[Music] [Music] hey guys welcome back to my channel today I’m going to be sharing a fall decorate and clean with me I am so excited to share this with you guys I have been kind of struggling this year to get in the fall mood and I’m finally there and I am just getting so excited to start welcoming at the fall weather it’s not quite arrived yet but in her house is totally fall so the first thing that I wanted to do was just start by cleaning out my kitchen I’m going to be cleaning the entire main living area of the house and then also taking down all of our summer decorations and then we will go ahead and start getting into decorating for fall [Music] in the past I’m feeling it tonight riding on the dizzying [Music] so normally it’s one of the boys chores to unload the dishwasher every morning but in the last few weeks we have started school and so we’re just kind of starting to get back into routines and water routines really make life a lot easier we are just kind of in that adjustment phase right now so the boys didn’t end up having enough time to unload the dishwasher this morning before they headed off to school so that’s why I am just doing that here [Music] going back no going back there’s no coming back to you [Music] I’m feeling it tonight riding on the dizzying [Music] [Applause] [Music] back no going back there’s no going back to your [Music] I’m feeling it riding on the disease [Music] [Music] [Music] I need to be happy too thanks to the dust when I’d love just to mess up and tell the truth all I hear is a college in the words of seeds [Music] [Music] cuz I can’t [Music] once all the dishes were done I just needed to put some new fresh flowers in her vase Kyle actually picked these out and I was super excited because he didn’t pick out any crazy colors or anything he just picked out some way because he knew I was going to be decorating for fall and so he thought these would go well with everything which I thought was super sweet you guys know that I usually always go for carnations but he just decided to switch things up this time and get a different kind I’m not even sure exactly what type of flowers these are but I think they are so gorgeous and just the white goes with everything so I love them right now [Music] guys get skies [Music] it’s time making next I just wanted to take a moment and redo our menu board I actually had not redone it since I did our lunch video if you have not seen the back-to-school kids lunch video I will link that up above for you guys but I just wanted to take a few minutes really quick and read out the rest of our meals for this week it’s been kind of an adjustment phase for me trying to figure out what exactly I can eat because as a lot of you know I got diagnosed with Hashimoto’s recently and I have to eat dairy free gluten free and sugar free I’m also not eating soy and not eating corn items so there are tons of things that I can still eat but it’s definitely changed of our meal plan a little bit next I just wanted to take a minute and show you guys how I seal our granite countertops I mentioned this in a previous video I can’t remember exactly which one it was but I had mentioned that I usually seal our granite countertops every 6 to 12 months and a lot of you guys were curious oh you had never heard of what that was you didn’t know you could do that yourself and I will link down below the item that I use I just get it from Walmart but it’s pretty inexpensive and we just do this every 6 to 12 months ourselves and it makes such a big difference I feel like it really helps protect your countertops make them last a lot longer and look a lot nicer as well so as you can see the first thing I’m doing is just clearing everything off of our countertops and then I’m also just going to wipe everything down with the multi-surface cleaner I’m of course using my all-time favorite the apple cider mrs. Meyer scent this is finally in storage right now and grove also has it I do have a link down in the description box if you are interested in getting some of the fall since this year that link is going to give you tons of free goodies so be sure to check that out and then once a year countertops all cleaned off I will explain exactly how I go about sealing our countertop look it’s my car there’s no no with your head let me go my side let me go outside [Music] so I am just using this granite countertop sealer as I had mentioned I will link this down in the description box for you guys and all you do is just liberally spray your countertops make sure you get a really good coat on there and then you just let it sit for about five minutes and if you notice that it’s seeping in right away go ahead and spray another coat on it and then after five minutes you will just go back through with a dry cloth and just kind of rub any excess away and that is all there is to it so I usually do this about every six to twelve months or once I notice our countertops are not beating like when you get water on them they don’t bead and that is just kind of my first sign that I’m like oh yeah I got to go ahead and get these sealed again [Music] you came for your special yeah you’re special everything about you is so beautiful I [Music] there is no [Music] [Music] [Music] without you there is [Music] we [Music] I feel like during this summer when we don’t have as many routines we end up kind of eating on the go more or we eat at the countertop a lot more often and sometimes even in the living room and I think that because we have not been eating at the table as regularly as we usually do during the school year it’s definitely become a catch-all so I’m really hoping that with the school year starting and getting back into our teens that will become more of a thing again where we just eat our meals at the table because I really do think that time is really nice as a family and it definitely helps when I know that we are going to be eating there I don’t just let that place become a catch-all for us [Music] [Music] moving into the living room it really wasn’t too messy I’ve found that during the day the house definitely doesn’t get as messy when we don’t have all three boys here we have Liam in part-time kindergarten that’s just how they do it here in Utah or at least in the school that we are at and then Luke is at school full-time and then Noah is just at home with me so as you can see I finally got an ottoman and I asked over on Instagram what you guys thought about this I feel like when I bought it I was going to go ahead and just paint the legs white a lot of you guys said leave it the color it is and a lot of you said paint it white so I would love to hear your feedback on what you guys think [Music] as I was dusting everything off I just started taking down items that I knew I was not going to be using for fall there were a few pieces of decor that kind of could go for any time during the year and so I wasn’t exactly sure if I was going to use some of them so I kept a few things up and then you’ll see you later on I took down probably most everything but I figured while I was there I would just take down anything that was for sure summary that I wasn’t going to be leaving it for fall [Applause] okay so I picked up the boys from school fixed my crazy mains or postpartum hair what everyone colleagues and I actually picked up a little bit of fruit because as you saw our fruit ball it was completely wiped out looking pretty there but we have our