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 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 [...]

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 🙂 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

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!! [...]

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

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

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.

Christmas Cookies

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 [...]

Holiday Cards

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 [...]

Christmas Table Décor

Anyone else feel like Christmas is just sneaking up on us? How is December already halfway over?!?! I had all my decorations out the weekend of Thanksgiving, and somehow, I'm still not done decorating everything! Could it be because I keep redecorating areas I've already decorated? Hmm... I started thinking about what I wanted to [...]

Holiday Wood Sign

So many cute holiday signs out there this year. I saw so many different versions, I couldn't decide which one to buy. Finally, I saw one that I liked, it was on the Instagram account of a local boutique that I follow. The problem, the actual boutique is not very close to where I live [...]
