Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

Master Bedroom Budget Makeover

I’ve been working on redoing our master bedroom since before Camden was born.  I’ve posted a few posts hinting at it over the years.  I thought I should photograph and post it before we move in September.  I had frames on the wall for months before getting pictures in them, and a week later we […]

Southern Sweet Tea

Southern Sweet Tea

Sweet tea is something my parents didn’t make when I was growing up even though we lived in the south.  My dad’s parents were northern transplants, and they all drank unsweet tea.  The first time I had sweet tea I was at our neighbors house when I was about 12 years old, and it was […]

Peach, Basil & Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Peach, Basil & Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Summer is in full swing, and I got the bug to make a batch of summery food this week.  It all culminated into one productive morning with a lot of over ripe peaches that were left in our fridge when we had to unexpectedly make another trip to Florida two weeks ago for my grandmother’s funeral. […]

Easy Summer Rolls

Easy Summer Rolls

I never knew how easy summer rolls are to make.  I also wasn’t sure if I would like them since they are cold, so I was totally caught off guard by how much I looooved them!  My friend Gloria Lee taught us how to make these.  In our house, she is referred to by Arabella […]

DIY Raised Vegetable Garden

DIY Raised Vegetable Garden

Back in April, we made a raised bed out of our old box spring.  We started by ripping off the fabric from the frame. Arabella was digging for worms in the yard. Mission accomplished! John ripped off the top pieces to use for boarding up the sides. We left only the middle piece to divide […]

Vintage Travel & Safari Baby Boy Room

Now that Camden is almost 2 yrs old, I’m just getting to photographing his room.  There were a few unfinished projects that dragged on for the first year.  No, I didn’t have the nursery perfectly decorated before he arrived.  Gasp!  And he was two weeks late.  Just keeping it real, ladies! There are a couple […]

Weekly Recap – June 28, 2014

This week hasn’t been the most productive in our life.  I’m sure that will make a lot of you feel better about your own life.  We all have our ups and downs…and then there’s teething!  Camden is getting some more molars, and we are all hoping that the end is in sight.  My kids don’t […]

The Best Asparagus Recipe

The Best Asparagus Recipe

My husband use to be a really picky eater.  Since we’ve been married, he has learned to eat so many new things because he was willing to try them.  I realized it’s all about how you cook things.  The first time I made asparagus for him, I made it this way, but I wrapped it […]

Make Your Own Docking Station

Make Your Own Docking Station

Since this blog is all about creating a beautiful home and delicious food that fits into a small budget, I decided to share this little project with you.  We’ve been struggling at our house with keeping cords and devices in one area and organized.  Recently, John plugged all the charging cords behind this table.  It was […]

We are starting to get back to normal in our house again after recovering from our vacation.  I started a new theme with the kids this week that they are super excited about – pirates!  With summer weather coming in, I’ve been on a salad kick almost every day for lunch or dinner or both. […]