rug and an ottoman even though I have to do some things with them I think I also does this look different I rearranged in here so I moved the couch the couch was right here and it made this walkway kind of small so I put this couch over in the corner and then I took the bookshelf that was over here and I laid it on its side here is what it looks like when you walk in I am going to have to kind of like change this wall around because this was based off having the couch here like a sitting area but I love it when it’s not piled up with stuff it’s so cozy to sit in here I have like a little printer back there my desk and stuff is still the same you know still a mess in here right now what do you guys think yes no not sure about it yet let me know your thoughts you definitely to change up this wall either way [Music] how we do it but the truth is a so face the breaking point and I don’t care if I go down with it the way I see it there’s no point just in the end it’s all about [Music] Tony knows [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] once everything was totally clean I just needed to do the floors and so I am just going to be taking my vacuum throughout the entire floor and as you guys can see we did get a new rug I ended up going with the ruggable rugs a lot of you guys had recommended them to me and I have to say so far I really like them they are definitely a lot different there’s actually like a Velcro pad on the bottom that kind of holds the rug down but otherwise the rug is so thin which it has to be so that you can actually wash it in your washing machine but it’s really different and I’m not totally used to it yet but we do really like it so far I also wanted to remind you guys if you have not entered to win the dyson vacuum or a few other big prizes I’m letting you guys choose I do have a giveaway going on it still has another week and a half I believe so I will link that video up above so that’s the video that you can enter to win that Dyson vacuum make sure you are entered I made it super easy to enter and it’s just my way of giving back to you guys because I recently passed my two years on YouTube and I am just so thankful for all of you [Music] your hope it really seems cuz I don’t [Music] [Music] [Music] can’t stay long I don’t wanna waste no time feel it come it’s outside never felt like this in my life I’ve waited I mean it awakened my spirit you got me thinking I don’t know [Music] we are [Music] finally once everything was clean it was time to pull out all our fall to core and get it looking like fall in here [Music] [Music] so see tips that I wanted to share and that I’ve probably shared in the past with you guys is when you’re decorating your kitchen you really don’t have to do a lot if you have a windowsill in your kitchen you can set a few little festive items in there always adding a dish towel is super easy very inexpensive and it really makes a nice little statement in your kitchen and another one that I always do every single season is I change out the wreaths that I have on our pantry door I know a lot of people don’t put wreaths on their pantry doors but I’ve done this for the last few years and I really really love the lids [Music] Queens [Music] baby [Music] [Music] so much better [Music] – box [Music] little believe it creep your shoe shop you don’t have to hide it baby into the living room and onto our fireplace mantel this is always my favorite place to decorate in our house I got this big sign from Hobby Lobby I am not really sure what to call these but these little flower hanging things we’re so cute I found them from Amazon they were $20 I believe for a pack of two and there’s something that I think you can keep up all year round you can just change the flowers if you want or you can leave them as they are but they kind of go with all the different seasons and I love how affordable they were and I really love how pretty they are in kind of unique [Music] [Music] and I know I never measure anything but because I wanted these ones to be perfect and I think that I’m going to end up leaving them up most all of the year at least I really wanted to make sure that I measured them correctly so I was measuring here even though I pretty much don’t ever measure anything [Music] sweetie you know life’s too short so let’s not waste another minute [Music] beautiful sound [Music] [Music] you gotta tell me what’s on your mind wait little while you gotta take a deep I can make you smile when I let you into my bed my skin where will it end if I let it be keys it’s true go tree you know life’s too short so let’s not wait to let me in it [Music] when I was decorating I actually felt like I was going way more minimal than I ended up being but I still really liked it last year I ended up adding in like a lot of little leaves and a lot of pics and just a lot of extras that honestly made it kind of hard to dust everything and keep it clean so this year I just kept some big items out and a few small groupings but I didn’t do a bunch of extras and I really really love how it turned out [Music] can take another [Music] it’s alright but I don’t know if I can take another go-round [Music] I do have some new pillow covers that should be here later this week these are just some of the pillows that came with a couch for me got it and also some that I had already set out from summer I’m not really sure that they go with a new couch so much or with the new rug so I’m definitely going to be changing those out but for now this is what we had so this is what we’ll do but I really do love ordering pillow covers from Amazon that way you don’t have to store a bunch of extra pillows and they’re also washable [Music] moving into my office if you saw my fall shop with me when I went into bake Lots they had a lot of these really really pretty fall florals and I feel like it could get a little bit too girly for the entire house and honestly I’m not sure if it’s like 100% fall but I do love it a lot and so I wanted to incorporate some of these into my office because that is kind of my space not everyone comes and just hangs out in the office all day but I am in here a lot and so I thought this would be the perfect place to kind of incorporate some of these new items [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] you won’t grow up and I’m getting tired [Music] [Music] [Music] so this is how everything turned out I hope you guys enjoyed watching I hope this gave you a ton of cleaning motivation to get your home looking amazing and feeling nice and peaceful and I also hope it gave you some inspiration and ideas to start decorating for the season it is not fall outside yet we are still having some 90-degree days but the temperature is definitely starting to drop and I feel like once the kids go back to school I’m just ready for fall it’s no longer summer so it’s time to just start filling the coziness of fall fall is definitely my favorite season and one that I love decorating for so anytime I can bring those feelings into our home I feel like it just makes me so happy I hope you guys have an amazing day do not forget to check out those giveaways I will link them down in the description box for you guys make sure you go check them out and get entered because there’s still time I hope you guys have an amazing day and I will see you in my next one bye guys [Music] I think I’m crazy [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] you

