Gallery Wall

Amy took AWESOME photos back in June, and I knew I wanted to showcase them all, but just wasn't sure how. I was hesitant to put them all in the living room because I feel like, why would anyone want to look at them, all the time. I sit in there, and I see the kids all the time, but I must admit, I LOVE to look at the pics! I got my inspiration here. Especially the subway art. I started by adding the wainscoting, I knew I would love this, I had it in my old house and loved it there & Brooke added it to her kitchen and I LOVE the way it turned out. hint hint...the next project is kitchen What I like the most is I used all products and frames that I already had, I bought nothing outside of the supplies for the wainscoting. 
For the Subway art I knew I wanted to use words/dates that were important to our family dynamic. When looking online these were upwards of $200 and I knew I wasn't paying that much! So I sat down on a Friday night at my photoshop blank canvas and went dow…

Going, going, gone

Summer is winding down...this makes me sad, because I know bad weather is around the bend, kids are going to go back to school tomorrow, earlier to bed and up early again. I do like that the routine will be back in place, the kids are so ready for that too! We have done so much 'back to school' shopping this past week, i am so done with it! Friday afternoon was shoes
got to love the Buy 1 Get 1 Half at Famous Footwear!

We always go prepared with a note and plant for the teacher, Wyatt needs to charm them from the get go to start off on the right foot. He wanted to take a card and flower for Mrs. Patay, his teacher last year, just because he loved her so much. I LOVE that he thinks like that. She is the best and had such a positive impact on him and shaping his academic future.

The girl is in 4th grade, WO…
