Win a CUTE Carhartt!


Every farmer has a Carhartt, right?

But they usually look like this:


Now, I have my own, but it’s CUTE!

Carhartt provided me with this “Women’s Sherpa Sweat Jacket” to review and I LOVE IT! 




It’s super soft, sweatshirt material, and I have worn it everywhere this fall.  In fact, my friends have posted 3 pictures of me in the jacket on Facebook recently:



On a hayride with my boys…


Adam’s friend Tanner’s birthday party…


I’ve worn it to work, Kindermusik, the turkey barns, and even church!  (Seriously, a Carhartt at church!)

Here are a couple more pictures of me wearing it, just to show you how adorable it is.  (Adorable Carhartt?  Never thought I’d say that!)



Now, the important part – to win a Carhartt of your own, visit to sign up for their giveaway.


Carhartt did provide me with this product to review but the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.  Honestly, when I was approached with this offer, I was SO EXCITED, and they did not disappoint!

I’ve come to terms with the fact that my living room will ALWAYS have at least one toy, stray sock, or sippy cup where it doesn’t belong. 

And that’s okay.

Here are a few more family rooms where it truly seems as though EVERY member of the family is welcome – grown-ups AND kids!


I love the storage along the wall in this room, and kid-friendly leather furniture.  From



This is not really a living room, but I love the colors used.  The flooring looks like carpet tiles, which are great for kids.



This is definitely a sophisticated space, but there are toys VISIBLE!  I love it!  From



See that basket of toys in the bottom right of the photo?  Plenty of floor space to play, and places to cuddle for movie night.



I love the mix of colors on the sofa, and the great family photo!  My boys would love driving tractors all over that tile floor.



The wall of storage is great, and the coffee table looks like it could double as a play table. From:



The use of color in this room would help camouflage any wayward toys that happened to be left around.



Do you have a family room that you love?  What elements make it work for your family?
