WHERE IS YOUR MOM’S ZEBRA RUG FROM?
This is one of my favorite decorating hacks to share. Have you ever found a print or style of carpet that you love, but you need it as a rug. Well I’ve got some good news for you! You can take carpet and have it turned into a custom size rug! All you have to do is get the edges bound/surged. It’s a great option if you can’t find the perfect rug for any space you are decorating. I did this in my house as well, and I fully intend to keep using this hack forever. Don’t make decorating harder than it has to be! Find what you love and just go with it.
HOW DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU WERE DONE HAVING KIDS?
Is it baby season or what? SO many questions about pregnancy, but bring it on. I will tell you all about my two pregnancies if you want. But knowing when I was done having kids? That was easy! BOY, GIRL, healthy, done!
Sometimes life just makes it easy for you. We were lucky to have one of each and with my husbands job at the time, we were constantly on the move. We moved 9 times to be exact. Moving just the two of us was hard, so adding a ton of kids wasn’t overly appealing. Plus we didn’t live near any of our family over the course of those 12 years. I never had a nanny, so two kids was about all I could handle alone. Plus to be really honest, I LOVE MY HUSBAND. I love being able to spend time with him and not feel like I am completely overwhelmed daily trying to keep a billion different schedules in check. I knew I could handle two kids. Kids are work and expensive. I wanted to be able to give both of my kids all the love, attention and care that they needed while still being able to live my own life. Also, it’s easier to get away and date your husband with two kids. Saying “hey can you watch my 2 kids?” goes over better than “hey can you watch my 6 kids??”. Ya know what I’m saying? Ha! I am fortunate to have one of each and I wouldn’t change a thing.
WHAT IS A CUTE WORK/LAPTOP BAG?
Before my life turned into the crazy, wonderful adventure that it is now, I was a nurse. Although I never needed a cute work/office bag, it is an essential item for a lot of you hard working girl bosses out there. Of course you need a bag that is large enough to hold your laptop and everything else you need, but it also should be pretty! I mean throwing on that great work outfit and your killer bag will make you feel like you can conquer anything that happens at work that day.
Here are a few bags that can go from work to dinner to an airplane, because honestly us working women NEVER know what could happen, so we have to be ready for anything.
