Alexa, I Love My Amazon Echo Show 5

    I bought two Echo 8’s during Prime Day last fall. My mom also has a hard time using FaceTime and this was a game a changer for us! It’s so easy for older adults to use. I keep mine in the kitchen like you do and I’m always using it. I loved it so much that I bought two more during Black Friday for my kids. They make a great alarm clock, speaker for music and they can watch Netflix, Prime, Hulu or most any other streaming service we subscribe to. I also love the drop in feature. I can check in (they love that!🤣) or just let them know it’s time to get ready for dinner. Now I’m kicking myself for not buying one for our room!

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
