The 4th will be here next week, and I’m just getting around to doing some decorating (blame the new baby). I started searching the web for ideas and got really inspired by this nautical themed display from Andersruff.com:
Seeing as to how I’ve got a little man on the way (whom will be making an appearance in just a couple of months), I couldn’t help but “awww” over these adorable DIY shoes from Shwin & Shwin. She offers a free pattern and tutorial for making them, along with matching bow-tie onesies. ADORABLE!
I meant to post this yesterday, but a last minute trip to the doctor put me behind all day long (it’s always something, isn’t it?).
Anywhoo, there are so many great printables and tutorials available right now that will help you make the gifts under your tree look gorgeous (and save you money in the meantime). I’ve been using them quite a bit myself this Christmas season. Here are some of my faves:
This Christmas is truly a DIY holiday for my family. The budget is tight and my project list is growing. Not only am I making several of my gifts this year (which I enjoy, and love to give anyway), but I have also found tons of Christmas decorations that I am looking forward to making… whether or not I actually find time to make them remains to be seen.
I keep pinning all these delicious-looking recipes on Pinterest, but am forgetting to make them. So I figured if I do a post with my top 5, I’ve got a better chance of remembering to try them out. So here are the top 5 recipes I’ve recently found online that I’m dying to try:

I secretly want to move to Texas, just so I can wear cowboy boots everyday. I don’t like country music or cowboy hats – just the boots, please.
How could I not have the baby bug after looking at these cute nursery photos? Right now I’m stuck on two trends: colorful, vintage inspired nurseries, and muted color palettes with soft pastel accents.
Oh how I long for an adorable nursery with a cozy, sweet-smelling little baby to put in it!
I am a huge fan of cooking (and eating, for that matter) whole chickens. It wasn’t until about 6 months ago when we bought our first deep freezer that I actually had space to stock up on whole chickens; and, come to think of it, I’m not even sure I had ever cooked a whole chicken before that…
