Me and my boys!

Welcome!  I am Kelly Nipper, wife to Jeremy and mommy to 6 year old Kamdon and 4 year old Kolton.  We are an active family living in Tampa, Florida who loves all things sports and outdoors.  When we are not working on our house, you will usually find us with our boys either fishing and cruising on our boat or at Disney World.

I work full time as a Senior Financial Analyst in healthcare.  Working full time and trying to do all the mommy things can be tough, but I refuse to let the fact that I am busy keep me from going all out when it comes to my kids and home.  I have found a lot of shortcuts along the way to make the most efficient use of my time, and when all else fails – fake it till you make it!

In 2017, we purchased a home on our dream lot on a cul-de-sac surrounded by conservation. The house was in need of a lot of love, a true fixer upper.  We gutted the house and I found a passion and love for design and home decor.  Maybe its the Financial Analyst in me, but I am frugal minded with expensive taste.  I research every purchase and find the best deals on high quality items.  I poured so much time, energy, heart and soul into making decisions and shopping for our new home that I just can’t keep it all to myself, so I started this blog.

I will be sharing our before and after pictures of the renovations that we did to our home along with all of the fun details.  We will have DIY projects, and decor ideas to share.  I will tell you where I got all of my furniture and fixtures and how I got the best price on them.  We love to entertain and host our friends, so you can expect details of all of our parties, including the kids parties.  As I come up with mommy tricks that make our busy family life easier, I will be sure to share those as well.
