The Ultimate Family Moving Guide | Planning

March 10, 2017

  I have moved roughly 476 times. Ok, not really, but a lot. I have moved as single college student, a single mom, a married mom of two, and so on. We are now planning our biggest move yet, a family cross-country move to California from Georgia for my husband’s job. I have learned much about moving by trial and error, so I decided to write a four-part moving guide with all my tips and tricks. Welcome to the first…

The Perfect Nursery Dresser

February 10, 2017

I received this dresser from Delta Children’s in exchange for incorporation in an organic blog post. All opinions are mine. Charlie has her nursery all to herself right now, but in a few months that will change! While she is enjoying the princess life, she currently has two dressers in her room. The larger of the two (that holds linens and clothes) is a family heirloom antique, and the other is the Viv + Rae 3 Drawer Louisa Dresser by Delta. For…

Affordable Ways to Change Up Your Decor

February 7, 2017

This post was sponsored by Desenio. All opinions are my own. If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I have serious decorating ADD. I can’t stand having anything the same for too long, and I love experimenting with different arrangements. Since most of us can’t afford to buy new sets of furniture every six months, I have come up with some inexpensive and simple tips for never getting bored with your decor. …

New Home Tour | Master Bedroom

February 2, 2017

Several of these items were gifted in exchange for incorporation in this lifestyle post. All opinions and my love for these products are 100% honest.  One of my favorite things about my new house is the master bedroom. It’s big and bright and it was the perfect blank canvas to decorate. Right now, one side is the “sleeping area” and the other side is my “office area”. Today, I want to reveal the sleeping area!…

New Home Tour | Grayson’s Room

December 11, 2016

I’ve had a lot of fun getting Grayson’s new room ready to go, and I wanted to share my favorite details. His last room was vintage superhero themed, which we loved, but he’s not really into superheroes anymore. He’s getting bigger, which makes me die a little inside. I mean… it’s awesome. Anyway, I thought a monochrome theme would be a little more “big boy” and allow us some freedom to accessorize in different ways that still match. It’s nothing…

New Home Tour | Living Room

December 3, 2016

I seriously wish I could have all of you over to have a cup of coffee with me and listen to my Traditional Christmas Pandora station! Since I can’t, I wanted to show you what my living room in my new house is (currently) looking like! I say “currently”, because you should know that I change up my decor all the time. I have even moved things around since I photographed this! Obviously, the holiday decor is out and it…

Deck The Halls With Memories: More Than Decor

November 27, 2016

This post was sponsored by Christmas Tree Shops andThat!. All opinions are mine. I will be honest. There have been years when I really didn’t feel like decorating that much. Life can be busy, hectic, and even depressing. There were times when decorating for the holidays was the very last thing I wanted to do. Our mind can wander into thinking “It’s just stuff. Is it that important? Does it really matter?” It’s somewhat of a subconscious excuse generator. I…

Clean-Up with Libman

November 10, 2016

This conversation is sponsored by Momtrends on behalf of Libman. All opinions are my own. A couple of months ago, I told you guys all about Libman cleaning products and how I (try to) keep my house clean with a cleaning schedule. I don’t often get to report back on a product after an extended period of time using it, so I am excited to say I still LOVE my Libman supplies! We just moved, and now we have hardwood…

New Home Tour | Charlie’s Room Part 2

October 21, 2016

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY. All opinions are my own. I know I just revealed Charlie’s room a couple of weeks ago at the old house, but everyone wanted me to show our space at the new house, too! I won’t overwhelm you with photos this time, I will just share my favorite little nooks. I love the soft colors of her room, the neutral tones, and the subtle whimsy of the space. I put the felt…

How To Have a Stress-Free Moving Day with Kids

October 19, 2016

This post was sponsored by Two Men and a Truck. All opinions are mine. If you follow me on social media, you know that we moved last week! We had about two weeks to move from the time we found the new house, so you can imagine the whirlwind. As the self-titled Crenshaw House Manager, I knew I had a busy couple of weeks ahead. I was also mildly nervous about moving with two kids. The last time I moved,…

Fall Home Tour | Charlie’s Room Part 1

September 29, 2016

I wasn’t going to post this since we are moving to a new house, but you guys asked me to reveal both rooms, so here we are! Your wish is my command. I guess it’s ok, since I spent all this time on pictures! I won’t chat too much, let’s get on with the nursery tour. I will reveal again later in the year when we are in the new house! Maybe it will be a good excuse to switch…

How To Keep A Clean House: A Slacker’s Guide

September 19, 2016

Thank you to Libman for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% my own. I have been thinking a lot about this. Housekeeping seems to be the biggest struggle for me. It’s hard to even choose a biggest struggle, because at times it seems like I am mismanaging everything. Alas, keeping my house clean is the most challenging. I whined a lot about not having time or energy. I blamed a lot of things. Once I settled on the reality…

Fall Home Tour | Back Deck

September 12, 2016

This post is sponsored by Enbrighten Cafe Lights by Jasco Products and it’s advertiser. All opinions are 100% mine. #EnbrightenLife Is everybody feeling like Fall and drinking their PSLs, yet? We’ve had some cooler mornings and evenings here, which has been enough to get me excited for the season change! My back deck was totally empty a few weeks ago, so I was really excited when I got the opportunity to partner with Enbrighten Cafe Lights. I knew exactly what…
