Quick update

Well hello there. I know it’s been pretty silent over here and while part of me wants to apologize, the other part of me is like, this is my blog! I can take a break when I want to! 😉

While the break has been unintentional, I still need some time to get back to it. I want to pick up on my regularly scheduled posting and stuff, but am going to give myself until the new year, unless inspiration strikes before then.


Canvas Art for our Bedroom

A few weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to order a canvas or wall mural from Photowall.com. Photowall.com has a ton of different options! After talking to Dave we wanted to get something for our bedroom and we decided to get a canvas vs a wall mural.

We were able to pick the size we wanted after choosing our graphic and everything came packaged nicely rolled up with the pieces of wood to create the canvas. Dave got to work putting it all together!

You do need some strength to make sure the pieces of wood fit together correctly but ultimately it was an easy process, including how the canvas comes with self-adhesive to stick to the wood frame. Now to hang it up!

(I’m supervising!)


And because I’m feeling honest, here is what our bedroom looks like pretty regularly. Unmade bed and clean laundry in a pile waiting to be put away. And that’s Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon by my pillow. And yes, he’s mine, not Sadie’s. #realism.

I love how it looks and its a great pop of color for our bedroom!

Thanks to Photowall.com! I received the canvas art free of charge in exchange for this post. All opinions stated are my own.

Read It In… September

As I was prepping for this post I was muttering to myself how I really didn't read that much in September, when lo and behold I looked at my Goodreads shelves and I actually read seven books! Not too shabby! However, only one of them was a 5 out of 5, and a … Click here to read the full post →

Five on a Friday 9.29.17

OMG, this has been a WEEK. Nothing really happened, but it just felt like it went on for FOREVER. And I had a dentist appointment (and had a cavity - BOO), went home sick one day, have had construction going on in our house... on and on and on! But it's … Click here to read the full post →
