Nordstrom Home Sale Picks (Under $50)

Happy New Year and Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a festive and fun New Years, even if it involved yoga pants and cups of tea.  I managed to make it til midnight and then spent all day on the couch yesterday.  It was a cold and rainy day, perfect for enjoying the fire in comfort. :) Today is the last day of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, and so I felt I'd be remiss if I didn't share some of the great deals they've got for the … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Teacher Gift Edition}

Hi y'all!  Woo hoo and TGIF!  The hubs and I are headed to the lake to celebrate his birthday with friends this weekend and not a moment too soon.  While my to-do list still looms (wrapping, shipping, last minute shopping), God knew he and I needed time in a serene place this weekend.   Lots of non-holiday stress has been creeping in and I think a little time in front of a roaring fire with good friends and good food is just what the doctor … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It (November)

Happy December!  I have to confess I was tempted to skip my November recap today and jump straight into Christmas decorating and DIY --  this is one of my favorite times of year and I have a few cool projects in the works and loads of ideas for more.  But, it didn't seem right to short-change the month of November.  It was  a good one!  And I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving holiday and were able to linger among your loved ones for a … [Read more...]

DIY Twig Vase

You wouldn't think such an easy DIY would take me two weeks to share, but life/end of school happened and here we are!  We enjoyed some fantastic family/friend time at Lake Blue Ridge over the holiday and the fun has spilled over into the week.  The current inhabitants of my home are two 15 year olds, three 19 year olds, a 21 year old, a 27 year old "boomerang", and the hubs and I.  You can imagine the chaos!   It's only for a few days, so we'll … [Read more...]
