Closet Clean Out, Kon-Mari Style

If you follow me on Instagram and watched any of my stories from the weekend, then you already know that my closet went through a major transformation over the weekend! Inspired by Marie Kondo of Tidying, I did what was loooooong overdue, and decided to clean out my closet for REAL. Now don’t get me wrong, a few times every season, I pick out items that don’t fit ot haven’t worked out, and either donate them or sell them, and[Read more]

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying an extra day off school and work today!

Friday Favorites

TGIF, Friends! We made it through our first week back to school, and as usual, I am tired and ready for the weekend! But no rest for the weary- our downstairs has been in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint for a looooong time, and I’m going to start to tackle it myself this weekend! It’s quite an undertaking though, and the main reason it’s taken so long to get it done- our first floor has a very[Read more]

What’s in My Cart + Weekly Meal Plan

Am I the only one or does anyone else have a million things sitting in their Amazon shopping cart pretty much at all times?? Anytime I’m browsing and I find something I like, I just add it to my cart and when it’s time to actually order the things I need, I “save for later” all the frivolous items until next time. Today I’m sharing just a couple of the things I have in my Amazon cart that I’m waiting[Read more]

Our Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party

We have a lot of wonderful holiday traditions that we keep up with each year, but one of my favorites is our “Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party!” It’s no big secret that we’re homebodies but several years ago, Brantley and I wanted New Year’s Eve to be a bit more fun than Scott was hoping for. So we dressed up, put on makeup, and did our hair, made some simple appetizers, she made the decoration (homemade signs and streamers), and called[Read more]

Happy New Year! + My Word of the Year

Happy New Year! Welcome 2019!! I hope you had a wonderful evening bringing in the New Year like we did (on the couch, in our jammies, with some champagne :)). I love New Years! A fresh start, new goals and plans, new intentions. A clean slate. I don’t see it as being a lot of pressure, I see it more as being a starting place for big changes. And I like change. The past few years, I’ve picked a word[Read more]

TGIF: WTFlu

Well, hello, my friends! I am out from under the blankets of my sofa, finally, after laboring through the misery of the flu this week. I haven’t been really sick in several years now, and let me just say, GET YOUR FLU SHOT if you haven’t already. I started getting a scratchy throat and a mild cough on Sunday, and I went to the doctor on Monday for an unrelated appointment. I was starting to feel worse and described my[Read more]
