It’s almost fall y’all…even though this heatwave feels like summer will never end! This Labor Day weekend was a great time to shop for fall home decor items! I even took a little “field trip” to Kirkland’s- a home decor store that I had never been to before. Checkout my fall family room tour video to see how I decorated my family room this year.
I enjoy having coffee or tea in the morning but, I also enjoy a nice cup of coffee at night after dinner! I usually drink decaf so I am able to go to sleep without a problem. On most mornings, I am rushing out of the house and I don’t have time to stop for coffee, so I decided to setup a DIY Coffee & Tea Station that is functional and saves money…bye, bye Starbucks, lol! Checkout my quick video to see how I put everything together.

I am not ready to let go of summer or my vacation yet, so it was great to find this flowery off the shoulder dress and this fabulous bamboo bag. This bamboo bag is perfect to carry all summer long and a great reminder that summer is still in full bloom! Continue reading →
I love flowers! I think it started when I got to be the flower girl in my uncle’s wedding when I was about 6 years old. My family says that I barely wanted to drop the rose petals from my basket. I guess I did not want to let them go!Continue reading →
So our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered, I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook!Continue reading →
