Hiding Christmas Gifts with Ikea

Hello again! I’ve been a little out of pocket over the past few months due the passing of my amazing grandfather, my husband’s unexpected hospitalization, me being ridiculously sick for a few weeks (I swear I caught Ebola and MRSA from the hospital #iknowiknow #buttotallypossiblewithme), and then back to the hospital with the hubs. When it rains, it pours around here. I’m trying to ease back into a normal schedule...

Halloween Decor & Lighting

A Nursery that Grew with My Daughter

As much as I love decorating, the frugal side of me prefers to design a room that I’m sure I will love for a long time. I had that exact concept in mind when I decorated my first born’s nursery. I was never a fan of character themes and preferred girly colors that could grow with her. The idea of having to redecorate her room every few years, as her character favorites changed, about gave me hives. I recently completely...
