5 for the road: back in action

Been a busy week here! I had a few design appointments… started to work on the bubs “new” room annnnddd best of all ….found a cheap flight so flying to the beach tomorrow with my honey! We wanted to get one little last bite of summer before we brought Chloe home on September 9th. I have been busy nesting for the puppy and I’m so excited! Stella is going to be so excited to have a little sister. She told me….Yeah I probably been inhaling too much polyurethane. anywho…I cannot wait for puppy breath!!!Fullscreen capture 8182016 25525 PM

I made a really good chicken pot pie this week with a homemade cream of soup base that I’m excited to share with you next week. So easy and none of that canned sodium stuff….

I’m also going to put together a video on my wood wall “headboard” that I completed in about an hour!! I am so thrilled with how it turned out… best part about this headboard is it was paid for with the basketball wall hanging that I sold on Facebook so it was basically free. I love a good deal like that!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Teen Boy Room Design Plan

Here’s the truth about the situation in my son’s room…seriously looks like the day we moved in. I literally have not touched this room and my goal this back-to-school season was too give him more of a bedroom that suits his personality and style. The convo went like this…”hey Con, mind if I update your room a bit?…” he’s all…”yes, that would be great…but no “vintage” stuff…you like the old stuff…I like new stuff…” Those were my only directions….I think I can handle that…

The room does not have a whole heck of a lot of space but plenty for him. My goal is to maximize the space and make it a little bit more efficient and put together. The good thing is that I don’t have to paint the walls:) I am going to have a painter come and paint the ceiling White. I do love the Navy but it totally sucks the light out of the room and with only one window, this room definitely lacks light. Here is what I am working with….

10 cheap ways to decorate your dorm room

Hey yall! Back to school time in full swing here! Bubs started on Friday and peanut starts on Wednesday. Tomorrow will be the last day that I get up and drive my people to school—wow…hard to believe. They will be taking turns driving each other to school. Helps out that their schools are down the street from each other. It is weird though. When they get their license there is this whole new freedom—not just for them…but for me too. It is nice….but at the same time it is just one more milestone that comes and goes too quickly. They are gaining independence…and that is a good thing. I am happy for them….and just a little sad to see another chapter close—but 95% happy…only a tad sappy:) I keep repeating the mantra…I am here to help them be happy, independent people—and driving is just one more step to them living their own lives…and for that I feel very blessed and grateful.10 cheap ways to decorate your dorm @cleverlyinspired (11)

Modern Farmhouse Kitchen #homearamahouse15

Well… happy Monday you all! Today is book day for my bubba. I can’t believe that summer is closing in on us! It really does go way too fast. It’s funny because when the kids were preschoolers I really couldn’t wait for the end of summer but now just two years away from college… the summers are really precious. I survived Universal, Wet & Wild and Epcot this past week. My bubs and I had so much fun! I was holding on to him for dear life through most of the rides which he found completely hilarious. We had a lot of great conversation and a lot of great laughs….so happy we took this trip:)
