    Gift Guides for Him, Her and the Home

    It’s about that time! Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? We bought for our two nephews and that is all. Because they are 3 and 6 and easy to buy for! HA! The rest not so much. But, if you are searching for some good gifts for older teens, or the men and women in your life, I have rounded up a few of our family’s favorites and a few things that are on our lists. Hopefully these gift guides will be helpful for some of you!

    Easy Side Table Makeover

    Thanks for all the love for our new floors!! Literally we smile every time we open the front door :). As we were clearing out the room of furniture in order to start the project, we decided that a few pieces would not be coming back in the room, and a few things would be moving around. I am really loving the new arrangement, but there were a few empty places. This wall for instance, is where the dresser used to sit. I had thought maybe a console table here. But, since I wasn’t really in a hurry to spend any more money, I decided to bring in this bench from our garage. It came with our kitchen table and chairs and we are no longer using it there. I actually really liked it here!

    New Laminate Floors in the Family Room

    It’s finally time!! If you follow me on Instagram then you know we replaced the carpet in our family room and hallway with laminate flooring a few weeks ago. This is a project that has been on our list since we moved in, but it just kept getting bumped by other things. But, we finally got it to the top of the list, they are done, and we love them!! Here is the before for reference.

    Checking In On Our 2019 Goals

    Well hello there!! Every time I take a big break from blogging (like I have this month) it’s never intentional. I just get busy with life, maybe a little uninspired, maybe just not feeling like writing. But, I always, always end up missing it. So, I’m back!!
    Today I thought it would be a good idea to check in and see how we were doing with our 2019 goals! Since there’s only two months left in this year, maybe I still have time to make it!
