Note: This is a sponsored post for The Home Depot Foundation. Every thought, opinion, and experience is 100% my own. Many of you know that my husband, Adam, is a veteran.

Behind the Scenes at Better Homes and Gardens

A few months ago I received an e-mail from Better Homes and Gardens asking if I wanted to join their new Live Better Network. I of course was like "heck yes!" (because BHG is amazing), and they were like, "great, are you available to fly to Iowa in August to tour the BHG headquarters?" And then I was bummed, because a flight to Iowa was totally not … [Read more...]



Uncommon Goods Giveaway

Let's talk about Christmas gift giving for a second. I know each family has different ways of handling Christmas gifts. Some buy for every person, some draw names, some just do a White Elephant (or Dirty Santa, or Yankee Swap, or a variety of other names.) We have done each of those ways. It used to be that we got a gift for each person, and … [Read more...]



Laundry Room Updates & a $500 Home Depot Giveaway

I do an insane amount of laundry. I have two potty training sons, so I could pretty much wash everything in the house on a daily basis. I wish I was kidding. The very fist project we did in our house (besides painting over all the pink) was to make our laundry room functional and enjoyable to be in. I using the term "enjoyable" loosely...cause, … [Read more...]

You Asked…

You asked, we answered! Here is the video Adam and I made last night answering all the questions ya'll asked a few weeks ago.  It's not quite as through as I would have liked, but evidently YouTube will only let you upload videos that are 10 minutes or less. I didn't want to make two videos, so I had to cut it down and this is what we ended up … [Read more...]



Goose Creek Candle Review and Giveaway

I've always felt that lighting a candle is something your allowed to do AFTER your house is sparkly clean and dinner is in the oven. I feel that you should probably be sporting presentable clothing and your kids have to be wearing pants before its okay to light a candle. Lighting a candle in the midst of chaos is a serious breach of protocol. It's … [Read more...]

When My Blog Grows Up
