Duck Tape Tassels for Easy Backpack Personalization!

Duck Tape Tassels-18

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine. My baby started preschool. Seriously, I have no clue where the last three years went because she was just born. Two things have totally saved me from crawling into a ball and crying like a baby. One - there's a drive thru coffee shop right around the corner from the school (hi - decaf iced coffee + … [Read more...]

I started sprucing up my powder room a few days ago when I realized I've had the same decor in there since my first house almost eight … [Read more...]

Succulent Planters with Neon Pink Pebbles

Pink Pebbled Succulent Planters

Last week my hubs just got home from a long ten day underway. Ten days really isn't a long time especially when he's been gone for much longer but I'm telling you those ten days felt like ETERNITY. Ten days, alone, with a toddler is hard. Don't get me wrong, every day is special and awesome , it really is, but no day is without challenges. One day, towards the end of the underway, we just had to … [Read more...]

Personalized Art Gold Heart “Couples Art”

Gold Heart Personalized Art for Valentine's Day… or not. I kind of love art with special meaning. Personalized art, pictures colored by my daughter, and things we've created are my favorite things to display around our home.
