Hospital Bag

What's In My Hospital Bag

I can't believe it's that tie already...time to back the famous "hospital bag" to have baby! It's been a learning process on what to pack and what's really recommended to bring along with you.  I've over researched this and I wanted to share my list with you. Here's what I'm bringing along: For Mom: Warm socks Robe Headbands and hair ties Button Front PJs Chargers for ...

Let’s Get Organized Baby!

Bath Kit

Not all baby preparation is done in the nursery.  In fact, not all baby preparation focuses on the baby!  I wanted to share with you some organizing products I undertook in order to make sure I had things on hand, ready to go, easy to use, and of course, organized before baby's arrival.  Have a suggestion for me? Share it in the comments below! First Aid The mDesign Baby First Aid ...

WaterWipes, Walgreens and Our New Arrival, Oh My

Water Wipes Value Pack

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. As you know from all of the baby posts over the past few months, I was due to become a new mom in October. Well, life has a way of making other plans for us and our little bundle arrived on September 16th. New Mom Paranoia Being a new mom bring ...

Organizing The Heart Of The Home

Fast WRap

While moving isn't any fun at all...I have to say that moving your kitchen is the most tiresome part of the process.  When unpacking a kitchen you can't simply toss items into a closet and walk away.  Everything needs to be thought out, planned, sometimes measured, and put away in a methodical manner that means the space is easy to use. Confessions This took a long time.  Let me be upfront ...

Conquer The Kitchen

Blind Corner

Moving is one of life's great stressors.  It's right up there with death.  I mean, why is it so stressful?  The upheaval of all of your possessions, life, and home is what does it.  Moving means you feel unsettled and the sooner you are able to get your home set up, the sooner you'll feel settled.  A great place to start is the heart of the home, the kitchen. Our new home doesn't have a ...

Create Artwork Without Leaving The House

Framebridge on my front step

This year has been insanity for me.  I've house hunted, made some drastic business changes, bought a house, learned we were expecting and well, do you need any more?  Now that we've moved into our new home, I'm looking to make it our own. We've never had real wall space or the need for real artwork on the walls.  My husband is a professional photographer, so you'd think we'd be over run with ...

Dog Safety On The Go

Pet Safe Fence

As you ALL know, I have two very active border collies.  They are always on the go, and always racing around.  It's part of who they are and what makes them happy.  However, as a dog parent, it's not always easy to let them roam freely, especially when we're traveling.  I always worry they might see a wild animal, or just hear something that scares them, and run for the hills. Last summer I ...

My Dream Closet (Part Two)

My Dream Closet Part Two

Thanks for tuning back in to see the rest of my closet organization project.  Honestly, I could have made three posts out of this and taken a dozen more photos.  However, I feel like I'm biased as to how it looks and functions and I didn't want to bore you with too many details.  If you have questions as to where I bought things, my process, or how it's working, comment below!

My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine

As you all know by now, I just moved.  I have been working to establish new routines and organizational systems in my new home.  While my life is basically the same (two dogs, hubby, and self employed), everything has seemed topsy turvy since the move.  I've been working to maintain structure and feel in control once again.  Here are a few of the things I've recently done to make life go just a ...

It’s In The Details

Home Details

Making any space feel cozy is all about the details.  While there are lots of large decisions to be made such as paint color and furniture, the small details are often where a room becomes a space you love.  I've realized that making a house a home isn't an overnight process, no matter how many lists you make. Taking your time and finding just the right products and making the best choices is ...
