Stylish Alternatives to White Subway Tile

Our kitchen backsplash

Hello Dear Readers.  Please don't let the title of this post steer you wrong, I actually love a good white subway tile.  It's stylish, cost effective and classic, however sometimes it's good to shake things up a bit so, I rounded up some alternatives that pack a style punch.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, June 2018


Hello Dear Readers and Happy First Day of June!  Hope you are all as excited about June as I am.  I'm excited about the first official day of Summer but most importantly I'm excited because I start a new job on Monday.  I'm going back to a company I worked for seven years ago.  I always loved working there and when I decided to leave it was a rough decision for me.  So, I'm really happy and grateful for the opportunity to go back.  Plus, I'm super happy about working with my old friends again!

Mother's Day Brunch 2018


Hello Dear Readers.  Hope all the moms out there had a fabulous Mother's Day.  As many of you know, Dave and I host a Mother's Day brunch every year for our moms and I love to pick a different theme every year.  This year's inspiration struck when I came across this floral fabric on Hawthrone Threads.  I loved the large floral print and the colors of the fabric and so I decided to use it to make the tablecloth for this year's brunch.

Mama's Only 25 - A Cocktail Tribute to Mom


Hello Dear Readers.  If you've been with me awhile you know I enjoy creating my own cocktails.  With Mother's Day just over two weeks away, I thought it'd be a good time to introduce you to my latest creation called Mama's Only 25.  I plan to serve it at the Mother's Day brunch I will be hosting this year.  My inspiration for this cocktail was a classic French 75, hence my cheeky naming convention.  I replaced the lemon juice with grapefruit juice and the gin with vodka and just like that a bubbly and refreshing mom worthy drink was born.

I like to think that I was a pretty good kid growing up and didn't give my mom too many reasons to wine down or indulge in a cocktail to destress.  My deepest apologies Mom.  I'd like to make it up to you and to moms everywhere, so without further ado I present to you the Mama's Only 25.

Sewing a Pillow with Decorative Border



Hello Dear Readers.  We updated the area rug in our living room recently and once we did, the pillows that were on the couch clashed horribly.  When I told Dave that a pillow update was necessary ASAP, he laughed and told me that our house had way too many pillows and that I clearly had a problem.  Too many pillows in our house?!?!  Silly husband!  I let him know that his hallucinations were really no laughing matter and that when he experiences them he should lie down on the couch and rest his head on a non-clashy pillow until they subside.  His subsequent eye roll was followed by silence and since the sound of silence is also the sound of defeat...I set off to work!
