Reviewing My Elite Screens Media Room Screen

So I’ve been sharing a few tidbits here and there about our media room, and today I’m super excited to share with y’all my review of our media screen. I even created a short little video for you guys to check out in case you’re in the market for a screen yourself. And even if you’re not shopping for a screen, no worries! The video is also a mini tour of the space, so you can see what it looks like in “real life,” not just through pictures. Also – As you can see in the YouTube preview below, I make really awesome faces throughout. So worst case scenario, you can always make fun of me while you’re bored at work 🙂  Ok, so let’s get to it! One of the biggest challenges in our media room was finding a screen that would react well to natural light. Since…

Even if preppy/coastal isn’t your everyday style, it sure is fun to embrace seersucker and gingham during those hot summer months. Needless to say, I LOVE their new limited-time collection at Target that just dropped today. It’s super adorable and a perfect start to summer. AND it’s affordable. Sign me up, please. My absolute favorite item from the collection is that blue and white striped midi skirt. I WANT IT. When I saw the sneak peek back in April, I…

The Cutest Lemon-Patterned Dress You’ll Find For Just $20

2 Piece Lemon Dress  |  Rancher Hat  |  Boho Clutch I’ve been seeing so much of these lemon-patterned sets this season, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for just the right one. I wanted something that was affordable and comfortable all at the same time. Something I could wear on a date night, but also wear around the family and my kiddos. As I always do, I thought I would check Amazon to see if I could find anything worth buying, and that’s when I stumbled across this adorable 2-piece set. When I first got it in the mail, I thought “Ew, this looks cheap.” I wasn’t totally loving the polyester fabric, it was super wrinkled, and it came in a cheap-looking plastic bag. Overall, I just didn’t get the best first impression. I decided to go ahead and give it a chance and steam the wrinkles out and…

3 Must-Haves for a Media Room

If you read my recent post about our media room, you already know that it’s not exactly the “standard” media room that you normally see. I built it, not just so my husband could watch football or basketball, but for our entire family. I built it to be multi-functional. Hey, if you’re going to spend money on building out an extra room, you might as well make it as versatile as you possibly can, right? So here’s a little review from my last post… Last summer when Chad and I were choosing a floor plan for our new build, we  had a list of must-haves that we stuck to. One of the main features that was top on our must-have list was a media room. I didn’t want the stereotypical media room though. We have two young kids and making the space work for them AND us was very important.…

Wax Melts EIGHT – Tom Ford Perfume, Black Orchid NINE – Red KitchenAid TEN – Rose Gold DIFF Sunnies Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to share some of the items that I have personally on my own wish list and also some things I already have, and love. The single thing I love most on this list is pretty hilarious actually. My husband and I are avid fans of the gas station, Buc-ee’s. If you don’t know what I’m talking about (then shame on you — HA, kidding of course), but REALLY… It’s pretty much the coolest gas station ever. It’s massive, with locations all over the country,…

Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Coffee Maker Holiday Giveaway

Kids, work, a bad back, lack of sleep… you get it. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that faces LIFE every day. We all have our reasons for caffeine, and the busier life gets, the more reasons I have! Coffee became one of my best friends when I went to college. But coffee and I grew even closer after kiddos. We have like… a bond, you know? All kidding aside, when I was approached by Hamilton Beach to review their FlexBrew coffee maker, I was ecstatic. I had seen it in stores recently and wanted one so bad. My husband and I both work from home, so in the morning we share a pot of coffee, but the afternoons are different. One of us wants coffee, one of us doesn’t. But either way, we end up making an entire pot. It was starting to get annoying. I had…

A Summer Dress in December

GET THE LOOK: Yellow Dress (similar, similar, similar)  |  Black Leather Jacket  |  Mustard Yellow Faux Fur Bag  |  Wide-Brimmed Panama Hat  |  Mustard Yellow Tassel Earrings  |  Suede Booties Texas weather — I feel like that’s all I need to say sometimes! Some days it’s 70 degrees and sunny, some days it’s 20 and sleeting. You just never know. That’s why I love keeping some of my summer wear readily available, even when it’s winter. Summer maxi dresses are EVERYTHING to me, so getting to wear them all year around is huge. Simply pair it with your favorite bomber jacket, and your set. I found that adorable clutch at Target, and my panama hat is Target as well. What do you guys think? Am I the only one who keeps their summer gear near, even when it’s chilly out?

Fall Wardrobe: Changing a Look at the Drop of a Hat

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a hat girl. And I’m proud to say that my third grade school picture can prove it. I wore a massive Blossom-inspired denim hat with a cranberry colored faux floral smack dab on the front. Hats weren’t allowed in school, so I had to pack it in my backpack and wear it only for the picture. I. felt. so. cool. Fast forward a few decades and although my style has changed, my love for hats hasn’t. There were a few years in my twenties that I thought I wasn’t “stylish enough” to “pull off” a hat, but after two kids and my twenties in my past, I pretty much don’t give a crap. I like hats. So I’m going to wear hats. Lots of them, in fact! Today I’m sharing how three hats can completely change the look of one outfit. I love…

Kid Style: Transitioning From Summer to Fall

These kiddos. Man. They just kill me! They’re at such a fun age (they’re 1 and 2) and I’m just loving each and every stage we’re experiencing with them. Well, minus those lovely tantrums of course. We recently moved cities (you can read more about that here) and have been exploring our new hood over the last few weeks. The weather has been it’s normal bipolar self here in Texas, so each week has been completely different. Rain for 2 weeks straight, 80 degrees one day, then 48 the next. Just lovely! Right? Today I wanted to share a bit of my kiddos style and talk about how I’m transitioning their summer outfits into fall outfits. For Harper, I love using summer dresses for fall and simply carrying around a sweater for her in case the nights get a little chilly. I also tend to use Hudson’s summer Ts for…
