Home Remodel Update - Long Overdue Carpet Project

Sunday, October 11, 2015

If we stay or if we go...
One thing was for certain...

That carpet.

Never mind the duct tape - we had some subfloor replaced, then patched er up until the carpet installers could come!

And various forms of carpet, from room to room.

The stairs were the WORST!
15 years of traffic....

The hubs convinced me we also needed to redo the 'shoe floor' - in the entry way - 

Thank GOD he did!

What a difference!
I can't wait to do the kitchen in this easy snaps together laminate flooring too!

Before and after of the entry way - YES! Another one of those...

The carpet has since been replaced...and looks one trillion times better!

Home Improvements never end, do they?
At least with us, we wait so very very long - that the before and afters are simply amazing! HA!

Back to School Shopping with Gordmans!

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Back to school is SUCH an exciting time, for both kids, AND their parents, 
am I right??

Actually, I love having the kiddos home and we love our Minnesota Summers...but getting back into a routine is really nice too...

Back to school means a lot of things to a lot of people - and one of those things that goes hand in hand is SHOPPING!
We don't rush out and do a lot of back to school shopping, except for getting the things off of the 'must have to start fourth grade' school supply type lists. 

A new outfit, a couple of tops or bottoms here and there...
The rest can wait...

It's fun to get new stuff a month into school, too, isn't it?

My newly minted 10 year old and I headed to one of our favs...
Gordmans is a place that everyone wins!

So very very much to pick from, even when we don't always have the same thing in mind!
Shopping can be a real chore, some days.

But affordable sports apparel for everyone?

It's so fun to watch her come into her own, choose her own things...

And the price tags at Gordmans make me feel so much better about this whole we almost have a teenager in the house thing!

 Stylish gym shoes, for when cute flip flops and sandals just won't do!

And accessories!

This little purse is so cute, you just may see me using it from time to time!
Or, at these prices, we could each get our own!

Gordmans has become a family favorite - so much to choose from and prices that allow us to choose entire outfits, complete with accessories, not just a piece here, a piece there!

Have you shopped Gordmans lately?
What was your great find?
