HOME DECOR HAUL

So I am obsessed with home decor shopping! If I tell my husband, " I need to run to target for some milk , I'll be back real quick." Mostly means I really need to check if that rug that I spotted has gone on sale yet. If I know I am driving by a Home Goods, T.J. Maxx , Marshall's I will plan a pit stop. I know thats bad. Because then I wanna go through the whole store. Well anyways lets get to the good stuff I bought a few things recently and I wanted to show you!


This beautiful rhinestone star I might not know where I'm putting it just yet but I bought two of them!



Deer is also from Home Goods. $29.99

My sister it was weird. She is crazy. I think the silver finish is what sold me.



This rug I got for $50 from Target on clearance! Original price was $100.

We soon will change that light fixture but I just haven't decided on the one that I want yet. That door leads into the master bedroom and we are also going to change the doors. They are really old so we need to update them. I was thinking of doing a colored door for our Master bedroom what do you think?

YARD MAKEOVER

Ok, so I know I haven't posted often and a lot has happened since August/Sept 2013. I have so many awesome posts to post with house updates. I am overly excited about it too, so forgive me if the posts are all over the place. I have taken many pictures of the process so I can show ya'll awesome before and afters, meanwhile getting the hang of this blog thingy. So without further do here our some yard before and afters, now keep in mind we still are going to do plenty but since we had to take a break so mother nature could pay us a visit (winter season) we had to hold our horses. And Oh did mother nature pay us a visit , its now spring and I feel like it's still winter. Maybe it will just skip spring all together and move right on to summer!? Well will see for now enjoy the pictures!

Bathroom Before & After's

Hello! I know its been quite some time, but here is a little sneak peak of what has been going on! I want to do some Before & After posts because, let's be real I have so many of them coming your way! I know super exciting!!! Without further do , lets get started. Here is our family restroom this is the restroom that gets used & abused , we don't have a Master bathroom in the bedroom so this bathroom is shared between me and my husband and two kids. We eventually want to redo the Entire bathroom but for now we can only do small changes so we can spend some of the $$$ on other things.

                                                       Main Bathroom Before
                                                       Main Bathroom Progress

                                       Painted cabinets & Medicine Cabinet & Walls
                                      Added Knobs
                                      New curtains
 Then I found this handy dandy piece. I don't have a Linen closet so I definitely needed some kind of storage.

 This is what I was using to display the cotton swabs meanwhile I found THE ones.
              It didn't take long before I found them! I bought them individually online.
                                Here they are nicely displayed.
