Fall 2015 front porch, & about a boy who turns 6!

I am going to be revealing my fall front porch today to you all in this post. First, I have some very important things to get out of the way. Every Mom loves their children massively and wants to shout it from the roof tops. This is my version of shouting.... Today my sweet son Caleb is 6 years old! He is the lucky middle one, he gets to be both little and big brother. He relishes that role so much! We will be celebrating all things Caleb today as soon as he gets home from school. He got love, confetti, cinnamon rolls for breakfast, lots of hugs, starting the day off in a celebratory fashion for my new six year old.

How to make a fall garland with twinkle lights

There has been so much going on around here this week. I shared my fall home tour, I made these simple Halloween pumpkins. I joined in on a 12 month long furniture refresh, each month will be a new theme. Lastly, I announced my participation in the One room challenge and explained my plans for Caleb and Gavin's bedroom redo. I am exhausted just thinking about all that has gone on. I love weeks like this. I am bursting with projects, inspiration and ways to entertain you all. I can talk home decor day and night, but if I am not bringing the home decor there is not much to talk about. 

This week there has been plenty to talk about. I am going to end this week with even more projects. It is full on fall around here. Caleb is visiting a pumpkin farm with his school today, Halloween costumes have been purchased, coats are out, leaves are falling. My home is a fall inspired explosion of color and all things leaves.

One room challenge- Week 1

I do not think I have ever been so simultaneously excited and nervous for something. Well, actually when I was pregnant and about to give birth I was feeling the same way. I knew a lot of work was up ahead, but I was more then ready for the results of all of that hard work. The only difference in this is that instead of 9 months I get 6 weeks. I also am replacing the squishy and adorable baby for a new and improved room! The One room challenge starts today, and every Thursday from now until November 12th I will share the progress on this room. The big reveal will be on the last day of the challenge. Talk about lighting a fire under my a$$ to get this done!

Furniture refresh, October- fall inspired

I am giddy with excitement to announce that I have the next 12 months of my life planned. I am a planner and having this all organized gives me all the feels. OK, so I do not have every part of my life planned. I do know that for the next 12 months I will have a fabulous furniture refresh every month! I am getting together with a group of crazy talented bloggers and each month there will be a different theme. We have to refresh a piece of furniture keeping in mind that theme. Hence the name, Furniture Refresh. I have to give a quick thank you to Melody from My passion for decor. She is the one who put this together, organized this talented group, and wanted to include me! I never knew when I started on this blogging journey that fellow bloggers would be my absolute biggest support and favorite thing about blogging. I am hooked on these relationships and the talent they all put out and share. 

I do a lot of DIY and new build around here, but I can up cycle a piece of furniture as well. I like the challenge of looking at something and seeing the possibilities. The pretty under the dirt and grime. I must have trained for my love of all things makeover in high school when my girlfriends and I had sleepovers and braided each others hair and tried flashy eye shadows on. I don't do the whole "classic" makeover anymore. Makeup is something I do on a really fancy occasion only. However, furniture makeovers are so fun and I am hooked on them. This is the adult version of trying sparkly blue eye shadow.
