You guys, my kitchen is still a construction zone. And I’m sorry that’s all I want to talk about these days, but seriously, my life revolves around my kitchen… so it’s kinda hard for me to not talk about it.

I will also say that it’s definitely not as quick and exciting as the Property Brothers always make it out to be. I still {Read More}

A few months ago I took a girl’s trip to Las Vegas with one of my best friends. She’d never been before so we did just about everything one can do in Las Vegas in just 4 days. We went to the Hoover Dam, went shopping, dancing, did an aerial arts class, saw some shows, way more gambling than I care to admit, and of course – we ate. Oh you better believe we ate. We ate so hard. On {Read More}

It can get really monotonous packing the same ol’ pb&j day after day, after day. My kids get bored with it too. Last year I {Read More}
