I’m Back!

Dearest blog friends, I am terribly sorry that I have been absent over the past 3 months.  It was never my intention, but as you all know, sometimes life just gets super busy.  As for me, life was INSANELY busy this semester with grad school.  In fact, it was almost unbearable!  The two classes that I more »

Master Bedroom: King Sized

We’ve been living with a queen sized bed for a while now.  It was the perfect size when it was just Danny and I.  It wasn’t too bad once we added Hurley to the mix either.  But now that we have added Django to our family, our sleeping arrangements have become a little crowded.  :( more »

Banana Nut Muffins {Paleo Style}

Eating Paleo definitely hasn’t been easy.  It has presented me with many challenges over the past few years, but I have to admit that despite these difficulties, living the Paleo lifestyle feels right to me.

My Pumpkin Inspired Front Porch Makeover

So I have been wanting to do something with our front porch for a while now… just haven’t found the time to actually sit down and do it.  While I can’t do anything drastic {like paint the front door… since we are just renting for the time being}, I can bring in a few accessories more »

A New Craze: No-Carve Pumpkins!

It seems that everywhere you look lately, the new craze seems to be a no-carve pumpkin… well, at least on Pinterest and all over the blog world.  :)  This year, I’m jumping on that bandwagon because I absolutely LOVE this idea for two reasons:  1) I hate the mess that comes with carving a pumpkin more »

I can’t believe that September has already come and gone!  It seems as if it literally FLEW by!  With the start of school already about a month in, it seems that things are finally starting to slow down a little {at least I sure hope so!}  Teaching and grad school have kept me busy and more »
