Washing pots is one of my least favourite chores, however I'm still loving my massive white Ikea sink! I clean it with dish soap, and periodically with Bar Keepers Friend to get the rusty bits and scrapes out. Works great! #ourdiyhouse

saveyourforktherespie : So this is totally off topic.. Do you recommend a brand/company/website to buy wallpaper? I'm thinking of doing a wall in our dining room and I want to do something totally different.. Figured you were my number one to ask ☺️
thediymommy : @findamanda It's a cleaning solution that works well on porcelain. I found mine at Canadian Tire.
thediymommy : @piecestolove Good to know; thanks!
thediymommy : @saveyourforktherespie Lucky Duck! I wish my hubby didn't hate wallpaper so passionately. It depends on your budget; it can get really expensive. I'm lusting after @hyggeandwest papers right now. You can find decent looking ones at Hone Depot or Lowe's that are far cheaper though! Look at their online selection, it's better. πŸ‘
danielleb_c : I just love your house. Seriously, it's beautiful!
saveyourforktherespie : People have such a stigma about wallpaper!! It ain't what it used to be! It can be so beautiful!! I will check out all those recommendations! The wall is 8'x8' so I'm hoping it won't be too pricey 😐 Thanks for your help and I'll keep you updated!!
hyggeandwest : Thank you for the shout out! :)
findamanda : I'm all over it, I will try anything at this point lol

Doesn't she look perfect on my settee? #ourdiyhouse #coral #HomeDecor #interiordesign #dslr

It's my last day as a 31 year old. Here are some things I've learned (and what I'm still learning) this year: ❇ every breath I take is truly a gift from God ❇ the jump from 2 to 3 kids is tough ❇ it's OK to forgive, but then to make boundaries ❇ marriage = constant + honest communication through both the amazingly happy and the horrible times ❇ staring at my babies and playing with my kids trumps anything else that "needs" to be done during the day ❇ drinking boatloads of water is a good thing (especially if you drink boatloads of coffee) ❇ say "no, sorry, I can't" sometimes ❇ I can try my hardest to be a good Mom, friend and wife, but I ultimately have to bathe everything in prayer and the endless grace of God
rkrawz : You have figured out so much in your young life! Have a wonderful bday.
thisismamaandco : Happy birthday!! My favourite of your lessons...saying; no, I'm sorry, I can't - I think I need to do that more!

I'd be lying if I said I was doing well as a kindergarten mom. I can hardly count all of the #momfails I've committed (so far)! Number of times she's missed the bus? 1. Number of nut-laden snacks I've accidentally sent to school? 1. Number of dance classes forgotten? 1. Number of show and tell objects forgotten? 1. Number of bus numbers written down wrong? 1. I really hope there's not a no. 2 for all of these. #learning #alsogoingcrazy

naturalmommie : Trying not to laugh but I've been "that" mom more times than I can count! I totally feel your frustration! I have a kid in grade two he forgot his show and share this morning. What can you do. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ #graceupongraceupongrace
thediymommy : @naturalmommie There's way too much for my brain to remember. Yes, thank God for that ton of Grace. πŸ‘
thediymommy : @plumintdesign Don't we all. Thankfully our kids love us and we do the very best we can!
thediymommy : @4chickys Haha! Yes, I have three girls to go through! I'm sure the mistakes will be constant. Thank God for laughter and love to make it all smoother despite it all. πŸ˜†
thediymommy : @mamayenma Thank you!! I'm trying to keep my perspective, but this first couple of weeks of school was sure an eye opener! Thankfully,_Little C says she's been loving every minute of kindergarten despite all my mess ups. :)
thediymommy : @sewingkaren Sooooo true!
thediymommy : @amahopkins Thanks Allison!! You made my day.
thediymommy : @thisismamaandco Glad I'm not alone!! It can be so stressful trying to keep up. Little C has been having a blast this week, though, it's true! :)
