Evie Ivy Crafts Sign Giveaway


I've attended SNAP in Salt Lake City two years in a row now and this past year at Queen Bee Market I found a new vendor that I eyed even as we walked in. Her shop was adorable and she made gorgeous handmade signs with great motivational and cute sayings on them. Once that Market opened I bee-lined straight to her knowing that other ladies would be snatching up the signs quickly...and that's where I met Jenny of Evie Ivy Crafts. Her signs are RIDIC! If you saw me on Instagram in April, you may have seen it then...Just when I think she can't out do herself any more, I check back into her shop and see yet another sign I adore. When I was … [Read more...]

Tips on Installing New Bathroom Hardware

ryobi saw

When I was at SNAP last April I had the chance to meet TWO awesome new vendors that inevitably helped really transform my Nautical Bathroom. Moen and Ryobi Tools were both vendors present that I got to meet and chat with for a while and I knew I had to contact them when we got into the heat of our makeover. I'm SO happy I did too. Today I'm going to share how we used Moen and Ryobi products to make over our bathroom and share some simple tips on installing new bathroom hardware.First off, I got this great new hardware for my bathroom all in brushed nickel and part of the Ashville Collection. The cool thing about this collection too is … [Read more...]

Nautical Bathroom Makeover

nautical bathroom makeover from the cards we drew

This post has been months in the making...we started planning this bathroom in June and finally in August we've finished it! Our Nautical Bathroom for our son is complete and we are all in love and sighing a sigh of relief.When we moved into our house, we had these plain, vanilla bathrooms in each room. We have 2 1/2 bathes total and to date we have one and a half finished now. Here's our 1/2 bath makeover from a few months ago. Our master bath, the best of all, is last on the list. Our bathrooms lacked character and were outfitted with builders grade cabinets, lights, and fixtures. While the cabinets remain the same, we hit the whole … [Read more...]

Hickory BBQ Beef Meal Kit from Kraft

#kraftrecipemakers BBQ Beef Sandwiches for dinner

For dinner tonight, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®  I used this easy Hickory BBQ Meal Kit from Kraft Recipe Makers! My husband is from the south, so we're always in the mood for BBQ and smoked meat. He always teases me that he can't eat chicken and he's a beef kinda guy, but there are times that I really have a hard time finding quick and easy meals during the week that don't take hours to prepare. Sure, good BBQ is amazing, but it usually takes quite a while on the grill and set up and clean up are a pain. I recently found that Kraft now offers these great meal kits that are perfect for working moms like … [Read more...]

Enjoy Healthier Chips-Green Giant Vegetable Snack Chips!

Green Giant Veggie Chips Key Visual 1

I'm one of those people who LOVES chips, but really feels guilty about eating them. We buy tortilla chips regularly in our house and I justify those because I eat them with salsa, but regular chips...well, I just don't buy them because I KNOW I'll eat them and enjoy every bit of salty, greasy goodness. BUT, what if there was a better alternative to the traditional chip?A chip that, maybe, was made out of VEGETABLES! But that just sounds like it's defeating the purpose, right? You're eating chips because they taste good and you can enjoy all that salty, "chipness" to them...vegetable chips, tasty? Nah. But I'm here to tell you...I'm a new … [Read more...]
