Time Blocking – Making your time WORK for YOU!

I’ve been talking about Time Blocking and how it can work for a Stay At Home Mom  recently, but what exactly is Time Blocking? Put simply, its the process of blocking out specific times of the day for specific tasks. Or put in Stay At Home Mom speak, its a way to LOL at yourself for believing you can actually schedule your day ?! But… what if I told you….it kinda works? I’ve been on this “get organized, be productive” kick recently (and if you want to find out why you can head ➡️ here) but realized that at the end of the day I’m left feeling like nothing was accomplished and kinda wondering where my day went. I just started Time Blocking and can already see Read More

DIY Pallet Bookshelf

When I was pregnant and thinking about the nursery I just knew I needed a bookcase or bookshelf! I love reading and I definitely wanted to share that with Joaquin. So I searched Pinterest and came across a bookshelf made from a pallet. I instantly loved it. It was perfect for the look I was going for and wouldn’t take up floor space. So I tasked my hubby with finding a pallet, as always when I told him what it was for he just kinda looked at me and said “ooohkay” ツ.  This project was super easy and I absolutely loved the final product!   What you need: A pallet A saw for cutting Screws & Drill Sanding paper Stain Rags or brush for staining Studfinder Alex cut the Read More
