy am I in LOVE with this little boy! He is the PERFECT finale to my baby making years :) He is 17 pounds of joy and sweet laughs. He loves being a baby, and he eats up all the attention his 3 siblings shower him with. After 4 kids I have learned that sometimes you can't fight the funk.....so when he grew out of his rock and play where he slept 9+ wonderful hours a night in, and I placed him in his beautiful brand new crib where he slept no more than 30 mins at a time in, I scooped up ...

Dinning Room Updates

Dinning Room Updates

  Happy week of Christmas! I am READY! I did ALL my shopping online this year, and my gifts are wrapped and ready to go! However I'm soooooo ready to have my closet back, because of my tornado son Wit they live there until the big day. Here is a peak at the progress I've made in the dinning room :) BEFORE IN PROGRESS I redid the chairs in painter's drop cloth and painted a navy stripe on the back for a french grain sack look at 1/2 the price! I'm saving for a ... Read More...

Teaching gratefulness

Teaching gratefulness

After cleaning out the girl's room AGAIN, purging, organizing, and trying to figure out what in the heck to do with all this STUFF I find myself stressed! I am stressed out! I know we have too much, and too much always leads us to feelings of ungratefulness. Isn't that funny? The more you have the less you appreciate it? It is this way with me anyway. So before the avalanche of toys hit my home next week I am determined to giveaway, donate, and get a game plan together to live with less. How are you ... Read More...

My artwork

My artwork

    Hello friends! My aunt in Atlanta has an amazing art collection, and I am sure she started early so in her fifties her home is magazine ready with originals..... literally! I on the other hand keep getting distracted with my "art money" and have not started a collection, but instead keep spending my money on professional photos of my family that leave little room for any other originals on our walls. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our Christmas family photo shoot this ... Read More...

November? What November?

November? What November?

Oh my goodness ya'll I missed you! November just came and went and I had a million blog posts running around in my head, and as fate would have it not one of them made it! I am sure you are feeling the crazy this time of year too, and I tell you I struggle everyday with forcing myself to take a DEEP BREATH, CHILL OUT, RELAX, and enjoy the moment. It is hard on those days when my house never gets picked up. It's hard on those days when I am running like a chicken with my head cut off from school events, to ... Read More...
