DIY Christmas Banner For Under 5

Yes, that’s right. I started decorating last weekend. Started!…I haven’t finished yet. Mostly because Mark wanted to watch football, and I cannot bear decorating without blaring Christmas music throughout the house.

I was most excited about getting our mantel set up. So that, of course, is where I began.
Y’all know I’m always up for a good deal. I found a great one for you to recreate for your mantels!!! It’s super easy…thanks to a magical thing called gold glitter stickers. Here’s how I did it!I chose this scrapbook paper from Michaels because of the gold pattern…and mostly because there was a sale on scrapbook paper. But more on the price stuff later! ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are sooo many different paper options to choose from! A close 2nd to this one was a cute paper with Christmas trees in the background!! And 3rd was alternating between red and green paper…but I couldn’t part with my current gold obsession.

Instructions
1. Choose your cutout shape. I used triangles for our fall banner, so I chose this flag-like pattern for our Chrismas banner.
2. Trace the pattern onto the scrapbook paper keeping each flag as close together as possible.
3. Cut!
4. Use the beautiful, sparkly gold stickers to spell whichever phrase you choose! (But check on the back of the pack first to make sure there are enough letters for your creation! For instance, I used up all of the pack’s Rs for meRRy chRistmas!
5. Use tape to connect the paper with the yarn. Space evenly between the yarn, leaving extra room at the ends for hanging.
6. Hang that beauty! Merry, merry!!
Now onto the price deets…because we don’t want to spend over $5, do we?! ๐Ÿ™‚

– I got the scrapbook paper 6 pieces for $1 on sale at Michael’s. I only used 3 pieces! The regular price is .60 cents.
– The gold letters were $5.99 (eek!) BUT I used my 40% off 1 item coupon. This week they upped it to 50% one item! So go get those letters! I usually just google “Michaels coupon” on my phone at the store, and the cashier rings up the coupon straight from my phone. You can also find the 50% off coupon here.
– I already had the string from my fall banner, so there was no spending there!

Here is the grand total…as proven by the receipt! WOOHOO!
Make sure to share your pictures with me if you create a lovely Christmas banner yourself!! Can’t wait to see your creations, lovelies!!!

6 Things I Wish I Knew Before Marriage GIVEAWAY

Morning lovelies!! Today I am sooo happy to co-host this posty-post with Cassie from True Agape. I loooove her blog, her heart, and the way she and her hubs seek Jesus in their marriage!So…let’s get to chatting about things Cassie & I wish we’d known before we got married. I’ll tell you my 3, and then she’ll tell you hers. What comes after? A giveaway!! With the Gary Chapman book Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married plus some cutiepatootie festive bookmarks for your reading pleasure.
ONE : The purpose of marriage is to reflect God’s image. That’s right. Marriage was not made for me, nor was marriage made to be just for my spouse. Marriage should be about God. Our marriages should reflect His image, specifically the Trinity…3 persons in one. Just as God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit work together in perfect unity, we should strive to reflect that sort of union with our spouse.
The closer the husband and wife move toward the Lord, the closer they get to each other. I love this analogy!! Before we got married, I didn’t realize what a high calling marriage is: to reflect HIS image in everything…for His glory! Can I get a HALLELUJAH AMEN!?

TWO : Repaying an insult with a blessing is the hardest thing ever. In 1 Peter 3:9, Scripture instructs us to repay an insult with a blessing. Sounds lovely, right?! Well, it’s a lot easier said than done when you’re irritated and you live with the person who knows how to push your buttons better than anyone else!! If your spouse hurts your feelings, try to bless him instead of hurt his feelings too. When he is driving you crazy, seek a blessing. When you’re just in a bad mood and want to be grumpy, meditate on His will for you! This whole return-an-insult-with-a-blessing-thing is still so hard for me, but Scripture tells us we will inherit a blessing by doing so!

THREE : Purity DOES matter. [This is one of those…”eeeeek!-should-I-really-say-this?!” moments. But living boldly for Christ was one of my 2013 goals…so…doing it.] I used to think that by my husband and I not having sex till our wedding night…well, I thought I was basically doing everything right in the purity department. I waited until marriage! I did it all right! Right?!?! WRONG! Purity means a lot more than exclusively sexual intercourse. And it’s SO EASY to think, “Times have changed! The world is different now.” God didn’t create His word to be transient or fleeting. Listen: I love my husband so immeasurably. Even without having sex before marriage, I still have a hard time thinking about different ways I could have honored God more rather than falling for looking more like the world. This is a topic I am super passionate about because it is all to rare that women push each other toward purity these days. Regardless of where you are/where you’ve been in your walk with the Lord, I would love to answer any questions or talk more about this with you! Not because I did it perfectly, but because I didn’t do it perfectly!! Just shoot me an email!

