I have had a blast decorating our new house and making it a home we will enjoy for years to come.

While I love picking out new furniture and decor, I am not exactly a fan of spending a ton of money on any of it. Especially on throw pillows.

I am thankful for a mama and daddy who taught me how to use power tools, sand and stain a piece of wood, hammer a nail, patch a hole, and paint a wall.

I feel like them teaching me these things from a young age helped foster my independence, as well as my do-it-myself attitude, and it allowed me to develop a love for creating things with my own hands. It’s just a really good, proud feeling when you can point to something and say, “I made that.”

Laundry Room Refresh

This DIY project was our first as new homeowners, and looking ahead, it will most likely be the easiest that we tackle.

Since our laundry room is more like a laundry closet, this wasn’t an extensive renovation. We needed to maximize the small space, though, for functionality and storage.

Macrame Plant Hangers

A couple weeks ago I shared on Instagram my favorite cozy corner in my home — in my master bathroom, to be specific  — and so many of you loved the macrame plant hangers I have above my bathtub.

I continue to receive direct messages asking me where I purchased those little darlings, but unfortunately they are no longer in stock at Target.

However, I was able to find some comparable ones on Amazon for you — some of them at a better price than what I paid for mine! Continue reading “Macrame Plant Hangers”

How I Keep Our Floors Clean with 3 Pets

How I Keep Our Floors Clean with 3 Pets

When we bought our house in May, updating the floors immediately rose to the top of my home renovation to-do list. It’s somewhere between overhauling our backyard and gutting our master bathroom.

But thanks to our AC going out this July, replacing our current tile and laminate has fallen down the timeline and likely won’t be completed until spring.

That’s the joy of homeownership, right? It’s always something.

What I Didn’t Expect with Buying a House

What I Didn’t Expect with Buying a House

My husband and I have been working toward buying our first home for quite some time now, and let me tell you, it has not been an easy journey. From credit qualifications to saving money, we have struggled through every moment.

Now, as we settle into our little abode in the sleepy old mill town of Kannapolis, North Carolina — yes, the birthplace of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt — I am thankful for a sense of relief and to be on the other side of this hurdle.

Two years ago, I didn’t think we would ever be homeowners, but here we are.

Review /// My Experience with Grove Collaborative

Review /// My Experience with Grove Collaborative

I am a sucker for free sh*t. I probably say, “If it’s free, it’s for me,” at least once every day, and that is exactly how I got sucked into making my first purchase with Grove Collaborative.

I’m going to be honest with you. At the time I submitted my order, I had no idea what Grove was. All I knew was a bunch of people I follow on Instagram were talking about the website and Grove was offering a FREE four-piece gift set with your first purchase of $20 or more.
