  • Savannah’s Modern Ranch House: Girls Whimsical Bedroom

    The day has come!! I have been DYING to share my girls bedroom with all of you and today is the day for the final reveal!! For my girls room I wanted it to be very whimsical and playful and I think that’s exactly what I achieved. Before I show you the final reveal let me show you the before picture. It was a very very plain room with brown carpet. When we first moved in we had a million projects going on so the kids room sat with just the beds for about two weeks. I knew I wanted the kids rooms to be done as part of their Christmas gift. The first thing I got for the girls room was this amazing mural by Bari J. she is such amazing artist and she happens to be local in Arizona. I have seen her work in many different places including the cutest phone cases ever at Anthropologie. You all know how much I love a accent wall and I wanted something epic in my girls room and I believe…

  • 13 Quick and Easy Bathroom Organization Tips

    January means full fledge organizing mode right? Time to purge, organize, declutter and clean! I always get the urge to get my home in order after the holidays. I’m going to be working on my bathroom makeover (phase 1) this week. I have big plans for my full bathroom renovation but that won’t be for a few months so I’m going to try a few temporary techniques (like I did for our master bathroom in our last house!) for upgrading our bathroom to make it look fresh and updated without spending a bunch of money until #demoday comes! Mostly I’m repainting everything existing just until we begin the full renovation. We plan on expanding our bathroom to gain space for a bathtub and some more storage. Until then, I’ll be using these organization tips to utilize the space we have! PS. Did you catch our kids bathroom renovation and reveal? It’s one of my favorites!

  • Summer Must Haves

    Hey everyone! Here in Arizona the heat in the summer is a killer. We spend most of the summer in the pool. No joke, this week it is going to be 118 degrees. Its just so crazy HOT! Swimsuits are a must have for us in the summer. Each year I will normally get like 2-3 new suits and wear them all the time. Since I spend so much time in the pool I don’t mind spending a little more money on a swim suit. These are a few swim suits that I am loving right now. Now can we talk about beach and pool cover ups. We are loving these Kimono! They are great for a quick and colorful cover up over any swimsuit. Now can we talk about beach and pool wear. We are loving these Kimono for a quick and colorful cover up over any swimsuit. Now on to our day to day clothes. We are always wanting really easy and lightweight clothing in the summer since we live here and it’s so hot . So nice cool…

  • Star Wars Kids Bedroom

    This room reveal is sponsored by American Furniture Warehouse but all the opinions are my own.   You guys!!! I am so excited to share my little boys room with you today. To say that he is obsessed with his new room is a bit of an understand. My three-year old little boy Ryder LOVES Star Wars. I wanted to give him a themed room with out it being to “cheesy” and I really think that Mallory and myself nailed it. The first thing that I bought for his new big boy room was his headboard. I wanted the headboard to be classy and timeless and when I found this headboard from American Furniture Warehouse I knew it was perfect. What I love about the headboard is that it totally gives the room a very rich and sophisticated feel to the room, especially with a themed room that was really important to me. I LOVE American Furniture Warehouse. I am lucky enough to have one about 20 mins from my house and whenever I am looking for a new piece of…

  • Easy DIY Lego Table

    My kids are dead serious obsessed with Legos. I mean, most boys are. For Christmas this year, I decided to build them a Lego table. Out of sheer being in a hurry status, I did the simplest Lego table known to man and it’s been a huge hit at our house. Supplies: Ikea Lack Coffee Table (6) – 10″ Lego Base Plates Hot Glue Gun + hot glue Okay so here’s the deal. Measure to find the center of your table. Start in the center and hot glue the middle two baseplates to the center. Glue your outside pieces on and…. done! Told you, easiest project ever. I was worried about the hot glue but I was literally doing this at 2am so it was out of convenience and a month later, our table has held up great! Even if it comes up a tad, you can always hot glue it down a bit. We used the shelf that came on it and glued lego bricks to it then used it for a place to hang their minifigures. The Lego table…

  • What to Wear During Pregnancy

    This post was sponsored by Motherhood Maternity® through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about my visit to Motherhood Maternity, all opinions are my own. Getting cute, comfortable, well-priced maternity clothing and finding clothes that are similar to your     pre-pregnancy style can be tough. But I found the perfect solution; I was lucky enough to be able to partner up with Motherhood Maternity to pick out some awesome maternity clothes that I have loved this pregnancy. Two weeks ago, I went to my local Motherhood Maternity which happens to be only about ten minutes from my house and went shopping to get clothes that I feel really great in. I had such a great experience in the store with the employees. They were both very kind and extremely helpful and very sensitive to me and my needs. I explained to them what my day-to-day life was like and they were able to help me pick out everything I would need. One of my favorite items that I got was this very comfortable little black dress…

  • Halloween Costume Ideas: Girly Clown Costume

    Materials leotard 2 skeins of yarn (yellow and pink) yarn pom pom maker scissors tights or leg warmers arm bands/gloves 110 yards of tulle 1 yard of thick elastic (waistband) top hat headband sparkle pom poms (mixed colors) feather embellishments suspenders Instructions: For this this costume we started out with a basic pink ballet leotard and embellished the entire thing. First, we used our pom pom maker to make different colored pom pom balls out of yarn (2 yellow, one pink) and stitched them to the bodice of the leotard straight down the middle. Next, we started the tutu. First we measured Millie’s hips and made a circle out of the elastic for her waistband. Stitch the two ends of the elastic together to make a circle. Next, we created the tulle skirt. We used 110 yards of 8″ strips of tulle. They came on these handy rolls. It was definitely a full skirt but we could have even used more tulle. We cut the roll into 24″ strips. This length will be half the length of the skirt. So 24″ strips…

  • Cleaning and Nesting before Baby

    I partnered with Maids.com to share my tips for cleaning and nesting before the new baby comes. I am pregnant with baby number 4 and I am beyond nervous but also very excited about it. I am due next month and I have been starting to nest and get ready for this baby to join our family. Last month Mallory helped me get things organized in my kitchen and pantry and that got the ball rolling. My kitchen is the place where my family gathers the most and I am so grateful we started there. I want to share more about my kitchen overhaul later and today I wanted to talk about getting already for baby. Here is 6 tips to help get ready for baby. 1. Create a little changing station for baby. I wanted everything that the baby need to be easy to find and for everything to have a place. My girls are 5 and 6 years old and I wanted to be able to tell them where everything was at so that they could help me out…

    Free Printables: Summer Camping Printables

    Hello! It’s Courtney from Paperelli. Summer is finally here! Some of my favorite summer memories growing up involved camping with the family. Do you have any camping trips planned this summer? Today I am sharing these free Summer Camping Printables. Sometimes planning for a camping trip can be hard, especially if it’s your first time. I have created a couple Summer Camping Printables to help your camping trip planning stay organized and worry free! First, the Camping Packing List. Since everyone needs different items depending on the camping location and people coming, I decided to keep these lists blank and easy to customize. Organize your packing list into general campsite items, clothing and footwear, personal items, kitchen items and other miscellaneous  items. I think the best part of camping is eating and cooking outdoors.  Meal planning for camping can be a little bit harder, because you’re away from your oven, microwave, and maybe even electricity. Hopefully you find these Camping Meal Planning Printables helpful while planning for your camping trips this summer!   Are you bringing kids along on your camping trip this summer?…
