Greek Rice Salad

I’m such a sucker for a good side dish, and this Greek rice salad really hits the spot. In my younger years I was a vegetarian (9 years!) and even still we veer off into the vegetarian side of things every so often. There are only so many green salads to make, and having a […]

Vintage Inspired Hall Passes

I just realized that I never shared these with you, so here you go!  My first year teaching I realized a couple of days before school started that I didn’t have any hall or bathroom passes ready to go for my students. Although this wasn’t an urgent situation, it was one that I wanted to […]

Explore the North Cascades: Winthrop, WA

You might remember that I’m originally from eastern Washington, and each summer we try to take a trip back to my hometown of Winthrop, WA. This summer was no different and I wanted to share a little bit about the area with you! Because we travel over during the summer we always take Highway 20 […]

Faux Concrete Succulent Planters

I’ve been working all summer to spruce up my vintage camper getting it ready for the next big adventure. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I am adding fun decor pieces and these mini faux succulent planters were the perfect addition! I posted on Instagram last April when my hubby and I headed over […]

Spanish Lime Soup

With summer winding down in a lot of parts of the country and preseason football heating up it’s not hard to imagine fall rolling in. The leaves changing color, the cozy sweaters, and the homemade soups.  There is so much I love about fall, and that includes this Spanish Lime soup! I am a sucker […]

Helping Kids Manage Back to School Stress

It’s that time of year again, the season where carefree days of summer give way to fall, which inevitably means a new school year. This transition is often greeted with a mixed bag of emotions for our kids as they head to new classrooms, teachers, grades, and even schools. Kids of all ages, ranging from […]

Explore Mount St. Helens – Ape Cave Adventure

I am an avid lover of the great outdoors, and since we picked up a sweet vintage camper for my birthday this year, it’s been nonstop adventure time. Recently we traveled south the Mount St. Helens to explore the near famous Ape Caves. Now that the kids are getting older what used to be a […]

Cheesy Alfredo Crab and Zoodle Bake

Summer time is the right time to whip out all those zucchini recipes you’ve been pinning during the rest of the year. Things like zucchini taco rolls, zucchini bread, and now this baked crab and zoodle casserole! My husband works for a tribe out here on the Washington coast and even though we get a […]

Harry Potter Back to School Backpack Tag with Cricut

Summer in the Pacific Northwest is a funny animal. It doesn’t warm up and get going until we’re into July and just as we are getting into a swing of things, back to school strikes!  I am trying to take control of the back to school season by creating a few things for my kids […]

Zucchini Taco Rolls

Summertime and the living’s easy. I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm lately! Figuring out how to sneak a few more veggies into my kids diet has been an ongoing adventure around these parts. Luckily, if you add cheese to almost anything my kids are in! I picked up a bunch of zucchini the […]

Faux Suede Earrings made with Cricut

So summer is finally here and thank goodness!  I’ve been feeling in a crafting funk for the past couple of months, wanting to make all the things, but too overwhelmed with school to do anything about it.  School ended a couple of  weeks ago though, and I’ve been a busy girl since then!  I’ve been […]

Crown Molding Framed Instagram Display

I spent spring break trying to spruce up the second floor of our home. I don’t spend a lot of time up there, it’s the kids bedrooms, bathroom, and playroom. I go up each night at bedtime, and sporadically during the day to break up fights or encourage a cleaning party, but hang out, not […]
