Michael’s Gift Card Giveaway!

Hi Friends!

I know it’s been kinda quite around here lately. This is a busy time of the year for me at work, so unfortunately I haven’t had as much time to craft, cook, write {have a life}…you get the idea :)

But don’t worry…I’ll be back soon with lots of new stuff! In the meantime how does a giveaway sound to you!? To celebrate spring time I’m teaming up with the My Crafty Spot contributors to give one lucky reader the chance to win a $50 gift card to Michaels.



8 Bridal Shower Ideas


One of the best parts of spring time is that it leads up to a very exciting season…wedding season!

{Also known to some as summer time :) }

But, you can’t get to wedding season until you make it through wedding shower season…which tends to be now. So, if you are planning a shower and looking for some ideas today’s post is for you!

Sweet Potato Nachos Recipe

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

My weekend was perfect thanks to a certain Big Ten team {Wisconsin} beating Kentucky…


Not because I filled out a bracket this year, or because I’m a Wisconsin fan…but because Wisconsin’s win helped my team remain the last team to hold a perfect season record…

IU 76

The Indiana Hoosier’s 1976 undefeated team.

And we {we meaning IU that is} also signed a much needed recruit. It was a great weekend for basketball…and the fun continues tonight with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game.

In honor of the game {and all the basketball excitement} today I’m sharing an easy recipe with you. Something a little sweet, but salty…Sweet Potato Nachos!

March Faves

Hello Friends!

Another month of 2015 is the books…March :)

This month it finally warmed up a bit {yet still snowed and was cold too…the joys of living in Indiana}. And like I promised last month I got out of the house a bit more…yay!

Here’s my recap for the month of March:

8 Spring Wreath Ideas

Good Morning…and Happy Spring!

Even though the weather forecast calls for snow this week in Indiana we all know spring officially started on Friday {hello Mother Nature can we get up to speed please?!}. So what better way to kick off the start of a new season than with some DIY spring wreath ideas!

I mean maybe if we all get inspired and start to spread some spring vibes at our front door it will keep the colder temperatures {and snow} away for good!

Here’s hoping anyways…now onto the wreaths :)

March Madness & The IU Basketball Experience

When you live in Indiana {and have grown up with a basketball obsession} March Madness is kinda a big deal. Now…I know this isn’t a sports blog in any sense of the word, but when it comes to basketball, tournaments and the month of March I can’t help but get roped into all the excitement…or should I say madness :)

You may or may not have heard that my beloved Indiana Hoosiers made it to the big dance this year. Thank goodness! So, in honor of their game today {at 2:45PM EST to be exact} I find it only fitting to dedicate today’s post to my favorite basketball team, and share a little bit more about the IU basketball experience.

Project: Teeth Whitening Part Two


A few weeks ago I talked about having braces, how I developed a slight teeth obsession and my latest beauty project…whitening my teeth. Fun, girly and completely personal stuff :)

For this project I am partnering with Smile Brilliant, and last time showed you how I created my custom-fitted teeth whitening trays. Today I wanted to give you a little update on my teeth whitening treatments…and breakdown the process a bit further for those of you that may be thinking about giving this a try yourself {which I’d highly recommend ;)}
