Welp. Moving and work got the best of me. I have been on a short hiatus from writing. My notebook got a few visits but nothing blog worthy. Instead, I have been using my spare time trying to adjust to my new schedule. My down time has involved relaxing and spending my time focused on my family. I do have a few ideas for future topics and projects, though! Bright colors, fabric, canvas, and thread will be playing big roles in my future!! Its time to get crafty and artsy! Try to stick with me a little longer and maybe some fun stuff will be coming your way!

For now though, here is a bit of whats been happening: 
    • New Job - Yup. I finally landed a job! And so far its been great!! I work with kiddos in their first year at school which is HILARIOUS! These little ones are quite inspiring, silly, talkative, and have so much freaking energy! I'm pretty sure they are stealing it ALL from me!
    • School - My oldest is now a kindergartener. He has been for two weeks now and I am still uncertain how I feel about it. He is so excited to learn and see new friends that he wakes up a half hour before he needs to (which totally messes with my morning routine). I love seeing him so happy about school. But then there is the fact that he is getting So. Dang. BIG!!!! Where did my lil babe go?!
    • Relaxing - This consists mostly of baseball games, baseball park food, netflix, ice cream, wine, and games with friends! The creators of Cards Against Humanity are equally the Best and the Worst human beings on Earth. If that doesn't make sense, go play and it will. 
First day of School for him and work for me

A dog and beer at a ball game is the BEST!

My date for life!

The best and most evil game!!

Daddy at bat!

Sorry for the lack of new posts this last week or so. Its been a bit of mess and chaos around here, because we finally got to move into our own place on Saturday!!
After a year of living with parents and the husband traveling all over, we are finally in one place with just our little family. The kitchen is mine! The master bedroom is ours! And the kids finally get to play with the toys that have been hidden away in storage! (Seriously though, they were opening boxes yelling, "SANTA VISITED!!!").

How do I know I am a domestic woman? I am ridiculously
excited for this laundry room!!


Crap. Our stuff is here and I have to unpack and organize it all...

First room unpacked. Again, just shows how domesticated
 I have become that I chose the kitchen first!!

We still have a lot of unpacking, rearranging, and decorating to make it our home. My Pinterest account is going crazy with the decor inspiration. I want light and color and storage

Do y'all have any clever storage or decorating hacks to share? This girl could use some affordable ideas!
