Our mudroom / laundry room was the definition of “builders standard.” When we built our house 10 years ago we were trying to cut costs wherever we could so we didn’t do any upgrades in this space and boy you could tell! There’s nothing inspiring about it. Laundry is boring enough, I needed a little cheer to make it less of a chore! Plus some storage for shoes and outdoor gear wouldn’t hurt.
Road Trip! We are off the the lake this weekend so that means spending some time in the car. Link and I love listening to music but I am sick of all that “kids” music that is crazy catchy but downright annoying! I knew that I could do better and put together something that we will both enjoy. Here are 15 songs that your kids AND you will enjoy! Happy Weekend!
My friend Kayley recently celebrated her Grandma’s 80th birthday. When she sent me an adorable photobooth frame idea that she found on Pinterest I was instantly excited to make one for her!

We are a family of bookworms. My husband, myself and now Link all love reading. We often visit used bookstores, libraries, and make family trips to Indigo on the weekends. If we aren’t reading you can probably find us at the zoo so I thought I’d combine the two and create a list of the best animal books for kids. Continue reading
I’ve been on the search for the perfect face cleanser but I couldn’t find something that I loved or that wasn’t too expensive. I have oily skin that’s prone to breakouts and have been a long time user of Oxy pads. I know that they are quite harsh and full of chemicals but they worked the best for me. I am very sensitive to perfumy scents and the ease of the pad meant I consistently used them. I’ve tried many different brands of wipes and pads but they either irritated my skin or were quite pricy and they all seem so wasteful when you use them twice a day.
This macaroni & cheese is the perfect comfort food with a healthy kick!
It’s not easy to feed your family a healthy home cooked meal that is quick and easy and they will actually enjoy. I know that kids need to learn to eat vegetables in their natural form and hopefully learn to like them. (Though I am still waiting on that for myself.) But sometimes it’s nice to sit down to a meal together with no bartering or whining. One that doesn’t involve fast food.
This macaroni & cheese will have them gobbling up their vegetables without even knowing it. Even begging for seconds!

Take a look, I’m sure you’ll find something that you won’t want to put down! Continue reading
