    How we protect our homes and families

    This post is brought to you by Liberty Mutual. While this is a sponsored opportunity, all content and opinions expressed here are our own, always. Our priorities: Family and Home FIRST! Over the past year and a half or so, we both became homeowners. Since we started this blog, we had been renters for 7 years. When we started this blog we had 2 kids each and now have 9 kids combined. NINE. While our love for DIY projects and decorating runs real deep, those 9 kids and our husbands are first and foremost our top priority in life. We love what we do because it provides a special, personalized place for our families to grow and create lasting memories. Our kids will never look back and try to remember the details of their bedrooms since we have about a million photos to remind them. ūüėČ ¬†Our families are forever and our homes set the stage for those memories to be made. Our homes are the settings of virtually every memory our children will have. That being said, we’ve recently…

  • Easy DIY Lego Table

    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…
