    Janell, you always make it looks so easy! Our mornings sounds very similar right down to the bus stop “look”. Happy weekend!

    I love your In Her Shoes series, it’s always such a fun look into the life of…

    I love how disciplined Janell is with keeping family time and computer time separate. I need to work towards that, and I’m not even a big blogger.

  4. I heart Janell! She’s always on my list to read in the morning and even though she’s among what I refer to the popular girls in the blog world she’s always so kind and gracious! I’m so excited to read her new magazine and wish her all the luck! (Ugh, I wish I could get up that early!!)

  5. Love the part about “unless someone decides the day is going to be grumpy.” I know all about that. . .. You get tons done during a day 🙂

  6. Janell Beals says:

    Thank you so much for having me here today Camila! It was so much fun to meet you in NYC, I hope our paths cross again in person very soon! Janell

  7. Janell is surely one to look up to! I’m still trying to wake up at 5am! I can’t wait until House of Fifty goes public. It’s certainly going to be a treat!

    Janell is such a wise Mom, she keeps organized with her family as her priority!! She seems to get it all done too!! She is quite a lady to be admired. Kathysue

  9. I love Janell. I especially like the bus stop rules. . . why didn’t my preschool hand out those rules!!!!

  10. I love this series…and love Janell. Fun having a visual…now I know why her comments post so early! Of course I’m just waking up too…so fun to wake up and see she’s already visited my blog!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
