Built In Entryway Coat Rack

Pin It
I am happy to say I was able to complete a few built-in projects over the last few months!
I actually have a few more on my list to complete, but with the hustle and bustle of the holidays I took a little break to focus my time elsewhere.
This entryway coat rack was my most popular post on Instagram for 2018, so I wanted to write a quick post to share all of the details on how it all came together.
Clean design plus functionality.
I'm so in love with how this turned out!
Let's take a look at the 'before', shall we?

Every time I make this dessert I have people asking for the recipe, the flavors are amazing and it's always a hit!
If you've never had Carmelitas before then I'll break them down a little bit for you, there's a delicious cookie layer on the bottom, layers of chocolate chips and melted caramel are next, and then it's topped with another layer of the cookie mixture. Do yourself a favor and make them now, you'll be so glad you did :)
As always I got pictures showing the process, and the full recipe (with ingredients and directions listed at the bottom).

Bedroom Built-ins {Part 1}

Pin It
I am beyond thrilled to be writing this post because it means I am finished with this project!!
Last Fall we finished our basement and moved our older boys down there.
The bedrooms down there are big!
We thought that adding built-ins would help take up a little space while also being functional.
This was the first big project I've tackled by myself, and I'm so happy with the way it turned out.
I will be breaking up the details and steps into 2 separate blog posts.
This first post will mainly cover the details for the tall bookcase/shelves, the second post will be for the window seat with cupboards, and the floating desk.
I did go back and forth between the different sections because I needed things to dry, or ran out of some supplies but still wanted to get other things done, so it might be a little all over the place, but stay with me here!

Fabric Pumpkin Burlap Banner

Pin It
I can't believe tomorrow is October!
I absolutely love this time of the year.
September is still warm enough that I don't feel the season change too much, but as soon as October comes we decorate for Halloween, start planning costumes, and the overall feel just completely changes.
The other day I decided to make this pumpkin banner to add to our decorations this year.
I love that it will work for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I was able to make this whole thing in a little less than an hour.
I've got lots of pictures and instructions for you, but please let me know if you have any questions.
*Also, if you aren't feeling too crafty I have these for sale over at my Etsy shop! Click here to find the listing.

Kitchen Counter Declutter

Pin It
For the longest time I have been trying to come up with a better solution for storing our fresh produce.
Some fruits and veggies go in our fridge, but for the rest they've always just been put in a kind of pile on our counter.
A few people suggested a fruit bowl or a fruit stand, but I still didn't like the idea of it on the counter. I wanted to free up as much counter space as possible so I turned to the internet and started searching for ideas.
I had seen a couple of hanging baskets but it wasn't quite what I wanted, until I found this shelving kit for only $27 on Amazon! 
(I’ve linked this shelving kit and all of my recommended household finds HERE)
I have a pretty small pantry door, only 18" across, so this 12" wide set was perfect! 
It was on back order for a week, but it finally arrived yesterday and I put it up right away.

Playing Dress-up

Pin It
Being a mom of three boys means my days  mostly consist of bike riding, baseball, soccer, basketball,  super heroes, dirt...I think you get the picture here. 
I feel like I’m a very hands-on mom so I’m right in there with my kids running around, hiding from the bad guys, and getting dirty.
Deep down I’m girly though I love an excuse to dress up!
That’s why I was so excited when I found Castletown Lane.
Two sisters have come together to create this little boutique and share their love of fashion and class.
Everything they sell is feminine, modest, and vintage-y while still being current and on-trend, like this stunning little number.
This is the ‘Pride and Prejudice dress
How perfect is that?!
Not only is that one of my favorite movies of all time, but that baby blue color is everything!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Pin It
My family absolutely loves this soup.
That’s such a great feeling!
Feeding my family something they love that I know is packed full of yummy, fresh ingredients makes me happy.
Oh, and I should mention how fast it all comes together!
I believe from start to finish this dinner is on the table in under 30 minutes, so that’s a win in my book!
Let’s take a look at how this all comes together, shall we?
