Florida Room Style Board

I'm not a winter girl so in a perfect world I would live in a place that was never cold and was just a walk away from the ocean.  I'll probably never live in such a place but it is fun to decorate and bring a beachy feel to my Idaho home.   I was recently inspired by Douglas Elliman's Florida Real estate team to share my ideas for their Florida Room Style Board challenge.   A "Florida Room" is a room that is like a sunroom or screen room that is protected from the elements but feels like Florida all year long.



Free Printable Mother's Day Card

 If you're a mom, you know all about putting yourself last.  I worked really hard on this post but I didn't post when I wanted because I had other more important 'mom things' to get done and you know what, that's OK! Because my kids come first.  ALWAYS.  And that's what Mother's Day is all about isn't it?  Celebrating moms for the great sacrifices they make every day for their kids. 


DIY Window Trim



We've been in our new house for about a year and a half and we're finally getting some projects done and I'm so excited to show you the progress we've made!  None of our windows have window trim and that was one of the first things I wanted to work on because I knew it was going to make a huge difference.  Here's what our window looked like before.  

DIY Kitchen Island Plans

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I were sitting in front of a nice lady who was showing us all the upgrades we could add to the house we were building.  One of those expensive upgrades was a kitchen island.  I desperately wanted one but when we heard the cost we both got this panicked look in our eyes and shrugged our shoulders and decided we could build our own island when the time was right.  Fast forward a year and my parents decided to renovate their kitchen and get rid of all their old cabinets.  They graciously let us have their cast offs and we were so excited!
Those cabinets have been sitting in the middle of my kitchen and they may look dirty and sad right now but I know they're going to be beautiful when we are done with them.  Here's the low down on what we plan to do.


Dollar Spot Hack-Easter Egg Tree

I don't know about you, but I'm addicted to the Target Dollar Spot.  Every time I walk into Target that dang Dollar Spot sucks me in and I spend 15-20 minutes going through the bins.  Their Easter decor did not disappoint this year.  One of my Easter finds was this little Easter Egg tree.  It reminded me of an Easter egg tree that my mom used to have when we were kids.  I thought it looked a little sparse, but I bought it anyway thinking I could spruce it up a bit.
