I want to start this first with that fact that this is my TWO year blogiversary!
Can you believe I’ve had this blog of mine for 2 years now!!!! I can’t get over how fast the time has gone and how much I have had planned for this baby of mine. I started it to have a place to share things I love and to give little life updates, kind of like the one you’re about to read. I wanted to grow a community of people that enjoyed doing some of the same things I love and I can’t tell you how thankful I am for each and every one of you. I have had some amazing opportunities and have had some of my biggest supporters in the crazy endeavor I started.
Beginners Guide To House Plants
Let me just start by saying that I am NOT a plant expert by any means.
In fact I was known to have a black thumb.
I love fall not only because of the cooler weather and sweaters but because you can wear all of the dark vampy lipsticks around! My favorite colors to wear are the very subtle oranges, deep reds, and the purples. When I volunteered at Kellans school the other day I was wearing this darker purple lip and this little 4 year old girl told me she LOVED my purple lipstick!! So there you have it folks purple lips are toddler approved!
Chili is a staple in our house come fall/winter time. A huge perk is any dinner I can make in the crockpot. It’s so convenient to start in the middle of the day after school drop-off and not have to worry about it again until dinner time! This chili recipe feeds about 8-10 people so it’s perfect if you want to invite friends over or have plenty of leftovers!
I can’t believe how many requests I’ve received from all of you about essential oils! I don’t really share essentials on any of my social media platforms but we do use them in our home. I had someone specifically request a list of fall essential oil combos and I thought that was a great idea! I do tend to use essential oils more in the winter so sharing our favorite combos is easy!
I’ve had a huge outpour of interest in making my DIY wooden headboard! I think most of you were shocked at how cheap it was to make yourself and trust me when I say I was just as shocked! I’ve been looking everyone to buy one including big furniture stores and even our local Ross and they all seemed extremely pricey. The cheapest one I found was still running about $145. The crazy part is, I made mine for under $55! 52.31 to exact!!!
If you’ve followed along on my Instagram account for the last month then you know we’ve turned our mother-in-law suite into an Airbnb. This has been so much better then we could have ever expected! I never in a million years would have thought that this could be a real source of income for us. We live in a small town but surprisingly we have been so busy. I came up with a list of a few items I think are a must to get your room, house, or rental property ready for Airbnb guests.
