Playroom Ideas with Toy Emporium

Big news you guys. We're starting on the basement! yahoo! As I'm typing this we have just started framing. I know, I know! I can't wait to take you on our biggest DIY journey yet...the most important phase of any DIY is the planning. I am actually surprised at how quickly we came up with our plan! Probably because we have been thinking of how we wanted it to be ever since we saw the house floor plan 3+ years ago. Now that we've lived in the house for 2 years, we have an idea of what more we need from the basement. Like, a heckofalot more storage. So, what do you do when you're ready to take on a big project like this? Most people start calling in contractors to get bids. We are not willing to pay $$$$$ so we knew we'd have to tackle some things ourselves. I can't wait to share with you our planning and implementation journey!

Part one: Plans

I know it's kind of hard to visualize, but there it is. I'll be sharing the different design ideas and befores and afters as we go along. WARNING: DIY always takes longer than planned. I hope you're along for the long ride.

The playroom is probably the room I'm most excited for so all the toys get out of my face in the family room and I'm not tripping over blocks all day! My husband couldn't wait to plan a playhouse and once Eliza caught wind of the idea it's all she talks about. I love the idea of making the outside of the playhouse look just like this one at Hickman Interiors

Inside the house, I love the idea of a kitchen like at Busy Budgeting Mama. Good storage is essential! If everything has a place then it's more likely to be put in it's place.

And what toy is one of the hardest to keep organized? LEGOS! Those of you that have them know what I'm talking about. I have such a love/hate relationship. I love that they inspire imaginative play for hours. I hate that I find them in my toes even after vacuuming. I love that they refine motor skills and increase cognitive ability. I hate that I can't put them away without weeping and wailing about not messing up that particular little thing that they built. 
We are building a window seat and bookshelves that I think would be perfect to use like These Little Moments Photography

Shopping at Target is my favorite place for good quality toys and now it's even easier to buy the best of the best in the Toy Emporium available online.

As we are obsessed with LEGOS we hopped online and found a LEGO set Eliza had been eyeing:

A simple Cinderella Party

Eliza and I had a lot of fun celebrating the Sleeping Beauty DVD Diamond Edition release with a Princess event at Walmart last weekend. We picked out some fun princess gear to add to our growing collection as well as made a pretty lengthy Christmas wish list;)

You can find the limited edition Blu-Ray at Walmart by the movies. We also grabbed some fun Princess party supplies and had ourselves a simple Cinderella party.

For the theme I wanted to focus on pumpkins! Since it's close to Halloween it was a perfect time to scoop up some pumpkins and decorate them. We didn't just carve normal boring orange pumpkins though, we glammed them up with white paint and rhinestones!

  All you need is some Fabri-Tac and rhinestones.

The kids get to take their glamorous pumpkin home along with a wand, tiara, and bracelet--full princess regalia--in a Tiara Grab Bag. I made these with lunch bags, a doily, and a cardstock tiara you can print and cut out.

In between playing princess and decorating their pumpkins, the princesses dined on tiara sandwiches {I used this cookie cutter} and cookies and pumpkin carriage cupcakes and meringues. Food only fit for a ball at the castle.

Birthday Giveaway

Share to Pinterest
Yesterday was my actual day of birth. To celebrate I'm giving you some of my favorites. Lately that's clothes because I lost all this weight on Whole30 and now I'm fitting in all my smallest clothes. Yay.

First up is a cute tee from My Sister's Tee. I had the opportunity to meet Aly {the model on the right and one of THE sisters}. Not only is she adorable, but they have a great message: "At My Sister's Tee we believe that while we are all different we are also all the same. We are inspired. We are love. We are all sisters."
I love the Be the Good Tee. It's seriously so soft. I wear it immediately after it's washed and then try to make it last through more than one wearing before I have to wash it again. Now you can win one of your choice too!









 I pretty much live in my Agnes and Dora leggings.



See what I mean? They are perfect for running around town with the kids or out on the town;) I love that they even have matching ones for little girls so Eliza and I can match. Oh, and recognize that tee? It's like I can wear PJs and get away with it.

I recently realized that my vision was starting to get worse and worse in my right eye. I only noticed it when it was dark and I was driving or it was rainy or something...I decided I had to do something about it before I got in an accident or something. A quick 10 minute appt at Costco later and I had a prescription for glasses! I was super excited to see I could buy frames for super cheap online at Firmoo


Ordering was super easy and I can't believe the frames with the prescription was only $36.00! Now I wear them while I drive and at movies and it's so nice to be able to see. Since I had never ordered frames before I was very skeptical about the quality/function of buying glasses I didn't try on. Firmoo has easy steps that walk you through purchasing them. You can even upload a photo of yourself to see how they might fit on you before buying. They have tons of trendy options and as you can see it worked!

The last is a very special print of my favorite place, the Salt Lake Temple. If you don't know anything about me, I want you to know that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love Jesus. Temples are sacred special places for us as we get to feel close to our Savior and Redeemer. This print is available in my Etsy shop and I'm giving away one digital 8x10 print.
Enter now to win! Runs through Oct 18.
