Small Porch Sitting Area



Hi friends! I took a vacation for a couple of weeks but I am so happy to be back at home and back to blogging...yay!!!  I feel like I have been in a slump lately but when I arrived at home, I had this metal sign in the mail from FITZ Fabrications...and it completely inspired me to spruce up our back deck! FITZ Fabrications is a small business here in Oklahoma so I am super excited to have been able to collaborate with them. They have many, many metal signs available on their website and can even do customs!

DIY Road Trip Kits for Kids




Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by today! My family travels quite often and we love taking road trips! If you're like me, you will do anything to keep your sanity while traveling with children. We have three girls under the age of 10 and let's just say they like to pester one another...especially on road trips! Each trip, I like to surprise the girls with little goodie bags full of things to keep them busy during the drive. They absolutely love this! One of their favorite parts of any trip we take is getting in the car the morning of and finding their travel gifts. I know it may seem a bit extreme to some to give them gifts before the trip but for me...it's worth the few hours of peace from keeping them busy!

Black Olive Wallpaper from BohoWalls

Hi friends! It's probably no surprise by now that I put up wallpaper in yet another room! But...when I came across this beautiful Black Olive Wallpaper from BohoWalls on Etsy, I knew just the space I wanted to put it. Let me show you the before picture of this wall walking into our kitchen first.

Dining Room Wall Makeover with Woodwaves Inc.



Hi friends! I am so excited to finally show you guys what I have been working on. For about three years I have had a huge double bookcase in my dining room...I loved the bookcase but it just wasn't working as it was way too big for the small space. Here is what the bookcase and wall looked like below...

Little Heart Company Wooden Hearts




I recently came across the cutest company on Instagram! It's no lie I am obsessed with girls room decor so when I seen the little cactus heart made by Little Heart Company I fell in love! She was so kind and sent me three little hearts to use around my house. I've shared a few pics below of where I put them in my home!

Removable Wallpaper from Wall Pops


Hi friends! My older two girls shared bedroom is a room that I have been wanting to change up for awhile now. After competing Sadie's (my youngest daughter) room for the One Room Challenge last fall, (found HERE) I've been itching to get started on this room. My husband and I put up wallpaper in Sadie's room and it's one of my favorite things ever! I knew I wanted to put up wallpaper again so I found Wall Pops. Wall Pops has a wallpaper called "NuWallpaper" and it's completely removable. Meaning you can peel it off and stick it back on super easily! Both of my girls have a very, bright floral comforter on their beds so I knew I wanted to go with something pretty muted. I chose this white and grey pattern called "Gray Woods" and oh my gosh...it's even more beautiful in person than in the pictures! The best part...my daughters love it! My oldest daughter, Emma, is actually very picky so this felt like a win! 

Shutter Doors in the Dining Room


Hi friends! I wanted to share with you a little update that I did in my dining room! I've been wanting to add something else to the wall on the sides of my milk glass shelf for awhile now...well I found the perfect shutter doors to put there! As some of you may know, I have a booth at Mile High Designs in Sand Springs. These shutter doors were there and as soon as I seen them I knew I had to have them! Here is what they looked like before.


I loved the distressed color they were but I wanted them to be apart. I unscrewed the hinges, gave them a quick wipe down and they were ready to go!


I hung these prints, that I had on the wall already, on to the shutter part of the door.


I love these prints from Volume Twenty Five.  The bison is one of my favorite animals so I try to incorporate it in my home whenever I can. I also love this "Antler Study" from Vol25.






I am absolutely in love with how they look in my dining room! I would love to know your thoughts below. Thanks for stopping by!


Unicorn Birthday Party


OK...I think I need to confess before sharing my daughter's unicorn themed birthday party.  I may have chose the unicorn theme more for me than I did for her....BUT...she loved all of it! I had so much fun planning and creating this party for her. I used a lot of DIY's I found on other blogs which helped a ton in the cost. I shared all of the sources I can below in the post and I have included a "shop the party" link at the bottom.

**Post contains affiliate links.


I am still kicking myself for not getting a picture of the completed table with my rainbow cupcakes on it. Some of the things I made myself were the glitter tulle skirt, the rainbow tassel banner, the print in the frame, the headbands, and the tags for the party favors. The glitter, tulle skirt was super easy to make! I found the glitter tulle at Walmart in rolls but I have found a set on Amazon you can find HERE. Be prepared to find glitter for weeks though! The tassel banner was made from tissue paper. I just bought multiple colors from the dollar store and found a tutorial  HERE. The gold dot banner I also found on Amazon and have linked them HERE.


I absolutely love this unicorn head and the best part is I can use it as decor in her bedroom. I found a similar one HERE. I had this frame already in my daughter's room. It was actually a mirror and I took the mirror out for the party. The little, paper rose garland was from the dollar spot in Target awhile back.








I made this little "unicorn fur" cutout on PowerPoint and printed it to tape on the top of this three tiered stand. I filled these mini, snack cups (found HERE) with cotton candy.









I had a really simple set-up for the kids table. I used pastel paper plates in alternate colors that I found super cheap at Walmart.



Probably my favorite thing at the party were these plush, little unicorns I used as party favors. I found them from Oriental Trading Co.  I believe they come in sets of 12.


Again, using PowerPoint, I made these little party favor tags to wrap around the unicorns.


I found a tutorial (found HERE) for the felt part of these unicorn headbands, then bought some plastic, white headbands from Amazon to glue them onto. (Headbands found HERE)  I found some gold bow wire at Walmart for less than a dollar to wrap around them.



I love these rainbow cups I found HERE for the kids to use! They can also take them home with them after the party.


Another DIY for the party was this printable I created. I already had the white frame so I displayed it on the table for decoration.



I made these rainbow cupcakes from another tutorial I found HERE. They in no way look as good as the ones from the tutorial I found...but they were delicious anyway!



My local grocery store had these purple and turquoise flowers that I thought were perfect for a unicorn party! 


So I have this amazing best friend who happens to be awesome at making sugar cookies. She made me these unicorn themed cookies for Sadie's party and they are beyond cute!! Thank you Shelby @ Sweetlings Cookies!



I love the little gold, glitter details!



 I put some twisty, rainbow suckers in a milk glass jars on the table as well. 



Sadie had the best birthday! She definately loved every minute of it.
