Master Bedroom Refresh – Spring 2015

Whim Bedding Collection  6

I'm so excited to share a little refresh we recently did to our master bedroom. Our bedding is a few years old now and thanks to our adorable dog she had ripped parts of our comforter. She's tiny and likes to "fluff" before she lays down... resulting in her tearing it with her razor sharp teeth! So we knew it was time to retire our old comforter set and come up with a new look. At the same time we decided this my friends at Martha Stewart Living contacted me and asked me if I would like to try … [Read more...]

Yogabed™ – The Luxury Foam Mattress

Yogabed 1

A big thanks to Yogabed for sponsoring todays post. As always all opinions are our own.  Jon and I have been married for going on 7 years and have been together for 12.5 years. In the 7.5 years we've lived together we have never ever had a brand new mattress. The first few years of our marriage we slept on Jon's mattress from high school. Then a family friend was selling the mattress they bought just a few month's prior so we bought it (and upgraded to a king size bed). So when Yogabed … [Read more...]

Five Reasons Why We Love The Boppy® Newborn Lounger

5 Reasons We love the Boppy® Newborn Lounger

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Boppy Newborn Lounger . The opinions and text are all mine. I'm officially 7.5 weeks into this whole parenting thing. Day-by-day it is getting easier... Kind of. I remember the first few days home after our stay in the hospital. We had a crying baby and nothing we did made him quiet. One of the evenings, when I was feeling hopeless I opened up Ryder's closet in the nursery. I grabbed The Boppy® Newborn Lounger from the closet and … [Read more...]

Glitter Stencil Vase

Glitter Stencil Vase

Late last year, Amy from Mod Podge Rocks reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to try out her new stencil line. I love using stencils and I adore Amy, so I agreed to give her new stencil line a try! I received the Mod Podge ® Rocks! Peel & Stick Stencils - Tangier stencil. After I received it I was trying to think of a project to make. After making my spring bird cage for the Pinterest Party and prettying up our buffet in our dining room I decided I would repurpose the washi tape … [Read more...]

Painting the Nursery

Painting the Nursery

Do you like to paint? I don't mind it. I guess its a good thing since I fee like I paint a room in our house just about every month. Last year, at Haven I met the people at HomeRight and they shared the HomeRight® PaintStick EZ-Twist Paint Applicator with me. I'll be honest, I was skeptical at first, but I still wanted to give it a try. I never got to give it a try in 2013 and I figured the perfect project to try it on in 2014 was the nursery! After de-cluttering the nursery in just one … [Read more...]
