I said I’d never match clothes with my daughter (if I ever had one) but here I am ❤️ And loving it! What’s something you said you’d never do before kids? #valentineoutfits #motherdaughterbond #motheranddaughters #girlmom #momandme #motherhoodmoments #valentinesweater #targetfinds #mommyandmefashion #girlmomlife #momoffour

We’ve lived in this house 9 months and I’m finally getting around to truly styling these shelves. In the early stages of designing our home I came across an image on Pinterest that had a cabinet nearly identical to this and I fell in love with it! I love having a space to display favorite dishes, vases and other kitchen items. We have large drawers underneath too that have been great for storing holiday paper ware, table linens and more! If your renovating or building highly recommend including a cabinet like this! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bhghome #currenthomeview #homedesigns #homeinspo #homestyling #inmydomaine #interiorinspiration #interiorstyling #kitchendecor #kitchendesign #ltkhome #ltkstyletip #makehomeyours #myhousebeautiful #neutralhome #neutralstyle #pocketofmyhome #prettylittleinteriors #shelfdecor #shelfie #shelfstyling #smmakelifebeautiful #smpliving #styleathome #styleithappy #targetfinds #targetstyle

From the minute we started designing our kitchen I knew I wanted to include a cabinet like this! They’re so great for hiding things you don’t always want to be seen- in this case our bar area. I love hosting and when we do, I prefer to have everything accessible for our guests. But on a daily basis, we don’t really use (or need) this space, so I love having the option to close it up too! We worked with our cabinet maker to design one that fit our needs, including doors that slide all the way back and come right down to the counter top, open shelving on the inside and even a spot for an outlet. Follow along for more home design ideas and tips! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #cabinetry #cabinets #classicstyle #customhome #designbuild #homebar #homedetails #homeideas #homeimprovement #homeinspiration #homeinspo #homerenovation #homestyle #housebeautiful #howyouhome #instahome #interior123 #kitchencabinets #kitchendesign #kitchengoals #kitcheninspiration #kitcheninspo #kitchenremodel #kitchens #kitchensofinstagram #newbuild #pocketofmyhome #realsimple #renovation #sodomino

How many Valentines are too many? Asking for a friend ❤️ Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had another busy one- so busy that I actually forgot the time of Max’s basketball game and he missed it (and his team pictures)🤦‍♀️ He shed a few tears… and so did I. As a parent, I think one of worst feelings is knowing you let your child down. I kind of redeemed myself when we took the boy’s to my see my Alma Mater’s basketball team, DePaul University, play against one of their biggest rivals. My team lost and Max promptly switched allegiance… guess he’s making me work a little for his forgiveness! Have you ever forgotten something important for your kids? Please tell me I’m not alone! .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bemyvalentine #boymomof3 #girlmom #happysunday #honestmotherhood #kidpajamas #letthembelittle #matchingpjs #momlife #momlifebelike #momlifestyle #momoffour #momproblems #momsofinstagram #momswithcameras #motherhoodjourney #motherhoodmoments #motherhoodunplugged #parenthood #parentinglife #realmotherhood #sahm #sibilings #siblinglove #sundaykindoflove #toddlermom #valentines

Super easy way to get kids excited about dinner- present it in a fun way. Added bonus- clean up is also super simple! At the start of this year I made a promise to myself that I would start cooking more and really make an effort to have dinner together as a family almost every night of the week. I make easy things the nights we’re on the go, so we can still sit down together beforehand. Tonight was one of those nights- this took hardly anytime and the kids loved it! We have burgers a couple times a month, but this was a whole new way of presenting it and they thought it was so cool! Such a little change that makes a big difference to them! What’s your favorite week night dinner? #familydinners #burgerboard #dinnerideas #dinnerideasforkids #easydinner #familymeals #fundinner #weeknightmeals #busymoms #simplemeals #kidfriendlyfood #mealplanningmadeeasy #mealplanningtips #makingfoodfun #makedinnereasy #mealtimewithkids

With four kids, on thing we knew for certain when building our home was that we wanted a locker system to hide, I mean contain, all the stuff. To get what we were looking for, custom cabinetry was going to cost A LOT. And honestly, we had other places we wanted to spend that money. Not to mention, we did something similar to this at our old house and loved it, so we decided to do it again! We purchased unfinished pantry cabinets from @homedepot, cut off the toe kick and mounted them on this custom made bench. We used the 90 inch height to give ourselves the maximum space. We also had electric installed in each locker so that down the road the kids can charge tablets, phones and anything else. It’s so nice for them to have enough space to store all their things and even nicer not to see it all! #mudroom #mudroomgoals #mudroomlockers #mudroomdesign #homebuilding #homebuildingtips #buildingonabudget #homerenovations #homedesignideas #moneysavingtips #homerenovationideas #homediyproject #smartbuilding #designhacks #mudroomlockers

Can’t hurry love, but you can celebrate it everyday! I usually don’t decorate too much for Valentine’s Day, but I know it makes the kids happy when I do (and I love it too!) so I decided this year I’m going to add a few touches to their rooms and the playroom. Emerson’s is first up- what do you think? #girlsroom #girlroomdecor #girlnursery #pinkroom #valentinedecor #rattandecor #kidsroominspo #girlsbedroomideas

I always love a good consignment shop find and this was no exception! If I’m being honest, my husband wasn’t thrilled because he figured it’d sit in our garage a few months before anything happened… and he wasn’t wrong, but the finished product is definitely worth it! All we did remove the varnish, add a couple coats of paint and some new hardware and that’s it! I love unique pieces like this that add character to our home!
