Everything You Need This 4th of July

Everything you need this 4th of July to celebrate, cook, and look HOT! ||| Yellow Rose Life ||

Everything You Need This 4th of July:   4th of July and New Year’s Eve are my two favorite holidays. Maybe it’s the fireworks…. maybe it’s the fact you’re with family to just hang out and be together, no pressure of gifts, no pressure of massive amounts of decoration and allll day cooking. You throw something on the grill, grab a cold one, and just have fun.  Kids, adults, dogs, and all!  But, every holiday calls for fashion, novelties, food...

I Sold my House in 2 Weeks, You can too! || Yellow Rose Life ||

 How I Sold My House in 2 Weeks, and Got More than My Asking Price: When we found out we were having our third baby, we both knew it was time for more space. We called a local realtor in Cypress, TX and got the process started. BUT before the sign went out front, I prepared the house. Remember I did have 2 kids, and toys were everywhere.

Moving Tips: Stay Organized Between Homes

Stay Organized When Moving, Stay Organized Between Homes || Yellow Rose Life ||

Moving Tips: Stay Organized Between Homes: Before packing even started, I knew it was a big possibility that we would be between homes for a week or more. Background: We sold our house and were in a lease-back (you lease your house from the people who bought it) for only 30 days, and didn’t have a closing date on our new house yet. I don’t get stressed easily, but this could be the pinnacle of stress, being homeless with 2...

First Birthday Picture Display

First Birthday Picture Display || Baby's first year is so special. Display all those pictures at their first birthday in this unique way || Yellow Rose Life ||

 First Birthday Picture Display: That First year seems to fly by, although at times it crept by slowly in a sleep-deprived slumber. Both my first and second babies seemed to turn one before I could blink, and I’m sure my third will follow suit. Planing that first birthday party is always so fun for me, because I get out my crafting DIY hat! In this post I will talk about the picture display I made for my son’s 1st birthday....

The Fireplace Mantel

 The Fireplace Mantel: I really want to tell everyone I meet about my fireplace mantel.

In the Beginning

Starting the Blog: January 2017- This was harder than I thought! Everything thing I read was ‘just one Click’, ‘start a blog in 10 min’, ‘so easy anyone can do it’. Well… not for me. I consider myself pretty tech-savvy, no expert by any means, but no dummy either and it was not just Click, Click, Click… Boom you’re done. I’m on my second week of trying to find time between work days, naps, preschool drop off, laundry, and play...
