Updating Our Home

We have a very traditional home. It was built in 1940, and I absolutely love the formality of it in some regards. It has a formal dining, which I consider a must. It also has a formal-style living room, which I love most days. However, we have young kids, so sometimes a formal life doesn’t work for us. I recently purchased cubical storage shelves for our sunroom, and I cannot wait to get them put together!

I wanted the kids to have a corner of the room that they can have their joint toys (legos, crayons, etc.) together. I’ll post a picture of the completed project! I wanted to make sure all of the readers knew about Target’s discount on kids’ home items through the 20th! Get up to 25% off!!

Up to 25% off kids’ home + an extra 20% off bed & bath with code HOMEREFRESH Sun-Thurs. Valid 1/14-1/20 

I have been asked more about discounts lately, and I am a firm believer in not paying more than you have to. That being said, I will always make an effort to only showcase ads that I truly believe you, the readers, will benefit from. As always, thank you for reading!

Etiquette vs. Enough

I have a confession. I am addicted to Pottery Barn. In fact, my husband just chunks the magazines when he checks the mail now. I had longed for all things Pottery Barn when I was younger. My mom was very practical and wasn’t into “cutesy.” She was into functional. She has never once cared about brands, and this is an area I wish I shared with her more.

Before school started this year, I really struggled with wanting my daughter (who is soooo similar to my mom) to want a Pottery Barn backpack. But not just that. I wanted her to want the whole set. What did she want, though? The same backpack she had last year (it’s glittery and Frozen) and a lunchbag from Target. Nothing matched. She didn’t care.

I sometimes buy into the lie that I ask all of you to avoid – that certain brands are better than others; that etiquette costs money. None of that is true. Etiquette is about respect. It’s not about Pottery Barn.

One year I’m sure she’ll want a certain backpack, but it may just be from Walmart or Target. I came to realize that the values I had myself were ones I want her to avoid. What you have does not make you any better of a person. How you treat others, though, does.

Today, though, I’m thankful she’s confident enough in who she is to pick out what she truly likes and go with it. It is enough. 🙂
