Open road. Fun, dance in your seat music. Beautiful scenery. Feet up on the dash. Hands out the window. Fresh air blowing through your hair.
And… that lasts for about five minutes if you have kids in the car with you!
You have about two hours of your eight hour trip down in the books and the questions start piling up. It’s almost like you are suffocated by, “How much longer? When will we be there? Mom, I am so bored!”
Yikes! Okay maybe I am changing my mind about going on a road trip!
Hold the phone! Road trips can still be a lot of fun even with little ones buckled up in back!

Cakes, cookies, pizza, hot dogs, chocolates, ice cream, candy, chips, and dips. Oh man! For me, the very first thing I think about when it comes to throwing a party is the food!
What about you? What’s the first thing you start thinking about when you hear the word party?
With all the amazing food around, you cannot forget the chilled drinks! Our family’s favorites are yummy juices, root beer, and water. Well, the water is more my favorite but the others are a majority vote!
A really popular trend right now in party décor is incorporating vintage furniture. I for one, am a huge fan! I love the charm that an old piece can bring to any party theme. Even if you have a modern theme, a pretty piece of furniture nicely tied into your theme can make a huge statement!
This idea is what brought on the inspiration for this DIY drink station.

The feeling you get when the warm sunrays shine down on your face trickles through your entire body. Summer is almost here and you might be wondering where you are going to find the money to replenish the sad remains of a winter wardrobe lingering in your closet.
Not all of us can afford to go out and buy brand new clothes with each season. Or maybe you can? If that’s not you, then you are in the right place!
My mind is telling me that I really need an entire new closet full of clothes but my wallet is telling me that I am only allowed to go pick out one item from the clearance rack.
With these three ideas on how to refashion your winter wardrobe into summer, I think we will be able to satisfy both our minds and wallets!
How much money did you spend on your last party? Do you even know? Womp womp womp… My guess is that if you totaled up every single receipt from your party it would be over $100, easily! Come take a tour with me through my daughter’s 5 year old tribal princess party to find out tips on how to throw your next party on a budget.
Does anyone else get as excited as I do when I head out to the thrift store? I’m not sure exactly what it is but the excitement of not knowing what I’m going to find just makes me so happy! I guess it’s kinda like a treasure hunt!
When it comes to repurposing or refinishing thrift store finds, spray paint is your best friend! It makes anything look new again and you can make any thrift store treasure match your home décor perfectly.
It’s the last few weeks of winter and everyone is getting a little stir crazy up in here! Okay, maybe not so much down here in San Diego. But I do feel for you my friend, who live in other areas where it is still cold.
Remember, I lived in Idaho for about five years. So I do know what it’s like those last few weeks of winter just hoping spring was near!
That is why my kiddos and I have put together these boredom busters to help you guys make it through the end of winter.
One of my very favorite things to do is find something in a store that I really really want but there is no way I could afford it. Well, I guess that’s not the fun part. The fun part comes when I go home and figure out a way to make that same thing for way less!
That’s the case here with creating your own DIY photo canvas. This project is super straight forward and simple. I was able to make this entire project for only $5!
