Christmas in July — $500 Cash Giveaway

Christmas in July $500 Giveaway!

I know, I know... it's July and we are talking about Christmas already. Let's face it most of the craft stores already have most if not all of their holiday displays out. Sad that this is the world we now live in, but if you can't enjoy it you might as well embrace it! I secretly want time to stand still so I can enjoy and embrace all the little moments I'm enjoying and experiencing with Ryder. But at the same time, I can't wait to see his reactions to Christmas morning. Granted he will only be … [Read more...]

{Giveaway} Share the Love

Enter to win the Share the Love $600 cash giveaway!

It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is in less than two weeks. This is our last Valentine's Day as two. Our last Valentine's Day without having to worry about securing a babysitter for a date. We are taking full advantage and going out to a swanky dinner. Jon think's I'm crazy, but little does he realize this will soon be our weekly/monthly challenges. The days of "where should we eat" will turn into "do we have a babysitter" and the importance of where we go will won't really matter. This … [Read more...]

Woodworking Design Challenge + UncommonGoods Giveaway!


I hope everyone had a great weekend. We sure did--we had our baby shower this weekend! I'm still in shocked that I just typed that and still filled with so much joy from the weekend. Our family and friends spoiled us and babyWoodsy! I was hoping to share about it yesterday, but I was wiped out, and today I'm in Salt Lake City. I know--I'm crazy like that. But in the meantime go check out a few of the photo's I posted to Instagram from our baby shower! More to come on why I'm in Salt Lake later … [Read more...]

{Giveaway} HomeRight® PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicators

Enter to win our @HomeRight Giveaway!

The other day, Jon shared the painting of the nursery! Yippppeeee! It got done in record timing which made me happy. I guess you could say I'm in nesting mode, although I dont' feel like it, but I just want everything done and I want it done NOW (in my Veruca Salt voice from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). I think what may have helped the painting process move so quickly was due to Jon using the HomeRight® PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Roller Applicator. The thing is amazing, although … [Read more...]

Paint Less–Tape More + $75 Home Depot Gift Card

ScotchBlue Taping before and after

This post was brought to you in partnership with The Home Depot and ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape. Last year we made our master bedroom into a master suite--a place to really unwind and enjoy! If you remember we had a blue accent wall in our room. At first I liked it. I can honestly say I never loved the blue accent wall. But over the past year I've decided that the accent wall has to go. It took a lot of convincing to get Jon to repaint over that wall. Back when we were painting the room we … [Read more...]
