Family Update: We are Moving.

February 13, 2020

We debated whether we should share this now, or wait till the deed is done. However, we realized that since so much of our work in the coming months will be tied into this process that it would be really difficult to keep it under wraps. So with that….. WE ARE MOVING! We have been prepping to get our house on the market. It feels completely surreal because we were hoping to be here much longer, and to be honest feels more on the sad side than anything right now, but I guess that is to be expected when it is a place you love so much.

Budget Friendly Bathroom Tile + Tips to Consider.

February 10, 2020


There are thousands of options for tile it seems, so what to look for in quality, material, and price when it comes to bathrooms? We are currently problem solving our master bathroom, so we thought it was a good time to address some of these common questions that come to selecting bathroom tile. Hopefully it can help you narrow down your decision on what to select for your own space.



Linen Closet + Bathroom Organization

January 29, 2020

Organization and order….those things have never come naturally to me. I was never drawn to anything domestic really though! I was a fly by the seat of my pants type of girl who procrastinated on anything that required thoroughness. It wasn’t until I had my 3rd baby Max where this method started to swallow me whole, and I knew it was time to get my rear in gear! So if this sounds familiar to you there is hope! I slowly started to focus on one small space and one small routine at a time to create a life that made room for internal peace. Ultimately, reducing confusion and clutter in your home offers a more peaceful environment for all who live there.

Before we started our spending freeze, I knew I needed to take stock of everything we had and meal plan! Since we have quite a crew to feed now, I thought I would share some super quick tips on how we try to save time and money on food and meal prep…

Today’s post is written by Gabe

We are hoping to break down the process of our fireplace design to answer any questions you may have if you want to give this a try in your own home! When looking into revamping a fireplace surround, it is really important to research, and make sure you check out both national fire code and local fire code before you begin! We consulted multiple fireplace/chimney companies in the area, and spoke with a member of our local fire department just to make sure we were on track. Below is the process, materials, and total cost!


January Spending Freeze!

January 7, 2020

Happy New Year! We have been unplugged since Christmas to allow time for a good reset! I don’t tend to do a word of the year, resolutions, or a list of goals in January. However, I do feel the urge to de-clutter and organize my life in every area! Anyone else? Gabe and I sat down to think through what we want to continue to share with you readers this year. I always appreciate concrete resources! So we will be sending out a series of helpful tools in life, family, and home categories. If you missed, here is our Life Projection Plan printable.

We have more on organization coming soon, but decided to start our year with a SPENDING FREEZE! Have you tried one before? This is a really great challenge for getting in the right headspace to save towards a goal. I created a basic outline download you can print to have as a visual guide!
