I Am a Mormon Monday

Monday, October 20, 2014

About me:
I am a thirty-something wife and mother of four little ones. I have degrees in Marketing and Finance from Texas Tech University. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors (as long as it's not in 100 degree heat), and blogging over at The Mrs. & The Momma about my personal style, my babies, and our crazy happenstances with a family of six.
What is hope and what do you hope for?
Hope to me is intertwined with faith, which is hoping for things unseen.  Hope is seeing the glass half full.  Hope keeps me going when part of me wants to be a pessimist.  I hope for all the dreams I have to come true...for my children to be righteous individuals, to be a blessing in others' lives, for my family to be healthy, and that my family and I can and will be blessed for keeping the commandments.   
I hope for an eternal family.

How do I live my faith?
I live my faith both in the home and at church. At home, I fulfill my responsibilities of teaching my children the ways of the Lord, and being a faithful wife and supporter to my husband. We say family prayers together each and every day. We read our scriptures as often as we can. We designate Monday nights as "Family Night," where my husband and I lead our family in learning more about the gospel of Jesus Christ....this involves singing, games, story-telling, scripture reading, and usually a yummy treat! At church I work with the children in primary.  I enjoy serving the children in this capacity and feel grateful for the opportunity to aid in bringing up our little ones in faith.

Thank you so much for having me Kimberly!!

Chairish Style Board Challenge: Vintage Rugs

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Last week I was contacted by Holly from Chairish, asking if I would be interested in creating a style board based on one of their vintage rugs from their latest collection online. I am so glad that I was introduced to Chairish. Their stuff is so unique and one  of a kind. Chairish is a fabulous, curator approved, online marketplace for vintage furniture. It’s a such a great way for designers to sell and purchase pre-owned pieces. After visiting and browsing through their website, I was excited to take on the challenge! 

The theme of this challenge was to create a style board around one of their colorful vintage rugs. It's actually kind of funny that Holly contacted me about rugs, because we just bought a really nice leather sectional a few days ago. My Husband Josh and I were just talking last night agreeing that we need a fun and color rug to add to our living room, so this challenge is perfect for me!

This is the rug I chose......

I am such a lover of all things vintage and shabby chic. I picked the rug above because I love mustard and grey together. With my style board, I chose colors and items that I thought would tie into the colors in the rug. I love mixing texture, style and different colors together. Here is what I came up with.....
