I bought these little hanging buckets from Michaels last year. I had this vision of them hanging on a ladder...not sure why...probably saw it on Pinterest 🙂 where 99% of my ridiculous ideas come from. I've wanted to update my blanket ladder, which was big and bulky, to something a little less so. [...]
Quick and easy weekday breakfast prep, comin' at ya! I've been making a dozen of these yummy little cups every couple weeks because I can have it done in about 25 minutes and *presto* breakfast for most of the week for hubby and I. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me [...]
Wow! It has been a minute since I posted anything on the blog!! I think May was my last post. I really can't believe it's been that long because the time has flown by over here. This was an intentional break. Back in May, hubby and I decided to get in touch with our realtor [...]
There was a point last week that I ate Mexican food 3 days in a row...not mad about it, even a little bit. Day 3 happened to be these Carne Asada Tacos. And let me tell you...if there had been leftovers, I would've had them the next day and made it 4 days in [...]
A fresh & light take on the Greek Chicken Gyro and a quick and easy weeknight meal!
I love the look of vintage books used in home décor and wanted to play around with the look as well. When I couldn't find what I wanted, I made my own!
My first try at reupholstering and it's easier than you think!
When I first started getting into home décor I would buy real plants and new flowers every week. While I love the smell of some fresh flowers in my home, I realized I was spending A LOT of money on flowers every week. On top of that, I don't have a green thumb (we've talked [...]
Hawaii is 2 weeks away!! AND it's our first trip without Landon. I have never been away from him overnight. At first, as the trip got closer and closer I was having SO much anxiety about leaving him. Mostly just because I'm such a control freak and he and I are with each other ALL [...]
Here comes another one of those DIY's that is a result of me not being able to find exactly what I want in a store 🙂 Turned candle holders are hard to find, and tall turned candle holders, even harder. These little cuties are SO easy to make, I think I had them put together [...]
We attempted to take Landon for photos with the Easter Bunny today. It wasn't very successful. Landon was terrified! Like, whites of his eyes, fists clenched around his dad's arms, high pitched scream, terrified. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with that bunny 🙂 I can't blame him though, those Easter bunny costumes are scary!! [...]
He is 16 months old, and I'm already hiding vegetables to get my toddler to eat them. Is that bad? 🙂 A lot of things I read about feeding toddlers said to give them a few foods at each meal and make sure that at least one of those foods is something they like. Well, [...]
What is it about having kids that makes you want to celebrate ALL the holidays? Am I alone in this? I have never ever been a fan of Halloween or Valentine's Day, but I was ALL about a Halloween costume for the little guy a few months back and today I found myself wondering if [...]
I didn't actually realize how long this project had been in the works until I sat down to write about it. For those who follow me on Instagram, you might remember the stories I posted about this hutch. I found it last year in May and HAD to have it. The problem, it is HUGE, [...]
Anyone else feel just a little bit relieved when you're husband's favorite football team isn't playing in the Superbowl? Don't get me wrong, I always hope for the Seahawks to win every week and make it to the big game but the couple of times they have made it, my husband has literally been a [...]
I picked up these faux fern sprays from Michaels in the fall and haven't used them until now. They are pretty large and bushy and I was struggling to find a bucket, basket or pot that they looked natural in, nothing was really working until I came across this hanging olive bucket at The Urban [...]
I went to Trader Joe's for the first time EVER not too long ago. I know, I know...I live under a rock or something. #1 I was SHOCKED at how low my total was at checkout. Especially since I got what was on my list as well as about 10 different recommendations from people on [...]
I've been wanting to try chocolate zucchini bread for a while now. I had it in my head that there's no way it could taste like a dessert with zucchini in it. Not that I have anything against zucchini. I love zucchini!! But...when I want chocolate, I want chocolate. You know what I mean?? So not the case here! For one thing, you can't even tell that there is zucchini in here, let alone 1 1/2 cups! And, it comes out of the oven all warm and melty thanks to some chocolate chips mixed into the batter.
Merry Christmas weekend friends!!! Who is still scrambling last minute to get things done? Me, always. I wanted to post a quick tutorial on my Christmas cookies because I'm pretty impressed with how they turned out, especially for a first timer on the frosting piping bag! Real talk...I DID NOT make these from scratch. I [...]
Let's be clear...I am by NO MEANS a johnny-on-the-spot, efficiently organized, if-you're-on-time-you're-late person...AT ALL! I mean, Christmas is 7 days away and I did the bulk of my gift shopping online last night. I'm a last minute, rushing around like a chicken with my head cut off, study 1 hour before a test kind of [...]