  2. Have you thought of painting the Ottoman to match your fireplace? Your couch legs already seem to match your entertainment centre so that's easy ๐Ÿ˜‰
    For your office couch, I would center it under the window if you can. I like symmetry though so that's always what I look for!

  3. Don't like the couch in the corner like that. It looks kind of like an afterthought. They say you shouldn't put your monitor in front of a window because of the glare; why not put your couch under the window, your desk on the opposite wall, and move your bookshelf to the wall opposite the door? Oh, and since you asked about the ottoman, too, because your credenza is white, I think the ottoman should be painted white (the wood, that is!).

  4. I just got those same sconces from amazon!! I never thought to change the flowers for seasons, and youโ€™re brilliant!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿค—

  5. Hi Amanda,
    So beautiful! Simple elegance. Yes, Warm thoughts I send your way Raquel ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

  6. Paint ottoman legs white so itโ€™ll match. Youโ€™re an awesome mom and keep your home so nice. Yes, do a cleaning video with husband. Love your beautiful home. Most of the bloggers donโ€™t have formal dining rooms. Fall decor is lovely.

  7. I was watching this video in the morning while getting ready for today. My boys came back to school and itโ€™s quite hard come back to the routine. Hopefully by the end of next week ๐Ÿ˜…

  8. Great video as always!! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ
    I would paint the ottoman .. because it stands out and everything else looks perfect!!!

  9. The legs on the couch match the end table. The seats on your bar chairs are dark. So I think if the end table, couch legs and bar seats are dark the autumn legs would look good the same color. You could even paint them white then give it a distressed look dry brushing the dark color and a touch of gray. I think it would bring in some of the gray thatโ€™s around the mantle, bar sides and couch. Btw I really like the couch, rug and ottoman!
    I like your office like this!!! The couch at this angle makes it look more inviting. I know some people do no like any infront of a window. I have always had a couch in front of the window until recently. My daughters cars and my dogs would get on the back side to lookout the window or take a nap. They never have realized they are not human.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ They are quite spoiled!!๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Since I remarried May daughter has her cats with her and I have my dogs with me.
    I really like how you style things, you home always is so nice and inviting.

  10. Ur livingroom couch does the cover come off for washing…couch hunting any one with tips?! Help i hate my couch lol. Love ur home and channel!

  11. Everything looks so beautiful! The fireplace mantel is my fav! I love the hanging jars with flowers! Also I think the ottoman would look best with white legs!

  12. Everything looks great! I'm so wanting to decorate for fall! I haven't been able to yet but plan to next week. ๐Ÿ

  13. You should definitely paint both the couch legs and ottoman legs white! It would match so well with the rest of the interior.

  14. What about switching the desk and the couch? That way everything is โ€œgroupedโ€ grouped together!:)๐Ÿ’•Sending you positive energy from South Florida!:)

  15. i think i'd like to see the couch more centered under the window. That being said, its your house! Whatever makes you comfortable!

