Contact Me

I love hearing from each and every one of you!

I’ve finally realized that I can’t always respond to every single email that I receive (unless I move to a foreign country, sans kids and husband and hide out in a bunker) so I apologize in advance if you have tried to reach me and haven’t heard back. I do, genuinely read every single email and comment that you leave (and appreciate them more than you know).

But… all of that being said, If you have a super quick question contact me below and I’ll do my best to back to you as soon as possible. Thank you so much!

    Hey Mandy, I’m playing around with my page, and trying to do the custom header. How exactly did you do your’s?

    We don’t know eachother but I happened upon your site from a mutual friend. I just had to say that I love your site. Your colors are great. I’m VERY new at blogging and have new touches to make to mine. I’ve been traveling a bunch of different sites for ideas and help to try and figure this all out. In the meantime, just wanted to tell you that you had a great page.

    Oh. My. Goodness. Your kids are beyond adorable. What a gorgeous family — it is no wonder you’re the “baby pusher from Carbondale”! :)

    Love the blog.

    Hey Mandy,
    I was just reading your post as I was waiting on some of my computer stuff to finish and saw that you have google advertising on your page. Omnipod is the first one listed, that is the company that I work for!
    Just found that interesting, and kind of neat.
    p.s I hope you can make it home to change today at lunch. Makonnen was already pinching me at 8:00 this morning!

    Hi Mandy

    I just wanted to tell you I love your blog. I think the older that Bently gets he looks more and more like you when you were his age. Lisa thinks so too we were talking the other day and she said that he looked like you. You have a wonderful family enjoy.

    My name is Maura and I have a son whose birthday is Dec 29th. I have been searching the web for great 1st Birthday ideas, and I came across your pics from your son’s winter candyland theme party. I loved them! Was wondering where you got your print outs? And any other suggestions you might have.

      I don’t know how I am just now seeing this (1 yr later), but thank you so much for the compliment on my logo! Means a lot!

    Hi Mandy,

    I love the look you created for your master bedroom and I’d like to do something similar. Is your accent wall a dark brown/expresso or does it have a hint of green in it?

  11. Kate says

    Hi Mandy! I came across your blog while I was researching (dundundun) minivans! Specifically, I am looking at buying a Nissan Quest. I thought the video of your trip to the dealer with your bff was too funny! Recently, my husband and I went to the Nissan lot and had a similar experience – what’s up with that??

    So – do you like the Quest? Any issues? Any comments on the competition?

    Thanks in advance! BTW – LOVE your sense of style!!!

    • says

      Hi Kate! I absolutely love my Nissan Quest. It was very hard for me because I was one of those that said, “I will never drive a mini!” I must say…this minivan has made my life 800 times easier and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone! I test drove the Odyssey and I liked it too, but ultimately I liked the body style of the Quest better. Both are probably wonderful! Hope that helps!

    Thank you for putting God above being popular or having negative publicity. I happen to believe that when we put garbage in our minds, it stays there somewhere. I don’t know about everyone, but I don’t want all the things in Different Shades of Gray in my mind. I may be boring, but I love loving God, my husband, my family, my friends and my church. I want to be an honorable and yes, a royal person, as He is. If he is a King, and we are His kids, we need to act like we are the kids of the King. Do you think even Queen Elizabeth (minor royalty, earthly royalty) would read Different Shades of Gray. The answer is a loud NO. If you choose to read it, be afraid. Satan is real, just as Jesus is real, and he will meet you where you are weak. RUN…..

    Hi Mandy, I was curious to know of the photography editing website you spoke of not too long ago. I’m an avid photographer and am always interested in free editing websites. Thanks for your time, I love reading your blogs! And I wish you and your family the best of luck in your adoption process!

  14. Ann says

    Hi Mandy — I see you have a lot of bigger Canvas Wrap photo’s in your home. Where did you purchase them? On-line company or professional photographer? I need to purchase several for my home and needed some guidance. I love your blog!! I love your style!

  15. Alissa says

  16. Kasey says

    Hi! Love your blog! I was looking up some of your recipes on Pinterest & I came across the Chicken & Artichoke but the link doesnt follow me to the recipe, can you help me?


  17. Nadia Howard says


    I love your site! I was just curious where you get all your wall art from? and the stand up words that are around your house. I’m moving into an apartment soon and need decor!

    Thanks! :)

    Hey Mandy!
    I love your blog and all your home decor ideas! I recently watched one of your vlogs where you talked about the Emijay hair ties. Have you ever ordered them online and if so how long did they take to deliver to you?


  19. Theresa McKeel says

    Hi Mandy!!!! I absolutely love your home… it mirrors a lot of my style. I love that I have four your website! I have found so may ways to save money with the DIY projects you’ve posted. Being a military wife, its important to me to make each hose we live in our home with warm pieces ad you have helped me to do just that! Thank you!!

    I did have a question for you- perhaps a tutorial?

    When you were stenciling your closet, I noticed the large frame with that you use to hang your jewelry… did you make that? Can you tell me what you did? Or if purchased, where you purchased it from?! I absolutely love it!!!

    I love your blog. Your rooms are great my daughter loves your dining room. We were wondering where you got the rug in the dining room as we’ve painted the dining room your color and would love a rug like that. Keep up your blogging we enjoy it

  21. Nicole says

    Hi Mandy, I think I checked your source list, but I was wondering where your oven combo is from?


  22. says

    Hey Mandy!
    I just read the “The Imperfect Perfect You” and I just wanted to say thank you. I have been feeling really lost lately and this was just the thing that I needed. I just found you and your husband’s blog through the busy budgeting mama (Love her) blog. Thank you again for taking the time out to make other people feel better. :)
    Hugs, Hillary
