What We Learned From DIYing Our Pool

  If you've been following me on Instagram and Facebook, you know that our pool is FINALLY done!  It wasn't a super long process, but the two and a half months it was being built started to feel like an eternity.  If you didn't know it yet, we decided to forego hiring a big pool company to build it and opted for the DIY approach.  We subbed the contractors out ...

Second-Hand Ice Chest Makeover


About a year and a half ago, our neighbors offered us this metal ice chest after they had gotten a new one.  I instantly accepted and I had the idea of painting it, but it just never happened.  It sat in our garage glaring at me every time I walked past it and I'm pretty sure my husband was glaring at me too, since it was another thing taking up space.  We don't entertain much in ...

Chemical Free Spring Cleaning – And a Giveaway!!!


  It's that time of year again when we all start to get the urge to get some spring cleaning done.  I'll be honest, spring cleaning isn't exactly my favorite thing to do.  With two little boys and a dog, it seems like the second I deep clean a room, they figure out a way to bring it back to its original state.  Having said that, my cleaning arsenal is now equipped with a ...
