The Foyer in Our New Home (New Artwork from Minted)

This post is sponsored by Minted. 

We’re slowly but surely getting settled in our new home. Summer is a great time to move because of the relaxed schedule, but I have also been trying to make sure we make time to have fun and aren’t just spending the entire season unpacking boxes. That means we’re still not 100% settled (far from it!) but we’ll get there– eventually!

I showed off our Master Bedroom last week, and this week I wanted to show you our foyer/entrance area. I prioritized this part of the home because well, first impressions and all, but also because this is as far in our home as many of our guests get so I wanted it to look nice, especially while the rest of the house was still in chaos.

New Roman Shades in Our New Master Bedroom

Our master bedroom space is fairly high on my priority list for this home. While I have decorated my bedroom in our previous homes (see the last iteration here), somehow it seems to always be lower on the list than our public rooms.

The best hamburger recipe--easy and delicious, plus tips for grilling | 11 Magnolia Lane

The Best Hamburger Recipe

We try to use the grill as often as possible during the summer--I always feel like clean up is easier, and of course who wants to turn the oven or stove on when it's so hot outside?! One of our favorite weeknight recipes is to make sliders on the grill, and after years of trying different … [Read More...]

Simply on Sunday

Happy Sunday, friends!  Today I'm sharing a printable that we created a few years ago of Psalm 51:7.  I have mine in my laundry room, because it says, "Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow," but of course it would work anywhere in your home. You can download this printable in several … [Read More...]

I love our new house, since I have been living here … [Read More...]

Ideas for making your laundry room organized, functional, and attractive | 11 Magnolia Lane

The Laundry Rooms of 11 Magnolia Lane

Amy and I both firmly believe that you should ALWAYS decorate your laundry room (because don't we all spend a lot of time in there?!).  That being said, my laundry right now is in the basement (more like a dungeon!) of our little old MCC House, so there's no decor to show off--just spider webs!  But … [Read More...]
