A Review of the Hoover SteamScrub 2-in-1 Steam Mop & a Giveaway! #powerofsteam

Ask my husband the one chore that I avoid like the plague and he will say vacuuming. I *hate* vacuuming. I will sooner clean a bathroom than vacuum. I don’t know why, I’ve just never liked it. Dusting is a close second. I do however like doing laundry, but that’s because things smell nice after. Needless to say there’s a running joke about how I never clean our floors (my husband vacuum’s 99% of the time in this house). So…

I was going to do a food craft for Valentine’s Day this year – yes I said food, possibly a beverage – but our kitchen is in shambles right now. So I went to do what I do best. Cards.

A review of Leef iBridge & a Giveaway!

It would be lovely if every time Apple released an iPhone we could run out and buy one and have a million new Gigabyte’s to use to our heart’s content. Real life doesn’t always work that way. For all of last year my beloved iPhone 5S was really starting to show its age and there was never ever enough storage space. It was 16 GB and if you’re laughing it’s because you know that pain. The famous “You do not…

The unintentional fireplace mantel makeover

Ever start a project around your home that was supposed to take all of 5 mins? Ok maybe 15. Then you start doing it and it cascades into problem after problem and the next thing you know you’ve painted an entire bathroom because you decided to change a shelf and didn’t like how it looked? Something like that. Well that’s this story. It’s called the time we thought popping of a small grapevine wood motif off of our fireplace mantel…

How Mrs. Meyer’s will make you love cleaning and a Giveaway!

I hate cleaning. No really, I hate cleaning. I love having a clean home but the entire process of getting there is a whole other level of “My name is No.” Short of having Snow White and her crew of whimsical singing woodland creatures show up to teach me to make the whole process enjoyable, it’s not going to happen. You know what makes it better? Mrs. Meyer’s. Why? Because their products smell like you want to clean. When the…

New Year, New Blog Layout and thoughts about the New Generation of Bloggers

Yesterday, after months of debating, I went online and got myself an updated blog theme. The last time I had an update was 4 years ago so I am a bit overdue for a face lift. (Thank you Stacey for carrying me for the past 4 years with your amazing design. I will be forever grateful for all of your help.) The thing that was unusual for me about this move is that I am the type of person who…

How to spend an extraordinary amount of money the first year you own your home

I was going to title this post something boring and SEO friendly for Google like “5 things you should know before you buy a home” or “Home Ownership: Not just granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances”. But let’s face it, this title is far more realistic given our past year. Because this a post about the extraordinary amount of money we put into our new home this year that I can’t style, stage or remotely benefit from on Pinterest.…

Christmas Decor Snippets

A good home decor blogger would have already staged and photographed a proper Holiday home tour for you this year and posted it in November. Maybe next year that will be me. This year I am asking Santa to bring us a new dishwasher because ours decided to break and sprung a huge leak that caused major damage in the kitchen…that I just finished painting. We currently have MDF duct taped “floor” over a sub floor. Good times. Because of that…
