Parties, girl’s nights, dinners, holidays etc.  SO when my boys became obsessed with all things Star Wars I knew it was only a matter of time before something Star Wars themed was going to happen.  And so a Star Wars Movie night was born.  I have always been a big Star Wars fan but I swear I love it even more watching it with my boys.  Their excitement reminds me why these movies are so great.

DIY-painted-Easter-EggsSimple-Painted-Easter-Egg-DIYIt’s Easter Egg time!!  I don’t think I will ever be too old to dye eggs, every year I love it just as much as my kids.  All the bright colors and the imperfections of each dyed egg.  Its just so fun.  I can’t pretend I wasn’t a little giddy to die my own eggs for this project without my kids ha ha.  And since these were “my” eggs I took it a step farther and painted them as well.  These DIY brushstroke painted Easter Eggs takes about 10 minutes total to paint, which is equally awesome.

Removable-Wallpaper-DIYRenting can get frustrating, guys – as you have heard me complain here and here ha ha. I have soooo many things I want to do, paint, new flooring (because my brown carpet makes me want to vomit), updated kitchen, and getting rid of ugly popcorn ceiling.  But allas (sigh) renting allows me to do none of this.  It can get discouraging but there are lots of tricks to bypass the frustration and to get a home and space you love.  One of those is removable wallpaper.  It’s basically a game changer.  The fact that you can instantly change the look of an entire room in a beautiful non-permanent way is so amazing, and leaves you with your deposit ha – which I know we all strive for.  Check out how I transformed this boring wall into my most complimented room in the house.
