  I've been doing a deep clean to get our little house ready for all of the family and friends who will join us for our son's high school graduation this weekend, and one thing I've noticed is that I've got blue and white everywhere (not that that's a bad thing!). If you're … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by HomeRight.  All opinions are my own.   Mother's Day is just a few days away, and it's warm and sunny out--where I am, at least.  That means it's time to blow the pollen off the grill cover and start cooking outside! Today I'm sharing a super, super easy recipe that is … [Read more...]

Today is Amy's birthday, so of course I gave her the day off from blogging.  That being said, since it's May and we're at the bitter end of the school year (and they're building a new house!), I'm sure she's keeping herself busy on her "day off." Her present is going to be late...I texted her … [Read more...]

Because it's Friday and we've all survived another week, I thought I'd post my most recent favorite cocktail.  Mind you, this is so simple that there's pretty much to need to call this a "recipe," but sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!

Today I'm showing off my daughter, Annabelle's room, in our little Mint Chocolate Chip (MCC) House.  It's my favorite bedroom right now because it's pretty much "finished." Have you ever noticed that bedrooms seem to get decorated last on the list?  I'm sure it's because they're not public spaces, … [Read more...]

It's been so wild around here lately that I've barely had time to clean my house, much less do any fun projects.  In fact, I take that back--I haven't had time to clean my house. Life has been oh-so-busy with all the "lasts" of my son's senior year of high school and all of the piles of paperwork … [Read more...]

As best I can tell, we're at the tail end of pollen season here in North Carolina, which means it's time to pressure wash all the outdoor furniture and get ready to enjoy the outdoors again. In honor of the sunny days and iced tea that will soon be enjoyed on the porch, I thought I'd share a … [Read more...]

Happy Friday, friends!  I'm finishing up a hair-on-fire kind of week with a quick trip out to Kansas to see my husband and wish him a very happy birthday.  They are calling for frigid cold and precipitation, so maybe I'll stop complaining about the pollen here in North Carolina, because it could … [Read more...]

If you visited my home tour a few weeks ago (see it here), then you saw a few shots of my kitchen.  It's definitely compact, which makes it hard to photograph, but it's been nicely updated with new cabinets and granite countertops.
