Spring Style for the Husband: A Search for the Perfect Watch

I have to laugh a bit when I read the title of this blog post. It’s not that my husband doesn’t dress nice, but is it stylish? I don’t know. He has his nice slacks and button up shirts + ties for work, but once that weekend hits it’s all jeans, t-shirts (probably with holes) and maybe some flannel. I am not complaining, though. I love it when he wears that flannel shirt right there.

So when we were looking for a watch to go with his “style” he needed it to be something that could easily go from his casual, and sometimes super casual, weekend wardrobe to his nice work outfits. I found this men’s watch from JORD and we both loved it. It’s nice enough to wear to work and perfect for his casual weekends. It’s such a unique watch and I think I’ll need one for myself. I used to wear watches before my phone turned into my clock, but I love the idea of getting back to wearing one of these beautiful watches everyday. They do have some beautiful women’s watches on their site.

I know it probably seems a little early to be searching for Father’s day gifts, but it will be here sooner than you think. If you loved the Conway JORD watch that I got for my husband, you can get 15% off this watch style through June 30th, 2017! You will be so ready for Father’s Day. Yay!

It is basically the perfect little gift. It comes in this amazing wooden box that HAS A PULL OUT DRAWER. My daughter may have already stolen the box and is keeping her favorite jewelry pieces in it.

New Barb Stranger Things Print in the Shop!

Hello friends,

I’m starting to put some prints up in the shop! So far the only print I have up is my Barb Home Girl print. I’m a HUGE fan of the Stranger Things show. So good. Barb was one of my favorite characters… even though she doesn’t last long in the series, she’s definitely the friend you want to have.

If you also love Barb: you can head on over to my shop and pick out a print for yourself, or your bff!

OMG, It’s Almost Easter! Favorite Easter Egg Creations!

Here are a few of my favorite Easter egg creations from the past few years. I wanted to share them with you guys again. I’m not sure what we will be doing this year… hmmm. Maybe we will make those family photo eggs again? Those were pretty fun to make.

Create these neat family photo fun Easter eggs. They are easy to make and fun for the family to put together.

These surprise eggs are so much fun! Create an Easter egg count down by making these Cascorones Easter Eggs. I should probably make these again.

These little succulent egg planters are the perfect hostess gift! I gave a couple of these egg plants 3 years ago to my mom and they are still alive and thriving. Check out how I made them here.

Floral Decopauge Easter Eggs are quick and fun to make.

Do you know how to blow an egg? If not, you should check out my tutorial. It’s pretty fun.

If you’re ready for Summer, even though it’s Spring, maybe you should make these lovely little Strawberry Easter eggs? Check out how I made them here.

You might need a snack while you’re coloring all those Easter eggs. You can create these cute chick boiled egg snacks.

What kind of Easter eggs are you making this year?

Our Tiny Home: Our Room Makeovers

Happy Wednesdays! I was getting ready to plan our next DIY update around the home and then I decided to wander through my blog and check out my past home DIYs for inspiration, so I thought today would be the perfect day to share all the little updates we’ve made to our home. It’s not a lot, but we are on our way to creating a well organized home.

We are definitely lacking in storage, so a few years ago we created a mini pantry in a tiny nook of the kitchen. Head on over to the Home Depot blog to see how we built this pantry!

Our front entry was SO boring and there was no where to store shoes, keys, or really anything you need by the door. So I fixed that problem by adding a little shoe storage and making the area pretty. Check out the front entry makeover here!

To add a little more organization and storage to the front entry I installed a cute coat rack to hang purses and other items across from the shoe storage. Check out the coat rack makeover here.

You might have seen this most recent makeover on the blog the other week. We FINALLY finished fixing up our fireplace and setting up our art wall. Head on over here to check out the art wall and here to see how we made the built in storage around the fireplace.

Coming soon: our baby room! We were so busy with the fireplace we haven’t finished a few things in the baby room. We didn’t really have a space to put our new baby, so we made a room for her out of the kitchen nook. We put up a wall and put up storage. We call it our Harry Potter room. Ha! To check out a sneak peak of the room you can head over here!
