January Bar Cart Refresh

So it snowed almost an entire foot here in Kansas City this weekend but that didn’t stop me from continuing my spring cleaning and organizing which turned into me revamping my bar cart. I took all the Holiday decor off my bar cart and giving it a little spring refresh. I love to revamp my bar cart every couple of months and this time around I added some pops of color because I’m totally itching for spring, which is sooo far away, so my home decor will have to fill that void of sunshine and warm weather for now.

F R I Y A Y {FAVORITES}

Happy Friyay friends! I cannot believe how seriously cold it has been here in Kansas City this past week. We were in the 20’s last night and still currently this morning – not okay with me for it being this early in the season. Speaking of things happening early in the season, did y’all see my post on my home holiday decor I shared this week? If not, definitely be sure to check it out as a lot of the items I linked are on sale this weekend. Erick, Brantley, Brinkley and I are taking family photo’s this weekend for our holiday card, which is always an adventure. I will have a post up soon sharing our holiday cards, my favorite websites to order them from and a pretty fab  discount code for you guys too so stay tuned. In the meantime, here is this weeks round up of Friyay Favorites!

{2017} Home Holiday Decor

I promise i’m not crazy y’all, I just really really love Christmas. Scratch that, I really really love the entire holiday season. From October 1st through January 1st each year I soak up all the holiday cheer I can get. My fall and Halloween decor usually go up before October 1st and my Christmas decor is in the works the first week of November. For everyone out there saying, “what’s the rush!? Can’t you just enjoy each holiday before moving on and celebrating the next.” To you folks I  say, i’m not rushing anything – quite the opposite actually.

For me, this season goes by so very quickly and with each passing year it seems to just go even faster than the year before. The holiday season is truly my favorite time of the year and so with that I want to enjoy it  for as long as I possibly can. From the festive decor to the tree lines and falling leaves on the ground with their beautiful changing colors. Pumpkin spice latte’s, cozy knits, boot and booties, bonfires, and cider everything. To the first snow fall, pretty Christmas lights, cozy throw blankets, holiday movies, and festive gatherings with friends and family. Basically the holiday season, for me, is the season of nostalgia and comfort. Rule of life people: if something makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone else in the process (like putting up holiday decorations for instance 😉 )how dare we feel the need to apologize for it.

Church Pew Home Decor

This weekend I was lucky enough to inherit this gorgeous old church pew that my dad got at an auction. My parents didn’t have the room for it at their house (or didn’t want to find the room) and they knew how much I loved it. Truth be told, I really don’t have room for it at my house either but when you’re obsessed with something, you make it work!

I just loving the charming character the old distressed church pew brings into any home. You can use church pews as a bench on either side of your kitchen table, at the end of your bed, or like I did as an entryway bench. Today I’m sharing what items I used to decorate this gorgeous piece of furniture to take it to that next level.

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

So I’m a little late getting this post out, I had planned to get it posted a week or so ago before our trip to Colorado but ya know, life. So though a little late I am still very excited to share my Target Spring Dollar Spot Haul with you guys today. Probably like most of you reading I am obsessed with the dollar spot at Target and I feel like with each changing season their merchandise selection just keeps getting better and better.  Literally about 2 days after Valentines day I was so excited to see there was a whole new display of pretty pastel spring themed merchandise in the dollar spot. Naturally, I loaded up my cart  and I’m here to share with you all my favorite finds and how I’ll be using them!

This post is rather long compared to my usual but it’s hard to keep it short when you’re recapping an entire trip around the sun! 2016 was a significant year for me as it was the year Erick and I got to say ‘ I do ‘.  I will also always remember 2016 as the year I started what has become an amazing outlet for all things fashion, travel, lifestyle, party planning, and more – Elle Mae Bloom!
