This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PowerfulFusionClean #CollectiveBias I am slowly but surely coming to the realization that I am not the only one in the house who can, and should be, doing the cleaning.  I have two very capable teenagers, and a very eager six year old, who should be helping me around the house.  Right?  This summer, we are implementing a cleaning schedule, and along the way, I {Read More}

DIY Vine Wrapped Monogram Wreath

Since we moved into our new house this past fall, I have been decorating our front door with wreaths for each season.  I have learned the last few months, that I need bigger wreaths on our door!  I don’t know if it is the size of the door, the distance of our house from the street, or the elevation, but the first few I made looked so small!  In our old house, they would have been perfect. But not this one! {Read More}

Kicked Up Parmesan Chicken

I struggle to get my oldest to eat chicken.  Grilled?  No.  Chicken fajitas?  No.  BBQ?  No. Homemade Chicken Tenders?  Maybe.  If it isn’t from a restaurant, and extra crispy and friend, he’s not into it.  So on night’s when we have chicken on the menu, he already comes to the table with the attitude that he isn’t going like it, but he eats it anyway.  However, when we sat down to dinner last week, I told him I had tried {Read More}

Fairy Garden Fit for a Princess

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ReadySetGro #CollectiveBias My daughter started some flower seeds in a “fairy garden” she had received in her Easter basket.  It is one of those little plastic greenhouses that you decorate on the outside, and then plant the seeds to grow them until they are mature enough to plant in the flower bed. Well, this put the idea of an actual fairy garden in her little head, {Read More}
