Spring Home Tour


Hello! I'm super excited to post my Spring Home Tour on my new blog! I posted this once before on my wordpress account and felt I needed to share it here as well.  I try to find the best possible deals when decorating for seasons and holidays.  A lot of my items were purchased at the end of season from previous years and I continue to pull them out each year! I hope you enjoy and welcome to my home.....
 This is the DIY planter Box I made out of three pieces of Fenceboard. I filled it with some mason jars and green clippings from the yard. 
 Flower crate and silver ottoman tray from Marshalls. Faux plants from IKEA and JoANN Fabrics. Wooden lantern from Target. 
 Fresh yellow Tulips from Walmart. Vase is actually a Crate & Barrel water decanter. 
 I got this beautiful faux orchid and striped table runner from Marshalls.
 Dried Lavender bunches ordered from Amazon.

 Both of these wreaths came from JoAnn Fabrics at the end of the season making them 70% off.  I love pulling these out each year!
 Boxwood planter and whitewashed bunny from Marshalls.
 Waterford Crystal cross and Target Store hurricane.  I filled the bottom of the hurricane with some DIY eggs I made from plastic Easter eggs,  (chalk painted and twine wrapped on the bottom)
 Another view of the DIY planter box.  I had been wanting one of these for so long! Such an easy and money saving project!
 Pottery Barn chalk board with updated "Spring" chalk art.
 I found this super cute galvanized tub at Marshalls and filled it with my boxwood bundle from Target.
 I updated my console table by adding my JoAnn Stores crate and placing my mercury glass pillars inside. 
 DIY grapevine wreath.  I added an initial (that I painted) and three faux hydrangeas with a burlap bow.
This was an Easter decoration I made by cutting out a bunny silhouette from an old book and gluing on a cotton ball tail!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
