It’s been 2 years and 3 months. 2 incredibly hard, long years that we have been working for this day. Today, August 17 2018, we moved in. The house isn’t done and most everything is still in storage, but today we started. We got most of the girls stuff today and will get the big stuff tomorrow and Sunday. We don’t have a kitchen, we don’t have hot water, but we have a home and each other. The kitchen will be put together soon and hot water even sooner. The girls are over the moon excited and couldn’t wait to get their things in their own rooms and pictures hung on the wall (check my stories). I have already been FLOODED with direct messages.... I’ve never gotten so many. I will respond to every one of you, I promise. Your kind words, support, encouragement and friendship mean more than I can ever say. Some of you have been around from the beginning and seen it all and quite a few of you are new faces that I am excited to get to know more. Thank you all for everything. ❤️🏡💜 #bestdayever
Finally it’s FRIDAY!! And I’ve never been more ready. 😜 •
Bonus, my hubby will be off Saturday and Sunday for a change. 🙌🏼 •
I finally got the pictures hung on the ladder gallery wall & rearranged/de-cluttered it a bit. I’m pretty happy with it! • *swipe & tap to see 2 of my favorite small shop pieces (tagged @compassrisinghandcraft wood burning of my mama’s handwriting & old barn/shed photo by @graceinmyspace ) check them out! •
Happy Friday, friends! We have a weekend full of gatherings - tomorrow I’m hosting a Pampered Chef party - can’t wait, I love PC! & then Matt will be smoking ribs for dinner tomorrow evening for his parents & us!

Hi friends!! I’ve been a little MIA this week because I went on my very first camping trip with my family. This in itself is laughable because I’m a makeup and hair girl. I highlight/contour, straighten my hair and wear perfume er’yday. You wanna know what’s not laughable? Leaving camp in a rush in the pouring rain after spending 30 minutes in a storm shelter in Hoosier National Forest because there was a tornado warning. You can’t make this stuff up😂. I have dug my way out of the mountain of muddy bedding, cloths and towels the last 2 days though so there’s that! Anywhoo I’ll just be here snuggling my mascara and trying to forget😂😂😂. I hope you’ve had a great week!!
I hung my botanical prints above my bed and I am going to call my bedroom a wrap! Simple and sweet 👌🏻.
In other news, we are being inundated by 🐛 ‘s. At least 15 a day have snuck their way under my back door and I find them butt’s up in my living room rug 😂. I guess trying to bury themselves 🤷🏼♀️. Thank goodness my rug doesn’t have a deep pile or I would have quite the caterpillar farm and come a few months, a butterfly garden!!
This weekend is going to be a busy one!! We are putting on our kitchen hardware, hall tree hooks, and hopefully getting our garage straight. What are your plans?!
