My Wish List from the Container Store

IMG_2256

Happy day!  They've finally opened up the Container Store in my local area.  I went for a blogger luncheon and visit last week to scope out the new store and all it did was inspire me to get more organized in my house.  Which is a good thing, trust me.  It's also a good thing there are places like the Container Store that make it easy to get … [Read more...]

For this week's Pinspiration, I'm bringing back an oldie but goodie.  I was perusing Pinterest last year and came across a cool way to organize all of your child's school papers.  It may not seem like much that first year or two of preschool, but add several years into the mix and all the memorabilia and art work you are saving will pile up.  I was … [Read more...]

We recently updated all of our bedding in Cole's (7) room to bedding from the Company Store.  Previously, we had a big Pottery Barn quilt.  It was cute but he was always SO hot, even in the winter.  By the end of the night, all covers would be kicked off and he would end up cold and eventually walking into our room. Seriously, this kid hasn't … [Read more...]

Pulled a quick video off my tv of my feature on QVC last week! I had posted that some pictures from my closet makeover were going to be featured on Jill Martin's segment on QVC but I wasn't sure what photos they would use or in what capacity - here it is!

41KEODhbPVL

While I'm thankful that I personally don't suffer from seasonal allergies, my house has two victims of seasonal allergies every fall - my hubby and my youngest son.  Neither of them seem to like the grass and pollens that fly around outside during the fall and someone always seems to be reacting.  Hubby gets a runny nose for week and my son gets … [Read more...]

Instagram is totally cool and I love snapping photos and using it. And I have often thought about the fact that I'll snap a really cool photo here and there and then do nothing with it. It'll eventually disappear into the archived folders of my Instagram account never to be seen again. Problem solved: StickyGram! I adore these little magnets that … [Read more...]

Apparently there's some serious grossness in my kitchen.  I found this out via a study I did with Bounty.  I had to use a random cloth dishtowel for three days and not wash it.  I sent it to the folks at Bounty to analyze the germs and items left on the towel and no one's going to be surprised to hear there were all sorts of disgusting germy … [Read more...]
