adidas House of Classics

Tuesday

Being a mother of three has made me shop intentionally. Gone are the days of impulsive shopping and going over budget. I guess it just comes with the experience. My needs are less of a priority and I prefer spending for my family than myself. I love seeing my kids happy and content even if that means I don’t get the latest dress or shoes. My style has changed, too. I prefer basics with plenty of mileage, roomy totes that can hold all the things I need, and shoes that I can comfortably walk (or run!) on for hours. Trust […]

Birthday party at Schlitterbahn Galveston

Tuesday

When your kid’s birthday is during the hottest season, hanging out in the water is the most ideal way to enjoy the party. My family and I are excited to be back at Schlitterbahn again since we had such a fun time last year! This summer we had the chance to enjoy our day at the waterpark with some of our friends as we celebrated our youngest son’s second birthday.  I partnered with Schlitterbahn on today’s post to share our experience and show how exciting it is to celebrate a birthday at Schlitterbahn!   Although “exciting” and “wonderful” are the first […]

Before and After: Our Entryway Makeover

Tuesday

BEFORE When we moved to our own new house, I was excited to have enough space in our entryway for a comfortable bench to sit on and space to store our shoes.  I thought it would be great if our bench could serve as both seating and storage.That’s why I decided to decorate our entryway with the help of Simpli home, who sent me this sturdy and fashionable storage bench for me to feature on today’s post. Simpli Home has tons of benches to choose from.   I chose their warm shaker entryway bench because it has everything I was […]

How I Fit Three Boys in One Room + Closet Organization

Sunday

  When we found out that our third son was another boy, we knew that all of our three boys would share one bedroom. We want them to grow up together in one room so that they would be close and learn to share (even though 3 boys in one room can get crazy at times 😉 As they’ve grown up they’ve become very close and are always playing and laughing. We’re so glad they’re building strong relationships and making great memories! If you have noticed on my Instagram, we have finally moved into our new house, which is the […]

DIY Storage Box for Your Home

Wednesday

DIY is something that is really close to my heart. The frugal crafter in me enjoys the process and the creativity that goes with it. The feeling of completing a project, no matter the size, is always an incomparable feeling. A few months ago, I shared my children’s playroom makeover featuring DIY storage boxes. The most challenging part was sorting all their toys! I’ve mentioned before that I think my kids have more stuff than me. And I can honestly say that it still rings true. With all their whatnots lying around the house, I decided to make my own […]
