Recipe Roundup

I had planned to post this early this morning, wake up before the kiddo, make some coffee and sit down to post. Unfortunately, plans changed when our little guy came down with a nasty cold last night and he and I were up most of the night together ๐Ÿ™ I'm not sure he's ever been [...]

DIY Blanket Ladder

DIY Blanket Ladder

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. [...]

Miso Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Miso Roasted Sweet Potatoes

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 [...]

Carne Asada Tacos

Carne Asada Tacos

  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 [...]

Faux Greenery

Faux Greenery

When I first started getting into home dรฉcor 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 [...]

Fajita Steak Salad

Fajita Steak Salad

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 [...]

DIY Candle Holder

DIY Candle Holder

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 [...]

Whip Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

Whip Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I can't blame him though, those Easter bunny costumes are scary!! [...]

China Hutch Upcycle

China Hutch Upcycle

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, [...]

DIY Front Door Decor

DIY Front Door Decor

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 [...]

Chicken Burrito Bowls

Chicken Burrito Bowls

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 [...]

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

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.
