I was so excited when Joe came to me asking organizing advice. Then I found out what he needed help with. Wine. Yes, I love to drink wine, but I have NO idea how to organize it. By year, type, vineyard, color?? As the wine connoisseur in our family (not that there was much competition), fortunately Joe figured out how to sort the wine in the wine racks. But then he came asking for wine…

Do you have a friend, loved one, or family member who is all about organizing? Or are YOU that person? I’ll admit, I’m not a huge gift giver. Over the years Joe & I have even stopped giving each other Christmas and birthday gifts, mostly because we buy what we know we want throughout the year when we need it (or when it’s on sale 🙂 ). But although Joe & I don’t typically give…

This post was sponsored by Hobby Lobby! A beautifully decorated table is such an easy way to spruce up the home for Christmas. I like to keep ours festive but with more neutral colors that go with our style of our home. Designing a Christmas oriented tablescape allows you to incorporate items you already have in your kitchen with some fun additional decorations. The photo below shows you the items I stocked up on for…

Every year I envision lots of time in between Halloween & Christmas and every year without fail I find myself without ‘enough’ time. It’s not like I lose days each year, but Halloween SEEMS so far away from Christmas. Until it’s not. This year I’m a lot more intentional about how I’m preparing and managing my time through the holidays. It’s a good thing because we decided to host Christmas this year for friends and…

Awkwardly short pants make me cringe. So much so that I can barely look at this photo above. I was cringing the entire time I put on these pants and took the photo. Being tall (5’10”), I’ve forever had a paranoia about my pants being too short. I even started doing my laundry in elementary school just to ensure my parents didn’t accidentally shrink my pants in the wash. (Now that I’m older I’m realizing…

I’m excited to share a fun little project that had been on my mind for a while … especially since I un-optimistically expected a 50-50 chance that this would go as planned. Well it did (thank goodness!) and has made me so happy every time I open the drawer. Let me explain …. we’ve got a couple grilling supplies that are so long they need to be placed diagonally in our kitchen drawer. That’s totally…

Anytime I’m off doing errands I ALWAYS have my headphones in. Whether a podcast or old school Brittany Spears, I’m always listening to something. Once I get home it becomes the million dollar question: “WHERE did I place my headphones?” At the bottom of my purse? Near Reagan’s leash? Near my keys in my entry way? No matter what organizational system I used, apparently I couldn’t wrangle in my headphones. Not only did I panic every time…

This post was sponsored by Annie Selke as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. Whenever (aka – not every day) I make my bed, it just looks messy. Not like a toddler made it, but it never had that clean new look like a hotel bed does. So after over examining my hotel rooms on a couple recent vacations and photographing the beds 🙂…
