It took a few months, but I’ve finally built up a solid collection of books for Hayes. There are a handful of books from my childhood (literally, my mom saved some of them for me) and a whole bunch of new ones filling up his shelves.
So, I thought I’d share my absolute favorites because it took me a while to find books with cool illustrations and interesting or creative messages. Bonus – To make it super easy, every book in this roundup is available on Amazon!
With the new year already here, I’ve been brainstorming ways to get organized. And after a quick trip to the craft store, I came up with a wall hooks idea to give my jackets, bags, scarves, etc a much-needed place to hang on the wall.

It can be hard to get motivated to work on moving your body again after a month of crazy holiday sweets and mashed potatoes. And I must admit, that I’m in that boat too. BUT I have a little trick to get myself motivated right away in the new year, and while it may not work for everyone, it does for me, so I wanted to share. It’s this…
Not sure if it’s the start of the new year or what, but I’m in full-on cleaning mode lately. Anyone else?
I had a few handhold brooms that I’ve had on heavy rotation for small messes. And I started thinking – if they’re going to be out all the time, I might as well make them look better. So I dyed them! And now I can display them when not in use (hanging from my DIY peg rail and they look pretty decent…as good as a broom can look anyway. Ha.
