TOP 10 FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MOVIES

December 21, 2020

I love this time of year and all the cozy, movie watching sessions with a cup of hot chocolate by the twinkle lights of the tree. These are my top 10 and honestly I could switch a couple of them out for the honorable mentions listed below. So many good ones make it hard to narrow down!


CANDIED PECANS, MY GO-TO HOMEMADE GIFT

December 15, 2020

One of my go-to gifts are these candied pecans. They are always a hit with family and Jeremy’s coworkers. (I’m not sure how many people outside of our family we will give these to this year since people are extra freaked out...🤷🏼‍♀️ But this is definitely something you should keep in your back pocket!😉)



WHOLE HOUSE LIGHTING PLAN FOR $1,800

November 30, 2020

I was really excited to pick out lighting for our new house but I quickly realized it was going to take a little research. Our builder allowance for lighting was $1800 and this was one area I did not want to go over budget since lighting is something we can easily switch out/upgrade down the line if we decide to but I honestly am happy with everything I selected even if it's my second, third, or ninth choice.😅 


I surprisingly came in under budget (thanks to the discount our builder gets at Lowes) at $1,166.25 but even without the discount I still came in around $1,800 which I'm pretty proud about. All of the selections below are from Lowes and Amazon.







THE BOYS SHARED BEDROOM PLANS

November 5, 2020


Things are starting to feel very real over at our house on Oakridge (I finally decided on a name/hashtag). Once the drywall went up it totally transformed the place. The first time I saw it I teared up. I'm just so thankful for this beautiful house and the memories we will make there. I am so anxious to move in! In the meantime, I'm having fun coming up with plans for the rooms. First up, the boys shared room. It's one of the first spaces I want to have completed. We will have moved three times by the time the boys are in this room. I want to get it set up and feeling like home as soon as possible.
