Lately....


Hi! I know its been awhile since I have been around... so I thought I would share some recent I phone pics and catch you up a little bit.

We have been doing pretty good, but having said that a lot going on too;) We thought we were going to sell our house a few weeks ago and build a new one or buy something else, so after all that stress and craziness we decided to just stay put. I have too been adjusting to working a couple days a week and am really liking it! I just am one of those moms that starts to go a little nuts after awhile being home all the time and needs to get out of the house . I have always liked to work and have my own little thing going. Sooo having said that I keep going back and forth about blogging and wish that I could be more consistent with it! I feel like one week I like it and the next I just don't, and frankly I just get tired of the blogging world and all the Instagramming and Facebook and this and that. And besides that I love clothing and style and always have , and doing a style blog, but seriously the amount of blogs out there doing the same thing is craziness, and I just don't want my life to evolve around the next thing I'm going to buy to wear.  I almost feel like everyone is wearing the same stuff anyways.. Its crazy to think where in the world do these girls get the money for this stuff??  I do though believe in buying clothing and shoes that are classic and that you can wear for years. I will spend money on those things when I can, or love even to find them gently used.
So I guess what I am trying to say is I almost feel better if I just put the device down for a few days or a week and just concentrate on other things. Everyone is so materialistic these days and I think that I worry about adding to that at times. I  know sometimes how it makes me feel when I look at these blogs, like I just don't have enough or I need more, And I just don't like how that makes me feel, and don't want to make other people feel that way. So I try to keep things simple and affordable but still in tune with the current trends. I mostly buy things when they are on sale or clearance, and I have been better about posting more on Instagram.  Maybe I am thinking too much about it?? Lol! But I keep telling myself that if I could just get something in once a week at least for my family and for something that we could have to look back on that would be great! So I will work on that!

 I started working again 2-3 days a week and am loving it! Doing this and having three kiddos and trying to do everything else has its challenges. My health had also been an issue the last couple of years, and am happy to say that we have finally figured it out with a awesome new doctor! I had been really having a hard time doing much of anything let alone trying to be just there for my family. But I did find out that I have chronic fatigue syndrome. But the plus side to that is that we know the cause and things are getting better! I am still having ups and downs but I am hoping this year will be a better year! I will probably too do a post on this and what I have gone through and what we have found out because I think there are a lot of people out there looking for a answer to some of their health problems ,and this might just be what you are looking for. So

 Hi there! Hope you are having a great week;) Express is having %50 off everything in their store right now, so I thought I would stop by this week and see what they have goin on!




I don't normally shop there that much anymore..I just pop in probably a couple times a year. I use to wear their stuff all the time, then it was like all my friends had their stuff on all the time too..lol.
I actually found a lot of cute things so I will be showing you more here soon.






 
I am just loving these pearl earrings from there too! I have them on with both of these outfits. Also this midi skirt has pockets! Love that!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Our new Acacia hardwood floor in the kitchen!


   Hi! I know I have been a horrible blogger... planning on changing that here soon!
I wanted to show you though the kitchen floor that we just redid! We are so glad it is finally over! What a project between trying to figure out what we wanted to do in here, how much money we wanted to spend, ect. The floor before was horrible and was coming apart all over the place. It was not done in the right place, so that just made it look even worse and have more problems. (No we did not do it). It was Pergo, and I think if it had been done right the first time it would of had been fine, but ever since we had put this Acacia wood floor in our entry way and office, we knew we wanted more of it, but it is expensive! So we himed and hawed about it forever and we just decided to do it and have a even look through the main floor of the house. And actually right after we bought our floor I saw over at Lowe's or maybe it was Home Depot tile floor that looks just like this! Could not believe it! It really looked good for tile floor, but we bought our wood and decided to just go with it and get her done. We have no regrets.




                                                         Acacia wood floor in Tobacco Road from Lumber Liquidators
                                                                                 Tile floor from Home Depot

This is in our laundry room that we also redid the floor. I just love the two together! I am still workin on this room but will show when its done;)
We absolutely love this wood floor and would do it all over again! We did have our guy add some kind of water proofing around certain areas to block out and water or spills, so that makes me feel a lot better about that. Did not even know that you could do that. I also just absolutely LOVE how this floor hides everything! With three kiddos and a little dog that tracks in stuff all the time, the floor still looks great and hardly ever looks dirty. Dirt and stuff seems to blend in just fine..lol Who's got time for mopping??
So now we are debating whether or not to put it through the living room and then our main floor will be all wood. But our living room is around 460 sf, so it will be pretty expensive, but buying the wood on sale does help like we have with the other two rooms. It would be so pretty and I would not have to worry about keeping carpet clean down here anymore. So we shall see. I will keep you guys updated. What do you think?
