Sports Themed Bedroom Makeover

My teenager had outgrown his twin bed so we decided to move the Queen bed from the guest bedroom into his room and update both rooms at the same time.  His bedroom was previously a baseball themed room, but since he was currently into soccer and basketball, I went with a sports theme.

What I am Wearing - Cardi Party

The weather has been so crazy the last couple of weeks.  It is chilly in the mornings and 75 degrees by the afternoon, so layering is a must.  One of my favorite ways to layer during transitional weather is with cardigans.  There are so many different styles of cardigans, from grandpa style to waterfall to the traditional button front.  Here are a few of my favorite personal favorites!

Welcome Spring - Decorating with Pastels

I love when the weather starts warming up and the bulbs in my yard start to bloom.  It means that Easter and Spring is right around the corner, which calls for an update to my winter decor.  I switch out snowmen for birds and bunnies and dark colors for pastels.  Decorating for the different seasons does not have to break the bank.  Most of my decor comes from discount stores like TJ Maxx (aff link), thrift shops, or Goodwill.

Our Basement Renovation - Let the Framing Begin!

If you have been following my other posts, you will know that we have had the underground plumbing installed and are finally to the point where we can start building walls (Whoo hoo!)  With our layout marked on the floor with painter's tape, we started building the wall that will separate the laundry room from the bathroom, since it needed to use 2x6" studs to accommodate the main plumbing lines.

What I am Wearing - Striped Dress 3 Ways

Our weather was 70 degrees this past weekend, so I decided to pull out one of my favorite dresses I purchased from Old Navy last season and show how it can be transitioned into spring.   I love being able to extend the wear of summer dresses by adding jackets, cardigans, or leggings.   This dress is very comfortable as it is made of a stretchy, cotton fabric and the A-line cut is flattering on all body types.  The navy and white stripe pattern is very versatile and can be paired with a variety of colors.

Essentials for a Home Pedicure

I love a spa day as much as any girl, but it can get expensive going to the nail salon every month.  I try to splurge a couple of times a year and get a professional manicure and pedicure, but what is a girl to do the rest of the year?  I love wearing sandals and flip flops all summer long, so its important that my feet look pretty!

Letting My Faith be Bigger Than My Fear

This post was inspired by my "Love Wins" sweatshirt from the new Promise line by 
Covenant Gear

Have you ever felt like something was missing?  The past couple of years, I have felt that way, even though I live a pretty charmed life.  I know that it was mostly my fault, because even though I was active in church, I was not truly seeking God in my daily walk.

Planning a Bible Journaling Workshop

I have been Bible Journaling for several months now and love sharing my pages on social media.  I have gotten many questions and comments on what type of Bible it is, how did I learn about it, etc. One day my friend Melanie and I were talking about this and we came up with the idea to host a workshop to introduce our friends to Bible Journaling.  We hosted our first one a couple of weeks ago and it was a hit with the ladies that attended!
