Memory Collection

I'm an avid memory collector!
I used to be a big time scrapbooker. 
I have albums and albums on our shelves 
full of photos, thoughts and memories.

Life is a little bit different now so I've shifted away from 
the traditional scrapbooks I used to make.
Today I'm sharing all of the ways (other than traditional scrapbooks) 
I collect memories for my family.

What I've been up to and Spring Inspiration

Hey friends- I'm playing catch up!

If you follow me on Instagram
you know that I flew to Las Vegas last weekend.

I rented a car.
They gave me a convertible Mustang. 
How funny is that? 
A mom who drives a mini van with 3 kids, drove a Mustang.
I drove from Vegas into Arizona for my dad's 70th birthday.

My dad didn't know I was coming. 
It was such a sweet surprise.
I LOVED spending time with my family!

I saw so many cacti while in AZ.  
I made my sister in law pull over so I could take a picture 
of this Saguaro cactus on the side of the road.

I had the BEST time on my trip!

Once I got home it was time to catch up on everything!
It's funny how being gone a few days gives you 
a new perspective and makes you want
to redo and clean up everything!
Or is that only me?  :)

We have so much junk and I am ready to get rid of everything!
Nothing is safe in this house.
I'm a cleaning tornado!

I'm also looking everywhere for inspiration,
including Pinterest.
I love this cart from Cherished Bliss
I really want to build one,  
and decorate it just like this!

I love this cute little local shop 
This picture is so inspiring!
I will be making a trip there soon for sure!

It's warm here and gets me so excited for Spring!

What have you been up to?

family Movie Night party

Just about every Friday night our family sits down together 
and shares a family movie night.

It's a great way to calm down after a busy week and 
get ready for the upcoming weekend.  

We recently had an extra special family movie night!

What to do with Christmas cards

I love Christmas cards!
I have had them on display, since Christmas
and just took them down last week.

But then what do you do with them?
I don't want to throw them away because they're so beautiful!  

So here is what I did with my Christmas cards.

Farmhouse Shelving unit

One thing I love to do in my house is rearrange
decor and furniture.
I love redoing and repurposing pieces to fit other rooms.

I recently redid our shelving unit to give it more farmhouse style.
