2017 so far

We are slowly getting back into our grove with the kids starting school this week. They went back mid week which was also quite nice being that sometimes it's easier to get back in the groove with a short week. I was going to wait until after Sunday to take down Christmas since it's not technically over but once all the kids were gone I found some motivation buried deep deep down to put it up 😉 

It was buried REALLY deep down...

I still have a few things in the kitchen that need to find their home in the attic and all my Tupperwares are sitting outside the attic door but for the most part our home is getting back to normal. 

I absolutely love the Advent and Christmas season but I also love the feeling of a clean, less cluttery (is that a word?) home just as much. This morning I sat by the fire with my coffee and looked around and just enjoyed the simplicity of our living room. 


I changed our mantle decor a little


I just loved this picture of this kids so much! It's a metal print from Mpix, which I must say is my new go to for ordering prints. When my pictures came in I might have cried happy tears. They are absolutely gorgeous!

I also added this piece from the dining room to this wall to store some of the kids new games and toys. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. And now I get to order a new piece for the dining room which makes me equally as happy 👊👌



Life is slowly get back to normal 😊

I am really embracing my word of the year SIMPLIFY so far. I have gone through both boys rooms and bathrooms and cleaned them out majorly. I also took Aiden's comforter and throw pillows off his bed so he can make it easier. He isn't a professional bed maker and those things always ended up just making his bed look messy. To remedy this, I bought him a heavier blanket and we are using that as his comforter. Asher has never really had a problem making his bed and he loves all his throw pillows so his stayed the same. I also took things from other rooms and helped to organize their bathroom for them (post to come on that). It's amazing how little changes can really make life easier.

Milly's room had a major overhaul this week as well. She received some pretty big presents this year and I really wanted them in her room and not the playroom. The way her furniture was arranged it wasn't going to all fit. It took a little over 2 hours for me to completely revamp her room and now it's perfect! (again...post on that later).

SIMPLIFYing my house is proving to be quite therapeutic for me. 

Other then all that fun we had the pleasure of meeting our newest little framily member Baby Jeffery



He is just about the sweetest little thing I have ever held (aside from my own babies of course 😉) Brand new squishy little newborns has to be one of the best gift God gives us. 

Now I am off for more organzing/cleaning mixed in with some playing with the kids and cooking some nice warm soup on this cold January Saturday here in Central Texas ⛄
