Our Home Story- What Changed During Our 4th Year

Our Home Story

Hey friends!  It’s hard to believe that it was 4 years ago this month that we moved into this home.  If you are new to the blog, welcome!  Just to catch you up to speed, we live in a split level home that was built in 1996.  The previous owners did some updates to the home during the time they lived here, but some things have not been touched in years.  We have kept ourselves very busy updating this home and making it ours, all on a tight budget.  I have written a post each year at around this time to show what progress we have made during each year of living here, and if you would like to catch up on those, you can click here, here, and here.  Go ahead, I’ll wait!

Sweet Parrish Place Style {Vol. 50}


Hey friends!  I have missed being around the blog for the past several days, and I have so much to share with you all and so little time to get it all together!  Although I have had the summer off, we have attempted to jam pack it all with so many wonderful experiences and memories, and it's still not quite over.  I will soon be sharing some of our trip to LA and the Smokey Mountains with you guys, and a DIY pallet project I completed for my lower back deck, and I am preparing to start on my upstairs bathroom.  I sure hope you will stick around for all of it!  But today I thought I would share a new style post, because I haven't shared one in two months!  I don't know how that is possible!  Just in case you miss my style posts, I post daily outfits on Instagram on the regular.  I love to wear jeans of various colors and styles on cool Summer evenings, and here are some of the different ways I have styled jeans over the past couple of months.

Hey friends! It's time for our weekly Totally Terrific Tuesday party!   If you didn't know, I am one of the new cohosts of this weekly link party, and I am so excited to be cohosting with this lovely group of women!  Please hop over and check out their blogs, all of them are unique and remarkable in their own ways.  This is a great group of ladies and I cannot be more excited about this union.

We took a break from hosting the party last week due to the 4th of July holiday.  But we are back this week with some great features for you from the party two weeks ago!  I am writing this post from the Great Smoky Mountains, we are on a little family vacation, and so I probably won't be having any new posts for the rest of the week after today, but I will be back next week, and for the rest of the summer, our travels will be over.

If you are a blogger, please link up to our party and share what you have been up to lately. Feel free to link up your latest DIY projects, recipes, and other creations!  I can't wait to see what you have been up to lately!  If you aren't a blogger, there is so much eye candy for you to click over to in this link party!  Just scroll through all of the links, and click any that catch your eye!

Trashtastic Treasures- File Cabinet Makeover


file-cabinet-makeover-1

Hey friends!  Welcome to Trashtastic Treasures!  I am so glad you are joining me today, I have a great file cabinet makeover to share with you.  Trashtastic Treasures is a series on my blog where I take something I thrifted or already own, and give it a brand new life!  I have been on the lookout for two matching file cabinets that I could make over for a couple of years now, but have never been able to find two matching ones.  Until a couple of months ago when I found these beauties at The Mission. I scooped them up for $15 for both.  They were different colors, but the exact same size and hardware.  Take a look at the before pictures below.

Packing Tips For The Girl Who Wants To Take Everything

Packing for the girl who wants to take everything

Hey friends!  I have been back from our first trip to Los Angeles, CA for four days, and I am still completely gushing over it!  It was definitely a trip I will never forget, and I cannot wait to tell you all about it.  I have a series of posts planned about the different places we visited!  But today I wanted to talk to you about packing!  I tend to be an over packer, I'm not gonna lie!  Especially when I am going to a place I have always wanted to go.  I want to look good, and i want to have options!  When the airline says that I can check a bag up to 50 lbs., you had better believe my bag is going to way 50 lbs., pretty much on the nose.  I know some of you might frown at this and be totally into packing lightly, and I sometimes am too.  But not when I am going to LA for the first time in my life!  I wanted to fit every last thing into my bag that I possibly can.  So if you can relate to my mentality on this, then this is the packing post for you sister!  Read on!
