Awwwww.....our first house! The one where we lived in the garage while we did the addition. Fun fact: when I dream while sleeping, and the scene has me at ‘home’ it’s in this house, which we moved from in 2006. Found this while cleaning out cabinets and tossing old stuff. The upside to purging is all the memories you find. We didn’t purge nearly well enough last time, and aside from the fun things like this that I’ve found, I’ve also enjoyed tossing paperwork/drawings/folders that I never want to see ever ever ever again. I probably broke that ‘keep it for 7 years’ rule a few times, but oh well. Bad vibes can’t live here anymore. #firsthouse#kindergartendrawings#architectlife#babysteps#longlongtimeago#DIYlife
After priming 16 shiplap boards with a 4” roller, I am seriously considering pulling the trigger on the @gracopaintsprayers cordless TC Pro (pun intended). I know it’d be a huge help with this bathroom makeover, but my mind is already running wild with other projects it could tackle now that the weather is finally turning nicer.
Question- for those already in the Graco club, what’s the best part about this sprayer? Is it really a game changer?

Did you watch Fixer Upper this past weekend? Joanna Gaines designed an absolute dream garden. It was so perfect in every way. I have a nice big garden space at our house but it is nowhere near that amazing and lacking in the dream shed department. Watching that episode and the fact that it’s supposed to be 70 tomorrow has me itching to start outside projects. We just need to get through our bedroom and bathroom remodel first. For now I will stick to #fauxgreenery 🌿
I showed this in my Instastories a couple of weeks ago but never put it on my feed! This is my super inexpensive, easy way to organize wrapping paper in my office (that i use for printable backgrounds). Just grab a few of those cheap white curtain rods and mount to the wall...the rods pop off of the mounts really easily in case you ever need to change out the roll and it gets all of that paper out of the way!
Day 1 of my REDO is done!! Sometimes life has a way of telling us to chill out for a bit. And then sometimes we have a way of telling ourselves to use that time to #treatyoself more often than you should.
So today was the start of my MFing REDO 🤘 I have got major goals for this pregnancy and not having excessive weight gain is at the top of that list. I want to stay healthy throughout this entire pregnancy and thankfully I have the TOOLS and ACCOUNTABILITY to do just that!
Whether you’re pregnant or not, I’d love some company. Join me for a fun pilates/yoga/strength/cardio based workout program and let’s reach our health goals togethaaaaaa ✌️❤️
SCIENCE NEWS: doTERRA Rosemary and Wild Orange Study
In their efforts to continually advance our understanding of the biological activities of essential oils, doTERRA scientists recently published a study examining CPTG® essential oils in the Dermatology section of Cogent Medicine. The study investigated the action of Rosemary and Wild Orange essential oils in the BioMAP® system, which simulates human skin cells in a compromised environment.
The study found that these oils were able to diversely impact proteins and genes in human skin cells. Specifically, Rosemary essential oil strongly impacted processes closely related to cellular health and metabolism. Wild Orange essential oil robustly impacted cellular health, immune response, and metabolism processes. These findings are largely consistent with existing research, supporting the beneficial effects of these essential oils.
This study was the first to evaluate the impact of Rosemary and Wild Orange essential oils on human genome–wide gene expression in human skin cells and will provide important evidence and basis for further research into their biological and physiological mechanisms of action.
Up on the blog today..... My big bedroom reveal! I’ve been busy this past month overhauling what was once an ugly, beige box into the luxurious bedroom of my dreams! And well, it’s all done! Blog link in bio of you want to see more, plus all the before and afters! 📸

I recently posted about my sanding belts always ripping. And a bunch of people told me to try @gatorfinishing belts. So I did! And I really love that you can install them in either direction. The other ones confused me with the arrows... ha! No more confusion! And hopefully no more belt ripping! Thanks @gatorfinishing !!
Project complete! I still get giddy when I see my logo burned into my pieces 🙌. Video coming soon! (Branding iron from @gearheartindustry )

In such a festive mood 💕 I just got so so teary eyed after being on the receiving end of a very kind gesture/gift. It reminded me of scene on TV where a homeless person was in tears after being given a few basic items like clothes and a simple meal. It was not the physical items that triggered such deep emotions but the realization that maybe the universe hadn't forgotten about them 🙏🙏 #itsthethoughtthatcounts

Attempted to teach a wood sign painting group with my Women's Club. Those who stuck it out did awesome! I definitely didn't account for the difficulty factor. My definition of "beginner" wasn't the same for some of the ladies! Oh well, we had fun! #diylife#woodsigns#paintclass
