Hey there! I’m Sarah and I’m tickled pink to have you here visiting my blog. I’m a wife and mama, living in a 1980’s fixer upper with my husband and three sweet chickadees. I started this blog in December 2015 to share my budget-friendly DIY projects and the journey of renovating our home. When I first stared out I named the blog Little Vintage Nest. And while I loved the name, after a few years it started to feel impersonal and too narrow. So in late October 2018, I started the daunting process to rebrand the blog from Little Vintage Nest to simply my name, Sarah Joy Blog which is what you see today. You can read more about that transition here.

I love sarcasm, copious amounts of coffee, and Target runs. But family is everything to me. And there’s truly no place I’d rather be than at home and cozy with my people. Everyday I’m so grateful to God for giving me these blessings and lots of undeserved grace on an hourly basis.

Thank you so much for being here! I truly appreciate each and every one of you that drops by to read my blog and follow my shenanigans. You. Are. Awesome.

  • This is what our Friday night is looking like—cozied up & watching the Grinch in our PJs 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Happy weekend guys, only 11 more sleeps til Christmas!!
  • You know you’re an adult when you get really excited about new recliners 🙌🏻🙌🏻 We did a little switcheroo in our living room & so far we are loving these new chairs. They were a total bargain too, which is my favorite part. I’ll definitely keep you all updated on how these do for us, but so far I’m really impressed. PS: I can’t help but think of that episode of Friends—the one with Joey’s recliner, Rosita. Anyone remember that episode?! Its one of my faves 🤣🤣linking the chairs here & in my stories: http://liketk.it/2yNyV #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • I’m talking all about gift wrapping on the blog today!! 🎅🎅 I came up with three super easy & cute ideas that will give your gifts a little more pizzazz this year. BUT I also have to tell you guys that I’m actually really terrible at wrapping gifts. I usually make my husband do it because I’m the worst! He makes fun of me every single year. 🙈🤣 But I gave it my best effort on these three & they’re fun if you’re looking to do a little something extra this year. Check it out at sarahjoyblog.com—the link is in my profile. Happy Wednesday guys!! 🎄🎄
  • So you all know I’m not a big fan of ironing (aka I never do it! 🤣) #sponsored I’m always in a hurry & most of the time I use my hair straightener to iron out the edges of my shirt. It’s awful, but true. Sorry mom! But now I feel like a real adult because I have the @conair Turbo ExtremeSteam Handheld Fabric Steamer. It’s a total lifesaver & it gets rid of those pesky wrinkles in just a few minutes. Now we are wrinkle-free & just in time for the holidays! Better yet - Conair is giving away TWO steamers to help turn your Holiday party prep up a notch. 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Giveaway CLOSED. Congrats to @thehowtoguru and @kerrie_at_cowgirldiary for winning this giveaway 🎉

  • TWO WEEKS til Christmas 😳😳 I don’t know if I should be excited or freaked out because there’s still SO much left to do! Shopping, holiday baking, Santa visiting, sleigh riding, moving watching, etc. We have lots of fun things to do in these next two week & I’m ready. Or at least ready-ish! It’s gooooooooo time guys! 🎄🎅
  • It was realllllly tough to pull myself out of our cozy bed this morning. Anyone else? It’s definitely a Monday & I definitely need more coffee 😴☕️ In other news I shared our cozy holiday bedroom on the blog today, but I’ll tell you now that my favorite part of the entire room is our new duvet cover. You guys, it’s from @walmart & I loooooooove it. Head to the blog to check out my post & see more photos—I’m also linking everything here: http://liketk.it/2yJZA
