Nautical Inspired Hanging Basket Planters

Nautical Inspired Hanging Basket Planters

I’ve been wanting to grow some veggies in hanging baskets. I have quite a few coco baskets, but they dry out so fast, my crops will end up withering away in the heat we’ve been having. I decided to head to Walmart to pick up a few plastic hanging baskets. I’m looking to add moreContinue Reading

10 Baby Items We Really Didn’t Need

As first-time parents, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the latest and greatest products for baby. We all want nothing more than to streamline this thing called parenthood and we want our children to be the best that they can possibly be starting from the womb. There are lots of products with great intentions,Continue Reading

Baby Notes: 5 Weeks Pregoccupied

Written March 25, 2012 We are diligently planning to surprise the family in mid April. We would like to wait until our first visit with the OB before we shout to the rooftops. I am getting very anxious since I have to hold back pretty much everything going on with me. I am tired ALLContinue Reading

Garden Update: Happy Carrots, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Hazelnut, Onions, and Lettuce

So there are quite a few goodies in our little garden that are thriving and a few that are taking their sweet ol’ time. Check out the carrots.

It’s Okay To Be Sexy: A Yandy Swimwear & Bra Review + $50 Giveaway {5/31/12}

I collect swimsuits. I have two-piece bikinis, halters with boyshorts, and tankini’s with boy shorts. They all are for different occasions (when I’m out with the hubs, out as a family, or out with people who cover up). I’m trying to phase out the suits with lots of strings, they just make me nervous andContinue Reading

Painting The Living And Play Rooms

Painting The Living And Play Rooms

As you all can probably tell, I am really into DIY projects. There’s so many projects around the house I’ve been itching to tackle, painting being one of them. White walls are depressing and suck the life out of me, so I HAVE to paint walls to create happy zones. I had the opportunity toContinue Reading

Completing Our Energy Efficient Light Bulb Mission

Completing Our Energy Efficient Light Bulb Mission

We’ve been using CFL light bulbs in our home for at least five years. As a way to conserve energy and save money, it just made sense. CFL bulbs last 7-9 years (we haven’t had one go out yet) so they are worth the initial investment. With so many rooms to buy light bulbs for,Continue Reading

Loving My New Glasses

Loving My New Glasses

A little over two weeks ago, I asked you guys to help me choose new specs and while it was a hard choice, I’ve made a decision and placed my order. Between the blog, Facebook, and Twitter, Enrich Black and Jodi Brown received the most votes. Since I am a rebel, I went for theContinue Reading

National Learn to Swim Day (Saturday, May 19, 2012)

I didn’t learn how to swim until my Sophomore year in highschool and that is totally unacceptable. There could have been so many times throughout my life where I could have been in danger and not knowing how to swim could have led to me being overwhelmed by the waters. Learning how to swim isContinue Reading

One of the things that Greg and I hope to do whether this Spring/Summer or the next is go bike riding as a family. Watching this cute video is really making me want to do so even more. We bought Jayden a Schwinn tricycle for his 3rd birthday and I’m kicking myself just a little…Continue Reading

Adding Sweet & Marble Peppers To My “To Grow” List + A Sponsored Video

I am a tad bit infatuated with peppers, even more so with the idea of growing them myself. I only shop for green peppers since the pretty orange, yellow, and red ones are so expensive. Last Saturday, while at Target, I discovered the yummy little peppers in the photo to the left. They were onContinue Reading
