DIY| Creating an Exposed Brick Wall using Veneer

I have always wanted to live in a home with exposed brick. In the bathroom, in the bed bedroom, wherever! I secretly go bananas whenever I hear about individuals wanting to cover up the brick in their home. I always want to yell and kick and scream don’t do it! I think it brings so […]

DIY| Making Decorative Baskets out of Cardboard

YUM| Bottoms Up: The Secret to a GD Good Bloody Mary

Sunday’s are usually reserved for a lot of things….like the occasional brunch, catching up on laundry, binge watching Game of Thrones, or perhaps an NFL game in the fall. Some people go to Church or make it point to spend quality time with family. For me, this Sunday involved a pulled glut (butt) muscle and […]

Yum| Sweet Treats: Homemade Twix Bars!

Twix candy bars are probably my favorite candy treat (well, that or a Payday!), and they are usually the first to go whenever we pick up a variety bag of candy for friends or other out of town guests. It’s the perfect trifecta of cookie, caramel, and above all chocolate! My best friend. Just writing […]
