I don’t have a sumptuous story behind this DIY project – it was as simple as my pre-teen complaining that her candy bucket was too “childish” to use for Halloween this year. I looked at that goofy, pink, smiling pumpkin and saw at least five years worth of memories. That cheap little ‘ole candy bucket […]

Can you guys believe it’s the last week of September already? That means it’s officially Fall y’all! That also means the holidays are right around the corner. Seriously, they’ll be here before you know it! I want to get started early on my holiday gifting so I thought I’d try some homemade infused vodkas! This […]

Fall is FINALLY here, officially! With the first day of fall now under our belts, we can move into full fall festival mode. I pretty much love everything about this time of year – hot apple cider, changing leaves, fires, camping, and sooo much more! I could not let this go by without some official […]

I am a huge fan of old, weathered, distressed wood furniture and with my husband’s permission (thank goodness!) I am slowly redecorating our home, room by room. Think a primitive country style, if you will. If you watch Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines… they are my idols. ANNND I heard that Joanna is […]

With the coming of the holiday trifecta, it is time to buckle down on getting some new and fun things to put up in the house. It is wayyyy to easy to run out and buy cute decorations to put up. But every now and then, it is nice to make something that can be […]

Starbucks announced that their pumpkin spice latte was back in season so I knew it was safe to start expecting the pumpkin-everything-else to begin making its way out, too. Hey, I’m not against it.

Alright, alright!! Pumpkin spice is in the air… and fall is around the corner!! My summer flowers are dying and there’s scarecrows and cinnamon stick wreaths in stores everywhere – telltale signs that we are entering the beautiful autumn season. 🍂 🍁 🍃 Summer was a blast but I am finally ready to embrace the cooler months ahead. Plus, […]

It’s finally September!! You know what that means? The countdown to Halloween is ON. No matter how prepared I think I am during the year, Halloween is always the holiday that seems to sneak up on. Well, not this year folks! I’ve started prepping NOW so I’ll be extra ready next month. I’ve put together […]

My boys love pretending to be their favorite super heroes, and I enjoy letting them play. However, some of these items can be really expensive! Boys are rough on their toys, and therefore I hesitate at times to buy certain things, knowing that it will only last a short while. So I put my mom […]

I have a middle schooler this year <gasp!> and it’s a whole new ball game, let me tell you. We went to orientation night a few weeks before school started and I came home with a headache – I can only imagine the stress on the kids themselves. New territory. New rules. Multiple classes and […]
