EIU Proud

Eastern Illinois University means so much to my family, but it all started with my mother, Julie Nimmons. Not only is she an Eastern alumna, she continued to impact the campus through her leadership. She has served on the Lumpkin School of Business Advisory Board, named a Distinguished Alumna, served ten years on the Board of Trustees and served with one year as Chair, and was awarded an honorary doctorate. I'm so thankful for the example she continues to set for me and I am proud to call myself an Eastern Illinois University alumna. 


$100 At Home Gift Card Giveaway

Our favorite place to find items for our home is At Home. You could get lost in this store for hours with all of the amazing items for both indoor and outdoor. We have had numerous projects around our home to add our own personal touch and At Home has been a lifesaver. 

Our most recent project was to add a seating area to our stone patio in our backyard. We have a seating area on the upper level of our deck, but we needed another area to sit and enjoy time with friends as well as watch our boys play in the yard. Watch the video to see what we came home with!

I'm giving away a $100 gift card to At Home so you can add your own personal touches to a room of your choice.

What's Hot for Back to School: Presenting Looks from Nautica

I can't believe it, but it's time for school to start! Nautica is getting us all set and ready to go! Chase is going to look like he just stepped out of GQ while strolling into his first grade classroom. This button down paired with khakis is the perfect outfit (and each piece under $50!) to get the year started!
