Calvin’s Loft Refresh with Walmart Kids

This space has always been a very happy one with tons of natural lighting, windows, and the pitched ceiling but it hasn’t always been F U N C T I O N A L.  That is until we spruced it up with some adorable (and affordable) finds from the Walmart Kids Home section.  I knew Calvin needed a table for this space so he could color, build, and moon sand ‘til his heart’s content.  And I knew I wanted something modern while still being affordable because well, he’s a rowdy toddler so I’m sure it’ll take a lickin’…..

Calvin’s Birthday

How does the saying go…..”If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”  Well, it seems that on October 14, 2017 both God and Calvin had a good chuckle!  Hang tight on this newborn story gang, she’ll be personal, emotional, and a touch lengthy but  I’ll wrap it up with some of my favorite shots from the day.

The Closet Edit

If you’re an old school s + s’er then you probably remember when I used to organize and style closets as a fun side gig when I lived in Lex. I prided myself on being able to get a good purge and organizational system in place for my clients…and I LOVED the end result.  But what’s that saying, “Do as I say, and not as I do,” um yea, well that totally applies to my closets,  because while I know the peace of mind and just overall sense of happiness and productivity that comes from a well organized space..I can’t seem to encourage my own closet purge..that is until my friend/organizing guru, MILISSA FROM KEEP IT NEAT INDY, pays the Chappo Household a visit…..

The Nordstrom Sale–Tween Edition

Here in Indy, school is well underway for the gals . And while it looks a tad different from year’s past (we’re on a hybrid schedule), we still made sure to keep up our usual BTS traditions with a little BTS S A L E shopping at Nordstrom. Chase is now sporting many of the brands I love from Nordys, but Cam is still rocking some of her favorite tween threads (Treasure & Bond, Tucker & Tate to name a few) we’ve come to love from Nordstrom…and bonus, they’re all ON SALE…..

Keeping Cozy with Nordstrom

Who else can’t quit the cozies?? Blame it on the months of quarantining, but dangit, I’m still going strong with a healthy does of joggers and cozy cottons.

Case in point, these adorable Tie Dye Joggers.….I love them paired with this PERFECT WHITE TANK or even their SWEATSHIRT COUNTERPART……

Good Habits with Global Healing

Trust me when I say, there were Q U I T E a few less than stellar habits I picked up during quarantine (eh ehem chocolate filled croissants in bed nightly)…but life is all about balance, am I right?  And so with the naughty habits I implemented, I’m also happy to report I instilled some healthy ones too thanks to morning meditation, Sunday Self Care days, and Global Healing to name a few.  I’ve said it before, but I’m notoriously an inconsistent vitamin taker.  But mama is in her forties and so I don’t have the luxury of dilly dallying when it comes to optimizing my health from the inside out.  In search of a quality probiotic, I was first turned onto Global Healing when I started taking Floratrex……
