  • DIY Fall Centerpiece

    Summer vacation is officially over and the weather is cooling off (slowly but surely in Arizona!). We are loving the crisp mornings and cool evenings. That being said, it’s finally that time of the year for all things Fall! We’ve partnered with JOANN to teach you how to make this super easy, super cute DIY Fall Centerpiece that is perfect for Thanksgiving and all season long. DIY Fall Centerpiece Step 1: Layer your table with a table runner (or two!) I used a white table runner and the Simply Autumn Decorative Mesh Ribbon in Natural Jute from JOANN. S Step 2: Add height and to help create your overall shape of the centerpiece. I used the Simply Autumn Bamboo Wood & Iron Candle Holders in Small and Large. Step 3: Begin to layer pumpkins using your larger pumpkins first. I start with the larger pumpkins to create the overall shape of the centerpiece.   Here are the pumpkins I used (all from JOANN): Glitter Pumpkins White Carvable Pumpkins Dipped Copper Pumpkins Navy Woodchip Pumpkins Copper Striped Pumpkins White Woodchip Pumpkins…

  • Back to School Tips and Preparing for Back to School

    Going Back to school is a fun and exciting time. Get prepared with these Back to School Tips. This post is sponsored by Clorox. All opinions are my own. We love getting back to school. My kids love school, they really do love the structure and love to see their friends. This year we are all excited for the school year to begin. I did a few things that made getting back to school easier and wanted to share my back to school tips with you. Back to School Tips and How we can prepare for Back to School This year, we have three of our four kids in all day school. They all go to the same school. My third child Ryder is 5 years old and he started Kindergarten this year. A few days before school started we went down to the school and walked around so he would know where everything was. We were also able to meet the teachers and show the kids where they will be sitting and what their schedule would be this year. We…

  • Park Home Reno: Main Floor Rug Round Up

    Hey guys! A lot of you have asked a ton of questions about my rugs lately! I thought it’d be easiest to direct everyone to the same spot and answer some of the questions publicly versus in 100+ direct messages and emails. Dining Room Rug This rug in my dining room is from Overstock.com. You can get it here. I get an 8×10 rug. Your table and chairs should sit on your dining room rug. I love this rug for dining rooms because the color, pattern and movement in the rug hides pretty much any stain! It’s easy to clean and has a low pile so your chair lets slide easily across it. Living Room Rug The rug in my living room is the nuLOOM Vintage Perisian Distressed Pink rug from Overstock. I got the 8×10 but could have even gone up to 9×12′. I used my favorite rug tape (found here in our Amazon shop) I have (wood looking) tile and this tape is great for helping to hold rugs in place. I am not sure how it would do…

  • Back to School Essentials

    This post is sponsored by Abercrombie Kids. All content and opinions are our own, always. When summer vacation comes to an end, Back to School time can be super overwhelming; but it doesn’t have to be. Every year, we take our kids shopping for school supplies, a new backpack, lunchbox, some toiletries and grocery shopping for lunches. One thing that is easily overwhelming is school clothes shopping. We’ve partnered with Abercrombie Kids to make school shopping a breeze! Check out their 40% off sale happening now! Denim is always a hot topic for back to school. My boys want comfort and style and let me tell you, that’s hard to come by. Abercrombie Kids has so many options from size 3/4 up to 15/16 so all of my school aged kids found a pair of new jeans that they loved. My oldest two boys are a long and lean body style so we went with Abercrombie Kids’ Skinny Jeans and they both chose the dark wash. These jeans are their favorite because they’re made out of sweatpant stretch fabric–they look…

  • Brooklyn and Bailey’s Dorm Room Makeover

    As you probably know since we’ve been blasting it on social media, we had the incredible opportunity to design and decorate YouTubers Brooklyn & Bailey’s dorm room for college. We have been friends with Brooklyn & Bailey’s mom, Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles (she’s a freaking rockstar!) and when she asked if we wanted to help with their dorm room at Baylor University, we obviously said YES! It was soooo much fun and we had the BEST time in Texas with them! Head over to their YouTube channel to see their video. Here are some of the before and after shots and links to all of the stuff we got to beautify their dorm. Amazing what a rugs, removable wallpaper and a whole lot of love and decor can do. The girls had a full apartment (and 2 other roommates) so we decorated their Living Room, Bathroom and Bedroom for Brooklyn and Bailey. Below you’ll find all the sources for everything we could find online!

