Updating Your Home Office On a Budget

Update your Home Office with a few simple tips & tricks

I’m excited to finally share my office room reveal with you guys! There weren’t too many major changes in my office space that were done but I think the changes we made have been great updates to the space. I spend A LOT of time in this room so feeling comfortable and at peace while I am in here was important to me.

The first thing we did was give the space a fresh coat of paint. We went with Beach Glass by Benjamin Moore. I love this peaceful color. We also have our bedroom painted this same shade so our upstairs space feels cohesive.

The next thing we did was draw inspo from one of my favorite pieces in the room, the Oh Joy! Rug by Lorena Canals. This is one partnership that I am so excited about! We have a Lorena Canals rug in our living room and it’s by far my favorite rug in our house. I love that it is easily vacuumed or it can be thrown into the washing machine! The same holds true for the new line by Oh Joy! We went with the cloud design (called Happy Day) because I loved the neutral colors and fun design. I also felt this was a design I could move around if I ever want to put it in a different space in our home.

In addition to that we updated the window treatments, grabbed this new desk from Target, and just added some additional décor and items we already had to complete the space. I really feel like you can update any space by changing up the textures in the room. I also love just moving items from room to room to switch up the look of each room. I took a metal basket I wasn’t using, a tray, and my lamp and created a small end table next to the couch. One other thing that was very important was hanging my kids art that they make. I know they always feel very excited and proud to give it to me so displaying it something I always want to do. We have some framed in our playroom and I have some hanging in my space. I’m sure this isn’t for everyone but it makes me happy to see their creations everyday!

Updating your home office doesn't need to be expemsive! Sharing a few tips & tricks!

Why visiting LegoLand Florida is the Best with Toddlers

Why we loved visiting Leogland Florida with our Two Toddlers

*I received complimentary tickets to LegoLand Florida in exchange for my honest review.*

LEGOS! Who didn’t love Legos as a kid? I was SO into Legos and I knew the kids would be onboard for a theme park that was not only FULL of ALL things Lego but also has a water park! We loved adding this trip to Legoland to our Florida vacation. I can’t wait to share more photos below and some tips!

First, I’ll say that when you book your Legoland tickets if you plan to travel during the warmer Florida months, BOOK THE WATER PARK TICKETS! After spending a hot day at Disney, we were all ready for some relief. The Legoland water park offered us just that! We spent so much time in the lazy river and splashing in the smaller splash pads. We ventured over to the bigger splash area at one point but my kids were still a little too young for it. They did love the boat launch area, this allows you to build your own Lego boat and then launch it down a water canal.

I really think paying that extra for the combo water park tickets is SO worth it. We spent a few hours doing rides in the morning then headed to the water park. Once we finished with the water park we went and did more rides. Kellan & Marley both loved the carousel, which greets you almost immediately once entering Legoland. They also loved looking at the Lego buildings, it was so impressive!

Visiting Legoland Florida

I was surprised by how quickly the lines moved at Legoland, This was key for us with the kids because we spent a lot of our trip waiting around in the hot sun elsewhere. Less wait and less crowds was much needed for us all. I love how close Legoland is to both hotel options as well. You can read in this post why we loved the Legoland Beach Retreat.

A few things to note, there aren’t a ton (at least not that I saw) of food options. There are a few areas to grab a quick bite in the water park area but mostly just hot dogs or hamburgers. I’m extremely picky with food so I did find myself leaving a bit hungry, this was fine because I just went back and grabbed dinner at our hotel. I also made sure to pack a ton of snacks for myself and the kids which came in handy!

Also, Legoland is open from 10:00AM-7:00PM and the waterpark is open from 10:30AM-6:30PM. We found that some of the shops and restaurants in the park don’t open until 11AM or 12:00PM. This was plenty long enough for us and we actually ended up staying longer at this park than Disney.

All in all, we had the BEST time visiting Legoland and Florida! We can’t wait to go back.
