Week 3, of the ORC!
Half way through the challenge
Here’s my personal philosophy on Easter Baskets in 2019: they are straight up O.O.C. (out of control).
Dear One Room Challenge Diary,
It has been made clear to me this week that my dining room project is going way over budget. It has not been made clear to my husband…
Oversized prints of a beach, sitting in a massive frame and taking over a wall has been a trend for years now.
So apparently I like dropping statements like “We’re going to have our dining room furnished for Thanksgiving!” to the entire world on the internet and then going silent just before the holidays roll around.
One piece of advice I learned with this bathroom: if you are using gray in a room, you need other warm colors to liven it up.
I am going to have not 1, but 3 weeks of spring break with my kids this year.
In our previous 1970s home, we pulled out the chandelier from our unused dining room and turned the room into a playroom for our 4 little ones. It worked out so well!
Who doesn’t love a good dupe? Today I’m showing off some dynamic duos and terrific trios that are all quite similar, but with prices that are decidedly different.
I was so excited when we built our home to make my pantry my dream pantry!
Hello! This is Part 2 of my Honest Holiday Toy Guide, focusing on our most beloved and well loved toys we already own, particularly for kids ages 1-7. If you are looking for older kid’s toys you will want to take a look at Part 1.
Looking for a rich after dinner treat to serve your guests this holiday season?
I am refreshing our bar area just in time for the holidays!
All my favorites holiday pajamas in one place, and a PBK photoshoot!
Last year over Christmas we had just moved into our home. Decorating felt crazy when we had barely unpacked. I bought a faux garland from Costco right after Thanksgiving to liven the house up. Gosh it was pretty. I had it around my stairs and above my fireplace. Well thanks to all the heat from the fireplace and the sunlight that tends to drench our stairs, it was dried and crispy to the touch 2 weeks later. I tried misting, but it was so dead and depressing- I tossed it just before Christmas. Of course some homes will do better than others, but this year I am going faux!
Not only do I have 4 kids but sometimes I feel like I have owned every toy ever made at one point in Mom life. That makes me an adult toy expert, right? Being a toy expert is actually good for nothing…. except when someone needs gift advice!
Why this list is so helpful:
ALL of these are toys we actually OWN, that my kids have loved for years!
ALL of these toys can be found on Amazon

Yes! It’s here! I have been so excited with putting this post together. Every year I like to pick out my girls’ Christmas dresses early. I am always afraid the ones I want will sell out. The girls wear their dresses to a few occasions throughout the season- we take them to go see the Nutcracker, we try to hit one touring Broadway show a season, and Christmas mass. I haven’t ever done matching but I do prefer similar prints and styles.
