Thank you ASUS for sponsoring this post. Home is where the heart is. And right now, it is where the whole family is, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Breakfast Nook Upgrade with Rooms To Go

Special thanks to Rooms To Go for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own. When you become a parent, you get all kinds of unsolicited “warnings”. Say goodbye to sleep! Your kid will only eat chicken nuggets from now on! Potty training is harder than you think! But no one warns you that your living space will no longer be your own. From the moment we brought my daughter home from the hospital four years ago, she has been the head of our roost. It didn’t matter how much I resisted, toys infiltrated and slowly overtook my house like …
