DIY Blingy Antlers

The antler craze is everywhere in decor these days.
I love the look of placing all kinds of natural elements here and there around the house. Since I live in the Hill Country of Texas, antlers are easy to find.

Snackfest Teen {Game Day Party}

*This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid and Sharpie but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #RubbermaidSharpie  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO
I have to admit right off the bat,
that I am not a fan of Super Bowl parties.
It's a bit like inviting a bunch of people over 
when all you want to do is watch a really good movie. 
Don't judge, I'm not always selfish. I just like to watch the game AND the commercials!

Our 2 teenagers don't mind having friends over during the game.
I needed a plan to be able to feed them snacks, and where they
would be self-sufficient. You know, where Mom isn't working in the kitchen the entire time.

Cozy {Winter Home} Tour

The Christmas decorations are all packed away.
It's always an adjustment for me to see the house without them,
because it can seem a little barren and "cold".

Here are a few tips that I have implemented over the years.

My Story: A Beautiful Journey with {Chronic Disease}

Source
I've been blogging for over 2 years and what a 
huge blessing it has been for me! 
If you've ever clicked the "About" tab at the top of the page, you may have read the little blurb I tacked on the end mentioning 
that I've had some health issues, and that this blog was created to give me motivation to keep doing what I love.

That is really all I've ever said about it, until now.
There is comfort in numbers and community and I have found
 the blog community to be one of tremendous
 encouragement and support.

I've watched other bloggers put their stories out there and share their deepest struggles, health issues they have or that their family members have.



I also know that prayer is a powerful thing,
so I am sharing today.

Have you ever just gotten tired of a piece of furniture in your house? Maybe the color isn't quite right anymore, but it's still in good shape structurally.

{Jewelry Organization} Display

The organization gene did NOT get passed down to me,
so I have to rely on others who have that skill to help me along.

I am sharing this project at 11 Magnolia Lane for their
Operation: Organization. It's 9 days of organizing ideas from different bloggers, so check it out!
What perfect timing for getting the house in order.
