Do you like geometric rugs? I fell in love with this one when I saw it. It totally transformed the room. We love playing games in here and just hanging out. Swipe to see the before.
Hi friends! 💁♀️ It’s been a while and...there’s a good reason. When I started this Instagram it was to share my crayon collection. Over time I realized I ALSO liked to share things in my life. I loved connecting with all of you and letting you see me. I had to them decide which one I was going to keep. Crayons or my life. I spilt them up (you can still find my crayons at @jennyscrayoncollection). And kept me. 😍 My life drastically changed since I started this journey. Instead of a military spouse in Kansas, I became a new mom and retired military spouse in upstate New York. We fell in love with a property and started renovating it. Having a baby and renovating didn’t leave a lot of time for posting on Instagram. I took a break at the beginning of the year. We traveled a lot and my baby got RSV and was in the hospital :( But I’m coming back and excited to share with you my journey and life passions as I have done for so long. Being new in a place isn’t easy, having a baby isn’t easy, renovating a house isn’t easy. But moving to a place you love is invigorating, seeing sweet baby smiles melts your heart, seeing that number on the scale fall is encouraging, connecting with old and new friends makes my heart happy, and making a house a home is priceless. Thanks for following along. I’m excited to share with you what makes life worth living. And hopefully give you some nuggets this year to use in your own journey. Thanks friends!!!
How cold was it where you are?❄️ We got like 3 feet of snow! I took this at the beginning of the day before it all came down. We saw some blue skies for a few minutes.
Can you tell the theme of the year 2018? #bestnine2018 🤰🤱🏡🔨 Lots of changes for me and for this Instagram of mine. I officially separated my crayon collection @jennyscrayoncollection from this account. Thanks SOOO much for sticking around. It has been fun to share my adventures in upstate New York with you. I hope to share many more. 😍 Happy New Year! 🎉🎉🎉
Do you have to work this week? My husband is doing half days. It’s been nice. 🥰 This picture makes my heart so happy. We bought a new rug painted the cabinets white and changed the hardware. I would like to do a total bathroom remodel someday but these changes update it so much! Swipe to see the before.
Did you have a white Christmas? We were this close to not having one. All the snow melted a week before Christmas which is rare here. We got some this week, much to my kids delight. I am responsible for snow removal from our walkways and deck. I do not want those delivery people tripping on ice. I get hungry all the time and this year I am getting even more so with nursing my new little one. I grab whatever I can. I found these delicious NEW Pure Protein Almond Oatmeal Energy Squares in the pharmacy section of Walmart. What do you eat for quick snacks? #FueledByFlavor #sponsored @officialpureprotein
All their stocking were hung by the chimney with care... 🧦 We put ours on new chairs this year. Our old house had hooks on the mantel and I didn’t want to put holes in the mantle yet or at all....The kids were just fine with the chairs. Thank goodness. We have a year to decide how to put them up again. 🎄 Christmas morning was so fun. It’s so fun to see the light in their eyes, excitement and gratitude for their gifts. 🌲 What was your favorite thing in your stocking? Mine was chocolate! 🍫 Merry Christmas to you all! Hope you have a great day!

Before and after Christmas mode. I love the new rug we got and how we changed the layout of the room. It feels so much bigger to me now. We have the same couch added another one, and moved it back further. It has been so much fun to gather in. We have more to do but I’m LOVING the transformation right now. Any tips for dealing with the mountain of papers that come home from school? We may have a problem.
