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)

Cheap Centerpiece Idea: Graduation Party Décor DIY

Hey y’all! Wanted to pop in and just finish off the posts that I was doing about Jack’s graduation party. I have told you that I was helping to put together some decorations for my nephew’s High School graduation this year. It has been so much fun finding unique projects on Pinterest and through other bloggers. I shared with you a few weeks back the Hat Card Box that I made. I also shared the chalkboard and I wanted to give you an idea of what else was going to go on the tables and a few other unique ideas that you might like to use for your own graduation celebrations.
