One of the things the girls were most excited about regarding the new house was this little shed out back. It’s already pink inside, so they thought it was meant to be, ha! Since our home has dedicated office space (and since I usually just sit on my bed to work anyway), we decided this […]

Eleven years ago today, my dad took his life after a long struggle with mental instability and depression. His favorite flower was the tulip, so each year I set some out to remember. Only lately have income to learn more about this little flower, the tulip, and I am always moved to tears by the […]

This is the laundry room at the new house, and while I haven’t really done much in here in the way of styling, I’m very grateful for the space and storage in this room. The lady who designed the home did a great job! With 4 busy kiddos in this house, I think I spend […]

Hi friends! Thought I’d share some ideas I’ve got running through my head for the new house. Trying not to rush things just to fill it up so I can take a pretty picture for Instagram. Isn’t that kind of a weird thing to even think about? Our social media-driven life can be so weird […]

I started my day laying in bed saying specific prayers over each of my kids and for myself as I prepared to jump into another week filled with unexpected virtual school, unusually extra cold temperatures, frozen water pipes and a stir crazy family who’d been cooped up inside for far too long with dangerously low […]

valentines ideas for kids

Valentine’s Day is going to look a little different for us all this year. If you are trying to figure out what to do with your family, I’ve made a list of fun (and simple!) activities and projects we have done in the past and I’m sure will do again! From sweet (GF) treats to easy […]

If you’re looking for a few Valentine’s Day non-food treats for kids, I’ve rounded up some sweet little goodies that will bring a smile! Since two of our girlies were diagnosed with Celiac, we are always looking for non-food gift ideas around the holidays. Between books, stuffed animals, games and bath fizzies, there’s something for […]

Since we probably aren’t going to be out and about much for Valentine’s Day (or any other date night for awhile, it seems), we might as well go with the flow and get into the at-home date nights! If I’m being honest, my pajama game could use a boost as it currently consists of mostly […]

If you’ve ever wondered what there is to do in Tulsa, we have some ideas! We went for a romantic staycation in Tulsa organized by Taylor Tate and generously sponsored by the local businesses mentioned below. We just moved into Tulsa from an area suburb, and this was such a fun way to start further […]

Every December, I feel like it’s a mad dash to squeeze in all the Christmas movies that we can, and even then, I always forget about a few classics! This year, we put together a Christmas movie menu organized by mood or watcher groups, and we also included where to stream, watch or download! We’ve […]

I am aching to travel. Like, big time. I think that’s one of the things I’ve missed most about 2020 is looking forward to and planning for trips with my family. The girls took their first plane rides last year, and we were so hoping to continue exploring the world with them this year. Alas, […]

Finally, FINALLY remembered to do Christmas card pics this year after forgetting the past few and kicking myself later. But this year, we did it! And I had so much fun planning out our family Christmas outfit ideas! (Here’s another family matching idea, too!) Not to be a diva, but I usually start with what […]

Hey guys! Things look so different this year, and when I was thinking about creating a few gift guides for the holiday season, I thought I’d come at it in a different way. While my favorite gifts to give and receive are experiences together, that can’t happen as much this year, so instead, I rounded […]

Anyone else getting a little (or a LOT) stir crazy staying home so much more this year? We have been feeling the need to bust out of the same 4 walls we’re always looking at, so we decided to rent a local-ish Airbnb for a drive-able and safe family getaway. My BIL recommended a place […]
