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 […]

How to Make Ice Cream at Home!


Please know that I don’t take this lightly when I say I have a recipe for one of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! When I was young I loved watching 7th Heaven. I know every single word to their theme song, 7th heaven. One of the things that imprinted on me […]


The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie!


I have always loved to bake. Cookies, brownies and banana bread are always on my baking rotation. In the Fall I do love to bake an apple crumb pie, but have never ventured into other fruit. Peach season has been upon us and I have been so many of them! Asher loves all sorts of […]

Effortless Peach Cobbler

Typically I’m a tea drinker, but a couple of years ago I tried a caramel macchiato at Starbucks and I was smitten. I still love tea and drink a cup most days, but lately this tired momma has also been having a coffee as well! Well, I wasn’t exactly making the coffee myself. I was […]

chocolate chip meringue cookies

For the past couple of years I have hosted a cookie exchange during the holiday season. I’m always in it to win it, which means I end up baking a lot of trial runs of cookies before picking out what I’m going to bake for the cookie exchange. This year I went in with a […]

A couple of weeks ago I saw a posting in a facebook group that I’m a part of and the buzz was all about 2 ingredient dough, which if you are on Weight Watchers it’s very points friendly! I kept seeing it pop up but as a true bagel lover and I wasn’t 100 percent […]

the best holiday cookie

In my day I have been know to go on many bakery hops. What is a bakery hop? Well, it’s pretty similar to a bar hop where people go out on the town and check out different bars. Except instead of bars I drag people around to try out different bakeries and have been known […]

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

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.
