Today I want to share with you a project I’ve been working on for our new home! I’m so excited about this fun wall project because it is near and dear to my heart. Our little family of 5 consists of people all born in different states. Sounds strange to some I know but I’m sure there are others out there too. I love this interesting little fact about our family. It is part of our story, and our story is one of my favorite things! I love seeing how God has knit our little family together in His perfect way in His perfect timing. Continue reading “State Wall Project”
Happy February 29th friends! I awoke this morning to my 5 year old son jumping all over our house very LOUDLY… when I asked why he replied, “Because it’s LEAP DAY Mom!” Oh how I enjoy the fresh perspective of a 5 year old mind! So simple, sweet, and most of the time funny. Well to celebrate the kids and I are doing a few fun things I wanted to share in hopes it will inspire more Leap Day fun for others too.

DIY Pallet Wall Basket
If you give my man a saw… he will build me an awesome rustic hanging wall basket from old pallets we have in the backyard! I’m extremely blessed to be married to a wonderfully talented handy man. Eric can build just about anything I’ve asked, for example I got a gorgeous farmhouse table built from old barn wood for our 11 year anniversary. Other great pieces in our house are Eric originals also, but I won’t bore you anymore with my swooning over my guy! Recently we were contacted by Rockwell Tools to give one of their tools a try for a blog post. My husband gladly volunteered to debut his first guest post on my blog without hesitation. So without further ado I will let my favorite man take it from here! Continue reading “DIY Pallet Wall Basket”
Intestines Pizza and Bones Breadsticks
As a fun weeknight meal for my kiddos this week I made intestines-shaped pizza and bone-shaped breadsticks! The kids thought it was so silly and fun they loved it. These would be great served at a Halloween party or just any day for a spooky meal.
Inside Out Halloween
This year our family decided to be the Inside Out characters from the popular Disney/Pixar film. Today I’m sharing some pics of our costumes and a few DIY helps if your family wants to dress up as these characters too 🙂
Old Frame… New Chalkboard Sign
So this post is half Friday Favorites and half DIY! I love the idea of having a cute chalkboard sign to decorate with each changing season. I don’t love the prices of said cute chalkboard signs. So I went through some old frames I’m not using and decided to make my own for free!

The Gift of Babysitting
My sister recently had a birthday and my Mom and Dad gave her and her husband a night out at the movies as a gift. I wanted to offer babysitting their sweet daughter as part of my gift and went online looking for a cute printable coupon to stick in her card to let her know. I looked and found nothing I liked.
Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub
I enjoy giving friends and family DIY gifts that offer a chance to pamper themselves. In the past I’ve shared some of those with you, and now I’m sharing a fun fall treat. I have several people in my life who are super busy this time of year and could use a bit of encouragement to slow down and take care of themselves (me included)! I also love pumpkin pie spice everything. Yep I’m that typical girl in love with all things fall right now. Continue reading “Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub”
