When I was young, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I am blessed to live that dream every single day along with my husband Steve, our four children, one son-in-law and two precious pups.

    Perhaps my favorite thing to write about. Mothering is my vocation. A dream come true.

Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Autumn Activities: Pinterest Vs. Me

Apple Picking according to Pinterest...

And the way I roll.

What social media suggests I wear...

What I actually do wear.

What I think I should be drinking this fall...

And what I actually am.

And you know what?
I am blissfully happy!
You do You this autumn sweet friends.
With no apologies.


  1. Not many places around here to pick apples like that even though they look so pretty in that basket. I have to get them at the supermarket too. Inspiration vs reality :)

  2. I like your version of everything better anyway! Pinterest stresses me out!

  3. Yes pinterest is a killer. I like the sweats.

  4. Love this friend. The extent of "fall" decor in our home currently is two floral arrangements (had my neighborhood ladies for Bunco last week), two tiny white pumpkins and a pumpkin pillow

  5. This is so true, Billie Jo!!! I always wonder how long it took some people to stage some of the things I see on Pin*erest!

  6. That made me smile...I prefer your reality.

  7. This made me giggle, I "DO ME" too:) Have a blessed and beautiful day dear friend, HUGS!

  8. Love the way you roll. Trying to live up to Pinterest standards is too exhausting and abnormal I think. I am happy and unapologetic with your version of apples and coffee too. xx Susan

  9. What a delightful post. Your coffee looks soooo good. I am sipping on my coffee right now visiting splendid blogs. ; )
