Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce-4

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti is a go-to meal in our family. There’s something for everyone on the table, whether it’s the main, the sides, or the delicious garlicky bread that goes with.  It’s carbs with tomatoes.

Milk Bottle Vases-3

Repurpose/Thrift it: The Milk Bottle

It’s the weekend, and also – according to the calendar – it’s Spring! The days are longer, the kids are bike-riding in the street, and we’re starting to feel that spontaneous get-togethers – the “grab your kid and your lawn chair and come park in our driveway” parties – are going to be more than…

Easter Cupcake Toppers

Hello all-things-that-are-adorable… it’s nearly your time to shine. I feel like while Christmas gets its gold sequins and tacky jewelry on, Valentine’s day can make a fool of itself, and Hallowe’en is where you get to be your alter-ego… Easter is when things are over-the-top cute.  Because I live with two little girls who live…
