Declutter Your Home and Life FLASH SALE

As women, I think (at least I do) we often times feel like we are pulled in so many different directions, and it can be hard to keep everything organized and stress-free in our homes. This is a problem because I want my home to be a sanctuary. Somewhere I can go to NOT be stressed out and frazzled and feel cluttered. I know there are a lot of resources out there that can help me achieve this, but I’m never sure where to start, and purchasing a bunch of courses and guides can be really expensive.

On top of that problem, a lot of women want to be able to work from home, make their own schedule, and help with the family finances. What if I told you that you could get resources on organizing, de-cluttering, working from home, cooking, minimizing, faith, etc. all in one bundle that is over 98% off list price? What if I told you it was under $30?!?

What if I told you this bundle INCLUDES my online course, Social Side Hustle: 21 Days to Becoming a Social Media Manager? (retails at $197) 

All of these are part of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundlea collection of eCourses, eBooks, printables, workbooks, membership sites, and more! There are over 100 resources total!

Now, I get that it’s a HUGE number, but here’s the thing… even if just a handful of products apply to your life right now, it’s well worth the investment. You can always go back later and look at the other resources that may pertain to your life at a different time, because…this collection is yours to keep. It isn’t going anywhere.

So whenever you decide to focus on a new area (a work-at-home business, educating your kids, meal planning, a new printable planner, outfit ideas to freshen up your closet, etc.) you’ve got resources ready and waiting.

Everything in the bundle can be yours, but only if you buy it UNTIL TOMORROW AT MIDNIGHT.

Decorating and Organizing a Playroom

Hi! I’m Ashley and I blog over at The Pavement Princess. I’m so excited to be a guest blogger today for Through Heather’s Looking Glass. When I found out I was going to be doing a post for Heather, I was excited because she was looking for some home decorating/ organizational posts. I enjoy styling my house and I’m super organized, so this opportunity was perfect.

When I think of home decorating and organization, I immediately think of how everything should have a place. Throughout each aspect of my house, there is a perfect little space for each and everything. Yes I know it may be crazy to some, but the more organized a space is, the better. One of the biggest challenges I had with decorating and organizing was the playroom. The four walls we’ve designated as my six year olds “man cave” were just blah. There were so many aspects of this playroom that needed to have a place. So we finally have just that…a place for everything.


The Toys

What do you do with all those toys? What starts as a few toys here and there, turns into piles and piles of toys. I have two shelving units that keep everything nice and organized. The IKEA Expedit Shelving Unit (the unit on the left) houses so much stuff. I love all the different shelves. In fact, I own three of these…shh, don’t tell anyone. The smaller shelf (and bins) is from Target. They are from the ClosetMaid Cubeicals collection. This shelf is the perfect height for my son and it turned into a keyboard holder. I’m all about maximizing a space as much as possible.


We were lucky to be given a huge train & track set from friends whose son outgrew them. While we were thrilled at the collection, we had to find a place for all this new “stuff.” This organizer from Target turned out to be great. The height is so kid friendly too. My son has no problem getting things in and out the bins.



The teacher in me is always buying my son more books. Well how many books can one child (and his mother) have? The answer is…A LOT. The first two shelves are mine and the last two are his. Sometimes my son will even color using the bottom shelf as his workspace. He keeps his crayons and coloring books in the drawers.

Adding some personal touches to a room is a nice way to personalize a space. I’m always looking for ways to display my son’s work and accomplishments. One of the best ideas I’ve come up with is using framed corkboards. We have three of them throughout our home. This is a smaller sized one that we have in the playroom. My son loves to see his work on display and he changes it quite often.


I also have a sign for Playroom Rules with some pillows for lounging. Then there’s a cool personalized sign with my son’s name on it. This is his favorite room in the house, so the sign has all his favorites.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my son’s playroom. It is by far his favorite space and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Light the Fire


Good Morning! It’s another beautiful sunny COLD day here! The high is in the mid 70’s and the low tonight is 39! wow! To think 2 weeks ago it was 95 degrees and I was in a swimsuit. I finally got yesterday’s pictures uploaded so sharing time!

Bobby came home from the gym at nine and brought me a Smoothie King smoothie. How sweet! We went for a quick 3 mile run, and I wore a long sleeved shirt! After that we decided to do some cleaning and reorganizing. See, since we decided to move, we have started packing up boxes of things we don’t need right now and putting them in the garage. Well, we didn’t plan properly and it was all very disorganized and random.

    We had inherited a broken golf cart almost 2 years ago and never had it fixed, and we kind of boxed it in with our packing. Bobby decided to get it fixed so we had to move all the boxes to get it out, so we just decided to repack everything correctly once we got it out.

This is what we started with.  yikes.


The puppies wanted to hang out outside with us.




We finally got the golf cart out of the garage!


Told ya I wore long sleeves!


My girls don’t get along too well, so the fact that they were laying this close to each other make me so happy!


It took awhile, but here is the finished product!



After we got all cleaned up we ran a couple errands including grocery shopping and came home where I made a new chili recipe! (I will post it at some point with a picture.)

After we ate, we decided to do some burning. In our packing and cleaning out we had a ton of old papers with personal info on them we didn’t want to throw away, so we decided it would be a good night to burn them in the fire pit.






I enjoyed it. it was nice because it wasn’t TOO cold outside, but the fire was nice and cozy! We stayed out for about an hour or so until all the paper had burned and it was dark and getting much colder!

Then, this morning, Bobby made us waffles!


They were quite delicious. I added a little pumpkin spice to mine. Yumm-o!

Today we were supposed to go to the gym and do more cleaning at Bobby’s dad’s, but he isn’t feeling well so we are going to stay here, wait for the golf cart people to come pick up the golf cart, and then we have a chiropractor appointment this evening to get together a “game plan”.” I am excited about this because I so want my running to improve!!!

Tomorrow will be 5 miles. Normally it’s a tempo run or speedwork, but since we have the half marathon Saturday it will just be 5 easy miles.

Have a good day all!
