Master Bedroom Makeover

We are in the midst of making over our master bedroom.  We have had the same bedroom furnishings since we were married 7 years ago…and our tastes have very much changed since then.  I wanted something that felt grown up, cozy, and flowed well with the rest of our house.

We painted all of the walls in Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy, picked up a new headboard, and are working on making over a couple of Ikea Rast dressers to use as nightstands.  I’ll be sure to post a picture when all is finished.

Great Wolf Lodge

Last weekend we traveled to Grapevine, Texas to the Great Wolf Lodge with friends.  This was our third trip there.  Hudson & Ella loved getting to ride some of the big kid rides this year.  We did lots of swimming and sliding, ate at a hibachi restaurant, and played in the arcade.  It was a great little getaway!

We even made a pit stop at Ikea on the way home for some goodies to redecorate our master bedroom with.  Can’t wait to share what we’re doing!

Basics from Impressions Online Boutique

As a Mom I, of course, want to look stylish but there is a definite need for comfort and modesty.  Gone are the days of short dresses when I am picking up children (or toys) off of the floor.  I love the trend of basic oversized tops.

They are trendy, can be dressed up with some wedge booties and a necklace or worn more casually with boots or flats and a scarf.  They are SO comfortable but allow a mom to look put together and stylish.

Here are some of my favorites that I recently picked up from Impressions Online Boutique:

Impressions not only carries an array of these types of tops in every color under the sun but they carry the cutest dresses, sweaters, accessories, and more.  And their customer service is tops.  I receive emails after I’ve received each order to make sure I like what I’ve purchased.
