Christmas Inspiration

Howdy!  We're in the midst of my favorite time of year -- all Christmas preparations.  Am I nuts??  Maybe... but I love the process of decorating, finishing up shopping, addressing cards, wrapping gifts, making treats to share.  I spent the weekend cleaning, organizing, and decorating, so I'm close to sharing some of my holiday decor with you. :)  But I've also been BLOWN AWAY by some of the most gorgeous inspiration I've found online this year … [Read more...]

Five Easy DIY Advent Calendars (You Can Start TODAY!)

DECEMBER 1!?  Yikes!  Time to get our game on, y'all, and even though Advent officially began on Sunday, most Advent calendars begin on December 1.  I was poking around online yesterday, waiting for our DirectTV to be restored (in the pouring rain!) and came across a few super easy DIY Advent calendars I wanted to share with you.  My peeps are all grown and out of the house, but for those of you with kiddos at home, one of these could be a sweet … [Read more...]

Spread the Christmas Cheer (while Shopping!)

Hi friends!  I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and are slowly emerging from your turkey coma. :)  We were on the go the latter part of the week, sprinting from my mother-in-law's in south Georgia to my sister-in-law's in Tennessee and I confess I'm paying the price for the hectic schedule.  My tree is up but not decorated, I have a pile of mail/bills/packages to sort through, my bathrooms are dirty, and the … [Read more...]

Christmas Prep is Underway…

Ok, so yes -- I'm a first-things-first kinda gal, but how can I pass up a coupon code for Christmas cards??  So I seized my moment... and may have strong-armed the college kid to get the tree put up. :)  But I promise... no decorating... for now. :)  Enjoy the day! Card with envelo Save … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Holiday Monday

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving week!  I'm immersed in Legacy to-dos today and a bit of food prep, but over the weekend, I had so many random holiday ideas and thoughts in my mind, I thought I'd share some with you today.  Maybe something will strike a chord with you?? I always forget that H&M has home decor items, but this inexpensive ($5.99!!) Christmas pillow cover totally caught my eye... Merry and Bright pillow cover  There's … [Read more...]

Weekend Project: Get Holiday-Ready

I don't usually post on Saturdays, but I thought this would be helpful for the onset of the holiday week.  I feel like we've either been out-of-town or hosting guests the last several weekends (not entirely true but it feels that way!).  And this year, I managed to be a bit proactive as far as getting my home ready for the holidays. #wondersnevercease  So with Thanksgiving looming less than a week away, I thought I share a few quick things I did … [Read more...]

I Had a Post Planned for Today

You know how that goes?  Well, my good intentions did not pan out over the weekend.  You see, on Friday we had our first annual Legacy Christian School Golf Tournament -- and we had dear friends from out of town here for the event.  After running my legs off last week with last minute preparations, yesterday I felt like I had been run over by a golf cart.  For pics of the event head to the Legacy Facebook page! And so, once our guests got on … [Read more...]

McGill Design Group (Monday Eye Candy)

Good Monday, friends!  I hope you had an amazing weekend and are ready for the week ahead.  We were on the go with my in-laws and busy prepping for the Legacy Golf Tournament coming up this Friday.  But I wanted to pop in today with a little eye candy for you... I stumbled across this image by McGill Design Group in my Instagram feed and oh lordy -- be still my heart. source So, as best I can tell, Plum Furniture is part of their interior … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (September & October)

I cannot believe it's already November!  It seems like time just speeds up from year to year, doesn't it?  Well, at least I got back on a semi-regular posting schedule. :)  So just in case you've missed something from the last couple of months... I caught you up on my life lately back in September -- which was a whole lotta Legacy and getting my kiddos off and running on new adventures. You wouldn't believe how much those sweet peas in … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair Finds {Monday Eye Candy}

The weekend sure flew by didn't it?  I'm back today with a little eye candy for you in the form of my Country Living Fair finds!  I was on a tight budget this year, but I picked up several fun gifts/stocking stuffers this year, along with a couple of decor items.  For me it's more about the inspiration I collect at the Fair than the purchases, but I was tickled this year with what came home with me. As you can see, lots of small things -- … [Read more...]
