Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was fabulous and you are all rested up to take on another week of training/working/life! My marathon is just 12 days away and I am so beyond excited. I wish the race was this weekend instead of next weekend! I’ll be running 8 miles today, 6 tomorrow, I have a bit of speed on Wednesday, Thursday is a rest day and on Saturday my long run will be somewhere between 9-12 miles!
Today I am sharing something that we’ve added to our house that we absolutely love! This post is sponsored by Mixtiles — a new app that makes it super easy and affordable to get photos from your phone onto your walls! I have a discount code at the end of the post for you.
On average I take around 100 pictures a day! Even before I started to blog I was snapping pictures constantly and scrapbooking them. The reason I started taking pictures of my food and daily post-run selfies was because of this blog… the amount of pictures I have on my phone of desserts and running shoes is probably a world record.
The majority of photos that I take each day are definitely of our family though. I think that our kids are going to really love having so many pictures from these years of their life so they can look back on many fun experiences together.
Now we have an easy way to take our favorite photos from my phone and get them up on our walls so we can enjoy them every day!
I absolutely love how easy it is to use Mixtiles. All you have to do is download the Mixtiles app and then go through your photo library and select which pictures you would like to turn into tiles and that’s it.
Within 5 days of ordering Mixtiles they are delivered right to your door. They also offer free shipping.
We were all super excited to see how they turned out! Well, Skye was ready for nap time but I am pretty sure she was excited deep down too.
The kids loved looking at each tile and talking about the memory from the picture (some of their memories were pretty accurate and some of them were way off, ha).
Remember how little they were when Andrew and I got married?
The photo quality of each Mixtile is absolutely amazing. I honestly wasn’t expecting them to be nearly as good as they are. They are clear, the color is excellent and each tile is so light even though they are so sturdy and look like they are much heavier.
One of the only photos I have with me in heels—> Running shoes, sneakers and flip flops for life:)
When you create your set there are different framing and layout options for you to choose from! Can we just go back to Hawaii right this second… this picture below is making me want to book a flight!
We loved the CLEAN option with these white frames. They are perfect for our house and our style.
To hang up the Mixtiles all you have to do is peel the sticky cover off the adhesive on the back of your Mixtile and then stick them directly onto the wall.
They go on SO easily (and quickly… not going to lie, I don’t have a lot of patience when it comes to hanging pictures so these are perfect) and each Mixtile stays put.
It took us just a few minutes to hang up our entire Mixtile set. The kids even helped with a few. Another thing I love about Mixtiles is that you can unstick and re-stick them very easily! The Mixtiles do not do any damage to your wall so if you want to rearrange them or put them in a different place in your home, it is so easy to do that. Your walls are safe with Mixtiles so you can put your hammer and nails away:)
Once you use Mixtiles you’ll never go back… They make hanging your pictures so easy and affordable. The finished product is absolutely gorgeous on any surface—> Textured walls, brick, wood and even glass. By the way, we’re not alone in loving Mixtiles—> They have over 6,000 5-star reviews on the app store.
So many great memories! I can’t wait to keep adding to our Mixtiles collage over the years on the wall.
Below pics: Camping, first day of school, family pictures, Skye thinking she is a big deal in her high chair, our anniversary, Skye’s first hike, Brooke and Knox just a few days after they first met (instant bffs), Skye happy to go swimming, twinning girls, Brooke and Knox looking adorable, 4th of July (my second favorite holiday), our family reunion to Kentucky, our engagement pics, Hawaii, Knox and Andrew out on a date, a sweet picture with my dad, Brooke’s race and the kids at our wedding!

Do you take pictures of your food? Do you take pictures of your running? Do you share your photos online very often?
Do you enjoy home decorating?
If you could choose to be at the start line of ANY race on the planet this weekend (let’s say every race was happening this weekend), which one would you choose?