  • My evening and bedtime routines

    Due to popular demand, I’m sharing my evening routines with you guys! I shared some details on Instagram stories and had SO much feedback and requests for it more broken down into a blog post. I will start by saying that every single family is vastly different. There is a time and season for everything and our routine has been 10 years in the making. There were times when my husband worked late at night or studied into the wee hours of the morning. Times when I coached gymnastics til 8 or 9pm and my husband did the bedtime routine alone, times when my babies slept in our room when they were tiny and woke up several times at night. This is simply an example of what our typical night looks like right now and how I make every attempt for it to run smoothly. Family evening and bedtime routine 6:30pm – Dinner clean up.  As a family, we clean up dinner and the boys get into their pajamas while my husband and I finish cleaning the kitchen and straightening…

  • DIY Kids Homework Station

    I am a Brand Ambassadör for IKEA U.S. This is a sponsored post. All opinions and product selections are our own. Always. We partnered with Ikea to create my kids homework station. My kids always have work on the computer and take some classes online (for fun!) so a homework station is a must. We needed a homework station and a place for my kids to play on the computers so they stop using mine. haha! We had this awkward nook in our basement right off of our family room and we wanted to do something useful and we knew our kids desperately needed a place to both study and play. How to create a homework station First, I painted the walls white. Then, I taped off 2/3 of the way down the wall and painted the bottom part with a rich navy blue, the same navy I’ve used throughout my house. My husband and I started by building this kid’s desk (tutorial coming soon!) and finished it off with some furnishings from Ikea. Buy or make a cool desk…

  • Hallway Makeover with Behr Paint

    A hallway can be a boring space but it does not have to be. When you are choosing a hallway paint color you can add so much personality to the space by doing something fun. This post is Sponsored by Behr and POPSUGAR My hallway when we moved in was boring, and out of date and it was also one of the first things you see when you walk into my house. A few things I did not like about the hallway was the dark doors. I felt like the doors made the hallway seem out of date and dark. I wanted the hallway to have more personality. In need of a facelift I knew it needs a facelift but I was not really sure what I wanted. At first I was thinking I was to do some more light and airy in the space. I started by painting my doors Ultra Pure White in Behr PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior and I knew I was off to a great start. My hallway leads to my kids room and I wanted to add a pop…

  • Smart Home Thermostats and a Colorful Breakfast Nook

    This year we are converting our homes to be smart homes and it has made our lives so much easier! I recently add a smart thermostat and I am loving it. We have been partnering up with the Home Depot this year to convert our homes into more of a smart home. If you missed Mallory’s backyard post that was one of the first things she did and I have the exact same locks. Then Mallory also installed her new light bulb and garage door opener which you can details all about that HERE. I just recently just added in these new Emerson Sensi Thermostat. But before I get into all the details of the thermostat I first have to reveal the space where my thermostat is. And that is my breakfast nook right off the kitchen. Breakfast Nook The breakfast nook is a space that needed to be brought back to life. I wanted to have a pop of color and for it to be a fun space. When we moved into our house the cabinets were a painted…

  • Smart Home Ideas: How to Create a Functional, Smart Garage

    This year, we are on a mission to create the ultimate Smart Homes. We are going through virtually every space and creating convenient smart home features. If you missed my backyard post, I talked about how we added smart locks our exterior doors and they have been awesome!! I spent a few weeks working on every single detail of our garage and making sure it was functional and “smart” to make my DIY life more convenient (and pretty!).   How to make a smart home – garage The lights and the garage door opener were super dated since the house was built in 1994. We left the fluorescent lights on the ceiling and replaced the flush mount light at the top of the stairs. I used my favorite gold flush mount light and installed the Phillips Hue personal wireless lighting so we can control the lights remotely. I love this feature because if we are out of town, we can set up routines on the Phillips app to turn the lights on and off so it appears that someone is…

  • Park Home Reno: Back Patio Ideas and Patio Progress

    This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All opinions are 100% my own, always. Time for an update! We have been dragging you guys along our backyard journey’s over the past few months and I thought I’d take the time to answer some questions and give you an update on our back patio that we recently added to our home. A little background, our home sits on 1/2 of an acre and we have a large backyard space but besides our deck, had very little space to entertain. Rewind back to March, this area was dirt and a tree. The tree was beautiful but as it grew, it became too close to the window/house and had to be removed. We took the opportunity to make a full backyard patio that this backyard was really lacking. When we designed this space I had several must-haves for this space. Our must haves included: Easily accessible from inside the house Awesome “floors” Relaxing Hot tub/Pergola space Fire pit lounge area Dining Space Outdoor kitchen/grilling area First, we cleared out the trees, bushes,…
