about me, weekend recap

Scenes from my weekend…

  1. How fun (and busy)! I love your camel and black coat.

      Thanks! It’s actually a random find from Sears! I went in to put up a tool for Jon and came out with a coat! I don’t know if they still have it. I bought it around November, but just started wearing it now.

  2. Cathy says:

    I love the candid shots, maybe just do those and your little guy will forget his fear of the camera?

    • effortless says:

      I do try candid shots, but lately when he sees my phone come out for photos he freaks out. I think he is starting to find it funny and is covering his face for a laugh. We shall see how it goes.

  3. Emily says:

    Don’t want to be mean. You’re kids are adorable. But, MAYBE…stop trying to take pictures of your kids if they don’t want it. If I google “Hudson photos” your child shows up. Do you want that all over the internet? I love your DIYs and other projects. I DON’T need to see your children all over the internet, and they and/or your husband may not like it now or in the future, either.

      Hi Emily,

      Thanks for your concern, but I’m a mom so I’m always going to take pictures. Do I need to post them on my blog? No I guess I don’t, but my blog is as much for me as it is for my readers and I like to share some aspects of my personal life on it. It’s an online journal of sorts for me and I like looking back on my weekend recap and seeing what I did with my family that weekend. Hudson actually loves seeing the photos of them up on the blog. He is just a 3 year old who like to argue with his momma and since I want photos he doesn’t. Simple as that.

      Thanks for your concern.

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, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

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 […]
