Tips for your perfect Military Ball Gown

Plus, 10 totally affordable options that wont break the bank!

Hey, hey guys! So I've got a little something to confess.  I walked around the streets of Portland barefoot.  Yes, I said barefoot yo'  It's sketchy and highly unsanitary, honestly.  To be fair it was my one big night out. The military ball. We can all get in our feelings about the military ball.  Some love them, some hate them. However, most of us dread them because it's like finding a prom dress in your 30's.

Ah, the military ball, I was like Cinderella, but with vodka, and brand new high heels. Because let's face it,  I  had a damn dress dilemma, that in turn caused a freakin' shoe crisis. Which left me making questionable choices in the streets.  So in all actuality, I'm more like her evil step sisters with fat ass feet that just couldn't take, one, more, drunken step...

Faux ship-lap wall on the cheap

So we all know how crazy the farmhouse trend is! I mean who isn't obsessed with the farmhouse style? I live in a track home and often wish for nothing more than 100 year old farm house siting on a beautiful plot of land... maybe some day, right?  A girl can dream can't she?

In the mean time, I love to pretend this little builder grade house is a little old farmhouse that oozes character.  What's a girl to do? Add a little ship-lap of course! I know our home isn't a forever home and often worry about resale and adding to many personal touches but I do it anyway. Why? I look at it this way, if someone comes in and falls in love with my kitchen then they probably will fall in love with the rest of my home as well. If not, well at least I love it while it's mine! Someone else will love it too.

Updated stair case: With Gel Stain

So here's the thing. Gel stain. Yep, I said it.  Now if your like me you've got a lot of feeling about this gel stain craze.  I'll get to mine in a minute...

When we first bought our house it was the first time in years we hadn't lived on a military installation. I had all these things I wanted to do and redo!  I was so appalled by the honey oak color I wanted to stain everything dark brown.  Seriously, isn't that what gel stain does? Makes things so dark people can't tell if it's paint or stain?
