Ironman Goals!

Here we go again!

2018 was supposed to be my year of Training for my first Ironman (Florida), but the arrival of our youngest put a little bit of a detour in my Ironman journey. It feels like eons have past but I'm excited to jump back into this world of hard work and perseverance

Merriest Christmas wishes!

I cant believe that Christmas is practically here! I just love this time of year!! 
 There is something so sweet about celebrating with family and friends our Savior’s birth and His life of service, his teachings of love, compassion and hope.
  May you all have a Joyous and peace filled Christmas! 
I sure love this family of mine that God has blessed me with! They are admittedly a wild bunch but boy do they light up my world💕! They have grown so much this year, not only physically but intellectually (as we’ve had grown up conversations to discuss whats happening in the world around them) and spiritually as we dedicated the hour before school/work each day To study the scriptures, discuss them and ponder the words of the prophets. Their tenacity for learning and gaining strength in all facets of life is truly inspiring!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

How to build a dream play kitchen -Kidkraft Play Kitchen makeover

Bored with our 5 year old play kitchen and uninspired by the new ones on the market, I transformed our old play kitchen into a fun designer showpiece for my daughters. Keep reading for ideas and resources to help you get the look, too.
We got this Kidkraft Play kitchen when my oldest was five years old (she's now 11😍).  It's been well loved over the years and had many nicks and scratches, even a broken door. We had moved multiple times since we first got it and it was now in a shared space in our basement. So, I decided it was time we updated this little kitchen and made it fit more our style. 
My daughters love to be in the kitchen. They love to mimic mama in the kitchen! It's the one toy that gets daily play, several hours a day. So, I was excited for the challenge to make their kitchen feel like-new again!
I had some left over wall paper from my modern farmhouse laundry room transformation, so I used it for the back splash. The wallpaper is a little pricey (fromS&L) but like I said, I already had it on hand. So, it was exactly what I needed to make this kitchen look high-end.
I painted the inside and outside of the cabinets Behr Starless Night. I left the sides white, to avoid excess work. I really love how sleek that color combo looks.

I spray painted all the fixtures, handles and sink with Krylon Color Master metallic. And as you can see I also painted the grocery kart gold😁.  

It took about a day for everything to dry, it was well worth the effort! Doesn't it look so cute?

Extra Magical Unicorn Party

Madison said all she wanted this year for her birthday was a unicorn party with her best friends. We weren't sure if it was going to happen, but thankfully it all worked out!
Oh and of course we needed to make a UNICORN CAKE. 

Halloween Party

Every year we love to throw a not-so-spooky Halloween Party. I realized with Adelle's birth I missed posting a ton of content I had created. So, here is a look at last year's party (as this year's party is still a bit in the air).

Halloween porch decor (Not too spooky)

 

I wanted to share some Halloween porch decor inspiration that is simple and easy because this year that's all anyone is looking for, right?

Kitchen Refresh

 

I just realized that there are a ton of home renovation projects that I never got around to posting up on the blog. So, here is one I did while Kyle was busy building the basement....
