The Polka Dot Room is back!


My sweet little 3 1/2 year old JoJo and her love for polka dots runs deep!  :)

I know some of you might be thinking "Why is Tracy decorating the girls rooms the same way they were at the old house?"  To answer that question is easy...

A. The girls chose their colors...again
B. Their Pottery Barn Kids bedding isn't cheap
C. I'm not trying to have a whole new room to decorate on top of the whole house! They both enjoy their room themes and so do I.

With that being said, both rooms will eventually have some new items and decor in them but to get them feeling like "their rooms" I have set them up the best I can right now. :)



 Wall Color is Blowing Kisses by Behr Paints
Bedding is by Pottery Barn Kids
Frame is from IKEA (I made the button "J" and fabric background)


Dresser is from Kanes Furniture
Mirror is from Home Goods
Arrow is from Target 

Crown is from Restoration Hardware Child
Lamp is from Old Time Pottery ... I painted it Gold and added the fabric to the shade. 

Canopy is from The Land of Nod  (This play canopy was always over her bed because her old room didn't have enough space! We are super excited to actually use it this way now.)
Faux Fur Rug is from IKEA

Gold Foil Prints are from Royal Prints.  You can find them on Etsy. The frames are from Dollar Tree! I just painted them Gold.

The Gold Polka Dots are from Wall Pops and are SUPER easy to put on and can be moved around! I even used these gold dots on the girls shared bathroom ceiling! If you head to my Instagram account I'm offering a 30% coupon code to use the entire month of December!! On any of their products!! 

Frame is from JoAnn Fabrics and print from online. 

Same thrifted/gifted table from our old neighbor...I  just repainted over the purple and made it pink to match her room. 




This print I found online and can't wait to add it...just searching for the perfect frame!

I did decide to not put up her yellow wall decor from the old house and originally from her nursery. I do plan on switching some things up;)  I have something else in mind for over her bed and also some new throw pillows.  

So for now her little room will stay like this until I decide or find something we both love!  Trying to make this house feel like home one step at a time. :)

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…
