Dirt in a Jar, Laundry Scientists, and Clean Water


I was recently approached about P&G's Children's Safe Drinking Water Program.  If I would like to try it out, and share it with my readers. You bet I hit respond to that email immediately.  Because as you know, I love using this space to educate.  To make the ittiest, bittiest, most microscopic difference...and if I can teach my privileged … [Continue reading...]

Because Cake.


It's been so quiet in this space for the last year.  There are a million reasons for it.  Some good, some just plain lazy, and some centering around the concept of "seasons". I have sat down at this screen more times than I can count to write.  But the words won't come.  The children rouse.  The day begins.  And the quiet space is gone until the … [Continue reading...]

How to design a luxury bathroom for less

A couple of weeks ago, I revealed our master bathroom remodel.  It was a water damage issue so it was mostly covered by insurance, but our original bathroom had lower end finishes so we definitely upgraded when we re-did it.  While we did pay for some of it out of pocket based on our choices, we didn't spend very much more.  I thought I'd share how … [Continue reading...]

Master Bathroom Reveal


After two and a half, what felt like forever, months our master bathroom remodel is finished!

So often I see the quote floating around saying “the problem with social media is that you are comparing your behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel”.  Or something like that.  And I get that.  Truly, I do. I’ve sat in my […]

Habitat for Humanity, Twitter, Prizes, and P&G


Happy Sunday friends! You know that one of my most favoritest things in the whole wide world is when companies use their influence and their brand to Do Good.  It’s something I’m always on the lookout for and I’ve shared various campaigns with you over the years.  So when I was invited to co-host a […]

Baby Girl Garden Shower


My friend Tracy was pregnant (and I say was because she’s since had her baby, because slacker blogger) with her 7th child. Not because the distinction matters, but four of her children are biological and three are adopted.  I only point that out because my uterus gets tired just thinking about that much expanding and […]
