Guest Post: Kelley with The Grant Life

Here's Kelley, her blog The Grant Life is fantabulous! I fell in love with her when she posted about doodling on $10 knock off TOMS she got from Big Lots. She turned them from blah into nautical cuteness! Be sure to head over to her blog to find that post later!

Hi Raising Bean friends!  My name is Kelley and I write over at the Grant life.  I share all kinds of thrifty, crafty, foodie goodness.  Im also a momma to two blonde haired blue eyed babies.  I love diet Coke, How I Met Your Mother, and rainy days where I can snuggle with my babes all day.  

I love reading Mar's blog because she is so passionate.  She is such a great mom and she really inspires me to be a better parent.  This month my little family  and I are moving into a house!  Our very first house and I am so excited!  Ive been pinning like crazy and Im going to share my favorite pins with yall today!

Moving tips!  My favorite - Write the contents of the box on the box.  Duh.. right?!  I never would have thought of that!

My favorite tips here - pack a suitcase and live out of it like your on vacation and place red tape on essential boxes.  Bathroom, kitchen, bedding all get red tape.  

Hello super cute labels for all my boxes!  Since Im going to write the contents on each box I might as well make them cute!  Right?! 

Chandelier and whimsical tree, girls room.
My daughters room is going to be cute and whimsy and full of girly touches!  I cant wait to start painting and create a fun tree decal like this one.

And Im going to go over the top nautical for my son!  I have a crazy obsession with anchors and I am happy to pass that on to my little boy.  

Thats as far as my mind has traveled the past few days.  I havent even thought about the master bedroom, kitchen, living room or office.  Whoa.  I better get planning on those rooms too! 

Thanks Mar for having me over at your blog today!  If yall get a chance come stop by the Grant life and say hello!  Id love to 'meet' ya!
