In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

Transforming the Nursery into a Guest Room

Shortly after our youngest daughter turned 5, I realized that it was probably time to redecorate her nursery. A little late, I know.  A part of me may have kept it longer than I should have because I didn’t want to let go of the idea that my baby was not a baby anymore.  With the decision that our family was complete, we obviously didn’t have a need for a room with a crib or a changing table, so we finally agreed to turn that nursery into a guest room and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.

With family all over the world, we wanted to turn this room into an inviting, comfortable space for our loved ones to stay when they come to visit.   I wanted it to feel like a home, but look like a boutique hotel.  Easier said than done and shout out to those interior designers who do this for a living.  It’s a lot harder than HGTV makes it look!

The Bed.

The most important part of the room makeover was the bed.  It’s the spot that will make or break a person’s vacation.   If you’re not getting a good night’s rest, you really aren’t going to enjoy yourself.  I researched different companies and was excited when Leesa decided to partner with us.  I had read and heard so many great things about the company and knew that it would be the perfect mattress for our new guest room.

leesa, comfortable mattress, sleep, good night sleep, best mattress, redecorating, diy, decor, guest room, leesa mattress, foam mattress, mom blogger, mom blog, family blog, 2018

The day the mattress arrived and we unboxed it, I was so pleasantly surprised.  The Leesa mattress is beautifully designed and engineered with three premium foams for cooling, body contouring and pressure-relieving core support.  It was just as comfortable as it was beautiful.  The Leesa mattress is designed to cradle and support your body while avoiding the sinking feeling and overheating found in other foam mattresses. And it’s SO comfortable.

Just a day after the mattress arrived, our Aunt came to stay with us for a few weeks.  She told me that her bed at home (which cost her thousands of dollars), left her with an aching back and sleeping on the Leesa mattress, after just one night, she found that her back pain wasn’t there.  It was at that moment I knew that we had chosen the right mattress.

Color Scheme.

Next on my list was the color scheme.  I knew that I was going with gray and white for the two main colors but wanted a bright, fun accent color.  Our family is a huge fan of the song “You are my Sunshine” because it reminds us of our Papa, who sang it to all of us when we were children.  I decided that yellow would be the perfect accent color so that I could also incorporate a sun and beach feel to the room (similar to the nursery decor we previously had).  This also allowed for us to repurpose some of the furniture we already had in the house, as well as small decor pieces which is great when you’re on a budget like we are.

One of my favorite pieces that we were able to leave in the room from the nursery was our seashell mobile.  I picked this gorgeous piece up in Key Largo about 6 years ago for under $20.  There was something about it that I fell in love with instantly.  It’s not only beautiful to look at, but it makes a beautiful, relaxing sound as the shells clang together.

Artwork.

Artwork was a big deal for this room. I looked at so many different websites and thought at one point about just making a large canvas of our family, but I wanted the biggest piece, over the bed, to have a strong message attached to it.  For me, anxiety is something that took over my life years ago and I struggle to keep under control.  Over the last 6 months or so, I’ve taken on a new perspective and wanted a message that would encourage others to tackle their fears head on, as well.  I went on a stock website, purchased this background image and then added the words “if you never try, you will never know.”  Once it was finished, I uploaded my artwork to photography.com and went with the modern, sleek, acrylic print option.   The finished piece is absolutely the centerpiece of the room and really brings a fun, bright, positive message to the entire room.

Thinking about boutique hotels, there is always that one, beautiful, comfy chair where you can sit and relax, read a book or even get on your laptop.   It didn’t take long for me to find the perfect chair for our guest room on Wayfair.com.  It’s gorgeous, comfortable and goes perfectly in the room, adding a touch of class and taking up the bare space near the closet.

Workspace.

I knew I wanted to add a desk and was lucky enough to have one already in the house.  We purchased this double desk and matching chairs for our two oldest daughters at Ikea years ago. While they used it for a bit, somehow they found that they’d rather do their homework on the kitchen table or on the floor.  Go figure.  So we moved this into the guest room, added some cute and decorative cloth baskets from Target (perfect for storage) and a lamp that we had also purchased from Ikea years ago. Voila… the perfect desk area for our guests!  It’s also turned into my little working space lately which has been nice!

Memories.

About 5 years after my Grandfather passed away, we were at a local fair.  We walked into the craft show building and right in front of me was this beautiful carved wooden sign.  I knew we had to have it.  It’s been proudly displayed on the wall ever since and goes perfectly with the new guest room’s theme.  It’s like a part of him will always be with us, each time I look up at this sign.

Overall, I’m so pleased with how the guest room turned out.  It’s become a room where the girls and I come in and lay down to watch a movie (and usually fall asleep because the bed is that comfy).  I can’t wait to welcome some more guests.

A Special Deal.

If you’re in the market for a new mattress, I highly recommend Leesa and now is a great time to try it out.  Just go to Leesa.com and use code evergreen for $100 off this Leesa mattress. Plus, Leesa will give you 100 nights to fall in love with your new mattress, or they will give you your money back!  You literally have nothing to lose (except maybe the restless nights and back aches!). Hurry though, this code won’t last long.

So how did I do with the room?  Comment below and let us know!

Thanks for reading! Don’t forget to comment, follow, and share!

    Once the kids are gone this is one of the first things I am doing. It is a really nice way to get things back to normal when they’re gone.

    I am, or shall I say WE are, in the process of changing one of the bedrooms to a guest bedroom. Linens, a new bed and new flooring on tap once we finish painting the room. Your progress looks amazing.

    It sounds like you did a great job re-decorating that nursery. The thing about getting a mattress in the mail is what do you do with the old mattress? I have three old mattresses that I need to replace but I’ll need to get rid of my existing ones. This Leesa mattress sounds awesome!

    I love the color scheme you chose. This is the color scheme i have in my bathroom. I also really like the desk. I’ll be moving on my own soon (graduating from college) and i cant wait to decorate. I’ll check out Leesa.

    That looks like a great mattress! We just redid our guestroom. I actually like the ideas you have here with a yellow and gray. Those are some really pretty colors. That bed looks beautiful and I might just do that myself.
