Our Boys’ Farmhouse Bedroom Tour

posted by Andrea | 08/21/2019 | 24 comments

I had SO much fun decorating the boys’ bedroom for our most recent “mini makeover”! I tried my best to tailor it to the boys’ personalities, likes, and interests — and I must have done a pretty good job because they were THRILLED when they saw their finished space. 

This room has odd sloped ceilings and some other challenges to work around, but thanks to some creative storage and “out of the box thinking”, I was able to create a fun and functional farmhouse bedroom for our boys!

James is 4!

Come read more about James, his Monster Truck party, and why we love this little guy so much!!

One of the cutest, sweetest, happiest boys around turns THREE tomorrow!! Can you believe it!

Today I’m sharing a few (OK, probably more than a few) of my favorite pictures from this past year, as well as some from his Bob the Builder birthday party this past weekend!

The Boys’ $5 Shared Bedroom Makeover

posted by Andrea | 07/28/2017 | 30 comments

Simon and James have officially been sharing a bedroom for almost a month now — and it’s going really well.

Today I’m sharing a tour of their “new” bedroom — and I’m extra excited because I made this transformation happen for less than $5!! Everything in this room was either repainted, repurposed from something we already had in the house, or simply rearranged — and I honestly feel like the room looks and feels so different.

James is TWO!

Prepare yourself for cuteness overload — James loves the camera!

Tomorrow my sweet baby James will be 18 months old!!!

Today, I’m sharing one very important lesson I’ve learned after 5+ years of motherhood — one that has completely changed my outlook on these years when so many others share their personal suggestions, opinions, and advice. 🙂

James is ONE!

A Peek Into Our Week

posted by Andrea | 11/16/2015 | 34 comments

Although I didn’t have as much time to work on “extra” projects as I would have liked, there are still quite a few updates from the Dekkers.

For starters, by the end of the week, we’ll have a 4 month old and a 4 year old in our house (yes, Simon is here too!). We also made lots of progress on our new shed — and I put squash in almost every meal I made 🙂

James @ 2 Months + a Family Update

It’s hard to believe that another month has gone by; yet at the same time, last month’s post seems like ages ago!

A lot has happened since last month — Dave started school, I returned to full-time blogging, and our kids are growing like weeds over here!

James’ Birth Announcement (and how I made them myself for pennies)

posted by Andrea | 08/28/2015 | 7 comments

Today I’m sharing James’ birth announcements I sent out a few weeks ago. Not only did I do the design myself (so it’s totally custom) but I also ordered them through Vistaprint with a coupon code so they were so inexpensive!

If you’re planning to order cards, announcements, invitations, etc. you’ll definitely want to read how I did it 🙂
