Freshening Up For Spring

Cate Mezyk - March 10, 2015

If I had my way, my home would turn into one constant makeover project. As soon as I finish one room, I’m onto another. My only problem? Budget. That silly husband of mine doesn’t seem to think that money grows on trees. I keep TRYING to convince him, but he won’t listen to reason. So, my projects have to be cost effective, to say the …

Glue Gun Bracelet Craft-7

My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different.

thrifted DIY side table-

When I moved into our new house last November I started with a clean slate. Our living room furniture found a home in the kids’ loft. Our old familyroom furniture went directly to the unfinished basement for the kid’s entertainment area. Which left my front sitting room and new family room empty. Yay! Yay! Except for the little detail of los dollares. My tastes are not matching …

Snacks on the run.  That’s my family each and every day of the summer. I need help ensuring my family eats healthy on the go.  I am by nature a fly-by-the-seat of my pants kinda girl and as it serves me well when unexpected road-bumps occur… it’s not as handy when I’m unprepared at the park, pool, zoo or ValleyFair.  I’m forced to buy over-priced junk food.  Gross! So …
