Top 5 Pins

I was scrolling through Pinterest and thought I'd share my Top 5 Pins for the last month. There are some goodies here :)

Number FIVE: DIY Oversized Growth Chart Ruler

This is one of my favorite DIY projects. It's functional, beautiful and easy to put together.

Number FOUR: Master Bath Reveal

This was the master bathroom in our last house, which we did in a short time frame and on a budget. Most of the elements were from Ikea, keeping us within budget. It was a small bathroom, but the changes we added made it feel way bigger!

Number THREE: Strawberries & Cream Doughnuts

These Strawberries & Cream Doughnuts are delicious, easy and baked, not fried! It's a winner!

This post has some adorable party printables! It reminds me of the Ice Cream Party we had for Sweet Pea, four years ago.

And the number ONE most pinned post last month was...How to: Get Fit

Food Blogger, Sara Wells of Our Best Bites, lost 50 pounds with diet and exercise. She put together a great post with lots of tips. Worth the read if you're needing some health & fitness motivation.

Come on over and pin with me!


A Stump Side Table

Hey friends! I'm sharing a unique and easy project today...a Stump Side Table. I fell in love with these when I read The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith. If you've followed her blog for any amount of time, you may have seen some of her stumps. She has a few different blog posts about them here, here and here.

West Elm also sells these beauts for $249 each.

The cost for mine, you ask? ZERO DOLLARS!


September 11th, 2001

Today is 9/11, the anniversary of a horrific attack on our country. I was in New York on that day and this is my story.



Camping Meal Plan

Since the end of summer is near, we're trying to squeeze in a camping trip. Planning meals is always a challenge, but I've found some recipes that work well for our family and are easy to put together.



The $5 Cabinet

I found this gem on Craigslist for FIVE BUCKS!

It was pretty gnarly. And very purple.


Fruit & Yogurt Pops

I hope you had a great 4th of July! I'm keeping the red, white and blue theme going and enjoying some patriotic Fruit & Yogurt Pops!

I shared my simple 4-ingredient popsicle recipe over at Skip to my Lou. Go check it out here!


Summer List 2015

School is out and summer is in full swing!

Our kiddos will now be heading into 4th grade...

By the end of the school year we are all ready for a more laid back schedule. But having a summer list helps us stay busy with fun stuff.

Here is this year's list:

This is our 7th year of making lists and the kids look forward to it every year. Here are some of the previous years' lists:


What's on your list this summer?