Now back to Cassie, our wonderful co-host from True Agape!
Here is what she wishes she’d known before getting married…

FOUR : That we could be so similar and so different at the same time. Ryan and I clicked so well because we have the same core beliefs on many topics. After being married for just over two years now I realize that yes we are very similar in those aspects we also have areas that we are very different in. The way we work, organize and think often are very different.

FIVE : Sex is sometimes an act of service. There are times that sex is not necessarily on our mind, but it is on our spouses. We must learn to be servant lovers when it comes to intimacy.

SIX : That love is a verb. Often times love is considered a felling and that it is, but it is more than that. It is an action. We must choose to show love to our hubby every day. Be that with our words, actions or spending habits.

Along the journey of marriage, we are sure there will be even more things that make us think, “Why didn’t I know that beforehand?” So today we are giving away a copy of Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married by Gary Chapman (who is well known for The 5 Love Languages) along with 3 handmade bookmarks! Don’t want/need these for yourself?! They make for lovely, thoughtful holiday gifts!!
Now get your cutie booty on over to True Agape to take a look around and find out more about Cassie! She is a Christian wife who enjoys cooking and running and who blogs about marriage. Then…(of course!) enter our giveaway below. YAY!

Day 30 Big Count Your Blessings

Counting our blessings. Viewing our lives with a positive outlook. Trusting the Lord. I believe that ALL of us should be more intentional about doing these things every single day. Look at this promise in Scripture
Wednesday, October 30, 2013

day 30 – big: count your blessings

31 Days Index

Counting our blessings. Viewing our lives with a positive outlook. Trusting the Lord. I believe that ALL of us should be more intentional about doing these things every single day. Look at this promise in Scripture

This is one of my most favorite and treasured verses. The verse ends with “…according to the power at work within us.” The Lord living within us pushes our lives to the extreme. So extreme that it’s exceedingly abundantly more than we could ask or think!!! THAT IS AMAZING! Exceedingly abundantly. Wow.

Sometimes I feel like we don’t realize how exceedingly abundantly blessed our lives are already. A couple of weeks ago, Mark and I sat in our den, enjoyed a glass of wine paired with some John Mayer tunes, and we just talked about things that were going well for us. Even the little things. It was so humbling to think about how greatly God has blessed us — certainly beyond what we could have ever asked for or thoughtWhether you’re in a peak or a pit in life…cling to this verse. If you’re on a peak: PRAISE HIM! If you’re in a pit: PRAISE HIM EVEN STILL!…and trust and KNOW that through the power of the Holy Spirit, God can do EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY MORE than you could ever dream of.

Day 27 Big Stop Glorifying Busy

So here comes another unforeen post that absolutely must slip its way into this series after hearing a fabulous message at church today. The sermon spoke straight to my heart. It affirmed me AND called me out. Let me explain…Do you realize the culture we live in?!?! Everyone is so “busy.” But that’s not a good thing!!! When you’re too busy…other things get pushed to the side. And it’s usually the more important things, too. (Your husband? Your kids? Your health? Your friendships? Your sanity?!?)

“How was your weekend? Good! Went by too fast though. We were really busy.”
“Sorry I haven’t been able to see you…I’ve been really busy lately.”
“Yeah, work is keeping me really busy.”
“Ooops I forgot to call you back, I’ve been so busy!”

Is that true or WHAT?!

Now, honestly [for me], since this move from Charlotte to Wilmington, I have taken a big step AWAY from busy. Don’t get me wrong. I was one to those “busy” people in Charlotte. Even if I was filling my time with things that had “good intentions” behind them (teaching kindergarten, tutoring multiple students after school, attending more than one Bible study, etc.)…I knew that when we moved, I needed to make some BIG changes. Against busy. For my sake and my family’s.

I knew that God had a new sort of life and marriage that He wanted to create for us when we moved to Wilmington. I felt it in my soul! I got plucked from my hometown…my comfort zone…and now I’m back to the basics. Just me, my husband, our pup…and moving to a place where have 0 extra commitments. A fresh start.

I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying (and thriving in) this new season. I am serving my husband better. I’m giving myself more time for me. I am filling my mornings with things that give me energy and breathe life into my body, mind, and spirit. I am a cheerful keeper of our home.

So (obviously) this is the part of the message where I felt affirmed. To His glory!!

[Noooooow the convicting part.]

