Home Tour

Welcome to our lovely home where we constantly have naked children running around.



Hey, laundry is not my favorite past-time. If you have boys then you know that…clothes…are optional until you are five.

I try to keep my house fairly picked up and clean. You know, just in case you were to pop in and say hello.  But, my kids? I can’t always promise you they are “visitor ready”. In fact, they will most likely need 3 minutes to throw on some pants.

We built our home in 2010 and ever since…I’ve had my dad working on a constant Pinterest project. Pinterest…the devil. Ha!

Lucky for us, he is free labor. I wouldn’t have been able to do HALF of the stuff in our home if it weren’t for his free labor.

Free labor and my bargain shopping skills. Holla!

If you are curious as to where I got something please check the source links under each room. If your question is still not answered then feel free to comment below and I will do my best to reply.

As I mentioned, our home is a constant work-in-progress! I would just like to thank my husband for putting up with my 18 million ideas and more importantly, for footing the bill on those 18 million ideas.
