DIY POLKA DOT ART

Lately, I have been thinking about ways to decorate my home without photos of hubby and I everywhere.  Simple, modern art that makes an impact and at a minimal cost (this project was actually FREE since I already had all of the supplies).  I found this photo on pinterest and thought, what a creative idea! source Though I really liked the gold coloring, we don't have any gold decor in our home.  So, I looked to see what types of scrapbook paper I had in my paper stash and found shiny silver and glittery silver paper.  One sheet of each actually.  Perfect!
What you'll need: Frame of any size. I used an 11x14 frame and with the matting it became 8x10.Poster board to fit into the opening of the frame.1" round hole punchScrapbook paper of any kind.  I kept the same color scheme but the options are unlimited.Glue stick. Directions: Cut your poster board to fit into the frame, or the matting, depending on what size you will be using.Place your matting over top of the poster board so y…

CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR 2013

The weekend after Thanksgiving, Jesse and I ventured out into the cold and cut down our Christmas tree.  Since then, we haven't really had a chance to do much home decorating until now!  And I'm excited to continue the annual Christmas Home Tour this year!  This is one of our favorite times of the year and we are so thankful to be able to share it with the ones we love.  We actually decided to keep it much simpler this year as we had gotten rid of a lot of decorations after Christmas last year and decided to keep the decorations on the main floor this go around (Family Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, and Powder Room).  Less is more.  Make yourself a cup of hot cocoa, turn on the Christmas music, have a seat and enjoy this little home tour!

Update:  So, I started this post in December, but here we are February and I am just now uploading the photos.  Better late than never right!?!  Enjoy!
And a little bathroom decor...
Let's not forget the tree!  For whatever reason, I couldn&…

AFTER A THREE MONTH HIATUS...

I'm back!!  Hi my lovely readers!  So sorry for the lack of posting lately but it has just been crazy!  Instead of writing 17 new posts, I will write 1 and share through photos.  Sorry in advance for the picture overload.

The hubby and I were invited (by my employer) to the Saints Gala Benefit put on by the St. Charles Foundation in November.  It's pretty rare that we get to get gussied up and wear fancy clothes, but I was beyond thrilled to see my husband in a suit!!  Don't get me wrong, I love my man in his Carharts...but there is just something about a man in a suit!  So I caved and bought him two! Below is the clinical team I'm a part of and then the larger group with spouses and significant others.
We went miniature golfing and the husband beat me.  I have played golf since I was 7 years old and he whooped me.  But did you see on the back 9 I kind of got better?  Just takes me a round or two to warm up.  Oh yeah...and he got a hole in one.  Show off.
