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.

Fancy Getting Into Real Estate? Here Are 3 Things To Consider

Photo by Mark McCammon from Pexels So you’re a homeowner, you’ve made it this far, put your own personal stamp on your place and are quietly pleased with all that you have achieved, but what next?

Ultimate Holiday Gift: LG Dishwasher with QuadWash & TrueSteam

Thank you LG for sponsoring this post. Before I had a family, I envisioned leisurely holidays sitting by the fire, drinking hot cocoa and reminiscing about the good times. Now that I have a family of my own, the reality is quite a different picture… 99% of my holidays are spent doing the dishes! By the time I have washed and dried the festive lunch plates, it’s time to whip out utensils for the night’s holiday dinner. The cycle never ends! That is until a hero recently waltzed into my life, like a very clean, well-behaved bull in a spotless …

Early Black Friday Steal: Columbia Bedding at Kohl’s

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s, but all opinions are entirely my own. The turkey has not even been taken out to thaw yet, but you are already in full holiday shopping mode. Same, friend, same. By this time of November, I am usually completely done with all my Christmas shopping. But I still have one person left on the list to buy for… the ever elusive husband species. He’s quiet, he’s discerning, and he insists that he does not need anything. Ugh! Why do they always do that?! Luckily for me, Black Friday has come early to Kohl’s and …

Home & Design: Crystal Chandelier Fan

As a first-time homeowner, I have a lot of interior design dreams. Replace the carpet with hardwood floor! Gut the guest bathroom and reconfigure the layout! Enclose the patio with in a French greenhouse design! So many dreams, so little money. So instead, I am focusing on the smallest changes with the most impact. And one small change that can completely transform a room is the lighting. With the help of my lovely friends at Parrot Uncle, I am adding a bit of icing on top of my master bedroom cake with their gorgeous Crystal Chandelier Ceiling Fan. Like any …
