{decorating overdrive}

Happy Friday, people! We made it through another week! 

As you can probably guess, planning a big boy room and a little girls nursery and a whole entire house has put my mind in decorating overdrive! So many ideas floating around in my head and the majority of them are DIY! 

As I mentioned in previous posts, my decorating sense has really evolved over the last year and I think it is due to Pinterest and Instagram. Its cool to see all the different styles and I really think I've found my true decorating style. Modern and clean with touches of pretty and color :) I have started a couple of lists mostly for me to keep track of where I'm at and what still needs to be done, because I can't visualize it in the actual rooms just yet.

It is so thrilling to have everything purchased and ready to go and then just put everything in its place when move in time comes! It definetly puts my mind at ease to have everything ready as well. Each of the kids rooms will be a labor of love, and that makes me so over the moon happy! 

Here is a little inspiration board that I created to keep me in check for Landidoodle's BIG boy room! He has started saying "I BIIIG" You are big buddy, and we want you to stay little!

I literally buy those white Target matted frames up above every. single. time. I see one.  Not kidding, I am using 3 in our bedroom over the bed, 2-3 in baby girls bedroom, and 2 in Landon's room.  Yes, that equals 8 and I'll probably get more for the living room and the kitchen too.....I'm officially obsessed! They are only around $16 for an 8x10 matted frame and about $13 for a 5x7, not including the discount I always use.  Normally they are 15% off on the Cartwheel app {which I LOOVE}