Our culture also loves this idea: If you’re not “busy” like everyone else, then you must be lazy.

Our pastor asked, “If you’re not busy, do you feel like you have to defend yourself to people who are busy?”

Oh. Rats. Yeah, that’s kiiiind of totally me.

Some people get it. They know why and support why our little Houston family has made this change where I am nannying instead of teaching and spending a lot more time at home. But (most?) people don’t get it. And…being honest here…I have felt the need to defend myself multiple times. Actually, not multiple times. MANY times. Why I…this young woman who is married with no kids and has a college degree…why I am not trying to make lots more money for our family and work a full-time job.

I realize that I am very blessed. Don’t get me wrong…we’re not “rakin’ it in” (in our oh-so-close minded American Dream standards…though we are “rakin’ it in” in comparison to world outside of our close-minded American eyes. That’s another soapbox though… ;)). But we are living within our means. With contentment, joy, and a whole lot more peace. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel a million times healthier for us. Again…glory to God!

So where do you find yourself? A busy person? A person who finds the need to defend why you’re not busy all the time? Somewhere in the middle?

Day 23 Big Time

Do you ever have those moments when you’re like? Oh. Wait, really?!? Of course. Thanks, God.
That would be me yesterday. For whatever reason, I kept switching around the date of this post about time. I’ve switched it 2-3 times I think…for no important reason…just because. And then God laid it aaaallllllll in my lap.
Yesterday at our new church home (yay!) I attended an awesome weekly event for women called Sisterhood. It’s fellowship, teaching, and (of course) coffee! And wouldn’t you guess what the teaching was on yesterday…?! TIME. Even more specifically, being intentional about your time.
It is my prayer that these words minister to you in some way. I take no credit for them! They are all a result of the beautiful teaching I heard yesterday as well as through the power of the Holy Spirit!! Everyone is so “busy.” Schedules. Routines. To do lists. People to see. Places to go. Emails to return. People to feed. A house to clean. Dishes in the sink. Workout, maybe? There aren’t enough hours in the day…right?!

But time is a constant. It’s fixed.
There will always be 60 seconds in 1 minute. 60 minutes in 1 hour. 24 hours in 1 day.
You can’t change time. No human can.

What can you do to be more intentional about your time? First, think about your priorities. Establish them. And, while you’re at it, go ahead and make God #1 and your family #2 (even more specifically within #2 spouse then kids). These are non-negotiables.

Practice keeping #1 and #2 as “first things first.” Always at the top. Always the priority. Before your to-do list. Before that “urgent” thing pops up. Because, you know what? (This is a new idea for me)…Priorities are a learned skill. (I was like…hold up. Wait? Really? Yep.) Again: priorities are a learned skill.

So if your mind is trained to believe wholeheartedly that #1 and #2 are most important ALWAYS…won’t it be easier for other things to fall into place behind your “first things first?” Because you know #1 and #2 aren’t getting bumped. That’s a skill I need to work on for sure!

Best of Cheers Y’all

Oh my goodness. It’s time to (finally!!!!) spill the beans. Yep, this is Best of Cheers Y’all because I’m about to say adios to this lovely little space and introduce you to a new one. Rebrand, redesign, refresh, renew…it felt right to change it up, especially with the start of a new year!

The truth is I’ve been itching for a change for a while now. Cheers Y’all began simply as a means to document life and keep in touch with our English family across the pond. I never dreamed that it would grow into a place that pushed me creatively, connected me with amazing women across the nation, and inspired me to own it and live authentically — all while living my dream by staying at home with my little girl! What was once a journal and hobby has turned into a “home” of sorts where I can be myself, create, inspire, and encourage. I love it here…but I know you’ll love the new space even more. The new name reflects what my blog has grown into and where it’s going. It’s less cutesy and more mature (at least I think so!). It epitomizes who I feel I’ve become as a blogger…where my niche is. Its design and format are more fluid and updated (and I’m jumping on the WordPress train…EEEEK again because I have so much to learn! #fillmeinonalltipsandtricks).

I’ll introduce you to the new domain early next week. I can’t believe it and can hardly wait to show you around, but first I wanted toast to this space and celebrate the best of the best from Cheers Y’all. Here are your favorite posts…the most popular ones in the history of my little corner of the Internet.

New Week Noteworthies

Hello, hello! I hope this post finds you well after a merry Christmas! I’ll share more about our Christmas soon, but for now I wanted to round up the latest steals and deals around in case some Christmas money is boring a hole in your pocket.

