• Adding Curb Appeal on a Budget

    The weather has been so nice and beautiful this last week that we have spent most of our time outside enjoying the sunshine. I think I even may have the start of a tan! Whoohoo! I was a little bored sitting in the front yard as the kids rode their bikes around. I just finished off my latest read,  The Fiery Cross from the Outlander series. – The series is seriously so good! I was looking for a project to work on and that’s when my eyes locked in on my front door.     The blue of the door was a bit faded and the front door still had bits of…

  • The New Opalhouse Line at Target

      Have you heard of the new dreamy line at Target called Opalhouse?! I noticed my Target putting out a couple of things the other day and just had to share them with you! The line ranges from bathroom, to home decor and furniture, to bed sets and outdoor dining. They even have removable wallpaper!  The colors are so bold and stunning and I can’t wait to implement some of the items into my own home! I already have some plans for that removable wallpaper!

  • A My Little Pony Birthday

    Ever since we moved to Traverse City last year, Arianna asked on a regular basis if she could go to the ‘Wolf Hotel’ or what most people call, The Great Wolf Lodge. If you are not familiar with The Great Wolf Lodge, it is a large resort hotel that has a massive indoor water park that is exclusive to guest of the hotel. It also has lots of other fun activities for both kids and adults with 5 pin bowling, an arcade, spa, children’s spa, ice cream shop, restaurants, and story time, to name a few. Last year Arianna and I made the plan that we would go to the Great Wolf Lodge for…

  • Quick and Easy Christmas Sign

    This is the first Christmas that we are celebrating in this house. It is also the first time that I have had a mantel to decorate for Christmas. In our old house we used a medium sized bookshelf to hang our stockings off of, which was actually really cute. So I didn’t really have any big item to put on our mantel and I really wanted a big grab your eye sign to fill the mantel. I needed something that was also going to fit in my budget. I came up with this Christmas sign, not only is it quick and easy – taking less then 5 minutes to put together-…
