Make It : Swing Arm Lamp

Hey Guys! I've been drooling over the lamps at One Forty Three for what seems like years now, and every pic I see come through my pinterest feed featuring a swing arm lamp I automatically pin.

Obviously, I wasn't going to be electrifying any lanterns, but I realized that the basic technique could READ MORE

Backyard Hammock

Guys! Check out the best new thing to happen to happen to my backyard dream scene. My new hammock, lovingly given to me by my boys for Mo's day (aka Mother's Day). I'e been thinking a hammock could be a really great addition to the backyard for the last year or so, I just wasn't sure about the size. Our yard isn't that big, and the lawn is valuable real estate.

Thinking About : Big Box Store Ceiling Fans

Friends! There is something that you may not know about me... I love sleeping with all of the fans on! Dudes, I am not even kidding around here, this is serious business! Not only do we have two ceiling fans in our master bedroom, but we also have an oscillating fan to boot. It's just the way it is. Don't judge. I never had the problem of needing a constant breeze in our bedroom prior to moving into our house. Our current bedroom just happened to come with two junky old ceiling fans READ MORE