Clearance on clearance at Old Navy makes this oversize striped tee $7.78, and this graphic tee $4.78. I love it in both colors! “The secret to having it all is knowing you already do.” Use code JACKPOT at checkout for an extra 40% off clearance. Woop!
And while we’re talking Old Navy, y’all have been loving my fridge chukka boots as much as I have! They’re not on clearance, but you can use code ENJOY to make them 30% off. Bonus: Old Navy lets you combine promo codes. Yay! Hurry because they’re selling fast. Limited sizes left!
This deal doesn’t seem to be available online (I can’t add any to my cart–if that changes holler at me!), but it’s worth scouring the clearance rack at Target during your next trip. My mama and sister have these leisure tunics and they’re AMAZING. I borrow them frequently. They’re lightweight, oversize, and they’re like tissue tees, so they’re sheer and perfect for layering. The website say juniors, but they definitely fit true to size–no need to size up.
Y’all know this is the best time to buy Christmas for next year. Sure, it might seem silly at first thought…but not really when you can buy nearly everything for at least 50% offI can’t wait to wear my new workout leggings (here + here — both 50% off!) that Marky got me for Christmas. After a long weekend of indulgence, I’m dying to get back to working out tomorrow. Woof.
GUYS! Influence Conference is coming to CHARLOTTE in a one-day event this April. I need to buy my ticket!!! How amazing is this?!! I can’t wait! Let me know if you are going!ย Totally random, but I wish I had a space or need for these because you can get two of them for less than $100!!! Also, Julia has similar ones for the kitchen table in her house, and she’s my favorite character on Parenthood, soooo yeah.
Another random furniture find and complete steal: this ottoman.You can’t (ever!) go wrong with tufting, naillheads, and velvet. It also comes in green if you want to get funky with it…but the markdown isn’t as hefty as the other.
Throwing a NYE party and want a some fun (yet affordable) home accents that you can use year after year? Throw these pillow covers on some of your regular throws pillows for a bit! It’s hard to say no to when you look at the $25 $4.97 (!!!) deal. (Not to mention FREE SHIPPING!

These sequin table runners are also amazing and come in just about every shade of metallic. Perfect to adorn your NYE spread and for parties in general! How pretty would the blush color be at a bridal or girl baby shower?!!
Last thing! (Told you I can’t stop with sequins once I start.) Stock up on these sequin stockings for next year while they last! $4.99 in gold and silver with faux fur. These without the faux fur are also available in silver and gold for $6.97.

Okay…off to fold laundry and maybe start taking down Christmas decorations. Maybe. ๐Ÿ™‚ I probably should go to the grocery store first considering we have zero food (except Christmas leftovers). Hope you’re enjoying the final days of 2015!

Nancy’s Nursery

Four months into her life, Nancy finally has a nursery and, boy, was it worth the wait! It’s currently the only completed room in our house, and that’s because it’s my favorite. This room–by far–has the most thought, articulation, and love put into it. I created an inspiration board for her room earlier this year, and it wound up being pretty on point! The only “big” change I made was changing the room color from sea salt to pink. Since we have sea salt throughout our house in various other rooms, I’m so glad I listened to my mom and sister and went for pale pink.

The first time Mark walked into this room, he said, “Wow. It’s so white in here.” That, my friends, was music to my ears. Welcome to this bright, light space…Nancy’s nursery. In lieu of a changing table, I use this bed to change Nancy. The bed is a family heirloom and was also my bed as a little girl. My mama also used it as a “changing table” throughout the years. It’s the perfect height for the job One of my dearest, best friends, Lizzie, gifted Nancy this amazing abstract painting. She is an an incredible artist. Lizzie used 1 Peter 1:6-7 to inspire this painting. It is absolutely my favorite part of the nursery. This piece of art is special on so many levels, and I cannot wait to watch Nancy grow with it throughout her lifeI created this mini gallery wall by combning Design Love Fest’s Dress Your Tech images + PicMonkey for text + Dollar Tree frames spray painted gold. Simple and cost friendly! My favorite is the middle right. Nancy’s name means “grace,” so I love having its definition in her room.The nursery guard. Truth is she tried to photo bomb almost all of these pictures. Bless this protective big sister, Tina!

At the end of the day, Nancy’s nursery is filled with so much LOVE. When I rock Nancy at night before she goes to bed, looking at the big L-O-V-E over the bed reminds me of 1 Cor 13:13. Before I lie her sweet sleepy self in her crib each night, I say this verse aloud to her and tell her I love her. This is a special, sacred place in our house. I pray our family grows in love as we grow in this home!

Updated:

Oh Hi!

