On Hitting The Life-Change Lotto

Trust in him

I have guilt, y’all. I made the big announcement that I would become a full time blogger in 2015, but here it is nearly a month into the year and I’ve served you guys nothing but three measly posts, accompanied by lots of tumbleweeds and crickets. I apologize that it’s been such a ghost town on this blog, but let me explain WHY I’ve been so quiet lately.  I have some really good reasons, and this week I'm spilling all my secrets. As one of my good friends said... 2015 is the year I hit the … [Read more...]

Share the Love: Free Minecraft valentine Printable at C.R.A.F.T

free-minecraft-valentine-2.jpg

Hey guys! Today I’m sharing these free printable Minecraft Valentines over at C.R.A.F.T.  (I like to call them “Valenmines”)  Garrett called my mom his “best Minecraft buddy” so the first Valentine’s goes out to her. They build all sorts of worlds on their iPads together when he visits her.  It won’t be long before she gets the hang of the XBox controller and we don’t see them again for the rest of the year. If your kid or mom loves Minecraft as much as mine do, be sure to head over to … [Read more...]

Toasted Peanut Butter Marshmallows

Toasted-peanut-butter-marshmallows-on-Ritz_thumb.jpg

When I was a kid we used to have all-night Canasta marathons at my grandparent’s river cabin.  My mom or aunt would make huge batches of these peanut butter crackers for all of us to snack on while we stayed up all night and played cards.  A healthy family, we were not. Fun?  Absolutely.  Healthy? Nope. This past New Years Eve was spent in a warm cabin in freezing cold Asheville, North Carolina with Garrett.  We let him watch one of the Star Wars movies for the first time, and I made us a … [Read more...]

Where I Work: My Home Office Space

Home-Office-Decorating-Ideas-3_thumb.jpg

As I kick off the first week of the new year in my new job (aka a blogalicious full-time bloggedy blogger and Young Living essential oil salesman extraordinaire) I’m trying to get my affairs in order so I can think straight and get down to business here at home. All the Christmas decorations have finally come down, and even though my hardwoods are covered in a thin layer of glitter, things are feeling better already around here. What is it about taking down Christmas décor that makes you feel … [Read more...]

Best of 2014: Top 10 posts of the Year

Top 10 posts of 2014

As we come to close of 2014 I’m looking back on how my blog has morphed and changed over the years. For the past few years I’ve considered myself to be a DIY & design blogger.  But as I was searching through my analytics to find my top ten most viewed posts of 2014, I was surprised to see that most of them were not DIY related at all. I believe I have officially crossed over into “lifestyle” blog territory.  Fine by me, because it’s WAY easier to document how to toss together some bath salts … [Read more...]
