So, if you’ve tried to view some of my oily posts in the past week, you might have noticed something is different. You can’t read them! Without a password! This was temporarily necessary because of a little something called the effffff deeeeeee aaaaaaaa! I sound excited don’t I? Don’t mistake my exclamation marks as enthusiasm. […]
I know I know. Everyone says they have the best pumpkin bread recipe. But seriously, this recipe really is the BEST. Don’t stray, you’ll always come back for it (right Denissa?!) :) I actually posted this recipe 4 years ago (complete with crappy photos and all). But I have revamped it a little to give […]
It’s safe to say Fall is in the air around most parts of the U.S. now, right? If not let’s just pretend ok? Today I am sharing some of my favorite Fall scents with you all! There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh baked pumpkin bread or having your home filled with the aroma […]
So we escaped somewhere last week. If you follow me on Instagram you’d know, but if you don’t….that’s why it’s been quiet over here! I didn’t know whether or not I was going to write about this trip, but this place was so dang wonderful, it would be a crime if I didn’t tell you […]
Happy Friday friends! I’ve been meaning to write this post forever now because I’ve used these anchors and screws for several years, and they are definitely the best! Forget those crappy ones that come with whatever product you bought (especially curtain rods!) and use these instead. Trust me when I tell you that when you […]
This homeschooling thing is definitely a crazy new adventure. But it is pretty awesome I have to say. I didn’t know whether I would hate it and dread every day, but I actually ENJOY it. And so does Emma. That doesn’t mean each day has been lollipops and gumdrops, because they haven’t. Here is Emma […]
Do you want to be the coolest parent ever? Then continue reading. I struggle sometimes with coming up for fun crafts and activities to do with the kids. And if I do have a brilliant idea, then it always turns out we are missing a few of the supplies needed so we have to go […]

I’ve been using essential oils now for about 9 months. You all know I love them in more ways I can express. So I thought it would be fun to show you all my collection! I know I’m always curious about what people’s homes look like, so maybe you are curious what my oil collection […]
Happy Friday friends! Today’s post is an informative one, so don’t skip it. Especially if you are already a Young Living member, because I am going to tell you all about essential rewards, a/k/a “ER” and explain it in an easy fashion since it seems to be a bit confusing in the beginning. First of […]
My sweet, rambunctious Ellie turned 2 yesterday! Can you believe it?! I really loved doing 1 month updates up until she was 1 year old, so obviously I stopped when she turned 1 last July. So you don’t see much of her these days on the blog. I guess it’s time to have another baby. […]
On the return of my trip from the Young Living convention last week, it’s hard to put into words all of the things that happened while there. But one of the highlights was hearing John C. Maxwell speak at our last general session. If you ever need a kick in the pants, listen to John […]
Decorating walls. It can be bliss, or it can be torture deciding what to put where. Accent wall or no accent wall? Gallery wall or no gallery wall but large pictures instead? See, torture I tell you. Luckily though, a fabulous company called Walls Need Love has taken all of the questions that run in […]
Ahhhhhh! Can you believe it? Remember that post I wrote back in February about homeshooling? Well, we are officially on board! That post generated so many helpful comments and suggestions, that I knew what was tugging at my heartstrings was meant to be. I’m so thankful to have you all to discuss them with. :) […]
There’s just something about Alabama. We were on vacation last week and got back earlier this week. We had a wonderful time, like we always do. It’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and flat land of Houston, and see beautiful greenery and hills. Like, real hills. If we ever move, it’d […]
I’ve been so excited to share this delicious Sangria recipe with you all, and it’s perfect for summer!! And I have the regular version with alcohol, and a non-alcholic version to share so this will appeal to everyone. Plus, I added a special ingredient… Yummo! And yes, the secret special ingredient is the Orange essential […]
Woohoo it’s Friday!! And hopefully summer by now where you live! Today I am sharing something so incredibly beautiful and unique with you all and I know you will love it. I was able to order some goodies from the one and only MacKenzie-Childs, and now I’m just spoiled rotten. Hate me. Established in 1983 […]
Summer is here and I’m already dreaming. Dreaming of lots of land. I’ve been dreaming about it for several months actually. I am just sort of over the master-planned communities, the HOA fees, and living right on top of our neighbors. I liked this idea at some point, but that was about 6 years ago […]
Well last year’s garden was so fun to have, that my mom helped me again with this one. We kept everything mostly the same this year as far as veggies go, just used a different soil. I’m not too sure on this soil though, it was one our nursery highly recommended, but it’s not as […]
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a weekend full of parties but it was fun! We also had the chance to finally get on our back patio and clean it. And clean it the fun way! It was not looking pretty folks. I know many of you can relate to the sidewalk […]
So, I had every intention to show you all a decor post today. Had the topic all ready and everything. But then I started looking at pictures on my computer and realized that I haven’t shown off my girls lately, or my hubby. I really miss doing my monthly baby updates when I had Ellie! […]
Hey friends, just wanted to let you know we are making some new site changes around here, so if you try and visit and you get an error, know we are working on it and the page should be up and running very soon. My site has been down most of the day today (Tuesday), […]

We are big coffee drinkers here. Are you? My husband is a coffee connoisseur and loves a good cup of joe. I do too. I’m one of those “don’t talk to me in the morning before I had my coffee” type of people. I’m not monster-like or anything, but I do NEED it. :) So when […]
Hope you all had a happy Easter! I am pretty excited to show you all a little trick we did in Emma’s room with her makeover. All along I knew I wanted some pretty sconces on either side of her bed. So I bought some. I was in her room getting ready to hang them, […]
Hello friends! I am back today with the EASIEST recipe you could ask for. Not a food recipe, but a recipe for Homemade Linen Spray! I’m excited to participate in another fun blogging series Myra from My Blessed Life is hosting, called Detoxing Your Home, and if you are visiting from Courtney’s Sweets, welcome, I […]

I love a good bargain that’s not a secret. So when I started using LivingSocial for great deals, I was immediately hooked. LivingSocial is another daily deal site, and I love their interface and browsing is easy (done by metropolitan area). I like their coupon section too. I thought this looked like a fun deal too. And […]
I had good intentions to show you something new today. Really, I did. But you know what? I’m tired. I just recently finished TWO room makeovers in less than 2 months. That’s kind of unheard of coming from me because I sometimes move at snails pace. The first makeover was of course the bathroom that […]
Well this is kind of old school, but also kind of new school because of the equipment used, but stay with me here. As you all know, we have been working feverishly in my daughter’s bedroom trying to give her a makeover. We needed some art and I wanted something different, so that brilliant DecorMan […]
It’s one of those decisions every parent faces when their kids hit age 5 or 6. Which school will they attend? Do we send them to public school, pay for private school, or homeschool? And many people start thinking of these types of things much earlier, like when they are 3 and 4 years old. Especially if they know they want them to attend a private school because they need to get on “the list.” You know, that exclusive list that is ultimately going to cost a fortune for you each month.
It’s a tough decision. And one that we are facing here soon, like this Fall.
It’s funny because 10 years ago if you would have asked me if I would be a homeschooling mama I would have laughed in your face. Loudly.
Little did you all know I have been working on a bathroom makeover over here! I’ve had a lot of things going on actually. And on overload. But that’s a good thing right? Well anyway, I don’t think I’ve ever even shown you all this bathroom. It’s the powder bathroom (that is by the mudroom) that was still under the curse of builder beige.
Anyway, I am going to show you a sneak peek of the bathroom makeover now, and on Monday you will see this room in it’s entirety with plenty of before and afters and I’m so excited about it!
Here’s a peek of the new vanity, and you can enter the giveaway HERE.