Sweet friends, thanks for all of the anni love yesterday. We didn’t do anything special or fancy this year, so it was just our style. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mark surprised me and came home from work early. (That was the best!) We had a cookout at my sister’s house. Oh! And we put up a swing my sister got for the little Pie. She looked so cute swinging!

Cheers to 3 yearsย (even though Nancy is not amused)!
ANYWAY! Did anyone spot me on Talk of the Trains the other day? Lauren is someone who I wish lived in Charlotte because I look up to her as a mama. She’s doing this fun series called “The Talking Mom,” and it’s still cool to me that I get to be a part of it because I am, in fact, a mama (pinch me!). Pop on over and take a look!
Side note:ย this if my favorite post Lauren has ever written. It resonated with me. I think of it often. It’s just a beautiful story, and I am so glad she wrote it down. (…and I so look forward to figuring out “Nancy’s song.”) ๐Ÿ™‚
Happy Wednesday, y’all! Thank you for being a part of this little space–this creative outlet–of mine. I just want you to know that I appreciate your love, support, kind words, and readership with all my heart! I hope you have a great day today!!

Painting our QC Home

After a morning meeting with my designer yesterday (aka my MAMA!), we nailed down paint colors for our Queen City home. It was quick decision time…before the 40% off sale ended at Sherwin Williams. We got it done, and boy was it exciting! At least to me. I stinkin’ love this kinda stuff! Hubby and I are planning to do most of the painting ourselves for the first time for the love of saving a few [thousand] bucks. Here goes nothin’!

I took the above picture straight from our meeting venue: our butts on the kitchen floor surrounded by 13905315 paint swatches. So fancy but so necessary because of the natural light. You’ll see some old favorites (Jogging Path and Sea Salt) and some newbies (the rest of them!).
In my humble opinion, the computer images of the colors only go so far in terms of mimicking reality. They’re all a lot lighter in real life. But just for imagination’s sake, here’s where each of these colors will go!

Sea Salt: Formal Living, Dining Room, Guest Bedroom
This is the second time I’ve used Sea Salt. It was in the guest bedroom (and almost Nancy’s nursery) in our Wilmington home. I believe it to be the perfect combination of gray, mint, and blue all rolled into one perfect neutral.

Jogging Path: Den, Sunroom, Guest Bathroom
Another old favorite, this is the third time I’ve used Jogging Path in our main living areas. It is hands down the perfect “greige” in my book. I’m really excited about using it in the guest bath. Why? It’s going to cover up pink tile! Did y’all know you can paint tile for a temporary quick fix instead of gutting the bathroom? Goodbye pink (on the walls and floor), hello Jogging Path! Thank. Goodness.

Pearly White: Foyer, Hallway, Master Bedroom, Brick Fireplace
I chose this color completely inspired by the walls of my sister’s new home (which are Benjamin Moore China White). I knew I wanted more “white space” in our next home, and this was our pick! Yay for white!!! (Even though the above image doesn’t make it look white at all. Oh well! Silly computers.)

White Dogwood: Nursery
Okay. Mom and Hope had to talk me into this one. If it weren’t for Mallory’s most recent One Room Challenge using this color, I probably would’ve kept my foot down with keeping Nancy’s nursery Sea Salt. So…light pink nursery…here we come! Eeeek! And confession: the fact that this paint color is called “white dogwood” totally helped. A) The word “white” is in the color, and B) Dogwood is the North Carolina state flower! So fitting for my tiny southern girl, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

Anonymous: All interior doors
I’ve used SW Urbane Bronze in the past (which I still love!), but mama talked me into changing it up and using Anonymous. She said it’s what she’ll choose in the future, so I’m just going for it. She’s a pro; I’m sure she’s right about this decison. (I still love you, Urbane Bronze!) Anonymous still makes for a dark door–and I love dark doors always–so I’m sure I’ll love it.

[Omitted: Kitchen, Mudroom/Laundry, Master Bath]
The kitchen is currently light gray, so we’re keeping it that way. Same for the mudroom/laundry. Our beautiful master bathroom has royal blue tile and light blue walls with silver glitter…we are just going to live with that special combo until we save up to gut the master bath. I’ll just pretend I’m a unicorn in a land of sparkles in the meantime. For the future, I’m daydreaming of light gray walls or a geometric wallpaper (maybe it would be better to not sand the glitter?) and lots of chrome hardware with whites/grays in all finishes.

If you read all of this, God bless you. I love interior design, so this post is thrilling to me while to others…it might be like watching paint dry. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Nonetheless, I am so excited to jump back into home decor posts and updates soon! Can’t wait, y’all!