  16. Thank you for showing how you seal your counters!! I'm so going to buy this tomorrow and doing mine! I'm pretty sure I was one of those people asking how you keep your granite looking so nice haha.

  17. Let me tell you. The real life floors literally lifted a burden off me! I always feel like my house looks dirty even tho it's spotless because of little knicks and scratches on floors and cupboards. I'm glad to know your house has that too and still looks gorgeous!

  18. Iโ€™ve had Hashimotoโ€™s my whole life, have seen upwards of 10 endocrinologists, and Iโ€™ve never heard that you need to eat dairy/gluten/sugar free because of it… I havenโ€™t seen any of your videos where you discuss this, but Iโ€™m curious where you heard this?

  19. I would definitely paint the legs of the ottoman white.. I love the pops of white you have around your house and that would be another pop of white that would bring out the grey colors nicely ๐Ÿ‘Œ very pretty!

  20. I would put the computer desk where the cabinet is and put the cabinet in front of the window; then center the couch in front of the window where it is now?

  21. Keep the ottoman the way it is. Make it easy on yourself. Everything does not hafta be matchy-matchy. Porch video would be nice to see. I enjoy watching ur vids! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

  22. I would paint the ottoman. With all the gray it would stand out more, A fall house and porch tour would be awesome. You have amazing taste. You Rock Girl!!!!!!

  23. oh my! love u so much, Hilla from Israel, love ur home and ur so motivated! in ur office love the position of the couch, take it a bit far away from the left wall and put a floor plant there, it will air up the corner. love u, love watching u, keep on going ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. I wish I could start decorating for fall here but unfortunately I canโ€™t since I will be moving soon itโ€™s a big bummer for me since I love fall ๐Ÿ‚ as much as I love Christmas๐ŸŽ„ wa.. wa..

  25. I know I am late to the party, but I started college again, but the ottoman looks great just how it is!! Makes the living room cozy looking! Also when I decorate and I don't know if it's your style, but I like to put potpourri in cheese clothes or some colored fabric and tie it with burlap, or however you like for the fall. It makes a cute decoration and smells really good too! Also love the decorations!

  26. Your home is so beautiful!! Love your decor! Motivates me to clean and decorate my home for fall! ๐Ÿ˜Šโค

  27. Hi, Amanda. Love the decor. I would leave the ottoman as is. Where did you get the Rae Dunn style letters for the letter board?

  28. Your getting me in the autumn mood!! I'm starting my cleaning and decorating!! Mine wont ever look as nice as yours. But itll be festive lol

  29. Heyy! New subby here. Just finished watching this video and let's just say amazing!! I love home decor videos and clean with me videos, hence how I stumble across yours, glad I did!! Also I have a Kindergartener and 3rd grader this school year as well, and I am also a mom of 3 boys!!! I'm Nika from New Orleans and it's great to become part of the family!

  30. I'm totally vibibg to your music, and loving/feeling a little jelly over your super cute office nook!
    I really love the wood look of the ottoman and sofa legs but ….bc of your decor i feel it would really tie in even more so and pop as well if they were painted white.
    Side note….you could totally make that absolutely adorable wooden cake wirk with a touch of a mini pumpkin or the leaf string lights at dollar tree or something….?

  31. Love your video, as always! ๐Ÿ’™ I personally would paint the ottoman, because as much as I like it, I think it stands out too much because it doesn't match any other forniture… As for the couch legs, leave them as they are, because they match both the couch side table (I don't know how to call it, sorry!) and the dark top of the tv stand!

  32. Having to binge watch your videos cause Iโ€™ve been working overtime at work and just havenโ€™t had time.

    Iโ€™ve said it before but I love your style so much. You would make a brilliant interior designer.

    You should definitely leave the ottoman as it is. Itโ€™s a very nice contrast to the rest of room and rounds off the rug beautifully โค๏ธ

  33. Paint the Legs white for sure and distress them, I think it would tie all of your other main furniture accents together perfectly. ๐Ÿ’•

  34. Hello my name is Deb . I am a newbie. I enjoined the decorating very subtitle and complimenting of the existing decor .

  35. My suggestion on the office space, first is that a window behind the couch? If it is center the couch on that wall, then I would swap the desk with the shelving unit, shelving unit being longer then the desk you give you more room as you enter. The pictures you have on the wall are ok I would add more photos of family.

  36. Your videos are prime for me!!! Have you ever thought about doing a deep clean video, like windows, baseboards etc.? I really need that motivation!! Lol. Just a thought ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคž

  37. I always love your fruit basket! And your table is just gorgeous! I plan on making one like it when we get into a bigger home! I cannot wait to decorate for fall!
