My favorite and least favorite body parts

My favorite and least favorite body parts
Sadly, I don’t know one woman who is completely happy with all of her body parts.  I hear friends complain about everything from their skin to their thighs to their feet.  It’s funny though, when I look at them I see my loved ones’ beautiful eyes, hair and strong legs.  This made me think; what if...

Outdaughtered is the new Jon and Kate Plus 8
Did you used to watch Jon and Kate Plus 8? If yes, you need to see Outdaughtered on TLC. Many years ago when my kids were babies, I loved to watch the young “normal” parents as they navigated eight children.  I admired Kate’s organization and watched in awe as she constantly yelled at her husband....

My dream job is to name nail polish

My dream job is to name nail polish
I treated myself to a much-needed manicure and I picked out a fresh navy nail polish.  My manicurist commented that she really liked the color and the ladies around leaned in to see my hands and also praised it.

Friday Favorites: Wood Countertops, Lego Storage and Nutella French Toast
Happy Friday! This week and month both seem to be flying by.  With spring sort of in the air, I’m taking on some new home projects, wanting your opinion and sharing a few of my favorites.

How to create a gallery wall

How to create a gallery wall
I’ve been admiring photos of gallery walls and craving one in my own home. We got our house painted over the summer and I took down most of our framed photos and artwork and didn’t rehang most it.  I enjoyed the clean and minimal walls for a few months, but am ready for a change.... Read more »

This week included a flooded basement, end of the school year parties and packing for our annual summer vacation. I’m looking forward to the change of routine and hopefully some calm family time.  First I wanted to share ten things with you. 1. Bravo, Jon Stewart. There are no jokes to be made about the...

I Am Addicted to Virtual Garage Sales

I Am Addicted to Virtual Garage Sales
Did you know there are private neighborhood virtual garage sale groups on Facebook?  I joined, but did nothing for many months until this spring when I got that urge to clean, organize and get rid of all things immediately. I have sold a few boots, shoes, kids clothes and even given away a vase, books,... Read more »
