Create a Great Gatsby Look for Under $60

This past weekend we attended a roaring twenties party and I’ll start out by saying, I’ve been waiting for this moment my whole life, old sport. ๐Ÿ™‚

But if you know anything about me, you know I hate spending a lot of money on anything.ย My grandmother used to take us to Goodwill for the half-off Saturdays when we were growing up. I would pretend I hated it, but secretly I totally loved every second. Jeremiah thinks itโ€™s hilarious to hear me rattle off how little I paid when friends compliment my outfits or items in our home, โ€œGoodwill girl, you know it. Five dollars!โ€ But this time, I consulted my two other favorite places to save money – Amazon and AliExpress.

My Surprise Proposal

I’m sure that if you’re here, you already know that I GOT ENGAGED THIS MONTH! It’s been a whirlwind of a month between this surpriseย engagement trip to Texas, Christmas and New Years I’m just now finally catching up from all of it. I wanted to document this, in its entirety, for my own future reference and to help my readers feel like they know me a little better! After all, if you’re here, I consider us friends! That’s one of my biggest reasons for blogging – I love making connections with readers/viewers alike! But enough about that, let’s get into the juicy stuff – how we met and how he asked. Did I mention it was a SURPRISE trip to Texas?! (heart explodes)

Our Whole Home Color Palette

I feel like it’s been a HOT minute since I’ve posted on here. Life gets crazy for us around the start of October and it doesnโ€™t stop until New Years Day! But Iโ€™m not complaining, this is my favorite time of year. Iโ€™ve been keeping pretty active on my Instagram, so make sure you are following over at @jncrothers to keep up-to-date with our current projects, trips and fun little lifestyle posts not featured here on the blog.

Speaking of Instagram,

I have had a TON of messages come through recently with requests for paint colors throughout our home. One sweet lady said that she had even searched through my entire blog trying to find them with no success. Oi! Huge miss on my part – I didnโ€™t even think to tag the paint colors when Iโ€™m sharing updates in spaces of our home! So, today Iโ€™m going to give you a tour of our whole home color palette and give some tips and tricks on how to implement a whole home color palette in your home.
