Teen Bedroom Makeover

With Abigail in her Teens now, she certainly has her own ideas and opinions on how she would like things to be.

We try to accommodate her when we can. She wanted a more grown-up looking bedroom this year. So...begone her mixed colors and patterns.

We ran to BigLots and found a nice Black and White comforter for her new Full size bed. We also ran over to Dollar General for these black and white baskets that I saw last month...as of today my local store still had a few.

We bought these two nightstands from a local FB page and transformed them with some white spray paint last week. I love how the new handles give the set a new fresh, updated look.

Now we are on the lookout for Pillows to add color.

So what colors would go best with this set for a Teens room, Ideas?

Kitchen Command Center

I needed a command center somewhere in our house. This wall in our kitchen will do nicely!

My MIL gave us this lovely gold frame and we already had the cork board. Husband just trimmed the side a tad and we never spent any money!

We always gravitate in our kitchen after school, late night snacking and just talking with friends so I knew I wanted it to be placed where we were constantly planning our weeks.

With our 3 kids and Husband's busy travel schedule I needed to keep organized and the kids needed something to check off their chores.

I'm still wanting to add something to each side but I'm not sure what.


Any suggestions?

The Search Has Ended...

The Search for the perfect couch pillows has ended!

I walked into Bealls Outlet while they were putting their new merchandise on the shelves and I immediately grabbed these 4 matching pillows. New Year, new look! I'm going for French Country mixed with traditional decor in 2016.

I will be adding plants in cream vases, I have already spotted a few possibilities from Hobby Lobby.

Christmas morning

Christmas morning was perfect!

The kids received just about everything that was on their list this year.

We had a great time visiting with family.

Santa Can See Us

I love a rooftop lined in white lights and this year is the first year in such a long time that we have done it.

We hope to add more lights tonight.

Almost done decorating!

Entryway is Ready

Our entryway is Ready for Christmas!

I love the softness of the candles early in the evening now. I'm not sure what I will put on top of this table after the Holidays.

Any of you have ideas to share?

Christmas Sneak Peak

I moved the cabinet to this wall and today I pulled items from various other rooms to make this Christmas vignette.

We love how it looks as you walk in the front door.

Together Again

As it turns out...

Moving to OH is not in our future for our family at this time. Husband is driving home as I type this. Job was not what was introduced or explained to husband and after talking to his old workplace whom will happily take him back, we are staying in FL and will make the most of it!

It's all in God's hands.
