#framefarme: pantry

on-the-go SNACK TRAY

This post has been sponsored by Mott’s. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Our two+ week holiday break is now over and as much as I loved the quality time with my big boys, my house is a wreck and I haven’t been able to check my emails in days. I am definitely ready for the routine and a little bit of down time to get back in the swing of things! I’ve been tackling the organization of an area every week or so in the house. The pantry is a work in progress, but I get asked about … Read more

metal dining table ideas

After a years long hunt turning up nothing we loved, Russ insisted on making our dining table. Trouble is, he hasn’t had a second to do it, so here we are 6 months moved-in and still no dining table. It’s totally fine and we’ve gotten away with it, but I am so excited to get this project started! Since he has made the shift toward fabrication (welding and metal work) of course he wants to have some metal elements with the table. Our kitchen is all really light wood, the floors are pretty light wood-look tile as well. So I’d … Read more

Winter Whites

Winter Whites

I posted this outfit the other day and had lots of Qs on how to recreate it! This dress is a pretty basic shift that Jcrew gets a version of every year so keep your eye there but I’ll link lots of options below! Jacket is old Zara and boots were a Postmark find! Winter Whites is pretty loose in the sense that it’s off white, cream, soft greys, blush pinks, lightest washed out blues, neutral beige, bone, or even stark white, all mixed and matched! I love it on pale skin and in front of a Wintry landscape. Its … Read more

laundry with kids

I asked sort of jokingly when I could have my kids take over in the laundry department and was blown away at how many parents already have their kids doing a good chunk or ALL of it!! Way to go! It seemed like the average age is 10, some as young as 6 and lots around 12 like I was. One mama was telling me how it has taught her kids to treat their clothing more respectfully, and they don’t just shove clothes in the hamper to get it off the floor because they know then THEY have to wash … Read more

houseguest how-to

Sponsored by Quilted Northern®. All thoughts are my own! So my sister and her family stayed with us for Thanksgiving, and our bunk room was put to full use! My older sister and I haven’t lived in the same state in 10+ years and if you’ve ever dealt with this, you know that I feel like I’m making up for lost time! All the missed playdates and sitter swapping and grocery store runs and nights out. I wanted her whole family to feel accommodated, of course, but especially her. I hoped that she’ feel pampered and that it’s a little … Read more

Light The World 2018

Hunter Fowler

So excited to participate in church’s annual service oriented Holiday Advent starting December 1st (Saturday!) They do such a good job making the month of December more meaningful with daily ideas and tasks. I have loved doing it with my kids and feel like we need it more than ever this year. You can download it here! I love that they have weekly videos to inspire and share with my family to recenter ourselves each week of the month, too! Here is the first week’s! And now for the real story + the why! I read somewhere that traditions give … Read more

MIA

Where have I been? Let me tell you! Dress // Shoes // Jacket If you saw the Home Tour on Instagram last week you know that we had a photo and film shoot here at the house for a couple of days! I’m not able to share about it just yet, but it has consumed my thoughts for months! Knowing that I’d need to have the house photo-ready was more overwhelming than I realized when I signed on to do it. Somehow, Russ powered through and had it ready to go by about 2 am the night before. For someone … Read more

#framefarme: mud + garage

#framefarme mud + garage

I feel like I always come in from the car with my hands full of groceries, babies, the babies’ stuff (he’s obsessed with carrying his backpack around) and messing with keys is just not gonna happen. Kwikset partnered up with us for our home build and one of their awesome locks solved all my full-hands problems! Their Kevo line is all smart, blue tooth technology locks and we have loved the look of their Contemporary lock! You sync it on your phone with an app and then all you have to do is wave your hand across the lock and … Read more

at home carpet cleaning

After seeing my townhouse carpets looking brand new after a carpet cleaning, I knew that if I could find a way to keep my carpets looking that clean, I might just love carpet again! Part of my problem being I’d have to clean them more than just once every couple of ayears, ha! When Hoover reached out and said they had a new SmartWash Automatic Carpet Cleaner that would do the job without making my head spin — I was in.At home carpet cleaners always felt daunting to me and I guess I wasn’t alone because Hoover put their engineers … Read more
