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 […]

Now with the boys they are all about holiday decor! They want to celebrate it all! We decked out the windows for St. Patricks and now since that holiday has […]



A couple of years ago I decided to start hosting a cookie exchange. I’m not going to lie I was hoping it would end up being a yearly tradition, but wasn’t sure if I would keep it up. I’m happy to say that this year was my 4th year hosting it. It’s become something that […]

Holiday decorations can be pricey. I typically like to stock up at the end of the season. Here on Long Island we use to have a store called, Fortunoff, and they had a massive Christmas area that was filled with everything you would want. On the 26th of December it all went 50% off and […]

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.
