American Dream Builders Giveaway!

Have any of you been watching the new NBC show American Dream Builders hosted by Nate Berkus? If you haven't checked it out yet, it's a must see! As some of you know I run a home staging and e-design business so I love all things 'home', 'DIY' and 'decorating'. :) I'm super excited today to have partnered with the show and Lowe's to give away a $50 gift card to one of my lucky readers here! 

I love the concept of this show because The American Dream Home is something everyone fantasizes about. Whether it’s a new closet, a larger family room, or simply a place to put all your stuff, there’s always something we want to change about where we live! I know I do! I have a list of things I'd love to update in our home which was built in 1959 complete with the original retro yellow fixtures and tile work in the bath room.

What if you could make your home into your Dream Home? AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS – a new show on NBC airing on Sunday at 8/7c – and L…

It's true what every parent tells you, the time goes fast so it's important to take in and cherish every possible moment. I feel as though there have been so many amazing moments that it's hard to pin-point my favorites and yet there is so much of the same day-to-day routine too that days turn into weeks and then months, it's kind of been a wonderful blur. I began wanting to document her first year by doing a weekly photo project for the first 52 weeks but that didn't work out. After week 11 I started to run out of pretty backgrounds for the pics and making…

Sunday's Thought...How a Classy Woman Conducts Herself

For all of us women of faith who strive to be our best self, it's important to remember that above all, we must be a light in this world by conducting ourselves in a Godly manner. It's in the weak moments when we're challenged by others and life's circumstances or feel tempted to go one way vs. another that people will be watching from the sidelines to see how we choose to respond. 

While we will never do it all perfectly and will make mistakes along the way, we must take a deep breath and remember the amazing God we serve. We must ask for His strength & guidance when making all decisions and also in how we reply and correspond with others. A prayer that I often pray is "Lord, order my steps and order my stops." I want to make sure that He is in the center of what I do and say, how I act/react, how I love others and make all of my decisions. Sometimes I become consumed with all that needs to be done and forget to include Him, especially with smaller, lesse…
