Who Is A North Carolina Girl Again? This Girl!  2

Hey yall!

Reporting to you live from our little cutie patootie home on wheels! Aka, our camper’s paradise! Ha! So if you’ve been keeping up with me lately, you know that we recently moved back home to the Lake Norman area of NC, right outside of Charlotte. Our home is still on the market in West Virginia, so instead of rushing to buy a new place down here, we decided to just save money and stay in my hubby’s parents’ over sized camper. Yall, it has been a trip for sure! Read more

Babblings On A Monday  4

Hey yall!

I hope you had a perfect weekend! And got lots of R&R! We had a great weekend here in the mountains, complete with cooking together, clothes shopping, and getting things packed for our big move! Yall, last weekend was our last official weekend here in West Virginia! Eek!! It is so surreal to think that on Friday, Nick will be coming up here and we will be getting our final few things we need and be bringing our kitty boys back to NC with us! 4 more days yall…4 more days! Eeek!! It seems like such a short time, but it is feeling like an eternity! I am just so ready to go now. Patience? Yeah, that was a virtue that was never given to me, I do not posses it! Read more

April In Review and Living Situation News!  2

Hey yall!

 

So yesterday and the day before I was definitely in a funk. As most of you know, I have anxiety, and the past couple days were tough! But today, I am feeling more like myself so I wanted to blog some! I wanted to talk to yall about 2 things: what is going to be happening with our living situation and also giving you a recap of April in pictures! So the first thing I definitely want to talk about is what is going to happen with our living situation! Can yall believe this upcoming week is my last week in West Virginia?? Oh My Gosh!! That right there gets me out of my funk! The hubs will be coming up this weekend, and we are going to start the process of moving! It’s so surreal. So exciting though! If you’ve been reading my blog you know that I have been having major stress due to the fact that our house is still on the market and has not sold. Ok, so seriously it has only been 3 weeks on the market, but to someone like me, it feels like a year has passed. Oh anxiety. I’ve shed many tears over the fact that it hasn’t sold yet. I’ve mentioned in my past posts that we will be staying with Nick’s parents until our home sells so we don’t have to pay 2 mortgages. I’ve also mentioned that I am a huge nester and am constantly in a state of nesting. I love to be at home and work on things and redecorate. It is my zen. So even though this staying with his parents isn’t permanent, I still feel a little sad. I won’t be in my own environment with my things–I know that sounds awful yall, but I just like to be in my own space. I know it is not a big deal and there is so much to be grateful for, but living with anxiety makes everything seem like a big deal. I have been working on my anxiety and some days are better than others! I just got to keep reminding myself that this is not permanent! And at least we are at home! Read more

Weekend Junkin Finds  0

Hey yall!

So I sat here and started typing up a blog post about our little living situation for when we get back home to NC in less than 2 weeks (EEEEEEKKKKKKK! Cue the shrill squealing!), but then I decided to wait on it just for a little while! I have been doing so much of that lately. Typing up posts then deciding to not share them yet, any of my other fellow blogger friends like that?? But I will definitely be sharing this one because I will be having a whole new section to my website based on what I’m talking about in the post! Stay tuned! Read more

A Mini Tour of The Depot At Gibson Mill  0

Hey yall!

So I’m in a completely different blogging atmosphere than usual! Usually I am either in my home office or lounging in the recliner with my fur babies at my feet. Well today I am coming to you live from my parents’ house in NC on my mom’s laptop! Luckily, we have similar ones, so I got used to typing on it fast! I am home for the weekend for appointments, figuring out our new living situation at Nick’s parents’ house–luckily only about 15 minutes from my parents’ house!–, family time, and shopping!

Crazy Cat Lady Post: Arnold and Lenny Then and Now  0

Hey yall!

So this isn’t a home decor post, but I wanted to share some old photos of our kitty babies and more recent ones! Mr. Cozy Cat and I do not have kids (well human kids that is!) so like most of yall know, our 2 fur babies are our children. We treat them just like kids and they are pampered and spoiled more than most kids probably! Ha! It is hard for me to believe that Arnold and Lenny will be 4 in May! That just doesn’t seem possible! I’m sure that is how most parents feel about their kids. They have brought us so much happiness that it is hard to explain! Read more

My Rae Dunn Coffee Mug Obsession  18

Hey yall!

Ok, so I know I’m not the only one here with a Rae Dunn obsession going on. Am I right?! Rae Dunn is definitely taking the world by storm, and I definitely think the home decor Instagram world! I love scrolling through my Instagram and seeing all the new Rae Dunn goodies everyone is finding!  Read more

T-Minus One Week Until Shopping Overhaul!  2

Hey yall!

So the title of my post today sounds kind of extreme right?! But I am thrilled beyond thrilled because on Friday I will be heading down the mountain to do my own Christmas shopping. You may think, “What do you mean your own Christmas shopping?” Well this year, instead of buying each other (the hubs and I) gifts (because neither one of us could think of something to get each other!) we decided to set a certain amount of money aside for each of us to go buy whatever we wanted–our Christmas gifts! Some of yall may think, oh what is the fun in that? Well, true, but as many of us know, when you start getting older it is hard to think of something you want. In Christmases past, Nick and I have spent entirely too much money on each other, so this year, instead of just buying a bunch of stuff, we decided to take a certain amount of money and go buy things that we would actually use, etc. You get my drift! Now don’t get me wrong, I still love getting gifts (but really I love buying for other people more!)! I never know what to tell my parents to get me either, but my mama always gets some of the best things! So my surprise gifts will come from my parents and brother–he gets good gifts as well. So I think I will survive not having surprises from the hubby! Read more

December Christmas Photos  4

Hey yall!

How have yall been?! I have been MIA for quite some time, and I apologize! I have been taking care of business, enjoying the holiday time of year with my family, and sailing through the school days (Did I say sailing, I meant staggering, with a crutch, oh what am I saying? I have been on the ground, crawling through the school days-ha!)! We are done to the double digits on school days left, which means I am so close to my freedom. I am that much closer to living my life in a happy state of mind and being happy in my everyday routine! Yay! Read more
