A Night Around the Campfire

It's about that time!

The nights are getting cooler and it's time to start thinking about sweaters and nights by the fires, which got me thinking about our new house.

I can't wait to move in. I can't wait to make it "our home". Kyle and I want an amazing back porch. We've already decided we are going to have to make that "phase 2" of the house as we have pretty much hit our max limit for the interior of the house.

That doesn't mean a girl can't dream right?

Roasting marshmallows by the fire while wrapped up in a blanket.  Sounds like heaven doesn't it?

I've been making idea boards on Wayfair for our entire house. It's so nice being able to see everything I want in our house in one place. It's easy to add and take off. They'll also send an email if any of the items you want come back in stock! So you can jump on it.

Hope my idea board gives you some inspiration for the impending chilly season!

What are you looking forward to the most this fall and winter?

LuLaRoe Love

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for clothes that'll fit my momiform.

Ya know. Something comfortable, something quick to throw on, and something that looks cute.

My cousin Kelsey sells LuLaRoe and she sent me some of their adorable pieces and can I just say, yum.

Yes yum. They are so soft, so comfortable, and I get compliments all day long.

So if you are looking for some new staples to your closet, check this brand out.

They carry limited quantities of the patterns and sizes so you don't see the same clothes everywhere. They truly are one of a kind pieces.

They have tons of patterns and tons of options.

My favorite shirt is the Randy.
Feels like butter. I kid you not. So soft, not thick, so I can wear during the summer. Dress it down with jean shorts and converse or dress it up with skinny jeans and wedges. For reference, I'm wearing a medium.

They also carry adorable leggings. Remember how the Randy shirt felt like butter? So do the leggings. They have TONS of patterns to choose from. The leggings are one size fits all. 

The top I'm wearing is the classic T. You can pair it with leggings or jeans shorts. I love wearing a lace bra underneath so that it barely peeks through. Adds a fun touch! I'm wearing a medium here.

The last piece is named Irma. They fit very big. I'm wearing an XS small here. I could have done a small in the arms, but it would have been too big every where else. I love pairing it with a nice vest. I wore it to Raegan's first day of school.
Which brings me to my next point. All the pictures I posted of the pieces are of me in every day life. I didn't plan a photoshoot to show them off because I wanted to show you how versatile they are and how easily they fit into my wardrobe. This is real. This is how I dress every day. This brand is a wear every day brand and that's what I love about it!

If you're interested in seeing some more pieces, head over to Kelsey's Facebook page. You can join and see all the great items she has for sale. I know she just got a shipment in and she told me it's her favorite yet!

House Reno

A lot has been happening in the Sanderson family. In the last month we have sold our house, moved out, moved in with my parents, went to Jamaica, bought house, and we are starting renovations on our new house tomorrow.


We are getting settled in with my parents and once demo starts tomorrow hopefully everything will continue to move along and we will be in by Christmas.

Fingers crossed.

The house we chose was built in the 70's. A sweet older couple were the original owners and her husband passed away. She moved into assisted living and her daughter's sold the house.

Everything in the house is from when it was built. It's never been updated. 

Until now.
We have met with a general contractor and it's going to be the most amazing house. It's like we are starting over with just the bones of the home. Here's the 3D model of all the changes. They are just of the downstairs because the upstairs is just going to need some paint and redo the bathrooms. Nothing structural.

We are knocking down the interior wall of the kitchen that includes a wet bar and a powder bath to open up the downstairs. The powder bath is being moved to the formal dining room which we are making a play room. You can see the powder bath and play room in the picture below right to the right when you come in the front door.

This is the most amazing house for us.

It has 5 bedrooms on a third of an acre. Such a beautiful backyard.

We are also redoing our master bath because right now there is a vanity in my bedroom. Yep. A sink. In my bedroom. That needs to go away. Like yesterday.
We are closing in that opening to be the bathroom doors and then inside in the bathroom is going to be so amazing!

 There will be a tub under the sink. Just haven't picked it out yet. And there will be a cabinet between the sinks and individual mirrors. I got that inspiration from here, but I plan to move the cabinet on the left in between the sinks.

To give you a little perspective, our vanity is 9 feet long. Every girls dream!

And my favorite part of our bathroom is the fact that my closet has a door attached to my laundry room. Ahh! So amazing!
They are also giving me a laundry shoot from upstairs down into the laundry room.

I can't wait to give updates throughout the process and then an unveiling of our new home.
