If you’ve been following me for awhile, you may know I tend to be a thrifty mama and love a lot of bang for my buck. One super easy way to get it is by thrifting at the Salvation Army. Many items in my house are from “The Sally” as I like to call it […]
The post below is sponsored by Tanger Outlets Howell. All opinions expressed belong to me. October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the ‘Think Pink’ movement have come a long way as I’ve grown.

Whether it’s reading to your children, having them read to you, or discussing a book on a plane with a stranger, books bring people together. However, 26 percent of American adults admit to not cracking a book during the past year. I can’t be the only one super sad about that statistic, right? I have a […]
When I found out I was having a second baby girl, I decided to re-use the decor I had for my first baby girl. I didn’t want to spend the money for a fancy nursery that I knew she’d outgrow in two years. …But then time got away from us, and I put off re-doing […]
The post below is sponsored by At Home. All opinions expressed belong to me. I’ve always been a Christmas purist — classic green tree, classic red and green only. My decor style hasn’t wavered much during the past 10 years of owning homes. I know what I like, that’s for sure! But each year passes, […]
I received a Bundle free of charge for this review. All opinions expressed are my own. I’m loving the movement to pare down holiday gift giving to experiences and local products.

I received a T-shirt in exchange for the post below. Normally I wouldn’t do a sponsored post for JUST a T-shirt…But this one is THAT awesome. A few years years back I wrote about The Home T — a T-shirt company that has grown rapidly over the past few years and even been featured on Shark Tank. When […]
If you’ve been following me awhile, you may know have a slight obsession with repurposing and painting things to make them like new again. I recently tackled a budget-friendly kitchen makeover and wanted to share our results in a real and not completely Pinterested fashion in case you’re interested in doing the same. The kitchen is the heart of […]
Motown has a new legend to add to its legion of superstars, but this time it’s in doll form. Friends, meet Melody, the newest American Girl historical BeForever character.
