Good morning/afternoon everyone! On Monday, I shared a glimpse of our year in renovation, and said I would share some after pictures today. My little brother let me know I shouldn’t let people hanging for two days to see the after, so I apologize for those anxiously awaiting. lol For those that have been following along throughout (thank you!), you have already seen many after pictures as rooms are renovated. However, I do have some new pictures for you as well. :)
Thanks for following!

We have officially been living in our home one year as of this past weekend. So crazy how time flies when you are having fun. :) Not quite. I can’t say a renovation is fun, however, we would not have it any other way. Our home will truly feel like us when it is finished and that is a great feeling. We have a mental checklist in life, and this was one of the big ones to cross off our list. It is totally worth all the stress and craziness as it keeps unfolding into a finished product. Although it’s not complete, we are through the worst of it. Yes, we still have a master bathroom to get through as well as a long list of smaller things, but there is nothing like eating out of a cooler on the balcony when it is below 0. :)
Take a quick glimpse at what our renovation looked like this past year.
Thanks for following along! Some after pictures to come on Wednesday. :)

Happy Friday everyone! :) Today I am sharing five random finds that are on sale right now and all under $50. The holidays are coming up, and I think some of these would make perfect gifts.
1) Hidden Animals Teacups – How cute are these!!?? You can pick from an owl, fox, and bear. Still a little pricey at $18 each, reg. $24 but how fun having people over and then an animal appearing in their drink. :) 2) Plated Glass Gold Votives – These are hand-cut, gold plated glasses that are perfectly sized for tealights. Perfect above a mantel, on a dinner table or a coffee table to get your house gleaming for the holidays. On sale at $29.99 for a set of 4, reg. $58.00 3) Monogrammable Matchbox Sleeve – Store your matches in this sleek match box and you won’t have to hide your mismatched matches in the drawer anymore. Perfect little gift with a candle if you ask me. :) $19 reg $24.50 4) Set of 3 paz trees – metallic cone trees made of beaker glass will add a little sparkle to any decor. On sale for $34.95, reg $43.85 5) Wide Green Glass Bottle Vase – Pretty and Simple make this a standout piece. To top it off, it’s on sale for $9.99, reg $49!

One of my girlfriends needs help deciding between 3 different IKEA desks/tables for her home office. The best way to help her decide is by showing pictures of different ways the pieces can be used. All I did was search the desks on Pinterest, which anyone can do, but sometimes it can be overwhelming when you are in the midst of it so I did it for her. I am sharing with you readers in hopes that one of you wants to give your office area a face lift. :) IKEA desks/tables are multipurpose so even if you are not doing your office, you might find use for them elsewhere.
1) The trestle and tabletop desk – This option as a desk can be used in an array of ways and comes in many different options and colors that you can choose from at IKEA. The trestle and top are sold individually so you can mix it up and get a different top and bottom, you could skip the trestle and put two storage units under the tabletop, you could paint the table top a custom color, wallpaper it, get a piece of cut-glass to put on top, there are a lot of options with this desk.
2) The MICKE Desk from Ikea – $69.99 has a few great components – the hole in the right corner of the desk for your cords to go through, as well as two drawers for storage.
Here are more pictures using IKEA products in the office:
