I love orchids in our home because they offer the feel of fresh flowers but they last (usually!) much, much longer.  In the right conditions, I've had orchids keep blooms for 4-5 months.  And then I've had others that have lasted a matter of days.  But, for the...

Here is our little bungalow. I just love this house. The interior of our house hasn't needed any major updates except for new appliances, but the exterior when we moved here needed MAJOR help.  We added the fence almost immediately after we purchased the house to k...

When we got our new playroom set up, we brought in a large shelving unit from our living room to house the television and toys.  I have found that by displaying the toys openly on the shelves, rather than sitting a basket on each shelf to disguise the toys, my children...

The title of this post is a big assumption but I'm guessing that everyone who reads this is guilty of at least one or two things on this list.  If you're not, good for you.  I for one was guilty of several.  I like to think of myself as clean and neat and organ...

Yes, you read that title correctly.  There are no noodles in this lasagna.  That's because my husband and I (yes, this carb-aholic has finally joined him), are on the Keto Diet.  I'm on day six and it isn't easy but it is becoming a little more tolerable as...

About a year ago (gosh, how time flies!) I posted about how we were thinking about trading in our formal dining room and instead turn it into a playroom for our kiddos.  It was a really big decision for me because I hated the idea of a) giving up a formal dining room a...
