Bring On The Holiday Season!

Home Decor!

As some of you know we recently moved and bought a new home. Well new to us, but the house looks very 70’s in some rooms so this post will be in parts. Our yard is simply beautiful but the inside of the house needed some TLC.

While my husband was away for work my mother came down and helped me decorate the house and help with the kids. So grateful because my kids can be quite the handful when they choose. Isn’t that how it always is? Be crazy when dad is away.. anyways I wanted to share some fun wall art pieces that I picked up and put up around the house.

yes some of my walls are not the greatest of color but that will be another times project. I will share more complete images once I have the house together completely! But I love this little welcome sign I place right in the front entry way. You will see most pieces I have picked up will be wood and galvanized metal and tin. I love the rustic, farmhouse feel. This piece I absolutely love. I have tons of mason jars and even though it says it’s a candle holder I see flowers in these jars. What do you think?I got both of these tin/wood signs and placed each appropriately in the laundry and bathroom. I love them! They are pretty big so they add to the space without needing more or leaving too much blank space. Each one of these came from TJMaxx. I am all about a great deal and where I live, TJMaxx is pretty much the only store! They were all such a great deal how could I pass them up? Let me share a couple more items I grabbed!I am all about these metal mugs. I literally went through and pretty much got rid of all other coffee cups. Plus these can’t break and I am a total klutz. I freaked out when I saw the store had more and had to bring them home. The littlest things make me so happy!I also picked up this little crate to sit in the bathroom. The kids bathroom is pretty small so I use this to keep the space looking clean and oraganized. I keep the kids washcloths in it as well as wet wipes, extra toilet paper, q-tips..etc. This last picture shows my dining table. I picked up the runner at TJMaxx but the salt and pepper shakers, metal pitcher, and floral arrangement all came from Walmart. I feel Walmart really stepping up lately with what they offer. Everything is so cute, super budget friendly and fits my farmhouse theme perfectly!

I can’t wait to share more as I complete DIYs and other home projects and as we get renovations done! So stay tuned!

DIY Stretchmark Remover: Final Thoughts

Okay I gave the homemade stretch mark remover a fair try and here are my final thoughts. If you are new and aren’t sure what I am talking about I will leave the link to my original post HERE.

Overall the cream I made helped but didn’t remove the marks 100%. It made an amazing, yummy chocolate smelling moisturizer. It really deeply moisturized without leaving my skin feeling sticky or tacky. It did smooth out my skin and make the stretch marks less deep but it wasn’t perfect. But realistically I didn’t expect something to be perfect in just 45 days. IMG_1296

As always loves if you have some crazy DIY’s let me know so I can try them out!!!

New Family Member!

Alright if you follow me on twitter or instagram you would have already seen this new member. We got a kitten!!!! We were worried about introducing a new animal to Baby K because you never really know what kind of personality you will get with an animal. I had a pet rabbit for the past few year and after we brought the baby home he started acting out because of jealousy. It truly broke my heart to get rid of him but he went to a great home and gets all the love he can handle now. Anyways we have waited 6-7 months before getting a new pet. It has been raining non stop for days here in Alabama the last week or two so we have been stuck in the house. My husband is always bringing up getting a kitten and so we are always looking on line for people getting rid of them. I never really thought we were going to get one so soon but my husband out of no where said “Let’s go to the shelter tomorrow and look.” I of course got super excited because I love cats! It didn’t rain at all saturday and so we went to the shelter to take a look. I let Baby K pet the kittens and one let him attempt without any hesitation, he is a little rough with animals. Then she got up and climbed in my arms with Baby K. It was so cute. I knew she was the kitten for us. We adopted her instantly and went to the pet store to get her lots of goodies.

He have been trying to show Baby K how to be a little more gently with her but we really couldn’t have gotten more lucky. This kitten is so loving and puts up with all of us. She always wants to be snuggled up with any of us. I would suggest to anyone introducing baby to pets or vice versa is to always be supervising. A lot of pets are not as kind to take the loving abuse of babies or kids and may snap back. Anyways I love this little kitten so much! She is too precious and a perfect addition to our family!IMG_1566Also I would suggest to everyone looking for a new friend to adopt don’t shop!! The humane society is not a super sad place like some people think! So donate money or items if you can or even volunteer! June is national adopt a cat month!
