Butternut Squash Brisket Chili

I have this favorite brisket recipe I love making.  The problem is, it always leaves us with a ton of left overs!  I often like to make it when I am cooking dinner for a new neighbor or a friend who just had a baby.  It easily feeds two families. This time I tried something […]

Bumbo Chair Recall Updates

A recent stop at my local thrift store scored me a brand new looking baby bumbo seat for $3.  I am stoked! The bumbo seat retails for $40 to $45 and $50 if you buy one with the attachable tray.  Clearly the Salvation Army had no idea what this bumbo chair was or they would […]

Easter Basket Cake!

I saw this cake Allrecipes magazine.  Its pretty cute and easy to make.  I had some out of town company come for a few days so I made this for dessert for everyone.  The kids loved the M&M’s on it. I used M&M’s on the sides (took 1.5 bags), marshmallow easter candy on the top, and […]

Refinished Antiqued Night Stand

This was a really fun project!  It was one of my first pieces to refinish when we moved to Florida.  I recommend starting with something small to work on for your first project. This is my Mother-In-Laws 30plus year old night stand.  They gave it to us several years ago with a matching armoire.  It […]

Monkey Birthday Cake!

I recently made this monkey cake for a special 2 year old in my life.  She loves monkey’s and is constantly singing “No More Monkey’s Jumping On the Bed.”  It was pretty time consuming making all the stars for the fur, but it turned out awesome! I researched lots of different monkey cakes, but in […]

Good Will Steals for DIY projects!

We have a really nice Good Will thrift store near us.  I can usually stop by and find some treasures for really good prices!  I recently found a sturdy desk for $5 and a queen size head board for $5 also.Nice and sturdy desk, but needs a little work!     The desk is very […]

ABC’s 25 Days of Christmas shows!

Yeah, it’s Christmas time!  I love all the fun Christmas shows on TV this time of year.  They always get us in the mood for Christmas!  Watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Charlie Brown’s Christmas, and Polar Express together at Christmas time has become a family tradition for us. I thought I would post ABC’s […]

Delicious Oreo Cupcakes!

I made these delicious cupcakes for my baby brother’s birthday.  I say baby brother since he is the youngest of us 7 kids, but he actually just turned 22.  🙂  Once the baby brother, always the baby brother! He is so much the cool bachelor that I can only lure him to hang out with […]

Easy DIY Fall Wreath

I love making wreaths.  Every since my first wreath two Christmas’s ago, I just can’t stop!  They are so easy and inexpensive.  I give them as teacher gifts for the holidays as well. This fall wreath cost me about $5 to make.  The wreath part itself was on sale for $2.99 at Michaels.  Then you […]

DIY: Refinished Kitchen Table and Chairs

Remember when I refinished my buffet?  I ended up redoing the kitchen table and chairs to match!  This is a set we have had for quite a while now and has survived three moves and three children. It was pretty beat up so I was really anxious to refinish it once we got settled here […]
