    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! I can’t believe fall is just around the corner. Who is ready for it? I am! Since we moved into our rental we have been very frugal about decorating since it is only temporary and we have a much smaller space. So I found these fall decor under $20 which are perfect for decorating small spaces. Check out how I decorated this seating area for fall below!

    August Life Update

    Hi friends!

    I can’t believe it’s already September. I haven’t been on the blog these past couple of weeks because I’ve been working on the backend of my blog. Lots of technical things that I still don’t quite understand but hoping it’s making a difference in the load speed. Everyday for the last couple months I’ve gotten attempts of hackers trying to hack into my site so I’ve also worked in adding extra protection to my site and cleaning out any malware. Plus this site will soon be getting a makeover, which I am so excited to finally get done.  So while that has been happening a lot has also happened in our life including Jayden starting first grade! It’s crazy to think that it’s a new school year. With a new school year we’ve also have some updates on current projects I’m working on plus house building updates. So read more below if you want to know what we’ve been up to lately in this August life update.

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! Today is the day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is open to the public. I have been shopping this sale for several years now and have found what is worth the splurge and also what will come back year after year so that you don’t have to go to crazy. This year my main focus was on shoes, hats, and comfy jackets and hats. Pieces I can wear year after year and get multiple uses out of. One reason I love the Nordstrom sale is the quality of the pieces that go on sale. I’ve had several pieces for years including their shoes and it still looks brand new. Check out what I purchased below!

    Buy Dirt – 7th Wedding Anniversary

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Today marks our 7th anniversary. If any song describes this year it would be the new song “Buy Dirt” by Jordan Davis. My friend introduced this song to me on our recent girl’s trip and she said it reminded her of me and Josh. If you listen to this song then you will understand why. This year we bought our dream farm and we are so excited for what the future holds. We can’t wait to raise our family there.

    6 Things To Know Before Selling Your  Own Home Without A Realtor

    selling house, no realtor, sale by owner, real estate, Texas

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing well! I had tons of questions on how we sold our own home without a realtor so I thought I would share with you six things helped us in selling our home over market value. I do want to say that having a realtor is very helpful when it comes to reading contracts, and just overall having a professional opinion. However, one of the main reasons I listed it myself was because the realtors I had spoken to would have listed it at market value versus what I thought it was worth. Thankfully I went against the market value and listed it over market value price, because not only did my house sell over market value price but way over asking price as well! So check out these tips below and 6 Things To Know Before Selling Your  Own Home Without A Realtor.

    Being A Baseball Mom

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are having a great week! Summer is here and Spring baseball season is officially over for the little guy. Watching him play for the past three years has honestly been awe inspiring to see him develop his skills and love for the sport. I still remember the day when he started walking and would carry a bat around with him like Bam Bam in the Flintstones. Jayden has always loved baseball from his very first game at three months old to now playing in little league. I never thought I would be a baseball mom, but here I am cheering my little guy on and I love it. Today I wanted to share some photos I took of his season and my thoughts about being a baseball mom below!
