Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love the time spent with family and friends, taking the kids to the parade, watching fireworks and eating lots of delicious food. Our 4th of July spread usually includes burgers, brats, salad, watermelon and a variety of desserts. This year is sure to be a hot one (just like every other year), so we will definitely be cooling … [Read more...]

Benefits of Having a Discover Credit Card

Discover it Credit Card

As someone who is mindful of saving and spending wisely, I recommend taking a conservative approach to using credit cards. If you are not disciplined about paying off your balance each month, you will end up paying interest and will risk hurting your credit if you miss a payment. It's easy to find yourself in debt if you're not careful. With that said, credit cards can be a … [Read more...]

One of the hardest things about running a small household is figuring out how to keep everybody entertained. Holidays and day trips are fairly easy to plan, but they can add up quickly.

Mohawk ArmorMax Hardwood Flooring

My husband and I have been talking about tearing out the carpet in our living room and hallway and replacing it with hardwood floors for about two years now. We keep saying we are going to do it, but never do. A couple of weeks ago, we started looking at flooring so we are making progress at least. The plan is to have the project completed by the end of summer. In our search … [Read more...]

Get Your Daily Dose of Goodness with Naked Juice

Naked Juice Proteins & Greens

My journey to live a healthier lifestyle has come a long way in the last two and a half years. I went from hardly ever exercising to lifting weights five days a week and doing HIIT two to three days a week. I have the fitness aspect down, but still need to work on my diet. I love food so it is hard for me to eat healthy all the time. I do my best to avoid processed foods and … [Read more...]

Make the Perfect Iced Coffee at Home with International Delight

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the sunshine, warm air, trips to the lake and evenings at the baseball field. It's been extra hot here this past week so we've been staying cool by going to the pool and enjoying some cold treats. While the kids use the warm weather as an excuse to overindulge in popsicles, I use it to support my iced coffee addiction. It's my go-to as … [Read more...]

Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Shop Your Way Moving

Boost Your Curb Appeal with Shop Your Way Moving

When we moved into our newly built home four years ago, the yard needed a lot of work. The front lawn was almost dead and it was full of weeds from the builder not taking care of. We had to aerate and fertilize it multiple times to bring it back to life. The backyard was just dirt so we had to landscape and lay sod before we could even use it. Over time we have done a lot to … [Read more...]

Amazing Wedding Dresses Made Out of Toilet Paper

Wedding Dress Made Out of Charmin Toilet Paper

When you think of toilet paper, what's the first thing that comes to mind? My guess is it has nothing to do with wedding dresses. The two normally don't belong in the same sentence, unless you are referring to the Cheap Chic Weddings Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest. The 11th annual event took place last week in New York City. Nearly 1,500 dresses were entered this year and … [Read more...]
