Refreshing Our Home for Fall

I have partnered with Raymour & Flanigan for this post. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full disclosure.

It's almost officially fall! And thus begins my favorite time of year. I can't get enough of this season. I always wish it could last just a little bit longer. My full fall home tour will be coming at the end of this month, but today I am excited to share how I have refreshed our home this season with some new furniture and accent pieces from Raymour & Flanigan. So come on in to get a sneak peek!

The End of Summer and New Beginnings

This summer seems to have flown by. I am sure I think that every summer, but this time, I am sending two kids off to school, so it seems even more monumental. Hazel heads to full day kindergarten (and riding the bus!) and Owen heads to half day Pre-K. I know they are both more than ready and will do and learn amazing things, but I am a bit sad this precious time home during the day with them is coming to an end of sorts.
Of course, we will be adding a new member to our family this fall and will start the whole process over again, which I am looking forward to! If you didn't hear in my last post...we are expecting another girl in November. Our whole family is excited and can't wait to enjoy the holiday season getting to know another precious gift.

Our growing family and where I have been...

I know...I has been forever since I have posted on this little blog of mine! I decided at the beginning of the summer to make some transitions in life, mainly being to take a break from the computer and social media. It has been a very refreshing time and exactly what I needed.
I have been free to spend every day focused on Hazel and Owen: having fun, exploring, creating, playing, using our imaginations and building lasting memories.

Dollhouse "Princess" Girl's Room Reveal

Today is the final installment of Dollhouse Therapy! I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in this miniatures challenge with my co-hosts Cassie, Emy and Anu for the past few months and hope you have too! Today, I am sharing all of the extravagant details of our "princess" themed girl's room, done to my soon-to-be-five-year-old Hazel's specificiations. Her birthday is on Thursday, so I thought this was the perfect week to get this room finished for my own little princess.
Also today, is sponsoring a giveaway for one lucky reader! You can enter on any of the co-hosts blogs for a chance to win $100 to!

Dollhouse Girl's Room Plans

If you are still following along with the Dollhouse Therapy challenge we started back in March, I have some new room plans to share today! Your co-hosts: Cassie, Anu, Emy and I are all working on ideas for our next room reveals which will happen on the last Tuesday of this month, when we will also be giving away $100 to for those who have been joining us in the challenge!
Today, I am sharing my basic plans for the girl's room. Hazel has the "girl's room" and Owen has the "boy's room." It was tough deciding which room to do first, but I chose to focus on the girl's room first because Hazel's birthday is on June 30th...right after I get it done. I thought it would be a fun birthday surprise!

A Father's Gift of Time and a Giveaway!

I have partnered with Jord for this post and giveaway. All expressed opinions are 100% my own. Full Disclosure.

One of the best things about my husband, is the amount of time that he spends with our children. He not only loves and adores them, but goes out of his way to do special things with them often. One thing that they currently enjoy is geocaching. They find special "treasure boxes" hidden by other geocachers all over, then exchange little items for ones that they find inside. Both Hazel and Owen love this, but I think the most important part is the time they spend out exploring with their dad.
I knew I wanted to get Josh a unique Father's Day gift this year that fit his personality. He loves watches and time pieces (he actually makes Steampunk jewelry using vintage watch and pocket watch pieces), so I knew the wood watches from Jord would be a great gift idea for him.

Dollhouse Living Room Reveal

It's another reveal day of #DollhouseTherapy! This awesome dollhouse renovation challenge was started a few months ago by my friend Cassie of Primitive and Proper. She, the other co-hosts (Emyand Anu) and myself are revealing our chosen rooms with you today and invite you to share your own mini reno projects with our link party at the end of this post!

So here we go...let the miniature fun begin!
I the dollhouse living room done. If you have been following my progress with this fixer upper, you might know that I intended to finish this room first way back in March, but it didn't happen. I am pretty much over the moon happy with how it came out, though, so I think it's all good that it took me a little bit longer. I love it so much I wish I could shrink myself down and move right it! Let's pretend that's what we are doing right now.

Find yourself a little bottle that says "DRINK ME" and we will head on in...
