Celebrating an Exciting Moment!

Today I wanted to pop in real quick to share an exciting moment with you guys because our home was recently featured in the holiday edition of Flea Market Decor magazine!! It’s actually a seven page spread and an interview, which is pretty darn exciting for this small town girl. I wasn’t really planning on…

How We Got to Our Fixer Upper

It’s been exactly two years since we purchased our 1980’s fixer upper. I seriously can’t believe it’s already been two years, but somehow it has. So much has happened in that short amount of time–major house renovations, huge life changes, and a sweet new baby girl. Gosh, we’ve been through a lot and I can’t let this…

A Few Goals for 2017 + BIG news!

Ok guys, I can’t let the first few days of 2017 pass without talking to you about my goals and intentions for the new year. Cliche, right? I debated on whether or not to even share this post, but I want my blog to be a place where I not only talk about the things I love–like vintage…

Romantic Homes Magazine Feature + One Year

So this happened yesterday. That’s our house in the August issue of Romantic Homes Magazine! If I didn’t bruise like a peach I’d ask someone to pinch me, because this feels like a dream. I snapped this photo yesterday right after I bought the magazine. It was definitely one of the most surreal moments of…

  • 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
