Decorating Around Dark Leather Sofas

Let's talk furniture, shall we? Steve and I purchased a very large and very dark leather sofa/love seat combo many moons ago. We spend a nice chunk of change on this furniture and it has held up like no other. It's had it's fair share of spills and couch jumps and climbing children and it's been our main seating source in our last three homes. The sofa is large enough for my 6'3" husband to comfortably stretch his legs and between the two of them, they hold a lot of people. There has never been a tear, a scratch, and we've never had to do any maintenance on these sofas.

Walt Disney World: Hollywood Studios

We're finally on the home stretch and I'm talking about the last leg of our Disney adventure! Hollywood Studios housed one of our favorite rides in all of Disney, we sang with Anna & Elsa, Drew got to fight Darth Vader on stage, and yours truly was picked to participate in the Indiana Jones Stunt Show. So, so fun!

Keeping Hydrangeas Perky

Happy Thursday! Just a quick pop-in to share a little tip I learned from another blogger regarding keeping hydrangeas from drooping. I tried it yesterday and it worked, so I wanted to share with you. I just love having these on my desk space!

Indoor Summer Home Tour

Welcome and hello summer! I thought I would share a little more of the inside of our home with a mini summer home tour! I plan to do a separate post with our outdoor space, porch, and patio. Summer is my favorite time of year when things are lush and green outside and the sun is shining bright inside. Longer days, warm nights, and no early bedtime routines makes this momma happy!

I don't really do much to change things up, just add a few touches here and there and rearrange a few things. I love plants, which do most of the talking this time of year. The natural light and open concept provide most of my happiness on this first floor. This is the view from walking in our front door. That little pink stool is adding a nice touch of fun to this room! I also recently added that hanging gold dipped concrete planter. The more plants, the better, in my opinion. We also just washed the interior and exterior windows in our home, so everything seems lighter and brighter than before.

Walt Disney World: Animal Kingdom

I decided to just break up all parks into four separate posts. If you missed any previous posts you can see find them here… Logistics, Epcot, Magic Kingdom. Even though we didn't spend a ton of time at Animal Kingdom, we visited there on two separate days to get done what we had on our list. We originally didn't even think we would have time to get to Animal Kingdom, but as you read in previous posts, we had more than enough time to get to everything! If you have the time, I would check it out!

Eat In Kitchen

It is a goal of mine to start showing you more of our home, on the blog and on Instagram, no matter how "done" they are. Our home is most definitely a work in progress, but that always means there is something for me to do or change. Why not show how we currently live instead of waiting for the "reveals"?! I love seeing little vignettes and people's every day lives, which is why I love Instagram so much. Click here if you want to follow along with LLL. We have made a few changes to our eat in kitchen area recently, and are planning a few more. Here it is in its current state.

Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom

Next up on our tour through Disney is to recap our time at Magic Kingdom. We visited MK twice in a four day time span. Seeing the castle for the first time with your kids is nothing short of magical and everything you want it to be. If you missed the first two parts of this trip, you can find all logistics HERE and our Epcot recap can be found HERE. I have also included a "Travel" tab at the top of the page with all of my travel recaps.

I love this photo because there is no one else around! We were able to get into the park early one day because we had Be Our Guest breakfast reservations at the Beast's Castle (see below).
