CAMPING – Prince Galliztin State Park

Our first adventure in the camping was this month. We went up to our favorite get-a-way, Prince Galliztin State Park. We love just the quietness of it. It is the off-season though. Take a look at our video of our day away. We make pizza […]

Beautiful Bedroom Redo

Beautiful Bedroom Redo

Finished! I love the sound of that word. I can’t wait to show you all the beautiful thing I put in our master bedroom. We have been enjoying our bedroom.


Before the painting and decorating
AFTER!

What a fun project. Here are some tips when you are decorating a master bedroom.

  1. Lighting – Have different light sources in your room. I have 4 lamps, 2 ceiling lights, and a string of lights on the curtains. Oh, and a few candles!


2. Texture – I incorporated burlap, ruffles, wood, black iron – it all works and makes the room interesting!

3. Pillows – Pillows add depth to a flat surface. They also say, “comfort”. Add pillows to benches, beds, chairs, or floor. Wherever you need a little something. They also draw attention to that area.

4. Personal Touches – Add pictures of the family, something you made, or just something that is special to you.

Ken made these shelves with some boards we already had and we stained them. I added pictures and d├ęcor.

5. Greenery and Flowers – Bringing the outdoors in, will perk up a room real quick. Don’t forget them. If you can’t quite figure out what is not right in a room, check to see if you have greens and a pop of flowers here and there.

Your bedroom should be a place you enjoy – love it!

Check out the makeover!

Have a great day!!

My Lemon Tree Journey (Part 2)

My Lemon Tree Journey (Part 2)

THE LEMON PLANTS ARE OVER A YEAR OLD! I know, it’s crazy! In the last blog post, all of the plants were still in my bedroom. Theres only three now. No, I didn’t kill them. Each plant is doing well on its own.

LEMON TREE JOURNEY PART 1

These are the last of the three still at home. They are doing well and still growing.

Over the past year, they have only been fed water. I am starting to use fertilizer and in a few weeks plan to re-pot them. The plan is to do another blog post to show you the fertilizer brand and my thoughts about the product.

From a lot of research that I have read, they say it takes up to 3 years before any fruit is produced. Since a lemon tree takes up to 2 -3 years before they produce any fruit, I am excited to know I am one year closer to having my own lemons.

A friend of mine was talking to me about my lemon plant. We both have different thoughts on growing a lemon tree. She couldn’t grasp why I would try to grow a lemon tree and not get any fruit for 2-3 years. She said it was easier to just go to the grocery store and buy a lemon. I just stared at her in amazement. She couldn’t grasp the excitement to walk to your own plant, in the kitchen, and make your own lemonade from your own lemons. Don’t worry, I am still friends with this non-supportive person. haha!

I want to just say thank you to ya’ll. You have been such a support and I am glad to know you are enjoying this journey as much as I am.


$5 Easter Basket!

$5 Easter Basket!

I have never done an Easter basket for my children yet and really I never received an Easter basket. We always had a big Easter egg hunt with all the cousins (and believe me, that was plenty! We didn’t miss an Easter basket.) This year […]


My Diary

Post ID:

I have never done an Easter basket for my children yet and really I never received an Easter basket. We always had a big Easter egg hunt with all the cousins (and believe me, that was plenty! We didn’t miss an Easter basket.) This year though, I thought it might be nice to do something small now that Hannah and Leah are old enough to enjoy it! I didn’t want to do anything expensive or with a lot of candy because I knew they were going to be participating in at least one Easter Egg hunt this year! Like most parents with toddlers know, they can barely eat all the candy they get before it goes bad anyway!

This basket cost me $5! (not including the Easter pick) and everything is from the Dollar Tree!! They have TONS of Easter basket goodies and for only $1 it was hard to only pick 4 things! I already had the tissue paper on hand and the baskets were a perfect little size that 4 things were all I needed to fill it! The Easter pick is optional, but I thought it would add a cute touch!

It doesn’t always take a lot of money to do something special for you kids!

I tried to do these baskets up and take the pictures during the girls’ naps. Hannah woke up right as I was finishing up so these won’t be a surprise to her. She informed me “But, I CAN’T wait till Easter!!” So, I think they’ll like these baskets!
